Though our minds are foggy and fraught with Halloween costume preparations and all things Hocus Pocus, Neiman Marcus has reminded us that another holiday is coming faster than some of us care to acknowledge. The store has already unleashed its Christmas cheer in an unbearably cute animated video featuring supermodel (and number-one entry on our boyfriends' wish lists) Karlie Kloss. In this "Christmas Book" campaign, the high-end one-stop shop juxtaposes Kloss' enviable height with miniature line-drawn figures — all of whom appear to be celebrating the holidays in style.
In one vignette, jewel-toned earrings hang like ornaments on a Christmas tree. In another, a giant furry handbag provides comfort for tiny animated people coming off a ski ramp. And yet, it's safe to say that Karlie Kloss stole the show despite the cartoons. The leggy lady prances from scene to scene, wearing on-trend assortments of metallics and Hepburn-inspired updos. It's almost too much for our current Halloween-obsessed hearts to handle...almost. The supermodel's quirky enthusiasm actually makes us feel a little less Grinch stressed about having present season pressed upon us before we've even booked our haunted house tickets. Now, that is a Christmas miracle come early.
