Life and career[edit]

Ellingson grew up in Moreno Valley, California, where she graduated from Canyon Springs High School and won three trophies at the USA National Championships for her high school dance team.[3][4] Prior to being discovered on the street, she went to college at the UC San Diego to study biology. After a test shoot, she was sent to Paris by her model agency, where she met John Galliano who put her on the map.[5]

Ellingson first walked the runway in the Spring/Summer 2005 ready-to-wear shows. She has walked in numerous shows including Shiatzy Chen, Blumarine, Chanel, Christian Dior, John Galliano, Gucci, Valentino, Lacoste, Victorias Secret, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Zac Posen, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Giorgio Armani.[1][6] Her campaigns include Moschino, DKNY, MAC, Dolce and Gabbana, Charles David, H&M, and Tommy Hilfiger.[6][7] She has graced the covers of Vogue, Marie Claire, Elle, D Magazine, GQ and L'Officiel internationally and has appeared in the pages of Allure, Flair, V, and i-D as well.[6][7]

She has been walking for Victoria's Secret for 5 straight years.[6] Ellingson and Emanuela de Paula were chosen to be spokeswomen for "Body by Victoria" by Victoria's Secret alongside Alessandra Ambrosio and Marisa Miller; she was also a featured model in the 2010 Victoria's Secret "SWIM" catalog.[8] She is currently listed as one of the brand's 12 "supermodels" and was one of the featured models during the 2009 fashion show.[9] In 2011, she became one of the brand's signature Angels, as well as the face of its perfume line VS Attractions and its new bra, Gorgeous.[10]

As of 2011, she is one of the faces of Clarins. In 2012, Ellingson was featured in Jacques Olivar's Forever Young photobook.

In November 2013, after six years of dating, Ellingson became engaged to her long-term boyfriend Sean Clayton, a medical equipment salesman and former college football player.[11] They were married on July 12, 2014, in Bluffton, South Carolina.[12]
