Dutch Masters

September 29th, 2009 Posted by Janelle comments (43)

Modeling moves in cycles and every few seasons it seems as though there is another set of great girls hailing from a new place. This season is all about stunning Dutch girls and it is easy to see why. Who better to embody the classicism and straightforward prettiness that defines the current look than the beauties of the Netherlands? As established Dutch models like Lara Stone and Ymre Stiekema lead the pack a host of new faces have been steadily gaining prominence these past few seasons, here is a crash course in the Dutch faces to watch.

pat

Patricia van der Vliet : With a Prada exclusive and a super selective New York season under her belt, Patricia is definitely a face to watch for Paris. Wouldn’t her perfect proportions and cool beauty look just right at Lanvin or YSL?

mirte

Mirte Maas : The stunning Mirte has a slot on the Top 10 Newcomers list and has made appearances at Prada, Calvin Klein and every other runway worth talking about. Add in the early editorial buzz and you’ve got a superstar in the making.

bregje

Bregje Heinen : As one of the MVPs of Milan, Bregje is poised to repeat her success in Paris. Though she’s got enviable proportions and a walk that just wont quit, special attention must be payed to that undeniably beautiful face. Pillow lips, an icy blue stare and the kind of sensuality that makes beauty contract dreams come true.

nicola

Nicola Haffmans : With her distinctive feline look and womanly allure, Nicola was among the stars of London Fashion week. Luella, Christopher Kane, Pringle – if there was a hip London runway she was on it. The sleek edge that blew London away will definitely impress Paris.

lisanne1

Lisanne de Jong : Alexander Wang enthusiast and Prada exclusive, Lisanne is a former Model of the Week. Her natural beauty and engaging personality make her stand out from the pack of lanky blondes. Paris should provide nothing but excitement as we can easily envision Lisanne on the most directional runways.

nimue

Nimue Smit : Though she’s only been in the game for a few seasons the enchanting Nimue is already a star in her own right. Prada campaign? Check. Vogue Italia? Check. Another flawless season? Naturally.

annad

Anna de Rijk : Anna has been on a roll since her Prada exclusive last season. With strong editorial work and impeccable seasons in each and every market there is really no stopping this regal classic beauty.

nicole

Nicole Hofman : Quality is better than quantity, with a debut at Burberry that set tongues wagging Nicole Hofman placed herself on the fast track for success. After showing up at Prada looking lovely this very fresh face is all but gauranteed to have an interesting Paris season. Expect to see her on only the most exclusive runways.

    die moet er ook nog tussen.

  5. henk says:

    Ziek. Het zijn junks. Ongelofelijk. Laat ze eten, voor god zijn sake. Maar dat is eigenlijk engels.

  6. darth020 says:

    These girls are the best and there is another one who is even more gorgeous >miss Svea Kloosterhof !

  7. padre says:

    Patricia is the new linda evengelista, hard to believe that linda is still alive and already has a reincarnation

  8. neal says:

    More blondes! OMG I am going to truly barf!!!

  9. carola says:

    Beautiful, but they bore me to tears. Mirte does look interesting but that’s it..

  11. K says:

    Janelle, this is an interesting observation and I love this new shift. Admittedly, I’d love it more if the shift were away from any Eastern or Northern European country but at least this is different. Someday, I will read of a shift to say…Vietnam, Morocco or Mexico and then I will be truly surprised and elated.

    padre, Patricia does have an uncanny resemblance to Linda Evangelista but wasn’t Milla J. was the first to “reincarnate” La Linda?

  12. Joe says:

    Mirte Maas is my favourite new girl . Alexander Wang knows whats going on

  13. ellen says:

    Mirte, Bregje, Nimue and Anna.

    Patricia just don’t have it

  14. Gustavo says:

    im not blown away by theses girls, anyway, Lisanne is by far the most beautiful of them all.

  15. harm says:

    These girls supposed to represent dutch beauty. ffs show some sense people….

    This is not the image people should have about beauty…female beauty is having curves on your body.

  16. cris says:

    Where is the mother that started this so called ‘Dutch Invasion’?

    Ahhhh she’s now among those commercial and bikini models>>>SAD SAD SAD

  17. Ambigous says:

    I’m sorry but Patricia looks beat! she’s no way can be compared to La Evangelista! No, no no way!!!!

    I know that Lindsey Wixson got all the buzz right now courtesy of her PRADA first face, but I’m putting my bet on Mirte Maas to be the next Big Star……She looks amazing!

    Is Mirte the Next Big Thing???

    Thoughts?

  18. michael Marsh says:

    The best girls are Lisanne and Mirte.They are classic beauty to the fullest.!!!!And patricia a new Linda????? are you guys blind??
    Patricia is really cool but does not look like Linda E. but one thing is certain,……IT IS ALL ABOUT THE DUTCH. >>>>>>>>>>>> KEEP IN TOUCH WITH THE DUTCH!!!!

  19. Ambigous says:

    “THE” Karen Mulder….. Doutzen Kroes, Lonneke Engel, Fredrique Van Der Wal, Dewi Driegen, Rianne Tan Heken, my favorite AVEENO girl Daniella Van Graas, Kim Noorda, Yfke Sturm….

    and of course Miss Lara Stone herself are all famous Dutch Models….

    Mirte Maas looks like on her way to the TOP…

    Alexander Wang’s muse ???? must be BIG!

  20. Ryo says:

    Ok Patricia looks like Uma Thurman. Mirte looks like Kass. Does anyone else see that?

  21. Ambigous says:

    at first glance……Mirte looks like…

    Alessandra Ambrossio!

  22. Ambigous says:

    I love Nicola Haffmans too…

    her face is promising with endless possibilities……

  23. Sarah says:

    I think you’ve got a point, Willemijn Koppelman needs to be in there aswell, do her shows arent that big but she has one of the strongest faces of the new Dutchies.

  24. Tanja D says:

    I saw that girl in Mathew Ames and Moschino C&C I was in shock she is with Direct instead of Paul Rolands girl at Supreme.
    It is not the kind of ss for a girl like that

  25. laurine says:

    Mirte & Nimue – new generation. Patricia & Bregje will have very decent career like Anna de Rijk. Others will fade. But yay Dutchies!

  26. darth020 says:

    wow the dutch wave is coming strong and thats not even the end of it ! Check out fabulous Svea Kloosterhof and the amazing twins Gwen and Donna Loos!

  27. i love rien je suis parisien says:

    I love the looks of all these dutch girls. Je t’aime dutch girl Swanny from IMG too

  28. Fred Noomen says:

    Zeg Redrock, waarom gaat er niets boven Nederland ?
    Noem mij 1 goeie reden !
    Zeker wat betreft de modellen waarvan 80% hun afspraken nooit nakomt en dat ook niet nodig vindt !

  29. eve says:

    The next Dutch girl to watch is Aileen Loquet, remember that name people!

    (TonyJones NL, Nathalie Paris)
