Leni Klum spoke about the lingerie photoshoot that she and her mother, model Heidi Klum, did for the Italian lingerie brand Intimissimi, saying that they were “comfortable” together.
The shoot shows Leni, 18, and Heidi, 49, posing together in the brand’s lingerie sets, dancing on set and sitting together on a stool. Both models posted about it on October 10 on Instagram, sharing photos and videos of the shoot.
In an interview with People published Thursday, Leni spoke about the shoot, highlighting how “fun” it was to work with her mother.
“My mom and I are just completely comfortable around each other and we were dancing around the whole day,” she told the publication. “That was what we had to do, and we do that anyway, so it just fit right.”
The pair faced some backlash for their participation in the campaign, the New York Post reported, with some people online calling it “disturbing.” Others, in turn, voiced their support for the shoot.
Leni made her modeling debut at age 16 along with her mother on the cover of Vogue Germany’s January/February 2021 issue. Recently, she moved to New York City to attend college and continue pursuing modeling.
Heidi previously told People that she was “very involved” in her daughter’s modeling career, telling her that she shouldn’t “do anything you don’t want to do” when it comes to work. While the pair sometimes disagree when it comes to fashion trends, Heidi told Tausi Insider in September that it was “fun” that her daughter had “her own point of view on fashion.
