Germany's next top model: Heidi Klum once again relies on star photographer Rankin

In the new season "Germany's next top model", Heidi Klum is apparently relying on the tried and tested: Star photographer Rankin is at work.

Heidi Klum (47) is in the middle of filming the 16th season of "Germany's Next Top Model". However, she does not have to contest this alone. While she brought her daughter Leni (16) with her to the first day of shooting in Berlin at the beginning of the week, fashion designer Manfred Thierry Mugler (71) was last introduced as a guest judge. But of course he should not be missing in the "GNTM" cosmos: Star photographer Rankin (54).

The Briton has been part of the ProSieben casting show since 2009. Klum relies on his skills again and again. If Rankin is hired, the young models can usually expect spectacular photo shoots. This time, however, it seems to be the 47-year-old herself who puts the star photographer in the limelight. On Instagram, Klum published several impressions of the set in her stories. While she dances in a red sequin dress in front of a green screen, he examines the result on the screen.

Cooperation despite social distancing

Why does it have to be recordings for "Germany's Next Top Model"? Another clip shows Klum and Rankin separated by a white wall. Klum's comment on this: "Social distancing cannot tear us apart (…) I love you." The snapshots in a row were complemented by the hashtag "GNTM". The broadcast of the new season is planned for spring 2021.
