sandrah-hellberg-frontSwedish model Sandrah Hellberg has elevated her profile with a stunning photo shoot in DV Mode magazine. She poses on a shimmering white beach in swimwear, signaling the start of the summer fashion season.

The photo shoot is a bit of a departure for her. The 24-year-old Stockholm native is largely known as an accessories model for Guess.

But she’s got the goods to go beyond baubles and bangles. Photographer Fredrik Wannerstedt captures Hellberg in swimsuits and other ensembles for the fashion title, which tips toward a more youthful audience than its parent publication Damernas Värld.

Hellberg began modeling when she was 17 after being discovered in a shopping mall. Her first big job was with Abercrombie & Fitch and she became a muse for fashion photographer Bruce Weber.

Sandrah Hellberg’s Ode to Summer

Hellberg is not runway tall at 5’8,” but she’s known for her stunning beauty, classic lines and raven-colored hair. These days, she is based out of Los Angeles, which she calls her second home.

Her big break came through her work with Guess, which has used her extensively in print campaigns. She says the relationship has been more than a job. It’s become a lifestyle for her.

“On every shoot there’s something new happening. I’m always learning about myself and meeting people,” she says in a rare interview. “I’ve learned a lot about being a strong, independent woman.”

In her DV Mode shoot, Hellberg was styled by Lisa Pettersson, with hair and makeup by Sandra Öjeland. Check out her latest photos and a behind-the-scenes interview from a Guess shoot.
