For Carine Roitfeld’s Irreverent Ball some dressed as vampires, and some as vamps. The theme was angled towards the former though, thanks to those models with femme fatale blood running through their veins, there was always going to be a strong contingent of the latter. So what else could be expected of Karlie Kloss‘ arched brows and skyscraper legs?
And while we don’t necessarily think it’s time for her to lose that innate sense of classic glamour all together, there’s no faulting the confidence with which she pulls off this revealing cut-away dress. Revealing it may be, but it still fits within the bounds of that character she plays so well: the classic beauty updated for the modern day. No fancy hairstyles, no smoky eyes needed. As Kloss shows, keeping a fresh face is the perfect way to balance a dress such as this one.
Definitely more vamp than vampire.
