Karlie Kloss Doesn't Think 'Model' Is A Real Job Title
Karlie Kloss may have been modeling since she was 15 years old, but she doesn't want you to think that it's her life's work or anything. At least, that's what she recently told Vogue. The supermodel/dancer/philanthropist wants you to know that she doesn't consider "model" a real job title. In fact, she'd prefer if you referred to her as athlete or dancer, but even those won't really do.
Here's exactly what she said:
"I treat myself more as an athlete than just a model. I love to challenge myself physically and mentally. But I'm not a professional athlete, I'm not a professional dancer, I'm not a professional anything; I have never considered modeling an actual job title. I have yet to determine what my job actually is but, yeah, modeling is a fun and funny gig."
There it is, ladies and gentlemen, While Kloss may be one of the most sought-after models in the world, strutting down the runway for some of the most renowned fashion designers, she considers these just "fun gigs." Maybe it's because she's only 21 years old and she truly has a lifetime to figure out what she "really" wants to do. Or maybe it's because when she's not strutting her stuff, she's busy building a small empire. On top of having her own line of cookies at Momofuku (with proceeds going to FEED), Kloss also works with countless charities (for example, she raised $58.000 for AIDS research recently). It's no wonder she considers parading around in fabulous clothes and lingerie as merely "fun."
Although Kloss may have no idea what her future career has in store for her, she's working hard to figure it out. It was revealed early last month that Kloss had enrolled herself at Harvard Business School. Kloss told The Daily Mail last year that she wanted to study business so she could learn how to run a successful company. Karlie Kloss, CEO? It's entirely possible. We're rooting for you, Kloss!
