Number Twelve: Her Double Life
In between classes at her high school, she would fly to Europe for prestigious photo shoots. Surprisingly, no one at her school seemed to care, because apparently no one read Vogue Italia.
Number Eleven: Dior and Comfort
Karlie Kloss wore Dior couture to her prom, but despite that, she wouldn’t have considered herself high fashion back then. She liked to stay comfortable, and prefers that even today.
Number Ten: Her Thoughts on the Internet’s Effects on the Industry

When asked if she reads the comments about her online, she says that she has, and while the majority are positive, some bullies exist. She has learned to ignore this, and see that stuff as “just noise.”
Number Seven: Ballet Contributed to Her Success
While growing up in St. Louis, Missouri, Karlie became obsessed with ballet. She lists this as a reason why she has the career she does, since ballet taught her to move.

Number Four: ‘Weird Tall Alien’

She was spray painted with glitter for a London photo shoot. Shortly after, her throat started swelling and she had to be assessed by a medic.
