Tell us about an ordinary day in your life?
When I don’t have to work I still wake up early to walk my dog. After that I go to the gym for a class or I do workouts on my own. I am lucky my gym is super new with new facilities, so after the workout I go to the sauna and steambath. It’s so nice to relax after a good workout! To recover from the workout I make a healthy lunch. In the afternoon I go to the park with my dog, and in the evening I am meeting my friends for dinner. We go to a nice place for good food and drinks.
How and when did your modeling career begin?
I actually started when I was 4 years old, modeling for all the big kids' brands at that time. I worked almost every Wednesday afternoon and Saturday - those were my only free spots as I needed to go to school the rest of the week. I stopped when I was 12 years old as my parents told me I needed to focus on high school and after school I could decide what I wanted to do with my life.
When I was 18, I got my degree and I got scouted by by a tv program in the Netherlands called “Model in 1 day” during a shopping day with my mom. I actually won the program and got a contract with Ulla Models Amsterdam. From that point, I started working as a fulltime model and still am to this day!

How would you define your style?
Classy, feminine, elegant and cool.
From your experience, what are the best and worst parts of being a model?
Best part for sure is the traveling and shooting on the most beautiful locations! I love to discover new places and love meeting new people to work with.
Worst part is being away from your family and friends for a long time. Sometimes you miss birthdays and special occasions. Also the call times are most of the time super early and traveling can be exhausting, especially when there is a time difference. But I will never complain, it’s worth it!
Do you have any advice for aspiring young models?
Please stay close to yourself. Don’t make yourself feel insecure or tell anyone you are not good or beautiful enough. You are unique and that’s your power!
Robin wears the St. Barths - Champagne.
You have been a loyal CC ambassador for quite some years now. Tell us about your favorite pair of Cloos, and why you like the brand.
That’s a hard question as I have many favorites! The three pairs of sunglasses I wear the most are the Passable - Champagne, the St. Barths - Espresso and the Gouverneur - Noire. I love the brand as it’s timeless and classy. You can wear the glasses with every outfit and the quality is amazing!
