In the previous article, we introduced you to Mattia Krenza, the winner of the Elite Model Look 2015 in the Netherlands among the guys, and today we want to introduce you Anuk Theissen, the winner of the EML Netherlands 2015 among girls.
The 15-year-old beauty caught our attention as soon as we noticed her on the catwalk, and a few hours later she lit a new star in the modeling horizon. The girl shared her impressions of participating in the show and shared with us her joy from the victory. Anouk was also unable to hide her excitement from the upcoming trip to Milan, where the grand finale of the competition will be held, which will bring together beginner models from around the world.
Hello Anouk! Congratulations on your victory at the Elite Model Look Nederland 2015! We are very pleased to see you among the finalists of this incredibly popular contest! Tell us a few words about yourself, how old are you and where are you from?
Thanks! I am 15 years old and I am from Weichen, a city in the eastern part of the Netherlands. Five days a week I go to school, and in my free time I like to ride. I love shopping, and I never miss the release of new collections of my favorite brands. In addition, I am interested in the profession of make-up artist, and I often look through workshops on makeup on the Internet, trying to learn some tricks.
What led you to the casting of the Elite Model Look? Was it a dream for you to become a model, or did it all happen by accident?
My best friend’s mom told me about this wonderful contest and invited me to send her profile. I thought it was a great idea, and quickly decided to participate. To be honest, I never thought about a modeling career, but now this is the only thing I want! At first I really wanted to become an interior designer, but at the moment – modeling – everything that interests me!

What, in your opinion, is your strongest side that helped you win the competition?
I think high growth and youth are my main trump cards in this competition. The jury told me that I was incredibly photogenic. During the competition, I did not aspire to victory, I just enjoyed what was happening, and honestly, I did not expect to become a winner.
Describe your feelings when during the announcement of the winners of the Elite Model Look Netherlands 2015, did you hear your name?
The first thing I thought was: who, me ?! After a minute, I saw that all the attention of photographers was turned to me and I realized that this was not a dream. I was trembling with excitement and the only thing I could do was go out onto the podium, smiling widely, but completely bewildered, to the delight of everyone!
How would you describe the experience gained in EML? What did you learn during the whole show from beginning to end?
Firstly, I got incredible emotions that I had never experienced before. Secondly, I was lucky to be close to the leading professionals in the Dutch modeling industry. In addition, I met other members who were very friendly. We helped each other and became friends. I learned to walk the catwalk and mastered several tricks that help you stay in great shape! It’s great to work with the best photographers, makeup artists and stylists. I am also very excited before flying to Milan and can’t wait to quickly see the other girls I made friends with! I hope the week spent in Italy during the final will be unforgettable!

What is the secret of your beauty and how do you keep fit?
Everything is very simple – you need to drink a lot of water, take care of your face every morning and before bedtime, smile a lot and have a positive attitude. This will not only make you beautiful, but also extend your life!
How do you spend your free time and what else are you interested in besides modeling?
In my free time I really like being with horses, riding and combing their mane – this is very reassuring. When I’m at home, I often watch makeup lessons on YouTube. In fact, the Internet is an inexhaustible source of inspiration, which I gladly draw from it.
As the winner of Elite Model Look 2015, you have received a contract with the Elite Model agency, which opens up many opportunities for you as a model. What do you dream about and how do you see your future from now on?
My biggest dream is to be on the cover of Vogue. Now, I hope to enjoy participating in the finals to be held in Milan and demonstrate all my professional skills there. After that, I expect to start working as a model, which is stipulated by my contract.
We are sure that Anuk will succeed no matter what place she takes in the finals of the global competition among novice models. One way or another, this young girl expects success and extremely positive changes in her life.
