When Joséphine Le Tutour introduces herself, the Brittany native is charmingly direct: “I’m French and I’m 22 years old. I grew up in the countryside. I love traveling when I’m off, but I also get to travel a lot for my job,” she tells us. “What else could I ask for?” Five years ago, Le Tutour won Elite’s “Elite Model Look” contest in France; these days, she’s in campaigns for Max Mara and walks for the likes of Chanel. Her brother, Julian, is also a model.
THE PERSON I ADMIRE THE MOST:

I can’t answer this question.
MY GREATEST ADVENTURE:
I had the chance to swim with dolphins and it was one of the most amazing experience of my life.
EVENTS I WISH I’D WITNESSED:
The last Eurocup!
THINGS I’D LIKE TO IMPROVE ABOUT MYSELF:
I’d like to be able to step back on things more easily.

Sugar Crush. I have to admit, it’s very addictive.
MY GREATEST VICE:
I go shopping too much.
THINGS I’LL BE REMEMBERED BY:
I hope I’ll be remembered for the work I did with my family to improve women’s lives in three villages in Senegal. I’m really proud of that. And proud of my family.
SOME THINGS I’D RATHER FORGET:
I think it’s easier to forget something if you don’t have to talk about it. 😉

Is very simple—being with the people I love is all I need.
ONE LAST FAVOR I’D LIKE TO ASK:
Being able to keep my life as it is for as long as I can.
