Karlie Kloss has been leaning in a scholarly direction for some time now — putting in time at Harvard, like Tyra before her — and in the Vogue cover story she shared with Taylor Swift, she revealed that she’s going to be enrolling at NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study this fall. (She got a letter of recommendation from alum Christy Turlington Burns.) Now, People is reporting that one casualty of Kloss’s newfound focus on scholarship will be her wings — as in, the ones she wears as a Victoria’s Secret angel.
Said Victoria’s Secret’s Ed Razek in a statement, “Karlie and I met several months ago to discuss the many things she hoped to do in her life and career. As we talked, it became clear she would not have the time to fulfill her myriad commitments. Reluctantly, we agreed she would leave the brand at the end of her contract. Karlie is one of a kind, a very close friend, someone I truly admire and love. She is, without question, one of the best models ever. But she is an even better person. Her future is unlimited, and I am excited to see all the good she will do. Karlie Kloss will always be an Angel to me.”
