Born on June 1, 1973, Heidi Klum began her career in the modeling industry. Since her early beginnings, she has become famous for her role as a fashion designer, entrepreneur and television host. Although she was born in Germany, Klum currently has a dual citizenship from the United States and Germany. One of her first internationally recognized projects was on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. By 1997, she became a Victoria's Secret Angel. Her various activities have earned her an estimated net worth of $70 million.
Klum started modeling after winning the Model 92 contest. To win, she had to beat 25,000 contestants. Through this contest, she was signed on to Metropolitan Models in 1997. She has appeared on the cover of Marie Claire, Vogue and Elle. On television, Heidi Klum has worked as a hostess and judge on Project Runway. Her role on the show earned her the Peabody Award.
