If blondes have more fun, then all of Hollywood might as well throw a damn party right now. Celebrities like Rooney Mara, Jennifer Lawrence, and Taylor Swift have opted for lighter locks in recent months, and the latest star to join the blonde brigade is none other than supermodel Karlie Kloss.
“I’m already having more fun,” the 23-year-old captioned her photo on Instagram. In the picture, she shows off her lighter locks with what appears to be a hint of pink in the mix. Kloss’ hair was already in the dirty-blond family, but this new color officially pushed her into the bright, nearly platinum territory of her squad. And considering that she and Swiftie already kind of resemble long-lost sisters, we can only imagine what a side-by-side is going to look like now.
Kloss is no stranger to hair changes. Her now-iconic chop feels like ages ago, but let us not forget that she flirted with mermaid-blue hair back in March. Her BFF T. Swift may be over her Bleachella moment, but it’s clear that Kloss is just warming up.
Hello! This part is also very much Tayvin, but I’m gonna break them up soon, I promise (that just sounded a bit weird, lol). I hope that you all are having a great day and that you like this part of the story <3
I was feeling sick that morning when I woke up. Maybe I was the one who did things wrong? Maybe this almost was like cheating. I mean, I looked forward to getting a text from Tom more than Adam. But maybe that’s just because I remember Tom telling me about his friend Chris Hemsworth’s kids, and how he hoped Chris would bring them to Australia for awhile when they ’re going to record their next movie. He seemed to love kids. And Adam didn’t want kids, at all.
I remembered the text I sent him, right before I fell a sleep, so I took up my phone. It was more phone calls and messages than I thought. It was from Tree, Karlie, Adam and there his name was on the screen, Tom Hiddleston.
”You are something special Swift, and not someone you forget about. I will be there in one week. So if you have time to meet me, tea would be lovely. Or you’re american so coffee works too.”
I got happy by the text. He said I’m something special! Or wrote, but what ever. CALM DOWN Taylor! You are with Adam and you have to fix things or end things before something happens here.
I read the message Karlie had sent me.
Karlie: Taylor, I have tried to call you like 7 times, where are you? And did you and Adam broke up or something? Because he sat home and cried or what ever. He seemed very down and all. Are you even alive?
I started laugh at the last thing, that was so typical us, taking things to the next level. Like I did in the interview with Teen Vogue, when he asked me how weird I was on a scale one to ten. And I responded something like ”So weird, so weird but not like I have heads in my freezer.”
I called her.
K: Oh thank God. You are alive! T: Hey, yeah sorry. I fell a sleep pretty early. K: You and Adam! Are you over? T: I don’t know. I have no idea. K: And you’re not even crying? So, you are okay with this? T: I don’t know Karlie, all I know is that I can’t imagine a life with out kids, and Adam don’t wanna have any. I love him, of course I love him, but when he talked about me that way in the interview, when he told me he wasn’t sure about wanting to have kids, and then he wont let me see who ever I wanna see. He got totally pissed off because Tom texted me yesterday. K: Ohh Tom texted you? T: Yes, but Karlie it’s nothing, yet at least. I need to find out everything with me and Adam first. K: Do you still think Adam cheated when he stayed over that night in Vegas? T: Yeah, why do you ask? K: Just imagine for one second that he din’t cheat. And let’s just imagine he really believes the story the magazines tell. Try to see it from his perspective. You didn’t trust him, and now he doesn’t trust you. Maybe, he really believe you and Tom hooked up, like more in one hug. T: You’re right. Thank you. I need to call him. K: I’m always right. Good luck!
I hung up the phone and tried to call Adam, but it went straight to voice mail. I jumped out of bed, to take a quick shower. I then called my driver and ask him to come over. Then, I put on some clothes and put on some light make up. I got a call from my driver, just to let me know he was here, perfect timing.
”Hello. Where should I drive you?” my driver asked with a smile on his face. ”To Adams” I said, then continued with ”But first Starbucks” when I realized I hadn’t eaten any breakfast yet. ”Okay, what do you want me to order?” my driver asked. ”Let’s make it two iced coffees and one Roasted Tomato & Mozzarella Panini to me and one Chicken BLT Salad Sandwich to Adam, thank you.”
After buying some breakfast at Starbucks, we headed over to Adam and I started getting a bit nervous.
”We are here now, miss” my driver said. ”Thank you so much. You don’t have to call me miss all the time, you know that right? You can call me Taylor” I said and stepped out of the car.
I took the food and went up to Adams house. I put the drinks on the ground so I could take up my extra key to his place. ”Adam, I’m home” I said out pretty loud. Then I realized that I used the world >home<.
I heard someone in the living room. So I started going in that direction. When I came in, I saw Adam laying on the couch, with a blanked over him and a whiskey bottle on the table that was empty. ”Hey. Oh this headache” he said as he stood up.
My eyes started tearing up, I did this to him. He was a party boy, but he never drank more than one glass. Now he was hung over and when he came closer to me I could smell the of alcohol. ”I’m so sorry Taylor” he said when he stopped in front of me.
