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

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 was scouted.
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 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 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.
