On Saturday, the UNICEF Ball in Capri, Italy, hosted many celebrities, including model Leni Klum, daughter of famous supermodel Heidi Klum. A sense of style seems to run in the family, as Leni showed up wearing an absolutely stunning spaghetti strap dress with a sexy plunging neckline that showed off her cleavage.
The piece was made from an overlay of floral lace patterns with nude briefs underneath. The dress ended in black fringe around her ankles and she teamed the dress with black strappy peep toe sandals. She left her long brown hair down and wore simple makeup that highlighted her natural beauty.
Leni was born to her famous mother in 2004 with her then partner Flavio Briatore. She was adopted by her stepfather, musician Seal, in 2005.
The UNICEF event aimed to raise money for children in Ukraine and featured a performance by Jennifer Lopez. The 18-year-old debuted in the January/February 2021 issue of Vogue Germany with her mother. She has previously worked with brands like Superga, Michael Kors and Dolce & Gabbana, taking part in the latter’s show in Sicily last month.
She also participated in the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda 2021 fashion show in Saint Mark’s Square in Venice.
“Honestly, I wasn’t that nervous. I kind of just winged it,” Klum said SHE at the time, mentioning the Swarovski-encrusted crown she wore on her walk. “I was afraid it would fall off, so they ended up sewing it onto my hair.”
Leni says the designers handled all the adjustments by hand. She also said she wanted to be a model since she was 12, but added, “My mom wouldn’t let me.”
