Heidi Klum’s boyfriend, art dealer Vito Schnabel, regularly shares images of contemporary art on his gallery’s Instagram account, but a recent post deserves special attention. This week, he posted a painting by Richard Prince of a nude woman with her face obscured, and Klum commented on it, “I recognize those boobies.”
With that comment, Klum seems to be saying she’s the woman depicted in the artwork. That makes total sense, because according to Page Six, Schnabel has the painting—which is more than seven feet tall—in his home.
Page Six also revealed that Klum has been working on a book of nude photos with British photographer Rankin. (They teamed up for her lingerie line, too.) The book, called Heidi Klum by Rankin, has been in progress for several years, and is expected out this summer. An unnamed source said, “She’s never released nude photos like this, ever.”
It’s not surprising that the 43-year-old supermodel would pose nude for a whole book’s worth of photos. She’s made it clear that she’s very comfortable in her own skin. A few weeks back, she talked to the Daily Mail about her swimsuit line and said, “I am a top optional kind of girl… when I am in a secluded environment, of course! Otherwise I love wearing triangle bikinis.”
While the prospect of nude photos of Klum is exciting, you can see her clothed body in motion in these Boomerang clips. In all three, she demonstrates her impressive hair-tossing skills:
