not too long ago partnered up with Bendon to put her name on a new collection of sleepwear and intimates, and the German ubermodel confirmed her fashion designer prowess when made a promotional job stop Down Under on Monday (January 26th).
The forty-one year-old beauty, who was chosen to replace fellow supermodel Elle Macpherson
after the Australian stunner enjoyed a twenty-five year partnership with Bendon as head designer for her "The Body" range, kicked off the week with all eyes on her as she made her presence known at the presentation of her brand new Heidi Klum Intimates collection held at the Icebergs Dining Room restaurant in Sydney's popular Bondi Beach.
Rocking a subtle tan and wearing her sun-kissed blonde locks in loose tousled beach waves, Klum looked almost like a modern day Greek goddess in an billowing white one-shoulder number that had an also asymmetrical skirt and was fastened at the waist with a large contrasting black which that had frilled trim, completing the look with a pair of intricate snake-skin pointy-tipped pumps and two large rings on her right hand.
"I wanted to launch in Australia first because this is where it all began," said the statuesque mother-of-four, who also created a menswear offering called HK Man. "Elle had been doing the line for twenty-five years and I was super excited that I was asked to take over the reins and march along with it and I'm excited to do that. Twenty-five years is a huge success story."
Regarding the transition from one world-class supermodel to the other, Bendon's chief executive officer Justin Davis-Rice said; “Elle has been a great partner to Bendon, however it’s time to take the brand to even greater heights, and Heidi is perfectly positioned to do just that."
Klum was joined at the launch event by a multitude of local Aussie celebrities, including Sports Illustrated Swimsuit
model Jessica Gomes
. The mannequin-turned-designer's predecessor Macpherson will reportedly continue her own line with a new parter.
