Romee Strijd was born in July of 1995 in Zoetermeer, a once tiny town in South Holland of Netherlands that has now grown to more than 123 thousand residents. She was discovered around the age of 14 in Amsterdam.
In 2011, Romee signed with DNA Model Management, with whom she is still currently signed. Since then, she has walked and modeled for big brands, the likes of Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein and Burberry. She has also done advertising with Alexander McQueen, Donna Karan and a few other high-end fashion brands. Romee has appeared in a number of magazines, including Elle, Harper's Bazaar and the cover of Vogue Netherlands. She is also currently signed with Viva Model Management, Why Not Model Agency and Wilma Wakker Management.
By 2014, she was chosen as a runway model in the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. By the start of 2015, she was chosen as one of the lingerie line's newest Angel additions. People in her country of Netherlands always looked up to Doutzen Kroes, as she is a fellow Dutch Victoria's Secret model. Working out and fitness are a big part of Romee's life, so it makes sense that she's been a part of Victoria's Secret "The Angel Workout" segment with Style.com
Romee currently lives in New York and dates Laurens van Leeuwen, co-founder of Brixer.
