Only good things can happen when you put Heidi Klum and Sports Illustrated together. But in the 2014 Swimsuit Issue, Heidi’s not sporting a new bikini or body paint, and is instead, rocking it out with Maserati.
Sorry boys. No skin here.
The 7-page pictorial piece entitled “Beyond the Swimsuit” strikes against the ‘modeling stereotype’, which typically portrays scantily clad women in string bikinis so small you could already floss with them. Not that we’re complaining. So what they’re trying to show is that these women can be more than just a pretty face on paper, and become successful, powerful, and driven – characteristics best personified by Heidi herself.
In case you didn’t know, Heidi Klum is not only one of the world’s top-earning models, but is also a fashion and makeup designer, painter, and host, judge, and executive producer of the reality show Project Runway.
Shot by Italian photographer, Francesco Carrozzini, check out these spreads of a dolled-up Heidi as the Hollywood star with the glamorous Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition, the business woman with the Ghibli S Q4, and the thrill-seeker with the GranTurismo MC Trofeo Race Car.
