Nick HEARTS Modelinia!!!Heidi Klum in "Spiked Heel", a new web series exclusively on Modelinia.com So I was watching Miss Heidi Klum on some entertainment TV show and she was teaching a reporter how to walk in high heels--Heidi did a fabulous job, but the reporter, well, not so much! She mentioned something about a new Website called Modelinia and you know I had to do some investigatin'!!! Modelinia.com is a model, fashion, make-up and entertainment site that highlights, well, what else: Models!!! It was officially launched weeks ago during New York Fashion Week but I am so LATE in discovering it (better late than never darlings). I Will Blow You...with my Blow Dryer: Heidi and her weapon (and a fabulous gold jumpsuit) It features various different "web shows", including a snow boarding segment with actress/model Joy Bryant, Victoria's Secret Supermodel Marisa Miller's 'Travel Tips" and one of my favorites: Spiked Heel with Heidi Klum as "The Kluminator". It is a campy cartoon-like series by filmaker Douglas Keeve ("Unzipped") starring Heidi Klum--in a sexy gold jumpsuit (did Project Runway Season 5 Winner Christian Siriano design that? Or is it a Michael Kors? Why wasn't I called?)--saving the world with a blowdryer. Yep, a BLOWDRYER!!!! Of The Manor Born: Model Anastassia in a Ralph Lauren ad Another favorite of mine is High Heel Bootcamp, with runway instructor extraordinaire, model Anastassia Khozissova. Anastassia has been modeling for 10 years and has graced the Paris, New York and Milan runways of every top designer, including Ralph Lauren (she was his "muse" for a while), John Galliano for Dior (she looks unrecognizable in his Haute Couture creations) as well as Jean Paul Gaultier and many, many others. In one segment Simon Doonan, Barneys NY Creative Director (and DIVA), hosts as two very young ingenue models arrive in NY for a catwalk traning session with Miss Anastassia. Madama Butterfly: Model Anastassia in Christian Dior Haute Couture What does she do next? She makes them walk on a gymnast's balance beam. When they fall off, Miss I-Should-Have-Been-A-Romanian-Gymnast-Teacher Khozissova, shouts "Do you want to be a model? Then get back on!" I love it! Click HERE for all the Model Mayhem.
