Heidi Klum was born on June 1, 1973 in Westphalia, Germany. Heidi Klum (pronounced "Kloom") Heidi's father, Gunther, worked for a cosmetics company, while her mother, Erna, was a hairdresser. While she was still eighteen years old and still in high school, she came across an ad for a model competition in her area while reading a magazine. While she was intrigued by the idea, she never even dreamed of the possibility of entering, much less of winning, but her friend had a different attitude and encouraged her to send in some photos. Her first modeling gigs were for the Petrol catalogue. She modeled in fashion capitals such as Paris and Milan. When she finally moved to the States she worked in Miami and then moved to New York City. She is best known for posing for Sport's Illustrated Swimsuit Issue's and as one of Victoria's Secret's Angel models.
In December of 2004, she became the host 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. In December of 2005, in addition to hosting the second season of Project Runway, she became the host of Germany's Next Top Model, the German version of America's Next Top Model, which aired on the German network Prosieben. The show was a ratings success, but was not without controversy. German feminist groups encouraged boycotts of the show after one of the contestants was eliminated after being told she was "too thick."
