Heidi Klum announces that she is officially retiring from lingerie modeling. 

The former Victoria's Secret angel tells Access Hollywood that she has no plans to walk the runway wearing only lingerie. 

'I wouldn't model with my underwear down the runway anymore,' said Klum, adding, 'I think that would feel a little uncomfortable.'

The move was made after contemplating on her career path now that she's 40 years old. Yet, Klum won't hang up her bras and panties for good just yet.

'I still do photoshoots for [magazine] covers and different things or advertising stuff,' explains Klum.

Meanwhile, Klum also talks about her body and her fear of undergoing any surgical procedure to improve it, citing Botox in particular. 

'Botox or bangs,' stated Klum. 'I go for bangs.'

'I wouldn't say that I love [my crow's feet], but that's just the way it happens, right? We get wrinkles from smiling,' explained the former VSFS model.

'I've never had any [cosmetic procedures]. I've been too scared, to be honest with you. I'm scared that all of a sudden you're changing too much, your face starts changing, I don't know. I would have a hard time looking in the mirror and seeing something that I'm not used to seeing. I'd be afraid.'

Klum is currently busy with her hosting stints in "Project Runway" and "Germany's Next Top Model." She also dabbles into designing kids' clothing through her line Babies R Us. On top of that, she is also a mother to four children with Seal, whom she divorced last year. 

Heidi Klum started out with her career after winning a modeling contest back in Germany, after which she was offered a contract by Metropolitan Models. She had a breakthrough in her career after appearing on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and for her appearances for Victoria's Secret. Since then she has done numerous stints in modeling, acting and hosting.
