Heidi Klum’s daughter Leni Klum lands her first solo magazine cover

Heidi Klum “couldn’t be more proud” of her cover girl.

Leni Klum16, followed in the fashionable footsteps of her supermodel mother by landing her first solo magazine cover on Glamor Germany, 20 years after Klum graced the publication’s first issue in 2001.

“Thank you to everyone who made my first solo cover so special,” Leni wrote on instagram. “It’s an honor to share this with my mum @heidiklum who was Glamor Germany’s very first cover model.”

The cover shows Leni posing in a floral print dress with fanciful sleeves. And his mom was there every step of the way. Klum, 47 years old, shared a behind the scenes video of herself and Leni playfully interacting during the photoshoot.

“@leniklum its so much fun being your plus one on set,” Klum captioned the video.

Although Leni said she received modeling offers from the age of 12, the teenager made her official debut at 16.

His mother called him “a good age” to pursue modeling: “If you’re allowed to drive a car, you can also have an official Instagram account and show your face. And being allowed to start with a Vogue cover is an insane privilege.

The teenager made her magazine debut posing for the January/February 2021 issue of Vogue Germany alongside his mother. The cover photo sees Klum planting a kiss on his teenage daughter’s cheek. In another photo, the mother lays her head on her daughter’s shoulder.

In January, Leni hit the virtual runway for Berlin Fashion Week, styled by Christiane Arp, editor-in-chief of Vogue Germany.
