Today, supermodel Karlie Kloss turns 23 years old, and although she’s had a pretty spectacular couple of years, this one’s been particularly impressive.

Not only has the 6-foot-one beauty continued her fashion domination with campaigns for Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, and Kate Spade, but she also convinced any doubters that she was more than just a pretty face (and a killer pair of legs) with the news that she’s headed to NYU, the growing of her healthy cookie biz Karlie’s Kookies, and the fact that she launched a scholarship for young girls who are interested in coding.

She also became a legit household name this year, thanks to the fact that she’s besties with Taylor Swift, appearing alongside the pop singer (and a clique of their other BFFS) in almost every paparazzi shot, and also on the March cover of Vogue.

Take a look at her milestones from the last 12 months below, and join us in wishing this very modern supermodel a happy birthday!
