Sylvie Françoise van der Vaart (née Meis; born 13 April 1978) is a Dutch model, actress and television presenter and wife of footballer Rafael van der Vaart.

For her 18th birthday, Sylvie decided that she wanted to be a model and was cast for various shoots by casting agencies. After becoming interested in television, she gained popularity through assignments at FoxKids and music station TMF. She hosts several events at TMF, such as presenting the annual TMF-awards, and conducting interviews with international artists such as Britney Spears and Kylie Minogue. In addition, she features in video clips and the Dutch TV-series Costa. In collaboration with the firm of JPC, she also introduced the Pure by Sylvie jewellery line to the Dutch market. Thereafter, she hosted the 2008 FIFA World Player of the Year award ceremony

After being elected the Netherlands' Sexiest Female in 2003, she started a relationship with then-AFC Ajax footballer Rafael van der Vaart. Due in part to the fame from their individual careers, they soon become the Netherlands' most famous "soccer couple." Their fame grew after their marriage on 10 June 2005 and live coverage of the wedding on SBS, with the broadcast gaining high ratings in the Netherlands; Sylvie took Rafael's last name.

In September 2004, an Ajax Eredivisie league match against ADO Den Haag was temporarily halted by match officials due to incessant anti-Semitic chants by opposition fans directed at Sylvie.

Sylvie and her husband moved to Germany when he left Ajax to play for Bundesliga football club Hamburger SV. After her husband's 2008 transfer to Real Madrid, the van der Vaarts moved to Spain. The couple's first child, Damián Rafael, was born on 28 May 2006. On 16 June 2009, she announced that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, and had undergone surgery in May 2009. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy.
