Another great Frida Comes Out of Sweden
Frida Gustavsson (born 6 June 1993) is a Swedish model who has become the face of many of the world's top brands. Along with Frida (Anni-Frid) Lyngstad of rock group Abba, she is the second one-name "Frida" celebrity to come out of that hotbed of beautiful women, Sweden.
From Sundbyberg, Sweden, Frida began modelling at age 15 before graduating from her local high school. She is quite tall at 6' 1" (1.85 m), which naturally made people wonder if she would make a good model - and, of course, she has.
By 2010, she had conquered the fashion world, and was among the most requested models in the world within a couple of years. She has been on numerous fashion magazine covers, including Elle, Vogue (many editions), and W. Frida has been the star of many advertising campaigns for the likes of Marc Jacobs and Prada.
A true catwalk model, Frida has walked for all of the top fashion names, including Versace, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Chanel. She recently became the face of Maybelline, and appeared in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 2012. You don't get a resume better than that as an up-and-coming young fashion model.
Clearly, Frida is an iconic model on the rise. We cover a lot of top fashion models on these pages, but they aren't usually still on the quick rise to stardom that is so exciting and exhilarating to watch. With her natural good looks and ability to project innocence and purity, Frida should become a household name before she is through like Elle or Christie or Tyra.
Frida is a rocket that has just left the launch pad, and clearly she has many, many adventures ahead of her. No doubt, like so many models before her, she will develop her own line of clothing at some point and model it herself, with her usual style and élan. It is exciting the way she electrifies the modelling world, a classic, long-legged blonde vision.
In terms of eventual promise, youthful accomplishments and dominating style, Frida has a lot in common with Hungarian stunner Barbara Palvin. The sky is the limit for those as beautiful as Palvin and Frida Gustavsson.
Frida has done a little acting. For instance, she portrayed Jenna Svensson in two episodes of Swedish television mini-series "Arne Dahl: Efterskalv" (2015) and in television series "När karusellerna sover" (1998).
Frida has almost 200,000 followers on her Instagram page.

On June 2, 2015, Frida married photographer Hjalmar Rechlin in Sweden.
Frida has walked the runways for Prada, Mulberry, Chanel, Christian Dior, Valentino and many other top brands.
One of my favorite places is India. I particularly love Agonda Beach in the south of Goa. There's a lot of great yoga retreats there. Jodphur and Rajasthan are also amazing.
Modelling isn't easy - it's long hours and hard work. Surround yourself with the right people and don't get swept up.

I'm obsessed with vinyasa flow yoga and pilates. And since I live in Sweden and we have good seafood I tend to cook a lot of fish, preferably with oven-roasted veggies and a cauliflower mash.
I try to be as organic and natural as possible when it comes to makeup, so I always carry around coconut oil for removing and jojoba or Argan oil as a moisturiser.
Fragrance is, to me, something very personal; because it is something you wear every day, it should represent you and be an extension of your style.
I'm honored and thrilled to represent such an iconic brand and to be a part of the Maybelline New York family.
I'm a very creative person and I like to do different things.
To me, beauty is an emotion, and it's about feeling good about yourself. It's a way of awakening all senses and it's something that feels good.
