Reality TV titan Heidi Klum — the force behind and in front of the cameras on “Project Runway” and now a judge on “America’s Got Talent” — gave a star-spangled salute to America while vacationing in what looks to be the Caribbean.

Klum, 40, posted a photo of herself wading into crystal clear blue-green waters wearing a white bikini, waving two hand-held American flags and also wearing a head-dress of red, white and blue stars.

“Happy 4th of July everyone!” Klum wrote accompanying the photo, which she shared on Instagram on Thursday.

The German-born supermodel became an American citizen in 2008, while retaining dual citizenship in her native Germany.

America’s been very, very good to her: After gaining international fame as one of the most recognizable models on any of the world’s top fashion runways, she helped develop and launch “Project Runway,” which is still going strong after more than nine years. More recently, she became a judge on NBC’s summer hit, “America’s Got Talent.”