”Take a shower, brush you teeth, drink a lot of water, now. And then come bak here, because I bought us some breakfast and we really need to talk.” I saw the sadness in his eyes ”Okay, I be down here in 15 minutes or something.”
I went in to his kitchen, to put our drinks in the fridge and our sandwiches in the oven. I found some fruits so I made us a fruit salad. Soon I heard Adam coming downstairs, so I placed all the food on the dinner table.
”Smells delicious” Adam said, when he walked in to the room. ”And you smell more like you now too, so that’s great” I responded. ”Taylor” he started. I grabbed his hand and led him to the table. ”I’m sorry. I don’t wanna fight anymore.” I said. ”Is this a break up? Or are you trying to make things okay?” he asked me. I sat down and looked at the food. ”I don’t know yet” I responded.
We had our breakfast and talked about everything, except from the things we actually needed to talk about.”Adam” I started. ”Yeah” was the only thing he responded. I was so nervous, but we had to talk about it.
I grabbed his hand. ”I didn’t cheat. I really like him as a friend, but I didn’t cheat. I can be 100% honest, I think he looks great, that he’s an amazing human being, but I would never kiss or sleep or what ever you think I did, with someone else when I’m together with you.” he looked down at the table, and then up at me again. ”When I’m together with you, hugh. So you could kiss him or sleep with him if we weren’t a thing?” he asked me. Why did we always have to do this? I knew I did it to him, and he did it to me too, it was so silly. Why can’t we just move on?
”I honestly don’t know. I would like to say no, because that would make you happy, but I would also lie then. The truth is that we have no idea of how our lives would look like, if we weren’t together. If Ellie never had introduced me to you, I would probably still be scared of love. But the thing is, I’m in love with you, and I like Tom, as a friend. Just like I like Ed, as a friend.”
”Sure, you can meet him, as a friend” he answered. ”Thank you, for trusting me. And when we are talking about it, I don’t know what happened in Vegas, so if you say it was nothing, I’m gonna trust you on that.” I said, still scared that it might be a stupid decision. ”Nothing happened Taylor, I promise.”
It all felt like a make up, but I knew we had a lot of things left to discuss. Like babies. And the interview.
Adam’s phone rang. ”I’m sorry, but I have to take this” he said. ”It’s okay.” ”Hi John. Yeah” was all I heard before Adam left the room. Perfect timing to respond to my friend Tom’s text.
”We can meet next week, as friends. Coffee/Tea sounds lovely. What do you say about May 11th?” I clicked send and the text message was now sent to what ever place he was right now. My phone buzzed right away.
”11th is perfect. Did I ever say I wanted or thought this would be anything more?” I read the message and felt embarrassed. Of course he knew we would meet as friends, he knew I had Adam.
I send her a message right before I went to bed yesterday, honestly, I stayed up a bit extra, just so she would see my name on her phone the first thing in the morning. I was a bit scared she would read in before she fell a sleep, because of the time difference. I sent it to her 1:30am in New York, which means she got the text 10:30pm in LA.
When I woke up this morning I looked at my phone and din’t see an answer, so I did it. She would wake up to my text, but now I would probably have to wait a few hours until I get a respond. The clock was 8 here, so 5 in LA.
I started working out, because I had to be in good shape to my upcoming movie. I was really exited about it, but also a bit scared. Not scared for the movie, but scared to be away from everything here, and to be honest, a bit scared to be away from Taylor too. I know I had just met her and that she had a boyfriend. But I could just not get what Karlie said out of my brain ”Yeah sure, if you and Adam break up, you and Tom will get together in like 1 months or something.” It was stuck in my brain, and I knew it was wrong.
After training for an hour, I decided to do something stupid. I decided to google Taylor. After reading a lot of mean things about Taylor I felt bad. Because I had googled her, but also because she was such an amazing human being and didn’t deserve this. Not a word. A lot of pages was about how Taylor only wrote songs about her exes, so I decided to listen to some of her songs.
I made some breakfast and then, I went to her Youtube Chanel, and started watching New Romantics. I loved the video, she was serious on stage and was a dork behind it. And the song was also great. After watching Out Of The Woods, Wildest Dreams, Blank Space, Shake It Off, 22, Everything Has Changed, Back To December, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, Mine, Tim McGraw, The Best Day, You Belong With Me and Love Story, I had an even bigger crush on her. She was so cute, her videos are great, her song voice is so amazing and by her lyrics you can understand that she has been heartbroken, she has been treated bad and she is not that okay with it all as the media makes it look like. She is destroyed inside. After this I can’t imagine a life with out knowing her, but if things are bad between her and Adam, I get it if she wont even respond on my text. I just wish I could show her how amazing she is and how a man should treat a lady like her. Tom, stop. You and Taylor will never happen.
A few hours past by and I got nervous that she wouldn’t respond, and then, when I least expected it, my phone buzzed.
