Yesterday, we met the younger twin sisters of Karlie Kloss, and today, WSJ. introduces us to her father Kurt, an ER doctor. He told the magazine (Derek Blasberg, to be specific) about a trip to Chicago, when Karlie was in middle school, and he came to understand modeling could be her career: "An agent pulled me aside and said she was going to be the next Kate Moss. Not that she could be, but that she was going to be ... I had to look up who Kate Moss was." Blasberg adds that Kurt "nearly got into a shoving match" after a man approached Karlie in Paris, and "he wept" when she closed for Viktor & Rolf. Now we're really pushing for a reality show.
