She is a perennial at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows, appearing in 2011-2017 as of this writing. Elsa got a lot of compliments from viewers of the 2017 show, who thought she had the "sparkliest" outfit. And, they were absolutely correct.

Within a year of the agencies seeing the photos, Elsa was appearing in ads. Yes, they do start them out young in Europe.

The critical moment in Elsa Hosk's career was when she won Sweden’s Next Top Model in 2012 at the age of 23.

Splitting her time between school and modeling, Elsa enjoyed playing basketball when she wasn't walking the runways.

Elsa joined a women's league in Sweden after graduation and played for about two years. Elsa stresses that this was nothing comparable to the WNBA, let alone the NBA. It was a girl's league with no pretensions. However, it wasn't just a hobby, Elsa says that there were eight practices a week.

Eventually, she decided to move to New York to pursue some of the offers to model that she was receiving. This decision led to a brilliant career.

Elsa replaced Lindsay Ellingson as one of the official 8 Angels (the others at the time were Karlie Kloss, Behati Prinsloo, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, and Lily Aldridge). Elsa was one of ten new Angels at the time, as Victoria's Secret radically revamped its lineup.

People realized a switch had been made in the Victoria's Secret Angels lineup by closely examining the placement of the models in various Victoria's Secret promotional photographs. Here, Elsa is in the front row, and Lindsay Ellingson is in the second. Keeping up with Victoria's Secret developments can be as difficult as watching the Kremlin.

Naima Turner: Elsa, when you learned that you were going to become a new face among the Victoria’s Secret Angels – did you flip out?  What was the first thought of excitement that went through your head?

Elsa Hosk: I totally flipped out!! I was so excited, I got the phone call walking around with some friends on the street and I basically dropped my phone screaming! My first thought was feeling proud, and just pure happiness that I had made it into the show that I’d been dreaming of walking in since I started modeling.

I used to hate my butt — like, hate it. In school I used to cover it up. I felt like it was too big like I felt like I needed to wear a sweater over it. It was awful.

Elsa, like all the Angels, makes special preparations in her daily workout routine for the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows:
When I reach the two-week mark, I’ll add some extra stuff. I’ll go for a run in the morning, too, and double-up the workouts. I try to listen to my body.
Her body is probably trying to say, "Elsa darling, you look fabulous already, no need to run anymore."
