Karlie Kloss stars as a femme fatale embarking on a seemingly dangerous liaison in Tamara Mellon's artistic short film, titled 'High Heels and Sharp Knives.' Mellon was the former co-founder, president and creative director for Jimmy Choo, before leaving to launch her own self-titled brand. In contrast to most of the fashion business, Mellon's brand intends to supply bi-monthly collections that feature the most relevant items at any given time. She notes,
"We’re living in a world where women want to buy now wear now. They don’t want to look at shows and then have products in stores six months later."
In the film, directed by Rie Rasmussen, Kloss answers a retro dial-phone, after which she leaves to run an ominous-looking errand. The film cuts to her washing what appears to be blood off her hands. Of course, it ends up that she was just preparing steak for her lover, but it doesn't change the fact that Kloss is dressed to kill throughout the entire film.
