ED’S LET­TER

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Contents - Sar­rah

Un­less you hap­pen to have un­der­taken a ter­tiary de­gree in cod­ing, or have set up a schol­ar­ship pro­gram for young women, then it’s prob­a­bly un­wise to ques­tion the in­tel­lec­tual stamina of a leggy su­per­model. Kar­lie Kloss, who jug­gles her day job as one of the world’s high­est­paid mod­els with the es­say-writ­ing de­mands of a univer­sity un­der­grad, doesn’t have much time for the an­ti­quated the­ory that beau­ti­ful women can’t be smart. Which is why Stel­lar chose the sand­stone grounds of The Univer­sity of Syd­ney as the lo­ca­tion for our ex­clu­sive photo shoot with Kloss dur­ing her re­cent visit to Aus­tralia to launch David Jones’s new-sea­son col­lec­tion. As she points out, in­tel­li­gence does not only mean “book smarts”, but also “street smarts”, and cover star Dannii Minogue is cer­tainly ev­i­dence of that. Hav­ing worked con­sis­tently since the not-so-ripe old age of seven, the 45-year-old has not only nav­i­gated the pit­falls of grow­ing up in the spot­light with good hu­mour and tenac­ity, but has clearly emerged wiser than ever.
