by Sydney Sadick

Supermodels Karlie Kloss and Christy Turlington Burns are the stars of Cole Haan’s new Fall/Winter 2017 ad campaign, “Extraordinary Women, Extraordinary Stories,” lensed by Cass Bird. The women star in candid video vignettes and editorial photographs with cutting-edge styling by celebrity stylist Karla Welch. “I was honored to work with women whom I respect greatly,” Welch told The Daily. “I’ve known Cass since we were both babies in the business and Karlie I’ve worked with for years. For me, Christy was a fashion nerd’s dream come true. I couldn’t believe it!”

Through a photo essay and video shorts, Bird captures intimate anecdotes and life lessons shared between Kloss and Burns about their aspirations, both of whom have used their modeling careers to impact women’s lives through their respective initiatives, Kode with Klossy and Every Mother Counts, as they aspire to do more, place passion with purpose, and embody the extraordinary. “When someone is extraordinary, they are being genuine to their unique passions and chasing their dreams,” Kloss said. Turlington Burns noted, “What any of us do on any daily basis is very ordinary, very routine. Extraordinary is really born from being your best possible self in any of those given moments.”
