Supermodel Karlie Kloss teams up with fashion and celebrity photographer Kai Z Feng for the stunning new British ELLE Cover story. For the session Kloss was masterfully styled by Fashion Editor Anne-Marie Curtis in Spring Summer 2016 coveted pieces from the likes of Versace, Jonathan Saunders, Lanvin, Mary Katrantzou, Gucci and Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane to name a few.

I certainly relate to this desire to `do it all’ and I’m sure many of you reading this do too, because for us millennials the pressure to take advantage of every possible opportunity that comes our way is real. We are indeed ‘generation slashie’ – but Karlie takes it to the extreme as a model/entrepreneur/philanthropist/ student/coder. She agrees that this endless drive to be `more than’ can be exhausting for any of us. Karlie thinks back to the ELLE cover shoot: ‘OK, so I’m jet lagged to start with. We’re shooting and I have a speech I need to write because I’m presenting an award to Nick Knight at the British Fashion Awards later that evening, so I’m nervous about that. Then I have this [school] paper that’s hanging over my head that I’ve neglected to write. And I’m thinking I need to post a cover that just came out today on my Instagram, and I need to meet this person and I have this 10-page story and a cover to shoot right now and it’s all really important to me…’ – from ELLE UK

Incidentally, she calls herself a feminist. But a feminist in the way most people who don’t want to be branded bra-burners and man-haters do, by saying `I mean, any modern woman who cares about equality is a feminist in some way, shape or form.’ – from ELLE UK

In the fashion world Karlie agrees ‘there’s this really wonderful moment right now that’s celebratory of difference and diversity’. She says, ‘I hope it’s not a trend, because it’s the way that women feel most beautiful, when they’re celebrating their uniqueness, their individuality. There are a lot of girls now with beautiful hair that isn’t being flat-ironed to look exactly like the girl next to her in the fashion show.’ She believes this proves that ‘authenticity is what actually resonates with people. In fashion right now it’s about taking that fourth wall down, and for models it’s really freeing.’ – from ELLE UK
