Leni Klum poses in undies next to supermodel mum Heidi Klum for Intimissimi

Heidi Klum and her lookalike daughter Leni have stunned in matching sheer outfits at an event for Italian lingerie brand Intimissimi in Berlin.

The mother-daughter supermodel duo – who are ambassadors for the label and have somewhat controversially appeared in a number of campaigns for it together – attended the dinner at the German capital’s Bode museum on the weekend.

Heidi donned a pink lace mini dress with see-through panelling, while Leni showed off her matching black underwear in a mesh maxidress.

“Thank you @intimissimiofficial for the most magical night in Berlin CELEBRATING our new CAMPAIGN,” Heidi wrote on Instagram after the event.

“And thank you to everyone coming out and spending the evening with us.”

Leni, 19, is the eldest daughter of Heidi and Italian businessman Flavio Briatore, and was also adopted by Seal in 2009. The Kiss From a Rose singer, 60, was married to the Victoria’s Secret model from 2005 to 2014.

While she’s following in her mother’s footsteps, Leni last year told People that her parents’ fame is “just a fact” – one she insisted has not impacted her work ethic.

“I did get help starting off, and I know that people would dream to start off with what I had,” she said of the “nepo baby” debate.

“I’m so grateful that I’ve been able to take what was gifted to me by my mum. But I am doing the work and putting in the time. Now I’m working on my own, travelling alone, going to school. My mum and I just have the same love for the same thing.”

The teen and her mother – who have posed together on a number of occasions – copped heat in May over their Intimissimi campaign at the time.

Heidi was forced to turn off comments on an Instagram post celebrating the shoot after it was bombarded by critics who declared they weren’t comfortable with the nature of it.

“I would not be proud to show my daughter off in this way. I would feel embarrassed and sad,” one wrote.

“Somehow it’s weird to see mother and daughter in underwear,” another commented. “I mean, how many were photographed like this with their mother.”

“First thing I think of when I want to pose in my intimates: ‘My mum should be here!’” a third said, to which one person responded, “I know, kind of gross.”

It’s not the first time the pair copped criticism – a similar Intimissimi campaign was labelled “off-putting” by fans.

At the time, Leni addressed the backlash – telling Page Six she doesn’t read comments that have been made about her work.

“I honestly didn’t look at a lot of the reactions,” she told the outlet last October.

“I am overall happy with the campaign and I had an amazing day with my mum. I think the photos turned out great and we had an amazing time.

“I just don’t look at [social media commentary], honestly. If I don’t look at it, I don’t have to pay any attention to it, so I just don’t know what is there. I had an amazing day, an amazing shoot, it’s out, I love it.”
