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.

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.
