Heidi Klum is a woman that I admire. She is the queen of multi-tasking and just so happens to be one of the world's most hottest supermodels. In addition, she is a TV host, businesswoman, designer, and mom! Can you imagine what her calendar looks like?
Klum is used to wearing many hats and she cultivates a style as versatile as she is. Her personal wardrobe is sexy and always on trend. Recently, she launched a clothing collaboration - Esmara with German retailer Lidl Klum brings her perspective to the masses with a line of affordably priced statement pieces that dare wearers to try something new. For example, mixing basics like tailored blazers, little black dresses, and white sneakers with flashier pieces like billowing caftans, and animal print covered blouses.
And, for the record - blazers are my soft spot which I tend pair with my favorite sneaks.
Vogue Magazine recently sat down with the superstar fashionista for a quick catch up. Check out some of her inspirational answers.
Rule 1: Fashion should make you feel empowered.
“My daily style answers an important question for me: “Which person do I want to be today?” The clothes I’m wearing lead me through my day and bring me into the mood I like to be in. It is kind of a game between the person I like to be and the person that woke up in the morning. I enjoy that very much because it shows the power and strength of fashion. I couldn’t live with an every-day-is-the-same kind of style. I am not the person from yesterday, am I? “
Rule 2: Look beyond the runway for inspiration.
“Music and art [are my sources of inspiration] Music triggers my brain and art pleases my eyes.”
Rule 3: Mix your prints.
“I think the leopard print is a new classic! Leopard is never out of style. It’s strong and wild and a little bit mysterious, like a modern woman should be. I think it’s a print that my mother would love to wear but also something I love to wear. Personally, I’d mix a floral print with my leopard jacket, and then maybe add something in a stripe. Because that’s what’s hot right now: print clashing.”
Rule 4: Put your best foot forward.
“[The best advice I ever received] is the motto a very good friend of mine, German designer Michael Michalsky gives at his shows when someone is asking for the dress-code of the evening: “Dress to impress!”
Rule 5: You can never go wrong with a great pair of jeans.
“My closet is full of jeans. And believe it or not: the jeans of my collection have become my faves! Because they are so comfortable! I love them. Besides the jeans [I love] high-heels and sneakers, white shirts, some of them men’s-style and a lot of crazy pieces I’m wearing time to time. I dress very colorfully nowadays and lots of print. My closet is too small I think!”
