Nina Agdal is a Danish model whose striking presence and unique style have earned her a prestigious position in the world of international fashion. This highly sought-after model has distinguished herself through her work with some of the industry’s biggest brands, her numerous magazine cover appearances, and her collaborations with influential figures across different domains.
Agdal’s illustrious career started at an early age when she signed with Elite Models Copenhagen. This initial step paved the way for her to become a recognized face within the industry. Her work extended across a variety of mediums, from print advertising to runway shows, lending her elegance and grace to brands like Billabong, Victoria’s Secret, and Adore Me. However, her breakout moment arrived when she featured in the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, a milestone that rapidly propelled her to international fame. Following this, she graced the covers of prestigious publications like Vogue Mexico, Elle, and Cosmopolitan UK.
Agdal’s collaborations with fellow celebrities have been a significant facet of her career, highlighting her ability to work in diverse settings and contexts. Renowned photographer Terry Richardson, whose vibrant and edgy work has revolutionized fashion photography, captured Agdal in several photoshoots, including one for the glossy pages of Harper’s Bazaar. She also shared screen time with popular comedian Adam Devine in a humorous 2017 Super Bowl commercial for Buick. Agdal’s modeling engagements have led to interactions with a variety of influential figures, such as the legendary fashion designer Michael Kors, influential DJ Steve Aoki, and actor and producer Leonardo DiCaprio, with whom she was in a relationship for a period of time.
In terms of recognition, Agdal has had her fair share of noteworthy moments. She was honored with the title of “Rookie of the Year” following her debut in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2012, a significant acknowledgment in the modeling world. In 2014, she made the headlines again when she appeared on the 50th-anniversary cover of the Swimsuit Issue alongside Chrissy Teigen and Lily Aldridge. This honor was particularly significant as it is rare for a model to feature on the cover within just two years of her debut.
