Karlie Kloss is everything any 23-year-old would want to be; not in terms of her career, specifically, but where she stands with herself. She is confident, and that's all you need to get life going.

"I've grown up surrounded by strong women. I am who I am because of my family," she said, speaking to Diane von Fürstenberg in a video from the designer's SS16 campaign.

Diane thinks that girls now are more modest than when she was young, but Karlie begs to differ and calls it "keeping it classy." The two have a conversation – it's really cute that you can't see Diane, so it's like she's behind the camera, interviewing Karlie – and Diane asks that question we need to ask ourselves: "No one ever told you 'Oh, you can't do this' because you're a girl?"

And our answer should really be like Karlie's: "Just the opposite. It almost felt like I wanted things more."

"This is me being me," Karlie added. "Now you be you."

You heard her. Go.
