We have always loved model Karlie Kloss, but her recent statement about fashion's unrealistic body standards just made us adore her even more.

She recently told London newspaper The Telegraph, "There's pressure to be a certain shape or size because the clothing is a certain shape or size. As a model, you want to be booked in the show or in the campaign, so you have to fit the clothing."

Kloss continued, "I'm always very supportive of the conversation around rethinking sample sizes. I'm taller than all of my peers, my body is just different from everybody else's to start with, so the idea of having one-size-fits-all that everybody needs to shape themselves to fit is not realistic."

Bravo, K.K.!
