biography

Birth Date: April 14, 1993
Nationality: Denmark
Josephine Skriver was born on April 14, 1993 in Copenhagen, Denmark. As a teenager, she visited NYC and was approached about her modeling potential. The encounter led her to considering the option, and she eventually pursued the career in Denmark before entering the international market.

In February 2011, Josephine debuted at New York Fashion Week, walking for designers like Calvin Klein and Rag & Bone. She moved on to Milan and Paris, where she walked for Balenciaga, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, and Yves Saint Laurent. She was the show closer that season for Prada in Milan.

Since her successful career launch, Josephine has modeled in campaigns for the likes of Armani, Balmain, Bulgari, Gucci, Max Mara, Michael Kors, Tom Ford and more. Select top photographers who have collaborated with her are Steven Meisel, Patrick Demarchelier, and Mikael Jansson, while her editorial accolades include American Vogue, Vogue Italia, Vogue Germany, V, Dazed, W, Interview, and many more. In 2013, she walked her first Victoria’s Secret fashion show, and she has participated in both of the two additional years since. In 2016, she was appointed an official “Angel” by Victoria’s Secret. In 2018, she was announced as one of the faces of Maybelline New York.

Alongside her career, Josephine is notable for being an advocate for global LGBTQ rights. Having been raised by a lesbian mother and a gay father, she is outspoken about her upbringing and seeks to dissolve negative impressions of LGBTQ families all over the world. Since going public with her unique circumstances, she has been involved with organizations like Family Equality Council and COLAGE, while her story has been documented by Vogue, Huffington Post, i-D, Australia Today, and additional media outlets. She hopes to inspire children and all future generations of LGBTQ families via her own journey.
