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…)

Lara Roozemond from Touche Models on Acting

Hi, Lara! Welcome back to our spotlight! Today we have new reason to spot you and we want to let our and your followers to know about it!Can you share more about your new study?
I am currently studying at FAAAM – Film actors academy Amsterdam. It is a two years
study, four evenings in the week. I am combining this study with another course at Kemna Casting called: De Jaargang. This is a one year course every Monday.
When did u start acting and How did you become so passionate about it?
The first movie I played in is called Erwtje, written and directed by Sylvia Holstijn. I was very young but already loved acting then. After that I played in several musicals and theatre performances. When I started modeling I got the chance to play in some commercials and music videos. This went really well and so I started following acting courses in Amsterdam. My passion for acting grew into something I wanted to do every day! When I was working abroad for a longer period, I missed the trainings and decided that I
should focus more on acting. Therefore, I auditioned for Faaam and De Jaargang.
What is the last movie you saw?
I watched Good Will Hunting again on Netflix last night.

Hi, Daphne! Can you introduce yourself to our Spotted Style followers?
Hi! I’m Daphne Kooy, I’m 18 (almost 19) years and I’ve been modeling for a while now. Also I have my own blog were I write about modeling, food and lifestyle.
How long ago did you start modelling and did it change your life in some way?
I started modeling when I was 15, so almost 4 years now. It really changed my life (in a good way)! I started eating a lot healthier and started working more often. Now its just a way of life and with or without modeling I will always keep living a healthy lifestyle for sure.
Have you travelled a lot because of work? What was the destination of your last trip?
Yes! I traveled a lot the past year! My last destination was Barcelona. I’m in love with that city!
What does it take to be a successful in the modelling industry and what is your advice for the newcomers?
I think it’s important that you are confident but stay true to yourself. Never starve yourself but just live healthy, take every chance you get and show your real personality. Its not only about looks but also about your personality. Just be healthy, happy and work hard. That’s all you can do. And always remember that it’s not personal if a client won’t book you. Maybe your just not the type they’re searching for.

You have an amazing personal blog! We follow it and we love it! Do you want to tell more about it for the people who don’t know yet about it?
Thankyou! That’s so nice to hear! I Have my own blog: Where I write about my life as a model, food, health and more. I love baking healthy pies and cakes and making new recipes. I want to show people that healthy food can be delicious and fun! You don’t have to starve yourself to lose weight and I want people to know that! You can live healthy and still enjoy good food! I also like to show you guys some things about my personal life and my experiences with modeling and fashion.
