Overanalyzing Josephine Skriver's Instagram

Drawing Wildly Irresponsible Conclusions About Raider Nation's Most Prominent Danish Representative, Via Her 'Gram

By Geoff Rynex ·

Sometimes, in an attempt to sneak a peek into the interior lives of the rich and famous, we’re forced to launch an investigation into the evidence at the public’s disposal. By which we mean, grossly overanalyze whom these people choose to follow on Instagram.

Today, we take a look into the deep follows of one Josephine Skriver, the 24-year-old Danish Victoria’s Secret angel, proud Nashville resident, rabid Raiders fan and LGBTQ activist who's galavanting around Paris runways this week. Let's see what Freud, Jung and Rogers have to say about the lass. Just kidding, let's dive headlong down the rabbit hole and bullshit this thing...

The Bell Curve

Fellow models, clothing companies, photographers, makeup artists, just about every Oakland Raider, fan sites, LGBTQ rights groups, fitness accounts, including one she runs with fellow VS angel Jasmine Tookes. 


Josephine follows a lot of sports highlight accounts, which no one else we've ever profiled does. She also follows the official NHL account, UFC and the Nashville Predators. This is a Danish supermodel, mind you. So right off the bat, JoJo's going to be hard to pin down from a psuedopsychological standpoint. 

In addition to current Raiders, she follows the account for team legend Charles Woodson's wine label. Basically what this tells us is that Skriver's fandom isn't some little personal branding quirk. She could be part of the Black Hole. In other news: Charles Woodson has a wine label.

Though there's a smattering of musicians among her follows, this stands as the sole pop-culture candy account of the bunch. A guilty pleasure, hidden in plain sight for those who dare overanalyze. 

Of the 833 followers of adorable kindergarten stoopstyle star Sofia P's account, eight are VS angels. Either there are sinister, lingerie-model-illuminati messages embedded throughout this account, or one of them came across it, saw how adorable it was, and caused the other dominos to fall. 

Some bro who does marketing for Shark Tank, looks like. This one's a real head scratcher unless Skriver's trying to pitch a harebrained startup, which we're going to choose to believe for humor purposes. 


Josephine's follows paint the picture of a woman who, however busy, manages her own Instagram rather than having a team do it for her. She may or may not have an entrepreneurial spirit, does a good job diversifying her feed with modeling images, candids, selfies and tropical stuff, and probably has very strong feelings about an American football team in Las Vegas. JoJo's cool.
