Namara van Kleeff (19, VDM Model Management) was scouted only seven months ago while shopping in Amsterdam. A few months later she walked her very first shows during Couture Week in Paris: Chanel, Valentino and Giambattista Valli. “The Chanel show was so special. Even the catering backstage was spectacular.” She left her hometown Zoetermeer and het cat Muffin for Sydney, where she is currently residing for modeling work.
What’s your secret talent? I taught myself how to draw simply by practicing a lot. Unfortunately I’m pretty bad at finishing my drawings. I usually draw rappers, like Kendrick Lamar, because I love hiphop!
Who would you like to meet most? I love cooking very much and my boyfriend and I never miss an episode of MasterChef, so I would love to meet a chef. I wouldn’t mind getting some cooking lessons!
What’s the best gift you ever received? A trip to the United States, gifted by my parents. I visited my uncle and aunt who live on a big ranch in Texas. I didn’t even do anything special – just some shopping and relaxing – but it was great to be there.
Who’s the most handsome man on earth? Channing Tatum. He is just too good looking.
What’s your favorite emoji? I love the pink flower, I use it when a friend posts a pretty picture of herself. I also use the little turd a lot, whenever I’m in a funny mood.
What’s the last book you’ve read? 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene. It’s a psychological book about power. I had heard a lot about it and I always find it interesting to learn about how people think.
What’s your favorite cheat food? Chocolate, for sure! I don’t even mind which kind. I could eat it every day, but I’d better not.
What’s your favorite TV show? Keeping Up With The Kardashians. I only watch it when I am bored, because it’s obviously really about nothing.
