Born in a small town in Almere, Netherlands, Yfke Sturm is the daughter of an environmental inspector and a journalist. Yfke grew up playing sports with her two brothers and planning a future in sports medicine. That all changed one day in 1998, at a mall in Amsterdam where Yfke was approached by a scout for Elite Models. The 5' 11" teenager had never thought about being a model, but agreed to enter the 1998 Elite Model Look Contest. Winning not only Dutch nationals, but also the top prize at the International event in Nice, France, Yfke's career in fashion began shortly thereafter.
Determined to start working immediately, Yfke balanced work and school successfully, dividing her time between New York, Paris and Amsterdam. After completing school, Yfke became one of the world's top models.
Yfke has worked for many international fashion magazines such as Vogue, Haper's Bazaar, Elle, Marie Claire, Allure, Cosmo, L'Officiel, gracing many covers as well. Her advertising campaigns include Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Emporio Armani, Gianfranco Ferre, DKNY, Escada, H&M, and Carolina Herrera. Most recently she shot for Pantene, Laboratoires de Garnier (L'oreal), Boitherm (L'oreal), and XoXo.
