Model Kay Smetsers is from Eindhoven, the Netherlands. At 20 years old, she has already made an impression on the modeling and fashion worlds. She walked exclusively for Gucci three times in a row, making her the only model to do so. Each exclusive walk included with breath-taking Hollywood fantasy special effects. With Gucci gaining envy for snatching up this young beauty, reports of feuds behind the camera are abound. Her beauty has been described as "out of a Renaissance painting" that includes "an ethereal, dreamy impression" that is inspiring to fashion designers and photographers alike.
Kay Smetsers is inspired equally by the 1980's grunge scene and Victorian high court apparel. Mixing high and low is always in vogue, meaning that she will remain an entity to Gucci and the high-end fashion houses of the modeling world. Besides modeling, Kay Smetsers sees herself as more of a "hermit" and poetic writer who loves to dream and spend time in nature. This is especially influenced by her mother’s hippie tendencies and influences. Whenever she is not busy modeling, she loves the work of eclectic artists such as Haruki Murakami and Sylvia Plath.
