Louisa Gummer Bio/Wiki
Gummer was born on June 12, 1991, in Los Angeles, California, the youngest daughter of Meryl Streep and the sculptor Don Gummer. Gummer is of Swiss-German descent, German-English-Irish on her mother’s side, Norwegian-German on her father’s side.
She graduated from Poly Prep Country Day School, then went to Vassar College, where she graduated in psychology in 2013. She described her GPA at Vassar College, which her mother Meryl also attended, as “the biggest award I have ever won”.
Born into a family with a long history of entertainers, it was only natural that Louisa carved out a niche for herself in the entertainment industry. From an early age, she accompanied her parents, especially her mother, on the red carpet and it was clear to everyone that she had it in her to go far as a model.
Louisa has shot campaigns for big names like Dior, H&M, and others. She has also appeared in Glamour and Vanity Fair. Thanks to her About page on the official IMG Models website we can get some facts about the latest Gummer.
Her favorite restaurant in the world is the test kitchen in Cape Town, South Africa. “They have a few different tasting menus, each consisting of many small courses,” she says, “Chef Luke Dale-Roberts creates innovative, inspired and creative dishes that are incredibly good”.
Her best song is Buckets of Rain by Bob Dylan, and she also loves “this birthday song”.
About the most beautiful trip she ever took, she said: “Highway 1 on the West Coast from Los Angeles to Big Sur, California. There is nothing better than driving on this winding road on the edge of cliffs where pines and mountains meet the Pacific Ocean. It’s unreal.”
