Imaan Hammam from CODE Management in Bad Girls Club


CODE Management’s top model Imaan Hammam is one of the bad girls from the newest ID Magazine issue named”Rising up”. 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. The stylist Ludivine Poiblanc who worked with the creative team for the editorial added a heavy touch to the looks of the models with details as chain chokers, leather pieces and biker jackets. Dedicated to fashion and young culture, the British magazine reminds us that we”ll always have the biker look, which doesn’t seem to be going out of trend and we loved this smokey version of it, photographed by Daniel Jackson.

Spotted It Couples! #IonlyDateModels


Vera van Erp from Code Management and Gijs Bouwens

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…)

Magnetic Daphne Groeneveld spotted for Zoo Magazine


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!
