Behind her cover wink for The Q+A Issue, Karlie Kloss stars in a 12 page editorial shot by Matt Jones and styled by Sara Moonves. As she posed, preened, stretched and smiled to leave us swooning, we enjoyed a quick fire round of why and how questioning with the Chicago-born babe.
Name/Age/Star sign: Karlie Elizabeth Kloss, 20.5.
Describe yourself in 5 words… Tall, curious, sensitive, stubborn and passionate.
Being young is all about asking questions… I LOVE to ask questions and find out Why and How things happen. I am incredibly curious about everything, I don’t know if that is because I am young or just because of the way my brain is wired, I just want to know all there is to know!
Is there one burning question you’ve always wanted to ask the world? Something that bugs you, or you don’t understand? If so what is it and what would you want the answer to be? I would love to know if there are other life forms out there within our galaxy or our solar system. And I’d love to live long enough to maybe even experience space travel and perhaps even meet one? (LOL maybe thats a little crazy!…!) But it has just always bugged me not knowing if any other life forms are out there. Hopefully I’ll live long enough to find out the answer!
What’s the best thing about being alive? Learning and experiencing all that there is in this world! I feel so blessed to have a job that allows me to travel the world and work with incredibly talented people. My job enables me to see and try and do SO many things that I probably wouldn’t have had the opportunity (at least at such a young age) to experience otherwise.
What makes you happy? Being surrounded by the loved ones in my life.
What makes you smile? My 3 gorgeous sisters.
