Who better to write Karlie Kloss's college recommendation letter than a supermodel who's done it, too? In an interview with The New York Times, Christy Turlington revealed that she indeed wrote the recommendation Karlie submitted for her application to New York University.

"It was all about my crush on Karlie in 500 words. She is going to take this education and blow it up. She's so eager and ready and thoughtful about her next steps," said the 46-year-old Christy, who also went back to school at the height of her modelling career, which was back in 1994.

Karlie, on the other hand, also told NYT that she actually got the idea of going back to college from Christy: "The whole idea of believing I could go to college, and model, comes straight from Christy. It's a lot to take on, but she did it. But I may ask for help with homework."
