About Kelly Gale
Kelly Gale, a model and advocate for equal rights, blossomed early in her career.
Discovered at the age of 12, Kelly Gale began her modeling career at 13. After being approached by a modeling agent in a café in Gothenburg, she began her career and quickly got jobs modeling for H&M. Her big start came in 2012, when she was invited to walk in Chanel’s pre-fall fashion show. “It was so cool, felt very surreal,” Gale told Women’s Wear Daily.
Gale grew up in Gothenburg, Sweden, but due to her father’s jobs abroad, she lived in Ghana for four years and Australia for one. Gale grew up heavily influenced by the Swedish Culture, although her father was Australian and her mother, Indian.
Despite the rough patches of her early years, in 2013 one of her dreams came true and she was chosen for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. And she was chosen again the following year. Gale has been in numerous advertisements and catalogs such as H&M, Chanel, Tommy Hilfiger, and Ralph Lauren. She has also appeared in many fashion magazines like Teen Vogue, Vogue Italia, Elle, Vogue India and Lucky.
Although Gale has received a lot of attention for her killer looks, she is a smart woman. She is fluent in two languages and is passionate about issues surrounding gender equality, a mindset she adapted from the culture she grew up around. “Women in Sweden are treated with a revolutionary level of respect that is unsurpassed in history” she tells Playboy. “Still the biggest obstacle is appreciating—and incorporating—each gender’s uniqueness into society.”
Gale loves modeling but she is also a foodie with a passion to cook. She tells Playboy that in the future she would like to attend culinary school and eventually write a cookbook and perhaps open a café.
