She’s been a model-to-watch for seasons now, but this is the first time Karlie Kloss has done the entire Fashion Week circuit plus red carpet award shows (the Oscars). Now, she’s walking Paris runways and running the Paris Half Marathon like it was nothing. There are even rumors that she’ll be starring in Zoolander 2, after Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller did an epic walk-off at Valentino’s show yesterday. So, how does she do it all while hitting each and every must-go event and show? We caught up with the top model in Paris to ask about her stay-pretty tricks. Hint: It starts with healthy eating.
theFashionSpot: The shows, the red carpets, the cameras in your face backstage — how do you do it?
Karlie Kloss: It’s been pretty hectic, I’m not going to lie. It’s the first time I’ve done all of the cities back-to-back. I’m really grateful, though, to be in all of the shows I’ve walked in and so happy to attend the red carpets. I look at some of the girls here who are doing their first season and I’m remembering what it was like during my first seasons. We’re all really exhausted no matter what our level of experience as a model. It’s not easy — although it might look that way.
tFS: How do you keep your energy up?
KK: It seems simple, but it’s really important to eat. And eat healthy meals. I think that’s the hardest thing to remember when you’re running around. There’s barely any time and it’s challenging to take care of yourself. I try really hard to eat well. I’m vegetarian and try to stick to my eating habits wherever I am in the world.
tFS: What’s the product or habit that helps you look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed when maybe you’re not?
KK: I think a really, really good concealer. Exercise — going for runs always helps me de-stress and stay fit. Sleep is also my favorite thing. Lots of sleep. I’m going to try to take at least a little break after this season — some sort of vacation. There’s so many other projects that are coming up for me…it’s important to stay balanced.
