Heidi Klum: "I'm Proud of Being the Curvy Model"

Heidi Klum didn’t plan on walking the runway of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last night, but let’s just say she’s a little bit impulsive. “I felt great the night of the fashion show and decided last minute to walk,” the supermodel, 36, who welcomed daughter Lou, with husband Seal, last month, tells PEOPLE exclusively. Klum, who had already been fitted for her dress, opened the Enchanted Forest-themed part of the show, wearing a vine-strewn corset and a full white skirt. “I loved my outfit,” she says, “so I thought, why not?” Her surprise appearance, known only to Victoria’s Secret insiders, drew screams and applause from a shocked audience during the live show Thursday night. Though Klum, who was expected only to host the festivities, said that while her new job behind the scenes meant there was “definitely less pressure,” walking in the show was a thrill for her. “I’m proud of being the curvy model on the Victoria’s Secret stage,” she says, adding that she enjoyed the show herself. “The Black Eyed Peas and all of the looks for the show were fantastic!” You can watch Heidi — and all the Angels — hit the runway when the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs on CBS at 10pm EST on Dec. 1.–Charlotte Triggs

I think she looks great here, and I was sad to hear her say she needs to lose another 30 lbs!

It’s normal for women to have curves. Why is this a bad thing? And since when does curvy=overweight? And why are we bashing Heidi Klum for being proud of having a normal woman’s figure? Her saying that she is proud of having curves is something we women should be celebrating!

Proud to be curvy?! She’s not curvy! And if she’s so proud, why is she covered up?

she’s beautifull, not curvy. i like models with a “plus size”better than the skinny anorexic skellets

Heidi looks curvy indeed. Very nice waist to hip ratio.
Julie, Christina Hendricks looks fabulous now that she has lost weight!

She looks great. Stop commenting on her size not being realistic. She is in an industry that requires that look and we all buy into it because we do not purchase items showcased by fat…yes I said fat..women. If we did, the notion of starving oneself to “look good” would not be an issue. Heidi, congratulations for looking healthy and slim six weeks after having a child. It is a testament to hard work. And yes, in comparison to those in your industry you are curvy and it looks good.

Kay you sound retarded, Heidi is MARRIED WTF are you talking about having a baby by one man and then the next,you dumb fool.

Please! Ladies….Curvy….It’s the boobs…Nothing else…We all have them…curves and all! I can’t believe that any woman would be jealous of her or another. No matter what you see in her…you have it, too! It’s all there! All of us work the same! She has nothing on any of us…God created us beautiful in His own way and we all need to look in the mirror and see what He sees. Heidi is beautiful, but no better than any other woman on the face of the planet!
