Speaking about her foray into modeling, Leni shared her famous mother’s advice to get out into the open.
She said, “She always tells me, ‘Just be true to yourself, and don’t let what other people say affect you or change what you do. And saying no is always okay.’
“My mom always tells me to just be myself and brush off any hatred I get, and that’s what I’m going for. I don’t read my comments. I think you should just block it. Don’t even think about it, just do what you have to do and do what you want to do.

“Don’t let anyone get in your way and tell you what you can’t do, just be yourself.”
Heidi shares Leni with ex Flavio Briatore, but her ex-husband Seal, whom she was married to from 2005 to 2014, adopted her when she was just five years old.
He remained in her life amid the split and the former couple also share sons Henry, 15, and Johan, 14, and daughter Lou, 11.
She added of her early desires to pursue modeling: “I’ve always wanted to do modeling, since I was 12 years old. It all started when I was in Brandy Melville. That was my favorite brand at the time.
Candid: She said of her mother’s advice, “She always tells me, ‘Just be true to yourself and don’t let what other people say influence you or change what you do. And it’s always okay to say no’
“I remember one of the girls who worked there said, ‘We’d love to shoot you in our clothes.’ I panicked because I loved the brand, and I was out shopping with my mom that day, so I was like ‘Mommy, please, I’m begging you! I’ve wanted to do this for so long. You can do it, why can’t I?’
‘She said no, and that I was too young. Since then I have been begging and begging. When I turned 16, she was finally like, ‘Okay, you can model now, that’s fine.’ I’m 17 now, so for the past year I’ve been modeling and I loved it.’
Leni also discussed how she and her mother are “very similar” in terms of a sense of humor, but have different styles.

She said, “I think our energy and sense of humor are very similar. We’ve been shooting covers together and working together, and we’re always dancing around, excited to be there and having fun. I feel like they are very similar.
“But we’re very different in some ways, especially in style. For example, her closet is about the size of three of my rooms put together. And it’s super packed, super crowded, clothes everywhere, shoes everywhere, belts, purses and glasses.
“My closet is very empty, because I’m always throwing things away, and I’m the opposite of a hoarder. If there’s something I wear but don’t think I’ll wear it again, I just give it to Goodwill.
Protective: Leni only recently started modeling and earlier this year Heidi admitted she was ‘a little concerned’ and wanted her to wait until she was older
“So my closet is very empty and hers is full of all kinds of glittery dresses and short skirts. Mine is baggy, oversized and large. I mean, my brother takes hoodies out of my closet.”
Leni only recently started modeling and earlier this year Heidi admitted she was “a little worried” and wanted her to wait until she was older.
“At first I was a little worried, honestly, she’s wanted to do this for a long time and I finally agreed,” she told ET in May.
‘She’s 17 years old. And of course I go with her to all the shoots because she is still a minor.
“But for me the most important thing is that she has fun. And she loves it, she enjoys it,” adding that Leni “loves the camera.”
