Karlie Kloss – David Sims Photoshoot 2014 + Karlie Kloss shares her exercise secrets
Karlie Elizabeth Kloss (born August 3, 1992) is an American fashion model. Kloss is ranked seventh on the Top 50 Models Women list by Models.com. Vogue Paris declared her one of the top 30 models of the 2000s. She is a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
In 2006, at the age of 14, Kloss posed for photographer David Leslie Anthony for a 12-page editorial and cover for Scene Magazine in Chicago. Elite Chicago (now Factor Women) then forwarded these tear sheets to Elite NY, who then brought Kloss to New York.
One of her first modelling stints was for Abercrombie when she posed for the brand’s photography shot by Bruce Weber. In January 2008 she left Elite and signed with NEXT Model Management. She ended up walking 31 runways in New York Fashion Week notably, closing for Marc Jacobs, opening Carolina Herrera, and occupying both spots at Doo.Ri. After New York she went on to walk 20 shows in Milan, and 13 in Paris for the fall 2008 collections, with a total of 64 shows in a single season. Kloss found herself in the middle of a legal dispute when her former agency Elite Model Management sued NEXT Model Management for allegedly stealing its young star by offering her “improper compensation” to sign. Elite felt they were responsible for launching her career and booked much work for her. The case was eventually settled out of court.
After four years of being represented by Next Model Management, Kloss is now signed with IMG Models. “Karlie has an immense and loyal following, and we welcome the opportunity to help expand her relationships through endorsements as well as our global network that reaches beyond fashion”, said Ivan Bart, IMG Models’ senior vice president and managing director.
She was named the best model by People magazine in 2008. Kloss, labeled her famed runway walk a “moody gait”. Molly Sims, whom she considers a mentor, told New York she thinks Kloss will still “do well at 30” because of her “classic look”.
Karlie Kloss shares her exercise secrets
The Victoria’s Secret model has become a fitness icon thanks to her enviably toned figure. The 21-year-old reveals she gets a lot of clarity from working out on a regular basis.
“I like to constantly be in motion, whether that’s taking a bike ride around the city or working with a trainer and feeling like I’m going to collapse,” she told Elle.com. “When you’re dripped in sweat, you feel like you can think clearly. You feel stronger.”
The model has to fit her exercise regime around her career, which takes her all over the world. But Karlie is always able to squeeze a session in and actually finds staying in her hotel room more beneficial.
“I bring two or three-pound ankle weights and resistance bands. Sometimes I get a better workout staying in my room and forcing myself to do half an hour or even 15 minutes versus going to the gym,” she explained. “Before I leave for work, I try to do something. It helps me feel better for the rest of the day.”
