Divine Inspiration

Pint-sized Lou Lou Roberts is making up for what she lacks in stature with an alluring beauty and persona which has industry insiders predicting huge things for the nineteen year old newcomer. Standing at 172 cm in height and represented by MC2 Model Management in New York, Lou Lou has been featured in Muse Magazine, Elle Italia and most recently V Magazine, captured by star duo Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. Van Lamsweerde & Matadin, who normally have their lens trained on modelling's biggest names, have adopted the relative unknown as their muse. Speaking with style.com, the duo reveals "We saw Lou Lou on the cover of Treats! magazine and flew her over from Paris (where she studies) to New York to meet us. Her face resembles a young Penélope Cruz and her body is like that of Kate Moss. Our work is so much about the girl in the clothes and she provides us with so many new inspirations."

Lou Lou has since shot a Bulgari campaign with the pair and is featured in a series of stunning intimate, nude portraits on the photographic duo's website inezandvinoodh.com. Lou Lou recalls her modelling experiences before her fateful meeting with Inez & Vinoodh to the Cut, "(I didn't) have many good ideas about modelling. I had a lot of prejudices about it...sometimes, it's difficult to be a model because you are alone, and people are not always nice with you. It depends. Nobody was nice with me before Inez and Vinoodh, people didn't care, but now it's nice. Things are different." The Imagist's Wayne Sterling is also a new fan, posting recently "Lou Lou herself has the kind of heedless self-possession that does indeed feel cinematic. I missed by a morning, the chance to interview this girl-most-wanted but she certainly remains at the top of my current wish-list for a sit down."
