Model of the Moment: Karlie Kloss

Karlie Kloss, or ‘The Kloss” as she is also known, has had an incredible past four years. At only 17 years of age, she has already established herself in the fashion scene, and is one of the world’s top models. Having been discovered at the age of 13 at a charity fashion show in St.Louis, Missouri, Kloss (a former ballerina) could not have invisioned just how much her life would change. She originally signed with Elite Model Management in 2007, before making the controversial decision of signing with Next Model Management in January 2008.

Kloss has walked more runways, and been featured in more editorials than some models older than her and with more years’ worth of experience. She ranks #8 in the list of Top 50 Models by, and according to the Fashion Spot Community, Kloss (along with Hanne Gaby Odiele, and Iris Strobegger)ranks #7 in the top 10 catwalkers of this past season, with an incredible 56 shows.

Known for both her unique runway walk and look, as well as her incredibly long legs, Kloss has been popular amongst many of the top designers and is a favourite of photographers and editors alike. Along with her high rankings in various top model, and top catwalker lists, this year alone she has been featured in the most editorials for Vogue (American, American Teen Vogue, British, Paris, Italia, Germany, etc).

Karlie Kloss may be only 17 years old, but she has quite an impressive list of achievements and accomplishments from the past few years. That list will simply continue to expand as her popularity increases year by year. The Kloss, or the “coolest new face” in the modelling world will continue to be at the top of her game for a while, I’m certain of that.
