Heidi Klum has given up lingerie modeling.
The 40-year-old supermodel says she would no longer feel "comfortable" on a catwalk wearing only a bra and briefs: "I wouldn't model with my underwear down the runway anymore. I think I would find it a little uncomfortable, maybe. I still do photoshoots for [magazine] covers and different things or advertising stuff."
The mother of four - who split from her husband, singer Seal, in 2012 and his now in a relationship with her former bodyguard Martin Kristen - also said she is happy to get older and embrace the lines of age rather than have surgery. "I wouldn't say that I love [my crow's feet], but that's just the way it happens, right? We get wrinkles from smiling. I've never had any [cosmetic procedures]. I've been too scared, to be honest with you. I'm scared that all of a sudden you're changing too much, your face starts changing, I don't know. I would have a hard time looking in the mirror and seeing something that I'm not used to seeing. I'd be afraid," she said.
Taylor Swift "didn't fit in" on the Victoria's Secret catwalk, according to model Jessica Hart.
The 23-year-old singer performed at the annual fashion show in New York on Wednesday, but Australian lingerie model Jessica wasn't impressed by her on the runway. When asked if the leggy "I Knew You Were Trouble" star could pull it off as a Victoria's Secret model, Jessica replied bluntly, "No." Speaking to Women's Wear Daily at the after show party, she said, "I think, you know what, God bless her heart. I think she's great. But I don't know, to me, she didn't fit. I don't know if I should say that. I think what you find is that for a lot of us, we've been working for 14, 15 years, what it takes to make it here comes from experience and confidence and knowing how to be confident with yourself. I think it comes with age. It's definitely the benchmark of all jobs."
The mother of one and currently estranged wife of Orlando Bloom has been accused of heavily Photoshopping images of herself for Instagram. Although she couldn't appear in Wednesday's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, she posted a photo of herself (full photos seen after the jump) alongside models Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio from last year's show with a caption reading, "Sending love and best wishes to the #vsangels from Japan xxx." Having seen the original image taken and published by Vogue, fans were quick to point out that Kerr's waist and face are considerably thinner in the version she posted.

Cara Delevigne dressed as a sexy soccer player at the Victoria Secret's fashion show on Wednesday.
The 21-year-old model donned a naughty kit-inspired lingerie set as she walked down the catwalk in high-waisted shorts, a tucked in open-button shirt and a bright blue bra. Cara sported ankle-boot stilettos with knee-high socks rolled down, while she clutched a ball emblazoned with the Victoria's Secret initials.
Taylor Swift kicked off the show held in New York City with her hit "I Knew You Were Trouble," while wearing a Union Jack print mini-dress accompanied with a matching train and top hat, which were splattered with paint. Fall Out Boy, indie band A Great Big World and UK-based girl group Neon Jungle also took to the stage to perform a few of their own tracks during the British section of the show.
Lily Aldridge, Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Donaldson, Erin Heatherton and Candice Swanepoel also graced the catwalk in lingerie, which tied in with the themes of Snow Angels, Shipwrecked, Parisian Nights, Pink Network and Birds of Paradise.
+ Realizing that there is actually a profit in larger-sized clothing now that their business is failing, Abercrombie & Fitch - who raised controversy this year over refusing to sell larger sizes for women - has decided to eat their words and sell larger sizes to "compete against rivals."
+ Jennifer Lawrence - who joins Pamela Anderson and Kristin Chenoweth in getting pixie cuts this month - says that she cut her hair short because "it just couldn't get any uglier."

UPDATE: Kate Upton claims that Victoria's Secret used this 2011 image of her without her permission.
Is Kate Upton on her way to earning a pair of Victoria's Secret angel wings?
A leaked page from the upcoming lingerie giant's catalog reveals that the 20 year-old model - who has graced the covers of Vogue and Sports Illustrated - has been recruited to sell their famous undergarments.
Accepting the gig comes as a little bit of shock, considering that the casting director for the company's televised runway show, Sophia Neophitou, had previously stated that she would never have Upton on her catwalk: "She is too obvious. She’s like a page three girl. She’s like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and the kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy."
Is this catalog gig a step towards forgiving Ms. Neophitou now that she has garnered clout in the fashion community (keep in mind that Anna Wintour picked her over current fashion darling and newly-appointed VS Angel Karlie Kloss)? I guess we'll just have to see if her famous curves appear in next year's extravagant runway show.

Miranda Kerr has allegedly been dropped as a Victoria's Secret Angel because of her "difficult reputation."
The Australian supermodel, who is married to British actor Orlando Bloom with whom she shares two-year-old son Flynn, has been let go as one of the main faces of the lingerie brand after her $1 million, three year-contract "was not renewed."
A source told UsMagazine.com that the 29-year-old beauty "has a difficult reputation" and suggested it was the main reason she will no longer walk the company's star-studded annual catwalk show wearing a prestigious pair of angel's wings, an honor reserved for just a handful of the brand's top faces.
Another source indicated the brunette model is "not a big seller for VS," compared to its other Angels like Alessandra Ambrosio, 31, Candice Swanepoel, 24, and Adriana Lima, 31.
+ Although Kristen Stewart seems to favor t-shirts and sneakers when not on a publicity tour, but she cleans up quite well when she is! Although she doesn't seem too much of a Victoria Beckham fan, Stewart looked great in an orange number from the popstar-turned-designer's eponymous line at an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael.
+ EMA host Heidi Klum may have worn Versace the whole night of the event, but not all of them seem to be the best of fashion choices. The same goes for the rest of the stars that evening - Lana Del Rey wore the most plainest black dress while Kim Kardashian looked like she was wearing a train of black trash bags.
+ Want a pair of heels you might have seen on display at the Victoria's Secret fashion show? Unfortunately, designer Nicholas Kirkwood says he's not selling them - unless you want to special order some through his stores, of course. He also seems to hint at the possibility of collaborating with the lingerie giant in the future.
Toni Garrn has become the newest Victoria's Secret angel. The 19-year-old beauty has only previously walked one runway show for the brand - famous for its extravagant underwear - but has now been confirmed as signing a new contract.
Victoria's Secret has long been known for picking the most glamorous and beautiful women to take part in its extravagant shows, with Miranda Kerr - who was voted the Most Beautiful Person of 2012 earlier this year - among those famed for their connection with the brand.
Despite the glamorous surroundings, Miranda - who has 15-month-old son Flynn with Orlando Bloom - claims she is keener on motherhood and loves spending time with her child: "I want to spend as much time with Flynn as I can, and I'd want to put a lot of energy into him. He's the most beautiful thing, the best thing that's ever happened to me. It's wonderful. I'd say what makes me happy is having this little man. I'm the happiest when I'm surrounded by those I love and we are in a natural environment. It's the best thing I've ever done. Becoming a mother puts everything into perspective. You become more comfortable in your own skin."
