Known for her especially standout runway walk, everyone from Anna Wintour to Marc Jacobs has fallen in love with Karlie Kloss. Born August 3, 1992, this fresh face from St. Louis, Missouri, was discovered during a charity fashion show. She immediately garnered fans in the fashion industry, landing covers for Vogue, Teen Vogue, Vogue Australia, Vogue China, W Korea, and Russh, plus she’s been the face of campaigns for Alexander McQueen, Chloé, Dolce & Gabbana, Lacoste, Marc Jacobs’ Lola fragrance, Nina Ricci, Prada, Pringle of Scotland, and See by Chloé.

In just a few short years, Karlie’s walked down runways in all major fashion cities—New York, London, Milan, and Paris, not to mention her overwhelming appearances in magazines and editorials. Most notably was her two-page spread in the Vogue’s September 2009 issue called “I Karlie,” where Steven Meisel fawned over the beauty.

Despite all of her success in the modeling industry, it’s imperative to remember her youth and avid activities besides strutting down runways. Karlie finds love in dancing, as she studied at Caston’s Ballet Academie and was asked to be a part of the Caston Chamber Ballet. But dancing isn’t her only love. If modeling hadn’t called to her, then you could find Karlie cooking up a storm, in her own bakery, or saving lives as a doctor just like her father.
