New Face: Saskia de Brauw
A beauty with brains, that’s how we would describe Dutch model Saskia de Brauw. She started modeling at the age of 16, then took a break to finish her study and now she is back! With her age, she’s 29 now, she has more to offer than just a pretty face. This girl has something to say too. And if she’s not modeling she works on her art projects.
Name: Saskia de Brauw
Birth Year: 1981
Place of Birth: a village near Amsterdam
Discovered: at the age of 16
Breakthrough: her second breakthrough happened in 2010. Saskia did a casting for Prada and became the new face or Eres (she took over Lara Stone for this job). Models.com named her (at the age of 29) as one of the New Faces.

Quote: ‘Modeling was never a dream. Yet thanks to my work as a model I could afford my study. I’d prefer to call myself a visual artist.’
Dreams of: Doing a shoot for Vogue in which she can be more of a character than a model. Saskia also dream of living in Paris.
Admires: Stella Tenant, Helena Christensen, Freja Beha and Lara Stone
