Probably the No 1 male supermodel in the world, Mark actually entered the University of Amsterdam to study history when he was 22.
When accompaying a girlfriend to a photo shoot, Mark ended up being photographed himself. This led to a nationwide milk ad in his native Holland, and the rest is history.
He moved to Manhattan a few years later and landed high-profile jobs for Calvin Klein's Obsession (with Christy Turlington), Hugo Boss and DKNY (with his then girlfriend Esther Cañadas) amongst others.
Mark and Esther candans has since married but unfortunately they are now divorced.
Got milk? Mark Vanderloo did, when he landed, by happenstance, a national commercial for Holland's dairy board 10 years ago. Now, he's got a lot more than that as Hugo Boss' main man for the past three years.
On what he calls "home"

Born: April 24, 1968 in Waddenvenn Holland
Resides: Has homes in New York, Paris and Amsterdam
Trivia: Speaks five languages; is dating supermodel Carolyn Murphy
In 1992, Vanderloo was tending bar for $200 a night and modeling part-time near his village in Holland, when he was signed by Willemina and hit the international modeling scene. He says he opted to leave his native home to see the world. Four months later, he had become a runway sensation in Paris, Milan and Manhattan.
Hungry for a male supermodel, the industry pounced on the broad-shouldered boy. In 1994, he moved to Manhattan, bought a pair of rollerblades and became Calvin Klein's Obsession model. (Yes, that one--the guy in the white briefs, rolling around in the sand.)
By the following season, he had become a print sensation. His live appearances in the Calvin Klein, Versace, Herm¨¦s, Valentino and Boss shows brought in screaming girls (and men) and much needed attention to men's fashion.
In 1995, he landed the role as face--and body--of Boss' couture and ready-to-wear lines. Three other male models, including Vanderloo's best friend, Alex Ludquist, joined him to become the Fashion Fab Four. The troupe now rules the runways. In 1996, they became the first men to appear on the cover of Marie Claire.
Donna Karan hired Vanderloo that year for a hush-hush spring ad campaign, launching her new men's collection. While print remains Vanderloo's bread and butter, the model continues to balance a schedule of up to 50 shows per year. Perhaps that's why VH1's Fashion and Music Awards recently named him Male Model of the Year.
He's currently having a relation with Dutch actress Robine van der Meer. They have 2 children together and are currently living on Ibiza. Here's a pic of Robine (can't find a pic of the two together)
