Visiting my mother agent, Wilma Wakker. I was 13 and a day in the big city was already a big deal for me, even without a visit to a modelling agency that had spoken to me.
· How did you end up in the modelling world?
They came up to me on the street when I was shopping on Kalverstraat in Amsterdam.
· Describe your fashion style…
Simple, sporty but still classical. A little bit French but mixed with the American classics. Jeans, leather jacket, plain T-shirt or shirt and loafers. I rarely wear heels.
· What is your most memorable career moment?
All the special trips I have made are moments that will stay with me and that I cherish. You get to go to places where you would not normally be able or allowed to go. Or to fashion houses which are not open to the public. Kenya, Iceland and a private island in the Caribbean were the most beautiful spots. The fashion houses of Chanel and Prada are beautiful on the inside.
· What is your ultimate fashion tip?
Dress with care but do listen to your instincts. How does the material feel, is it comfortable? If you feel good in your own clothes, it makes you three times more attractive.
· As a model you spend a lot of time waiting. What is currently on your play list?
I really love Hip Hop and Trap, but I also listen to folk. It varies a lot from month to month. Right now I’m in the summer vibe, so I’m listening to a lot of reggae. I recently rediscovered the original music to the Jungle Book on which Louis Prima sings ‘I Wanna Be Like You’. So now I’m listening to Louis Prima.
· Which item is on your wish list?
A new handbag!
