as promised, this month's model spotlight features swedish model, frida gustavsson. hailing from stockholm, this seventeen year-old beauty has been tearing up the runways and gracing the glossies since she signed with img in 2008. her first trip down the catwalk, she opened the valentino couture fall 2010 show. not bad for a newcomer! since then, she has walked for carolina herrera, calvin klein, marc jacobs, oscar de la renta, ralph lauren, valentino, elie saab, dior, and chanel, to name a few. she has appeared in numerous editorials for the likes of vogue, and w and in august this year, she became the face of marc jacobs.
frida is an established force on the runway and her ability to do both commercial (h&m magazine winter 2010) and editorial work means she has staying power.
