Editorial: Karlie Kloss by Bruce Weber for Porter Magazine


1A SUPERMODEL AND AN ADORABLE PUPPY, along with a couple of palm trees and sunshine, are all that is needed for a perfect summer editorial. If the supermodel is the amazonian, long-legged and multifaceted Karlie Kloss, who isn’t only a muse to some of the most celebrated designers, but has also set up a philanthropic line of cookies, and is about to attend NYU to study computer coding, it becomes an impossibly interesting conversation.
2Kloss appears perfectly put together standing on the porch of pastel-coloured houses wearing yellow gingham-printed dresses and floral midi-skirts, swinging on a swing set in a white kaftan, and cuddling an adorable puppy at the sea shore. It seems almost impossible that one of the most successful models of our time, who is constantly being compared to the legendary 90s supermodels, is such a well-rounded individual, seeking perfection in all facets of her life, from business projects to intellectual development. Her venture to remain a well-rounded person who is miles ahead of everybody else should serve as a constant reminder to work on ourselves every day, and combine doing what we love with challenges and new endeavours. —Victoria03 4 05 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13Images via Visual Optimism

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
