Happy birthday to Karlie Kloss, who turns 24 today! While the supermodel rose to stardom with her catwalk strut, we also appreciate the New York University student as a baker, a YouTube vlogger, a mentor to girls who code—and, of course, BFF to Taylor Swift. When it comes to showing the world their bond, no one beats Kloss and Swift.
Their relationship story is a tale for the ages (well the social media age): Supermodel meets world famous pop star and bond over cookies, clothes, and walking in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
It all started back in 2013 when Swift expressed wanting to meet the model and bake cookies with her in an interview. Kloss responded on Twitter with an enthusiastic "Your kitchen or mine?" Followed by their joint appearance at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show that December, the look-alike girls took their perfectly photogenic friendship to the masses when they shared photos from an epic road trip to Big Sur. Complete with posing with signs and hugging selfies, their friendship was cemented by writing each other's names in the sand. Since then, it's been more fashion shows, baking parties, music videos, and welcoming more ladies into the girl squad.
