Model Spotlight: Karlie Kloss

Seventeen year old Karlie Kloss is already a sensation. Her resume to date is rather impressive for someone so young, her first shoot was for Teen Vogue at the tender age of 14! She’s spends part of her life as a regular high-school student and the other part as one of the most in demand models in the industry, last year she was the most photographed model for American Vogue.

She is a catwalk favourite, she studied ballet for 6 years before becoming a model so she has natural poise and grace. She’s also racked up an impressive number of editorials, in some images her literally leaps out of the page at you. It’s no surprise that many big names in the industry have pegged her as the next American supermodel.

One of the nicest facts I’ve learnt about her is that she loves baking, she baked Alexander Wang cookies when she went to a fitting! How adorable is that? 

“She’s a chameleon,” says Dior designer John Galliano. “She becomes this other creature in front of the lens. She thinks about her role, her pose, her part. She’s able to step in front of [photographer] Steven Meisel and all of us and be totally in control and self-assured, delivering pose after perfect pose”.

“She’s my lucky closer,” says Jason Wu, who has assigned her the coveted finale spot at his show for the past four seasons straight. “She has such presence. You see so many girls who are so young; it’s not very often that you find one with Karlie’s poise. I don’t think we’ve seen that since the supermodel days.” Galliano agrees, “She has a frisson of old-school glamour.”
