Karlie Kloss
Karlie Elizabeth Kloss (born August 3, 1992) is an American fashion model. Kloss is ranked seventh on the Top 50 Models Women list by[4] Vogue Paris declared her one of the top 30 models of the 2000s.[5] She is a Victoria's Secret Angel.[6]

Kloss was born in Chicago, Illinois, the daughter of Tracy (née Fares), a freelance art director and Kurt Kloss, an emergency physician.[7][8] Her family has Danish roots.[8] She has three siblings, Kristine, and twins Kimberly and Kariann.[8] She moved to St. Louis, Missouri, with her family, in 1994.[9] 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.[10] Kloss was "discovered at a local benefit runway show".[11] She attended Webster Groves High School.[12]

2006–10: Beginnings and modelling breakthrough[edit]
In 2006, at the age of 14, Kloss posed for photographer David Leslie Anthony for a 12-page editorial and cover for Scene Magazine in Chicago.[citation needed] Elite Chicago (now Factor Women) 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.[8] 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.[13] 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.[14] Elite felt they were responsible for launching her career and booked much work for her.[14] The case was eventually settled out of court.[15]

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
