Heidi Klum only thinks about her age when it’s “shoved” in her face by people commenting on her toy boy.

The 45-year-old model is loved up with musician Tom Kaulitz, who’s 17 years her junior.

Heidi has been dating the 28-year-old Tokio Hotel rocker since March, and proudly showed him off at Cannes Film Festival’s amfAR Gala in May when the couple made their red carpet debut,

“Lately, I’m being reminded more about my age by people other than myself,” she sighed to America’s InStyle. “My boyfriend is many years younger than me, and lots of people are questioning that and asking about it. That’s really the only time when age seems to be shoved in my face and I have to give an answer for it.

“I don’t really think about it that much otherwise. You have to just live a happy life without worrying too much about what people think because worrying is only going to give you more wrinkles.”

Luckily for Heidi, she can give models half her age a run for their money when it comes to her looks and toned figure.

And the Project Runway host isn’t shy when to comes to showing off her figure, something she credits to her German upbringing, and happily posts sexy selfies on social media.

“I’m coming from the world of modelling and I’ve always had a little bit of an art director inside of me,” she said when asked the secret to taking a great selfie. “I love taking cool, fun photos. I literally just figured out how to do the self timer on my phone. Before, I was always like, ‘My arm is not long enough!’ Now it’s a game changer because you don’t need to hold it yourself and you can figure out how you want to lay and how to get your legs in there, and all that stuff.”

Heidi Klum defends decision to allow her daughters to wear heels

Heidi Klum has blasted those critical of her decision to allow her daughters to wear high heels.

The supermodel rose to fame in the 1990s becoming the very first German Victoria’s Secret Angel in 1999, and went on to give birth to four children: 14-year-old Leni, 12-year-old Henry, 11-year-old Johan and 8-year-old Lou. In a recent interview with Elle U.S., Heidi admitted that she faced plenty of backlash over the fact she allows her two daughters to wear high heeled shoes, but is unfazed by the words of disapproving critics.

“People get upset, especially in Germany, if they see my daughters wearing high heels. Big deal!” the 45-year-old retorted. “If we go to a restaurant, they like to get dressed up. It’s fun for them. So what if they hobble on their little heels for 20 steps from the car to the restaurant? As long as they’re good kids and they get good grades, they can wear what they want to wear.”

Heidi has since taken a step back from the fashion industry to focus on business ventures such as her Heidi Klum Intimates lingerie line, as well as forging a career in television by hosting shows like Germany’s Next Topmodel and Project Runway. The fashion icon was also tapped as a judge on America’s Got Talent in 2013, and shared she was keen to give some style advice to co-star Simon Cowell.

“Since the day I met him, everyone was always like, ‘Simon’s coming!’ Very afraid of him,” she scoffed. “I just went up to him and said, ‘So, Simon, when are we going to do a makeover?’”

Heidi added that she believes her talent as a television judge lies in her straightforward honesty.

“I’ve never been wishy-washy about anything,” she insists. “I don’t like it when people have no opinion.”

Christian Siriano: ‘Eyewear can be just as fun as clothes’

Christian Siriano wants his customers to enjoy buying eyewear as much as they do clothes.

The designer rose to fame after winning Project Runway in 2008 and has since gone on to attract a legion of celebrity fans including Cardi B, Ashley Graham and former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama.

Siriano has recently turned his attention to eyewear and partnered with Transitions Optical to design a range of colourful trendy glasses, and in doing so, is certain he’s filling a gap in the market.

“It’s nice to work on something that feels very like something I wanted or needed,” he explained in an interview with People. “Getting dressed every day should be a fun experience so why should your eyewear be any different? These lenses give wearers freedom of expression and comfortable vision day and night. I’m loving the product.”

The 32-year-old, who recently separated from his husband of almost two years Brad Walsh, is always wearing a pair of glasses. However, he is adamant that his latest venture will prompt him to be more diverse with his eyewear choices.

“I’m actually really bad that I never change my glasses. I wear my glasses and never put sunglasses on, which is a really bad habit,” he laughed. “I probably have maybe 20 pairs of glasses and I literally wear the same pair every day. But with these new lenses with different colours, I am going to start switching them out more because now I actually have a reason to.”

The fashion star has his eye on a pair of “really cool gold lenses,” though also admitted he wasn’t a fan of wearing glasses in his younger years.

“You just feel like a nerd,” said Siriano. “But now I can’t imagine not wearing them. It is so funny. It is my look now. I love how they have become such an accessory for people to wear if even if they don’t need them.”

Heidi Klum still feels at ease posing in her underwear.

The 45-year-old made history when she was tapped as the first German Victoria’s Secret Angel and enjoyed a 13-year career with the lingerie brand until she decided to hang up her wings in 2010.

Heidi hosted five of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows during her tenure and stole the 2009 presentation by walking the runway just five weeks after giving birth to her youngest child Lou.

Though it has been eight years since she departed, the fashion star still feels happy stripping off.

