Heidi Klum, 50, and mini-me daughter Leni, 19, sparkle in glittering gowns as they pose


Heidi Klum and daughter Leni took over the red carpet at The Art of Elysium’s 25th Anniversary HEAVEN Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The supermodel, 50, and her mini-me daughter, 19, posed together in stunning couture for the one-night-only art installation at the famed Wiltern.

Dazzling in a glittering, strapless number adorned with a gold floral design, the former Project Runway host stole the spotlight, keeping her trademark sandy blonde tresses long and loose. 

Leni was just as stunning as her mother, donning a sparkling, bright red gown and a matching floral choker. 

The young beauty, who signed with CAA Fashion at age 17, styled her chestnut locks in a loose bun, complemented by a smoky eye and pink lip for a modern twist.

The gorgeous pair commanded attention on the red carpet, as they wrapped their arms around each other and flashed their megawatt smiles. 

Heidi added a set of gold bracelets to the mix, while Leni chose a simple pair of diamond earrings as her embellishment. 

The outing comes a day after Leni reunited with her famous father Seal and her three siblings at the premiere of The Book of Clarence in LA.

The model was all smiles as she laughed and joked with her father Seal, 60, as they posed for family snaps on the red carpet.

She was also joined by her siblings Lou Samuels, 13, Johan Samuels, 16, and Henry Samuels, 17, while Seal also brought along his longtime girlfriend Laura Strayer.

For the occasion, Leni looked effortlessly stylish in a leather jacket, flared pants and knee-high leather boots.

The family reunion also included Seal’s brother Jeymes Samuel, also known by his stage name The Bullitts, who wrote and directed The Book of Clarence. 

Seal adopted Leni while he was in a relationship with her mother Heidi, and the former couple welcomed Henry, Johan and Lou during their nine-year marriage, which ended in 2014.

In 2009, Seal legally became the father of Leni, who was welcomed by Heidi and her ex, Italian businessman Flavio Briatore. 

‘Leni is my natural daughter, but the three of us calmly agreed that it made the most sense that he adopt her, because a child needs to grow up in a family,’ Flavio admitted to the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera back in 2016. 

Twelve years after Heidi gave birth to Leni, Flavio told how he ‘never’ sees his daughter and said that makes it ‘hard’ to miss her. 

Former Renault F1 team manager Flavio, who has a son Nathan with his ex-wife Elisabetta Gregoraci, added: ‘Heidi, Seal and I have built an amazing relationship.

‘It’s hard to miss a baby that you never see. But I know that Leni is not an abandoned child. Leni is part of Seal’s family and Nathan is part of mine.’

He went on to explain that he used to speak to his daughter for two hours on the phone each day, but that it ‘wasn’t enough’.

Meanwhile, Leni is following in her mother’s footsteps in the modeling industry. 

After signing with the agency CAA Fashion in July 2021, she graced the runway for Dolce & Gabbana and has been featured on the covers of Vogue Germany and Glamour Germany. 

Demonstrating her entrepreneurial flair, Leni launched a new line of workout clothes called About You.
