MODEL AND ENTREPRENEUR, KODE WITH KLOSSY
Fashion model Karlie Kloss was first approached by talent scouts at the age of 13 in a shopping mall in St Louis, Missouri, where she was brought up. She became famous following her first catwalk appearance for Calvin Klein in 2007, when she was 15. Since then, she has appeared on magazine covers and in advertising campaigns, as well as in numerous fashion shows.
Proceeds from sales of the Karlie’s Kookies she devised are used to provide meals for children in need all over the world through the FEED Projects charity. Her Kode with Karlie scholarship programme, launched in 2015 in partnership with the Flatiron School in New York, helps teenaged girls learn to code. She also launched the Klossy YouTube channel in 2015, and began a course at New York University.
