Have you long since forgotten your name? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that! After taking part in the casting show 'Germany's Next Top Model', a number of up-and-coming models made their breakthrough on the catwalk or through photo shoots - even though Heidi Klum (49) in the casting show did not believe in her until the end. The current GNTM season starts on February 16, 2023: Here is an overview of all important information .

Anh Phuong is in demand internationally

In the twelfth season of GNTM, Anh Phuong finished eighth. Although she had modeling experience before participating in Heidi's show, things went uphill for her, especially after her end. While her season was still airing, Anh had around 100,000 followers on Instagram. Today there are around two million users who follow her. Rightly so, after all, Anh has made a name for himself as an internationally successful model with shoots for 'Issey Miake', 'Harper's Bazaar Vietnam', 'L'Officiel Baltic' and 'Vogue Italia'.

She still made it to sixth place in season four, but then too was for Sarina Nowak End of 'Germany's Next Top Model.'

In 2022 she even returned to the GNTM set – but not as a candidate, but as a guest juror at Heidi's side.

Shari Streich runs at the Berlin Fashion Week 2023

In the 13th season of GNTM, Shari Streich flew out in the shoot-out and ended up in 14th place.

Vanessa Hegelmaier runs shows for luxury labels

Vanessa Hegelmaier has achieved what many young models dream of. In 2008 she took part in the third season of GNTM, but had to leave the show early due to a fall and a concussion. No reason for the woman from Lower Saxony not to pursue her path as a model. In 2010, Vogue ranked her among the eight best newcomer models. She has already walked in fashion shows in London, Paris and New York for labels such as Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani and Louis Vuitton. And that, although Vanessa, according to '', does not even like to be photographed – 'and I find it difficult to smile on command,' she admits. She still loves her job and doesn't let her aversion to cameras show.
