Can you introduce yourself to our Spotted Style followers? Who are you and how would you describe yourself?
He guys! I’m Kelly, I’m from the Netherlands and live in a city close to Amsterdam (Alkmaar). My boyfriend and I moved in together, we just got a new house! I’m 23 years old and I started modelling when I was 17 years old. My first trip was to Paris!
What are you hobbies and biggest passions?
I really like to sing! A lot of people don’t know that haha! And going to the gym has become a nice routine.
When and how did you start your modelling career? Were you scouted by someone?
I went on a school trip to London when I was 13 years old. We looked at this weird guy with his weird shoes and where laughing at him. Then he came to me and asked me if I ever thought about modelling.
Did modelling influence or change your life? If yes, in what way?
Yes it definitely changed my life! I’m a fulltime model now and I travel the world. It’s so much fun!
Are you doing catwalks? Have you walked a show for Fashion week?
Yes I do. But not so much anymore, I used to do the fashion weeks at the start of my career but now my focus is more on other things!
What are the biggest campaigns/brands you have done and worked for?
I worked with brands such as: Calvin Klein, Benetton, Max Mara, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Versace, Triumph, Guess and many others!
Have you always dreamed of becoming a model?
I think I was too young to ever think about modelling. I really liked doing boyish stuff like playing soccer etc.
What does it take to be a successful model?
I think you always have to be positive, sometimes modelling is really hard. It’s not only about being beautiful it’s a lot more than that! All the disappointments, options that don’t go through, flights, long working days, early call times, castings etc.! It takes a lot of patience!
How do you stay in shape and do you have beauty tips for our Spotted Style followers?
I’m really lucky that I always have the way I am now. I can eat what ever I want, but I still work out. I really like doing the body pump classes and kick boxing. It’s a good way of staying in shape… And of course I drink a lot of water and eat a lot of fruit to keep my skin healthy!
One thing that you love most about modelling?
I really like the fact that you can travel so much and see so many different places. If I wasn’t a model I wouldn’t be able to see so many different places! Plus the fact that you meet so many different people and of course every day is different. I’m not the type of girl who sits behind a computer 😉
What is fashion for you? How would you describe your own style?
I don’t really care about fashion, I just wear what I like.
If we spot you on the street, what would your daily outfit be?
A pair of ripped jeans, a sweater and some sneakers. I have an addiction to sneakers!
What is your must-have for the season?
I really like this cute little bag from Yves Saint Laurent it is called the Sac de jour mini Crossbody Bag they have it in a lot of colours, I really like the red one!
Fashion/ beauty icon that you admire?
I like Donatella Versace, she’s such a fun person and always happy and a hard worker!
What makes you laugh and what makes you happy?
My boyfriend haha 😉 He’s always there when I need him, even when I’m on the other side of the world. He manages to make me smile when I’m sad.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Actually I really like Instagram! You see so many different styles of so many different people!
How do you see life through your eyes?
Life is beautiful! Do what ever you want, and what ever makes you happy. It’s your life! Also work hard for your goals, you will achieve them one day!
What is the most important lesson you have learnt until now from the school of life?
Not everyone is meant to stick around and sometimes you have to let go, even though it’s really hard.
The things that are worth fighting for are?
Your goals! Also your family, they are there whenever you need them!
