Angela Lindvall: Model Profile

It’s not very often that you find a model that is able to stick around in the business for more than 15 years.

Angela Lindvall is one of these rare beauties, a versatile mix of commercial and high fashion potential that never seems to fade.

With her long limbs, athletic figure, sparkling blue eyes, and shaggy blonde hair, she conjures up images of a young Cheryl Teigs, as well as the reigning period of the 90’s supermodel.

Though she looks like a California surfer girl, this All-American stunner was actually born and raised in Oklahoma by two medical parents.

As a young girl, she had no aspirations to become a model, even though her younger sister, now deceased, did.

With the help of a quick growth spurt and the encouragement of her friends, Angela decided to give modeling a try. She went on to be discovered at the age of 14 at a local fashion show, and signed with IMG, one of the world’s largest and top agencies, soon after.

Angela quickly went on to establish herself as a cover girl bombshell, lending her doe-eyed face to leading magazines such as ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Numero, Vogue, and W.  

She’s walked nearly every big time runway show known to mankind, as well as being a top choice for the always exciting Victoria’s Secret shows. Angelina is also the queen of the campaigns, appearing in ads for brands such as Fendi, Calvin Klein, Christian Dior, Prada, Gucci, Jil Sander, Jimmy Choo, Chanel, Versus, CoverGirl, H&M, and Zara, as well as the new DKNY Pure fragrance campaign.

Angela is just one of those girls who appeals to all kinds of clients and consumers, both high fashion and high street.

With just a crack of a smile, she’s the girl next door, and with a jut of her hip she’s a Sports Illustrated star. With a narrowing of her eyes, she transforms into a sexy sidekick. From youthful and fresh to mysterious and sleek, Angela’s got all characters covered. Because of this, she is the epitome of supermodel status, and it is the reason why she is still working today, like she did when she was 17.

 Angela is also a devoted environmentalist and vegetarian, using her fame and industry connections to make positive changes for the planet.

She founded the College Foundation to promote environmental and sustainability issues amongst young people. Her sharp sense of style has also brought her to collaborate with brands like Edun, and the jewelry line John Hardy, to help design special pieces with eco-friendly values in mind. The proceeds of her designs are to be donated to environmentally charged charities that Angela fully supports.

Angela is a beautiful woman, inside and out. She is able to juggle all the very different aspects of her life as a mother, environmentalist, and model, keeping it all in balance. She is also a sister, although her younger sister, (also a model and environmentalist) died in a bike riding accident a few years ago. Even though her sister is no longer here, Angela keeps her legacy alive through her own work.

She is a model with a heart and an open mind, and this is what makes her an icon. Though she’s at the peak of her career, we can be sure there will be a lot more to come from the amazing Angela Lindvall.
