Iman Doesn't ‘Belittle’ Heidi Klum, But She Does Dis Her

Since the Naomi CampbellTyra Banks drama died down, we've been jonesing for another model catfight outside the bubble of America's Next Top Model. It looks like Iman may spark one. She hosts Project Runway Canada and girl, she knows she's more qualified for the job than Heidi Klum.

"Definitely Heidi and I come from two different places," Iman tells the World Entertainment News Network. "I'm not belittling Heidi Klum, but I have been in fashion much more than she has. Not to toot my own horn, but I have been one of the best runway girls."


She adds: "I know clothes, and I know about working hand in hand with designers — I mean, I've worked with Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, John Galliano. Yves St. Laurent — he created a whole collection for me. Tom Ford, Valentino. Versace. Jean Paul Gaultier. Thierry Mugler … I could go on and on."

Oh, snap! But it's true. When we bumped into Klum at a party for the Marc Jacobs documentary the day before Fashion Week, we asked her if she'd ever return to the runway. She quickly corrected us and said if she walked, it wouldn't be a "return." "I'm not really a runway model," she told us. It's not often we're jealous of Canada, but in this context we can't help but look at Klum and feel a bit green.
