Heidi Klum: "I'm Proud of Being the Curvy Model"

Heidi Klum didn’t plan on walking the runway of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last night, but let’s just say she’s a little bit impulsive. “I felt great the night of the fashion show and decided last minute to walk,” the supermodel, 36, who welcomed daughter Lou, with husband Seal, last month, tells PEOPLE exclusively. Klum, who had already been fitted for her dress, opened the Enchanted Forest-themed part of the show, wearing a vine-strewn corset and a full white skirt. “I loved my outfit,” she says, “so I thought, why not?” Her surprise appearance, known only to Victoria’s Secret insiders, drew screams and applause from a shocked audience during the live show Thursday night. Though Klum, who was expected only to host the festivities, said that while her new job behind the scenes meant there was “definitely less pressure,” walking in the show was a thrill for her. “I’m proud of being the curvy model on the Victoria’s Secret stage,” she says, adding that she enjoyed the show herself. “The Black Eyed Peas and all of the looks for the show were fantastic!” You can watch Heidi — and all the Angels — hit the runway when the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs on CBS at 10pm EST on Dec. 1.–Charlotte Triggs

See! She’s curvy right there! No, lower! To the left! See that curve? You’re looking right at it!

She’s hot. Leave her alone.

She looks absolutely fabulous….which makes me think that my curves are simply FAT. She’s a couple years my junior and two kids ahead of me. As a mother of two and 5′ 10″ myself – I haven’t seen a curvy body like that since I was 15. If that is society’s version of curvy, it’s no wonder why young teen girls are starving themselves these days. She knows she looks good, that’s why she did the surprise appearance, why dog it by saying “I was the biggest girl there”? Pah-leeeeezz. Doesn’t a comment like that just hurt the “normal” built female in this world?

I think she looks amazing, for 4 kids and she walks that runway like she OWNS it! I hope I look like her after I have kids, dang… As a model, I think she looks very good and she is a wonderful person and is goregous.

You call that curvy? They just say that because the other models are too skinny and hungry.

I agree with all the comments. Heidi your delusional! You have a beautiful body, especially after having a baby just months ago. I don’t see what you are talking about.

She isn’t worried about a thing. She’s beautiful by every definition of the word. She’s got a great marriage to a great guy who is a fantastic singer and she’s probably happier than anybody that she knows. Heidi never looked better, and always looks wonderful.

America is too fat!! Just because she had a baby four or five wks ago does not mean she should look as fat as she did five wks ago. She should look good she has a lot of help, trainer,chef. Everyone could look that good, just PUSH AWAY FROM THE TABLE a little earlier and go for a WALK OR RUN. Stop hating people because they are thin or normal weight. She has more curves than she wants, let it go.
