Elle Key is a glamour model from Sweden, living in Southern California. She started her career as a runway model for L’Oreal Paris and later in Sweden while getting her degree in Economics, Elle pursued her dream and started to do glamour modeling. Recently, Elle moved to California to continue her postgraduate business education and was discovered for her bodily beauty enhancements that she loves to show in front of the camera.

Tell us a bit about yourself? I was born and raised in Sweden. I love everything beautiful in life, especially beautification. I was dreaming of being a cover girl since I was little. One of my passions is to improve myself to look like my own ideal, perfect woman. Since I moved to America my life has changed so much, but I went back to my roots with one thing here, I started to ride horses again!

What was your initial reaction when you were chosen to shoot for FHM? I was so excited, so happy. When I was little I had so many dreams that are coming true. I’m opening my eyes every morning thinking how blessed I am. This shoot is one of my dreams come true.

How do you prepare for a shoot? Proper planning and organization. I am blessed to have a nutritionist and private trainer. I take care of my body in my home spa. Hot, saunas and long showers make my body glow!

Describe your perfect man… The perfect man? Oh, he is an unstoppable, indestructible bull when he’s working and a majestic, statuesque stallion at night. The perfect man has multiple sides, I know only one man like that. I am lucky to be his.

What is your ideal date? Of course, I love romance, roses and white table dinners, but my ideal date is unplanned. I believe the best things in life happens when we least plan them, just like love. So, I guess the best way for an ideal date is to always be prepared for the first unexpected… Also, any date gets better with a big bouquet of flowers!

What do you do for fun? Riding horses. I grew up riding and I competed in hunter jumping. Now I live around horse ranches. I dream about galloping wild and free in the forrest. I love animals, and horses make me so happy!

If you weren’t a model, what would you be? I would have my own beauty clinic or my own lingerie and lounge apparel brand. I have my business education and I’m so passionate about beautification. Being a model for lingerie made me very interested in lingerie and I’m thinking of having my own lingerie brand, what do you think about that?

What would you say is the most difficult part about being a model? I think it’s hard not to be able to enjoy all moments fully. Like, I want to drink champagne and celebrate life every day, but most days I can only drink water. Modeling is motivating for me so I don’t think it’s difficult in other ways but it helps me to get closer to my goals with my look.

What are you most looking forward to doing this year? Get my publications. Decorate my home. Be a good girl and work hard so I can plan more beauty procedures. And travel somewhere exotic to take hot pictures on the beach!

Lastly, what is your life motto or a quote that means a lot to you? “The purpose of our lives is to be happy”. Everyone is ultimately responsible for their happiness. I moved to the other side of the world because I was not happy where I was. Living to create your own happiness doesn’t mean you don’t care about others. Others happiness can be your happiness, too!
