Early life[edit]

Career[edit]

Modeling[edit]

Bochert was noticed by an agent in 2002 while working as a waitress at a restaurant in Los Angeles.

The model debuted on the catwalks of Paris for Ann Demeulemeester in March 2002 and was immediately noticed for her androgynous looks, which—in September of the same year—led to an appearance on the cover of British magazine i-D.

In May 2003, Bochert starred in the documentary Models: The Real Skinny.[1] Despite her modeling success, in 2004, Bochert purportedly announced her withdrawal from the catwalks, to focus on her music. However, in 2008, she returned to work, signing new contracts with Women Management and Elite Model Management.

Bochert has appeared in editorials for Italian and German Vogue, Elle, W, V, and i-D. She has appeared on the covers of Italian and Japanese Vogue, i-D, and French Numéro. She has walked the runways for Bottega Veneta, Versace, Dries Van Noten, Tom Ford, Prada, Loewe, Givenchy, Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Sonia Rykiel, Alexandre Vauthier, Anna Sui, Michael Kors, Missoni, Dior, Thierry Mugler, Lanvin, Prabal Gurung, Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, DSquared2, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Vera Wang, Rodarte, Max Mara, Balenciaga, Viktor & Rolf, Salvatore Ferragamo, Diesel, Diane Von Furstenberg, Jean Paul Gaultier, Roberto Cavalli, Jeremy Scott, Alexander McQueen, Zac Posen, and Céline.

Bochert has appeared in advertising campaigns for Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga, Calvin Klein, Valentino, Phillip Lim, Bvlgari, Lanvin, Diesel, H&M, Christopher Kane, Maison Margiela, Jimmy Choo, Karen Millen, Furla, and Gucci.

Music[edit]

Although she has maintained a career in modeling, Bochert has cited music—namely, her band, Francis Wolf—as her "top priority."[2]

Film[edit]

In 2005, Bochert appeared in musician Kim Gordon's film Perfect Partner.[3]
