My Favorite Swedish Model

Elsa Hosk in Free People's Book

Elsa Hosk might be my favorite Swedish model but there are several stars from my home coutry who might be more "successful" models like Frida Gustavsson, Sigrid Agren and Sara Blomqvist. The export of Swedish models to all the main fashion weeks are becoming a trend. Maybe because our countrymen and women seem to produce such beautiful creatures with pure faces and long-legged, thus perfect for the modeling profession. Elsa is a little bit shorter than her fellow colleagues and therefore gets more commercial gigs while not often seen in high-fashion ads or walking down the catwalk for the elite fashion houses. You might have seen her this year at the runway only at London fashion week; one of few shows she did was Sass & Bide (S/S 2012). She's also a Victoria Secret model and lately she's been featured a lot on their website. The most recent work she's done is appearing in the brand Free People's book. But I think she might be most famous for her Guess by Marciano ads which have been plastered all over the world at large billboards.
