Dutch supermodel Doutzen Kroes has been a fixture on international magazine covers for almost ten years, five of those as a beauty ambassador for L’Oreal, a Victoria Secret Angel, not to mention the face of many fashion campaigns including Mugler, Gucci, Versace, Valentino, Calvin Klein and Tiffany.
Doutzen is an avid athlete, having grown up speed skating and cycling in her hometown in northern Holland. After being raised in a household that emphasized health and fitness over fashion, Doutzen had never even heard of Victoria’s Secret when she first landed in NY as an eighteen-year-old model, and booked her first appearance in the catalogue. Known for her physique as much as for her beauty, Doutzen is perfectly suited to her campaign work for L’Oreal, appearing in ads for makeup and hair.
Now a mom of two, Doutzen is pursuing an acting career and charitable work for HIV and AIDS awareness, education, and prevention in kids and youth. How many models can claim their own wax figure in Madame Tussaud’s? This one can! Let’s hope Doutzen doesn’t tire of being in the spotlight for a long time to come, while balancing motherhood – yummy-mommy alert! – philanthropy, and a meteoric career. 4.4 million followers on Instagram and counting! @doutzen
