Model Crush Monday - Dutch Beauty Romee Strijd

Natural beauty Romee Strijd isn’t new to the modeling world, but at 21 years old she is breaking out to be one of 2017’s hottest models in the business.  At 5’11”with fresh girl-next-door looks along with a sexy-sporty body, Romee was an obvious choice for Victoria’s Secret, becoming an Angel in age 19, appearing in the catalogues and most notably in the VS runway show. 

Approached by an agent at age 13, Romee was too shy to pursue a career in modeling, but by age 15 she had spent enough time streaming the Victoria’s Secret shows on her computer and practicing her own runway walk, that she was eager to give the business a try.  After two years of modeling, traveling and missing teenage life, she returned home to finish school.  After graduation she was back to work where she quickly caught the eye of designers and editors who cast her in the top shows and magazine editorials.  Timing is everything and a model has to be ready for the industry just as the industry has to be ready for her particular look. 

Romee loves to work out and does weight training, cross training and barre classes with her fellow VS models.  Her love of fitness makes her a natural for Victoria’s Secrets VSX Sports line of athletic wear.  She proves that a healthy, fit body is far sexier than a rail thin figure in her recent Maxim magazine spread shot by the legendary Gilles Bensimon.

At just 21 years old, fresh, sexy, sporty Romee will be on the industry radar for years to come.

Model Crush Monday - Daphne Groeneveld

Wide-set blue eyes, bombshell figure, and more than a passing resemblance to Brigitte Bardot have made Dutch supermodel Daphne Groeneveld a favorite amongst designers, photographers and editors for over five years.  It is hard to imagine that this beauty once hated her pillow lips, which have now become her trademark.

Scouted at age sixteen, Daphne has gone on to front many campaigns based on her unique beauty, appearing in fragrance campaigns for Jean Paul Gaulthier, Dior, Calvin Klein, and Tom Ford – a rare feat for any successful model. 

Daphne has a rare ability to appear child-like or “femme-enfant” in some editorials and campaigns, and then overtly sexual in others, which makes her one of the most versatile models in the industry, allowing her to easily go between runways and editorials, to commercial clients.


At age 21, Daphne continues to appear in campaigns such as for Tom Ford and Miu Miu, and on the top magazine covers such as Vogue, Bazaar and Elle worldwide.  This “Baby Bardot” is ranked amongst the top 50 models in the world and has so many great projects in her future. With a face and body like hers, she will no doubt tire of the modeling industry long before it tires of her!

XOXO  Shelley
