Karlie Kloss has opened up about her political views after a Project Runway contestant joked about her in-laws.
The model and TV host was left stunned when Tyler Neasloney commented on her links to the White House during an episode of the fashion challenge show earlier this month.
Kloss wed American businessman Joshua Kushner in 2018, who is the brother of Jared Kushner, currently employed as U.S. President Donald Trump’s senior adviser. Jared is also married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka.
When told by co-host and judge Brandon Maxwell that the model would never wear his creation to any event, budding designer Neasloney fired: “Not even to dinner with the Kushners?”
During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, Kloss was asked by host Andy Cohen about her political views, considering her connections to the controversial Republican politician.
“Andy, I’m sure I’m not the only person in this country who does not necessarily agree with their family on politics,” she quipped, prompting fellow guest Martha Stewart to add, “Good answer.”
“I voted as a Democrat in 2016 and I plan to do the same in 2020,” Kloss stated.
She later shared her disappointment that Project Runway contestant Neasloney was garnering attention for his joke about the Kushners, and not his “terrible” design.
“Honestly, the real tragedy of this whole thing is that no one is talking about how terrible that dress was. That’s why he went home. I would not wear that dress to any dinner,” the 27-year-old laughed.
