Doutzen Kroes – Victoria’s Secret Angel

October 7, 2012 under Famous

Doutzen Kroes is one of the Victoria’s Secret Angels of Dutch descent.  She modeled for high end brands including Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Versace, and Tiffany & Co… the list goes on and I won’t bore you with it.

Born in the town of Eastermar, Netherlands in 1985, she signed up with an agency at 18 and quickly was told to lose weight.  She just wasn’t skinny enough for "sample size".  Instead of losing weight, she decided to do modeling that would embrace her curvy figure.

By Forbes magazine, she is now one of the top earning models with an estimated income of $6 million.  Not bad for a model who was told that she is too fat.

In 2010 Doutzen Kroes participated in a "Beauty of Health" discussion on the impact of sample size, 34’’-24’’-24’’dimensions that were expected of her at the height of 1.78 m.

Calendar with Victoria Secret Models

September 20, 2012 under Art

I saw these beautiful images online from a calendar.  I didn’t know who the photographer was, so I put up the question here for my readers.  Carl from UK (as you can see in the comments below) was the first one who helped me to make some sense out of who these photos are by.  This photoshoot is for VMANS magazine’s 25th issue and photography by Willy Vanderperre from Belgium.

I looked up a little bit more information and the stylist to thank for such pantyhose exposure is Carine Roitfeld.  She worked with Victoria Secret models for this magazine.  It really looks like the brought the best of the best together to make this happen.
