Doutzen Kroes: I have friends in fashion capitals
Doutzen Kroes loves that she knows a fellow model in every "fashion country".
The blonde beauty hails from the Netherlands and made her mark on the fashion world through her work with Victoria's Secret.
She hung up her Angel wings at the end of last year, although the news wasn't confirmed until February when Karlie Kloss also flew the nest.
"Victoria’s Secret gave me a lot, but I had to move on and do different things. But I do think about the girls right now, because I know the prep that they’re going through," Doutzen told British Vogue.
"Adriana [Lima], Candice [Swanepoel], Karlie, Joan [Smalls] – I don’t want to leave anyone out! We built amazing relationships. What’s so great is that there is always someone in the world that I know. Every fashion country I go to, there is someone there that I can spend time with.”
Since quitting Victoria's Secret, work has been as busy as ever for the 30-year-old. She was named as the face of Mercedes-Benz, and earlier this month she was in Germany for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin.
Doutzen is also a mother to two young tots, son Phyllon and daughter Myllena, with husband Sunnery James.
"We compare diaries a lot and count how many days that we are going to be apart. I definitely plan more, but then there are, of course, some things that you can’t plan," she explained.
Looking ahead to the future Doutzen would like to launch her own fashion line, but brushes the idea off as a fantasy right now.
