Courtesy of Victoria’s Secret

There’s a new Angel in town. Victoria’s Secret has revealed to PEOPLE that model Doutzen Kroes is the newest Victoria’s Secret Angel, joining the likes of Heidi Klum and Adriana Lima, as well as past angels like Gisele Bundchen and Tyra Banks. Born in Oostermeer in the Netherlands, 23-year-old Kroes scored a modeling contract after she sent her photo to an agency hoping to earn enough cash to buy more fashion magazines. Soon the 5’10” stunner was filling their pages, gracing ads for everyone from Calvin Klein to Dolce & Gabbana. Her first official Victoria’s Secret campaign, Supermodel Obsessions, launches today in N.Y.C. Tell us: What do you think of Victoria’s Secret’s choice?

She looks beautiful like all the rest of the angels. VC cant seem to disappoint with their models.

Julianna on

Doutzen is so beautiful, and she looks stunning in this picture. She’s one of my favorite models and deserved to become an angel way earlier!

Linds on

A pretty obvious choice..

S. Nielsen on

Seriously People magazine. Being born in the Netherlands would make her Dutch not Danish. No wonder other countries make fun of our Geography knowledge…”People” needs to retake 5th grade.

Jennifer on

Uh…S. Nielsen…where on there did they call her Danish?

T on

Uh…Jennifer…..the first word on the first page.

Suzy Q on

“Danish stunner…” first words in the article started on previous page. S. Neilsen is correct! And with the name “Neilsen” s/he most likely knows what s/he’s talking about–it is a common Scandinavian name.

Jacob on

In my opinion is the most beautiful angel karolina kurkova!! I love her typical american smile… Face of america…

Courtney on

They always have the prettiest models…but she’s nothing we havent seen before.

Tiffany on

It amazes me when these models say that they sent their pictures to an agency because their family told them to or to buy something. You are a model and you make you money off your looks, don’t try and be modest.

angelina on

Thank goodness, now maybe I dont have to see Mirand Kerr so much. move one VS!! they needed someone else. I was getting tired of seeing Miranda!!

stephanie on

She looks like Denise Richards- lol

Rikki on

She is fantastic. I love her shoot for Vogue in the June 2007 issue. Pure art.

wow!!!!! she is uber sexy!!!

paris on

she really looks like a angel

she’s amazing!!! and really sweet

Prince on

Doutzen is gorgeous! One of the most beautiful women in the world. She really looks like an angel.

Ronnie on

To be honest…I am kind of disappointed. I have always associated Doutzen with artistic, sophisticated, high-end fashion and magazine work. I think she is way too good for VS! Oh, well… a girl’s got to eat I suppose (oh, the irony)

Jennifer on

S. Nielsen- I wasn’t saying it to be rude, just trying to find it on the page. Didn’t mean to get other people all defensive.

On the page I am on, nowhere does it say Danish. We must have gotten to the article different ways.

Kim on

She looks like Denise Richards in that picture.

Britney on

Omg she is THE Model sensation of the moment. She is the most beautiful i have ever seen. She is a bit different then the other angels cause Doutze is in my eyes a bit more classy.

cindy on

She has been in the VS catalogs for a while now.. she is not new…

Quynh on

She has played a role in past shows. I think it was the show before the last one, with Justin Timberlake, she wore the cutest outfit from the PINK line, with a graduation cap…

Lucy on

she sure is beautiful but ugh they need a new look like seriously =]

Adriana on

Doutzen’s the right choice. VS disappointed me by choosing Marisa Miller and Miranda Kerr as VS angels last year.

Anna on

Yes!!!! Doutzen is one of my favourite models. She is lovely, and has a good head on her shoulders. She’s perfect!

Erock on

I absolutely luuurv Doutzen Kroes, but I really do see her as more of a ‘fashion’ model; than I really do a curvy VC girl.

Susan on

Beautiful girl, she and Ale Ambrosia will be good together, maybe the angels this year
I agree with the disappointment of choosing Marisa Miller as an angel, since she’s simply not a pretty girl at all in the face

Traci on

I’m with you Jennifer – nowhere on my page does it say she’s Danish. She is gorgeous though!

Suzy Q on

If you had approached the article from the “NEWS” tab/page, it had a sentence or two lead-in to the article that began with “Danish stunner….” If you approached the article from the “STYLE” tab/page, it does not. I don’t think “T” or I was being “defensive” by confirming that what S. Neilsen had said was true.

BTW, Doutzen is stunning AND she has the biggest hands I have ever seen on a female in my life! :)

Casey on

She looks absolutely gorgeous and what a beautiful pose this is. I admire all of those girls’ beauty and their hair makes me envious! Many are simply too thin but I understand that it is what it is. I pray she goes far and away from drugs and drinking. It sickens me to hear of one committing suicide or dying because of exhaustion and not taking care of themselves. May God Be With You!! You will go far!!

