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?

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

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

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! :)

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!!

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?
