In recent years the newest generation of supermodels have been
making names for themselves by dominating covers, walking numerous
fashion shows a season and hosting television shows and events.
have slowly been taking back the beauty campaigns, fashion covers
and editorials that for the past decade have been leaning towards
celebs and actresses.
talking about the new gen of supermodels Joan, Cara, Lindsey,
Jourdan, and Karlie.
these new faces joining the familiar goddesses of the modeling
world such as Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima and Candice
Swanepoel just to name a few, there has been one new generation
supermodel that has stood out.
the past year if you flipped through the pages of your favorite
glossy, chances are you've seen this modeling superstar numerous
times. You've held her face on multiple covers of Vogue and
Elle. You've seen her open and close more shows at Fashion Week
than any other, and lately you've seen a new VS angel and first
time ever short hair girl for VS.
talking about Karlie Kloss and let's not forget the co-host
of the all-new MTV House of Style along with her good friend
Joan Smalls. Over
the past two years Karlie Kloss has been everywhere, she was
our 2012 supermodel of the year and kept steady in the top 5
of our supermodel rankings.
story like so many other supermodels starts out with Kloss not
having dreams of becoming a model. She spent years training
as classical ballet dancer until that life changing day she
early modeling career began with the development of husband
and wife Jeff and Mary Clarke, the owners of Mother Model Management
who discovered her at the age of thirteen. We could go on and
on about how the Clarks train and developed their models, yet
to simply put it, if you're going to have a mother agency there
is no others like Mother Model Management.
Karlie's modeling career began to blossom, her entire family
came together to help support her promising career. Her three
sisters were always there to help, her family made the move
to be closer to New York City, and her aunts at times flew with
her to Europe when she had show or a shoot.
in mind, Karlie's typical day could be closing a show for Oscar
de la Renta, homework later that night, then waking early for
highschool the next day.
just 21 years old the 6' 1" Kloss has achieved so much,
yet her greatest accomplishment is her collaboration with Momofuku
Milk Bar which she shares her Karlie's Perfect 10 Kookie recipe,
with proceeds benefiting hungry children around the world through
for her famous panther like runway walk Kloss has definitely
helped light that spark for the new generation of supermodel,
add that she is becoming one of VS sexiest Angel and let's not
forget she has plenty more Kookie recipes in the works. We can
surely see Karlie around for many more years just like her supermodel
idol Christy Turlington.
