Karlie turns Secret Agent for DvF
Karlie Kloss felt like a Bond girl while shooting her new Diane von Furstenberg campaign.
The 22-year-old model is the star of the label's fall adverts, including a short film created by Peter Lindbergh. She appears as a spy who manages to switch between day and night roles thanks to her DVF Secret Agent bag - a new accessory which has a pouch section at the front which can be changed for different looks.
"It was so much fun to shoot,” Karlie laughed to WWD. “It felt like I was the Bond girl. I don’t know if I’d consider this acting, but if it counts, maybe I’ll send it onto the next James Bond director."
It's not all about the bag though, with the model also showcasing various outfits from the fashion house's upcoming season. In one still, she's seen wearing a navy and blue spotted dress with a slim burgundy belt and dark shades, holding the Secret Agent bag up as photographers try to snap her picture.
It's a busy time for the star, who has given up her role as Victoria's Secret Angel so she can go to college later this year. She's also launching a YouTube channel, taking a coding short course and won't stop strutting runways globally either. Already she's featuring in Fall ads for the lines of Kate Spade, Versace and L’Ore?al, with many in the industry of the belief she will have true longevity.
One of those is Trey Laird, who is the chief executive officer and chief creative officer of Laird + Partners - which worked on the DVF ads.
"She’s having a moment. She’s such a great model, but also more than that, a great person and smart collaborator," Trey enthused.
That doesn't mean Karlie is getting carried away though. Asked where she sees herself in a decade and she'd only say she hopes she is happy and still working in fashion, as it's the industry which really inspires her.
