Karlie Kloss.
Steven Meisel

A classic pose, Karlie’s innate grace and one killer Valentino dress make for a striking December cover all about body-con.

  7. kc says:

    kinda like it.. but does anyone know whats the matter with the vogue paris december issue this year?? is there one anyway? can’t remember last time a vogue italia cover was out earlier than the paris one, italy is usually the last in the bunch.

    She is the only obvious replacement for Lara Stone when Lara moves to icons. WOW!

  11. donna says:

    We are watching the new GISELE no doubt about it. im more of a Freja fan but karlie is a goddess and she is becoming an incredible woman that is gonna conquer the world, step by step! she’ll be number 1 soon.

  12. anlabe says:

    @ KC, maybe it’s because Vogue Paris covers both December and January so maybe they decided to delay it a bit. Numero isn’t out yet either.

  13. Viewer says:

    Supermodel is back !!!

  14. jake says:

    she is incredible. shes making waves in the land of celebrity as well and becoming more accessible to the public – she is really making a name for herself and she is clearly loved in the fashion industry and her supporters very loyal to her. she is a goddess and will be blessed with longevity.

  15. stace says:

    Yep, she’s going to have as meteoric a career as Gisele.
    I think she’ll also be taking over Victoria’s Secret.

  16. Nik says:

    Look at that bootay!!!! Karlie kills it, hands-down, bar-none. She is looking extra sexy recently, which I never would have thought she could be this SEXY AND HIFASHION. Right now I think only a handful of girls working(less than 5) can touch Miss Kloss. She gets alot of OG stuff too!! Go ‘head on Miss Kloss…..wit yo bad self!!! 😉

  17. hombre says:

    i love her, but this sexy transition is going sooo fast in her carrier…come on ppl followed by her teacher mother uncle…she is child in her mind…and lately i dont get this posing with her lips…

  18. Ada says:

    She’s definitely amazing but I think that to say she’ll take over Victoria’s secret is to a get a little carried away. Let’s not forget that even though she has a killer body and walk, her body type isn’t representative of Victoria’s Secret beauty. She lacks curves and I personally don’t think she looked that well in the show

  19. gemma says:

    ^^ i agree with ada. she doesn’t have the personality to head victorias secret..her way of speaking is incredably annoying. i think she is trying too hard to be “grown up” and “sexy” these past couple of months and i’m dreading the nude spreads that are sure to follow in the near future.

  20. Tom says:

    Yup, Meisel can make anyone look good.

  21. trumancapote says:

    her face n lips dont look good at all … it s to forced

    the dress… sick n very versace lol

  22. Marty says:

    she looks amazing and I’m so happy to see her on V.Italia again, I thought it was Edita I WAS GOING TO BE SO HAPPY.

    But this is just as gorgeous she’s beautiful.
    Karlie Kloss’s body>>>>> sexy

    not my favourite cover of her but she’s still amazing.

    @ Ada

    Well, Gisele wasn’t exactly curvy herself. It was the way she struck a pose that made her look curvier than she really was.
    And she said that herself too.

    Karlie and Gisele are about the same: very tall, lithe…up and down.
    We’ll all just have to watch and see how Karlie’s career progresses.

  28. TeaAtTwo says:

    Too much pouting to be a great cover.

  29. Ali says:

    I like the cover. But I feel she looks too altered.

  30. bamboo banga says:

    i defo think it was a mistake to cast her at the VS fashion show, but she is sexy as ever on that cover. To tall and skinny for lingerie thought, but really hot on that cover.

  31. louise says:

    too much pouting, pose. its like ZOOLANDER!!!

  32. Bobby says:

    someone above said she’s the new gisele. i’d agree. WOW.

  33. valdez809 says:

    only the time (a long time of course) could say if Kalie will be the next Gisele…Now is very difficult for a model, because their career progresses fast but falls down very fast too…….luck for her!!!

  34. Michelle says:

    I agree I haven’t seen a model (at such a young age) be this hyped up and accepted in both High fashion and VS since Gisele at such a young age. Gisele too was around 18/19 when she was a fashion superstar and VS took notice. Although at 19 Gisele already had solo US American Vogue covers under her belt,and won Vh1 model of the year award. (which was a big thing back then). BUT Karlie is workin it!

    and Karlie has a bod like Gisele, really? REALLY? since when does KK’s bod look this bodacious?

  35. Bruce Edwin says:

    this is a great cover here, very sexy model and great look here.

  36. Alexandra Madar says:

    SHE IS PERFECT. Oh my gosh.

  37. nick says:

    she does have a lot of similarities as Gisele career wise. she’s able to dominate the opening and closing slots at the couture shows all the way down to commercial advertising.

    but at 6’0″+++–she is quite lanky for VS. she can pose to make herself look curvier but i’m sorry, that’s not an ass/booty/bum/backside..maybe for fashion it is.

    she does a good smize and her facial features never really read “sexy” to me–lack of pout etc but she’s doing a good job working with what she has!

  39. Gustavo says:

    Congratulations Karlie you deserve all the success in the world

  40. peterModelObsessed says:

    Karlie Kloss is the best damn walker at last night VS Fashion Show…… her walk is sooo sexy, she’s basically like Gliding in Air!!!!

    I am impressed by her!!!!

  41. peterModelObsessed says:

    To all of you debating about her curves, or lack of……

    Karlie Kloss is a Great model…..she knows how to give an illusion, just like Gisele!

  42. IS THIS IT? models review says:

    I just saw the whole editorial, and… ok, such a stunning body (I personally love it), but (good or bad – personally bad) in a good number of shots I haven’t recognized the Karlie I actually adore.

  43. Ada says:

    @gemma what you dreaded so much…
    though I have to admit, except for the first picture (right) she looks PERFECT

  44. bamboo banga says:

    @ michelle: Karolina Kurkova did VS when she was 17!

  45. miguel says:

    WHAT A GIFT! What is this? I do not like her face,her leg and arm. Boring,boring,boring.

  46. Marty says:

    This moved Karlie to #3! And Sasha was number #5 how she’s #4 FINALLY
