Doutzen Kroes has been on my radar for a while now when I came across some obscure old videos of her walking down the catwalk as a teen I think. Yea, she is probably not a new “discovery” to many of you as she is currently one of the highest paid supermodels in the world now, however I am deeply in love with her therefore she gets her own post.

Doutzen became the newest Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2008, and prior to, has graced the covers of Time, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar,Seventeen, Numéro, and the like. She now appears regularly in the Victoria’s Secret catalog and walked the runway of the company’s fashion show in 2005, 2006 and 2008. Kroes’ campaigns include Gucci, Tommy Hilfiger, Escada, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Versace and Neiman Marcus. In August 2005, she was named spokesmodel for the Calvin Klein “Eternity” fragrance campaign, replacing American actress Scarlett Johansson, and, in April 2006, she signed a three-year contract with L’Oréal Paris. Kroes can currently be seen in the company’s commercials alongside Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington.

In 2005, Kroes was selected as “Model of The Year” on Vogue.com by readers[citation needed] and was featured on the cover of the May 2007 issue with Hilary Rhoda, Caroline Trentini, Raquel Zimmermann, Sasha Pivovarova, Agyness Deyn, Coco Rocha, Jessica Stam, Chanel Iman, and Lily Donaldson as the new crop of “supermodels.” Along with several of these models, she appeared in the 2008 Pirelli Calendar.

In July 2007, earning at an estimated total of $1.5 million in the past twelve months, Forbes named Kroes fourteenth in the list of the World’s 15 Top-Earning Supermodels. In April 2008, she soared to the fifth position, with an estimated income of $6 million.

Kroes also is in the official Frisian provincial campaign for the West Frisian language which is her mother tongue.

In 2006, Omrop Fryslân made a documentary about Kroes. Piter Claus follows Kroes during the fashion week in Milan. The documentary won a NL-Award for best regional documentary.

Victoria’s Secret recently confirmed to People magazine that Kroes is the newest Victoria’s Secret Angel. Her first campaign as the brand’s newest Angel is “Supermodel Obsession”, alongside Adriana Lima.

Currently, she is signed by DNA Models.

Trivia:
Doutzen Kroes is pronounced like “Doubts-in Cruise”
As of November 2008. she’s dating some asshole named DJ Ruckus.
