Israeli model Esti Ginzburg is best known for her work with Abercrombie & Fitch. She entered the industry when she was just 8-years-old and signed with her first agency at the age of 14. She made her SI Swimsuit debut four years later when she traveled to Naples, Italy, with Riccardo Tinelli in 2009. She traveled to Rajasthan, India, the following year and was photographed by Raphael Mazzucco in the Philippines for her third and most recent magazine feature in 2011.
The 33-year-old has been featured in global campaigns for major brands, including Tommy Hilfiger, Burberry, FCUK and Pull and Bear. She also served a short stint in the film and TV industry and was in the 2010 movie Twelve and Movie 43 in ’13.
“Being in the issue definitely changes your life in some way because everybody knows what a Sports Illustrated model is, and [now I’m] one of those,” Ginzburg said about the impact the brand had on her career. “All the girls are just real girls. They’re nice, they’re approachable, they’re healthy. They’re real. You do get more [of a] chance to be yourself. I’m not here promoting a certain brand. ”
The mom of two lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Adi Keizman, and sons Raphael and Michael. She often uses her Instagram platform to share snippets of her family and life in the city with her 286,000 followers.
