Biography

Heidi Klum (IPA /klʊm/) (born June 1, 1973) is a 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.

In December 2004, she became the host and judge 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.

She has produced two fragrances, called "Heidi Klum" and "Me", which are currently available for sale through her official website.

Germany's Next Topmodel is a German reality television show which pits contestants against each other in a variety of competitions to determine who will win a modeling contract with IMG. Klum is the host and co-producer of the show along with model Tyra Banks. The first season or "cycle" of the show was won by Lena Gercke and the second cycle was won by Barbara Meier.

Klum is also an artist and has had several of her paintings appear in various art magazines in the U.S. On September 27, 2002 she dedicated a sculpture she painted called "Dog with Butterflies" to commemorate the role of rescue dogs in the aftermath of September 11.

In 2004, Klum co-authored Heidi Klum's Body of Knowledge with Elle magazine editor Alexandra Postman. The book gives Klum's biography as well as her advice on becoming successful. Prior to that, Klum had been an occasional guest columnist for the German television network RTL's website. She has also written an essay for the German newspaper Die Zeit.

Her other projects have included music and video games. She is featured in the 2004 James Bond video game Everything or Nothing, where she plays a villain Dr. Katya Nadanova. She has appeared in several music videos, including Jamiroquai's video "Love Foolosophy" from their album A Funk Odyssey, and Kelis's "Young, Fresh N' New," off her second album Wanderland.

Klum married celebrity hairstylist Ric Pipino on September 6, 1997. The couple divorced in November 2002. Following the divorce she had brief relationships with Red Hot Chili Peppers lead singer Anthony Kiedis and Formula One manager Flavio Briatore.

In the autumn of 2003 she became pregnant with Flavio Briatore's child. On the day Klum announced the pregnancy, Briatore was photographed kissing Fiona Swarovski, a jewelery heiress. Klum and Briatore split up shortly thereafter. On May 4, 2004, she gave birth to a daughter, Helene "Leni" Klum, named after Klum's grandmother.

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.
