Karlie Kloss Gets One Moment in Time in the Vogue Olympics


Olympic fever has officially gripped the world of fashion with US Olympians invading the June issue of US Vogue. In “Country Strong,” Annie Leibovitz captures Karlie Kloss with a handful of male athletes as she meets them on their respective turfs. 

Kloss takes a dip with swimmer – and cover boy – Ryan Lochte, has hoop dreams with Dwayne Wade, gets hurdled by decathlete Ashton Eaton, monkeys around with pint-sized gymnast Jonathan Horton and  juggles some balls with tennis players Bob and Mike Bryan.

I was center square from 1969 to 1978, during which I perfected the art of the zing as well as a crippling cocaine addiction. Bea Arthur was responsible for both. @LesFabian lester dot brathwaite at gmail
