Yeah I think that would be my only (small) complaint with the cover.. I think they enhanced her upper lip (and probably her lower lip too, a bit) because of how thin it is naturally. I think it looks a little weird and they could have done without it, but I still think the cover is good and very powerful. Congrats to Karlie and Joan!

When somebody recognizes
me, I’m always a little shocked—
like, Wait, really?” Karlie Kloss says.
“Hang on…me?” But the girl, it
must be said, is noticeable, waving
animatedly from a stool at One
Lucky Duck, a raw-food shop in
Manhattan’s Chelsea Market, all six
feet one inch of her unfolding like
an elongated, enchanting

Kloss and Joan Smalls
have spent the day across the
street being photographed by
Steven Meisel, and you get the
feeling that the two cover models,
who together represent the new
face of fashion, may just have to
get used to being recognized.
Marc Jacobs has named a bag for
Kloss. Smalls’s feline frame was
immortalized in this year’s Pirelli
calendar and in yellow jeans on a
giant Calvin Klein billboard above
Manhattan’s Houston Street.
These are the signs of certified
critical-mass appeal, and yet to
each, in her own way, it’s all still
somehow unexpected.

“Let’s be honest,” says Kloss. “I
think it’s the fact that I’m eight
inches above the average person
walking down the street. I’m
somewhat in my own cloud.” At 19,
she already knows how to be
disarmingly self-deprecating, but
yes, let’s be honest, it’s not just her
meteorological height that attracts
attention. Kloss also happens to
have the face of a fairy, with a
small constellation of freckles on
her right cheek, and the kinetic
effervescence of a sprite.

When Kloss was growing up in St.
Louis, the discipline of ballet
training provided a positive charge
for her lightning-bolt limbs. “You
learn to control every aspect of
your muscles, your face, your toes,
your fingernails,” she says. “And
that is how you tell a story,
through movement.” Her first
shoot in New York, at 14, was with
Arthur Elgort, who photographed
her doing a split on a ballet bar.

She might look like a living line
drawing—one encased in custom-
made 3x1 pants, the first jeans
she’s ever had that actually touch
the ground—but it took Kloss a
long time to “own it,” she says. “My
sisters have always been these
gorgeous glamazons, and I’m, like,
this tall skinny stick in the family.
And I still am the tall girl, even on
the runways.

Every time I see Karl
Lagerfeld, he’s always, like”—she
puts on a German accent—“ ‘Karlie,
have you stopped growing yet? Are
you taller?’ ” She laughs loudly. “It
used to be something that I really
disliked about myself, being tall
and lanky, but it turned out to be
the greatest asset I have—how
uniquely weird I am.”

(From the W mag website by Jessica Lustig)
I find the Karl quote hilarious

At least that puts an end to the height discussion! 6ft 1".
Both covers look beautiful except they have made them the same colour!

Love the W cover. She looks much better not doing that staring at the ceiling looking surprised with her mouth gaping open expression that she does 90% of the time.

I am so happy for her. She is so down to earth... rolling down 5th Ave in her Range Rover.

Kidding with love.
