NEW YORK — Myrthe Bolt likes to smile. The reason is rather uncomplicated, the facial expression makes her happy. “When I shoot I love to do the smiling [shots] because it’s not very often that you have to do one,” Myrthe explains. “When I make a selfie I would never do that to be pretty…I would always try to smile.” That Myrthe boasts a phenomenal smile also confirms that as a model she knows her angles. Hers is a weapons-grade smile the likes of which would have highway patrol tearing tickets on quota deadline day. Beating a moving violation is one thing, but making it in the high stakes world of modeling are two very different propositions. Myrthe is equal to the challenge, however as she has proven since first appearing on this page back in February walking in the Versus Versace show in London. That season she would go on to walk for Fendi and Chanel amongst a select few others, which were reasons alone to smile.

Hailing from the north of the Netherlands, Groningen to be exact, Myrthe was discovered a couple years ago. She would eventually sign to Next worldwide and shortly thereafter make her runway debut on the final day of shows during the Spring 2017 ready-to-wear season walking for Miu Miu. Earlier this year she even featured in the pages of British Vogue for a shoot she did in Tenerife. Fashion or modeling for that matter was never anything in which Myrthe had much interest growing up, but she nevertheless has taken to her newfound trade. One day in the future Myrthe plans to study medicine with the aspiration to become a doctor. Until that day, however expect this girl to keep on smiling.
