Heidi Klum: “The ‘Heidi Barbie’ Voice Makes Seal Crazy!”

09/21/2009 at 02:08 PM ET

Heidi Klum’s latest role? Voicing “Heidi Barbie,” the 11.5-inch mini-me version of the supermodel and “Project Runway” host, who attended New York Fashion Week in place of Klum, who was back in L.A. with husband Seal awaiting the birth of her fourth child. The doll, whose voice sounds like a fast-talking version of Klum on helium, interviewed such style luminaries as Michael Kors, Rachel Zoe and Mario Testino backstage at the fashion shows. “The ‘Heidi Barbie’ voice makes Seal crazy,” says Klum, who “was just riffing” when voicing the doll’s interviews and observations (sample line: “This is my first time hailing a caaaab in New York City!”), according to her rep. Of course, Heidi Barbie was appropriately attired in a sequined minidress, Victoria’s Secret undies and a ring by jeweler-to-the-stars Lorraine Schwartz.

side note: i think it was utterly groce of heidi’s huge belly in a clinging dress at the emmy’s.

I couldn’t find the word “groce” in the dictionary. Is that a new word? Surely it couldn’t be intended to mean that Heidi Klum, a Victoria’s Secret beauty, looks unattractive because of her pregnancy. That would be entirely too misogynistic for an intelligent reader to write. It must mean something else…

I love Heidi Klum. She looks spectacular. She is unpretentious and down to earth and what is extraordinary about her is that she always appears happy, genuinely happy.
