Her bio from Wikipedia:

Angelika Kallio (born 15 September 1972) is a Latvian-born Finnish model. She is one of the most successful fashion models from Finland, living and working abroad since the early 1990s.

Background
Born in Latvia, Kallio moved to Finland with her mother as a child, attending the Finnish-Russian School in Helsinki. At the age of 15, she was signed by Paparazzi, the biggest modeling agency in Finland.

Career
Kallio began her international modelling career in 1990 with an editorial shoot for British Elle. She was soon noticed by Karl Lagerfeld, who became her patron, and Kallio started an intense collaboration with the designer and the prestigious fashion house of Chanel.

Throughout the 1990s, Kallio graced the covers of various international fashion magazines, including Amica, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Glamour, L'Officiel, Marie Claire and Vogue, in addition to numerous editorial shoots in other magazines like Esquire, Harper's Bazaar, Rolling Stone and W. Kallio also worked with many fashion houses and designers such as Alberta Ferretti, Anna Sui, Azzedine Alaïa, Badgley Mischka, Calvin Klein, Carolina Herrera, Celine, Dolce & Gabbana, Helmut Lang, Lanvin, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Sergio Rossi, Valentino, Versace and Victoria's Secret, appearing in advertisements and fashion shows. Additionally, Kallio also appeared in advertisements for Macy's and Neiman Marcus.

As an international top model, Kallio worked all around the world, living in Paris, New York and Miami, and being featured in various news and entertainment programmes, including WABC-TV's Eyewitness News and Hard Copy. She also had a small cameo appearance in the 1993 romantic comedy film For Love or Money, starring Michael J. Fox and Gabrielle Anwar.

In the 2000s, Kallio worked for Nicole Miller for ten years, also having her own lingerie design business. As of 2010, Kallio models among others for J.Crew, and appeared on the cover of Finnish Elle for its 2nd anniversary issue. Kallio is represented by Ford Models in New York.

Personal
Kallio lives in New York with her 13-year-old son Maximo from a previous relationship, and they share their home with Kallio's current partner Roy Stillman of Stillman Development International. In addition to modelling, Kallio also works as a real estate agent.

Kallio's autobiography Huippumallin päiväkirja (Top Model's Diary) was published by Tammi in Finland in 2005.

Her bio from her personal website:

Angelika was born in Latvia and moved to Finland at the age of 14. One year later she knocked on the door of Paparazzi, the largest modeling agency in Helsinki, looking for a chance, but she was sent home to wash off the heavy makeup she was wearing. Lesson learned, she went back to the natural look and soon she was awarded her first contract. It was the beginning of a fruitful twelve-year career of a supermodel.
Being an international top model Angelika has lived and worked all over the world, including Paris, New York and Miami. Her natural beauty has graced the covers of many leading magazines, such as Amica, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Glamour, Marie Claire and Vogue, to name a few. She has worked with Karl Lagerfeld, Gianni Versace, Valentino Ferreti, Donna Karan, Feragamo, D&G and many famous photographers.
Currently Angelika resides in New York City and is represented by Next in Miami, Ford in New York, and Paparazzi in Helsinki. In addition to modeling, she runs a lingerie design business. Life is a journey for her and she makes it an exciting one. When her destiny fails to offer interesting opportunities, Angelika is out there actively searching for them. She is humble about her looks and strongly believes that success is the result of confidence, hard work and professionalism.
She is active and athletic believing that fitness is the key to physical beauty and health. Among Angelika's favorite activities are martial arts and yoga. She runs three miles every day and gets around town on her bicycle. This intense daily routine is an integral part of her life and the way she achieves balance and relaxation. Madonna and Celine Dion are Angelika's role models. She regards them as powerful personalities who managed to prevail over the hardships of life and achieve incredible success through dedication and perseverance.

Wow, thank you for great finds! Once I searched her, but didn`t found a thread. I was too lazy to start my own, and I wouldn´t have these old pics anyway. She is still gorgeous, she was on the cover of Finnish Elle, May issue. Though, I have to say this photo is not the most flattering one.
