What is the BoF 500?

The BoF 500 is the definitive professional index of the people shaping the $2.4 trillion fashion industry, hand-selected by the editors of The Business of Fashion, based on hundreds of nominations received from current BoF 500 members, extensive data analysis and research.


The Amsterdam-native is a model of the moment. A regular on the catwalks of Chanel, Fendi and Valentino, Wijnaldum has also fronted fashion campaigns for Givenchy, Fendi and Moschino, as well as starring in beauty campaigns for Tom Ford .

Wijnaldum is an alum of the Elite Model Look competition, entering in her final year of high school. Her runway debut was during Couture Fashion Week in the autumn of 2015, where she first walked for Jean Paul Gaultier and Valentino.

Appearances at the likes of Prada, Chloé, Lanvin and Loewe followed and she landed her first campaign shortly after, starting alongside Sasha Pivovarova and Natalia Vodianova in Prada’s Spring/Summer 2016 campaign, aged 17.

Wijnaldum has covered numerous international editions of Vogue, as well as i-D, Dazed magazine and Numéro, and appeared in editorials in American Vogue, CR Fashion Book and W Magazine, to name but a few.

She is represented by Elite Worldwide and The Society Management in New York.
