Joining the much-talked-about nude and pregnant Jessica Simpson fronted edition, Heidi Klum is also featured on a second cover of the April 2012 issue of ELLE. I guess Elle figured that they better have a safety net cover in case the Jessica Simpson one tanked. While magazine sales are likely largely subscription based a lot of people get drawn to a cover and buy the particular issue due to interest. I can’t see a naked pregnant Jessica Simpson boosting sales. I suppose that is why they also have a lovely cover with Heidi Klum this month as well. It never ceases to amaze me how beautiful she looks, year after year, kid after kid.
The recently divorced “Project Runway” babe looks stunning in a silk crepe slipdress from the Calvin Klein Collection paired with a white gold and diamond openwork bracelet from Bulgari and diamond bangles from Tiffany & Co. for the front page shot while chatting about everything from her split with Seal to when she feels the most beautiful. I must admit, I am still rather shocked about her and Seal as they always seemed like a happy couple. But I guess marriages never last in Hollywood.
Highlights from Miss Klum’s interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to ELLE!
On her early style:
“It was horrible. I wore too much makeup. I’d put on foundation, way too much blush. I had the worst clothes. I didn’t have heels. Where I come from, where would I need to wear heels?”
On the current tabloid frenzy around her break up with Seal:
“I feel like I’m in the eye of the tornado. It’s emotions inside of your body that are a tornado. And then the outside world doing all this craziness—with you wanting it or not wanting it—is another tornado. But as hard as it is, so is life.”
On her reluctance to talk to the press about the split:
“I don’t want to talk positively or negatively about the ups and downs that we had. Every couple goes through things. Unfortunately, we’re in the public, so the highs are out there. But I don’t think it’s necessary—especially for our children—to have the lows being printed in magazines and talked about.”
On when she feels most beautiful:
“To be honest, it’s with my children. In my job, people tell you that all the time: ‘This shoot was great. You look amazing.’ But you never know what they say when you turn away. But the kids don’t edit anything. When they kiss you and tell you they love you and say, ‘Mama, you’re the best’—that’s really the only thing you care about.”
