Another Angel takes flight! Doutzen Kroes has left Victoria’s Secret. Ed Razek confirmed the news following fellow Angel Karlie Kloss’ departure on Thursday, Feb. 19.
“After I posted the news about @karliekloss leaving VS I got a number of texts asking me why I hadn’t said anything about @doutzen leaving at the end of last year. Fair question. The simple answer is I should have,” Razek wrote on his Instagram on Friday., Feb. 20, explaining the supermodel quietly departed months ago. “Doutzen had a lucrative opportunity in Europe and it would have conflicted with her VS obligations. So, at her agency’s request, we released her from contract. There was no conflict. No animosity. None of the nonsense I’ve read on Instagram. She had a great business opportunity, and I wanted to be fair to someone I adore and respect. That’s all. I honestly believe Doutzen is one of the most stunningly beautiful people in the world. And I always will. I have told her that many times. Now you know.”
Kroes first started modeling for the brand in 2004 but was crowned an Angel in 2008.
The Dutch stunner, who is mom to daughter Myllena and son Phyllon, also has contracts with L’Oreal Paris, Calvin Klein, Tiffany & Co., and Dolce & Gabbana, among others.
Kloss, for her part, parted ways with the brand due to her “myriad” of other commitments.
