Heidi Klum introduces New York to her new bra by Victoria's Secret.
I needed to weigh in on the big "Body" controversy between super-duper-uber models Heidi Klum and Elle MacPherson:
The background: In an item picked up by a number of papers, including The Bee, it was recently reported that MacPherson is "flabbergasted" that Victoria's Secret's latest bra is called "The Body" and that Klum is appearing in promotions and ads for it, saying, "They call me 'The Body' - and now I have a bra named after me."
Well, if it's been 20 years since MacPherson was dubbed "The Body" by Time magazine, then maybe it's time for a new bod to assume the title, and Klum certainly seems to fit the bill. Of course, a Bee sports columnist, when asked who he thought was the original "Body," piped up with Jesse Ventura, the former wrestler-turned-governor. Good answer.
Meanwhile, speaking of Klum, I thought it might be interesting to find out how "Project Runway" contestant Angela Keslar's I.N.C ensemble for Macy's is doing.
It was hard to get a line on the online activity, but a sales associate for the Macy's in the Roseville Galleria - the closest local venue, as I had posted earlier, that is carrying the outfit - told me recently that she's yet to ring up any of the items: cropped jacket, long-sleeve top or the trousers.
Apparently there have been plenty of looky-loos, she says, but few takers. Why? Well, if you ask me, maybe it's because the short, cropped jacket ($129) has no hooks or buttons, so it won't close. It's a little pricey for the line - especially if you buy the entire suit. And it's not very business-like.
Still, if you thought there was no chance you could own a part of "Runway" glory, head to the Galleria. Your pants ($89) are waiting.
