What happened to Karlie Kloss on Project Runway?

It’s currently unconfirmed why Karlie Kloss left Project Runway, however, season 19 filming may have come at an inconvenient time for the model as she was pregnant with her first child.

Karlie and her husband, Joshua Kusher, welcomed a baby boy in March 2021 named Levi Joseph.

Bravo announced that a Project Runway season 19 preview would be released on July 1st 2021 when Karlie would’ve had a newborn baby to look after.

Karlie only appeared on two Project Runway seasons. Some fans may have wondered whether her exit had anything to do with that ‘dinner with the Kushners’ comment but it’s unlikely that the drama would’ve caused Karlie to leave the show. Following the memorable reality TV moment, Karlie said on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in 2020 that she was “honoured” to become “one of the first memes of the decade“.

The 29-year-old took to Instagram in May 2021 to share a selection of photos of her pregnancy and baby captioned: “my heart is full“.

In September, she also uploaded to IG more photos of herself with friends and family captioned: “a summer full of loving”.

Besides being a mum, she also attended the MET Gala and has uploaded lots of event and modelling photos to the ‘gram.
