Heidi Klum has definitely proven to be more than just a pretty face.

Sure, the German-born beauty could have simply gotten by on her looks after launching her modeling career at the age of 18, becoming a Victoria's Secret Angel a few years later and then landing on the cover of 1998's Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. But Klum clearly wasn't content on simply striking a pose and appearing in such fashion magazines as Elle, Vogue and Marie Claire.

The hottie dubbed "The Body" also tried her hand at acting, making appearances on TV series like Spin City, Sex and the CityHow I Met Your Mother and Parks & Recreation. She also showed up on the big screen with roles in the movies Blow Dry, Ella Enchanted and The Life and Death of Peter Sellers, in which she was cast as Ursula Andress.

In 2004, Klum became the host and one of the executive producers for the competitive reality TV series Project Runway. The show, where up and coming fashion designers competed to have their lines shown at fashion week, was an immediate success. While continuing to work on the popular program, Klum also decided to host the reality show Germany's Next Top Model in her native country as well as take on judging duties during the 2013 season of NBC's America's Got Talent.

Klum has also ventured into the world of designing, having created a line of shoes for Birkenstock, jewelry for Mouawad and a clothing line for Jordache Jeans.

With such a strong work ethic, it's no surprise that in May 2011, Klum placed second on Forbes' list of the world's top-earning models after raking in an estimated $20 million that year.

On the personal side of things, Klum announced in 2003 that she and then-boyfriend Flavio Briatore were expecting their first child together. However, the two soon split up and Klum began dating Seal while still pregnant. On May 4, 2004, she gave birth to daughter Leni, with the British singer by her side. The couple married on May 10, 2005 and had three additional children together—Henry, Johan and Lou—before Klum filed for divorce in April 2012. Most recently, she had been dating her former bodyguard Martin Kristen, but the two called things off in early 2014.
