How were you discovered? At a charity fashion show benefiting a friend’s family in St. Louis.
Do you think you would be a ballerina if you weren’t a model? That was one of the many dreams I had when I was younger, unfortunately as I continued to grow that dream changed as I became too tall to dance professionally.
What’s been your career highlight to date? I am beyond grateful for all the amazing experiences I’ve had over the years but honestly I am always finding myself excited about new highlights, challenges and goals I am constantly setting for myself. There are still so many more things I want to achieve and accomplish in my career!
Who are your favourite models?I am incredibly inspired by Christy Turlington.
What posters were on your bedroom wall as a kid?I had ballet pictures on my wall, one of my favorites was this Degas print I absolutely loved.
Are you in love?With life ;)
Why did you cut your hair?I wanted a change and when Vogue approached me about the story with Garren and Patrick I felt like it was the perfect time to do something new with my appearance.
Where can we get our hands on some Karlie Kookies?At the moment you can get Karlie’s Kookies at any of the Milk Bar stores in New York or online from theMilk Bar website, which can be shipped internationally.
If you could be photographed by anyone past or present who would you choose?I would have loved to work with Irving Penn, Avedon, or Helmut Newton.
