Kar­lie Kloss In 24 Hours

A day in the life of the su­per­model and so­cial en­tre­pre­neur.

6.30AM I usu­ally wake up around this time. Given how much I’m on the road, my phone typ­i­cally dou­bles as my alarm clock. I aim for seven to nine hours of sleep ev­ery night—trav­el­ling so much has given me a lot of ap­pre­ci­a­tion for a good night’s sleep! The first thing I do when I wake up is have a large glass of wa­ter with ap­ple cider vine­gar and lemon. Then I’ll brush my teeth and wash my face. Skin­care is def­i­nitely a pri­or­ity. In the morn­ing, I start by wash­ing my face with a gen­tle ex­fo­liant. Then I use a jade roller to re­duce any puffi­ness and fin­ish my rou­tine by ap­ply­ing an SPF-rich mois­turiser. I also make sure to drink a lot of wa­ter through­out the day to keep my skin hy­drated. 7AM I be­lieve self-love is the strong­est su­per­power you can have and what you put into to­day is what you get out. I love start­ing my day off with a good sweat. Then, I head to The Elk, one of my fa­vorite places to grab a cup of cof­fee in the morn­ing af­ter my work­out. 9AM I typ­i­cally eat break­fast around 9am. De­pend­ing on how much time I have in the morn­ing, I’ll ei­ther have an egg white omelette with av­o­cado and hot sauce or a ve­gan choco­late pro­tein smoothie with al­mond milk and wa­ter. 9.45AM If I have time, it’ll take me about 45 min­utes to an hour to get ready, but I can pull it off in 20 min­utes if I’m rush­ing out the door. My go-to look is high-waisted jeans, a tucked-in tee with a blazer, and ei­ther my Stan Smith sneak­ers or booties. My style is tai­lored with a slight edge. I like wear­ing simple sil­hou­ettes and adding jew­ellery, like Swarovski’s fit choker, to give my look a lit­tle per­son­al­ity. I al­most never leave home with­out wear­ing a com­bi­na­tion of rings, neck­laces, and bracelets. I grav­i­tate to­wards simple, dain­tier pieces that are easy to layer. Rings are def­i­nitely my favourite. I love simple band rings that are easy to stack and mix and match. If I’m jet-lagged and tired, I wear items that are com­fort­able and easy to pair to­gether. When I’m more en­er­gised, I get more cre­ative with what I’m wear­ing and take more fash­ion risks. I like to keep my make-up rou­tine pretty min­i­mal: I usu­ally stick to just wear­ing a BB cream with vo­lu­mis­ing mas­cara and a touch of lip balm or lip gloss. 11AM I try to med­i­tate be­fore a big day of work. Even if it’s just for a few min­utes, it helps me re­lax and re­fo­cus. Lately, I’ve also been re­ly­ing on the new Haim al­bum to get me cam­era-ready; any­thing by Bey­oncé also al­ways does the trick.

For me, a good photo shoot in­volves good mu­sic, good com­pany, and the freedom to try some­thing new and be cre­ative on set. 12PM My lunch break is al­ways sched­ule-de­pen­dant, but I usu­ally try for noon. Some of my favourite restau­rants are Egg Shop or Two Hands. The food is al­ways fresh and cre­ative. I try to stick to clean pro­teins and veg­gies for lunch, so I love hav­ing fresh sushi or a salad from Sweet­green. This keeps me feel­ing en­er­gised through­out the day. I’m a pescatar­ian, so the only meat I eat is fish—no red meat or poul­try. 2PM Swarovski’s Hol­i­day shoot was so much fun! Boy George DJ’ed, and Jour­dan Dunn, Fei Fei Sun, Naomi Camp­bell, and I had one big dance party while be­ing decked out in crys­tals. It was def­i­nitely one I’ll re­mem­ber. I’ve worked with Naomi Camp­bell a few times be­fore, but it’s al­ways so sur­real get­ting to see your idol in ac­tion. I’ve looked up to her since the early days of my ca­reer, and I find my­self learn­ing some­thing new from her ev­ery time we’re on set to­gether. Christy Turling­ton has also been a long-time role model of mine. She re­de­fined what it means to be a su­per­model, show­ing me that you can have a suc­cess­ful ca­reer in fash­ion while pur­su­ing your other in­ter­ests and pas­sions. I al­ways thought I would fol­low in my dad’s foot­steps and be­come a doc­tor. Grow­ing up, I was fas­ci­nated by math and sci­ence, and medicine seemed like a great way to com­bine those in­ter­ests while also help­ing oth­ers. But get­ting the chance to work with all of my friends on-set is in­cred­i­ble. I’m so grate­ful to call this my job. The Swarovski brand holds a lot of sen­ti­men­tal value for my fam­ily and me. My par­ents and grand­par­ents would of­ten gift me Swarovski pieces for spe­cial oc­ca­sions. It’s a very full-cir­cle mo­ment to be able to work with the brand to­day. 6.30PM Once a shoot is done, I take off my make-up from set and check back in with the world, an­swer­ing my re­cent e-mails and texts. I try to limit how much time I spend on so­cial me­dia. Dur­ing the week­ends, I in­dulge in sleep­ing in and un­plug­ging from my phone for a while—I turn my phone off on Fri­day and Satur­day nights to give my­self a break. When­ever I can, I go home to St. Louis to spend time with fam­ily. Their love and sup­port keep me grounded. 7.30PM My shoots gen­er­ally wrap up be­fore din­ner time, so I tend to eat around this time. I usu­ally have a clean pro­tein, like sal­mon, with grilled veg­gies and greens. For din­ner, one of my favourites is Lor­ing Place in Green­wich Vil­lage. The crispy, spicy cau­li­flower there is in­cred­i­ble! While I try to eat healthy, well-bal­anced meals, I def­i­nitely have a sweet tooth and love in­dulging in Halo Top ice cream or dark choco­late. I love bak­ing, so dessert is my spe­cialty. My gram’s gin­ger­snap cookie recipe is one of my favourites. I also like to ex­per­i­ment with dif­fer­ent ve­gan bak­ing recipes, and love putting a healthy spin on some of my favourite cook­ies and baked goods. My other hob­bies are cod­ing and boxing. 9PM If I have time, I love tak­ing a re­lax­ing bath with es­sen­tial oils or bath salts and a nice scented can­dle. I use a gen­tle cleanser to wash my face. Af­ter that, I put on a hy­drat­ing face mask. I re­cently dyed my hair plat­inum, which re­quires extra main­te­nance to keep healthy, so putting on a Christophe Robin hair mask has be­come an es­sen­tial part of my night-time rou­tine. 10PM On week­days, I like to be in bed by 10 or 11pm. My bed­room is a sanc­tu­ary, so I keep it cozy, min­i­mal, and clean. I love read­ing be­fore I go to bed. It’s re­ally re­lax­ing and helps clear my head. My all-time favourite book is The Al­chemist by Paulo Coelho. Or, if I’m tired, I fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pil­low.
