We hear music. Sweet, sweet music. Smells so good. Just like Maybelline or Nina Ricci.

Could someone with the perfect voice sing what we are thinking?

Super Star Becky G, take it away.

“When I wake up
You’re the first thing that comes to mind
Wanna see you like all the time
Yeah we be loving so hard”

There are a number of guys and girls in the world when they wake up, the Swedish beauty Frida Gustavsson comes to their mind. That makes you want to wake up from even the most darling dream.

There certainly seems to be a long line of them and during the brand New Year it is time to celebrate another gorgeous Swedish model.

Ms. Gustavsson began modeling locally in 2008 and in the same year she moved to Japan to pursue modeling.

Sounds adventurous. She sounds like a risk taker. What an experience. We’ve been to Japan twice and loved it.

Experiencing the flavor of the travel taste bud, Frida also traveled to France.

She opened the Valentino Haute Couture fall 2013 show in Paris.

Drum roll please.

Since then, she has walked shows for Shiatzy Chen, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Lanvin, Carolina Herrera, Fendi, Christian Dior, Jil Sander, Alexander McQueen, Anna Sui, Marc Jacobs, , Calvin Klein, Oscar de la Renta, Emilio Pucci, Celine, Hermès, Jean Paul Gaultier, Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent, Ralph Lauren, Blumarine, and Versace.

She also walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2012.

Now that was the runway, what about magazines?

Our sensational Swedish darling has been in the magazines Elle, W, Numéro, American, Italian, French, British, German and Japanese Vogue, L’Officiel, Crash, and others. In March 2010, she appeared on the cover of the German Vogue. She has appeared in advertising campaigns for Marc Jacobs, Jill Stuart, Anna Sui, H&M, Max Mara, Tiger of Sweden and Prada.

One more. Frida won Elle Sweden’s Model of the Year award in 2011.

She appears in advertisements for Nina Ricci. That’s quite a marketing prize.

Nina Ricci is a fashion house founded by Maria “Nina” Ricci and her son Robert in Paris in 1932, and owned by the Spanish beauty and fashion group Puig since 1998. Nina Ricci’s most famous perfume, L’Air du Temps, created in France in 1948, means “Air of Time”, capturing the passion and elegance of an emerging generation.

How do you say Sweetly Swedish in French?

That is an incredible resume from someone so young. The tender age of 26 she is. She is also an actress, known for Dröm (2019), Swoon (2019) and Arne Dahl: Efterskalv (2015).

The legendary fashion Vogue praises, “Opening on Valentine’s Day in Sweden is a new film, Eld & Lågor (Swoon), that will have resonance for fashion folk even beyond the title. For starters, the lead is played by Frida Gustavsson, who, in her life as a top model, racked up miles gracing catwalks in between creating unforgettable images for Vogue. A take on real-life events, Swoon is a Romeo and Juliet story peppered with subplots and set during World War II. Gustavsson plays Ninni Nilsson, the daughter of amusement park owners, and a creative, unstable young woman, “who struggles to find her place in the world,” and falls for the son of her parents’ rival, the playboy John Lindgren (Albin Grenholm).”

Frida? You go girl. Is there more on Frida’s blonde plate made of gold and platinum.

Yes. Of course.

What do models model best? Maybe it’s a tie. Makeup and clothing.

Frida has partnered with one of the global leaders in alluring makeup.

Ms. Gustavsson is also the new face of Maybelline, she initially worked for them in ads and commercials in the late 2013. She was the fourth most requested model of the spring 2010 season.

You see what we mean? When so many dreamers around the world wake up, Frida is the first girl that comes to mind.

We be lovin’ so hard.

About that 2013 Maybelline connection. Smile. We wish we were there when the announcement was made.
