Karlie Kloss, the budding supermodel and Saint-Louis native is only 19 years and already done nine seasons of Fashion Week. She just graduated high school this past year and had to insert her senior prom in-between couture shows. It was quite a statement when Life Magazine decided to put Karlie on their cover after photographer Gabrielle Revere spent about six months following her around all over the globe.
Karlie currently ranks third on the Top 50 Models Women List and most recently landed a deal as the face of Oscar de la Renta's Spring 2012 campaign.
She was the first model to grace Life's cover in over 20 years, a true honor for this former ballet dancer who is represented by Next Models. When asked about the photographs Karlie choked up, explaining that she had never been captured in such a personal yet beautiful way.
