1998: HEIDI KLUM

Klum was already on the map by 1998, having become a Victoria's Secret Angel the year before, but the career that followed has been fast and furious, thanks in part to her reality hit Project Runway and high-profile marriage to (and split from) Seal. These days, the 39-year-old mom-of-four is busy with namesake fragrances, a clothing line for Amazon.com, a jewelry collection and a gig as host of Germany's Next Top Model.
