Speaking to The Telegraph, the 25-year-old model responded to a question about the relevance of the lingerie fashion show in the climate of #MeToo and other feminist movements.

“There’s something really powerful about a woman who owns her sexuality and is in charge,” Kloss said. “A show like this celebrates that and allows all of us to be the best versions of ourselves. Whether it’s wearing heels, makeup or a beautiful piece of lingerie – if you are in control and empowered by yourself, it’s sexy.”

“I personally love investing in a powerful scent or piece of lingerie, but I ensure it’s on my terms,” she added. “I like to set a positive example, so would never be part of something I didn’t believe in.”
