Heidi Klum Makes Post-Split Red Carpet Debut (PHOTOS)

She may be going through a tough time, but Heidi Klum looked nothing less than stellar when she stepped out Wednesday night for her first official appearance since her split from Seal.

Klum attended the New York for the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) gala and smiled shyly on the red carpet for photos. However, just like Katy Perry at the Super Bowl, she smartly avoided talking to the press.

The fashion-forward Klum donned a long Roberto Cavalli gown -- and, yes, her wedding ring -- for the gala, but opted to wear a black pantsuit for the after-party at Double Seven, according to Us Weekly.

While we've gotten a few glimpses of Klum since she and her husband of seven years, Seal, announced their separation last month, Wednesday night was the first time she's officially stepped back into the public spotlight.

Seal, however, has been promoting his new album, "Soul 2," and was making the press rounds amid all the divorce chatter last month.

While they may be separated, it seems the couple isn't ready to officially move on just yet. Both Klum and Seal have been photographed wearing their respective wedding rings ever since the separation news broke.
