Victoria's Secret Angel Elsa Hosk smokes cigarette in NYC

She's one of the most beautiful women the world.

Victoria's Secret Angel Elsa Hosk was snapped in New York City on Thursday, smoking a cigarette while bundled up in a fashionable outfit on a wintry day in the Big Apple.

The 29-year-old was clad in a short brown fur jacket over a creme sweater with black patterns, black pants and black boots. She accessorized with a brown leather cap and purse with black and white patterns.

And while she might have an unhealthy habit, the 5ft10 model has an athletic background, as she played basketball in school, and even had the opportunity to play for a Swedish pro team called the Zero-Eights.

'I had to choose basketball or modeling because I was doing both on top of school,' Hosk told The Sun last month, adding that it was impossible to stay on both tracks, so she chose the path down the catwalk.

'It was hard coming back from jobs and having my teammates already practicing new skills,' Hosk said. 'I couldn’t keep up. I was the team captain and kept missing games, which was unacceptable, so I chose modelling. But I do miss basketball.'

The blonde added that she's somewhat of a perfectionist, telling the publication, 'If I’m not the best at something, I don’t want to do it at all.'