“People probably recognise me most in lingerie with wings on my back. That might be my favourite (look) too,” she commented while interviewing long-time friend Gwen Stefani for InStyle U.S. “I feel quite comfortable not having a whole lot on. Then you don’t have to worry about stepping on your dress.”

Heidi, who is also mother to 14-year-old Leni, 12-year-old Henry and 11-year-old Johan, noted that the Hollaback Girl hitmaker is one of her biggest fashion inspirations when it comes to clothes, thanks to her signature red lip and effortless mixing and matching of different aesthetics.

“Women inspire women, and Gwen has definitely done that for me. Her style is iconic because she has done every kind of look, from street to Harajuku to glam,” she praised. “I’ve been on the (fashion) ‘Don’t’ pages a lot. You (Gwen) never have.”

The Project Runway judge also expressed her love for vintage attire “that doesn’t cost a lot” and opened up about her off-duty style.

“(My wardrobe) is a cluster of colours, patterns, and things I can’t get rid of. So many pairs of ripped jeans,” she shared. “When I’m off, I’m in jeans and sunglasses, with my hair in a bun.”

Christian Siriano and husband Brad Walsh have decided to end their marriage.

The couple announced their engagement in July 2013 and went on to marry at their summer home in Danbury, Connecticut, three years later.

However, the pair have chosen to go their separate ways, with Brad announcing the news via a post on his Instagram Stories.

“Bit more than a month ago my husband and I separated,” the singer-songwriter wrote on Monday (25Jun18). “I was contacted by a writer for a website who somehow found out, so rather than let them break it, I’m telling you myself. It’s nobody’s business and I don’t want to discuss, but that’s what’s up (shrugging emoji).”

A representative on behalf of the popular fashion designer also confirmed the news in a statement to Us Weekly.

“They were together for 11 years, love each other very much and request privacy at this time,” they told the publication.

Christian and Brad exchanged matching bracelets as opposed to rings when they decided to wed, but called off their engagement in 2015, and reconciled before their big day.

Guests at the wedding ceremony included make-up artist and America’s Next Top Model regular Jay Manuel, actress Alicia Silverstone, and Kelly Osbourne, while Orange Is the New Black star Danielle Brooks performed.

In spite of the split, it appears that Christian and Brad are on amicable terms judging by their social media profiles. Last week, the Project Runway winner reposted one of Brad’s tweets in which the music producer and artist had advertised some of his new paintings available to purchase.

Christian Siriano: ‘All women should be able to look cute in a dress’

Christian Siriano is adamant that women of all shapes and sizes should be able to enjoy fashion.

The American designer has become a popular choice amongst celebrities including Christina Hendricks, Kelly Clarkson and Cardi B – who wore one of his dresses to announce her pregnancy on Saturday Night Live in April (18).

Siriano has also been widely praised for his commitment to diversity, but the former Project Runway winner believes it’s crucial that all women are able to shop in his stores.

“The whole point of being a designer is making people feel good,” he explained during a discussion with Fern Mallis at 92Y. “We’re not here to cure cancer; we’re here to make people look cute in a dress. You want to look cute in a dress and you’re a size 26, why not?”

The fashion mogul previously interned at Marc Jacobs, Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen before launching his namesake label in 2008.

However, he admitted that like many other top designers, inclusivity wasn’t at the top of his agenda when he first caught his big break.

“At the beginning of my career, I was doing things that other people would accept more, but as I went on, I was over it,” he recalled. “It was very frustrating to hear a woman say to us, ‘You don’t have my size or you don’t have something that I can wear.'”

The 31-year-old famously provided Leslie Jones with the outfit she wore on the red carpet at the Ghostbusters premiere in 2016, after the complained that several other brands had refused to dress her.

“But whether it’s Leslie or Gwyneth Paltrow, I don’t think about a woman’s size when I dress her. I ask myself, ‘Am I a fan?'” he previously wrote in an essay for Glamour.com.

Zac Posen would ‘love’ to design men’s clothing

Zac Posen is open to designing menswear collections in the future..

The American designer launched his namesake label in 2001 and has dressed some of the world’s most famous women, including Uma Thurman, Gwyneth Paltrow and Rihanna. Though his own brand is catered exclusively to women, Posen has recently revealed the results of his partnership with Delta Air Lines, in which he was recruited to redesign the company’s iconic uniforms. And having had the opportunity to dress men and women in line with the collaboration, the fashion star is interested in expanding his client base.

“I’d love to do men’s clothing,” he insisted in an interview with Teen Vogue. “It really has to do with time. I’ve had my company for over 17 years and you have to give things the right time and have the right partners in the process. That’s really key before you jump into something. At the right time, we’ll be there. I make everything I wear every single day, head to toe.”

The 37-year-old added that each suit he wears as a Project Runway judge has been created via Brooks Brothers, the historic clothier he has been creative director of since 2014.

“I feel very lucky and fortunate to have that experience,” he smiled. “I’m really happy with the suits I own. And some of the mens’ Delta uniform, I’ll be incorporating with jeans for a more casual look.”

