Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Old Penguins (not the animal variety), art deco furniture, Helmut Newton, reading “Grub Street” (a New York food blog), and Darlinka Hooverova (she’s my thinspiration)

  • I’m surprised. When I have seen her snaps I wasn’t 100% sure, but when I saw the video my opinion changed. Heidi is great. And it’s also interesting to know her ethic, what a great mix. Can’t wait for more.

    I’m not a fan of her face. But she has a pretty figure.

  • Hahahaa I love how she mentioned Darlinka Hooverova as her “thinspiration”!! Everyone loves a funny model. It doesn’t hurt that she has a great look, also.

  • April

    She has sex appeal that most models don’t have.

    She IS young the rest of the industry are children.

  • Intheknownow

    MODELS SHOULD BE ADULTS, NOT CHILDREN! IF YOU SERIOUSLY ARE A WOMAN AND WANT TO LOOK LIKE THE CHILDREN IN MOST ADS YOU HAVE SOME MENTAL ISSUES! NOTHING AGAINST THE CHILDREN, IT DOESN’T MAKE THEM LESS BEAUTIFUL, IT STILL DOESN’T MAKE THEM ADULTS THOUGH. LET THE CHILDREN BE CHILDREN AND LET THE ADULTS BE ADULTS. IF WE DON’T GIVE CHILDREN THE TIME TO BLOSSOM WIHT THE “TIME IS NOW” MENTALITY, THEN WHY SHOULD THEY WAIT TO DO OTHER ADULT THINGS……I’M SPEAKING SPECIFICALLY IN THE MODELING WORLD..
