10 Questions With... Heidi!
Andy Cohen chats with Heidi Klum.
My phone's ringing and on the other end is queen of BRAVO and ruler of the runway...
HEIDI KLUM! EVERYONE'S TALKING ABOUT WHAT A SUPER-HOT PREGGERS HOTTIE YOU ARE AND ABOUT YOUR GREAT CLOTHES THIS SEASON. WHO DESIGNED WHAT YOU WORE?
I wore some things from ("Runway" season 1 designers) Kevin Johnn and Kara Saun. Also I threw in some Malandrino, some stuff from Donna Karan, and some Kors.
EVEN OUTSIDE OF THE SHOW YOU'VE BEEN WEARING CLOTHES BY SOME OF LAST SEASON'S DESIGNERS... WHO HAVE YOU WORN THE MOST AND WHY?
I have worn a bunch of Kara Saun pieces - I really like her things and she really comes through. She's business oriented and comes through with what she promises - I had a lot of events to do in Germany while pregnant and I called her and told her what I had to do - she came up with some great pregnancy things and sent them to me. She just comes through!
LET'S PLAY WORD ASSOCIATION W/ THE REMAINING FOUR DESIGNERS. I SAY THEIR NAME AND YOU SAY THE FIRST THOUGHT YOU HAVE:
elegant, groovy and he reminds me of a Beatle... a rock star
feminine, exquisite, impeccable - never a thread hanging off
all over the place, fun, and innovative
nuts, talented, crazy
THE OTHER THING EVERYONE'S TALKING ABOUT IS SANTINO...
He is a nutcase and sometimes gets on people's nerves. He's a great designer - he stands out because his outfits stand out. He really has a flavor. You can always say which piece is his vs. other designers - you always know which is a Santino dress and that's a good thing. At the end of the day he's a good, modern, new designer... But also he says rude things to Michael to his face and gets on our nerves... who are you to say that to Michael to his face, this proven designer?
WHAT DID YOU THINK OF ALL THE BACK-TALK ON THE RUNWAY THIS SEASON?
They got a lot snippier. First season they weren't as snippy. Maybe they were too comfortable or maybe because they saw it in season one. In season one no one knew how it would turn out, how they'd look on camera. I think they were just more comfortable. When Santino called out Michael and was a know-it-all that was upsetting. You don't talk like that to us, you should be classy and you'll succeed. Don't be a know-it-all it takes away from you as a designer. Andre's crying fit was something - so much of their drama is coming through... it makes for great TV but it's kind of annoying when you are sitting there.
WHAT ARE FAVORITE DRESSES DESIGNED SO FAR?
I love the very first Santino dress - it was purple/bluish. That was one of my favorites - impeccable, beautiful. I love Chloe's clothes-off-the-back dress. It was a hard challenge and she kept it simple, but beautiful. I'd wear both of those dresses. Daniel V's orchid dress was amazing in it's construction. Chloe's suit that she made for Nick was great - she'd never done a suit before! It fit so well - that's why she's impeccable.
IS IT SCARY TO SAY AUF WEIDERSEN?
No it's not scary. I'm hard that way. May the best person win, is my philosophy. I view it like I view soccer - people ask me if I am rooting for Germany in the soccer and I just think the best person should win. I don't have a favorite designer. Each challenge is different -I go challenge for challenge and look for which is the best. May the best designer win and so if we're letting someone go it's not hard. Remember, this is my mother language - it has become another meaning on the show - it just means "goodbye, I'll see you again" kind of thing. It's become a mean thing on the show.
WHO'S THE MOST SURPRISING FAN OF THE SHOW THAT YOU'VE ENCOUNTERED?
Meryl Streep. I couldn't believe it. I admire her and she's so amazing and I did a walk-on on "The Devil Wears Prada" and she's like "Oh my Gosh I love your show!"
WHAT'S THE BEST THING ABOUT BEING MARRIED TO SEAL?
Just to be his wife!
WHAT'S YOUR FAVE SEAL SONG?
HEIDI WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO SET ME UP ON A DATE WITH AN ARYAN?
It's in motion.
HEIDI, AUF WEIDERSEN!
