Karlie Kloss & Christina Tosi Werk It Out
Channel your inner Olivia Newton-John
So forget Tracy Anderson, Barry’s Boot Camp or any other exercise craze because our two favorite people, Milk Bar legend Christina Tosi and Supermodel Karlie Kloss, have teamed up to create their very own workout video…..and we have to say – it’s kinda genius!
Check it out here but first get behind the scene insider scoop from Tosi below… Boom!
THE VIDEO – Who, How, Why did this happen? Where did it all begin?
CHRISTINA TOSI: Karlie and I met and bonded over our overbearing love for baking! We started a line of fashionably wholesome cookies (dairy-free, gluten-free) called Karlie’s Kookies. Amex offered to help make some of my 2013 dreams come true so I begged Peter Meehan of Lucky Peach fame to help direct a goofy workout video that would embody the Perfect 10 Kookie.
THE WORK OUT – If you could describe this workout in a sentence what would it be?
The Perfect 10 Workout is about channeling your inner Jane Fonda/80’s heroine. It’s about not taking yourself so seriously, making time in a day to laugh it out, steal some cookie dough, and do some high knees.
IMPORTANT QUESTION – If I do this workout and eat your cookies everyday do you promise I’ll lose weight? (i.e look like Karlie Kloss)
It’s about a healthy, happy, hilariously balanced lifestyle, not so much about losing weight!
OMG THE OUTFIT – Obsessed with the t-shirts – Can we buy one?
We begged costume designer Vickki Farrell to help make us fabulous so she hit up American Apparel, then got to crafting. She dyed, and lettered to put together some amazing pieces. The t-shirt is my ultimate Olivia Newton John moment. You could easily create your own!
THE SUPERMODEL – KARLIE KLOSS – Is she really a living breathing normal awesome beauty like she appears to be?
Karlie is the heart of gold everyone is looking for and so incredibly caring, nurturing and humble. More than having a great time, baking and sharing tasty, good-for-you kookies, her mission is to help give back. The sale of each Perfect 10 Kookie provides 10 meals to school children around the world. The woman is Wonder Woman. She. Never. Stops. And she means every second of it!
SURPRISE US! – What don’t we know about Karlie Kloss?
She is a cookie dough fanatic!
SURPRISE US AGAIN!! – What don’t we know about Christina Tosi?
The 5Boro Kookie just replaced my nightly cornflake-choc chip-marshmallow-in-bed cookie!
OOOOH AND NOW SHOCK US!!! – with an unexpected ingredient that is currently swirling in that crack pied out brain of yours?
I’m really jonesing on caraway ground into a powder and green curry. Stay tuned!!!
Oh, we will… Thanks Tosi. Exciting times. I’m off to work out but first .. let me grab a cookie.
