Modelling phenomenon Karlie Kloss, 19, has certainly made a splash in the industry this year - shooting a topless editorial for Allure magazine in September before hitting the Victoria's Secret runway for the first time last week. However, Kloss has turned up the heat once again and appears in a nude photo shoot for Italian Vogue, according to the Huffington Post.
Shot by Steven Meisel, the shoot sees Karlie in numerous sensual poses, wearing nothing but white stiletto heels in one particular shot - she also features on the cover of the magazine, wearing a beige cut-out dress. The 19-year-old has made such an impression on the industry that Vogue Italia have labelled her "The (new) Body" - a nickname formerly attached to the Australian supermodel Elle Macpherson. While aged 18 and still at high school in Missouri, Kloss was already featuring prominently in campaigns for Prada and Dior. She is currently ranked No. 4 in models.com's Top 50 Models in the world, behind Natasha Poly, Freja Beha Erichsen, Anja Rubik and Lara Stone - the wife of British comedian David Walliams.
Just this year, Kloss has opened 10 high profile shows and closed 8. She is often cited for her unique runway walk, which many have described as powerful, piercing and even panther-like.
