We'd even say the supermogul looks better than ever in the magazine — especially with her clothes auf!
But once the clothes were back on, Heidi opened up to the mag about modeling, plastic surgery and of her divorce.
On her modeling days before making it big as a Victoria's Secret Angel:
"I never did fashion shows—not in Paris or Berlin or even in New York City. I tried, but no one would book me."
On not being a stereotypical model:
"I was too curvy and too busty and a little too short. And I was a little bit self-conscious about it. But I was by no means heavy, I just—well, you have hips and boobs, and that's it. Haute couture, you don't really see girls with big boobs. And I always wanted first to be a model. So I had to say, 'OK, you're going to find other things to do in this industry, or it's maybe not my industry."
On the importance of gay men in her life:
"They are like this kaleidoscope of interesting thoughts and opinions. They teach you so many things about men that are useful."
On getting plastic surgery:
"Ask me again when I'm 65, but…I'm proud to be able to say, in this day and age, I haven't done anything. Everyone has a view of what's pretty and what's not pretty, and [surgery] just doesn't look pretty to me. Especially when I see it on really young girls. I don't want to name names, but it's like, Wow, I remember you five years ago, looking to me so beautiful, and now it's like… who is this person? And I know girls half my age who do it. What are they gonna do at 40 or 50, when the s-h-i-t really hits the fan?"
On her marriage to Seal:
"You know, I wouldn't change anything. If I had to go back in time and say, 'I should have changed this or that…' No. I don't resent anything that ever happened. Things just turn out the way they turn out…. I'm still in the eye of the storm now, and it's all a little bit crazy. But sometimes you have to be apart in order to figure it out."
We love how Heidi keeps it real in all her interviews. Just another reason why she's so fabulous!
