カーリー・クロスは、ティーン時代は自分の体に自信がなかっが「バレエに打ち込んできたので、ダンスで筋肉をつけて、強く健康な身体を保っています」。



「ヴィクトリアズ・ シークレット(Victoria's Secret)」のエンジェル、カーリー・クロス(Karlie Kloss)は、今でこそ下着姿でテレビに映ることにも抵抗がないが、ティーン時代は自分の体に自信がなかったという。

 現在20歳のカーリーは「学校時代、長身でひょろっとした女の子でいるのはなかなかつらかったです。とても不安でした。でも、モデルになってから自分のスタイルを受け入れられるようになりました。背が高いのはいいことばかりではありません。私はいつもバンビみたいな気分でした」と振り返る。

 カーリーは今年だけでも「ルイ・ヴィトン(LOUIS VUITTON)」、「ダナ キャラン(Donna Karan)」、「ラコステ(LACOSTE)」、「ランバン(Lanvin)」など多くのブランドのキャンペーンに起用されているが、小さな町出身ということもあり、自分が世界で最も評価されているモデルの一人であることには驚いているという。

 「ミズーリ州のセントルイス(St Louis)で、4人姉妹の次女として育ちました。中西部の町はあまりファッショナブルではありません。私自身も含め、誰もこんな仕事をするようになるとは思っていませんでした」

 「今はニューヨークに住んでいますが、仕事で移動することが多くて、自分の仕事時間はなかなか把握できません。普段はニューヨークで数日間、「ヴィクトリアズ・ シークレット」や雑誌の撮影をしています。それから、ほとんど毎週ブラジルやヨーロッパに行きますね」と現在のライフスタイルについて明かす。

 「ヴィクトリアズ・ シークレット」のモデルたちがジムに通っている中で、カーリーは“バレエ”で体型をキープしているという。「私はエクササイズ狂ではありません。でも、少し頑張った方がいいのかもしれないですね。ヴィクトリアズ・ シークレットのほかのモデルたちを見ていると、まるでオリンピック選手みたいにトレーニングしていますから」とコメント。「私はずっとバレエに打ち込んできたので、ダンスで筋肉をつけて、強く健康な身体を保っています」と語った。

Early life and discovery

She moved to St. Louis, Missouri, with her family, in 1994. Kloss has called her classical ballet training "a beautiful thing" that taught her how to move in the modeling world and was a great training ground for her runway walk. Kloss was "discovered at a local benefit runway show". She attended Webster Groves High School.

Career

2006–10: Beginnings and modelling breakthrough
At the beginning of her career in 2006, Kloss posed for photographer David Leslie Anthony for a 12-page editorial and cover for Scene Magazine in Chicago. Elite Chicago 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.[15] 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 is the type of model who will still "do well at 30" because of her classic look.

She has been in advertisements for Jean Paul Gaultier, Donna Karan, Nina Ricci, Chloé, Lacoste, Sportmax, Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, Elie Saab, Dolce & Gabbana, Gap, Bally Shoe, Bergdorf Goodman, Pringle of Scotland, Dior, Hermes, Oscar de la Renta, Sonia Rykiel, Aquascutum, Topshop, Eryn Brinie, Uniqlo, Omnia Jade, Lord & Taylor, Barneys New York, American Eagle, and Victoria's Secret PINK. Kloss is the face of the Marc Jacobs fragrance Lola. She has walked for numerous designers in New York, London, Milan and Paris, including Shiatzy Chen, Calvin Klein, Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen, Givenchy, Gucci, Valentino, Louis Vuitton and Versace, Elie Saab and appeared in editorials for American and Korean W, American Elle, Allure, i-D, French and Japanese Numéro, Vanity Fair, Dazed & Confused, and American, Australian, Italian, French, British, Korean, German, Japanese, Chinese, Turkish, Portuguese, Teen, and Latin American Vogue magazines. Her covers include Italian Vogue in October 2009, January 2010, and December 2011, Vogue Turkey, Vogue Portugal, Vogue China in February, August, and November in 2010, British Vogue in September 2012, Vogue Korea and American Teen Vogue, alongside Chanel Iman and Ali Michael in February 2008 and by herself in May 2010.

Her runway walk, one of the most unique, is often described as powerful. In February 2011, supermodel Tyra Banks stated that Kloss was one of her favorite models because of her "unique, atypical beauty".

In 2011 Kloss renewed her contract with Christian Dior for the third season in a row. The same year, she made her debut in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

In 2012 Kloss is featured on the September covers of British Vogue, Japanese Vogue, Harper's Bazaar Russia, and Numéro.[citation needed] She appeared in the campaign ads of Juicy Couture, Stefanel, Elie Saab, and Jean Paul Gaultier.[citation needed] She co-hosted with the revival of the MTV series House of Style with fellow model Joan Smalls.

Personal life

Her hobbies include baking cookies, biking, and ballet.

In collaboration with Momofuku Milk Bar, she created a special recipe called Karlie's Kookies, which she sold in DKNY Soho during Fashion's Night Out in New York City, with proceeds benefiting hungry children around the world (through FEED Projects). She calls it a "Perfect 10 Cookie", because it contains dark chocolate and almond oat (dairy-free, gluten-free, and no sugar added).
