Doutzen Kroes is a Dutch model and actress who is best known for being a Victoria's Secret Angel. She came in second on the 2014 Forbes top-earning models list (after Gisele Bündchen), estimated to have earned $8 million in one year.

Ms. Kroes described herself as a "tomboy" in her youth, although she applied to modeling agency Paparazzi Model Management in the Netherlands when she was older. The agency sent her to New York City, and after being cast a few times by Victoria's Secret, they asked her to try out as an "angel".


She has been featured on the covers of Time, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Seventeen, Elle, Marie Claire, Glamour, W, Avantgarde, Dazed & Confused, and Numéro. She also appears regularly in the Victoria's Secret catalog and walked the runway of the company's fashion show from 2005 to 2014. Ms. Kroes' campaigns include Gucci, Tommy Hilfiger, Versace, Valentino, Blumarine and Calvin Klein for both their 'White' label and their fragrance 'Eternity'. In 2005, she was selected as "Model of The Year" on Vogue.com by readers. She was presented on the May 2007 cover of American Vogue as one of the "World’s Next Top Models" next to Chanel Iman among others. Along with several of these models, she appeared in the 2008 Pirelli Calendar.

At the end of August 2008, Victoria's Secret confirmed to People magazine that Ms. Kroes was to be the newest Victoria's Secret Angel. Her first campaign as the brand's newest Angel was "Supermodel Obsession". In September 2009, she signed to be the new face for Swiss cashmere label Repeat for two years.

She has been taking acting classes in New York City for several years and has stated in interviews that she plans to act in more movies to come. In 2012, she continued her work for L'Oreal, Tiffany & Co. and Victoria's Secret, and appeared on the cover of numerous international editions of Vogue.
