Supermodel Elle MacPherson blasts rival Heidi Klum for stealing her nickname “The Body” for a new bra advert. Elle, 43, has been described as “The Body” since 1986, and is upset that Heidi, 33, has been using that nickname for a Victoria’s Secret commercial. A spokeswoman for Elle’s underwear company, said: “We saw that and were like ‘oh God’ We were initially flabbergasted. We have numerous press clippings referring to Elle as The Body. In terms of public record, that name belongs to Elle.” Elle is particularly annoyed as she uses the term on products ranging from skin care and lingerie to fitness DVDs. This is so weird how teen queens fight over boyfriends and models fight over nicknames. We have to admit, looking at these latest pictures of Elle, she definitely still has “the body” going for her.
Meanwhile Heidi has fired back by saying : “The Body was one of my nicknames when I started work with Victoria’s Secret. It’s a huge honor to have a bra named after my nickname.” Sounds like a catfight coming soon on the catwalk.
Let the body wars begin!
