Who says you have to pick between brains and beauty? Karlie Kloss has both!

The in-demand, top-paid model is taking a break from the runway. She’s enrolled in a course at NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, a small interdisciplinary college within New York University that was founded in 1972 as the University Without Walls.

“My ambition is really just to study things that I’m curious about,” Kloss told Self magazine’s August issue.

“I want to study computer science. I want to study psychology. I’m fascinated by space. I want to study art history.”

The paparazzi caught Karlie hailing a cab and heading to her first day at NYU.

For the occasion, Karlie dressed like a typical student. She threw on a black sweater and a pair of cuffed Frame “Le Petit Ami” relaxed jeans.

Like any ordinary student, Karlie completed her look with a backpack. Her pick? A leather piece from Mansur Gavriel.

We have to admit — Karlie may have been heading to her first day of school, but she looked like she was heading to a magazine photoshoot.

Karlie has owned those black flat sandals for years and has been photographed in them numerous times in the past. Can you help us ID them?

The scalloped edges hint that they could be Azzedine Alaïa — but we’re still not entirely sure.
