Heidi Klum at the The Paperboy premiere during the 65th Cannes Film Festival 2012 in France in an exquisite dress wrought from fine silvery strands - May 24, 20112

Heidi Klum is turning 45 this June 1!

The supermodel and entrepreneur is always on top of trends, just a glance over her illustrious career makes that clear. The most shining example right now is her preference for metallics — silver in particular, but also gold and even rose gold. In honor of her milestone birthday, here’s a collection of Heidi’s best-ever metallic looks — because as far as we’re concerned, she’s sterling.

Particular standouts include the Marchesa mermaid gown she took to the 65th Cannes Film Festival and her more recent, mirrored Alex Perry dress, which featured structured shoulders, making it a trendy two-for-one. — jas
