Josephine Skriver-Karlsen (born 14 April 1993) is a Danish fashion model. She is a Victoria’s Secret Angel and since her modeling debut in 2011, she has walked in over 300 fashion shows, modeled for some of the world’s biggest fashion brands and been on the cover of and featured in magazines such as Vanity Fair, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.
Skriver was born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark. Her mother is an IT analyst and her father is a marine biologist. Her parents are both gay and Skriver and her younger brother, Oliver, were conceived through IVF.
At the age of 15, Skriver was discovered and approached about her modeling potential while on a trip to New York with her soccer team. Shortly thereafter, she was signed by Unique Models, an international modeling agency based in Copenhagen. She was consequently approached by other agencies outside of Denmark, but decided to wait to stay in school. After finishing school, she began pursuing a modeling career in 2011.
