Dominating the Big3, Catwalks-Covers-Campaigns, Karlie Kloss is enjoying one major “Model-Groove.” It’s not that often that we will witness a model go from the cover of Vogue US, to an amped-up runway show for Victoria’s Secret, to a variety of high-fashion editorials – all in the same month. In the world of modeling there’s not alot of “crossover” between categories. But this feisty “American-Beauty” seems to be writing her own rules, and blowing us away in the process. And in front of famed photographer Hedi Slimane for the January Issue of Vogue Japan, Kloss doesn’t disappoint. In this thoughtful, evocative portrayal of dancer, both enlightened and weighed down by her relentless dreams of greatness, she brings the perfect mix of studied athleticism and poised regret.
