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.

Karlie Kloss stunned by Project Runway contestant’s Kushner family remark

Karlie Kloss was left stunned by a Project Runway contestant’s comment about her husband’s family.

The 27-year-old model, who serves as host and executive producer on the TV series, wed Joshua Kushner in October 2018 after dating for six years. The businessman and investor is the brother of Jared Kushner, who is currently employed by the White House as U.S. President Donald Trump’s senior adviser and is also married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka.

Karlie has tried to avoid talking about her links to the controversial politician, but during the latest episode of Project Runway, contestant Tyler Neasloney called the model out.

The challenge was to make a dress that Karlie could wear in Paris using recycled material, but his gown was not well received by the model or fashion designer Brandon Maxwell.

“It’s definitely ‘wearable’ in someplace that is neither Paris nor Montauk or Martha’s Vineyard,” Brandon, a judge, told the contestant. “I cannot see Karlie wearing it anywhere, honestly.”

“Not even to dinner with the Kushners?” Tyler fired back, before adding, “That’s your husband.”

Karlie’s mouth dropped and head snapped back in reaction to the comment, though she didn’t appear angry and swiftly turned the conversation back to Tyler’s design.

“I was going to Paris, that was your challenge here. Keep it to the challenge,” she said, before adding, “This (design) is not what I asked for. The fabrics are poor choices. I think they look cheap. The pockets are ill-placed… You really missed the mark here on all accounts.”

Tyler was ultimately sent home from Project Runway after leaving the judges unimpressed with his recycled gown, and he later apologised for the remark.

“Karlie, I want you to know that I’m not a jerk, I’m professional,” he said during his exit interview.

Karlie Kloss was overcome with emotion when she saw her Christian Dior wedding dress for the first time.

The model has shared a special behind-the-scenes video looking back at the making of her custom gown to celebrate her first year of marriage with Joshua Kushner.

“364 days later, the making of my beautiful wedding dress youtube.com/klossy,” she wrote alongside a black-and-white snap of her dress on Instagram.

The long-sleeved, lace gown was designed by Dior’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri – with input from Karlie herself – and took more than 700 hours of work to complete.

“When I was a little girl, obviously I always liked the idea of having a fairy tale wedding, but I never imagined I would have the chance,” the 27-year-old said in the video.

The footage shows the intricate process of the dress design, from the initial sketches she received to the first fitting in Paris and the final one in New York.

Karlie and her mother are visibly emotional when they see the gown for the first time in Paris, with the former Victoria’s Secret Angel openly weeping as she finally sees herself in the dress, which was made from delicate lace and had a long train and veil.

The blonde beauty wed Joshua on 18 October last year, and wore two gowns for the intimate celebrations which took place in Upstate New York.

Karlie also revealed that she wore flat shoes for her nuptials, because she wanted to “dance the night away, and I feel most happy in flats”.

Back in June, the couple threw a huge star-studded party in Wyoming to celebrate their marriage, with guests including Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Mila Kunis, Derek Blasberg, and Diane von Furstenberg.

Fashion designer Misha Nonoo created her own wedding dress.

The U.S.-based designer, who is best known for her eponymous line of women’s ready-to-wear clothing and her friendship with Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, tied the knot with oil heir Mikey Hess at Villa Aurelia in Rome, Italy on Friday.

When it came to selecting what to wear for her big day, Nonoo admitted to People that it was difficult making a gown for herself.

“It was really hard,” she said. “When I’m designing a piece, I’m usually thinking about every woman. It has to tick a lot of boxes. When you’re thinking about designing something that you’re going to wear for one day and you have to really only think about yourself, it’s different.

“Obviously, you want your husband to think you look beautiful and you want your respective families to as well, but otherwise you can do whatever you want – you can have short sleeves, long sleeves, high neck, low neck, open back, no back. It makes it much more challenging.”

However, in the end, Nonoo decided the best solution was to have two dresses.

“I like to design with a set of parameters. (It took some time) for me to come to what it was going to be in the end. I had some ideas initially. I knew I wanted it to be traditional. So, I’ve opted for two dresses, so I can tick both boxes!” the fashion star added.

Paparazzi photos showed Nonoo wearing a simple white dress as she arrived at the venue, while a delicate ivory grown with embellished floral details was seen being carried into the villa. No official photographs of the dresses have been released.

Nonoo and Hess exchanged vows in front of a star-studded crowd including Meghan and Prince Harry, Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, Karlie Kloss and Joshua Kushner, and James Corden.

