To me (us, actually), this lady sports a rare beauty. She looks like a high borne from the medieval times… A really fair lady whose hand is the reason why knights and lords joust and fight. Yup, royalty. Oh, and Frida Aasen’s hotness here can make you go head-on with the likes of Smaug. That’s double fantasy, you horny geeks. You can fantasize about her hotness in your geeky medieval adventure fantasy. Ha! It’s like hitting a two-headed dragon with one stone!

Frida is a Norwegian fashion model who is famous for her modeling work for Victoria’s Secret and Saks Fifth Avenue. She is also notable for her Marie Claire, Vogue, and Elle photo shoots. Frida has appeared in advertisements and catalogs for brands such as Tory Burch, H&M, Nasty Gal, and Dsquared². She has also been featured on the covers of fashion magazines like Dazed and Confused and Madame Figaro, as well as editorials for Vogue Germany, Numero, V, Love, Flaire, 10 Magazine, Russh, CR Fashion Book, and exit.
Aside from prints and adverts, this uber gorgeous lady has also walked the runways for brands and designers like Prada, Loewe, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Blumarine, Just Cavalli, Salvatore Ferragamo, DKNY, Derek Lam, Carolina Herrera, Anna Sui, Cushnie et Ochs, Tory Burch, Derek Lam, and Jeremy Scott.
Frida Aasen was born on December 5, 1994, in the city of Kristiansand in southern Norway. This is also where she grew up.
Frida was discovered by Donna Ioanna, a model agent, while she was shopping in a mall in her hometown of Kristiansand. Donna approached the then 14-year-old Frida with a startling proposal to work as a model. Luckily for us (and for the rest of the world), Frida accepted the proposition and she was signed right away by the modeling agency Women Management.
Frida (at only 16) started her career in 2011 with a photo shoot for Flair and Marie Claire in Italy. She then traveled to New York to work on an ad campaign for Alberta Ferretti. In September of the same year, her big break came with her debut for the Prada spring fashion show in Milan… And that modeling stint helped her land the Louis Vuitton and Loewe spring shows in Paris.
In 2012, Frida was featured on the very first issue of Carine Roitfeld’s magazine, CR Fashion book. She was also photographed by Sean and Sen for an editorial in Numero magazine. Also in the same year, Frida was photographed for the covers on Dazed and Confused. She also appeared in the spring issue of Love magazine with famed photographer Solve Sundsbo doing her shoot.
Frida’s modeling came to a hiatus as she wanted to complete her schooling. Though (temporary) out of the industry, she still was in the spotlight as (in 2013) she was referred to as a ‘face to watch’ by Vogue, alongside Martha Hunt and Kelly Gale. After completing her education, she returned to the modeling circuit and was featured in campaign ads for big and established brands.
