Naomi Preizler (born October 12, 1991) is an Argentine fashion model and artist,[9] known for her "longilinear silhouette, long blonde hair and androgynous face."[10]


Although discovered at age 14 by a model scout, Preizler did not begin her international modelling career until she finished high school.[9] She started her national modelling career, however, at age 15.[11] Dubbed the "girl of the moment" by Clarín in 2013,[2] she has walked for Chanel, Givenchy, Balenciaga, Alexander Wang, Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier and Jeremy Scott, among others.[1][2][9] She has also been photographed for Harper's Bazaar Argentina, Vogue Russia, Vogue Italia, Interview, Love and Grit.[1][9][12] Preizler was the face of BAFWEEK fall/winter 2012.[13] She has also sung in BAFWEEK 2013, closing the Desiderata fashion show.[14][15]

Preizler has also gained recognition as an artist. She studied at the New York Academy of Art and Art Students League of New York.[11][16] She usually draws while queuing for fashion castings and fittings, inspired by the clothes and the models.[17] Inspired by Expressionists like Gustav Klimt and Oskar Kokoschka, Preizler usually draws women, "reflective faces" and self-portraits.[11] Some of her sketches are developed into paintings using gaudy colors and exaggerated features.[9] Jean Paul Gaultier owns a watercolor she made of him and Beth Ditto at the finale of his spring/summer 2011 show.[17] The Argentine brand AY Not Dead launched a collection of shirts with drawings by Preizler, which are tributes to Niki de Saint Phalle who focused on the curves of the female body.[10][18] She has also collaborated with Vogue Italia and Harvey Nichols on an illustration project for its spring/summer 2012 collection.[16]

Personal life[edit]

Preziler was raised in an artistic family, her father being an architect and sometimes oil painter, and her grandmother a sculptress.[9][16] Preizler resides in Brooklyn, New York and Buenos Aires.[2][17]

Preizler is of German descent.[11] She is also Jewish.[19][20] Her grandparents were Jewish immigrants who went to Argentina fleeing from Nazism.[21] In the romantic novel festival Romántica Buenos Aires, she paid homage to them through a performance in which she read their love letters, shared apple cake that she cooked with her grandmother's recipe, and wore a dress that belonged to her.[21][22]
