Kolfinna received 42 percent of the vote defeating veterans such as Shalom Harlow and Alana Zimmer.

Last year, Kolfinna came in second in Iceland's Ford modeling contest and has been successful in the modeling world ever since. Icelandic modeling agency Eskimo Models was the first one to sign her but last year, she landed a contract with Next, one of Britain’s top modeling agencies.

Over the last few weeks, Kolfinna has been featured prominently at fashion weeks around the world. In New York, she walked exclusively for Marc Jacobs and in Milan, she walked for Versace, Pucci and Marni to name a few.
