Valerie Van Der Graaf is a model who is reaching 'elite' model status. There are many ways to know when a model is truly reaching elite model categorization and one sign is when photographers want the model to pose in clothing other than lingerie and swimsuits and when pictures of her in 'normal' clothing still get the attention of men and women.
Recent black and white pictures of Valerie Van Der Graaf by renowned photographer Grant Thomas showing her wearing a dress, a sweater and a one-piece bathing suit have been 'discovered' on the Internet by some fashionistas (fashion fans and bloggers) and also have come to the attention of some her male admirers and the pictures have made her a mini-social media sensation.
Fashionistas and male admirers have started looking at pictures of her on the Internet in which she is not only wearing lingerie and swimsuits but in dresses and sweaters and the response has been that she possesses the ability to make all clothing look great. This is the type of feeling that the 'elite' models create with the clothing they wear whether it be a t-shirt, swimsuit, workout gear or haute couture clothing.
The Dutch beauty has taken the next step toward becoming a model star as she has developed the ability to make clothing 'desirable' with her physique, facial expressions and personality which she has shown in her most recent modelling photos.
She has been discussed as a potential future Sports Illustrated Cover Model for the Swimsuit magazine but as the recent pictures by Grant Thomas illustrate one should not be surprised if she soon starts gracing the cover of some of the premier fashion magazines in the near future.
