Karlie Kloss is an American fashion model born in 1992. She was discovered as a young teen and has proceeded to become one of modern day’s most successful models. Here is part one of our list of facts about the celebrity.

Number Fifteen: Karlie Kloss Didn’t Start College Until 23

She was too busy after high school to go straight to college, but didn’t want to wait until she was 30 to start college. She’s very busy right now, but hopes it’s only the beginning, because she wants to do it all.

Number Fourteen: She’s in a Super Famous Friendship

Kloss met BFF Taylor Swift at a Victoria’s Secret fashion show, and the two were introduced by a model who knew they were kindred spirits. Karlie says it’s hard to maintain contact with friends when you have such a busy life.

Number Thirteen: Vegan Cookies and Coding

In order to help feed hungry people around the world, Kloss started a vegan cookie fundraiser in 2012. In addition to this, she’s gotten into coding and aims to help women enter the world of technology through a scholarship called Kode With Karlie.

Number Twelve: Her Double Life

In between classes at her high school, she would fly to Europe for prestigious photo shoots. Surprisingly, no one at her school seemed to care, because apparently no one read Vogue Italia.

Number Eleven: Dior and Comfort

Karlie Kloss wore Dior couture to her prom, but despite that, she wouldn’t have considered herself high fashion back then. She liked to stay comfortable, and prefers that even today.

Number Ten: Her Thoughts on the Internet’s Effects on the Industry

Social media has changed everything, and this includes fashion modeling. Instead of only a few hundred people seeing shows, anyone with internet can tune in. She realizes that this puts a bigger spotlight on what she does, and is happy to be able to show her personality.

Number Nine: She’s Surprisingly Old-Fashioned

Instead of staying home and interacting on social media, she prefers to have in-person conversations where you can feel present with whoever you’re with. We hope you enjoyed part one of our list, and learned some things about Karlie. Check back soon for part two!
