Dutch model is out of this world

News

London - She already has the fashion world at her feet, but Dutch supermodel Doutzen Kroes is to be launched into a bigger orbit. She has been picked to go on the first commercial flight into space.

“My work has brought me to the most beautiful places on earth,” says the 26-year-old Victoria’s Secret model, who will face the countdown in 2014. “But apparently nothing is as beautiful as the view of the Earth from space.”

Model Doutzen Kroes

Doutzen isn’t simply a tourist, though - she’s reaching for the stars to help promote the HIV charity dance4life (a second ticket will be auctioned for a flight in July). She may be the fifth highest-paid model on the planet (making £4 million in 2010), but “curvy” Doutzen complains she is constantly being told to lose weight. So maybe this is a solution that doesn’t involve starvation? After all, 65 miles above the Earth, she’ll weigh absolutely nothing at all. - Daily Mail
