Let’s just say she’s come a long, long way since her tween days. Her recent shoot for the October issue of Allure is entitled “Best of Beauty” – supposedly a reference to the cosmetics, clothing, and jewelry she’s showcasing, though we’re more inclined to attach that title to Ms. Kloss herself. sweet! let me in! →
