Doutzen Kroes may not have made Forbes‘s annual list of highest earning models last week (about which we are still surprised), but this month she has earned a different distinction.
With September being the biggest-selling issue for fashion magazines, a cover spot for any model is a pretty big deal. This year, Kroes managed to land not one, but four Vogue covers for this very prestigious month. Talk about a cover coup!
Recently, top models like Sasha Pivovarova, Karlie Kloss, and Miranda Kerr have impressed us by landing two September Vogue covers in one year, but it looks like Kroes is in a league all her own in 2013 with covers for Italy, Spain, China, and the Netherlands. The covers were shot by Steven Meisel, Tom Munro, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, and Paul Bellaart, respectively.
Even though covers may not be moneymaking gigs for models, they’re still a pretty accurate barometer of who is at the top of their game. With this month’s avalanche of covers for Kroes, it brings her 2013 Vogue cover total to eight, already one ahead of last year’s Vogue cover queen, Arizona Muse. And while she may not have placed on the Forbes list, maybe she’ll make another by the end of the year.
