Biography

Freja Beha Erichsen has brought her effortless cool-girl attitude and artfully shaggy hair to the runways and campaigns of fashion’s most important houses. This season Louis Vuitton , Inez and Vinoodh for Frame, Zadig & Voltaire and Coach all cast the model in campaigns. In 2013 the model landed a worldwide Maybelline beauty contract, recognising her global desirability and pinnacle-tier status.

The model broke onto the scene in 2008, by gracing two Vogue covers, Nippon and Portugal, and a Russian Harper’s Bazaar. The following year, the model landed another two Vogue covers, but it wasn’t until 2010, when she landed two French Vogue covers, a British Vogue cover and an Italian Vogue cover, along with campaigns for Chanel, Valentino, Balenciaga and Tom Ford that the full scale of the models popularity within the industry was apparent.

Erichsen is one of the few models in the industry that may lay claim to an entire year, 2011 was indisputably the shaggy-haired model’s year. The Denmark native made waves across the industry for her Chanel and Valentino campaigns landed four major Vogue covers and had runway moment after runway moment during the season. Erichsen added H&M, Isabel Marant , Harry Winston, Karl Lagerfeld and Louis Vuitton to her campaign roster during the year, in addition to being cast once again for Chanel and Valentino. Erichsen also became the face of the Roman house’s new fragrance Valentina.

In addition, over 2012 and 2013 Erichsen appeared in campaigns for Zara, Chloe, Hugo Boss , Saint Laurent , Prada and Bottega Veneta. She is represented globally by IMG and Unique Denmark.
