Model Portrait: Karlie Kloss


Photographer Gabrielle Revere spent much of last summer shooting 19-year-old model, Karlie Kloss, for a LIFE magazine portfolio. Of the Missouri-born beauty, Gabrielle says, “Even with such a high profile existence, the teenage girl remains—excited to offer you a glass of homemade lemonade or a seat on her front porch swing.” Here, a selection of photos from the series, three of which are exclusive to Wmagazine.com.
