Karlie Kloss, Despite Kushner In-Laws, Refuses to Vote for Trump

Karlie Kloss

Karlie Kloss may attend dinner with the Kushners — but she will not be voting for Donald Trump.

The Project Runway host clarified on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live that her political preferences lean blue, following a dramatic moment in which a contestant threw shade at her family ties. Kloss tied the knot in 2018 with Joshua Kushner, the brother of Jared, President Trump's son-in-law and senior advisor.

“Andy, I’m sure I’m not the only person in this country who does not necessarily agree with their family on politics,” Kloss told Andy Cohen. “I voted as a Democrat in 2016 and I plan to do the same in 2020.”

The model and former Victoria's Secret Angel went on to detail her record of progressive activism to the gay host.

“I’m very passionate about different issues,” Kloss said. “You know, women’s reproductive health and I’m very involved with Planned Parenthood, as are you. Next time we’re both home in St. Louis, you should come and volunteer with me.”

Cohen prefaced the conversation with a clip from this season of Project Runway. In the viral moment, designer Brandon Maxwell critiqued contestant Tyler Neasloney's design of a dress for Kloss to be worn at a Parisian fashion event. Maxwell saw the ensemble as not be fit to be worn “anywhere.”

“Not even to dinner with the Kushners?” Neasloney shot back, leaving Kloss and the other judges momentarily flummoxed. 

“I was going to Paris, that was the challenge here,” Kloss replied. Neasloney was eliminated that episode.

"Honestly, the real tragedy of this whole thing is no one is talking about how terrible that dress was," Kloss told Cohen. "That's why he went home."
