Karlie Kloss, the model, digital content creator and philanthropist, has signed with UTA for representation.

The multi-hyphenate began her career as a model, walking the runway or shooting campaigns for such designers as Christian Dior and Versace. She has also served as the face of such brands as Estee Lauder and Carolina Herrera.

In recent years, Kloss, 28, has expanded her business to include a robust digital operation, including five-year-old YouTube channel Klossy where she's generated some 55 million viewers for her videos about her life and career. Kloss has more than 20 million followers across all social platforms.

Kloss, an active startup investor, is also the founder of nonprofit Kode With Klossy, which she began in 2015 to host encourage young girls to learn to code and to become leaders in the technology industry. In its first five years, the group has worked with nearly 5,000 through its summer camp program.

Kloss will be represented by Darnell Strom, head of UTA's culture and leadership division. The agency will work with her to expand her portfolio of brand partnerships, philanthropic efforts, film and television work and publishing opportunities.
