Karlie Kloss in Nova Scotia for Vogue shoot on Cape D'or near Parrsboro
Many locals unaware celebrity model was in their midst
Some Nova Scotians who would normally never glance at a fashion magazine may be eager to get their hands on a copy of Vogue's November issue.
In it, American supermodel Karlie Kloss is expected to be seen posing in couture fashions on the Bay of Fundy coastline at Cape D'or in Nova Scotia. The location was chosen for its rugged, isolated beauty, a person associated with the shoot told CBC News.
Hints that a celebrity was in the midst of the quiet communities of Parrsboro and Advocate began surfacing after Kloss posted short videos on her Instagram account.
The Instagram videos feature the Parrsboro lighthouse and the rocks at Cape D'or.
Twitter reaction was swift:

Crew scattered over local inns, motels
Calls to Parrsboro area businesses revealed that about 15 people arrived over the Labour Day weekend for the fashion shoot.
The crew was scattered over a number of local inns and motels including the Gillespie House Inn and the Sunshine Inn.
Lori Lynch of Gillespie House said the visitors were elusive.
"We never saw them. They were out the door at 4:30 a.m. and didn't return until after midnight," she said.
Lynch could not give the names of the people who were registered at the inn.
Over at the Sunshine Inn, Steffi Roeslen had two of the crew as guests, but could not identify the woman as a famous supermodel.
Had no idea who they were
"I have no idea. I know they were doing something with Vogue magazine."
She said those people only stayed one night, on Monday.
Harbour View Restaurant was "crazy busy" on Sunday night when a group of 15 called for a reservation, said owner Judy Wheaton. Eleven people from the fashion shoot showed up, she said.
Unfortunately, the restaurant was so busy, Wheaton was unable to get a sense of who was at the table.
"Then they came up to pay. One said, 'Keep your eye out for the November issue of Vogue U.S.A.,'" she said.
