Pin-up Darlings from Then and Now-Veruschka and Heidi Klum

by - 4:53 PM

Veruschka von Lehndorff is a German model and actress, who surprisingly still makes appearances on catwalks at age 71. She was the daughter of an officer in the German resistance and her mother was a countess. Her father was part of an assassination plan against Adolf Hitler when she was only 5 years-old and was executed. She was discovered as a model while she was studying art in Florence, and then moved to Paris to pursue her modeling career. She was very popular until 1975 when she left the American fashion Industry after a disagreement with then Vogue editor, Grace Mirabella.
Heidi Klum is also a German fashion model that wears many different hats that include: television host, designer, television producer, and businesswoman. Klum was entered into a modeling contest in Germany during high school, and ended up winning the grand prize of a $300,000 modeling contract in NYC. From there she has made covers of Sports Illustrated, Vogue, and Marie Claire. She was also the first German model to ever become a Victoria's Secret model in 1997. 
Both German native bombshells have their natural beauty in common, but also many other great qualities. They both have been known to march to the beat of their own drum and stand up for what they believe. This we're sure is easier said than done when you're in a new country and have million dollar contracts on the line. Each of them have a very eclectic personal style, and are very respected in the fashion world. Heidi Klum has hosted the show 'Project Runway' for the last 9 years and her opinion is respected by many big names in the industry. 

We have chosen one of our newest dresses as a piece that would look stunning on both of these beauties! They both have phenomenal bodies, and we feel that the shape of the Pippa dress would only accentuate their assets.
