Inga Eiriksdottir’s smoldering eyes are just one of the Swedish-born beauty’s captivating qualities. Scouted in Iceland at the age of 14, Inga convinced her parents to let her jet set to London at 15 years old and begin her modeling career. Inga catapulted to the international scene, seizing the cover of both Australian Vogue and German Elle, and has been featured in Vanity Fair, W Magazine, Vogue Russia, and Harper’s Bazaar. She has been in campaigns for Ralph Lauren, Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, Catherines, Kohl’s, Liz Claiborne, Versus, Lilyette, Max Mara, La Redoute, JD Williams, Evans, and Elina Mirò, and has been the face of Clarins cosmetics.
A market favorite, Inga has worked with some of the industry’s most respected photographers, including Peter Lindberg, Steven Meisel, Paolo Roversi, Juergen Teller and Bruce Weber in prestigious editorials, catalogues, on television and the catwalk, and more. Fluent in Swedish, Icelandic, English and proficient in German and French, Inga studied acting for 3 years, has performed in numerous TV commercials, music videos, several short films and one feature-length film that was shot and distributed in Iceland. As a citizen of the world, Inga has lived and worked in London, Paris, Milan and her current home, New York City.
A firm believer that beauty should be represented by true diversity – via body size, skin color, age, and the like – Inga has taken the message of self-acceptance to heart, and she champions for other women to love themselves through fitness and health. As an active athlete, tennis player, and yogini, Inga especially relates to the plight of young girls, encouraging them to be strong, beautiful leaders.
Inga is a semi professional photographer and curator and has produced three award winning photography shows at New York City’s Milk Gallery and the United Nations. She is also a skilled accordion player and is igniting change every day of her life.
