Date of Birth : Jun 1st 1973
German supermodel, actress, TV presenter, fashion designer, television producer and singer from Bergisch Gladbach, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. She is best known as the hostess of Project Runway and for her modeling work with Victoria’s Secret.
Born in Germany, Heidi started modelling at 18 “just for fun” and won a presigious competition. She is presently signed with Elite Model Management and continues to pursue both an acting and modelling career. You can catch her on the big screen as a VIP patron in “54” (1998).
Heidi Klum appeared in several episodes of “Spin City” (1996) to popular acclaim. Her presence on the catwalk and in front of the camera from Victoria’s Secret to Sports Illustrated is irresistable.
Klum has designed her own clothing lines (including one for infants) that were featured in the German mail-order catalog “Otto.” She also has designed shoes for Birkenstock, jewellery for Mouawad, and swimsuits – featured in the 2002 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue – that, for a limited time, were available for sale through her personal website. She was one of the designers of the Victoria’s Secret lingerie line “The Body”, which was named after the nickname she received following her first Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show appearance. Her Mouawad jewelry collection debuted on the cable shopping network QVC on September 14, 2006, and 14 of the 16 styles sold out after only 36 minutes. A second line of her jewellery collection debuted on QVC on April 14, 2007, with similar success.
Klum is also the mother of Flavio Briatore’s daughter named Helene “Leni” Klum, born on May 4, 2004 in New York City, New York.
Klum appeared in episodes of Malcolm in the Middle (as a toothless hockey player) and Cursed, and has made several guest appearances as herself in various shows, including Spin City, Sex and the City and CSI: Miami.
