Early life[edit]

After Miss Universe[edit]

Following the year as Miss Universe, Ryding worked within the fashion industry and also did some commission work. In 1988 her homesickness got the upper hand and she moved back to Sweden. In 1989 she presented the Swedish competition Melodifestivalen. Ryding was a guest of honor of the Miss Universe 2006 competition, held in Los Angeles, United States.

She is divorced from Swedish actor Kjell Bergqvist, whom she met in Monaco in 1986. The couple has two daughters.
