Doutzen Kroes: (About wearing lingerie on Victoria's Secret Fashion Show) I love feeling so sexy and I love to be on this runway, but you're nervous because it's lingerie and it's on TV; there are so many people seeing you live, it's not like a picture when there is Photoshop after.
Doutzen Kroes: (Talking about her first fashion statement) I used to put my socks over my jeans and wear a headband with a ponytail! I absolutely wouldn't wear any dresses, especially not pink- I didn't want to be a girly girl! I was probably 7 or 8 then…Looking back, it's funny, but my mom really didn't like it and made me leave the house with my socks underneath my jeans! Halfway to school on my bike I stopped and did it my way again. Same way with the hair!
Doutzen Kroes: For other fashion shows you can be skinny, but for Victoria's Secret, you need definition.
