Karlie Kloss on Friendship, Confrontation & Diversity Issues

Opening up on the subject of friendship, model Karlie Kloss believes it's difficult to find real connections with even a few people, and those who have them are very lucky: “If you have one person in your life that you connect with then you’re lucky. If you have a group of friends that you have that connection with then you’re especially lucky. If you have people in your family you have that connection with then you’ve really won the game.” 

She admits she doesn't enjoy confrontation and she always ends up feeling bad: “I definitely don’t like negative confrontation. I’m not great at arguing. I’m not good at getting into fights. I always lose and it makes me really uncomfortable. But I guess, true relationships and friendships come with ups and downs so it’s about figuring out how to work with that.” 

She doesn't want to spend all of her time online: “As transformative and wonderful as technology is at times I think being so absorbed in these online personas can make it hard to exist in the actual moment. Every industry is being transformed by technology and you either adapt or get left behind. So I think why coding has grown to be so powerful, especially for young women, is that it gives you the understanding and the skills to be a part of the change and a part of writing the future.” 

Karlie hopes diversity isn't just a trend in the modelling world and we'll continue to see more changes: “I hope it’s not a trend, because it’s the way that women feel most beautiful, when they’re celebrating their uniqueness, their individuality.”
