Happy birthday, Heidi Klum! The German-born supermodel-turned-businesswoman turns 41 today. While Klum is  known for her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covers and her 13-year-run as the first German Victoria’s Secret Angel, modeling is far from her only talent. The mother of four is a designer (have you seen her colorful collection for New Balance?), host of Project Runway, and a judge on America’s Got Talent. Klum has definitely come a long way since her days as a curious 9-year-old experimenting with makeup, as seen on the mogul’s Instagram. In fact, every week, Klum posts throwback photos from her early days as a model, giving us a glimpse into her life, pre-Angel wings and intricate Halloween costumes.
