Heidi Klum is a German supermodel, actress, TV presenter, fashion designer, television producer and occasional singer. She is also the hostess of Project Runway and Germany's Next Topmodel, and is known for her modeling work with Victoria's Secret. Heidi Klum has been on the cover of most of the well-known fashion magazines, including Vogue Magazine, ELLE and Marie Claire. She became widely known after appearing on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and for her work with Victoria's Secret and gained popularity as part of Thomas Zeumer's Metropolitan Models. In December 2004, she became the host, judge and executive producer of the reality show Project Runway on the U.S. cable television channel Bravo, in which fashion designers compete for the opportunity to show their line at New York Fashion Week and receive money to launch their own fashion line. She received an Emmy Awards nomination for the show for each of the first three seasons. In 2008, Klum and Project Runway received a Peabody Award, the first time a reality show had won the award. In early 2004, while still pregnant, Heidi began a relationship with musician Seal. Klum and Seal married on May 10, 2005, on a beach in Mexico. They have two children together, both boys: Henry Günther Ademola Dashtu Samuel, born September 12, 2005 in Los Angeles, California and Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel born November 22, 2006 in Los Angeles. According to Klum, Flavio Briatore is not involved in Leni's life, and she has stated emphatically that "Seal is Leni's father."
Heidi Klum seen on Dec 30 2012 in Brentwood, CA. Heidi Klum was caught by the paparazzi as she bummed around Brentwood, CA on December 30, accompanied by her daughters Leni and Lou and her new boyfriend Martin Kirsten. For her casual street style, Heidi started with a dark pair of baggy jeans (for a similar option, check out Sold Design Lab's Ann Straight Paper Bag in Dark Blue) and then wore a white t-shirt with a tan motorcycle jacket (try Free People's Sunburst Moto Jacket in Nude) and a bright and colorful patterned scarf. For two vibrant options here on CoutureCandy, take a peek at either LOV Project's Tindha Scarf in Mulberry or Lotta Stensson's Mango Massai Scarf. A pair of navy blue wedge sneakers and round aviator sunglasses added the final touches to HK's outfit. What are your thoughts on this look, readers - cool and casual, or too much going on? In other Klum news, the supermodel recently chatted with Ocean Drive about finding the line between tasteful and obscene when it comes to photo shoots at a very early age: "When you have a good body, photographers will often be like, ‘Yeah, let’s take this off, and why don’t we lose this too,’ and you can quickly end up not wearing much clothing. You have to be careful and strong at saying no, especially when you’re younger and on your own. Not everyone is cool and has your best interest [at heart]. But Rankin has always made sure, when some of my shoots would be more on the naked side, that they wouldn’t look raunchy. They were sexy, yes, but very classy." Good advice for aspiring models, don't you think?
Heidi Klum seen on Sep 14 2012 in Calabasas, CA. Heidi Klum made an appearance in Calabasas, CA on September 14 at Babies"R"Us, where she was debuting her new children's clothing line that is called Truly Scrumptious. For the event, Heidi decided to sport some freshly dyed pink highlights, proving that the colored hair trend is showing no signs of slowing down. Outfit wise, HK chose a gorgeous magenta dress (for two options from Zoa that are very similar in color to Heidi's dress, check out the Shirred Up Neck Dress in Magenta and the Sueded Shirt Dress in Magenta) that she paired with strappy snakeskin heels and a gold bangle (check out Satya Jewelry's Limitless Bangle in Turquoise). An oversized statement ring (try Natalie B. Jewelry's Leyla Adjustable Ring in Turquoise) was the final accessory for her chic appearance. In other Heidi news, I told you recently that Seal accused her of cheating on him with her bodyguard... well it turns out that Heidi was hooking up with him, but only AFTER she split with Seal, according to her. Says Heidi: "It just started. So I don't know. I don't know where it's going to go. I've known him for four years and he's been with our family for the last four years. He's cared for, our entire family mostly for our four children, helped us tremendously. I trust him... I mean, I trust him with my children's life. He's a great man, you know and we just got to know each other from a completely different side. It's very hard when, when you then start seeing somebody again, for the first time it's hard then when all of a sudden everyone is watching you. It's almost like you can't even have a real, proper chance in a way." Thoughts, readers?
