Karlie Kloss svelte for Self

Karlie Kloss shows off her killer body on the front of Self magazine.

Proving she's more than just a pretty face, the model demonstrates her athletic ability for the publication, including hurdling and high jumping.

Karlie even credits her sporty side for helping with work.

"I feel like I'm perpetually in motion, which I love. The reason why I've had a career is because I can move," she explained.

Fans are used to seeing the 22-year-old wearing very little on the Victoria's Secret runway, but she decided to hang up her Angel wings earlier this year.

For Self, Karlie wows in an array of sports clothes, including a skin-tight blue jacket with red stripes, grey underwear and Nike trainers as she flies over a hurdle.

"In an industry that once embraced fragile thinness, Kloss has done things her way, helping usher in an age of ripped abs on the Victoria’s Secret runway," writes Meredith Bryan in the article.

It's not all about the body with Karlie though; she's got brains too and will be attending New York University this autumn.

“I want to study computer science. I want to study psychology. I’m fascinated by space. I want to study art history," she smiled.

If modelling and studying weren't enough, Karlie also launched her own YouTube channel yesterday. The videos will go behind the scenes of her life, including runway shows, photo shoots and her day-to-day errands.

"Looking forward to experiencing the world of YouTube! Can’t wait to bring you along every step of the way (sic)," she posted on Twitter.
