Karlie Kloss Doesn't Follow Trends, Buys Chanel Bags as Gifts

>> Karlie Kloss has been very, very busy. She walked her first Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in November, got nearly nude for Vogue Italia in December, and fronted the most recent Oscar de la Renta campaign this January. With so much fashion at her fingertips, one might assume the supermodel-in-the-making has some strong beliefs about her own style choices. Not so, says Kloss in a recent New York Times piece. "I don't follow trends so much . . . I think I'm still finding my look," she explains. And, while Kloss admits to the occasional splurge — a Prada dress and Kurt Geiger boots are among her recent purchases — she also has a frugal side. "As much as I enjoy and appreciate luxury items, I'm also a total cheapskate. I'm always throwing in a hat from H&M or a Forever 21 T-shirt."

The thriftiness, however, doesn't extend to gift-giving — especially when it comes to family members. "For my younger twin sisters' birthday and my mom's birthday, I bought everybody Chanel bags. Now all the girls in my family have one. Karl gave me one last season, which is how I got my baby. I'm going to be buried with that bag."
