Elsa Hosk for PORTER Edit
For the cover, the edition of PORTER Edit chose the model and the angel Victoria’s Secret Elsa Hosk. The location of the shooting of the spring issue of the edition PORTER Edit chose the morning sun filled with New York. To create the image of a true inhabitant of the Big Apple invited the Swedish model and the “angel” Victoria’s Secret to Elsa Hosk. For the cover, the stylists picked up Elsa’s things from Maje, Altuzarra and Isabel Marant. On the other photos the girl poses in images in the style of the 1970s, trying on clothes from Loewe, Chloe and Saint Laurent.
In an interview with Elsa, Hosk told about her work with a model, her attitude to sexuality and provocative filming.
“Sometimes I see myself in photos, and the image is so different from who I really am. People always want to see me in things that are very sexy and very stylized “
“In my head, I’m not that sexy. I’m pretty stupid and completely normal. ” If you see in the picture a sexy Elsa, this is the character that I play on the camera “
“I remember how the photo was published, where I posed without linen and I had so many messages from people who said: what did you do? Are you sure this is the right decision? And I thought: yes, I do not care about Vel. This is my body, this is my choice. “
And if there is trolling – some users on social networks attacked Hoska for being too skinny – this is for the other Elsa to worry. “I try not to read them, but it looks like it’s not about me,” she smiles. “This is about this other person.” Her family is also convenient, that her vivid pictures are visible to millions of strangers? “They do not even say anything, so I do not know,” she grins. “My mom sometimes comments on photos and tells me:” This is a beautiful dress, “but I did not really talk to them about what they think about nudity.”
