So he's not just any ole stylist wielding a scissors while half cut - this is Brandon Maxwell, the man who designed Karlie's dress for the night.
Here is said dress in its full majesty...
And here it is being butchered at some point during the night. While Brandon merrily drawls "OK, we're drinking and cutting!" Kloss says ""This is a bad idea... Or maybe it's brilliant, I don't know!"
As it turns out, it was for the best, for here she is rocking the mini at the after party at New York Standard Hotel.
Brandon (who has designed gunas for the Oscars and the Emmys for Lady Gaga) even gave it a little slit. What a pro.
