When we are talking about the world of modeling, we should never forget that France is the place when fashion and modeling have started to be what they are today. And when we are talking about French models, we should mention Willy Cartier, who is one of the best known French and world models.
To begin with, he was born on the 15th of September in 1991, and he is 27 at the moment. He was born in Paris, France. It should be also mentioned that he comes from a very famous and artistic family. More precisely, his father’s name is Jack Servoz and he is a well-known painter and writer. When his mother is in question, her name is Lea Cartier and she is a respected dancer.
When his family background is in question, we can say that he comes from a mixed family. More importantly, he himself describes himself as having Breton, Vietnamese, and Senegalese roots. When he was younger, he wanted to become an actor, and he tried everything he could so that he could succeed in this.
This was the reason why his parents enrolled him at Cours Florent, which is a private drama school located in Paris and it is considered to be the best of its kind not only in France but also among the best in the world. He also spent some time in studying dance.
On the other hand, he was noticed by some people and he was offered to start modeling. He accepted and his modeling career started in 2009. It should be also noted that one of his biggest breakthroughs took place in 2010 when he was the part of the Givenchy’s campaign dedicated for Fall/Winter.
His talent was noticed, and some of the most important people in the modeling and fashion industry wanted to work with him. This is the reason why he worked with some of the icons and brands of fashion and modeling such as Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Givenchy, Diesel, and Benetton.
His talent and good looks were also noticed by photographers, and this was the reason why he appeared on numerous covers, some of which include magazines such as Vogue, Marie Claire, Apollo Novo, Elle Man, WAD magazine, V, Numéro etc.
As we have already said, he did not have a significant acting career, and he did not have any prominent roles. As far as his appearances on TV are concerned; we should also mention that he appeared in some commercials that were made for Diesel and Guerlain. He also participated in some videos for some songs; and he thus collaborated with artists such as Shy’m, Alain Souchon, Fran Ocean, etc.
