White angel against dark forces: how top model Karen Mulder lost beauty, contracts and mind25.06.2022
Karen really wanted to try, but she did not even want to think that she could succeed. After telling her friend about this, she certainly didn’t imagine that she would secretly send a few photos of her to the Elite office… The rest was a matter of technique. Karen was invited to the agency, she won the national stage of the competition in Holland and went to the international final, where she took second place. A year later, she opened the shows of Valentino and Yves Saint Laurent, posed for the covers.
It seems to live and rejoice, but in 2001, on the ill-fated show that the world never saw, Karen will declare that she was abused by her own father and a certain family friend who harassed her from early childhood. And it was far from the most shocking confession.
The life of a model is not only shows and shootings, but also parties. And sometimes you have to go to them, not because you want to, but because you need to. Beautiful girls serve as a decoration for any table, box of a sports match or loud presentation. And if the top model deigned to honor the event with her presence, consider the holiday a success.
Karen Mulder went out actively – accompanied either by female colleagues from Elite, or by agency bosses. She was constantly introduced to high-ranking politicians, businessmen, representatives of European royal families. One of her friends was Albert II of Monaco, a great connoisseur of model beauty at that time.
