Ocean Drive - - September 2017 - BY KATIE JACK­SON

With looks that could kill plus an art his­tory de­gree, Elite bomb­shell Annie Gustafs­son is Mi­ami’s next top model.

How were you dis­cov­ered?

In the sum­mer of 2011 when I was at Florida In­ter­na­tional University, I used to go see jazz on South Beach at the Van Dyke Café, which doesn’t ex­ist any­more. That’s where I was dis­cov­ered by the then-di­rec­tor of Elite Mod­els.

Best part about mod­el­ing?

Trav­el­ing. Every time I go to a new city for work and I have a free morn­ing or evening, I try to hit a mu­seum.

Who in­spires you?

Cara Delev­ingne. She’s very hon­est with how she por­trays her­self; she’s silly and al­ways post­ing funny faces on In­sta­gram.

If you weren’t a model…

I al­ways thought about be­com­ing an art his­tory pro­fes­sor.

Fitness rou­tine?

I try and keep it rich in va­ri­ety. I like kick­box­ing at Sobe Kick

(1860 West Ave., Mi­ami Beach, 305-397-8484; sobe­kick.com),

and Flybarre (1919 Purdy Ave., Mi­ami Beach, 305-763-8227; fly­wheel­sports.com). I’ve never been as healthy in my en­tire life as I am now.

Cheat meal?

I’m ve­gan, so I love Bun­nie Cakes (2322 NE 2nd Ave., Mi­ami, 786-268-9790; bun­niecakes.com).

I like the lit­tle bites!

Thoughts on so­cial me­dia?

I wouldn’t post any­thing that I wouldn’t want my mom to see. That’s the rule I live by.

Not only is Mi­ami model Annie Gustafs­son a fierce force on cam­era, the Elite bomb­shell also holds a de­gree in art his­tory with mi­nors in fine arts and phi­los­o­phy from Florida In­ter­na­tional University. “I love school and could go back any day,” she...
