Model Profile: Karlie Kloss
When Karlie Kloss was first scouted at a charity fashion show in St. Louise, she was still a teeanger. A few years later, she has already turned into one of the biggest name in the industry. This runway star is now a familiar face to many, for her frequent appearances in editorials in fashion magazines and high-end designer’s campaigns cannot be dismissed.
Karlie grew up in St. Louise, devoting a large portion of her time to ballet-dancing. Her success as a dancer built her with the basics of modeling. According to Karlie, her strong background in ballet helped her to learn how to walk in vertiginous heels. Already having the experience and knowledge in how to carry her body, Karlie’s modeling talent seemed to come to her naturally. The model, however, spent her teenage years like most of us did. Doing some of her favorite things such as baking and dancing helped Karlie to find a good balance between her modeling career and personal life. The carmine-lipped diva we see at Dior shows displays a complete different personality when off duty. Karlie is often being described by her colleagues as a modest and nice girl (Abbey Lee Kershaw called Karlie an absolute sweetheart), and may I just add that she is, above all, also a hard-working one. Another secret to become a top model? Karlie baked peanut butter cookies for New York based designer Alexander Wang when she went to his fitting. How much sweeter could that be?
This season, Karlie appeared in campaigns for Aquascutum, Oscar de la Renta, Donna Karan, and Dior. She was also previously in various campaigns including Yves Saint Laurent Beaute, Hermes, Chloe, and Lola (perfume) by Marc Jacobs. Aside from that, you can also see her on the covers of magazines such as Vogue, W, RUSSH, and French Revue des Modes.
