|Elsa Benítez (born on December 8, 1977 in Hermosillo,
Sonora, Mexico) is a Mexican supermodel. She is the first Mexican Supermodel.|
Benítez, who held Linda Evangelista as one of her childhood idols, began modeling after winning an international model search in Costa Rica in 1995. She subsequently began modeling in Mexico, the United States and Europe. She became a supermodel after being chosen by photographer Steven Meisel and being featured many times on the US and Italian Vogue for Meisel's layouts.
In 1996, she appeared on the cover of Vogue Italy three times, on the April, August and September covers. After signing with Elite Model Management, she appeared on the covers of many fashion magazines, including Vogue, ELLE, Glamour, Mademoiselle, Harper's Bazaar, and Marie Claire. Benítez has also done advertising campaign work for Dolce & Gabbana, Macy's, Episode, I-N-C, J.Crew, Óscar de la Renta, Rena Lange, Nine West, Valentino, and Jones New York, and has modelled for Victoria's Secret. Benítez appeared in the 1999 Pirelli Calendar that featured "Women Through the Decades." She was photographed as a representative of the "groovy '70s."
She also appeared in Enrique Iglesias' music video "Love to See You Cry" in 2002. In 2003, she appeared in the ad for the perfume Mahora Guerlain, which was shot by Bruno Aveillan.
Benítez was selected to be on the cover of the 2001 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She has appeared in the Swimsuit Edition five times since her debut in the magazine. In the Miss Universe 2004, Elsa was one of the judges. In the 2004 issue, Sports Illustrated reported Benítez's story of nearly boarding the doomed TWA Flight 800–a Boeing 747 that exploded over the Atlantic soon after takeoff. She was crying on the phone to her husband and said, "I feel something is going to happen on the flight." Her husband told her not to worry, but she continued to cry. She changed her ticket and took off ten minutes after TWA Flight 800. "It made me appreciate so much that just being alive is a gift."
Benítez plans to enter the film industry and as such has taken acting lessons. She hopes to work in both Spanish and English language films.
