Elsa Benitez was born on 12 August 1977 in Sonora, Mexico. With Linda Evangelista as one of her childhood idols, Elsa would also have a chance to follow her dreams. She got her modeling start when she was 18, after winning a model search in Costa Rica in 1995. Modeling gigs poured in for Elsa soon after, first in Mexico, where she started out her career, and then in the United States and Europe. In 1996, Elsa appeared on the cover of Vogue Italy three times, in April, August and September.

Signed with Elite Model Management, Elsa Benitez then managed to grace the covers of plenty of top fashion magazines, including Vogue, Elle, Glamour, Mademoiselle, Harper's Bazaar, and Marie Claire.

The Mexican beauty has also done advertising campaign work for Dolce & Gabbana, Macy's, Episode, I-N-C, J.Crew, Oscar de la Renta, Rena Lange, Nine West, Valentino, and Jones New York. Joining models such as Tyra Banks and Laetitia Casta, Elsa has also donned the lingerie and clothes of everyone's favorite company, Victoria's Secret.

When she was 22, Elsa appeared in the 1999 Pirelli Calendar that featured "Women Through the Decades". She was photographed as representative of the groovy '70s in the exclusive issue.

Elsa Benitez may not be as recognized as fellow models Cindy Crawford and Elle MacPherson as of yet, but she is bound to become the next Latin supermodel of the millennium, especially after being selected to grace the cover of the 2001 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

With acting lessons under her belt and beauty that is sure to melt the screen, Elsa Benitez plans to enter the world of film, and hopes to work in both Spanish and English films.

Elsa is currently married to former NBA player Rony Seikaly, they shot for American Vogue together.
