Heidi Klum: 20 Years in the Modeling Industry

Heidi’s twenty year anniversary in the modeling industry is coming up, although she still looks twenty-years-old herself! Kelly showed a clip of Heidi on a German modeling competition, which she won in 1992 and skyrocketed her career. In the clip, Heidi’s hair is its natural color: dark brown. She said it’s been tough being a blonde all these years!

Heidi, Kelly and Jerry also looked at a few of Heidi’s early modeling photos. There was one of Heidi in her childhood bedroom, which was her very first photo shoot when she was eighteen. They also showed an adorable baby picture of Heidi with her mom– Kelly said that at first, she thought that it was Heidi and one of her babies, because Heidi and her mom look so alike.


Heidi Klum: “Project Runway” Season 10

Heidi is the host of the successful fashion competition show “Project Runway,” which is about to start its tenth season. Heidi, Kelly and Jerry watched a clip from the show of a designer showing off a rather crazy outfit. Heidi said that when people make something really “kooky,” she still tries to take it seriously and evaluate the work. She has to ask herself, is it merely for shock value? Or is there something really good in there?

For the first time on the show, this season had two contestants sneaking out in the middle of the night and leaving the show early. Heidi said that everyone was shocked, because the designers are so upset when they receive that famous ‘auf wiederzehn’ that marks their exit from the show. Kelly wanted to know if Heidi later called the contestants to give them their ‘auf wiederzehn.’ She said no, so she did it right then on the air!
