Tollerød started school at age 7. She was always active outside of school and enjoyed horseback riding, skiing (cross country), European handball, aerobics, and singing. She has one younger sister named Susanne.
She was discovered by scout Donna Ioanna while Christmas shopping at H&M in Sørlandssenteret shopping mall. Tollerød went to Milan, Italy in September 2006 to dabble in modeling for a summer. She soon returned home to earn her high school diploma. Immediately upon graduating, she signed with Trump Models and was asked to shoot for Vogue Italia with Steven Klein. She moved to New York City in April 2007 to pursue full-time modeling and, within that first year, she was featured in a DKNY campaign, opened and closed the spring D&G shows, was on the cover of 10, and shot Prada Sport with Steven Meisel. In October 2009, Tollerød switched mother agencies from Trump to DNA Model Management.
Tollerød has shot with photographers including Steven Meisel, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggot, Peter Lindbergh, Craig McDean, Karl Lagerfeld, Steven Klein, and Ellen von Unwerth. Her covers include Vogue Latin America & Mexico, Italian Vogue Beauty (twice), Vogue Nippon Beauty, French Revue de Modes, Norwegian Elle, Swedish Elle, Black, Dansk, 10, Versatille, Lula, Muse, and Tush. She has appeared in editorials for Dazed & Confused, Numéro, V, Harpers Bazaar, W, Allure, Norwegian and Swedish Elle, and Italian, British, French, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, American, and Mexican Vogue.
She has walked for many notable designers, including Dolce & Gabbana, Missoni, Max Mara, Alberta Ferretti, Christian Lacroix, Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein, Chanel and Prada. A favorite of Karl Lagerfeld, Tollerød is a fixture on Chanel's runways, and opened both the Fall 2008 RTW and Pre-Fall 2008 shows. She has been featured in campaigns for Alberta Ferretti, American Eagle Outfitters, Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman, Blanco, Costume National, Derercuny, DKNY, GAP, John Galliano, Max Mara, Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, Prada, Siviglia, Sportmax, Valentino, Victor Hugo, and White House Black Market. Tollerød was the face of Valentino's Rock 'n Dreams fragrance, and Gwen Stefani's World of Harajuku Lovers fragrance. In Brazil she has been the face of many campaigns of Victor Hugo.
Tollerød also starred in an interactive fashion editorial film created by Imagine Fashion called "Matchstick Girl". The film premiered at Soho House in New York on 14 April 2011. The film featured designs from Chanel, Prada, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jil Sander, and Céline.
Tollerød has paired with fellow models Behati Prinsloo, Caroline Trentini, Irina Lazareanu, and Coco Rocha, plus designers Luella Bartley, Christian Lacroix, Betty Jackson, and Katharine Hamnett, to raise awareness for the Environmental Justice Foundation.
