Mad Respect: Patricia van der Vliet
Dutch model Patricia van der Vliet can be found within the pages of Vogue and Interview, but in her off-time, you’re more likely to see her traveling the world. The Inside Source caught up with this adventurous (not to mention drop dead gorgeous) spirit to talk about her holiday getaways, what she packs when she gets away, and the year going forward.
Jenny Bahn: Where are you dreaming of taking off to this holiday season?
Patricia van der Vliet: Tulum! I love it there. Everything is still so untouched and raw. The food is incredible. So are the beaches. Love the Mexican hospitality. And apart from mind blowing beaches you can do so much adventures stuff down there.
JB: Most glorious moment of 2013?
PV: My most glorious moment… Think it might sound stupid to some of you, but — honestly — when I reached the top of Machu Picchu.
JB: What are your top five things to pack before leaving town?
PV: 1) Embryolisse, the face cream I always use, 2) Leonor Greyl Anti-Frizz serum (girl’s gotta keep her curls in line), 3) A good book (I am a huge bookworm. There ain’t no way I’m hitting the road without a good book underneath my arm), 4) Very superficial, but my iPhone, yes.. and 5) My Starbucks instant coffee (the Bold Italian flavour. There’s nothing worse then finding yourself with a flavourless cup of coffee. My morning depends on it. I always make sure I have one or two packs with me.)
JB: Any goals for 2014? Dare we say, “resolutions”?
PV: 2014… I would like to cook some more. I keep on buying all these cookbooks, but for some reason I only end up cooking when I’m visiting my family in Holland. I need to make it a point to cook more whilst being in New York.
