Photographed by Sante D’Orazio, Elsa Hosk channels her inner self for Maxim’s February cover as she dons on a glittering necklace and little else in the nearly naked image.
Marking her first time on the cover and styled by Isabel Dupre, Elsa embraces lingerie inspired looks as well as fur and crystal embroidered fabrics and poses in Las Vegas for the sexy shoot with a showgirl theme.
Elsa, in her interview, opens up about being a professional basketball player two years before becoming a model. She says, “I love the adrenaline. My brain is competitive. I get myself to a point where I feel like I’m going to explode! It’s so much fun. I can’t really explain it. I think I’ve always been like that. Playing sports is great when you’re young. It teaches you how to focus, how to direct your energy, how not to think about a million other things that are going on.”
