Tag: Heidi Klum (1-4 of 4)
When viewers tune in to Fashion Police’s Oscar wrap-up on E! they’re probably expecting cutting remarks, but Joan Rivers – no stranger to controversy – went a bit further than that with some not-so-innocent jokes about Heidi Klum’s Oscar outfit.
Speaking about Klum’s showstopping gold dress with a seriously plunging neckline, Rivers remarked Monday, “The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens.” Yikes.
This made a lot of people quite upset, namely the Anti-Defamation League, who posted on their website: “Of all people, Joan Rivers should know better. This remark is so vulgar and offensive to Jews and Holocaust survivors, and indeed to all Americans, that we cannot believe it made it to the airwaves. Making it worse, not one of her co-hosts made any effort to respond or to condemn this hideous statement, leaving it hanging out there and giving it added legitimacy through their silence. Almost as bad as her original comment is the fact that she sat there doubled over with laughter after saying it.” READ FULL STORY »
Out-of towners got the chance to be part of the upcoming season of Project Runway when Heidi Klum hosted a fashion show smack dab in the middle of New York City’s Times Square last night.
After welcoming the crowd, Klum took her seat beside fellow Runway stars Michael Kors and Nina Garcia and guest judges Lauren Graham and costumer Patricia Field to view the designs created by the new crop of contestants, 16 hopefuls competing for the chance to win prizes including $100,000 seed money from L’Oreal Paris, a fashion spread in Marie Claire, a 2013 Lexus GS 350 and the chance to design and sell their collection at retail chain Lord & Taylor.
Though the audience didn’t get to see anyone auf’d, they were treated to a lesson on the realities of reality television. “I warned you, because this is TV we’re going to do it one more time,” Klum explained after the 32 models (each contestant presented two designs) completed their first finale walk. “And maybe this time we can get some different music, something a little more groovy.”
Now that I have your attention. Hey! Eyes down here, buddy!
Yesterday in New York, Kate Upton was announced as the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covergirl, and the last 24 hours have been a whirlwind for the statuesque 19-year-old beauty. The youngest Swimsuit cover model in nearly 30 years (Paulina Porizkova was only 18 when she graced the cover back in 1984) started her day on the Today show and she’ll visit David Letterman, where her cover was first unveiled yesterday, tonight. Upton took a quick break to chat with Entertainment Weekly about her now-famous cover photo and her role in the upcoming Three Stooges film.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Congratulations. It must be an exciting day for you.
KATE UPTON: It’s been crazy. I’m so happy to be on the cover. I love the photo. I couldn’t be more ecstatic. READ FULL STORY »
