Maybe she’ll be a model prisoner.

Roosmarijn de Kok, a 19-year-old Dutch model who has appeared on the cover of Vogue Thailand, is accused of stealing chocolate bars and fish oil from a Whole Foods store in New York City, the New York Daily News reports.

De Kok, who wore Yves Saint Laurent to her Monday court appearance, is accused of concealing the items in her bag and trying to leave the store without paying on July 18, according to the New York Post.

Her lawyer, Sal Strazzullo, says the teen just “forgot” about the candy and fish oil, and pointed out that she did pay for other items that trip, including protein bars and non-fat yogurt.

He also says she’s innocent because she never actually left the store with the products.

“The complaint states that she attempted to leave — it doesn’t state that she did leave. She’s totally innocent,” he told the Post.

Prosecutors offered to drop all charges if the model keeps a clean record for six months, but she rejected the deal and the case was adjourned until September 25.
