For a Mario Testino–shot beauty editorial in this month's Allure, 19-year-old Karlie Kloss wears very little makeup — along with very little of anything else. (A sample fashion credit: "necklace by Fenton, spandex thong by Victoria's Secret.") Though her modesty's consistently preserved, it's only thanks to some splayed fingers here and well-positioned bath bubbles there — and this not-really-a-scandal has some bloggers clutching their pearls and reeling from the shock of it all.
Even with Karlie seen by many as the all-American supermodel-girl-next-door type, (tasteful) nudity in fashion and beauty magazines rarely garners more than an extra blink. And with her consistently in-demand status in mind, it's unlikely Karlie felt the need to get exposed just for the exposure, or disrobe on anyone's terms but her own. Besides, she's a legal adult! If anything, it's more of an edgy surprise from Allure than from the college-age model. And surely far more interesting is that she looks a little like Duchess Kate in a couple of the shots.
