About Karlie Kloss in brief
Karlie Elizabeth Kloss is an American fashion model. She was a Victoria’s Secret Angel from 2013 until 2015; she resigned to study at New York University. In 2019, Kloss became the host of the reality competition television series Project Runway. She has appeared on 12 international Vogue covers, including Vogue Italia, a five-year span of Teen Vogue, alongside Chanel Iman and Ali Iman. Kloss has an interest in technology and has founded the \”Kode with Klossy\” camp, which aims to get young girls interested in STEM fields. Her family has Danish, German and Polish ancestry. She moved to St. Louis with her family in 1994. In 2013, the family moved to Goshen, New York to supplement her modeling career. She made her first venture into television when she appeared in four episodes of Gossip Girl as herself in May 2010. She became a muse for designer John Galliano and appeared on the cover of Glamour in February 2008 and May 2010, respectively. In January 2008, she left Elite Model Management and signed with Next Management. She walked 31 runways in New York Fashion Week, notably walking as an exclusive for Calvin Klein, closing for Marc Jacobs, opening Carolina Herrera, and occupying both spots at Doo.
Ri. She has been in advertisements for Rebecca Taylor, Jean Paul Gaultier, Donna Karan, Nina Ricci, Chloé, Lacoste, Sportmax, Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, Elie Saab, Dolce & Gabbana, Gap, Bally Shoe, Bergdorf Goodman, Pringle of Scotland, Dior, Hermès, Oscar de la Renta, Sonia Rykiel, Aquascutum, Topshop, Eryn Brinie, Lord & Taylor, Barneys New York, American Eagle, American Eagles, and Adidas. She is the face of the Marc Jacobs fragrance Lola. In September 2015, she enrolled in the Gallatin School of Individualized Study of New York university. She calls her classical ballet training \”a beautiful thing\” that taught her how to move in the modeling world and was a great training ground for her runway walk. Kloss found herself in the middle of a legal dispute when her former agency, Elite Model management, sued Next Management for allegedly stealing its star by offering her \”improper compensation\” to sign. The case was eventually settled out of court.
