Doutzen Kroes, Cara Delevingne and Nina Agdal Turn Out for the Ultra Music Festival

Marking the kick-off to what is now officially known as “festival season,” the annual Ultra Music Festival returned to Miami this weekend with more performers, DJs and models than ever before!

After making a splash at the shows last year, Victoria’s Secret Angel Doutzen Kroes returned to the scene on Sunday to cheer on her DJ husband Sunnery James, who took to the stage that afternoon.  While hanging out in the VIP stands, the expecting model kept cool in a paisley print kaftan, orange pool sliders and a leopard print crossbody bag.  Though there was little sign of the Dutch beauty’s new baby bump, there was no mistaking her pregnancy glow from behind her Ray-Bans.  As you might recall it was just two weeks ago that, Doutzen announced via Instagram that she will be having a girl, posting a make-up free selfie, with the caption: “Almost 6 months pregnant with a a girl #happy.”

Super Sunday: The Models Take Over the 2014 Vogue Festival


With two days of inspiring talks, fashion fun and countless supermodel appearances, this weekend’s 3rd annual Vogue Festival proved to be its best yet!

Kicking off on Saturday with Alexa Chung, Phoebe Philo, Valentino Garavani and Manolo Blahnik, the event switched into high gear on Sunday when supermodels Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn and Edie Campbell took to the stage for their “What’s It Really Like To Be A Model?” talk. Sharing their experiences of the industry, including the crazier moments of their careers, how they were discovered, and the pressures they’ve faced on their way to the top, the models gave the audience a taste of the real model lifestyle— both the good and the bad.

“I was not pretty growing up,” admit Edie. “I had some really bad orthodontics, a big forehead: I was a vision, but not in a good way… My first photo shoot, my first day of modelling, was actually with Mario Testino. It was great; I got the day off school, got a free lunch…”
