Kim Feenstra ( born 23 August 1985) is a Dutch model. She was the winning contestant of Cycle 2 of Holland's Next Top Model in 2007.
Feenstra came to prominence as a contestant on cycle two of Holland's Next Top Model. Later in the show she confessed to being partially deaf in both ears due to an accident when she was a child. In the final episode, host Yfke Sturm called her the perfect candidate with potential for both runway and photographic modelling, and that Feenstra had the most potential of all the contestants to make it on either the national or international stage. Her prize was a €50,000 modeling contract with Max Models, a cover for Glamour magazine, three months of all expenses paid modelling in South Africa for Ice Models, and a Mercedes-Benz A-Class. Feenstra subsequently starred on the cover of Glamour magazine's Summer edition.
She played a part in the movie The Last Ottoman in a love scene with Turkish actor Kenan İmirzalıoğlu. In 2013 she played the leading role in two movies, one of which was Verliefd op Ibiza (in love with/on Ibiza), directed by Johan Nijenhuis, which reached the first place at the Dutch box office, with a total yield of more than 5,1 million.
Mannenharten, directed by Mark de Cloe, was another success in the Netherlands in 2013. It premiered on 28 November 2013, and during its first two weeks attracted 215,000 people to the movie theaters and earned a total of 1.6 million. At the end of the year it ranked 5th of the top films. The sequel is already there, with Kim Feenstra and most of the original cast members in the story of six urban men in a gym, at a turning point in their lives. They are looking for their place in life and to the person who they want on their side.
