Karlie Kloss is one of the busiest models in the world right now. But even though her career is on the upswing, the model has decided to start college at New York University's Gallatin School of Individualized Study this autumn. "I see education as a way to invest in myself, and diversify and be able to think about how to go much further," she told WWD.

But don't worry, Karlie fans, because she's not turning her back on the fashion industry just yet. "I'm 22, I'm just getting started. Role models of mine like Christy Turlington or Cindy Crawford, they work even today after incredible careers — and kids. I want to do this job for a very long time," she said.

In fact, Karlie has just been named L'Oréal's new ambassador, which means a lot more projects and appearances on her plate. Yet even though she has been in the limelight for a long time now, she admits that appearing in public still makes her nervous.

So what's her secret to looking so confident? Her makeup artist. "As a model, when you walk on that red carpet and everybody is shouting your name it’s incredibly overwhelming, you wanna know that when you step out there you feel like the most confident, beautiful version of yourself possible." She is human after all.
