Rising model Karlie Kloss may supersede supermodel Elle Macpherson as she is named the new "body" in town.

Just weeks after she was awarded the lucrative Victoria's Secret contract as the lingerie giant's newest "angel", the 19-year-old model strutted her stuff for the photographer Steven Meisel to appear on the cover of the December issue of Vogue Italia.

The model appears nearly nude in the shoot, which shows off her long limbs in all their glory. The spread is accompanied by a flattering headline, which reads: "Body by Kloss".

The legedary photographer told telegraph.co.uk that he believes the fearless Karlie is "a model right down to her fingertips".

Can Karlie take the coveted "body" title from Elle Macpherson? We have compiled a gallery of pictures to help you decide.
