Heidi Klum has given fans an insight into how she made it as one of the world’s most successful supermodels.

The model - who turns 39 next month - posted a video on Facebook which shows her as a sweet 18-year-old in her native Germany, and RadarOnline.com has photos of the teenage wannabee.

Her legions of fans will be shocked to see the famous blonde with dark brunette tresses, but as she elegantly poses in a purple bathing suit… it’s easy to see the graceful catwalk model that would be.

She can also be seen lying on an inflatable bed and eventually falling into the water.

Heidi, who is facing her first birthday since the breakdown of her marriage to British singer Seal, submitted the video to a television modeling competition in the early ‘90s.

She was successful, of course, out of 25,000 contestants, she was voted the winner and offered a modeling contract worth $300,000 by Thomas Zeumer, CEO of Metropolitan Models New York.

Klum reminisced about her time on Model 92 with her Facebook fans.

Klum wrote along with the post: "Since so many of you have been responding to my early modeling photos, I wanted to show you how it all began... I won a televised modeling contest in Germany when I was 18 years old. Enjoy!"

At one juncture in the show-reel, her future husband’s track Crazy can be heard playing as she walks down a catwalk.

They didn’t meet until 2004, so it seems like a strange omen… though perhaps now an ominous one.
