Heidi Klum has quickly broken the shackles of being just another supermodel. In the last decade or so, she has evolved from her tag as just a supermodel to become a woman of multiple talents, who has branched out into other roles and activities both in film and television adding to her impressive biography and repertoire.
For most models, the end of their modeling career is the end of their career, but not for Heidi Klum. The end of her modeling career was simply a stepping stone and a new beginning for the German model. After hard work, Klum is now a television personality, television producer and actress, apart from being a businesswoman, fashion designer, singer, and author.
Coming from humble beginnings in Bergisch Gladbach, a town on the outskirts of Cologne, Germany, Klum has now become a mainstay of American television. When a friend suggested that she should enroll for a modeling competition called ‘Model 92’, Heidi followed the advice and ended up winning the contest among 25,000 contestants. Winning the competition landed her the first modeling contract worth $300,000 with Thomas Zeumer, CEO of Metropolitan Models New York.
After a successful stint as the face of Victoria’s Secret as a “Victoria’s Secret Angel,” Klum went on to host the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for the years 2002, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 before quitting in 2010.
She began to appear in small cameo roles in film and television in ‘Sex and the City‘, ‘Zoolander’, ‘Malcolm in the Middle’, ‘CSI: Miami’, ‘The Devil Wears Prada‘, ‘How I Met Your Mother‘, ‘Perfect Stranger’, ‘I Get That A Lot’, ‘Desperate Housewives‘, ‘Parks And Recreation‘ and more recently in ‘Ocean’s 8’.
Heidi Klum then made the transition to reality TV and has been working with hit reality television series like ‘America’s Got Talent’ where she appeared as a judge from 2013-2018. She was also a judge and panelist for the hit reality TV series ‘Project Runway’ in which fashion designers compete to release their best clothes with restrictions on time, material and themes. The winners get to display their collections for the New York Fashion Week and the winner is chosen after it. Klum also served as an executive producer of the show.
The German supermodel also picked up an Emmy Award in 2013 for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program for ‘Project Runway’.
With her ever-increasing schedule and being involved with so many television shows it’s difficult for fans to keep track of Klum. However, here is a list of Heidi Klum’s upcoming movies and TV shows, where you can catch the former model, in the near future. Undoubtedly, the best performances are yet to come for the supermodel who has gone beyond her career.
