Nowadays, we know Karlie Kloss as the code-loving, overall-wearing supermodel BFF of Taylor Swift. But long before she was a Swiftie, Kloss was a gangly makeup-free 13-year-old on her first modeling shoot, and we have the pics to prove it.
The model shared a belated throwback to her Twitter account today of her very first headshots, and you almost won’t recognize the former Victoria’s Secret Angel. “Still can’t believe these are from my very first trip to Chicago with my Mom… 10 years ago,” she captioned the post.

Already 5-foot-9, the young model posed in a black tank top and dark jeans in the series of poses, proving she was one of the early adopters of the now-popular fish gape pose.
So before you get jealous of Kloss’s next supermodel-filled selfie, remember that every fashion model was once a gangly teen in a tight, ribbed tank top.
