American model Karlie Kloss has opened up as her past as a ballet dancer. The model explains that training to become a professional influenced her style greatly as she was only allowed to wear minimal makeup and she also began to appreciate simple clothing as a result. She explained:
''I grew up dancing, I even wanted to become a professional dancer, but I was too tall! I love 'Coppelia' and 'Swan Lake'. ''As a young ballerina, I was only allowed to wear my hair in a bun and make-up was banned. That influenced my tastes a lot. I only wear a small amount of concealer on my imperfections, a hint of cream blush (Blushing Fabric from Armani) and black mascara from L'Oréal Paris, that's it!''
The model likes to continue her studies whenever possible and says she tries to take relevant classes whenever she can fit them in:
''I go to NYU whenever I have time. Last autumn, I took classes in capital investment and finance so I can set up my own company. I loved it!''
Her role model is legendary beauty Christy Turlington:
''My inspiration is Christy Turlington, she's an icon. After 30 years she's still working and she's an example of generosity thanks to her [Every Mother Counts] foundation.''
