The Netherlands are quite famous for their topmodels. Many say that a beauty queen is not a model at all, but many queens have shown that they can be successful in the modeling industry. Some are even modeling for large fashion houses. Even in 1977…
Caroline Hooft, a 16 year old schoolgirl from Utrecht, who during our Miss Holland – Miss Prive pageant, got the young title, got to know the “Big Work”
In Paris, famous fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent specially chose two of his favorite creations for coming winter, for her to show.
Caroline Hooft, a somewhat shy schoolgirl from Utrecht, who represented our country at Miss (red: Young) International in Tokio, awaits a sunny future.
She mentioned that she would like to see a real French fashion house.
And probably it will not be only once, because French fashion photographer Gunnar Larsen, who photographed Caroline in two favorite creations from famous couturier Yves Saint Laurent, immediately offered her a contract.
Gunnar found that she could well be an international top model like Laura Hutton and Margeaux Hemmingway.
Caroline Hooft won the title of Miss Young Holland 1977 during the finals of Miss Holland – Miss Prive 1977, where she placed 2nd runner up. She would represent The Netherlands at Miss Young International 1977, Miss Europe 1977/1978 and Miss Young Intercontinental 1978, where she became a semi finalist.
