Daphne Groeneveld is one of the world’s top models at only 17 years old. Of Dutch decent, the wide-eyed beauty was discovered while out shopping with her mom in Amsterdam when she was approached by an agent. After two short years of modeling she has already appeared on the cover of Vogue Paris with Tom Ford and strut the catwalk for Chanel, Dior Haute Couture and Valentino. Her pretty pout and large features had photographers and designers falling over themselves to book the young model.
She snagged a Miu Miu Eyewear campaign in 2010, where she got dance lessons for the commercial by pop legend Madonna. This year she is the face of Calvin Klein’s Sheer Beauty Fragrance and Jill Stuart’s S/S 2012 collection. Other magazine covers include i-D Magazine, Self Service, Numero, Vogue Japan, V and LOVE.
She accomplished all of this while finishing high school, even boasting about studying for her exams while flying back and forth to Milan for editorial shoots.
