Jade Foret (born 26 September 1990) is a Belgian model whose family roots are in France.[1] She is the wife of French businessman Arnaud Lagardère.[2] A brunette with blue eyes, she is 1.83 m tall.[3]


She is the daughter of Maïté Foret, the fourth child of a family of five.[1] She started modelling at the young age of 12[4] with the Newmodels agency in 2003. At age 13, in 2004, she became famous in Belgium for a backless picture which was displayed as a gigantic poster for the Levis paint brand (100 m by 20) on the Madou Plaza Tower in Brussels.[5] At the same age, she went on the catwalk for Armani in Italy.[6]

When she was 16 she assisted SOS Children's Villages in Morocco.[6]

In 2009, she had a short and stormy liaison with soccer player Émile Mpenza,[7] which concluded bitterly.[8] She continued working as a top model and decided to move to New York. She joined the agency One Management.[9] She also tried singing and played bit parts in films and on television.

In 2010 she met businessman Arnaud Lagardère and became his partner.[2] They both appeared in a short making-of of a photo shoot in Lagardère's country residence in Rambouillet[10] in July 2011 for the Belgian daily Le Soir.[11] This video became an instant Internet phenomenon.[1] It also led some employees from the industrial conglomerate of Arnaud Lagardère to challenge his ability to manage the group.[12]

In May 2012 Arnaud Lagardère confirmed that the couple will marry soon and was expecting a baby in September 2012.[13] The baby girl, Liva, was born on 16 September 2012. They married in Paris on 24 May 2013.[14]

They have also a second daughter, Mila (born 9 March 2014) and a son, Nolan (born 16 January 2016)
