Sanne Vloet is tak­ing the mod­el­ling world by storm as she walks the run­ways for top fash­ion houses around the globe. A for­mer gym­nast, Sanne’s big break in the fash­ion industry ar­rived in style when she strut­ted her way in the Os­car de la Renta show at New York Fash­ion Week in 2014. What fol­lowed were the run­ways of emi­nent and dis­tin­guished de­sign­ers such as Chanel, Ver­sace, Gior­gio Ar­mani, Bal­main, Dolce & Gab­bana, among oth­ers, and cam­paigns for Gior­gio Ar­mani, Ralph Lau­ren, and Michael Kors.

She walked her first Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret Fash­ion Show in 2015 and made her sec­ond and third ap­pear­ances in the 2016 and 2017 shows. Her blonde hair, blue eyes, and stat­uesque beauty has made her a pop­u­lar face in in­ter­na­tional mag­a­zine cov­ers and in­side pages. This Dutch model cur­rently re­sides in New York. With her suit­case, scarf, and pen­chant for ex­plor­ing, the en­tire world is her stage.

FAVOURITE CITY

Am­s­ter­dam. It’s in my home coun­try, and I love it. It is small and easy to get around in. There is a cer­tain chilled am­bi­ence which I also en­joy. The canals, the bikes… it just has that in­de­scrib­able charm.

FAVOURITE COUN­TRY TO VISIT

I love to visit In­done­sia, Bali es­pe­cially. Ev­ery­thing there is sim­ply amaz­ing and there’s some­thing to do for ev­ery­one — raft­ing, yoga, hik­ing, surf­ing, or just hang­ing out on the beau­ti­ful beaches. The food is great as well!

FAVOURITE HO­TELS

Shangri-la Ho­tels all over the world. You know what to ex­pect and

the ser­vice is al­ways ex­cel­lent. The last one I stayed in was in Bo­ra­cay, Philip­pines. The Kak­slaut­ta­nen Arc­tic Re­sort in Fin­land was also very spe­cial. It’s not ev­ery day you get to sleep in an igloo in the snow.

RES­TAU­RANTS

When I travel, I al­ways try to eat the lo­cal food, and the best way to dis­cover this is on the streets!

A QUICK WEEK­END RE­TREAT

Tu­lum, Mex­ico. It’s not far from the US and of­fers so many well­ness and re­treat ho­tels. Their fresh seafood and beaches are amaz­ing as well.

RED-EYE OR DAY­TIME FLIGHT?

I can sleep eas­ily on flights and I don’t like to waste time so I pre­fer red-eye flights!

MUST-HAVE WHEN TRAV­EL­LING

I al­ways travel with a scarf be­cause airplanes can be very cold! In warm coun­tries, you also need to cover a lit­tle bit some­times so it comes in handy too. My Blue­tooth air­pods are a sta­ple as well for lis­ten­ing to mu­sic or tak­ing a phone call on the road.

TRAVEL TIPS

Bring face­masks on long flights.

It’s es­sen­tial to take care of your­self while trav­el­ling be­cause you want to ar­rive fresh at your des­ti­na­tion. An­other one is to pack ev­ery­thing in lit­tle bags in your suit­case to keep your items or­gan­ised.
