She is normally very recognizable as she models for major fashion houses in the US and Europe.
But new images of this young star were shared on Thursday where she looks nothing like herself.
Hint: her hair isn’t normally red and is usually much longer.
She comes from quite a distant background.
Her mother is a supermodel from Europe who rose to fame posing in lingerie for Victoria’s Secret and looking seductive for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Later, her mother took advantage of that fame in concerts as a television presenter.
His biological father is very wealthy and much older (73), but he’s not in the public eye as often.
And the father who adopted her is a Grammy-winning singer who had big hits in the 1990s and dated model Tyra Banks and Tamara Beckwith. He still performs at sold-out shows today.
This teenager also has a new stepfather who is a popular musician in Europe.
Who is she?
She is normally very recognizable as she models for major fashion houses in the US and Europe. But new images of this young star were shared on Thursday where she looks nothing like herself.
Hints: Her mother is a supermodel, her biological father is very rich and much older, her adoptive father is a Grammy-winning singer, and her stepfather is a musician.
This is Leni Klum, 19 years old.
And the Los Angeles resident was spotted in edgy new Dior ads.
The young star has already worked for several big brands such as Michael Kors and is considered one of the best new ‘nepo babies’.
Her mother is 50-year-old Heidi Klum, who built a career as a fashion model. She landed on the covers of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Marie Claire.
Then she started working as a TV presenter. She’s been on Project Runway, Making The Cut, and now America’s Got Talent.
Leni’s biological father is Flavia Briatore, 73, an Italian businessman.
He began his career as a restaurant manager and insurance salesman in Italy.
Briatore was convicted in Italy on various fraud charges in the 1980s and received two prison sentences, though the sentences were later extinguished with an amnesty.

Leni’s adoptive father is 60-year-old Seal.
The artist adopted Leni when he was married to Heidi. Heidi and Seal were married from 2005 to 2014.
The singer, whose full name is Seal Henry Olusegun Olumide Adeola Samuel, is an English singer-songwriter and record producer.
He has sold more than 20 million records worldwide. These include the hit songs Crazy and Killer, the latter of which went to number one in the UK, and his most celebrated song, Kiss from a Rose, which was released in 1994.
Seal has three children with Heidi: Johan, Henry, and Lou.
Heidi is now married to Tom Kaulitz, 33, a Tokio Hotel singer.
Leni has received a lot of media attention in the past year for her red carpet appearances and modeling.
And it made headlines in June for a rare photo. The budding model shared an image in which she did not have a smudge of makeup on. The Dior favorite wore her damp hair pulled back with a pink, purple and white headband with a bow at the top so fans could get a good look at her face.
The teen looked gorgeous in her cool look as she added a pale gray robe.
He did not comment on the InstaStories post.

All done up with mommy: Here’s the teen model with her cover girl mom Heidi
Budding supermodel: Leni made her modeling debut with her mother Heidi on the cover of Vogue Germany in 2021
Leni has had a solid career so far.
Her modeling career began two years ago when she appeared on the cover of Vogue Germany.
And Heidi was delighted.
‘I am so proud of you. And not because you have chosen this path. I know that no matter which path you take, it will be yours,” she wrote in German on social media.
You always know exactly what you want and what you don’t want. You are not a mini-me. And I’m glad for you that now you can show who YOU are.’
She has gone to work with Versace.
Mother-daughter: Leni with her mom in lingerie ads; were criticized for this work
But there have been some ups and downs.
Heidi was forced to disable her Instagram comments after sharing a post of herself posing in lingerie next to Leni.
The world-famous supermodel took to her social media platform to upload images from her latest Intimissimi campaign.
But Heidi faced a wave of backlash for the photo shoot that featured her and her daughter Leni showing off their figures in lacy lingerie.
The runway queen has since disabled comments after some fans called the photoshoot inappropriate.
Promoting her new Intimissimi campaign, Heidi took to Instagram to share a variety of snaps from the shoot and urged people to tag them if they saw their billboards.
Clean: in June he shared an image where he did not have a stain of makeup
She wrote: ‘Yiiiipppppiiiiiii our new campaign @intimissimiofficial is here. You can discover #theartofitalianlingerie online and in all Intimissimi stores.
In the photos, German-American model Heidi flaunted her enviable physique in a blue lingerie set decorated with intricate white lace.
Leni stood next to Heidi, wearing a white underwear set with a satin chemise, as she posed holding hands with her mother.
While Heidi had disabled comments on her Instagram, Leni kept hers open, and some fans criticized the campaign.
One wrote: ‘First thing I think of when I want to pose in my underwear: ‘my mom should be here!’ and another replies: ‘I know, kind of gross.’
Another follower wrote: ‘I wouldn’t be proud to show my daughter like this. I would feel ashamed and sad.
However, other supporters raved about the campaign calling Heidi and Leni ‘beautiful’ and that they were a ‘beautiful family’.
In June, Heidi and Leni posed with Heidi’s mom, Erna. All the mom-of-four had in her caption was three red hearts.
Three beauties: Klum made the rare move of posing with some members of her family this weekend There were three generations in the new snapshot that the German supermodel and television uploaded to Instagram
In the new family portrait, Heidi wore a pale pink top with very blonde hair and her face made up in light shades of frosted pink.
Her daughter was in the middle as she wore her honey blonde hair over her white lined shirt. She wore makeup in nude tones that maximized her natural beauty.
Mama Erna wore her white blonde hair to shoulder length while adding a pretty pink floral print top with a necklace of graduated pearls.
They posed in front of a black and white photo of a woman with bare legs and strappy heels.
The image was likely of Klum, who has been modeling for 35 years.
The last time the three were seen together in a photo was in 2020.
In the image, the three look-alike Klums smiled for the camera as Heidi, standing in the middle, captured the shot.
Leni captioned the post in German, her grandmother’s native language, and wrote: “I love you grandma and wish you a happy birthday.”
Heidi also shared an Instagram post to mark her mom’s birthday with some rare shots from the ’70s and ’80s.
The supermodel shared a series of old photos of her and her mother from their childhood, with the words: ‘Happy birthday MAMA ❤️ IL❤️VE YOU’
