A gender-neutral model penned an emotional letter to Karlie Kloss after walking in Milan Fashion Week, pledging to 'break boundaries’ as much as possible in the future.
Oslo Grace, a California native who is now based in New York, opened up to the 25-year-old supermodel in a touching, hand-written note, which Karlie shared on Instagram Stories later.
In the letter, Oslo opened up about walking in Gucci’s Spring/Summer 18 show in Milan on Wednesday, calling it an 'incredible’ and 'overwhelming’ moment.

Message: 'This new lifestyle is hectic but I’m eager to push forward and try to break boundaries if I can,’ Oslo (pictured earlier this month at New York Fashion Week) wrote
Supermodel Karlie, who shot to runway icon status shortly after her first show in 2007, is a source if inspiration for many young models—including, evidently, for Oslo.
'Karlie, I hope it’s okay that I write this to you,’ the note, which is thought to have been handed to the model in an airport while the pair both traveled back to the US from Milan, begins.
Oslo then goes on to politely apologize to Karlie for bothering her, before sharing some information about themselves.
Being gender-neutral means Oslo doesn’t identify as either male or female, and opts to be referred to by gender-neutral pronouns.
Some of the words got cut out in Karlie’s Instagram photo, but the essential parts of the letters are clearly displayed.
'My name is Oslo, I’m a gender neutral model coming back from Milan Fashion Week (as I’m sure you are too) and just had the honor of walking in my first big show with Gucci,’ Oslo added.
'It was incredible as well as overwhelming, this new lifestyle is hectic but I’m eager to push forward and try to break boundaries if I can.’
Response: After reading Oslo’s note, Karlie shared it on Instagram Stories and told her fellow model 'congrats and good luck’ next to a blue heart emoji

Oslo then told Karlie it was 'neat’ to have seen her, and wished the model the best 'for whatever life endeavors you are pursuing at the moment’.
This show season is Oslo’s first; the six-foot-tall beauty has only been modelling for seven months after being first scouted online.
The model, who keeps a vegan diet, grew up with seven brothers and is an animal lover with two dogs and a tortoise, as explained to Models.com.
'I’m passionate about a variety of issues, anything from habitat protection of orangutans to human rights like the Israeli Palestinian conflict,’ Oslo told the website.
Karlie reacted kindly to Oslo’s note on Instagram, telling her fellow model 'congrats and good luck, Oslo’ next to a blue heart emoji.
