9781400050284: Heidi Klum's Body of Knowledge: 8 Rules of Model Behavior (to Help You Take Off on the Runway of Life)

Heidi Klum is one of the most famous supermodels in the world, but it took a lot more than above-average looks to get there. Growing up in a small town in Germany certainly didn’t prepare her for superstardom. After winning a national modeling contest she had entered on a lark, Heidi spent the next two years trying to catch a break in a business dominated by skinny waifs and big egos. Ignoring the skeptics and naysayers, at nineteen, she hopped a plane to the United States, where she tirelessly (and always optimistically) posed, strutted, networked, and laughed her way to the top.
Heidi learned a lot on the road to becoming a cultural icon—and fortunately she took notes along the way. In this funny, dishy, and highly practical book, she shares the secrets behind her success and shows how anyone can achieve their goals in work, love, and life:

· Pursue success long after any sane person would have given up
· Persuade others you have the chops to do whatever it is you’re going for
· Make people see you as you want to be seen
· Find your own unique style
· Create a strong, healthy body
· Tap into your seductive side
· Broaden your horizons by traveling the world
· Have a blast while it lasts

This informative romp is full of gorgeous photos from the top professional photographers in the fashion industry, personal pictures from Heidi’s own scrapbooks, behind-the-scenes stories about the modeling world, and helpful hints for achieving success. With her refreshing candor and effervescent style, Heidi offers dead-on advice that will resonate with anyone who has ever wanted more out of life.

About the Author:

HEIDI KLUM is an internationally recognized model who has been featured in many top fashion magazines and prestigious campaigns, including a long-running association with Victoria’s Secret. Her career has also branched out to encompass numerous creative and business ventures, including fine jewelry, perfume, shoe, swimwear, and clothing lines. Heidi has also acted in and hosted many film and television projects. She lives in New York City. You can visit Heidi at www.heidiklum.com.

From Publishers Weekly:

For this self-help book covering everything from health to work to sex, the supermodel best known as the face of Victoria’s Secret attempts to advise readers about their lives by explaining how she handled tricky situations in her own life. But Klum’s experiences, which range from watching the U.S. Open with Donald Trump to chatting awkwardly with Prince backstage at the Tonight Show, will be difficult for the average person to relate to. The basis for Klum’s "rules," such as "You Have to Want It, Baby (Desire)," "Be a Jet-Setter (Travel)" and "Make a Fashion Statement (Statement)," are certainly admirable. But Klum doesn’t explicate them nearly as much as she writes about her own life, making this book feel more like an authorized biography. Several celebrities Klum counts as friends provide interesting sidebars: Harvey Weinstein on how to break into the entertainment business, Michael J. Fox on how to find humor in any situation, etc. Klum’s fans will want the book for its photos alone, which include the infamous snapshot of her biting Evander Holyfield’s ear and a 43-page portfolio of her personal favorites. There are more practical self-help books on the shelves, but none have such beautiful photos and as many pages of fodder for celebrity enthusiasts.
