Heidi Klum is on the cover of Ocean Drive magazine’s 20th anniversary issue and dishes about posing nude, what her career has taught her and what she has learned from hosting Project Runway.
The mom of four has graced the magazine’s cover six times – the most of any cover model in the magazine’s 20-year history!
On posing nude
“When you have a good body, photographers will often be like “Yeah, let’s take this off, and why don’t we lose this too,” and you can quickly end up not wearing much clothing. You have to be careful and strong at saying no, especially when you’re younger and on your own. Not everyone is cool and has your best interest [at heart].”
On what her career has taught her
“How to get along with so many different characters, for sure. I’ve learned to not be scared. When you’re young and pretty, you can’t be vulnerable. Not that I’d hurt anyone to get to the top, but you have to bring your hustle and watch your back. But it’s also important to find time for your time—you can’t lose sight of that.”

On what she has learned from Project Runway
“I really saw how much work goes into it [fashion]—from the amount of passion to the attention to detail, all the way down to the color of the buttons on a shirt. And of course I’ve loved working with Michael Kors. It never gets old.”
On her legs being insured for $2 million
“Ha! Yes, [Braun] wanted to do that. In London, I had to go to an insurance firm, and this person just checked out my legs. On one knee, I have a scar from when I fell and had to get stitches, so they made that leg less expensive than the other. But I went with it. And obviously, it’s all very flattering.”
