model monday

Daphne Groeneveld is a gorgeous mix of teenage dreams and catwalk pin-ups; she’s a baby Bardot with pillowy-pink lips, swimming pool eyes and long, long blonde bombshell hair. Born on Christmas Eve in Never Never Land (we think she confused it with The Netherlands) Daphne started young and has stayed a teenager forever! At 15, she was getting dance lessons from Madonna for a Miu Miu campaign and showing up Tom Ford on the cover of Vogue Paris, was hot-stepping it down the runways of Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Prada by 16, at 17 she had Calvin Klein, Cavalli and Louis Vuitton campaigns under her belt and now she’s 18, she’s signed to Select and is a pin-up poster girl for Dior Addict. You’ll find her second star to the right and straight on ‘til morning!

What do you think you would be doing if you weren’t a model?
I would probably go to hotel school, so I could run my own hotel one day.
What do you do for fun when you’re not working?
I love hanging out with my friends and seeing my boyfriend and family as much as possible.
What’s the most rebellious thing you’ve ever done?
I've never really been that rebellious, I've always been scared that people would notice. As a kid, the most rebellious thing I did was ring doorbells and run away. Once I stole some candy from the candy store, I felt like a rebel when I was doing it but I felt really bad afterwards and had to go back to the shop confess and pay! 
What was the last dream you had?
I was lost in a beautiful place which turned into a horror scene with lot's of people following me. It sounds stupid but I woke up pretty scared. 
What is your favourite TV program?
I don't watch a lot of television anymore. I love real life soaps, but I prefer to go to the cinema with my boyfriend.
What was the last film that made you cry? 
I've seen Titanic a lot, but I watched it again yesterday, and of course I cried when the ship sank. I love that movie!
When do you feel your sexiest?
When I wake up and have had a good workout, dress nicely and start the day nice and fresh. That's when I feel at my most confident and sexiest. 
What would your dream date be?
Haha, my dream date would be pretty clichéd! I'd have dinner on the beach when the sun was setting and then walk along the beach by night. In my opinion it cannot get more romantic than that.
What’s your first thought when you look in the mirror?
Good morning!
Where is your favourite place in the world? 
Italy, I love the weather, the people and beautiful cities like Rome and Florence.
Who are your best friends in the fashion industry and what are they like? 
I get on with lots of girls whenever we get a chance to see each other and the Dutch crew are all pretty close. We see each other at home as well. 
Where do you see yourself in five years time? 
Still modeling and I would love to act one day, who knows, a girl can dream right!
