TOP MODEL SECRETS: DAPHNE GROENEVELD

26 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT DAPHNE GROENEVELD

She's a hiker, professional packer and has a resume other 21-year-olds can only dream of. We got the Dutch beauty to spill her secrets.

She is only 21. But despite being barely legal, she is far from a fresh face in the industry. The Dutch stunner was discovered when she was still in junior high, more specifically when she was 14 and out shopping with her mum in Amsterdam. An agent approached the two in a department store, arranged a meeting with Daphne, took test shots – and then the career of one of the world's most in-demand models started.

While her peers were still playing in the schoolyard or watchingHannah Montana, Daphne was walking high-end shows in Milan and shooting editorials for trending magazines. All while keeping her schoolwork in check.

Two years after being discovered, she was featured on the cover of the world's perhaps most prestigious fashion magazine – Vogue Paris – together with the legendary designer Tom Ford. Six years afterwards, she still considers it to be her proudest career moment.

Over the years, the model with the extraordinary features has evolved to become one of the most successful in the industry. When we had the H&M favourite in the photo studio, we asked her to reveal some of her model secrets. Here they are.
