30 Stunning Photos of Swedish Model Ingmari Lamy in the 1960s and ’70s

Swedish fashion model Ingmari Lamy was on vacation in Paris when a model scouted her in a night club. The next day she took some test shots with a local photographer. Unbeknownst to her, those photos would wind up on the cover of Harpers Bazaar magazine. From there, Lamy signed with a Parisian agent Models International. Her success led her to model in Italy, England, Germany, United States, and Sweden. In June 1968, she appeared on the cover of Harpers Bazaar. In September 1971, she appeared on the cover of Italian Vogue.

In 1972, Lamy signed with Elite Model Management in Paris. She was the face of Yves Saint Laurent fragrance. At the time she only earned 10,000 for an ad that was used for 5 years. Lamy noted that if she had landed that campaign 10 years later she would have yielded a million dollar contract.

Despite being only 5’ 7.5” and well beyond her 20s, Lamy has walked for Martin Margiela, Yohji Yamamoto, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Galliano. Since 1991, she has appeared on the covers of Tara Magazine, Red Tee Magazine, and M Magazine in Sweden. She has also worked with notable photographers such as Bob Richardson, David Bailey and Gil Bensimon.

In May 2004, Lamy appeared on Brigitte Magazine’s 50th anniversary issue along with Anna Huber. In 2011, she appeared in a campaign for Lanvin for H&M. Lamy is a fashion blogger for Rodeo Magazine.
