According to WWD, Gisele was chosen to represent the brand because of her "natural beauty and modern femininity." After initial filming last week, the model will film further shots in New York City.

Baz is also no stranger to directing adverts for Chanel No. 5 as he previously helmed a 2004 campaign for the fragrance featuring Nicole Kidman. Victoria's Secret beauty Gisele, who has two children - Benjamin, four, and 17-month-old Vivian - with her husband, NFL star Tom Brady, may be an internationally famous model, but she's not afraid to muck in and clean out the chicken run at her home in Los Angeles. "I have a beautiful garden where I raise chickens. We have very little waste because the chickens eat all of the vegetable scraps, and anything they won't eat, I put in my compost pile with the chicken poo," she explained.

Heidi Klum Having Mid-Life Crisis?

Heidi KlumHeidi Klum is reportedly going through a "mid-life crisis."

The 40-year-old model is reportedly losing some of her close friends as they're struggling to deal with her new-found love of partying and wild behavior. "Heidi's drinking and outspoken rude behavior is winning her no friends these days. She's going through a bad midlife crisis that makes her almost impossible to deal with. Heidi spent most of last year partying and she needs to shape up or face consequences," a source said.

Her friends are reportedly worried that she's not spending enough time with her children, Leni, nine, Henry, eight, Johan, seven, and Lou, four, because she's too busy with her new toyboy boyfriend Vito Schnabel, 27, whom she began dating in February, and trying to boost her career. "Since Vito came on the scene, her kids have spent a lot more time with their nannies! More trouble is most certainly ahead for Heidi in 2014 as she is not nearly the hot in-demand star she was six years ago and it's really hit her hard," the source explained.

Claudia Schiffer Was Never a Party Girl

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Models,

Claudia SchifferClaudia Schiffer didn't party during the 90s when she found fame.

The 43-year-old model insists she was "innocent" and didn't really embrace the rock 'n' roll lifestyle like many other models did, and instead she chose to go home after fashion shows. "I didn't really go to the parties - I'd go home after the shows. A lot of bad things can happen at fashion parties, but I wasn't aware of that at the time. I was so innocent. I wasn't aware that people were taking drugs around me and I was never offered anything. And I didn't like the taste of cigarettes or alcohol," she told the UK's Marie Claire.

Although she's doesn't regularly talk to many models from her era, catwalk stars such as Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen and Nadja Auermann, when they do reconnect they can just pick their relationship up from where they left it.

Claudia - who is married to director Matthew Vaughn, with whom she has three children, son Caspar, 10, daughter Clementine, nine, and daughter Cosima, three - added, "Very occasionally. We're still in contact via e-mail. I might be in LA and e-mail Cindy or see Eva in London. It's very sporadic, but when I see them I can still talk to them and pick up where we left off. That's the kind of bond that I don't think will ever break. Even though there was a large amount of competition, there was also a camaraderie and we knew that we were part of that club that was very special."

Martin Kristen and Heidi KlumHeidi Klum has split from Martin Kirsten.

Heidi - who has Lou, four, Henry, eight and Johan, seven from her marriage to Seal and Leni, nine, from her relationship with Flavio Briatore - has also cut professional ties with Martin, 41. When the couple initially got together, Heidi said of Martin, "He's been helping me for four years now, and he takes wonderful care of the kids. He plays with them, he protects them. I trust him." He was also on hand when to help saved Henry and two nannies from a riptide in Hawaii which could have drowned them in early 2013.


Items Du Jour: SJP Talks Shoes, Gisele’s Hair Secret, More Miu Miu S/S ‘14

Hayden Panettiere in Tom Ford+ Just as Christian Louboutins are known for their red heels, Sarah Jessica Parker is setting her own shoe trademark: grosgrain ribbons stitched to the back of the heels. The Sex and the City actress - who made Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo household names - talks freely about the inspiration and production of her own shoe collection (which Blahnik had a hand in designing himself!).

+ Despite being the latest Pantene Pro-V spokesmodel, Gisele Bundchen admits that her hair is constantly brushed by other people in her career that she doesn't even own a hairbrush. So, ladies: brushes are so passé these days.

+ While here at ChicDish we released the previews of Miu Miu's Spring/Summer 2014 campaign - which features Elizabeth Olsen, Elle Fanning, and Lupita Nyong'o - the label put out more ads featuring the actresses (as well as some featuring Dark Shadows actress Bella Heathcote). Check them out here!

Items Du Jour: Britney Goes Platinum, Tyra’s War on “Plus-Size” Term

Kim Kardashian+ The Kardashian trio unveiled their latest clothing collection, which they launched in collaboration with British retailer Lipsy. Unsurprisingly, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe model off their floral, curve-hugging dresses in the adverts for the line (perhaps it's the only way they'd be able to sell it?). Major kudos that they're not of the typical sequined and glittery New Year's Eve dress fare, but at the same time, I can't imagine women flocking to the stores (or in Americans' cases, online store) for a summery frock when they're looking for something festive.

+ Britney Spears surprised fans with a Twitter photo showcasing her new hair color: platinum blonde. Love it or leave it?

+ Tyra Banks seems to have joined Jennifer Lawrence in the war against negative body image words, claiming that she refuses to utter "plus-size," instead opting for "fiercely real." Not sure how quickly the latter will catch on, but it's a start!

Heidi Klum Quits Lingerie Modeling

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Fashion Shows, Models, News,

Heidi KlumHeidi 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.
