Karlie Kloss honours Prince through fashion

Karlie Kloss wore purple to the TIME 100 Gala in tribute to Prince last night (26.04.16).

The 23-year-old model - who was accompanied to the glitzy bash by boyfriend Joshua Kushner - showcased the late singer's trademark hue in a form-fitting Victoria Beckham gown and admitted she had chosen the dress in "honour" of the star, who was found dead at his Paisley Park home last week.

She told PEOPLE: "I'm wearing my purple in [Prince's] honour."

The stunning star also revealed her favourite Prince song was the appropriately-named 'Purple Rain'.

Karlie - who is an advocate for girls learning computer coding and has her own Koding with Karlie scholarship programme - also admitted she'd love to build an app which will help her choose what to wear.

She told TIME: "I would love to build an app that could tell you what to wear every day so you wouldn't have to worry about it.

"In my scholarship programme we built an app that worked like the closet from 'Clueless'. So useful."

Karlie was joined at the glamorous event in New York by a number of her fellow TIME100 Most Influential honourees, including Caitlyn Jenner, Melissa McCarthy, Trevor Noah, Ricardo Tisci, Lewis Hamilton and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Honourees Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande performed for the star-studded audience.
