Early life

Heidi Klum was born on June 1, 1973, in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany. Her father worked for a cosmetics company while her mother was a hairdresser. Klum began modeling when she was 19. She entered a modeling contest and earned a whopping $300,000. In that moment, Klum knew what she wanted from life and went ahead to achieve just that. She decided to pursue modeling as her career and carve a niche in the world of glamor and bling.

Klum's biggest breakthrough was when she joined Victoria's Secret as a model and campaigned for the outlet's stunning lingerie lines. She worked as a VS model for 13 years before ending her contract in 2023. Her estimated earnings from modeling ventures are estimated to be more than $20 million.


After establishing a steady modeling career and accumulating roughly $90 million through diverse modeling ventures, Klum decided to try her luck running a clothing business. To her surprise, Klum's business acumen hit the nail just right, helping her establish her own lingerie line. She's also tried her hands at launching a perfume and cosmetic brand alongside her own independent clothing venture. She is said to make roughly $20 million a year from her other ventures, which include her business earnings and acting projects.


Over the next few years, Klum experimented with TV and cinema and acted in multiple TV projects, including "Sex and the City," "Spin City," "How I Met Your Mother", "Ella Enchanted," "The Life and Death of Peter Sellers," and "Devil Wears Prada."

However, her biggest TV stint was when she opted for "Project Runway," a fashion TV show where Klum was appointed as a judge. She also appeared as a regular on "America's Got Talent," a supremely popular talent hunt show that helped her accumulate $100,000 worth of income per episode.


The supermodel is known for her larger-than-life investment projects. Klum and her now ex-husband Seal had bought a mansion worth $14.2 million in Brentwood Country Estate in Los Angeles in 2010, per Hello! Magazine. After her divorce from Seal in 2014, Klum listed the property for sale for $25 million, which was ultimately sold for $24 million. She later purchased a Bel-Air mansion for $9.8 million.  In 2018, Klum bought a swanky penthouse worth $5.1 million in New York City.


The supermodel-turned-businesswoman has a fan base of 11.3 million on Instagram and 4.7 million on X. This insane following certainly helps Klum accumulate a few million through her social media posts.
