NEW YORK - AOL is making a big online play targeting women with the help of Heidi Klum.

The model and TV star and AOL on Wednesday unveiled a partnership to create exclusive original programming focused on fashion, beauty, parenting, arts and crafts, relationships and lifestyle.

Financial terms weren't disclosed.

The deal is AOL's latest step as it looks to boost its content offerings, in some cases with the help of big names, such as Ellen DeGeneres and others.

Klum and Full Picture Entertainment, the producers of Project Runway, will create video content, articles, blogs and photo galleries, among other things. The digital content offer is set to launch within months.

The partners mentioned the content will cover everything from "fun family activities to insider beauty tips to creating successful relationships at work and home."

"During my 15 years in the business, I've received so many questions on a variety of topics from my favorite toothbrush to juggling family and a busy work schedule," Klum said. "I'm bringing in the experts that have helped me over the years to help inspire you."

Said AOL chairman and CEO Tim Armstrong: "Our objective in 2011 is to make AOL the first choice online destination for women."
