For some people, Halloween is an excuse to get dressed up like a damn fool, but for others, it’s an annual tradition to play Halloween Bystander and watch what kind of over-the-top nonsense The Unofficial Halloween Queen, Heidi Klum, steps out in. She’s been everything: Michael Jackson’s Thriller werewolf, Jessica Rabbit, old Heidi Klum, skinless Heidi Klum, Heidi Klone. This year, Heidi and her boyfriend Tom Kaulitz went as the ogre Queen and King of the swamp, Fiona and Shrek from Shrek.
Recently-ex Project Runway hostess and the Halloween version of SNL’s Penelope, Heidi Klum, has no regrets about leaving the brand that made her famous. In fact, she did everything but straight up tell People that the show has been a bore for several seasons now and she’s glad she’s leaving.
The American Music Awards doesn’t have the respectability of the Grammys or the pizazz of the MTV VMAs, but it’s got…well, it’s got a pointy award and people that show up, and that’s all you really need for a music award show. As such, guests still put in some effort for the red carpet. Post Malone’s hair is still a mess and he’s got those “Yes I’ve been slowly picking off my Shellac manicure” nails, but he also came through with a bedazzled belt buckle and nudie suit made by Union Western Clothing featuring his initials and several snakes. I guess he didn’t get the memo that Taylor Swift had the whole snake thing locked down last night. Oh well, it still pulled his whole look together. That is, if he was going for a look that tells people he’s a very successful businessman who sells snakes at an Alabama swap meet.
Heidi Klum is still dating Tom Kaulitz of Tokio Hotel, but in a turn of events that can best be described as Sliding Doorsian, she recently revealed that if the timing was different, she might be dating another younger man from the music industry. Drake texted Heidi Klum once and he may have wondered if he sent it to the right number. Oh, Heidi got that text; she just ignored it.
All those housewives traipsing around Andy Cohen’s office must stink to the fashion crowd because just as he was touting how great it was that Project Runway was heading back to Bravo, its two leading stars are saying, “See ya later, bitch!” and taking their talent elsewhere. Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn are ditching the show to produce what sounds like the same thing with a different title on Amazon. So basically the original Project Runway is going to look like an off-brand Project Runway to whatever it is Heidi and Tim do.
Of course she doesn’t; that’s the smile of a woman who doesn’t have to worry about hearing the words, “Not tonight honey, my sciatica’s acting up.”
For about four months now, 45-year-old Heidi Klum has been dating 28-year-old Tom Kaulitz of Tokio Hotel. Heidi is 17 years older than Tom. This isn’t Heidi’s first time at the younger man rodeo; last year Heidi split from Vito Schnabel, who was about 14 years younger than her. So does Heidi have a thing for guys born in the 1980s or what? She recently confessed during an interview with InStyle that the date on their birth certificate doesn’t matter to her.
“My boyfriend is many years younger than me, and lots of people are questioning that and asking about it. That’s really the only time when age seems to be shoved in my face and I have to give an answer for it. I don’t really think about it that much otherwise. You have to just live a happy life without worrying too much about what people think because worrying is only going to give you more wrinkles.”
Heidi is one of those people who is morphing into an indeterminate age (aka vaguely mid-30s), and thanks to that facial hair, I doubt Tom gets carded that often at the liquor store. So it’s not like they look so different together. And thankfully she’s not insecure about it. If I were Heidi, I know it wouldn’t take long before I held a picture from Halloween 2013 up to my face and asked Tom to play Spot The Difference while warning that he better not say he can’t find any.