Karlie Kloss cut ties with Victoria’s Secret after becoming a feminist

Karlie Kloss chose to cut ties with Victoria’s Secret after realising the brand doesn’t align with her feminist views.

The model made her debut appearance in a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2011, and was a Victoria’s Secret Angel from 2013 until 2015, though took a two-year hiatus to study at New York University, before appearing in the U.S. lingerie company’s 2017 spectacle held in Shanghai, China in 2017.

However, Karlie has now indicated that she won’t be returning for any further campaigns or shows, as the gig doesn’t “reflect” the message she wants to send to young women.

“The reason I decided to stop working with Victoria’s Secret was I didn’t feel it was an image that was truly reflective of who I am and the kind of message I want to send to young women around the world about what it means to be beautiful,” she said in an interview for the August 2019 issue of British Vogue. “I think that was a pivotal moment in me stepping into my power as a feminist, being able to make my own choices and my own narrative, whether through the companies I choose to work with, or through the image I put out to the world.”

In the wide-ranging chat, Karlie also opened up about finding confidence, various upcoming projects, her entry into the world of TV via her job as the new host of fashion competition programme Project Runway, as well as her decision to convert to Judaism in the lead-up to her marriage to Joshua Kushner, 34, last October.

“Changing part of who you are for someone else can be seen as weak. But you know what? Actually, if you’ve been through what I’ve experienced, it requires you to be anything but weak. It requires me to be stronger and self-loving and resilient. I really did not take this lightly,” the 26-year-old commented. “It was only after many years of studying and talking with my family and friends and soul searching that I made the decision to fully embrace Judaism in my life and start planning for a future with the man I chose to marry.”

Karlie Kloss has denied she’s pregnant.

The model and her new husband Joshua Kushner celebrated their wedding with a cowboy-themed party in Wyoming over the weekend, months after they officially got married in October.

She shared a number of snaps from the bash on social media, including one which showed her gazing into Joshua’s eyes and holding his face as they stood on the dancefloor, and several Instagram users asked whether they could see a small bump under her white off-the-shoulder dress.

Yet, Karlie quickly shut down the speculation by revealing she’d simply indulged in some fast food.

Responding to a user asking if she was pregnant, she replied, “Not pregnant just love,” along with the French fries and halo emojis.

Other users came to Karlie’s defence, with one commenting, “I wish people would mind their own uterus. Her reproductive status is not your business. Anyways, love you Karlie!”

The three-day festivities in Wyoming, which were attended by the likes of Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom and Mila Kunis, served as the catwalk star’s second wedding celebration after she tied the knot with Joshua in Upstate New York. They went on to enjoy a honeymoon in South Africa in December.

The 26-year-old is very private about her relationship with Joshua but gushed about newlywed life to reporters at the 2019 Winter Television Critics Association tour in January.

“Honestly, I just feel really happy. It’s so nice to just have a home base,” she said. “I can’t explain. Nothing has really changed, but in all the best ways, it feels different. I love it.”

Karlie Kloss and Joshua Kushner celebrated their marriage at a star-studded party in Wyoming over the weekend.

The pair, who wed in an “intimate” ceremony in New York in October, had previously revealed their intention to throw a bigger party to mark their nuptials with friends and family.

Among those present for the cowboy-themed occasion were Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, who got engaged themselves in February, with the actor sharing a sweet snap of the pair on Instagram, writing: “Wonderful weekend of being loved and celebrating love, congrats to a beautiful union @karliekloss @joshuakushner.”

Project Runway host Karlie donned an off-the-shoulder white dress with lace detailing for the main celebration, while her husband looked dapper in a pale purple shirt and navy blue suit.

Sharing a snap of the pair being lifted on chairs during a horah dance, a traditional part of a Jewish wedding, Karlie’s journalist friend Derek Blasberg wrote: “May your marriage be as intense and long lasting as my hangover from this weekend.”

Karlie and businessman and investor Joshua started dating in 2012, and got engaged last July.

Even though the pair are notoriously private, the stunning blonde did open up about her relationship shortly after announcing her engagement.

“The proposal was romantic and sweet. We spent the weekend in upstate New York, just the two of us,” she shared in an interview for Vogue.com. “We’ve really grown together personally and professionally. Josh knows that I’m just a nerdy, curious human being. I think that’s why he loves me. We have each other’s back.”

Karlie Kloss’ life has changed “in all the best ways” since marrying Joshua Kushner last October (18).

The 26-year-old model opened up about life as a wife during the 2019 Winter Television Critics Association on Tuesday (29Jan19), where she was promoting the new season of Project Runway, which she hosts.

