The Chatroom: Karlie Kloss

Watch her teach Leandra how to do the Kloss Walk


It’s possible that back when Karlie Kloss was a brand new high school freshman trying to figure out her class schedule, waiting to hear back from an agency as to whether or not she’d booked her first show, calling her “just” a model would have been accurate. There might even have been a bit of time, once booking it, where she could have been “just” a model. After all, she originally wanted to be a pediatrician; this show could have just been a fun one-off before she focusing on the med school path.

But instead (as I imagine it), once she hit the runway and her hips began to sway in what would soon become her signature strut, there was no question in anyone’s mind that she’d ever be “just” a model. Indeed: Karlie Kloss is a supermodel for the millennial generation. She doesn’t “just” walk in the most coveted and influential shows: She’s an entrepreneur, a content creator, a cookie maker, an independent publisher and Leandra’s runway coach.

Wait, what? You’ll “just” have to watch the Chatroom episode above.

    YEASSSSSS that was amazing! I met Karlie once in a coffee shop she seemed like a genuinely nice and warm person

  • YES!!!! Karlie is a fan favorite. All of her philanthropic work shows that she’s not merely a pretty face, she gives back, which is something very admirable considering her widespread platform. She exudes the vibe of confidence yet she is simultaneously humble and is easily seen as relatable and real.
