Elle and Heidi Fight Over "The Body"

Elle and Heidi Fight Over "The Body"

Elle Macpherson is saying Heidi stole her name and she is pissed. Elle has been known as "The Body" ever since Time magazine gave her the name for their cover story in 1986. In fact, Elle's skin-care line is called "Elle Macpherson The Body." She can't believe Heidi is claiming it's her name while promoting Victoria's Secret's new bra. The battle for the body is on! Here's more:

This week, Klum has been claiming the title for herself in a saturation Victoria's Secret ad campaign for The Body bra. "They call me The Body — and now I have a bra named after me," the German hottie claims in TV commercials.

But not so fast, Fräulein Klum!

"We saw that and were like, Oh my god!" Elle Macpherson Intimates spokeswoman Melissa Edwards told Lowdown yesterday. "We were initially flabbergasted."

Elle's flack, Edwards, invoked the 1986 Time cover and added: "We have numerous press clippings in the office referring to her as 'The Body.' Everything from Harper's Bazaar to Vogue to the recent Sports Illustrated calls her that. In terms of public record, that name belongs to Elle."

Macpherson markets her own skin-care line, "Elle Macpherson The Body," along with a lingerie brand and a fitness video titled "The Body Workout." Klum — who was once called "The Body Two," in deference to Elle — is a relative Heidi-come-lately, and didn't hit the United States until the late 1990s. Both Klum and Macpherson have been favorites of the Sports Illustrated annual swimsuit issue, and both appeared in the mag's latest.

Both these women have amazing bodies. Check out some cute pics of Heidi showing off her beautiful pregnant body at The Early Show this week so

Heidi Klum is so much better looking than that other broad, what's her name. Plus, I'd rather have The Body like Heidi's. More people know of H.Klum from "Project Runway" and her offie-does ee (phonetically speaking offie-does-ee).. What if Janice Dickson had a bra named after her? Well, I wouldn't wear it because she's all plastic.

Hmmm....I seem to remember a certain Governor named Jesse Ventura being called The Body long ago when he was a wrestler. Jesse "The Body" Ventura. He wins the title. Back off babes !

heidi is great looking but so was elle in her hayday...i agree they should have marketed it better since elle was def. known as the body! she could have been the new body or the somebody or the curvy body or the body that many ppl get it on thinking about...kind of a long one there but hey whatever!

IMO Heidi has the better body. Also aren't her legs insured for a ridiculous amount of money? I also think that Heidi is better looking than Elle.

Elle did have the title first to be fair.

Elle is exceptionally over-rated. No curves, no sex appeal -- she's a just a gazillion feet tall. Face -- blah. Heidi is by far more befitting of "The Body," moniker but since Elle was named such first, Heidi should have picked another nick. Ass, Tits, & Hips is a good one, but don't know how many bras that would help sell.

How childish, elle doesn't even model anymore cant she accept that she WAS the body and now it has been taken by someone else. Which is totaly natural, you can expect to be THE BODY your whole life!

I love this dress on Heidi.

I am not a fan of Elle's but she was/IS 'The Body' I had never heard that title attributed to anyone else until Heidi tried to claim it the other day much to my surprise.

well duh heidi has the actual body. they pretty much have the same body except heidi is tanner and has bigger boobs (at least she has boobs), making her the bombshell. but if that elle person really wants to have the body, there can just be two bodies.
