Karlie Kloss didn't want to be a model
Karlie Kloss didn't want to be a model while growing up.
The 23-year-old catwalk star didn't consider a career as a model when she was younger and the move came as a surprise because she'd been so focused on becoming a dancer.
She admitted: "I didn't grow up wanting to be a model. I didn't think about fashion at all.
"That was all I wanted to be, a dancer. But, I just kept growing up and up and up! I lived in tights and a bun."
Now she has forged a successful career as a Victoria's Secret angel, she's hoping to establish a business empire and is currently undertaking a degree at New York University because she thinks it's "sexy to learn".
In her cover shoot interview for the December edition of Vogue magazine, she explained: "About two years ago I started to think about what happens to me next. I'm a 23-year-old model and I want to think less about my looks and more about my future, and that involves my brain. I want to run companies, have a business future.
"Call me a nerd, but I love coding, the language of computers. Understanding coding is a superpower. I met some tech entrepreneurs and they are billionaires through learning this stuff. I'm so competitive with myself and I am fascinated by the language of technology so I decided to be part of the conversation ... I think it's sexy to learn this stuff; it enables and it empowers both sexes."
