Doutzen Kroes Biography

Doutzen Kroes thinks it’s high time the Netherlands received their due. "At the moment I believe that there is a Netherlands wave,” she says enthusiastically. “In the past there were many Brazilian, Belgian and Russian girls. Now the Dutchies are even too!" If the Dutch are finally getting the recognition they deserve, much of the credit deserves to go to Doutzen herself. That’s because the Friesland native has been working non-stop for the past two years. Since making her professional debut, Doutzen has been featured in campaigns for Victoria's Secret, Calvin Klein, Gucci, Tommy Hilfiger, Escada, Dolce & Gabbana, and Valentino.

Her beautiful face has also graced the covers of Harper’s Bazaar, Numero, Avant Garde, and Vogue. In fact, readers of gave Doutzen the ultimate honor in 2005 when they selected her as Model of the Year. “I had no notion,” she gushed at the time. “I am very lucky and grateful over it. Such a thing is always a big compliment!”

While the 5’10” Dutch beauty loves the opportunity to travel and meet new and exciting people, she does admit there is a down side to being among the world’s most in-demand models: “I miss my family very much.”
