Heidi was beautiful young woman, and as a senior in High School in 1991, saw an ad for the Modeling ’92 Competition in a fashion magazine she and a friend (Karin) were reading. She did not think that she had the “right stuff” to enter, but her friend persuaded her that she was just as good looking as the models in the magazines and to send in her picture. Weeks later, she was one of forty finalists, and soon after was named Model ’92 by Petra magazine.
Winning this contest led to her signing a contract with the Metropolitan modeling agency after she finished school at the Integrierte Gesamtschule Paffrath, and from there her career only got better. She appeared on magazines and in fashion shows in Europe, then later in the United States. She first moved to Florida, but then went north to the more competitive market in New York City. After only a few years she became an “Angel” for Victoria Secrets in 1997 as well as appearing in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Editions the following year (on the cover in the 1998 edition).
In 1997, Heidi got married to hairstylist Ric Pipino, however, they separated in late 2002.
Beauty and good looks are not her only talents. She has also appeared on television and in the movies, including the movie 54 and in the James Bond thriller Everything or Nothing. Her actual television debut was supposed to be a small part on the television Spin City playing herself as a love interest of Michael J. Fox’s character in one episode in 1998. This wound up being a reoccurring role for her. Her move debut was in the comedy BlowDry the same year. She was also the host of the popular cable television show Wild On beginning in 2001 until 2004.
Heidi is also an entrepreneur. She has created her own lines of footwear, jewelry, perfume and most recently swimsuits. She became a mom in May 2004 to former boyfriend Flavio Briatore to daughter Leni. She became engaged to long time friend Seal (musician) in December 2004 and the are expecting a child sometime in the Fall of 2005. The couple got married in a secret ceremony in May 2005.
The beautiful Heidi was given the ultimate compliment to her beauty, she had a flower named afer her. She had a pink-petaled rose named after her in a ceremony in Cologne, Germany in May 2005. Klum gave birth to a son (with Seal) in September 2005 named Henry Günther Ademola Dashtu Samuel. In November 2006, she gave birth to another son, Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel.