“I love being married,” she gushed when asked about her husband. “Honestly, I just feel really happy. It’s so nice to just have a home base. I can’t explain. Nothing has really changed, but in all the best ways, it feels different. I love it.”

And speaking about how Joshua – the younger brother of Jared Kushner, U.S. President Donald Trump’s son-in-law – supports her as she “figures out how to continue to grow my career and balance my personal and professional life”, Karlie added: “I feel really grateful that I have a partner, my husband, who’s an incredible support to me and wants to help me accomplish my dreams no matter what they are.”

Karlie and Joshua got engaged last July, and wed in an intimate ceremony in Upstate New York in October.

The blonde beauty also opened up about what she will bring to the new season of Project Runway, following the departure of former host Heidi Klum and mentor Tim Gunn. Former winner Christian Siriano will be stepping into Tim’s shoes, and both Tim and Heidi have expressed their support of the reinvention of the much-loved programme.

“Heidi is an incredible friend and someone I look up to,” Karlie added to People of her new gig. “I’ve been really grateful that she’s supported me. This is her baby. This show is something that she cares so much about and I’m really proud to be a part of it.”

Karlie Kloss and her new husband Joshua Kushner are enjoying a honeymoon in South Africa.

The supermodel and the businessman got engaged in July (18), and wed in an intimate ceremony in Upstate New York in October.

While Karlie, 26, and Joshua, who is the younger brother of Jared Kushner – U.S. President Donald Trump’s son-in-law – jetted off for a 48-hour “minimoon” following their nuptials, the couple has now travelled to South Africa for a romantic getaway.

In one picture posted on Instagram on Wednesday (26Dec18), Karlie is depicted standing in a swimming pool, while an elephant walks past in the background. Another snaps shows a lion yawning, while the star also uploaded a happy selfie of herself and her beau in what appears to be a safari park. Karlie didn’t add a caption, but simply added the honey and moon emojis to her post.

Meanwhile, in her Instagram Stories, the blonde beauty shared a short video showing her visiting some animals, including a family of elephants.

Elsewhere, Joshua, 33, has uploaded a snap of Karlie in a blue dress and straw hat during a walk.

“South Africa,” he wrote alongside the photo, adding giraffe, lion and rhinoceros emojis.

The post caught the attention of the pair’s celebrity fans, with model Gisele Bundchen commenting, “How fun! Enjoy!” and comedian Trevor Noah, a Johannesburg native, joking: “Please can you water my plants while you’re there?”

Even though new Project Runway host Karlie and Joshua are notoriously private, she did open up about her relationship shortly after announcing her engagement.

“The proposal was romantic and sweet. We spent the weekend in Upstate New York, just the two of us,” she shared in an interview for Vogue.com. “We’ve really grown together personally and professionally. Josh knows that I’m just a nerdy, curious human being. I think that’s why he loves me. We have each other’s back.”

Karlie Kloss models in CR Women 2019 calendar for breast cancer charity

Karlie Kloss has posed in pink for the new CR Women 2019 calendar to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The supermodel has shot the calendar in partnership with her beauty brand collaborator Estee Lauder and will donate all funds from the calendar to the organisation, which has a special place in Karlie’s heart as her own mother was diagnosed with the disease at 35 years old.

Other models including Joan Smalls, Grace Elizabeth and Halima Aden are also featured in CR Fashion Book’s second annual calendar, as well as Elizabeth Hurley.

For Karlie’s snap, she was wrapped up in a girly pink puffa coat with her hair slicked back, and minimal blush make-up on her eyes and cheeks.

“Tickled pink in @crfashionbook #CRWomen2019 Calendar with @esteelauder,” the 26-year-old wrote alongside the photo, which she shared on Instagram. “100% of the calendars selling price goes to @bcrfcure (a cause personally very near to my heart!).”

Karlie, who married businessman Joshua Kushner in October (18), was shot by Mario Sorrenti, and the campaign is said to be a tribute to women’s strength and beauty, which has been inspired by the natural uniqueness and ethereality of flowers mixed with the pink ribbon symbol for breast cancer awareness.

“(My mum’s) fight with breast cancer shook our family to the core, and I am humbled to be a part of a campaign that supports other breast cancer fighters, survivors and their families,” Karlie told reporters at People magazine. “My mum is the most resilient, beautiful and courageous person I know. Because this cause has so much personal significance, it was especially meaningful for me to be part of this project.”

The calendar can be purchased online from the official websites of CR Fashion Book and Estee Lauder.
