Leader of the Pack - Karlie Kloss

The supermodel tag is so loosely used nowadays that the word appears to have lost its true meaning when used in reference to today's generation of models. For IMA, the word supermodel belongs to a distinct breed of model who has over time developed model-as-muse relationships with designers, stylists, and photographers, who possesses a chameleon-like quality, and whose career has withstood the fickle nature of fashion and evolving casting trends. One model who embodies the very essence of what it means to be truly Super is industry veteran Karlie Kloss, who at the ripe old age of twenty-one has enjoyed a prolific modelling career spanning over seven years. Kloss' modelling trajectory runs the full gamut of fashion's elite including campaign bookings for Donna Karan, Oscar de la Renta, Chloé, Alexander McQueen, Hermés, Yves Saint Laurent, and Dior. From the early outset, Kloss was marked for greatness appearing on the covers of Teen Vogue's February 2008 issue, followed by a rapid succession of cover appearances for American Vogue, W, i-D, Muse, Document, French Numéro, and virtually every international edition of Vogue. It was Kloss' scintillating coming-of-age December 2011 Vogue Italia cover appearance under the tagline "Extra Strength" followed by her inclusion in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show which confirmed her status as a bonafide high fashion model with true mass market commercial appeal. This month Kloss appears in a David Sims-lensed editorial for American Vogue, leaping and bounding all the while captivating readers with a mischievous snap-challenging gaze.
