Karlie Kloss's Secret for Staying Confident on the Red Carpet

Jessica Schiffer

Karlie Kloss was a force to be reckoned with at Cannes this year, making the rounds as a L’Oréal spokesperson and co-chairing amfAR’s annual Cinema Against AIDS gala last week. WWD managed to catch up with the top model for a moment (literally—she was meeting with people in 10-minute increments), and they discussed everything from her plans to one day attend Harvard Business School to how she deals with nerves on the red carpet. So, what’s her secret? A good makeup artist and—for those of us who don’t have that luxury—a very specific brow kit!

“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. I'm human, I definitely don't feel like that every day.”

She continued:

“It’s a very intimate relationship between a makeup artist and his subject. I’m all about the brow. I have my mom’s brow, very arched, and there is one product that I’m obsessed with—it’s the Brow Artist Genius Kit. It’s great because it has wax and powder, which sounds kind of crazy, but if you wanna fill in the shape a little bit more or extend it you can use this—it has little tweezers, a little brush, everything you need in this travel-size kit.”
