Karlie Kloss hanging up Victoria’s Secret angel wings
Victoria’s Secret beauty Karlie Kloss is stepping down as a model for the lingerie brand to focus on her college studies.
Taylor Swift’s best friend will begin classes at New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study this fall and the 22 year old has decided to cut down on her workload to make time to hit the books.
Kloss has been working with the top underwear brand since 2011 and was appointed a Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2013.
She recently revealed her plans to go back to school in a Vogue magazine interview, admitting it’s “something that I’ve wanted to do for a very long time”, but insisted she wasn’t stepping away from the spotlight completely.
Kloss, who was accepted into NYU after former alumna and fellow model Christy Turlington Burns penned a letter of recommendation on her behalf, will continue to work with fashion executives at firms like Kate Spade New York and L’Oreal Paris.
She adds, “I’m incredibly ambitious and have lots of goals within my career that I’m not slowing down on anytime soon.”
Karlie Kloss is hanging up her Victoria's Secret angel wings to attend New York University in the fall. The 22-year-old model has been with the brand since 2011, and while she says she's not giving up modelling completely, she wanted more time to focus on her studies. Here's a look back at Karlie and Victoria.
