As one of the biggest supermodels in the world and the host for fashion TV shows including Project Runway and Making the Cut, Heidi Klum has all the ingredients of a true style icon. From her eclectic sense of style to her mile-long legs, Klum is always one to look out for on the red carpet. After all, if Klum is coming, you know you’re in for a treat.
Talking to SheKnows earlier this year, the model discussed how her style is as versatile as her personality. “I have so many different moods all the time,” she said. “Sometimes I want to be sassy, then I want to be super sexy, then I want to be Business Barbie, then I love to be bohemian… so it’s all very eclectic.”
Tim Gunn, Klum’s longtime friend and TV collaborator, quipped, “I think you’re your own icon.” We couldn’t agree more, Tim!
In celebration of Klum’s impeccable style, let’s look back at her best looks over the years, from recent red carpet knockouts to her maternity glam many years ago. (We won’t be including Klum’s jaw-dropping Halloween makeovers in the list, but if you’re interested check out her Halloween looks here!)
