I can tell you about Karlie Kloss but no one will do it better than "Klossy" herself. She is vibrant, down-to-earth, most honest G I R L you can relate to in the crazy world of fashion business. She is personally one year older than I am. Though our lives are tremendously different, I can relate to her, the way she naturally giggles, loves to bake, loves boxing, veggie lasagna and staying at home with her parents watching a movie, and most importantly she is not afraid to be herself. Now more than ever with her new channel on YouTube, she is unleashing her real self.

"Today, with all these platforms, you have a virtual persona—and I think it’s important, at least to me, that virtual persona, how somebody might perceive me just by looking at my online content that I’ve created. I hope that they actually get a feel for who I truly am."

~Karlie Kloss

Introduction to Karlie's life:

After you watch this video you realize that she is just a normal G I R L, like the rest of us. If she can do it so can you! She is just like the rest of us girls, open around her family and shy in public. You must have experienced that as a teenager; some of us still do in awkward situations. However, dance helped her get over the fear of performing and realizing that she did the best to prepare for the big moment. What I am trying to say is that you're allowed to dream and you never know when the world can be watching you, waiting for your every move and I think that it is great to take advantage of. Her voice to help others with a chance of happiness, just like she did with two girls from the Make a Wish foundation … they asked for a wish and Karlie went out of her way to make their wish come true! It really is moving, even more so for young people that have been through a lot. It makes you think, good things can happen, we just need to be kinder people.

“It’s really been interesting as a model to find my voice, and share my perspective and my point of view, as I had this really extraordinary insight into the industry. . . . It’s been really fun to watch and be a part of this change, especially as fashion has adapted to it."

When Karlie was asked to describe herself on her YouTube Channel, she picked these three adjectives:


And of course you're wondering, what does she think about while walking the runway like the diva she is? Her answer was again very honest. She just focuses on not doing anything idiotic.

What has Karlie learned in her past 23 years?

  ♥    When you have the time, "facetime" your family.
  ♥    Hard work pays off.
  ♥    Take time for yourself ... if you're late, make sure you have baked goodies.
  ♥    Not everyone is gonna like you and that's okay.
  ♥    Someone calls you a giraffe!! that's okay too.
  ♥    Blondes!! seem to have more fun.
  ♥    Coffee is a gift from the heavens.
  ♥    Failings are okay, as long as you learn from your mistakes.
  ♥    Wear colorful things, life is too short to wear black.
  ♥    When you have the chance, hold a baby.
  ♥    Every now and then step out of your comfort zone, it makes you grow.
  ♥    Choose happiness.
  ♥    Choose sleep.
  ♥    When in doubt, "blue steel it out."
  ♥    Always have you body full of chocolate.
  ♥    An emoji says a thousand words.
  ♥    The best accessory is a smile or a newspaper.
  ♥    Always let the person with the longest arm take the selfie (usually me).
  ♥    You're never too old to call mom for help.
  ♥    Coding is the language of the future.
  ♥    Make sure you're alarm is set to am not pm (I’ve made that mistake).
  ♥    When people subscribe to my YouTube Channel it makes me happy. :)
  ♥    The last thing I've learned is that I have a lot more to learn.

The thing is, we ALL have a lot more to learn and yeah some of us have more calories to burn. That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t love yourself the way you are!

Karlie is a G I R L. You are a G I R L. We are ALL beautiful girls … naturally!
