Karlie Kloss experienced a Marilyn Monroe moment on Thursday as her $125 white Babaton for Aritzia ‘Jude’ pleated skirt was lifted over a subway grating in New York City.

The 23-year-old supermodel was strolling in the Chelsea neighborhood when she inadvertently re-enacted the famous scene from Marilyn’s 1955 film The Seven Year Itch.

Karlie wore a below-the-knee pleated white skirt similar to the skirt of Marilyn’s ivory cocktail dress that she wore in the Billy Wilder-directed movie.

The former Victoria’s Secret Angel model paired her white skirt with a blue cotton T-shirt from French designer Vanessa Seward that read ‘Une femme francaise’ up front.

Karlie completed her ensemble with open-toed white sandals.

The top model had her blonde hair gathered in a high bun but opted for wavy, loose locks in the afternoon.

Glamorous: The beauty wore just a hint of natural makeup in the beginning of the day, later adding pink lip gloss, brown eye shadow and black liner

Be a femme Francaise like Karlie with her Vanessa Seward teeshirt

Karlie always had that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to her star quality and today she confirmed it with her navy tee by Vanessa Seward.

This simple classic bears the phrase, ‘Une Femme Française ‘ (a French woman) and Karlie paired it perfectly with a simple white pleated skirt and sandals.

Très chic indeed!

Vanessa Seward is a French designer that has done work for A.P.C.,Tom Ford and Chanel but has since debuted a line of classic and basic ready-to-wear pieces.

Case in point, Karlie’s slogan top.

Karlie spent the Fourth Of July weekend partying at Taylor Swift’s star-studded beach bash in Rhode Island but was back to work on Wednesday in a photoshoot for EXPRESS in the Big Apple.

The hazel-eyed beauty stepped away from Victoria’s Secret in 2015 to enroll at New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study.

She also took a coding class last year that inspired her to start the Kode With Klossy program to introduce more girls and young women to computer coding.

Karlie recently hosted a two-week coding academy for young women in St. Louis and another was scheduled to start on Monday in New York City.

She’s also been keeping busy with her Klossy channel on YouTube that offers lifestyle and beauty tips as well as behind the scenes clips of her modelling gigs and travels.

Karlie’s latest video uploaded on Thursday featured the model sharing a simple three-ingredient recipe for pancakes made up of just one egg, one banana and a handful of oats.
