Model Heidi Klum - Too heavy?

During an interview with Bild, top German designer Wolfgang Joop has made a swipe at at 'next top model' host and supermodel Heidi Klum by saying she is "too heavy" to be a runway queen.

In his interview, Joop says:
“No way, she is no runway model! Heidi Klum is simply too heavy and has too big a bust. And she always grins so stupidly. That is not avant-garde – that is commercial!”

Model agency head Louisa von Minckwitz has also spoken out publically branding Klum "curvy and too short".

The Chanel Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld also commented when asked about her saying:
“I don’t know Heidi Klum. She was never known in France. Claudia Schiffer also doesn’t know who she is.”
Heidi shows no insecurities about her body, telling GQ:
“My husband [Singer Seal] has seen the photos, I think it’s good to be sexy for your partner.”

Personally, I think Heidi has a beautiful body. She is curvy and if you're talking high fashion runways - Heidi doesn't fit the mould. Does that mean Heidi should lose weight in an attempt to become a skinny catwalk model? No, I don't think so.
Heidi Klum is an all rounder with looks, charisma, personality and intelligence. She is more successful and raking in a lot more money than catwalk models presenting for shows like Project Runway. Heidi also enjoys a lucritive contract with modelling for the popular Lingerie company Victoria's Secret. Victoria's secret models are expected to have curves.'s verdict: Don't change Heidi, you're gorgeous just as you are!