Heidi Klum seen on Sep 05 2012 in New York, NY. Heidi Klum was seen looking beautiful as always at the Brian Atwood flagship store celebration that was held at NYC's Four Seasons restaurant on September 5, and was of course rocking a pair of strappy Brian Atwood heels for the event. Additionally, Heidi paired a strapless high-low Max Azria dress (for a very similar version at a fraction of the price, check out Alexia Admor's High Low Dress in Antique White) with a vintage skinny waist belt (try Elise M.'s Natalie Skinny Waist Belt in Black for a similar option) and gold hoop earrings (Satya Jewelry's Undaunted Earrings in Carnelian are something special). From there, a messy updo and a silver double finger ring (try Soho Collection's Leaf Two Finger Ring in Silver) added the finishing touches to her fashionable ensemble. What is your take on this look for Heidi - is it a good one in your opinion? As I'm sure you've heard recently, things in the Heidi and Seal split are getting quite nasty, due to recent allegations that H cheated on S - with her bodyguard! It all started when Seal said, "I would have preferred Heidi to have shown a little bit more class and at least waited until we separated first before deciding to fornicate with the help." Well, Heidi decided to address the rumors (and Seal's comments) on Katie Couric's new show. Says Heidi: "It was a unique choice of words. I'm used to it. Other people aren't. When we were together, I never looked at a another man." When they were together? Is that Heidi's sly way of saying that now she is hooking up with her bodyguard?
Heidi Klum seen on Dec 23 2011 in West Hollywood, CA. Heidi Klum was photographed leaving the restaurant Lemonade in West Hollywood on December 23, and was accompanied by her bodyguard as she made her way back to her car. For her casual-cool outfit, Heidi chose a pair of ripped J Brand 912 Jeans in Zombie (for a pair that's similar in both wash and distressing, try Work Custom Jeans' Zip Skinny in Acid Rain) and then wore a graphic printed tank (the print of Hard Tail's Feather Thermal Tank in Gray is similar to Heidi's) under a slouchy, oversized sweater (I love Michael Lauren's Oversize Sweater in Ice). From there, Heidi wore a studded pair of sandals (for a unique pair, check out Plenty by Tracy Reese's Sandal with Buckle in Black) and toted a brown and black tote with snakeskin accents. A pair of aviators completed HK's ensemble. Is this something you would wear for a casual lunch, readers? In other Heidi news, it was recently announced that the "Project Runway" host will be partaking in "The Price is Right"'s upcoming "celebrity week." Heidi will be joining fellow celebs such as Neil Patrick Harris, Jenny McCarthy and Snoop Dogg for the show's first ever all-celeb lineup. Are any of you planning on tuning in to watch Heidi, Neil, Snoop and Jenny play the famous "Price is Right" games?
Heidi Klum seen on Jul 15 2011 in New York, NY. It seems that the sheer trend is sweeping Hollywood! From one sheer starlet to another, Heidi Klum was papped out and about with her kids Leni and Henry in NYC on July 15. For her ensemble, Heidi wore a sheer black top (like Kimberly Taylor's Crinkled T-Shirt in Black) with a pair of cuffed shorts (try Mara Hoffman's Pleated Short in Black), and then slipped into a pair of woven black sandals. Heidi kept her hair and makeup simple, and accessorized with only a pair of sunnies, small studs (I love Christie Martin Jewelry's Small Sharktooth Earrings in 14k Gold), and a few gold bangles (check out Asha by ADM's Trinity Bangles in Gold). Do you think this is an appropriate outfit to be running around town in with your young children, readers? Or are you feeling the sheer trend and feel it's acceptable on pretty much every occasion? I mean, Katie Holmes wore a super sheer top (see below) on date night with Tom, and now Heidi's running errands in an equally see-through top. Weigh in by leaving a comment! In other Heidi news, the German beauty is celebrating the Emmy nomination for her hit reality show "Project Runway." Says Heidi: "We’re excited and we’re celebrating. We’re gonna open a bottle of champagne!" Heidi also shared that she has multiple projects of her own on the horizon, such as a clothing line that will be sold on Amazon, a jewelry collection, and her own perfume. She notes "I love doing it and being busy. I’m like a crazy maniac." That's one way to put it!
