Karlie Kloss is an American supermodel, entrepreneur, and philanthropist.
Raised in St. Louis, she was discovered at a local charity fashion show at age 13 and has been modeling professionally ever since. Karlie has walked and done campaigns for top designers including Dior, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta and Versace, to name a few. She is currently the face of Carolina Herrera, Adidas, and Swarovski, among others. In 2014, Karlie was named a global ambassador for L'Oreal Paris, and in 2016, she was honored on TIME Magazine's 100 Most Influential People list.
Outside of modeling, Karlie partnered with Momofuku Milk Bar, combining her passion for baking, nutrition and philanthropy to create her own line of vegan, gluten-free cookies benefiting FEED and the CFDA. In the summer of 2015, Karlie launched her YouTube channel, Klossy, to share her and others’ stories.
Additionally, Karlie's personal passion for coding led her to launch the Kode With Klossy scholarship in 2014 to support young women learning code. The program's goal is to empower females in computer science and engineering fields through hands-on learning opportunities and community support early in their coding experience, when attrition is at its highest.
