"Top Ten of Rising Stars"
Elite model Sigrid Agren is the fruit of an exotic if unexpected cocktail: a French mother, a Swedish father, a childhood on the Caribbean island of Martinique and holidays in a small Swedish village where outdoorsy pastimes like swimming, fishing, bike rides and berry-picking were the order of the day.
Born in 1991, Sigrid was spotted at an Elite casting in Martinique at the age of 14. In the same year she walked the runway at the Elite Model Look World Final in Marrakech. A keen student with an interest in mathematics, science and ballet Sigrid completed her high-school studies, taking time off from the catwalks for exams, and graduating with Honours!
Sigrid definitively launched her modelling career in earnest in 2008, whereupon she was quickly listed in ‘Top Ten of Rising Stars’ by the prestigious site Style.com. Among her numerous achievements, Sigrid has appeared in editorial for magazines such as Vogue, Elle, W, Numero, Harper’s Bazaar and i-D Magazine. She also landed a number of prestigious contracts with the most important luxury brands including Chanel and replaced the über-super-model Kate Moss as the face of Stella McCartney.
Her advice to aspiring Elite Models? “Stay yourself.”
Highly valued for her timeless and angelic beauty, she has worked with many of fashion’s photography greats including: Steven Meisel, Peter Lindbergh, Mario Testino, Mert & Marcus and Terry Richardson.
