Karlie Kloss is undeniably one of the biggest supermodels in the world, from coveted runway jobs for brands like Chanel and her gig as a Victoria’s Secret Angel – and she’s not slowing down. As the current face of Versace, the 22-year-old does glamorous to perfection.
While Versace had previously given fans a sneak peek of the campaign, this is the first time the whole series of images has been revealed. Karlie is the epitome of high fashion in the striking images shot by one of fashion’s top photography duos Mert & Marcus, showing off her model credentials in everything from a bright yellow ensemble to dresses with asymmetric hemlines.
However, one of Karlie’s outfits has particularly caught the attention of the fashion pack – an oversized neon green fur coat paired with thigh-high green leather boots. Eagle-eyed fashionistas were quick to recognise the ensemble as it is the head-to-toe look which Rihanna wore during her performance at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in March.
Karlie’s outfit is styled slightly differently however – while Rihanna paired the coat with a black mini dress, Karlie shows off a more laidback look consisting of a crop top and shorts.
Although this marks the first campaign Karlie has done for Versace, she already has a close relationship with the brand. Not only did she walk the catwalk for the label’s haute couture show in Paris earlier this year, but she also topped best-dressed lists at Cannes Film Festival, rocking creations from Atelier Versace on the red carpet.
No doubt Karlie has been keeping busy after it was revealed in February that she would be hanging up her angel wings and leaving Victoria’s Secret to make time for new projects.
The model was one of the lingerie brand’s biggest stars since her 2011 debut in the annual show extravaganza and became an angel officially in 2013.
“She is, without question, one of the best models ever,” said Ed Razek, president of the lingerie giant. “But she is an even better person. Her future is unlimited, and I am excited to see all the good she will do. Karlie Kloss will always be an angel to me.”
