Over the past two years the newest generation of supermodels
have been making names for themselves by dominating covers,
walking up to 40 shows a season and hosting television shows
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, Daphne 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 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. This
past year Karlie Kloss has been everywhere, she's currently
our reining supermodel of the year and ranked at our number
one supermodel of the moment.
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 20 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 FEED Projects.
for her famous panther like runway walk Kloss has definitely
helped light that spark for the new generation of supermodel,
add that she was just named the newest VS 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.
