Elsa Hosk is one of the newest of Victoria’s Secret angels, but if you are intent on catching up with this Swedish delight, you might have a better chance of reaching her on the sites of one of the numerous contracts she has to work, including Dior, Solce & Gabbana, Free People, Ungaro, H&M, Lilly Pulitzer, Guess and many more.

“Discovered” in 2001 after her father sent photos from her portfolio to various modeling agencies in Sweden, Hosk quickly attracted the eye of several prominent designers.  Unfortunately, besides a desire to continue her education in high school, Hosk wanted to pursue a career with the Swedish women’s basketball league, but after she determined that play was not on a par with the WNBA and, as a result, did not attract the same level of money, she opted for modeling.  Fortunately, the two professions have much in common, including demanding schedules, which kept her in shape for both.  After spending two years playing professional basketball, Hosk moved to New York City to work with photographer Ellen von Unwerth on campaigns for Guess.  This elevated her career to Victoria’s Secret, which chose her for their brand in 2011.  The rest, as they say, is history.
