Silvstedt grew up in a small village named Bollnäs in Northern Sweden, along with her two siblings. At the age of five she started alpine skiing, with her father being the captain of a local ski team. She eventually developed into an accomplished member of the Swedish National Ski Team, placing fourth in the Super-Giant Slalom youth championship. Unfortunately a shoulder injury ended her skiing career when she was 16.

However, that was just the beginning of a new career. She entered the Miss Sweden beauty pageant in 1993, finishing as the runner-up and heading towards the Miss World Pageant in South Africa, where she placed among the Top 10. This enabled her to pursue a successful career in modeling, signing with a Parisian agency and working for major fashion names such as Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Christian Dior, Givenchy, Valentino and Loris Azzaro. Her career in high fashion has greatly added to her net worth.

Aside from boosting her wealth, her success in modeling also contributed to her popularity, leading her to meet Hugh Hefner in 1996, who offered her a photo shoot for Playboy magazine; she became the December 1996 Playmate of the Month, and then the 1997 Playmate of the Year, so her fame and fortune skyrocketed. She went on to appear in other Playboy issues, including Playboy Special Editions and Playboy Videos.

In 1998, Silvstedt landed a contract for the GUESS? Print Ad and Spokesmodel campaign, which enabled her to reach stardom in the modeling world, greatly contributing to her net worth. Becoming a world-class, high-fashion model, Silvstedt has worked for a variety of major brands such as Renault, Lynx and Nike, and has been featured in a number of magazines, such as FHM, Hello!, Glamour, GQ, Vanity Fair and Maxim, but actually appearing on the cover of more than 500 magazines, which certainly boosted her stardom and her net worth.

Her involvement in modeling also led her to try herself at designing, launching her own lingerie collection called Very Victoria Silvstedt in 2006, which was later officially launched for retail in collaboration with the Marie Meili brand in Paris.

Additionally, Silvstedt has pursued an acting career in the ’90s, apearing in television series including “Malibu, CA”, “Melrose Place” and “Ocean Ave”, as well as in the comedy films “BASEketball”, “The Independent” and “Boat Trip”. She also had leading roles in European films “La mia vita a stelle e strisce” and “Un maresciallo in gondola”, and in the British mocumentary “Just for the Record”. Her acting career has significantly improved her net worth too.

Meanwhile, Silvstedt has also worked as a TV presenter, hosting US entertainment shows such as CBS’ “Candid Camera”, Channel 4’s “Eurotrash” and E!’s “Wild On!”, as well as many awards shows. She has also hosted shows in Europe, such as the Italian and French versions of the game show “Wheel of Fortune” from 2006 to 2012. She had her own reality TV show on E! in 2008, called “Victoria Silvstedt: My Perfect Life”, and two years later had another show on Eurosport during the 2010 Winter Olympics, called “Sport by Victoria”. All added to her wealth.

Silvsted has also been involved in music, having released a dance music album called “Girl on the Run” in 1999, which went gold in Sweden, improving her fortune too.

She has also written an autobiography called “Les Secrets de Victoria. Dans la Tête de Victoria Silvstedt” with journalist Christelle Crosnier, released in 2010.

In her perivate life, Silvstedt was married to news anchor Chris Wragge from 2000 to 2009. Sources believe she is single at present.
