Early Life and Career
Klum was born in Bergisch-Gladbach, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, on June 1, 1973. She began her modeling career at the age of 18 after winning a contest in her home country of Germany. Klum had intended to become a designer before winning this award.
Klum eventually landed work with the lingerie company Victoria’s Secret after moving to New York, which helped raise her profile in the modeling world. She soon appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue in 1998, an honor sought after by many models. While her hourglass figure was unsuitable for the runways, Klum quickly became a fashion favorite, appearing in Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, and Harper’s Bazaar.
Movies and TV Shows
Klum ventured into acting while looking for other opportunities. One of her early roles was as a guest star on Michael J. Fox’s political sitcom Spin City. Klum made her big screen debut in the hairdressing comedy Blow Dry (2001), alongside Alan Rickman, Josh Hartnett, Natasha Richardson, and Rachael Leigh Cook. More roles followed, including Ella Enchanted (2004), in which she co-starred with Anne Hathaway, and The Life and Death of Peter Sellers (2004), in which she co-starred with Geoffrey Rush and Charlize Theron. Klum portrayed another famous beauty, Ursula Andress, in Peter Sellers’ biopic.
On the professional front, Klum was instrumental in the creation of Project Runway, a competitive reality television series about fashion designers. She co-hosted the show with fashion consultant Tim Gunn and was one of the executive producers.
Project Runway debuted in December 2004 and quickly became a huge hit, earning a slew of Emmy nominations for Outstanding Reality Competition Program. Klum received an Emmy in 2013 for Outstanding Host of a Reality or Reality-Competition Program. She announced her departure from Project Runway after 16 seasons in September 2018.
‘Germany’s Next Topmodel’ and ‘America’s Got Talent’
Klum began her tenure as host of Germany’s Next Topmodel not long after the premiere of Project Runway. Klum was announced as a judge on the popular talent show America’s Got Talent in March 2013, joining former Spice Girl Melanie Brown and controversial radio/talk show host Howard Stern for the 2013 season. Simon Cowell’s popular talent show was hosted by Nick Cannon until 2017, when he was replaced by Tyra Banks. Klum left AGT after six seasons the following year.
‘Making the Cut’
Klum re-teamed with Gunn in March 2020 for the premiere of Amazon’s Making the Cut, a Project Runway-style series in which contestants jet to exotic locales in the hopes of creating the “next global fashion brand” and winning a $1 million cash prize. The show featured Naomi Campbell and Nicole Richie as judges, in addition to the familiar banter between its co-hosts.
Klum has also realized her childhood dream of becoming a designer, with her own jewelry line, lingerie line, and a line of Birkenstock shoes. She has also collaborated on a clothing line for Jordache Jeans and served as a spokesmodel for the company.
Klum married famed hairstylist Ric Pipino in 1997, but the couple divorced in 2002. Klum became pregnant with her first child in 2003, thanks to boyfriend Flavio Briatore, an Italian racecar team manager. However, the couple divorced shortly before the baby was born, and Klum began dating British singer Seal. Leni, her daughter, was born on May 4, 2004.
Klum’s life took another interesting turn shortly after the premiere of Project Runway in 2004. Seal proposed to her on the ice of a glacier in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. They married in May 2005 and welcomed their first child, Henry Gunther Ademola Dashtu Samuel, on September 12, 2005. Klum stunned many when she returned to modeling less than two months after the birth of her son, looking stunning as part of the nationally televised Victoria’s Secret fashion show.
Klum and Seal added another son, Johan, on November 26, 2006, and their first daughter, Lou, on October 9, 2009. Seal and Klum announced their divorce in January 2012, after nearly seven years of marriage. Klum filed for divorce from Seal in April 2012 (the divorce was finalized in 2014), and she soon began dating her bodyguard Martin Kristen. Her relationship with Kristen ended in 2014.
Klum dated Vito Schnabel from 2014 to 2017, and in 2018, she began dating Tokio Hotel guitarist Tom Kaulitz. Klum and Kaulitz got engaged in December 2018 and married in August 2019 in Capri, Italy.
