With her striking looks, it’s no wonder Anniek Kortleve from Select has caught the eye of Nicolas Ghesquiere. We have a quick chat with the flame haired beauty.

WONDERLUST:  Anniek Kortleve

How did you become a model?

I was scouted on the street whilst Christmas shopping with my mum. I waited until I had finished high school before starting.

What were you doing before modelling?

In high school. I had planned to take a break, try modelling and then go to uni and maybe study Psychology.

What do you like to do when you’re not modelling?

When I’m travelling on modelling jobs I love to go sight seeing and explore the city I’m in. I’m also doing a creative writing course so I enjoy writing stories. It’s just something I do for fun and as it’s an online course it’s perfect when I’m travelling.

What’s your favourite film??

I don’t like scary movies. I enjoy happy ones like Little Miss Sunshine. Into The Wild is also a great film.

What books do you enjoy reading?

Fiction. I mainly read Dutch books.

What shows did you walk in last season?

I was on worldwide exclusive to Balenciaga last season. It was so much fun and my first Fall fashion week. The season before I did shows in New York, walking for a lot of new up-and-coming designers.

Where has been your favourite place you’ve travelled?

I really like going to Australia.

Do you have a particular photographer you would like to work with?

Yes, I would love to work with Peter Lindbergh.

What’s been your favourite fashion moment so far?

I really like working with Josh Olins whom I shot an upcoming campaign with.

What would you like to do in the future?

I want to model for a few more years and then go back to school in Amsterdam.

If you had hidden treasure where would you bury it?

My parents have a little garden house, I think I would bury it there.
