Too tall for your jeans and tired of trying to find a pair that look and feel amazing? Karlie Kloss feels your pain, and she’s begun a collaboration with FRAME Denim to solve the problem by creating a line of jeans for tall women. Read on to find out more.
“For every longstanding Kate Moss for Topshop partnership (where dresses have sold out within two hours online), or Elle Macpherson Intimates label (which has garnered a clutch of entrepreneurial awards), there’s been a blink-and-you-miss-it Abbey Lee Kershawcapsule for ManiaMania or Jessica Stam collection for Rag & Bone.
Models successfully moonlighting as designers may not be anything new, but Karlie Kloss insists she wasn’t jumping on any bandwagon with her FRAME Denim Forever Karlie jeans collaboration with friends Jens Grede and Erik Torstensson.
Rather her first move into design, for which she’s co-created two excessively long jeans styles—flared and skinny in light and dark washes, each with 40-inch inseams—was born out of necessity, not ambition. “I’m freakishly tall, so finding pants that fit is something I’ve struggled with my whole life,” bemoans the gazelle-like six-foot-one beauty. “My secret to pulling off too-short jeans has always been to pair them with boots . . . and I really rocked the flood-pant trend for as long as I could!” Keep Reading…
Supermodel Karlie Kloss kicks serious ass on a California beach in Juicy Couture‘s debut fashion film for Fall 2012. “All elements, including the music, setting, cast and props were carefully selected to help interpret the New California cool Juicy Girl.” The brand has adopted #GirlsKickAss to promote the film and celebrate the current and unprecedented moment for women and girls. For every tweet to @juicycouture with the #GirlsKickAss hashtag, Juicy Couture will donate $1 to Step Up Women’s Network.
As part of a multimedia effort, Juicy Couture wants to “create a playful, unapologetic fashion film set against the backdrop of iconic California,” said LeAnn Nealz, president and chief creative officer of Juicy Couture. For more information, go to Juicy Couture online.
We’re loving this sunny outdoor shot of Cara Delevingne posing with Karlie Kloss at Coachella a few weeks ago, wearing a pair of chic Rag & Bone Tux Skinny Jeans in khaki. It took a while for this style to grow on us, but after sifting through hundreds of intensely bohemian festival street style shots, these tame, classy jeans are a welcome sight!
There’s no way around it: Karlie Kloss is très adorable and we just can’t get enough, especially when she’s rocking denim. The seasoned model stars in the January 2012 Free People catalog, and we’re absolutely obsessed with the outfits she’s wearing whilst roaming the streets of New York City with pretzel, hot dog, and MetroCard in tow. Why? It’s a simple equation. Denim vests, chambray pinafore dresses, polished dark-wash shorts, and a gorgeous model, awash in the glow of one of the greatest cities in the world–what’s not to love?
