American model Karlie Kloss is at the top of her game - with countless campaigns, covers and shows already under her belt, and with even more still flooding in, she is an unstoppable force and quickly becoming one of the biggest model names around. Opening up on career, Karlie says she often approaches being a model in much the same way an athlete sees their career, especially because she has a background in ballet dancing. She explained: "Dance was always my thing growing up, and I think that's why I treat myself more as an athlete than just a model. I love to challenge myself physically and mentally. But I'm not a professional athlete, I'm not a professional dancer, I'm not a professional anything. I have never considered modelling an actual job title. I have yet to determine what my job actually is but, yeah, modelling is a fun and funny gig."

Karlie adds that she feels her best when she feels strong because she believes beauty is all about having that powerful feeling of confidence and strength within: "Maybe it's my background in dance, but I feel most beautiful when I feel strong ... To me, beauty is much more about how you feel than products, and that comes down to what you're putting in your body and how you take care of yourself."  The model reveals that she also realizes that her body is just a part of her job now but she has to make sure she's as healthy as possible at all times: "Sure, I've had to make choices between my body and my optimal healthy look, starting a career at 15 in an industry where, as a model, my body is a part of my business ... I've had to find a happy point of where I feel best and also can do my job."
