Heidi Klum Weighs In on Ridiculous "Heavy" Claim

Heidi Klum took a break from the Fashion Week runways to promote a new Spring look kit at Victoria's Secret in NYC. At the event, Heidi spoke about recent comments by a German designer calling her too "heavy" for the runway. She said, "It’s a life where everyone can say what they want to say and everyone can have their opinion — that is his . . . In this business you have to be fit, but I always try to be a good role model and not too thin." Between her healthy upbeat attitude and continued commitment to raising awareness about Heart Disease, Heidi fits right in as a superhero.

Heidi, is a beautiful woman with a great body for Lingerie.. She is a size 42...{Italian} Too voluptuous for runway. Doesnt mean she doesnt have a great body...just a DIFFERENT body than runway requires..

Um...real sized women don't wear that runway crap anyway. We should just financially support the designers who support us. Period.*if they think Heidi's fat, we're all screwed anyway :D *

She's far from heavy. She's tall so she's going to weigh a bit more because of that, but it doesn't show.

I think Heidi looks great! But that's just my opinion.

that comment made by Lagerfeld only gave her more publicity.She shouldn't complain. When you choose to live in a public eye, people will say what they wanna say.

It was Wolfgang Joop who said she was heavy. This guy here:<img src=http://www.welt.de/multimedia/archive/00311/Joop_DW_Lifestyle_B_311306g.jpg>I think his statement was ridiculous, but I was even more annoyed by what Karl :sick: Lagerfeld said: <em>"I don't know Heidi Klum. She was never known in France. Claudia Schiffer also doesn't know who she is".</em> What a prick! And Claudia Schiffer was always <strong>horrible</strong> on the catwalk, someone even said once "she walked like a camel". I agree with that.

German dude probably doesn't like females to start...and if she's heavy then I'm tipping the scales as morbidly obese at 131 lbs and 5'3"

oh my goodness ... what is she wearing??? I LOVE Heidi Klum. I think she is amazing - on and off the runway. (Seriously, too heavy?? Has he seen her in the Victoria's Secret shows??) But that outfit is horrible!!!! I've never seen her so poorly dressed!

seriously - someone called her 'too heavy' for the runway? that's just insane. she's got an AMAZING body. just cause she's not a skeleton, that doesn't mean that she's too heavy. lucky for her, she's at a point in her career that she can tell that person to just kiss off.
