Dutch models are not the dumb blonde stereotype. Over 70% of Dutch models have a university degree or higher. This is the result from a research by the modeling agency VIP Promomodels.
The agency asked two hundred of his models about their education. This shows that 32 percent have a university degree.
Almost half of the models have a master’s degree and only one quarter has a bachelor degree.
TV shows such as Beauty and the Nerd and Holland Next Top Model are giving the wrong impression, that beautiful people are dumb and stupid. This research shows that this impression is wrong.
The increasing demand for highly educated and representative employees was the main reason for the research.
