Elle Liberachi

The U.K. cover girl of the year, lingerie model, and Brit bombshell is set to take the States by sexy storm.

The Heidi Klums and Adriana Limas and baby-claiming Gisele Bündchens of the world have dominated catwalks, advertis­ing, and our eyeballs for the past 10 years. We say it’s someone else’s turn. Enter Elle Liberachi. The 23-year-old British lingerie model and Guess runway girl embodies everything we love about the great fashion legends who came before her: insanely stunning looks, soulful eyes, and the kindness to happily chat with the schlubs at Maxim. Elle, we know we just met, but will you marry us?

Are you comfortable being practically naked in front of the camera?

I’m at ease in my bikini or lingerie. I’m so used to being naked now; if a photographer makes me feel comfortable, I relax. It’s important to work with people you can be yourself around.

You must have Bond-girl dreams, right?

It would be amazing to be in such an iconic film series. Octopussy made me a fan when I was nine. My favorite Bond girl is Ursula Andress in Dr. No. She meant business and was beautiful.
