Always wanted to know more about top international model and Hunkemöller brand ambassador Doutzen Kroes? Read on!
Doutzen Kroes from Friesland, top international model and Hunkemöller brand ambassador, had just been awarded her secondary school diploma when she sent in a few holiday snaps to Paparazzi Models for some extra money. Before long she had shot to the top of the modelling world, featuring in shows for Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Yves Saint Laurent and Viktor & Rolf. In 2006, she became the face of L’Oréal and the following year she signed a contract with lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret (Doutzen terminated her US contract in 2015). She also shone in a Dutch film called Nova Zembla.
