Heidi Klum is a self-proclaimed nudist and we're all about it

Heidi Klum has no problem with nudity. 

Heidi Klum is just living her life. NUDE.

In a new interview with Ocean Drive Magazine, the former SI Swimsuit cover model and current TV personality opened up about going to nude beaches as a child and the influence it's had on her as an adult. 

"I grew up going to nude beaches with my parents, so I’m a nudist," she told the magazine. "I have no problems with nudity at all. I’m very free. When I go to the beach, it’s in a very remote place where there are not a lot of people, and I like to go topless."

And while the supermodel and mother of four loves a classic sense of style, she doesn't believe that lingerie can be too sexy.

"Everyone should do what they want to do, [even if it’s] thigh-high stockings and a garter belt that shows a little bit when you sit at the dinner table," she continued. "I don’t think that’s vulgar. I feel comfortable and don’t care if someone sees my nipples necessarily—it’s okay to see the nipple!"

The German-born beauty has come a long way since she graced our cover in nothing but body paint. She was named one of Forbes' World's Top-Earning Models with $20 million in earnings in 2011, and is one of the highest-paid TV hosts thanks to her long-standing roles on shows like Project Runway and America's Got Talent
