Benitez in one sentence – Elsa is the perfect representative of the exotic Mexican female beauty.


Latin women are the most beautiful women in the world.

I feel very desirable when wearing some nice lingerie on or just when I have a t-shirt and jeans on; I guess it depends on the mood I’m in at the moment.

Modeling is not just glamour and fun, it is also hard work that can be very stressful at times.
