Biography

Known throughout the modeling world as "The Body" because of her sparkling blonde beauty and near-perfect figure, the 5'10" Heidi Klum was more than just a runway mannequin, she was a veritable fashion and modeling empire. Klum had one of the most successful modeling careers of all time and was featured on the covers of Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Glamour and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, among many others. In 1997, she became one of the most famous of Victoria Secret's Angels and served a spokeswoman for the lingerie retailer for 13 years while also hosting several of their fashion shows. A mainstay in the world of fashion, Klum parlayed her status to the screen with a recurring role on "Spin City" (ABC, 1996-2002) and in making her film debut in the indie "Blow Dry" (2001). She went on to serve as host and executive producer of the hit reality series, "Project Runway" (Bravo/Lifetime, 2004- ), where she and her team of judges scrutinized the fashions of competing designers, as well as serve as a judge on "America's Got Talent" (NBC, 2006- ). Of course, her personal life was the source of endless coverage thanks to a high-profile romance with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore and her seven-year marriage to R&B singer, Seal, which ended in divorce in 2012. With her down-to-earth appeal, Klum was the face and name behind designer clothes, fragrances, swimsuits and jewelry, and was an amorous presence in the harsh and often unforgiving world of fashion.
