23-year-old model Karlie Kloss has kicked-off the new year with her latest project – modelling for the new Topshop Spring 2016 campaign!
Topshop unveiled the new campaign with a feature titled Be More Karlie in 2016, where Karlie shares what inspires her. Check out her quotes below!
“I’m curious about how things work. That’s why I’ve been learning how to code. I started thinking, how does my phone work?Coding is the language of the future.” Karlie says of her interest in coding, which she is studying at NYU.
“I think it’s incredibly important for girls to learn how to code. I started Kode With Karlie to empower other young women like myself, to encourage them to recognize that it can be something they can find interesting and that it can get them ahead in their career.”
“I’m so inspired by the powerful women that I get to interact with. So many of the great people in the fashion industry are women, and I grew up in a house of women who are so unique and independent thinking.”
“I need the release of exercise because I spend so much time in a studio or on an aeroplane. I used to hate running. To get over that I started training for a half marathon! I’m a bit extreme like that.”
“I have to motivate myself to train, especially when it’s miserable in January. But you’ve got to put your gym clothes on and do enough to break a sweat. It’ll change your energy for the entire day.”
“If you want to be successful, just dive in. Find something you really enjoy and if you’re truly passionate about something and put the hard work in, then success is inevitable.”
“I grew up in Mid West America with not always the healthiest food, but in the past few years I’ve got into
cooking with cleaner, fresher ingredients. If you use ingredients that are in season, you don’t even have to do much cooking.”
“I’m so close to my three sisters. When we’re all back home in St Louis it’s just loud – lots of food, lots of laughing, lots of cooking”.
“One of my first modelling jobs was my Topshop campaign eight years ago. My grandmother brought me over from St
Louis. I was young and shy and super nervous to be on set of Topshop. Luckily I was shooting with Jourdan Dunn and we became overnight best friends. I think she had me in stitches the whole time we were shooting.”
