Heidi Klum is officially on holiday.
The “Project Runway” host isn’t running around doing last-minute shopping or standing with her four children in an endless line so they can talk to Santa Claus. Instead, the 39-year-old beauty is soaking up the sun during a tropical getaway, and she shared a photo of herself – sunbathing topless, of course! –with her 1.2 million Twitter followers.
"Island speed,” she wrote along with the picture, which shows Klum on a lounge chair with no one else in sight. Behind her is a perfect backdrop – blue skies, inviting water, and smooth sand.
This caps the end of a busy year for the German model, who shocked Hollywood in January when she and Seal announced the end of their seven-year marriage. (omg! readers were surprised by the news as well – just check out our 2012 Year-End Readers’ Poll.) Klum has since started dating her bodyguard, Martin Kristen, and last weekend they were seen enjoying a day of fun with her children at Disneyland in Anaheim.
“He’s been helping me for four years now,” Klum said about Kristen to German magazine Bunte last month. “He takes wonderful care of the kids. He plays with them, he protects them. I trust him.”
Her high-profile divorce isn’t the only big change in Klum’s life. Yesterday it was announced that Michael Kors, her longtime “Project Runway” sidekick, will be replaced by Zac Posen for Season 11 of the show, which returns to TV on January 24. Scheduling issues are reportedly keeping Kors – and his funny quips! – from the show this season, but he will return for the season finale. Another shake-up this season – the designer contestants will also be competing as teams instead of individuals.
We see why Klum is making time for R&R now: She has a busy year ahead!
