Dutch models are doing well at this moment. Out of the ten new faces selected three were Dutch. These girls are proclaimed to become the new Doutzen Kroes and Lara Stone.

Dutch 19-year-old model Lisanne de Jong did not make it to that top ten, but is actually just as successful as the other girls. She walked shows for Balenciaga and Hervé Leger, she opened the Miu Miu and Max Azria show and in Milan she walked exclusively for Prada. In that Prada show six Dutch Models walked the runway.

Lisanne de Jong proved she’s got more than a pretty face and a good walk; she can pose in front of the camera as well. She is the new face in the Balenciaga and Celine campaign and was photographed in all the new Burberry Prorsum and Missoni clothes for the lookbooks of those brands.

The title of topmodel is getting close…
