Doutzen Kroes biography
Bio:Born in Eastermar in the Netherlands, Kroes scored a modeling contract after she sent her photo to the modeling agency Paparazzi in Amsterdam hoping to earn enough cash to buy more fashion magazines. Soon the 5'10" stunner was filling their pages, gracing ads for everyone from Calvin Klein to Dolce & Gabbana.
In September 2004 Doutzen Kroes appeared on her first cover, for French Elle.
In 2005, Kroes was selected as "Model of The Year" on Vogue.com by reader 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 $4.9 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. In May 2009 Forbes named Kroes fifth again in the list of the World's 15 Top-Earning Supermodels.
At the end of August 2008, Victoria's Secret confirmed to People magazine that Kroes was to be the newest Victoria's Secret Angel. Her first campaign as the brand's newest Angel is "Supermodel Obsession", alongside Adriana Lima.
