Most young girls who dream about becoming a model, have the dream of eventually becoming a Victoria's Secret Angel, which is one of the top modelling positions in the World. One such Victoria's Secret Angel is Doutzen Kroes and she has opened up about how she managed to get her Angel wings.
During an interview with PR.com, Kroes revealed, "I definitely fell into this position. I consider myself so lucky having a L’Oreal contract and a Victoria’s Secret contract, and doing all of these big things around it. It just happened. I went to an agency in Holland and they sent me to New York."
She added, "I had lots of troubles with being homesick, but I went for it. Then I went to some castings for Victoria’s Secret and I worked for them, and then they wanted me to try out as an Angel. I had no idea when I was in Holland what Victoria’s Secret was."
Doutzen Kroes was born in Holland in 1985 and last year, at the age of 27, Doutzen Kroes came fifth on the Forbes top earning models list, where she was estimated to have earned around $6.9m in one year. Proof that hard work and dedication certainly does pay off.
