Karlie Kloss Has Come So Far Since Her First NYFW Runway 10 Years Ago
Karlie Kloss has walked catwalks all over the world, but even a pro supermodel like her had to start somewhere, and that somewhere was a 2007 Calvin Klein show.
Much like young up-and-comer Kaia Gerber (who walked in her first show—also Calvin Klein—on Thursday), Kloss hit her first catwalk when she was young enough to be a sophomore in high school and hasn't slowed down.
In the 10 years since then, Kloss has come a long way, and in a reflective Instagram post, she showed that she knows it.
"It's hard to believe that 10 years ago this week, I came to NYC for my very first NYFW. After that 20-minute runway show, my life changed," she wrote Thursday.
"I couldn't have fathomed the next 10 years of adventures that were to come, it has far exceeded my wildest dreams. I am eternally grateful to @calvinklein for giving me my first chance, I will never forget it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone that has been part of this wild ride. #TBT ❤😊."
We're pretty grateful we get to witness her "wild ride" as well. Next up for the model? Hitting the Victoria's Secret runway in November. Because, of course, Kloss deserves angel wings.
