Angela Lindvall’s ascent into the upper strata of modeling has come with a healthy dose of mental and physical wellness. When’s she’s not assuming a character on-and-off the runways of fashion’s most celebrated houses, Angela is practicing yoga, tending to the land of her Los Angeles home with her two sons and promoting the thriving concept of self-care.
Oklahoma-born and Missouri-raised, Angela was discovered by an IMG scout at the age of 15 while walking in a Kansas City fashion show. She immediately signed with IMG New York, but soon took a hiatus from modeling before returning at age 17.
Angela quickly became one of the most sought-after models in the industry. She’s known for her versatile look that makes her a seamless fit through and through. She’s appeared on national and international editions of Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, W, Marie Claire and more and has starred in almost every leading fashion brand’s advertising campaigns from Prada to Calvin Klein. Angela was the face of Cover Girl from 2000 to 2003 and regularly walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show between 2000 and 2008.
While Angela made headway as a multi-hyphenate model (she starred in the 2002 film, CQ, directed by Roman Coppola), she has dedicated much of her off-duty time to ecological and wellness projects. Angela hosted the first major “green fashion show" during New York Fashion Week in 2007, Be Eco Chic. She is also a board member of the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Clean by Design, an initiative to green the textile industry in China.
Angela has also expanded her green fashion initiatives into brand development that joins the ever-growing initiatives to make fashion socially and ecologically responsible. From 2010-2011, Angela became the face of luxury jewelry brand, John Hardy, which later grew into the eco-responsible collection, Angela by John Hardy. That same year, Angela became the spokeswoman for the socially responsible fragrance, Pure DKNY.
Angela is currently working on her first book, a guide to wellness in the modern world, and spends time at her home-turned-eco-sanctuary where she hosts health and wellness gatherings.
