Karlie Kloss, top American model ranked in the top 30 models of the 2000s by the French Vogue magazine, was born in Chicago on August 3, 1992. Her family then moved to Saint Louis, Missouri. Very early on, she was destined to become a ballerina: she took classes at Caston’s Ballet Academy and participated in several ballets, including the renowned Nutcracker.

But spotted at the age of 15 by a headhunter while participating in a charity fashion show in St. Louis, she signed with the modeling agency Elite Model Management. The ballerina’s career is over. With her legs, childlike face and blonde hair, the young woman quickly made a name for herself. Calvin Klein showed her in an exclusive fashion show in New York in September 2007. A long list of prestigious designers then followed, including Valentino, Gucci, Vikor&Rolf, Topshop, Sonia Rykiel, Lacoste and Yves Saint Laurent. She is in turn the face of the perfume See by Chloé or Lola by Marc Jacobs.

In 2008, she left the Elite agency for Next. The first cries scandal and decides to sue the second, accusing her of stealing the top. But nothing stops the sculptural beauty of 17 years old. In 2009, she travels 250,000 kilometers by plane and becomes the face of Dolce & Gabbana. She was paid enormous sums of money, which propelled her to 7th place on the list of the world’s highest-paid models that same year. In 2010, she took part in the Dior and Hermès campaigns, a participation that she renewed for the Dior spring-summer 2011 collection campaign. In 2011, the young top model will be on the runway for Victoria’s Secret.

But at the end of 2011, Karlie Kloss created controversy by appearing, extremely thin, in supposedly glamorous photos on the Italian Vogue website. The photos were so disturbing that they had to be removed in the face of assaults from shocked readers. Outside the catwalks, Karlie Kloss made an appearance in the cult series Gossip Girl.

On the private side, in July 2018, she announced on her Instagram account her engagement to Joshua Kushner. On October 18, 2018, the couple got married in New York State.
