Supermodel Heidi Klum has made her first red carpet appearance in New York since announcing her split from singer husband Seal.
The German beauty, who was still wearing her wedding ring, stepped out at Wednesday's (08Feb12) amfAR Gala Aids benefit to help kick off New York Fashion Week, which began on Thursday (09Feb12).
Klum posed for the cameras before heading inside Cipriani Wall Street to join guests including actresses Lindsay Lohan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Leighton Meester, Jennifer Hudson and Elizabeth Hurley.
Klum and Seal shocked the world in January (12) by confirming reports they had split after almost seven years of marriage.
Seal has spoken about the break-up, insisting the couple had grown apart following months of separation; Klum has yet to comment on the split.
