In case you didn’t know, it’s thongkini summer again — and supermodel Heidi Klum is proving it. In the year Since the modest swimwear line debuted in 2022, many celebrities have proudly embraced thongkinis, including Kylie Jenner, Khloe Bailey, and Vanessa Hudgens. Most recently, 50-year-old Klum appeared in one of the boldest looks on trend to date. On Saturday, May 27, she relaxed by the ocean in front of a glass balcony while vacationing with her husband, Tom Kaulitz, leaving little to her imagination as she calmly took it easy on Instagram. “Cap d’Antibes 🇫🇷❤️🌞🌹,” she said as she held a white rose and showed off her bare back and famous legs in a black thongkini bottom.
Klum is no stranger to rocking body-hugging pictures. As one of the leading swimsuit figures, she famously graced the cover of Sports Illustrated’s 1998 swimsuit issue, posing in a variety of revealing poses, including the traditional bikini and thongkini. She made history by becoming the first German model to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel (a now-retired role) in several of the brand’s swimwear campaigns, most notably in the 2001 catalog wearing a black, crochet-print swimsuit with a cut-out back. .
Aside from her affinity for thongkinis and underwear, the former “Project Park” host has also produced risque fashion seasons. Her latest appearance coincides with her appearance at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, where she wore a yellow Zuhair Murad cut-out dress that covered her sides, chest and stomach. Klum wore a sparkly micro mini dress with a thigh-high slit by Kevin Germanier to the 2023 Golden Globe Awards and previously had a look-alike moment with her daughter Leni Klum at Milan Fashion Week in 2022.
