What’s next for model Karlie Kloss? Swarovski. The renowned crystal house announced today that the 23-year-old will replace Miranda Kerr as the face of the Austrian brand, and will front its campaigns for the next two years. The former Victoria’s Secret angel—who started modeling at the age of 15—is a budding businesswoman and philanthropist and has become a role model for female empowerment. When she’s not walking runways, making appearances at high-profile events, or hanging out with her best friend Taylor Swift, the fashion icon champions personal initiatives. Karlie Kloss launched her own non-profit computer programming education camp called Kode with Klossy, which is a platform dedicated to equipping young girls with skills in the field of computer sciences. The model also has her own project of charitable, gluten-free cookies—fittingly named Karlie’s Kookies—with proceeds going towards helping underprivileged children through the organization FEED.
