Ymre Stiekema (born 3 May 1992 in Groningen, Netherlands) is a Dutch model.

At the age of fifteen, she began her modeling career when she placed as first runner-up in the finals of the Elite Model Look in April 2008 in Prague.[3] This earned her a contract amount of 100.000.[clarification needed] She won the Dutch Model Awards in Amsterdam on May 22, 2008.[3] Not long after, she signed with the Italian luxury brand Prada.[4] Stiekema has also modeled for Jason Wu, Dior, and Donna Karan, and appeared in editorials for Vogue.

Controversy[edit]

In 2015, Stiekama modeled for Vogue Netherlands featuring Bugaboo Strollers, in which she was made to wear a bikini showing her toned physique while running with an active stroller;[5] it angered some mothers because it was perceived as unrealistic.[6][5]
