Loli Bahia

Model

The French model’s debut on the Louis Vuitton runway in 2020 came at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, but hasn’t stopped her from becoming a breakout star.

Loli Bahia

Loli Bahia is a model based in France. She was first scouted after participating in a modelling competition, attracting the attention of Parisian agencies. She previously studied at a music conservatory. 

After making her runway debut in 2020 at Louis Vuitton’s Autumn/Winter 2021 show, the French model has had a meteoric ascent. Since then, she has walked the runways of Saint Laurent, Chanel, Miu Miu, Valentino, Loewe, Schiaparelli, Burberry, Givenchy, Fendi, Max Mara and Prada, among others.

Bahia has found a frequent partner in Chanel, which made her its runway show opener for its Cruise 2023 collection and announced her as the face of its AutumnWinter 2023/24 ready-to-wear collection. 

Photographer duo Inez & Vinoodh, who shot the Chanel campaign, described her look in an interview with Numero Magazine as “eccentric, daring, androgynous,” and “a mix of delicacy and quiet strength.”  

In 2021, she was nominated for Models.com’s Model of the Year Breakout award, and then for the Model of the Year award in 2022. Bahia is signed to Women Management Paris.
