For someone who was only 15 years old when she made her catwalk debut, it is truly amazing that Karlie Kloss has managed to stick around and build her influence in an industry that is so fickle. Karlie sat down for a profile with CBS News and talked about the industry that will love an It girl for one season, and then fail to cast her the next. “It’s kind of shocking how much turnover there is in my industry,” she said. “But the reason why I haven’t burnt out is because I keep myself — I feed myself with so many other things.”
Karlie’s Warby Parker range, Momofuku cookie line and Frame Denim jeans line are definitely keeping her busy. But the 22-year-old model isn’t stopping there. She plans to enroll as a full-time student at NYU this fall.
Karlie says she’ll still be working through her time in school, studying on set and while she travels. It’s a lot of work, but a good education when you’re already a successful model is only an advantage. Just ask Tyra Banks.
But in all this, one crucial question remains: Will BFF Taylor Swift help Karlie with her studies?
