Querelle Jansen (born October 14, 1985 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands) is a Dutch model. Her real name is Lisette Jansen; Querelle is her professional name, chosen by an agent who had been looking for a model to name after her favourite literary character, Jean Genet's Georges Querelle.

Querelle's androgynous features and austere aura have landed her a series of editorials with several mainstream publications, including Vogue Italia and Paris, Numéro, i-D, Mixt(e), and V magazine. Marc Jacobs, Burberry, Costume National, H&M, Hugo Boss, Prada, and Miu Miu have all chosen her for their advertisement campaigns. The quirky personal style she presents at castings inspired Marc Jacobs' aesthetic for the spring 2005 Louis Vuitton prêt-à-porter collection [1].

Her runway appearances include Valentino, Versace, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, Chloé, Prada, Rochas, and Burberry. Her image has graced the covers of Zoo magazine (Germany) and Vogue (Russia).[2]

Jansen's friends include Tasha Tilberg, Anouck Lepere, and Marta Berzkalna.[3]
