Daily Style Phile: Karlie Kloss, Supermodel, And Joe Jonas' Newest Crush

by Sara Schnackel · July 13, 2011

Karlie Kloss modeled for the first time at age 13, and now, five years later, she has skyrocketed to modeling super-stardom. She has walked in countless runways shows, and fashion magazines.  Most recently, she is recognized not for winning a fashion award, but for winning Joe Jonas' heart. But let's be honest, who could blame the Jo Bro? With a face like that she's every man's (or teen heartthrob's) dream.

Ballet

Before Karlie was an international supermodel, she was a ballet dancer. She started dancing at the age of 10, and quickly became a very talented ballet dancer. Karlie was in a number of performances, including the Nutcracker.  Karlie says her classical ballet training is a "beautiful thing" that helped her move in the modeling world. She even said that her dance experience helped her develop her runway walk, which she refers to as a "moody gait",  at the very beginning of her career.

On Joe Jonas

As if all the girls didn't have enough reasons to be jealous of her, Karlie and Joe Jonas were spotted getting cozy at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club on Saturday, at Prince William's charity tournament.  We all know Joe gets around, (previous girlfriends include Ashley Greene, Demi Lovato, and Taylor Swift) but he seems to have an eye on our favorite young supermodel. After being spotted at the polo match, three photo booth pictures emerged of the pair laughing, making kissy faces, and flirting. Later they were seen sipping bubbly, and snitches say they were sitting very close together .  Looks like Prince William wasn't the only one scoring on Saturday.
