When my colleague and I were in Paris during the Fashionweek in 2008, we took a little trip on the ‘bateau mouche’ along the Seine. A young model that we recognized from the shows was also on the boat, accompanied by an older guy. We were both hoping that the guy was either her dad or her bodyguard…(we think her dad, cause you don’t hug your bodyguard).
This young girl was Karlie Kloss. Now 16 years old and the face of Marc Jacobs’ new fragrance ‘Lola’. A good choice, because she has this fresh, Lolita-kinda-look about her. But she’s also a rising supermodel. She just did the Armani Prive, Gaultier, Givenchy and Valentino Couture shows and we ‘ll probably hear more about this St Louis beauty. (Karine)
