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.
