Bare Essentials

Top model Doutzen Kroes helps British Vogue readers escape the Winter blues with a sun-kissed editorial for the publication's January 2013 issue. Kroes poses for photographer Josh Olins perched on the rocky outcrops and in the natural wilderness of the Greek island Halikidiki, decked out in resort wear and bathing suits that only she would dare to pull off. At age 27, Kroes looks to be in the prime of her modelling career with a smattering of recent editorial appearances in Allure, Love, V Magazine, Harper's Bazaar and multiple international editions of Vogue. Kroes' strong, athletic frame and glowing healthy looks are in keeping with Vogue's recent endorsement of the Health Initiative Pact which seeks to promote healthy body image and discourages the use of models under the age of 16 within its pages. I applaud the fashion industry's current trend towards the use of models approaching their 30s who like Kroes display a womanly confidence, versatility, and relatability that every day women are able to identify with.
