Karlie Kloss, the fashion world’s favorite all-American, cookie-baking supermodel, has (professionally) grown up. Interviews usually paint Kloss as a charming Midwestern gal who just happens to model for top brands like Chanel. Vogue Italia‘s December issue, however, shows that perhaps she wants to shed that image (and show off an amazing bod).
Kloss earned an 18-page photo spread, which seems to be more of a tribute to her amazing figure than a fashion feature (it’s even entitled “Body by Kloss”). In it, she flaunts her toned legs, reveals some ripped abs and, oh yeah, lots of boob. And butt. Source is NSFW. [via Fashionista]
I really like this spread; it channels a “1990s supermodel” vibe, but with a more toned (rather than heroin chic) look. And while I don’t usually notice models’ physiques, this shoot floored me. Kloss looks amazing, and I want to run to the gym (… after the holidays).
At 19, I think Kloss has every right to pose in these shots. Plus they are very tastefully done; her sombrero photo (NSFW) could easily be mistaken for an art print. I just hope the spread doesn’t alienate any of her fans that were drawn to her “innocent Midwesterner” image (because it shouldn’t).
What do you think of the shoot? Is Kloss too young to bare her bod like this?
