Video: Karlie Kloss Brags About Her ’12-Foot-Long-Legs’ After Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

After closing the Victoria’s Secret fashion show this past week, a drunk on power (and maybe a bit of bubbly) Karlie Kloss gave an interview that might not go down in history as her best. When asked what she’d done to prepare for the big show, she said this:

I kinda stuck to my normal daily regimen. I’m a healthy person, I’m always pretty athletic, I don’t know… And I’m 19, so, I don’t know. And I have legs that go on for days, you know, I have 12 foot long legs. So, I don’t know.

I think you do know, Karlie. I’m pretty sure you just spelled out your genetic blessings right there. Way to be humble during your time in the spotlight.

Except…I’m pretty sure there’s no good way for a model to answer this question. If a model says she follows a crazy diet, we feel sad for her, and mad at the industry for driving an already gorgeous and thin person to such extremes. If she says she parties and eats BBQ, we get annoyed that she’s rubbing her natural skinniness in our faces (and/or maybe lying a little bit). I almost like Karlie’s answer better than any of these, because she acknowledges she has a “daily regimen” to stay extremely thin and toned, while also copping to the other things working in her favor. I think people are less likely to beat themselves up over not looking like supermodels if it’s clear their look is a combination of genetic gifts (it’s not like you can diet your way to taller/skinnier genes) and an intensive workout regimen beyond what most normal people have time for in their lives.

      How exactly can you be humble about your genetic blessings? I think her honestly was great. She know’s she is where she is because of genetics: she’s super tall with a fast metabolism. She’s a lucky girl.

      I also think her reply was great. She knows she’s nineteen with long legs and that’s why she’s doing this!

    • Celia

      I’m all about healthy body images. You rock, kiddo.

      I think she is a great great fashion model. But I don’t like the direction VS is going. She was way too skinny for the show…and once more we are faced with the plight of what an ideal body is.

      me and all my friends said she was too skinny but if she gain like 20 lbs she will look kind of better. The vs fashion shows are changing because the models are losing their curves which i only watch for the beautiful curvy women

    • Julia

      I think she is not humble at all and she is just showing off. Personally, i dont like her for VS.

    • Nadia

      I Love Karlie, She is really cute and kind person. I Think she’s so honest to say that. And why if the skinny girl do VS Show. VS is just not find for sexy and curves girls. They are find girls with great personality too. And Karlie has great personality, so i think she match to be VS Girls. GO KARLIE!

      I a model and i definetly think shes too thin for VS she just a real bag of bones you know, I love her and i think shes beautiful but i dont think she has a perfect body and shes really putting out a negative message to all people that support VS wiyth her insanely skinny body.

      She has a unique face for couture fashion, but honestly she doesn’t fit in VS. The Victoria Secret models are unique looking but also have very very gorgeous faces. Her face is unique but alright. Nothing very pretty about it in my opinion. She also looks too young. She should just stick to high fashion.
