The German-born beauty was positively glowing with her loved ones nearby as they perused through shops on the famed Abbot Kinney shopping area near the beach.

Heidi's eldest son Henry missed the outdoor family adventure, which included Heidi's mom, Erna, 13-year-old daughter Leni, 10-year-old son Jonah and seven-year-old daughter Lou.

Fresh from her appearance at the Santa Monica fundraiser, the America's Got Talent judge opted not to change from the event and wore a flowing tank top dress which featured a large black and white leopard print.

Oldest daughter Leni looked like the spitting image of her famous mother, and donned a white tank top and distressed denim jeans for the outdoor excursion.

Youngest son Johan wore a bright blue patterned shirt with neon green shorts and matching socks.

Little Lou sported a black shirt, denim shorts and black leggings with fun white paint splatters across her legs.

Heidi was recently spotted looking a bit glum between takes on set of a commercial for her new clothing line in the desert this weekend. 

Perhaps the model was less enthusiastic than usual due to the fact her threads are being carried by the budget German supermarket chain Lidl.

Klum certainly looked every inch the catwalk beauty as she pranced around in a revealing black mini dress in front of cackling film crew workers. 

So glum Klum: Heidi did not look excited to be filming a Lidl commercial in California at the weekend

At least someone's having fun: Some of the crew were cackling in the background as she pranced around in her budget supermarket clothing

However the canny old pro seemed to be grinning and bearing it, carrying on regardless in the sweltering California sunshine.

At one point in the Americana-themed shoot she jumped into a classic red hot rod as the cameras rolled. 

The German beauty's debut range for Lidl premiered at New York Fashion Week earlier this year, and hit stores in September. 

The first range included a leopard-print blazer, tops, bomber jackets, skinny jeans, and leather and lace pieces. 

In the black books: Even wearing a revealing mini dress was not enough to give her cheer

Cheap, but not cheerful: At least she will be raking in the cash for her troubles

And it was so cheap some items could be picked up for less than $10.

Heidi is said to be ready to defend embattled Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein after he donated two auction items to Aids charity AMFAR's annual fundraiser during the Cannes Film Festival with the caveat a portion of the takings goes to the American Repertory Theater.

She and the likes of George Clooney, Johnny Depp and Ryan Gosling are all prepared to put in a good word for the movie mogul over the dispute.

Harvey, who produces the clotheshorse's Project Runway show, was fired by The Weinstein Company, which he helped create, in the wake of the sexual harassment claims that emerged three days ago.
