Victoria's Secret supermodel Doutzen Kroes accepted Sunnery James as her life partner in a small wedding ceremony on the first weekend of November, 2010. The ceremony was a small one, comprising of some family members and few of the closest friends. The marriage ceremony took place in the small Dutch village of Eastermar, the hometown of Doutzen Kroes.
One early fashion photo-shoot assignment involved her being sawed in half by a magician. Using the then-new "Impossible Sawing" version of the famous illusion, she was apparently divided in two at the waist by a circular saw and her halves separated without any boxes or other coverings over her body. Although not normally performed using non-professional assistants, this version of the illusion was especially selected as the lack of coverings over the assistant allowed a clear view of the fashions she was modeling.
Doutzen Kroes is a Dutch model best known for her appearances for the lingerie shop Victoria's Secret. Blonde and blue-eyed with just a hint of Teutonic princess, she has appeared on the covers of Vogue, Elle, and W magazines, among many others. Vogue.com named her Model of the Year in 2005 after a vote of users; the same year she made her first appearance in the annual Victoria's Secret televised fashion show, as well as the company's lingerie catalogue. She became the spokesmodel for Calvin Klein's perfume Eternity in 2005, and signed on as the official face of L'Oreal cosmetics in 2006. Forbes magazine named her the fifth-highest-earning model in the world in 2008, with an annual income of six million dollars.
