Since then, Klum's resume has expanded to include several guest spots in television and film, including "Sex and the City" and Ella Enchanted. But she is perhaps best known as host of Bravo's hit reality series "Project Runway," which helped cement her reputation as a fashion maven and runway icon who keeps it real.
As part of the "Runway" creative team, Klum has earned multiple Emmy nominations, including one for her role as host in 2008.
Under intense pressure and constant scrutiny, aspiring fashion designers with a diverse array of backgrounds and skills compete in challenges that test their ingenuity, reveal their personal aesthetics and determine who's in -- and who's out. Hosted by supermodel Heidi Klum, the hit reality series also features the beloved Tim Gunn, a fashion expert and mentor who urges the contestants to "make it work."
