Is supermodel Karlie Kloss going to become the next Victoria's Secret star? Now that she's 19, Modelinia thinks Karlie's a sure bet to don a pair of wings and walk the VS runway. Karlie broke into fashion editorials as a young teen, but VS has an age minimum of 18 for their models.
However, Karlie is 19 now. Modelinia thinks that Karlie's appearance in a recent Victoria's Secret Pink (their collection aimed at younger women) campaign is a sign that she is building a relationship with the brand. Her costars in the campaign, Chanel Iman and Behati Prinsloo, have both walked the VS runway, which certainly sets a precedent. Considering Karlie's success in the editorial arena, if she's able to cross over to VS she could become the next queen-of-all-modeling-worlds Gisele Bundchen.
VS will announce their next runway lineup in a few weeks.
