Rehabilitated! Heidi and her beautiful daughter posed in beautiful lingerie after an unsuccessful photo shoot
Heidi Klum has teamed up with her teenage daughter as the pair posed up a storm for a new lingerie campaign, after their previous shoot was branded “creepy”.
The 49-year-old model and her lookalike offspring Leni Klum, 18, wore matching red lingerie as they took part in a photoshoot for a new Intimissimi campaign.
In the pictures, Heidi showed off her toned figure while wearing semi-sheer lace lingerie, which featured a dainty silver chain detail. Heidi leant against Leni who wore a lace-topped satin pyjama set from the brand.
Both women opted for a natural makeup look and posed with their eyes closed.
Leni was forced to defend their previous Intimissimi campaign after some people criticised it for being “weird”.
Some social media users branded their original shoot as “icky”, while one Twitter user took it a step further, saying: “Sexualizing your daughter the moment they turn legal is weird.”
Speaking on his SiriusXM show, Howard Stern said: “I looked at it and I thought, ‘This is so f**king’ out of line. It is so inappropriate.’ But you can’t stop looking at it.”
Ulrika Johnson even got involved in the criticism and said she found the shoot “uncomfortable”.
Heidi Klum isn’t the first and she won’t be the last as she makes many feel slightly uneasy by posing in undies with her equally scantily clad 18-year-old Leni,” Ulrika penned in her column with The Sun.
“Heidi joins a string of model and celebrity mums who have made the strategic decision to exhibit their girls.
“Cindy Crawford did it with Kaia; the delectable Kate Moss has posed with her model daughter, Lila; Yolanda Hadid loves showing off Gigi and Bella and even Gwynnie has been known to flaunt her beloved Apple,” she added.
Despite the backlash, Leni – who recently moved to New York City from California for college – insists she is happy with how the shoot went and chooses to ignore the negative reactions.
She also heaped the praise on her mum, saying she’s her “inspiration” and confessing the pair had fun posing for the camera together.
“I honestly didn’t look at a lot of the reactions. I am overall happy with the campaign and I had an amazing day with my mom,” the teen told PageSix.
Leni went on to praise the help her mum gives her in life, saying: “Just the advice she gives me, the way she works, everything about her, I can go on and on. I love shooting with her.”
