Describe yourself with a few words:
A girl that knows what she wants and works hard to make it happen!
What are you hobbies and biggest passions?
My hobbies are design clothing, shopping and hanging out with my friends when I am in The Netherlands. My biggest passion is fashion, I love clothing, shoes, bags everything haha. That’s why I’m so happy to be a model..I get to wear to most beautiful clothing all the time
When and how you started your modelling career? Were you scouted by somebody?
I participated in the modelling competition Elite Model Look 2012. I didn’t win but the agency liked me and that’s why Elite Amsterdam offered me a contract. It was so much fun to participate in the competition!
Did modelling influence or change your life? If yes, how?
It completely changed my life, I started wearing a lot less makeup and it gave me more confidence. I’m living really healthy now and work out a lot, before I was a model I didn’t haha.
Are you doing catwalks?
Yes, I did a couple of shows during Amsterdam Fashion Week and for other brands abroad. I love to do catwalk, it gives me such a great feeling. Everyone is looking at you and the clothing that you are wearing, it gives me so much adrenaline.
What are the biggest campaigns/brands you have done and worked for?
Shooting for ELLE NL Januari, Februari and March must have been the most exciting and big thing I have done untill now. I am in love with the results of the shoot!
Have you dreamed to be a model?
Yes! Especially when I participated in the Elite Model Look 2012 because I was able to see up-close how everything works in the modelling industry. I wanted to become a model so bad and I couldn’t speak or think about anything else.
One thing that you love most about modelling?
Being able to get into another character during photoshoots or shows, because I like acting. One day you are the cute kawaii doll, the next day you are a rock-star
What is fashion for you? How would you describe your own style?
Fashion for me is being yourself and wearing what you want to. My own style changes a lot, but right now I like to wear good basics with nice jewellery. I would describe it as simple, but classy.
What is your musthave for the season?
My musthave for this winter is a big warm black wintercoat. You can wear it with almost everything, Jeans, skirts, shorts, dresses.
Fashion/ beauty icon that you admire?
I admire Candice Swanenpoel. I love how she always looks so classy but also casual.
A fact about you that we don’t know?
Chanel is my real name, I promise haha. Sometimes people at castings don´t believe it, they think it is my artist name or something.
What makes you laugh and what makes you happy?
It makes me laugh when my loved ones are happy. Feeling loved by friends and family makes me happy.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
I get my inspiration from magazines and friends. Once, I had one wall completely covered in pictures out of magazines.
How do you see Life through your eyes?
To me life is an amazing journey in which (for the most part) you can decide how you want it to be. Always do what makes you happy and make amazing memories.

Abs, a good career and the people who you love.
