Karlie Kloss, an avid social media user, recently shared her thoughts on some of the drawbacks to being in such a digital culture.
Dazed captured what Karlie said while speaking at SXSW’s talk, “How Technology Colonized Fashion Week.”
I do think there is something special that has been lost a little bit – that is, simply being present without the distraction of being the first one to immediately tweet what the nail color is backstage at Calvin Klein, as opposed to just being there in the moment.
I think that’s the case not just for me as a model, but the audience. All the editors are taking pictures and sharing that. There’s good and bad to it.
We have to agree! We admit, we are guilty of sometimes paying more attention to the camera on our phone when trying to capture that perfect shot than simply enjoying the moment.
Can we find a balance? Yeah, that’s what the Otterlicious Lifestyle is all about.
In the meantime, let’s take a look at some Karlie social media snaps- no irony intended.
Thank you to everyone who came to listen to @sarawilson and I speak at #SXSW today. I couldn’t believe what a incredible turn out we had! (especially given how many other fascinating talks were taking place!) Next year I hope to stay and enjoy the entire conference, but unfortunately I’m already racing back to the airport. Bye Austin! See you next time! Xxx
