KARLIE KLOSS’S PERFECT DAY
The model, coding advocate and Estée Lauder global spokesmodel/brand ambassador dishes on her day, from skincare to sushi
6:45AM The first thing I do is drink a big glass of water with apple cider vinegar and lemon, followed by a smoothie with vegan chocolate protein powder, Califia [Farms] almond milk and Moon Juice supplements. Skincare is a huge part of my morning routine, so I wash my face and apply Estée Lauder’s Revitalizing Supreme+ [Cell Power Creme] moisturiser. Having a simple routine helps me get moving. 7:30AM I head to Dogpound gym in Newyork City for my morning workout with my trainer, Kirk Myers. I try to arrive a few minutes early so I can warm up on the stairmaster. I like to listen to music during my warm-up, and have a few go-to Spotify playlists with a lot of Cardi B and Childish Gambino.the rest of my workout is cardio and full-body strength training exercises, and afterwards I make sure to stretch with my foam roller to avoid soreness. Kirk’s workouts are always tough, but I love the challenge and always feel so accomplished and energised afterwards. 9:00AM After showering, I listen to a podcast on my way to the Klossy office — either The Tim Ferriss Show or How I Built This from NPR. I make a quick stop at the La Colombe that’s next to our office building for my usual coffee — an iced decaf with almond milk and stevia. 10:00AM My days vary week to week, but usually include a mix of meetings, fittings and shoots. Especially in the summer, I try to walk or bike between appointments for some much-needed time outside, which also helps me reset and clear my head. Right now, we’re in the middle of our Kode With Klossy summer coding camps, so there’s a lot of planning and travelling to keep track of.this year, we’ve significantly expanded our program to 50 coding camps in 25 cities, which will reach 1000 girls across the US. I Facetime into one of our Kode With Klossy camps to hear about the projects our scholars are working on. I’ll also travel later in the week to visit our St. Louis and Los Angeles camps. It’s always so inspiring to watch the girls progress over the two-week camps — they
not only improve their coding skills, but also gain lasting friendships and build their confidence. 2:00PM Our New York City Kode With Klossy camps are being hosted in a Wework this year, so I head downtown to check out the space before our scholars arrive in coming weeks. On my way, I grab a Sweetgreen salad with vegies or a grilled salmon from Sant Ambroeus for a late lunch. Both are right outside my office. 3:30PM Klossy Productions is working on a few Estée Lauder beauty videos for my Youtube channel, and today we’re filming something fun for [northern hemisphere] summer. Ever since I was a teenager, it’s been my dream to work with such an iconic brand, and I’m so humbled that the moment has officially come. I can’t give too much away about the video yet, but you’ll have to check it out. 7:00PM My meetings are wrapped up for the day, so it’s time to meet some friends for dinner. My favourite go-to spots are Loring Place and Lure sushi bar. 8:30PM I have a Facetime date with my mom, who lives in my hometown of St. Louis.we catch up and plan for my next visit home.as grateful as I am for all of the countries and cities I’ve been able to visit throughout my career, there’s truly no better feeling than relaxing at home with my family, friends and my dog, Joe. 11:30PM I try to head to bed before midnight. I’m a huge fan of face masks, so before getting into bed I wash my face with a gentle cleanser and apply Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Powerfoil Mask. I use it once a week to keep my skin refreshed and hydrated.after about 10 minutes, I remove the mask and hop into bed to catch up on emails and texts.
