UPDATE: Karlie took to her Twitter late last night to confirm the news herself. The rising model first tweeted a rather cryptic tweet, saying "Today was a game changer ;) " and then another two hours later that read, "No one is more bummed than me to be missing out on all of the #NYFW fun – sending all my love to NYC! xx." We're now anxiously awaiting news on what this "game changer" and "big opportunity" could possibly be!

UPDATE: Fashion correspondent at the Daily Beast, Isabel Wilkinson, confirmed via Twitter that Karlie will not be modeling at New York Fashion Week. Isabel tweeted, "@AlinaChoCNN Rumors are true: Karlie Kloss won't walk at #NYFW because an "engagement has come up," her spokesperson tells me."

Say it isn't so! Rumor has it Karlie Kloss will not be walking at New York Fashion Week.

The surprising news came from CNN's wily fashion correspondent Alina Cho, who tweeted, "HEARING: @karliekloss cancelled all catwalk appearances in NY for a big opportunity... #nyfw #backstagepass #cnn."

This comes as big news, seeing as the model maven had quite the successful circuit at the recent couture shows in Paris. She opened at Christian Dior and Atelier Versace, walked for Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel Couture and even closed for Elie Saab.

We've been watching Karlie's Twitter feed, but unfortunately she's kept mum on the topic since the news first broke late last night. The jury's still out on what this "big opportunity" is that's keeping the model du jour from the New York shows, but we're guessing it's a European fashion powerhouse. When Donatella Versace calls, you run.
