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.
