It’s hard to believe supermodel Karlie Kloss ever had self-esteem issues, but the 23-year-old Victoria Secret angel recently shared her “awkward teen pics” with the world.
In the latest video on her YouTube channel Klossy, Karlie described her younger self as “tall, skinny, awkward and gangly,” and stressed the importance of believing in yourself no matter what.
Despite her personal belief that she wasn’t a very attractive teen, it’s pretty clear to us that Karlie was model-material from a young age. Here are more adorable childhood photographs of your favourite models, long before they hit the runway.
Who knew this sweetie pie would one day grow up to become the former Mrs Orlando Bloom? That’s right, it’s Miranda Kerr!
Cara and Poppy Delevinge
Cute! The famous model siblings look as good together now as they did back then!
The camera loved Chanel then, and it loves her now!
Gigi has always been a beauty. Which may be why modelled for Guess Jeans as both an adult and a child! How many people can say that?
Kelly Brook, is that you?! The glamour model has never looked so angelic!
The model and TV presenter is barely recognisable without her signature tousled locks and winged eyeliner!
We’d recognise those blue eyes anywhere!
Love the fringe Bar!
Fei Fei Sun
Somewhere along the line Fei Fei apparently traded in her cheesy grin for a sultry pout.
Like mother like daughter! We see where Behati gets her model-looks from.
Looks as though Joan has been a fan of the updo for quite some time!
Is that Wednesday Addams?! No, it’s Ali Michael. The model has clearly had the goth look down since childhood.
Wow! If we’ve learned one thing from these snaps, it’s that supermodels clearly don’t go through an awkward phase like the rest of us.
