What Is Model Karlie Kloss’s Net Worth, and How Is She Related to the Trump Family?
Supermodel Karlie Kloss married her boyfriend of six years, entrepreneur and investor Joshua Kushner, in an intimate ceremony on October 18. Fewer than 80 guests attended the event in upstate New York, where Kloss walked down the aisle in a custom Dior gown.
The wedding brings Kloss, who is a Victoria’s Secret angel and the new host of Project Runway, into one of New York’s wealthiest families – the Kushners. It also comes with a close connection to Donald Trump.
Karlie Kloss is worth $20 million
Her new husband is worth even more. The 33-year-old younger son of real estate investor Charles Kushner has built a successful career in the tech industry. His venture capital firm Thrive Capital has invested in companies like Instagram, Slack, GitHub, and Instacart. He also founded Oscar Health, a tech-focused health insurance company. Celebrity Net Worth pegs his wealth at $800 million.
Her connection to the Trump family
So much love for you both as you begin forever together. ❤️ https://t.co/8lYSGrKpVu

Joshua Kushner is the younger brother of Jared Kushner. The elder Kushner brother is married to Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka. That means that Kloss is now sister-in-law to the daughter of the President of the United States.
Despite her close connection with the Trump family, Kloss has made it clear that she doesn’t share their political views. Kloss and Kushner attended a March for Our Lives rally for gun control in March 2018 and she publicly supported Trump’s opponent Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. Kushner also identifies as liberal and has shared tweets from Barack Obama. His did not vote for Trump either.
“Josh and I share a lot of the same liberal values that guide our lives and the things we stand for,” Kloss told Vogue earlier this year.
But that doesn’t mean the couple aren’t close with Jared and Ivanka. Ivanka Trump tweeted congratulations to Kloss after the wedding, though it wasn’t clear if she attended the ceremony. The two are reportedly friends and have been spotted attended events like the U.S. Open together. Kushner told Forbes he speaks with his brother, who is a senior advisor to the president, “every day” and is also close to Ivanka.
Why Taylor Swift wasn’t at Karlie Kloss’s wedding
What about Kloss’s BFF Taylor Swift? Kloss and Swift have been friends for years, but the “Look What You Made Me Do” singer wasn’t one of the guests at Kloss’s wedding. That’s because she’s currently on tour supporting her latest album, Reputation. The Australian leg of her tour began on Friday in Perth, and since flying there from New York takes more than a day it was impossible for her to make it to the ceremony.
Kloss and Kushner will reportedly have a second, larger wedding celebration in the spring of 2019, though. Perhaps Swift will be able to sing a song for the happy couple then.
