Milou Groenewoud (23, iD Model Management & Ulla Models) has been turning model scouts down since she was 15 years old. But after she got her bachelors degree in Psychology last year, she got curious and visited The Model Convention. The result? A record breaking 11 callbacks. Only a year into her modeling career now, she’s already an Acne Studios favorite (she did their show, the campaign and the Pre-Fall lookbook). You might also recognize her from appearing on the Zara website. Her most memorable shoot so far was for the Italian magazine Amica in Sardinia, where she got to ride a horse on the beach.
Who’s the most handsome man on earth? My boyfriend Job of course! We met on Tinder. I liked his profile because of his weird pictures. On one of them he was eating French fries in a really unflattering way, but he still looked good. I thought that was pretty cool.
What’s your favorite Instagram account to follow? @rubythetraildog. It’s a little dog who can run very, very, very fast. It’s just so funny!
What’s your best recipe? That must be a breakfast recipe, because that’s my favorite meal of the day. I love making mug cakes, healthy cakes you only have to put in the microwave for 2 minutes. When I was a student I ate way too much and often drank one too many beers, so now I try to eat healthy. But once every two weeks I allow myself to go completely crazy and eat everything I want. Mc Donald’s, brownies, chocolate and lots of Oreos.
What’s your favorite song to dance to? Bubble Butt by Major Lazer. I know it’s kind of trashy, but it just makes me really happy.
You spend a lot of time in Paris, what’s your favorite place there? Le Marais, because of all the vintage shops. Free’P’Star is my favorite store, it’s the cheapest one I know. The best thing I ever bought there is a fake fur Miss Sixty jacket.
What’s your favorite emoji? The really big smile! I always send it to my boyfriend. When I’m happy happy happy to come home!
You’re from Friesland, what’s your favorite thing to say in the Frisian language? ‘Ferdomme!‘ which means damnit. It’s almost the same in Dutch, but in Friesland we pronounce it really hard, it allows you to put more frustration into it.
Do you have any pets? Yes, I have 2 guinea pigs: Dizzy & Ozzy.
