While going trough the pages of some fashion magazines, we spotted a familiar face! Different face! We had an eye on the Dutch model Mierijn Blokzijl from a while ago and this was only one more reason to spot her! So we contacted the new model in our spotlight and she gave her interview for Spotted Style! We heard more about the 22 years old model’s passions which don’t limit only with modelling! Mierijn was scouted many times before she decided to make modelling part of her life. When she was ready to go for it, she signed with Anka Model Management. Being 22 years old, she already worked with Dutch designers as Dorhout Mees, Maison The Faux and Marga Wiemans. Do you want to know more about the new spotted face? Read the full interview with the stunner Mierijn and keep on following her on Spotted Style! We promise to keep you posted!
Can you introduce yourself to our Spotted Style followers? Who are you and how would you describe yourself?
Hi, my name is Mierijn I’m 22 years old and I’m living in Groningen, The Netherlands.
I’m a model and a hairdresser. I love to have fun and make people laugh.
What are you hobbies and biggest passions?
My hobbies/passions are fashion, hair/make-up and of course modelling. Those 3 things are 90% of the time on my mind.
When and how you started your modelling career? Were you scouted by somebody?
Well, when I was younger I was scouted about 3 times but I never did something about it. I was always scared to travel and I just wasn’t ready for it , so when I was 19 I was ready and I wrote to Anka an email with my information and she was interested! So one thing lead to another and now we are here!
Did modelling influence or change your life? If yes, in what way?
It did not change my life but for sure it has some big influence on it.
I am more confident and I am much more independent.
Are you doing catwalks? Have you walked a show for Fashion week?
Yes I love to do catwalks, it’s actually one of the things I love most about being a model. I love the feeling of walking on a runway with some nice clothes on and people watching me lol. Yes I did walk shows for Amsterdam which is a lot of fun to do. Hopefully next season again.
What are the biggest campaigns/brands you have done and worked for?
I did a shoot for Elle, which is coming out this month, I worked with Dutch designers, Dorhout Mees, Maison The Faux, and Marga Weimans which I loved doing! I have so much respect for these people.
Have you ever dreamed to be a model?
Yes, since I saw the first season of America’s next top model, I knew I wanted to be a model one day and do shoots/shows, crazy enough it did happen!
What does it takes to be a successful model?
I think it’s good to be down to earth, willing to wait for hours (lol), and being humble and polite.
One thing that you love most about modelling?
I love to meet new people and create something amazing with a team that you don’t know that well most of the time, I also love to travel and the wear amazing clothes.
What is fashion for you? How would you describe your own style?
Fashion for me is everything. When I’m modelling my style is a bit rocker/punk, pretty eddgy.
I love to wear black and leather, but when I’m working as a hairdresser or when I’m going out with my friens I’ll love to glam up my style with a bit of 70’s inspired clothes. I love both styles.
If we spot you randomly on the street, what would be your daily outfit?
Probably with a faux fur coat, a black skinny jeans and my Dr, Martin boots. I can’t live without them.

I think I have to say my Dr. Martin Boots.

Tumblr, I can scroll on Tumblr for hours, just to watch amazing pictures.
How do you see life through your eyes?
I see it as a play ground to develop yourself and grow as a person and to learn a lot!