Though Posen is currently overseeing numerous projects, he always finds time to unwind from his many duties in order to return to his duties with a clear head.

“I go to my kitchen. I cook. I take a fashion detox,” he explained. “I have a cookbook, it’s called Cooking with Zac. That is my calm. I turn on my music, I close my door, and I drape. I’m very old-school in that way but it happens, and it just comes.”

Christian Siriano is partnering with TJ Maxx on a purse-friendly clothing, accessories and homeware collection.

The former Project Runway champion, who launched his mega-successful label on the back of the show in 2008, is one of the best-loved designers working in fashion, thanks to his size inclusive creations.

And now fashion fans with tighter budgets than Siriano’s celebrity clientele can get their hands on his work thanks to his new partnership.

“I love to have a balance. I think it’s very important. I think you can start one place at this fantasy dream world and you can take it in all directions,” the 32-year-old told philly.com. “We just started partnering with TJ Maxx, we are going to be doing clothes, home goods, accessories, rugs, pillows, dresses, tops. I’ve been doing Payless (discount footwear company) for almost 10 years now. Can you believe it? I put my shoes on the runway. I love pairing a $10,000 dress with a $20 shoe. That’s what fashion is. That’s what style is.”

Numerous stars showed off Siriano’s designs at the recent Tony Awards, including Laurie Metcalf, who scooped the Tony for Broadway production Three Tall Women, and stage star Laura Osnes.

Siriano himself was also recently honoured, making the 2018 Time 100 List.

“I mean, it’s crazy to be up there with amazing people like Oprah,” he exclaimed. “I feel really proud, like I’m helping change the industry and what their thoughts are on what’s beautiful in fashion. I hope other people follow. It feels good.”

Project Runway returning to Bravo in wake of Harvey Weinstein scandal

Fashion show Project Runway is returning to U.S. network Bravo in the wake of the sexual harassment allegations made against Harvey Weinstein.

The Heidi Klum-fronted series, which sees aspiring fashion designers compete to win a cash prize and magazine spread, was initially aired on Bravo for its first five seasons, but was later moved to Lifetime by Weinstein for the next 11.

In 2016, bosses at the A&E network, parent company to Lifetime, inked a three-year renewal deal, but after news broke of Weinstein’s alleged behaviour, which includes claims of rape as well as assault and harassment, A&E executives filed documents to terminate the deal with The Weinstein Company (TWC), saying the company was in breach of the contract. TWC has since declared bankruptcy.

On Monday (14May18), Bravo personality Andy Cohen announced Project Runway’s plans for the 17th series.

“Project Runway is coming back where it all started, it’s coming home on Bravo,” he said at NBCUniversal’s upfront presentation in New York.

He also tweeted the news, with the post garnering more than 6,000 likes.

Last month, it was reported that German supermodel Klum is taking officials at TWC to court in a dispute over unpaid funds from her work on the reality show.

According to TheBlast.com, Klum failed to receive a proper accounting balance from TWC officials, and insists that although the amount of funds cannot currently be determined, she had been due to receive a guaranteed pay cheque as producers had already told her they were moving forward with a 17th season of Project Runway in March.

Stars including John Legend, Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence are also reportedly owed large sums of money from the now defunct company.

Christian Siriano spent $50,000 shipping out Oscar dresses

Christian Siriano was left with a $50,000 (£35,500) FedEx bill during Oscar season.

The designer launched his career after winning Project Runway in 2008, and has become known for dressing women of all shapes and sizes, famously coming to the rescue of Leslie Jones after she claimed no designers would dress her for her Ghostbusters premiere

His reputation meant that lots of celebrities were keen to wear his designs to the Academy Awards earlier this month (Mar18), and Siriano has now shared exactly how much his popularity has set him back financially.

“It’s so much money to make these custom things and send them around the world. I mean it can be $2,000 (£1,400) to overnight a large box to L.A.,” the 32-year-old explained during an appearance on SiriusXM’s The Michelle Collins Show.

“I want to tell you what my FedEx bill was the month of the Oscars, you really want to know what it is?”

Michelle estimated a total of $58,000 ($41,000), to which Siriano replied: “maybe about $8,000 shy of that.”

The fashion mogul revealed that he delivered “about a hundred pieces” for the actual awards ceremony and the after-parties, which were worn by Hollywood stars including Amy Adams and Whoopi Goldberg.

However, he pointed out that most celebrity stylists “don’t have a budget for shipping,” which is why it was down to him to handle the bill in order to maximise his exposure.

As well as speaking on the radio show, Siriano and his musician husband Brad Walsh also paid a visit to the Bottomless Closet charity in New York, which promotes self-sufficiency among economically disadvantaged women in New York City.

“Today was a great day visiting the amazing women who run @bottomlessclosetnyc!” he wrote in a post on his Instagram page. “They are changing lives for so many. If you are looking for a charity to support this is a great choice!”
