Heidi Klum is a major star in the fashion and entertainment world. Having established herself as a top model, making great impact for such clients as Victoria's Secret and appearing on the covers of pop-culture mainstays including the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, Klum's career has taken many new directions.

Klum is the host and executive producer of the seven-time Emmy Award-nominated series "Project Runway." Also, Klum hosts Germany's "Next Top Model." She has written a lifestyle book, Body of Knowledge: 8 Rules of Model Behavior and released Rankin's Heidilicious, which features some of her favorite photos taken by talented photographer Rankin.

She has also launched Heidi Klum on AOL, a channel for women to find information on every topic.

Klum is also well known for her work with Victoria's Secret. One of her first big breaks as a model was to walk in Victoria's Secret widely-viewed runway show. Since then, she has been featured in the company's world-famous catalogs, swim books and fashion shows and worn the multi-million dollar jeweled holiday bras. She also served as host of the CBS broadcast special of the annual fashion show.

Klum's acting appearances include "Blow Dry" and "Ella Enchanted," "Spin City," and guest roles on "How I Met Your Mother," on the Network, "The Life and Death of Peter Sellers" as Ursula Andress, and "Sex and the City." She's hosted various specials for MTV, TNT and CBS and swam with sharks for an episode for Discovery Channel's popular "Shark Week."

Her charity involvements include work on behalf of such organizations as the American Red Cross (as part of its Celebrity Cabinet), Worldwide Orphans Foundation, The Children's Hospital Los Angeles and the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. Also, Klum appears in a PSA for the Entertainment Industry Foundation's Stand Up to Cancer program and served as the 2011 Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF ambassador.

On downtime at shoots, Klum cultivates her creative talents - sketching ideas for her jewelry, clothing and shoe lines, as well as crafting new ideas for her ever-developing businesses and interests.
