Because I jumped at the chance to sit down and talk to THE supermodel, Ms. Heidi Klum, who really needs no introduction…
A few weeks back Perfectil invited me to interview my favorite supermodel ever, Heidi Klum. To say I was excited is an understatement and, side note, I was legit floored by how thoughtful Heidi was during our interview. At this point I’ve talked to a LOT of celebs and there is a distinct difference between some of them and Heidi; her answers were amazing and I actually had to cut a LOT out just because I try to always keep this series to just three questions 🙂 Here’s what she had to say about her fave beauty products, favorite Project Runway moments and what advice she’d give her 22-year-old self…
What are your top three beauty products and why?
I love mascara (not waterproof) because I think we talk with our eyes and not our mouths. If I had to pick one thing I’d pick mascara; I like L’Oreal Voluminous because it’s easy and works well. I also love Johnson & Johnson Baby Shampoo– I use it for my face wash every night and every morning. I believe what’s good for children is good for us, and because I wear so much makeup for TV I need to go really close to the eye and it’s really hard to get all that makeup off. I can really go super close to the eye to get everything off (with this baby shampoo). I also really like Iles Formula for hair – she’s a friend of mine and she really wants to make a difference for our hair.
What were some of your favorite moments and memories from Project Runway?
It was very rock and roll back then. I had so many amazing moments and when I think about Austin Scarlett, he really set the tone of what we wanted the show to be about – amazing creativity and making something out of nothing. I did love the very first season because of the amazing designers that we had. I also loved our very last season because we had models of all sizes, which we had never had before and I thought was very important for the industry. Christian Siriano (another Project Runway alum) was one of the front runners for that and he should really get more credit for what he did, designing for every woman.
What advice would you give your 22-year-old self?
Do everything the same. I don’t have regrets. A lot of things didn’t always go well and that made me a stronger person today. You learn from your mistakes. I’m worried that if I changed anything I wouldn’t be here, where I am today. I don’t want anything to change and I’m happy with how everything went.
