What is it about the Dutch that’s so captivating? It seems there’s something in the water in the Netherlands. Full-lipped, buxom Dutch favourites are Doutzen Kroes, Lara Stone, and Rianne Ten Haken. My latest favourite model is 17 year old Daphne Groeneveld, born on Christmas Eve in Leiderdrop.
Groeneveld had her first runway season in Fall 2010, around the same time she nabbed her first Paris Vogue cover alongside Tom Ford, snapped by Mert & Marcus. Following was a string of covers and campaigns for Louis Vuitton and Givenchy, and the face of Dior Addict Parfum (see link below), styled in reference to a flirty Brigitte Bardot. She even received dancing lessons from Madonna for a Miu Miu campaign video. In the two short years that she shot to fame, she has acquired a string of influential editorials in the mags that matter, and shot by famed photographers around the world like Kadel, Demarchelier, and Meisel.
Daphne is currently ranked 9th in models.com’s Top 50 Models.