Heidi Klum seen on Jul 28 2010 in New York, NY. The always gorgeous Heidi Klum was spotted premiering the 8th season of the successful fashion design show "Project Runway" in NYC on July 28, opting for a more fashion-forward look than her usual slinky, body con dresses. Rocking a Givenchy Spring 2010 white jumpsuit (try Gold Hawk's Camisole Jumpsuit in Oriental Beige for something similar) with the black blazer (opt for Wish's Glory Days Jacket in Black or Tt Collection's Dylan in Black) as seen on the runway, Heidi brought the attitude to match. She finished off her look with a chic updo and a pair of firetruck red YSL Trib Two's. For a more subdued, yet still pretty and summertime appropriate, pair of heels, try Coye Nokes' Jacqueline 70 Peep Toe in Sugar Coral. What are your thoughts on Heidi's ensemble here, readers? Do you think she pulls it off? In other HK news, it seems that she's on the verge of deciding what her Emmy's dress will be as she is nominated in the Outstanding Host For A Reality or Reality Competition Program category. Says Heidi, "I have been putting my little feelers out there to some designer friends of mine and I'm getting close to whittling something down. You have to. This is now where the fashion world sort of closes for August and everyone hops on their boats to drink champagne and disappear for a few weeks, so you have to know what you're doing before." Good planning, Heidi!
Heidi Klum seen on Dec 28 2009 in Aspen, CO. Supermodel Heidi Klum was spotted bundled up for an afternoon of ice skating in Aspen, Colorado with her hubby Seal earlier today, December 28, while her children Leni, Henry, Johan and baby Lou looked on. For her cold weather 'fit, Heidi stayed snuggly in an oversized white sweater (stay cozy and warm this winter with Whitley Kros' Raleigh Cardigan in Cream/Gold or C&C California's Swing Cardigan in Ivory) and scarf (try Diesel's Dropin Jacquard Scarf in 912) that she paired with slightly distressed light wash denim (similar to Hudson Jeans' Collin Skinny Jean in Martin). Accessory wise, HK topped her famous noggin with a knit cap, along with brown aviators and warm black leather gloves. So cute! Heidi's famous husband recently spoke out to Britain's Closer Magazine about the fam's holiday plans, and said: "We always try to have a white Christmas each year, so we’re going to go to the snow. We’ll rent a house in whatever resort we go to, and it’s guaranteed to be very noisy. Heidi dresses everyone up on Christmas Eve and they open their presents, it’s great fun." That's so great - nothing beats family time during this time of year. Seal continued to discuss both his and Heidi's hectic work schedule, and how they've both taken some time off for the holidays. He says, "Heidi’s done a couple of things since Lou was born, but she’s not working until January (10). You have to put your foot down come Christmas time - there are so many jobs that both of us have turned down." Good for them!
