"When Vogue asked me to do it, I said, 'Oh, yeah, sure. No problem.' I'm glad I didn't think about it because then I'm not sure I would have said yes, but I had gone to the Met ball as a guest before, and it's one of the best nights," she says.
It's not like she's hunting for a TV reality show, but, Wiedemann says, she wouldn't rule out more hosting gigs. Hmmm, she muses: A change in careers would allow her to enjoy those calorie-laden daiquiris her husband seems to enjoy on their beach vacations.
The plan wasn't necessarily for her to be a model. Yet, she says, she's been financially independent thanks to her work in front of the camera since the age of 19.
And, as long as magazines, fashion houses and big beauty brands are willing to pay her, they won't hear any complaints about what she's asked to wear. "I don't speak up if I'm working. As a model, no one pays me for my opinion," she says. "I want to wear whatever will make a great photo, whether I like it or not. But if the shoes are too small, I will complain!"
