The stunning mother-of-two beat her fellow Victoria’s Secret catwalk queens Adriana Lima and Tyra Banks to be crowned top of the models.com poll.

The list reflects “the girl’s visibility and impact (or potential impact) on that market in the last year and coming year”.

Models.com chose Heidi for her business prowess, saying: “Project Runway with an audience in the millions. Check. A Victoria Secret’s contract that Miss Klum has an iron grip on. Check. Her own line of shoes, jewellery and candy. Check.

“The icon they call Heidi Inc. is no mere sexy mortal this one, but a force of nature. All hail!”

Leonardo DiCaprio’s former girlfriend Gisele Bundchen is in second spot, while Brazilian model Adriana Lima came third.

America’s Next Top Model founder Tyra Banks made it into fourth position, and the top five was rounded off by Czech beauty Karolina Kurkova.

Other notable appearances include Naomi Campbell, who came twelfth, and Kate Moss, who appeared in 18th place.