Heidi Klum seen on Aug 19 2008 in London, England. Heidi Klum and hubby Seal were spotted leaving the Claridges Hotel in London, England on August 18, heading off for an afternoon tea date, followed by shopping for photography equipment in Calumet. Such a sophisticated couple! To steal Heidi's simple yet chic outfit, start with a long black coat (like Ecoganik's Mia Jacket in Black) over a sheer, floral printed top (check out Black Halo's Bustier Babydoll Top in Print) and skinny black jeans (similar to 7 for All Mankind's Edie Zipper Jean in Black). Finish your look off with black patent heels, oversized shades (JeeVice Optic's Evil in Black/Fluo Orange are similar in shade to Heidi's), and a decorative gemstone necklace- and voila. Auf wiedersehen, tacky style! In other HK news, the "Project Runway" host will be taking her hosting duties to the next level by co-hosting the Emmy Awards this year, along with Ryan Seacrest, Howie Mandel from "Deal or No Deal," Tom Bergeron from "Dancing With the Stars," and Jeff Probst from "Survivor." Battle of the reality show hosts! In addition to hosting, all five of the hosts are noms for the "Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality Competition Program" Award, which is a new category this year. What do you think- should Heidi totally win that category or what?
Heidi Klum seen on Jul 15 2008 in New York, NY. Heidi Klum made an appearance on "The Today Show" this morning, July 14, in NYC, and took the time to wave to her fans and sign autographs as she left the filming in the Rockefeller Plaza studios. Wearing a sequined mini dress (Beau Soleil's Beau Tank Dress in Perla is a similar shade of pale grey, while LaROK's Sequined Patchwork Mini Dress in Grey and Delirious Mini Dress in Wood are flirty little sequined numbers that are perfect for any summertime soiree) with nude patent leather Loubs and minimal jewelry, Klum looked flawless as ever. While many fans of "Project Runway" are kind of freaked out over the switch from Bravo to Lifetime in terms of how it will effect the quality of the show, Heidi advises that no one should worry. She says, "We’re totally focused on the show— on the challenges, the drama. I’m not already with one foot over at Lifetime. Both of my feet are here, and I’m concentrating on making a beautiful show." Phew- at least Heidi's on board 100%!
Heidi Klum seen on Jun 03 2008 in Cologne, Germany. Heidi Klum was spotted getting up close and personal with a cuddly friend, her teddy bear, at a press conference for Douglas and DKMS LIFE, a cosmetics retail chain, which was held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Cologne, Germany on June 3. To get Heidi's polished look, start with a black top (Zoa's Scoop Band Sleeve Top in Black is a more casual version that also comes in white) tucked into a pair of dark wash high-rise denim (like James Jeans' Hunter High Rise Straight Leg Jean in Pacific). Finish your look off with a skinny black belt (check out Rough Roses' Antique Belt with Elongated Buckle in Black) and black patent pumps, and you're all set. While we all know that Klum is known for her breathtaking good looks, it's nice to see that she is using her fame for a beneifical cause. This press conference that she attended was devoted to supporting women who have cancer by organizing cosmetic workshops to help them learn to put makeup on, as well as giving them makeovers. It really is the little things in life that matter!
Heidi Klum seen on May 25 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Heidi Klum was spotted having a sweet goodbye at LAX on May 25 with hubby Seal as he gave her a tender kiss as she headed towards her departing flight with the children. Going for airport-casual, Heidi started with a medium wash pair of denim (like 7 for All Mankind's Straight Leg Jean in New York) paired with a black and gold tee (check out Misile's Stenciled T-Shirt in Black) and black shawl (similar to Elizabeth Gillett Ltd's ). Klum accessorized her look with a pair of gradient shades (take a look at Nour's Kiara Sunglasses in Manner Mania) and her favorite purple studded flats, which look like Loubs to me. Heidi spoke to "Ellen" recently about how she desires to follow in the footsteps of Christina Aguilera and her husband, in having "naked Sundays" to liven up her life with Seal. She went on to say that she and Seal keep their sex life interesting by keeping a timetable, saying, "You just make time. We say, 'Hey baby, two o’clock in the attic' or 'six o’clock in the closet'. The attic is nice. It is a nice-looking attic." I love that she added in that quote that the attic is nice looking. What, Heidi- if it wasn't nice looking, you and Seal wouldn't want to get freaky up there? :)
