She’s pushing 40 and is a mother of four – but Heidi Klum isn’t afraid to bare it all.

The supermodel, 38, poses nude in Allure’s May issue, showing off her toned physique and discussing why she’s never gone under the knife.

“I’m proud to be able to say, in this day and age, I haven’t done anything,” Klum tells the magazine. “Everyone has a view of what’s not pretty and [plastic surgery] just doesn’t look pretty to me.”

The Project Runway host filed for divorce from Seal, her husband of seven years, on April 6, and she tells the magazine about adjusting to her post-split life.

“I had dreams of how I wanted things to be and planned for things and, as we all know today, they don’t always turn out as you dreamt them in your head,” she says.

“Sometimes life throws you a curveball,” Klum continues, “and then you just figure it out and deal with it, but my dream always was that – to have the perfect family and have lots of children and a beautiful garden and trampolines and swings and things.”

The leggy model also dished about her early career struggles: “I never did fashion shows – not in Paris or Berlin or even in New York City. I tried but no one would book me.”

She recalls being rejected in her 20s by fellow Project Runway judge Michael Kors, who saw her in his clothes when she was 20 and said, “Thanks, but no thanks.”
