Who’s That Girl: Victoria’s Secret’s Elsa Hosk
This week Swedish model Elsa Hosk was announced as the latest wearer of the coveted $1 million ‘Fantasy Bra’ which is set to go on show at the 2018 Victoria’s Secret fashion show. But who is Elsa Hosk and how did she go from playing professional basketball in Sweden to become one of Victoria Secret’s hottest angels?
The ‘2018 Dream Angels Fantasy Bra’ has been unveiled. Boasting a mere 2,100 Atelier Swarovski diamonds – 71 carats – the bra is set in a sterling silver casing and took four craftsman 930 hours to construct. Hosk will succeed Lais Ribeiro as the wearer next month.
Believe it or not, despite modelling from an early age, Hosk had played professional basketball in Sweden before going fulltime. It was probably the right choice too – since going pro she’s worked for brands including Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, H&M, Anna Sui, Pulitzer and Guess.