Casey on

Just watch out for Charlie Sheen…you don’t want to be his next wife with baby(ies)…I looked at your website and I agree, you should have become an VS Angel earlier than now. Stay focused and enjoy!

Anna on

Wow, she is really beautiful, just like the rest of Victoria’s Secret models. I just wish I could pronounce her name!

kate on

I think she looks exactly like every other VC model. She’s beautiful yes, but aren’t there like 3 of her already working for VC?

minnie on

perfect choice VS! she is curvy, healthy, and beautiful. she is one of my favorite models.

ashley on

are there any american vs models??

Andie on

She looks just like Denise Richards

Nickey on

She looks better then Denise Richards…

Anna on

to the other Anna (on pg. 4): her name is pronounced DOUBT-zin
:)

LOURDES on

DANISH, DUTCH, WHO CARES SHE IS A PERSON AND SHE IS BEAUTIFUL!

Nicole on

She is perfect looking, but, why do all of the VS models, seem to look the same? They all have the same hair, same color, same skin tone…they are all very beautiful, but, beauty does not just come with blonde or brown hair and tan skin on a tall, thin frame. Where are your red haired models and paler skin? What are you saying to society, People Magazine? I recognize that red haired people only make up about 6% of the worlds’s population, and, it is this 6%,that you obviously do not represent. I only recall one (1) VS model, in the past, that has had red hair, and that was Angie Everhart. That was a good bit of time ago. All your models are beautiful, but, selection needs to be more diverse.

Tina on

She is absolutely gorgeous. She reminds me of a very young Gisele . .as we all know to be a stunning beauty. She is definitely a keeper.

jessica on

she looks like denise richards

DD on

Big Deal…

Emilie on

I think Doutzen is a great choice for a new Victoria’s Secret Angel. She’s got the whole package with her stunning face and amazing body. Definitely a “good investment” for Victoria’s Secret.

Oh and yes she is from Holland meaning she is dutch, not danish. Danish people are from Denmark.

Marije on

As a Dutch girl myself I am so proud of Doutzen!
She is so beautiful and a real Dutch girl. There probably isn’t one girl in The Netherlands who wouldn’t wanna look like her.
Doutzen gefeliciteerd met je contract!!

Papa Bear on

Can’t wait to see her strut her stuff on the catwalk with the other Victoria’s Secret angels. Yup, VC really knows where to get their angels. They don’t disappoint. She could give the other supermodels a run for their money.

AMS on

I love Victoria’s Secret’s choices in models. They are beautiful women who look healthy!

Victoria on

Well, Doutzen is something we Dutch people are very proud of. She is very very down to earth and spends a lot of time, money and energy on charity! She is very bright and really nice.
I agree she looks very Dutch (blond, tall, blue eyes), but it’s nice to see something else than all those Brazilian models you see lately. I’m proud of her as a Dutchie and European :-)

Jennifer on

You go girl!

Super tof voor je Doutzen, succes!

K. Skovby on

Being raised in Denmark myself I can tell you with absolute certainty that this model is NOT Danish! I agree with S. Nielsen completely that People magazine needs to learn their geography. While the Netherlands may be a part of Scandinavia (which is also made up of several other countries) it is not Denmark.

rebecca on

shes gorgg
just like all the the other angels

Daisy on

I like her…..she is pretty and I think she will make a great angel…..My favorite is still Alessandra Ambrosio but she will also do great!

Olga on

She’s amazing! I love all ad campaigns she’s done.

very pretty…good choice

Merel on

I can only say: FINALLY!
Doutzen is the best out there and the most beautiful. I still don’t get it why they didn’t chose her before.

Annie on

KSkovby looks like you might want to brush up on your geography as well, as the Netherlands is NOT a part of Scandinavia!

Lala on

Good for her. She’ll get a lot more exposure to the general public now that she’s an Angel and not just in the catalogues and online, and her fame and popularity will likely rocket upwards.

However, I think she is generic. Her face isn’t striking, but she’s pretty none the less.

Marjanne on

Doutzen is next to a beautiful model a very lovely person who is in the Netherlands also known for her being so down to earth. I think in America it’s called ‘the girl next door’

And Yes, she is dutch ;-)
People Magazine hardly makes mistakes so i am in no way offended, but as S. Nielsen says; Americans are in Europe also known for their bad geography knowledge..

Marina on

She is really hot and sexy – just what VS needs I think. but I can agree she is similar to other models of VS… when does VS start to search for models in Russia???!!!ahaha
IT is worth doing I think=)

Jen on

Jacob you do realize that Karolina was born in Děčín, Czechoslovakia.
