Elsa Hosk is a woman known for many things – she was a Victoria’s Secret Angel from 2011 to 2016, she has modeled for a variety of brands from Dior to H&M, and she is a devoted mother. This 35-year-old model has built a recognizable name surrounding her brand collaborations that feature her innate sense of style.

Hosk is also the founder and creative director of HELSA Studios, a fashion-forward brand that focuses on neutral pieces for everyday wear, both casual and formal. HELSA celebrates the uniqueness of the female spirit without sacrificing comfort and style. Her pieces are sold online at many popular retailers (you can grab her latest drop at Revolve!). 

She has graced the runway in eye-catching couture dresses, like this statement dress from Viktor & Rolf. 

And she has walked on a variety of worldwide carpets, such as the Oscars and Cannes. 

This incredible woman was also the 2024 Daily Front Row Fashion Entrepreneur of the Year award winner, which was given in recognition of two successful years in her HELSA partnership with Revolve.

Her Beauty Routine 

Aside from her most prominent Swedish features, her striking blue eyes and shiny blonde hair, Elsa Hosk maintains her natural aesthetic with simple face makeup and a neutral lip. Her eye makeup looks are especially iconic and, lucky for you, fairly easy to recreate with the right products and technique. 

Hosk’s stunning skin is accomplished through organic, gentle products that protect and reinforce her skin’s natural barrier. If your tendency is to pile on the harsh products to “solve” your skincare issues, take a hint from the VS Angel and opt for clean, gentle products instead. Hosk also notes that skincare starts with diet, and the food you consume will have a direct relation to the health and quality of your skin. In an interview with Glamour, she says, “That’s why I try to focus on treating it from the inside, with the foods I eat and how I manage stress, more than anything else.” Here are some of her favorites!