Heidi Klum seen on May 03 2008 in Beverly Hills, CA. Heidi Klum and daughter Leni were spotted heading to a children's birthday party in Beverly Hills on May 3, and both girls looked absolutely adorable from head to toe. If Heidi's vibrantly colored outfit is inspiring you, start with a pair of bright blue denim (like Denim of Virtue's even-brighter-than-Heidi's Patience Slim Boot 5 Pocket Jean in Jade) and pair with a silky dark blue tunic (similar to Ziji's Alice Tunic in Blue). Next, slip a cute cropped cardigan over the tunic (I love the shade of Autumn Cashmere's Cropped Cardigan in Violette), and finish with a cool pair of flats and gold aviators (like JeeVice Optics' The Crybaby II Sunglasses in Brushed Gold). In case you didn't hear, famous supermodel Iman recently semi-dissed Heidi, seeing as though Heidi hosts the American version of "Project Runway," and Iman hosts the Canadian version. Iman was quoted as saying, "Definitely Heidi and I come from two different places. I’m not belittling Heidi Klum, but I have been in fashion much more than she has. Not to toot my own horn, but I have been one of the best runway girls. I know clothes, and I know about working hand in hand with designers. I could go on and on." Oh Iman, you're just sooo cool. Instead of getting catty, Heidi responded by saying, "She’s done all the big, big fashion shows I’ve never done. And she has met all the big, big designers in the world. I never really fit in the clothes. I tried, but I never got to walk in Paris and walk in all the big, big shows." Such a dignified response, see ladies- modesty is attractive!
Heidi Klum seen on Apr 12 2008 in West Hollywood, CA. Heidi Klum was spotted in West Hollywood on April 12 looking very Sienna Miller-esque, but sleek and stylish as always. Klum spent the day out and about with two boys, their grandmother Erna and three assistants (thats one and a half assistants per kid!), running errands after dropping daughter Leni off at her ballet class. Sporting a funky graphic tee with sophisticated dark denim (like James Jeans' Hector High Rise Bootcut Jean in Reisling), Heidi accessorized her stylish yet casual look with an armful of bracelets and bangles (check out Accessories & Beyond's Home Inspired Suede Bracelet with Charms), black shades (similar to Nour's Baba Sunglasses in Oro Bianco) and Prada's black fringe bag. In recent Heidi news, besides being honored as one of the most stylish stars in Hollywood at Us Weekly's Hot Hollywood 2008 Event, it seems that Heidi dreams of redesigning the Starbucks uniform for all employees. Yes, you heard me right! Heidi says, "I go to the same Starbucks every day in Beverly Hills and they're like, 'Can you please tell them that we want to have new outfits?'. It would be fun, because so many people would see the results." I've heard of celebrities designing their own lines, but designing uniforms for a mega-company like Starbucks? That would be hilarious and very interesting to see what Klum would come up with! What do you think- should Heidi K. redesign the Starbucks uniform?
Heidi Klum seen on Apr 06 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Heidi Klum was spotted doing some shopping and attending a party with her children in Los Angeles on April 6, rocking a shorter 'do with texturized bangs. Loving it! Heidi's jeans-and-a-tee outfit was also anything but basic, as Heidi chose a colorful, Asian-inspired graphic tee (check out Los Angeles Royalty's Mulan Tee in White) and paired with a pair of faded grey skinnies (I'm loving the button detailing on Joe's Jeans' similar Button Fly Chelsea Jean in Angelica). Accessory wise (starting at the bottom up), Heidi close a pair of killer purple studded flats and paired with pink and gold rings, as well as with a pair of fashionista shades (like JeeVice Optics' Edgy Sunglasses in Oyster Bronze). Ever since it was announced that Heidi's smash hit reality show, "Project Runway", was switching networks from Bravo to Lifetime, there has been a constant buzz about how Bravo was not very pleased about this. Perez Hilton is now reporting that the Weinstein brothers were so inclined to swap networks due to the fact that they received around $600,000 per episode, and now will be netting over $1 million per ep! Talk about a pay raise!! What do you think- will you still tune in to Runway even though it's on Lifetime?
