The Jimmy Choo founder has cast Karlie in a noir-inspired short film
Karlie Kloss has turned her hand to acting, as the lead role in Tamara Mellon's short film Sharp Knives and High Heels.
The two-and-a-half minute movie marks the launch of Tamara Mellon's eponymous label, after she left Jimmy Choo - the brand that made her name and which she co-founded.
Having left Jimmy Choo on what could only be described as bad terms, Mellon went about setting up her own fashion company, as well as writing a tell-all memoir. A pair of leather legging-cum-boots that feature in her new collection, called Sweet Revenge, go some way to explaining Mellon's new frame of mind. And her new noir-inspired short, with its powerful female lead and sassy title, seems to echo that sentiment also.
In the film, a vampish Karlie Kloss is seen holding a large kitchen knife and washing blood from her hands, before changing seductively from one tight-fitting dress to another. As the tension mounts we see her greet her lover, before she... well, you'll have to watch it for yourself.
