Doutzen has been Vogue’s international go-to-girl. She also poses in a hot swimsuit spread for photographer Terry Anderson in the the magazine’s Russian edition. The swimsuits by Agent Provocateur, Burberry and Jil Sander feature bright colors and oversize accessories.

Anderson also photographed Kroes for Vogue’s U.S. edition.

Kroe’s Dutch agency sent her to New York after being cast a few times by Victoria’s Secret. The lingerie company embraced her from the get-go and asked her to try out for a spot as a regular “Angel.” She became an regular model for the brand in 2008 and has walked in its televised fashion show every year since 2005.

Last November, she made her film debut in Reinout Oerlemans’ “Nova Zembla,” the first Dutch 3-D movie. Kroes has been taking acting classes in New York and hopes to transition to an acting career.

Last year, she also gave birth to a son, Phyllon Joy Gorré, with Dutch DJ Sunnery James, whom she married in 2010.

She had no trouble springing back to her model weight. Just check out her photos.
