A VERY KLOSSY CHRISTMAS Kar­lie Kloss shines as the star of Swarovski’s Christmas cam­paign – so it's a good thing she loves the hol­i­day sea­son

ELLE (Malaysia) - - STYLE FEATURE -

Christy Turling­ton is both an in­cred­i­ble friend and men­tor to me. She re­de­fined what it means to be a su­per­model, and showed me that it was pos­si­ble to have a suc­cess­ful fash­ion ca­reer while also pur­su­ing my other pas­sions. My mum and Gram have also al­ways been my two big­gest heroes and role mod­els. My Gram was the ma­tri­arch of my fam­ily and one of the strongest women I’ve ever known. My mum raised three girls, beat stage four breast cancer, and had a suc­cess­ful ca­reer. These are just some of the bril­liant women in my life. I al­ways say yes to a chal­lenge. Right now, I’m train­ing for my first marathon, which has been an awe­some chal­lenge, both phys­i­cally and men­tally. Noth­ing com­pares to the strength and self-con­fi­dence that come from ac­com­plish­ing some­thing you never thought you could do. We’re all bril­liant in our own way; we all har­bour bril­liance within us, and this cam­paign is about cel­e­brat­ing that in­di­vid­ual strength and unique­ness. Ev­ery year, I go back home to St. Louis for a lot of cel­e­brat­ing, bak­ing, and eat­ing with my fam­ily and close friends. I adore sweater weather, so for ca­sual days I’ll pair a comfy sweater with leather leg­gings or jeans and a mix of gold and sil­ver rings and bracelets. For hol­i­day par­ties, I love wear­ing a sim­ple silk slip dress with a crystal state­ment choker and Swarovski’s vit­tore rings. They’re the per­fect accessory for stack­ing and adding some sub­tle shine. My favourite hol­i­day tra­di­tion is spend­ing hours in the kitchen cook­ing and bak­ing with my mum, sisters, cousins and Gram. Some of my ear­li­est and most pre­cious me­mories come from this time, which makes it so spe­cial to be able to con­tinue the tra­di­tion with the younger gen­er­a­tions of my fam­ily. I want to keep evolv­ing as an en­tre­pre­neur and busi­ness leader. I’m re­ally fo­cused on build­ing my cod­ing ini­tia­tive, Kode With Klossy. We have big plans for growth and ex­pan­sion to ac­com­plish next year. I’m ex­cited to see what 2018 holds!
