Karlie Kloss may be a fierce supermodel with legs for days, but she’s also a super adorable teenager from St. Louis. The W cover girl is featured in W Editor at Large Lynn Hirschberg’s latest “Screen Test,” in which she discusses being a teen model, being forced by Carine Roitfeld to do ballet at a Prada store, and what high school was like, which wasn’t very long ago for the 19-year-old.
Her absurdly long legs may be her supermodel signature now, but towering over everyone wasn’t always such a positive asset in ballet class or at prom, where her “hysterical” date was apparently “a solid foot” shorter than her. She also used to commute back and forth from St. Louis to New York on an almost daily basis in order to keep up with school. Super, indeed. Still, it’s hard to feel bad for her given where she is now and how bubbly and cheerful she is while recounting it all in this video. Could she be any more charming and adorable? Watch below.