”We can meet next week, as friends. Coffee/Tea sounds lovely. What do you say about May 11th?” I read the message to myself three times. As friends. I knew that was all we could be, and that wasn’t what I wanted, but I’m an actor, so I just had to play along, and after awhile, friends would be good. I quickly replied ”11th is perfect. Did I ever say I wanted or thought this would be anything more?” That wasn’t a lie. I never told her I started to like her. But could I even like a girl I just met? Or was it just that I hadn’t been with someone in a long time and that she is really attractive? I guess I would have to wait until next week to find out.
There are girl crushes, and then there’s Karlie Kloss. We’re inspired every day by her style, confidence and passion, so we’re beyond excited to welcome Karlie back as Brand Ambassador and Creative Consultant. A few reasons why (as if you didn’t know):
SUPERMODEL Discovered in a mall when she was 13 years old, Karlie walked in her first New York Fashion Week at 15.
STUDENT Last fall, Karlie joined the freshman ranks at NYU in a study program designed around her individual interests.
ENTREPRENEUR & PHILANTHROPIST Through Klossies, her line of vegan and gluten-free treats, Karlie raises money to feed the hungry and support young fashion designers.
CODER After learning to code on her own, Karlie started Kode With Klossy, a scholarship program to help girls learn to build apps.
INFLUENCER She’s got followers in the millions and she’s been singled out as one of the most influential people in the world by Time magazine.
Karlie Kloss is at the forefront of the new generation of supermodels known for their strong, athletic bodies and dedication to fitness and wellbeing. We caught up with the former Victoria’s Secret model to talk about her new job as the face of Adidas by Stella McCartney, her work-out regime and the mantra that gets her to the gym when all she wants to do is watch Netflix in bed.
How do you decide which brands to work with?
I try and work with people who are like-minded – brands that share the same kind of values as me. Working with Adidas has truly been a pleasure, as I have always considered myself an athlete even in my small way. I like to be focused and push myself. It’s part of my lifestyle.
Why do you think you, Adidas and Stella McCartney are such a good fit?
I think that Adidas is really unique as a brand in that it cares about functionality but also the fit and the style; that’s why it’s such a natural partnership with Stella McCartney – she’s this incredible designer who understands what women want to wear. It’s this perfect marriage of style and practicality. Adidas really cares about its consumer and it knows who their woman is and how she thinks about pushing herself to be stronger and better, and that’s the way that I live my life too.
Why is it so important to you to keep fit?
It’s important to me because it changes the way I feel – I feel like the best version of myself when I feel strong and well rested. Something that I’ve learned during my time as a model is to take time to take care for yourself – to rest and to exercise and to indulge in good nutrition and wholesome food. It’s not a matter of vanity; when you take care of yourself you’re able to perform better, to have more energy, to think clearer, to work harder.
What are your favourite ways to keep fit?
I really love to switch it up. I love to focus on cardio one day, then strength training another day, then stretching and yoga. I like to do a bit of everything.
How would you encourage girls to get more involved with sport and fitness?
I grew up in a house of four daughters, and I think my dad was actually the least active of all of us. I’ve never thought about sport as more of a boy’s thing. All of my girlfriends were always really athletic. I danced for my whole adolescence and I was always really drawn to sports and I had a natural knack for it. I love the strategy that goes into playing games and knowing about the defensive and offensive tactics. I’m also really competitive.
Today the aesthetic for models is strong, not skinny. Why do you think that’s a good thing?
Everybody is different – everyone has to figure out what’s good for them. For me I really try to find the right habits, the right way to fuel my body and to push myself to be the best, strongest version of myself. Everybody has to determine that for themselves. You start to feel better when you’re stronger and you can run for five minutes longer, or do an extra five push-ups. When you hit those minor wins it’s a great feeling, it’s an upward cycle.
How much responsibility do you feel to be a role model to girls today?
To even be in the position that somebody would consider me a role model or somebody that has influence is amazing. I very much had a lot of role models of women that I looked up to in my community and my school and public figures that really inspired me. Now that I’m that for someone else is a huge honour. I don’t take it lightly. It’s really important to me to use that influence in a positive way. If I can make any impact on anybody else to push themselves a little bit more, whether that’s in a physical sense or trying something new – I’m very passionate abut education as a whole and trying new things and pushing myself to be better – that’s definitely something that is important to me.
Do you have a mantra that gets you to the gym when you don’t want to go?
Totally. Yesterday I was doing interviews from 7am to 3pm, then in the afternoon, from 3pm to 7pm, I was doing another photo-shoot. When I got home at 7.30pm I just wanted to crawl into bed and watch Netflix. But I knew that the best gift you can give yourself is that gratifying feeling after a good sweat, so I put my tennis shoes on and my ear buds in and went out to the Westside Highway and ran as the sun set. I love to listen to podcasts and audio books while I’m running, so I’m sort of multitasking. Putting the gym clothes on and getting out the door is always the hardest part. Exercising is easy, it’s getting there that’s the hard part. (x)
