Models Damaris Goddrie, Cai Lee, Aamito Lagum and Dilone are also on the ”Bad Girls” list, all dressed up in Saint Laurent, Alexander Wang and Lanvin.

Spotted Style had the pleasure to visit themodelshouse.tv, only a few months after its opening. We were warmly welcomed by the whole team and had the pleasure of meeting Freek Koster, who told us more about the rising platform for models and the Ruby & Rose calendar.
Freek is the director of Touché Models and Future Faces– two of the leading model agencies in the Netherlands, and whose faces are constantly in our spotlight due to their successful careers.

Last week I got an invitation for party on a bike from my friend Olivia Cooney, the founder of Pop-Up Fitness. As soon as I heard the word ”party” and that Olivia is involved, I was in because with her the fun was guaranteed! Now you maybe wonder where you can party on a bike? Stop wondering and let me tell you more about my new hobby! The only place in Amsterdam with this hot new concept is ROCYCLE Studios! And our favorite spotted personal trainers Olivia and Bart van Maanen are part of the instructors team!
Starting the spring season with the latest news of the blooming flower Gigi Hadid! We spotted this mega babe on the cover of VOGUE Germany in her full shine! The supermodel’s latest work is for May’s 2016 issue of the fashion bible! The editorial was photographed by Camilla Akrans, whose name is related to many big fashion campaigns and magazines.

The ones who follow Spotted Style since its start know and maybe have our oversized popular T-shits saying ”I only date models” which we were giving away at the beginning. Taking into account how fast we ran out of them and how much we all laughed, maybe I will make happy some of you with the fact that I am considering to start that joke again! No offence for the non-modelling part of our auditory, I am not modelling myself as well but if I have to open up my spotted diary, I can’t deny the fact that I had reasons to wear the T-shirt. Models can be quite fun and let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want a doll faced beautiful girlfriend or hot six pack boyfriend by their side?
I still have one of these I Only Date Models t-shirts and it turned into my favorite one to wear in the house, early in the morning, when my hair is messy in a bun and it’s time to drink my coffee and be creative! My roommates always make jokes that I date models, when they see me wearing it. Let’s leave the joke aside. Even though it doesn’t always say the truth about me, there are some spotted boys and girls in our spotlight today who may need that t-shirt in their closet, because they are dating some of the prettiest top Dutch models! Take a look at the spotted happy It Couples of Spotted Style! (more…)
Even she is covered with all that glam and sparkle, I couldn’t mistake that face! Daphne Groeneveld in her full shine for Zoo Magazine! The moment I saw the pictures, I got totally obsessed with them. I started going through the whole editorial and I caught myself staring at it for a while, observing Daphne’s beauty and the creativity of the amazing team behind the editorial for the magazine! Guess you will experience the same effect of Daphne’s magnetic presence in front of the camera! She has been my ultimate favorite model and I have been following her work since a long time. As an editor of Spotted Style I go through numerous editorials and pictures everyday and for me these ones, taken by David Roemer are one of Daphne’s best! I was also amazed by the whole complex work of fashion editor Joanne Blades, whose styling of the set left me totally speechless! Pay attention to the little details, while going through the editorial. Same can be said about the art on Daphne’s face by Ozzy Salvatierra and set designer Jim Gratson! Enough talk from our side from now, we guess you cannot wait to take a look at the pictures below! Miss Daphne Groeneveld in out spotlight!
