She is only 19 years old and already dutch beauty Romee Strijd has achieved her dream, being at the top of the fashion-world. She already worked for brands such as Céline H&M and Louis Vuitton. Last year the blonde model was seen in Vogue and walked in the iconic Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. This year she takes over the wings of her compatriot and role model Doutzen Kroes as a Victoria’s Secret Angel. On Dutch television, Romee talked about her success.
“I always looked at the show and it has always inspired me to see Doutzen and the other girls on the catwalk. Actually it was my girls dream since childhood. ” Romee said. She told the presenter of the television show that she was discovered by model management Wilma Wakker when she was shopping in the PC Hoofd Street in Amsterdam. “On my thirteenth when I was still in school, I did mainly testshoots in the Netherlands. When I moved to New York my agency told me that I could get a casting for Victoria’s Secret at any time. I then started fanatical to work out.”
In the near future Romee flies all over the world, keeping her body in top condition with a few hours of sports every day and healthy eating. The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will take place in december this year.
