For the Love of Vogue: Karlie Kloss' Daring Cut

Posted Monday December 24, 2012 3:53 PM GMT

Looking to change things up a bit, Karlie Kloss opted to shorten her beautiful coif by a whopping seven inches — and she let Vogue document the whole thing at photographer Patrick Demarchelier’s studio in Chelsea, NYC.

In the accompanying interview, the 20-year-old Chicagoan explained the myriad reasons behind the big transition. “It’s been a year of big change for me. Now feels like a good time for a fresh start.”

Prior to the big chop, Kloss shared her reservations about getting her gorgeous locks cut to such a short length.

“I’ve been so happy/nervous/terrified for this moment. I haven’t had short hair since the second grade. It was a bob with bangs — and let me tell you, that was not a fabulous cut," she noted.
