In case you weren't sure, the era of the supermodel is back. Christy, Naomi, Cindy, and Claudia are old news, and Karlie Kloss is here to fill the void. The very newly 21-year-old (who is 6 feet tall) has taken the runways by storm with her signature walk, chopped haircut and feminine pout. But it turns out that you can have too much of a good thing -- just ask the designers who refuse to cast her in their Fashion Week shows. In an interview for the September issue of Vanity Fair, Kloss talks about being a supermodel. When asked what is the top excuse designers give for not using her in a show, Kloss' response: they tell her, "'You are too famous. No one will pay attention to the clothes.'"
So, what is Karlie doing when she's not hitting the runway? Well, she is gracing the pages of Vogue and landing multi-million dollar contracts, endorsements and campaigns. Now that's supermodel status.
