When Karlie Kloss turned up backstage at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show last month with a much shorter haircut, she told us that she did it for "a job."
This week, Vogue published a story about a newly trendy haircut known simply as the chop, which in recent months has been adopted by everyone from Arizona Muse to Olivier Theyskens. Kloss's cut was administered by the mononymous New York stylist Garren in Patrick Demarchelier's photo studio, and the magazine chronicled the model's transformation from long-haired and lovely to short-haired and almost gamine.
"I love it. I can't stop touching it . . . it makes me feel more daring," Kloss said afterward, adding that having shorter locks "actually takes the focus off your hair and puts the focus on you. I'm starting to realize that it's all about confidence."
The only drawback to the new 'do? "It's winter, and I happen to have this very long neck," Kloss noted. "I may need to invest in some really warm scarves."
