Kelly Gale has broken into the international modelling scene. 

Born in Sweden, this 23-year-old model walked the Victoria's Secret ramp for the first time in 2013.

Discovered at 13, Kelly loves to cook and eat clean. A fitness enthusiast, she started doing yoga when she was just three. 

When she's not modeling, Kelly loves to workout -- pilates, boxing and jump rope are her favourite workouts.

Scroll down to take a look at some of her H-A-W-T pics. 

Kelly's mother is an Indian. She started her modeling career in Paris, when she walked the ramp for Chanel. 

She grew up playing tennis and soccer. ' Soccer training was an opportunity to lose myself in the zone,' she admits.  

'At 14, I saw a video of (Brazilian model) Adriana Lima,' Kelly shared on Instagram. 'Her (Adriana) work ethics inspired me. From that moment, my goal was to make it to the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show at the age of 18.' When she finally got a chance to walk on the VS ramp, it was the happiest moment of her life. 

She is being touted as the 'hottest body in the modeling business'.

An Instagram sensation, she has over a million followers. 

These days, she trains like a professional athlete. 'I wake up at the crack of dawn to box and jump rope. Mentally, it's no different to the training that 8-year-old Kelly had to endure to be the best soccer or tennis player that she could be.'
