Of course, her personal life was the source of endless coverage thanks to a high-profile romance with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore and her seven-year marriage to R&B singer, Seal, which ended in divorce in 2012. With her down-to-earth appeal, Klum was the face and name behind designer clothes, fragrances, swimsuits and jewelry, and was an amorous presence in the harsh and often unforgiving world of fashion.
