Karlie Kloss looked absolutely stunning at the TIME 100 Gala in NYC on April 26 and in a sweet interview she revealed that she wore purple to honor the late singer.
Karlie Kloss made a sweet gesture by wearing purple to the TIME 100 Gala on April 26 and she even says her favorite Prince song is “Purple Rain.” The 23-year-old Victoria’s Secret model was there to be honored for her modeling career and also her commitment to local NYC charities.
Karlie looked gorgeous in her Victoria Beckham gown and told People: “I’m wearing my purple in [Prince’s] honor.” The model brought along Joshua Kushner as her date, who looked dapper in a black suit with a skinny tie. She was clearly humbled by the recognition and told Time: “I grew up in a house of strong women. My mom —and my dad of course, he was always very supportive of all my sisters and I. There was never anyone that ever told us we couldn’t do whatever we wanted to do.” We love how strong Karlie is, she’s such a great role model.
Meanwhile in the world of Prince, there is reportedly chaos surrounding the lack of a will. The singer’s half-sister, Tyka Nelson, filed documents in Minnesota since her brother did not have a will. She stands to inherit upwards of $150 million. The Grammy-winner has since been cremated after being found dead in an elevator inside his Paisley Park estate. His exact cause of death is still unknown but many reports are speculating that the singer was addicted to painkillers. Prince’s family held a small memorial at his home but a larger funeral is expected. Our thoughts are with his family and friends during this incredibly difficult time.
