Leni looked incredible as she sported a light black crop top and modelled a denim jacket over her shoulders.

The daughter of the fashion industry icon also wore a matching set of trousers while adding inches to her height with black heels.

Her lengthy blonde locks cascaded over her shoulders in beachy waves and she sported a full face of glamorous makeup.

She later slipped her toned physique into a long-sleeved white crop top, which she layered beneath a pair of denim dungarees.

Having unbuttoned the number at her right shoulder, the garment hung loose to create a laid-back appearance.

The America’s Got Talent judge, 48, initially began a relationship with her daughter’s father Flavio Briatore, 71, in 1998.

Prior to becoming involved with the businessman, she was married to her first husband, Ric Pipino, 53, from 1997 until 2002.

She then began a relationship with Flavio and announced that she was pregnant with the couple’s child in December of 2003.

However, the two split up not long after the news was made available to the public, and Heidi went on to begin a relationship with her third husband, Seal, 58, who served as Leni’s adoptive father.

Last December, the mother-daughter duo made a joint appearance on the cover of Vogue Germany, where the fashion industry icon was seen kissing her child’s cheek. 

The reality television personality also wrote a lengthy message that was directed at Leni in the post’s caption, and lovingly told her that she was ‘a really great person with your heart in the right place.’ 

Heidi went on to note that she wanted her daughter to remember the lessons that she had taught her throughout her lifetime.

‘I hope that no matter where you are, you always carry what I have given you over the past 16 years. For the big decisions in life, but also for the very little ones,’ she noted. 

The model then gave her daughter another suggestion that she hoped would be greatly valued as she began her modeling career.

She wrote: ‘And even if you often don’t want to hear your mom’s clever advice, here’s another one: never do something you don’t want to do and always listen to your gut instinct.’ 

Heidi also pointed out that Leni’s high-profile debut was likely a good omen and that her daughter had a bright future ahead of her.

‘I am sure that an exciting time is waiting for you. Vogue is the best way to start the career you dream of,’ she expressed.

The model concluded the message by noting that she would always support her daughter in all of her ventures and that she was happy to see her mature into an adult. 

Klum wrote: ‘And even if it is a little difficult for me to let go of you into this world, I will always do everything so that you are happy and that your dreams come true. I am proud to be your mom!’

Mom knows best: Heidi also wrote a lengthy message where she expressed that she hoped her daughter would remember the advice that she had 'given...over the past 16 years'
