Lidl has confirmed it will launch a second collection with supermodel Heidi Klum in time for Christmas. The news follows on from the success of Klum’s debut line for the German supermarket, which was officially launched at New York Fashion Week last month.
Featuring 40 pieces the second collection is called #LETSCELEBRATE and will combine warm winter colours with fabrics and finishes such as velvet, sequins, satin and faux fur. Prices start at £5.99 and key items will include a burgundy winter coat, a sequin blazer, a powder pink sequin dress and a faux fur stole.
“I wanted to create a simple, elegant fashion line that will make us shine over the festive season,” said Klum of the collection.
It will launch in all 670 Lidl UK stores in the first week of December and will be available in sizes 10-18, along with a selection of accessories and shoes. Globally it will be available in 10,000 Lidl stores in 28 countries.
When Klum’s first collection, called “Heidi & The City”, landed UK stores reported that it sold at a rate of 106 items a minute on its first day.
In fashion, some days you’re in, and some days you’re (check)out. Case in point: Heidi Klum is taking her fashion expertise to the supermarket checkout counter, launching a new clothing collection with German discount grocery store Lidl.
After creating Heidi Klum Intimates, along with Heidi by Heidi Klum, the star will be launching an entirely new collection with Lidl, called “Esmara by Heidi Klum: Heidi and the City,” which was created with low price points and high fashion in mind, in order to bring Klum’s aesthetic to Lidl’s U.S. stores, along with their 10,000 stores worldwide.
“I wanted to create fashion with a wow effect that is easy to combine and makes every woman look fantastic – and all at an unbeatable price,” Klum said in a statement about the collaboration, which will include everything from clothing to shoes and accessories, and will be priced from $6.99 to $29.99.
But the low price points don’t mean you’ll be getting low quality materials. They line will feature lace, sequins (see Klum’s sequin sweatshirt above), leopard print, and even a real leather jacket, which will be the most expensive piece in the collection at around $60.
And while both the brand and Heidi have kept the collaboration quiet ahead of the launch, they’ve already shared nondescript videos of their #LETSWOW campaign, in which Klum struts her stuff in her new pieces.
The collection will be revealed in it’s entirety during New York Fashion Week and on letswow.com on September 7th, and will be available for purchase on September 21st.
With Mother’s Day right around the corner, Heidi Klum is speaking out about an important cause that effects parents and their children.
The model, 43, has been working closely with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation for more than 15 years and is spreading the word in hopes that more people get involved.
“I’ve visited many of their events in New York and in Los Angeles,” says Klum. “It’s become bigger and bigger every year and I encourage people learn more about it.”
The foundation was founded by Glaser who contracted HIV in a blood transfusion in 1981 while giving birth to her daughter Ariel. After her daughter passed away, Glaser started the foundation in hopes of raising money for pediatric HIV/AIDS research.
Klum, who is mother to Helen, 12, Henry, 11, Johan, 10, and Lou, 7 says an easy way to get help is through the org’s annual A Time for Heroes festival.
This year’s event will take place on October 29 in L.A. Since its inception in 1989, the event has raised more than $35 million to support the foundation’s commitment to creating a world where no child has AIDS.
“It’s a big, big carnival for families. My kids love going in these gigantic bowling balls and they get tossed around. It’s really a benefit for children, with children,” says Klum. “It’s a fun and lively day.”
Vito Schnabel is well known as an art dealer on the rise — and a nude artwork he recently posted on his Instagram feed by famed artist Richard Prince has further set tongues wagging.
We’re told the Prince painting is of Schnabel’s longtime girlfriend, supermodel Heidi Klum.
In response to the Instagram image, she posted: “I recognize those boobies.”
A source said Schnabel has the 2015 Prince artwork in his house. The art scion said in his post, “Love this painting.”
Meanwhile, we hear that the post is also a hint at more revealing work coming from the former Victoria’s Secret stunner and “Project Runway” star.
She has partnered with famed British fashion and portrait photographer Rankin on a nude photo book, “Heidi Klum by Rankin,” which exclusively features images of her in the buff and will be released this summer.
The Prince artwork is styled after one of the Rankin photos that will appear in the book.
A source said Klum and Rankin have been working on the book for five years, and, “She’s never released nude photos like this, ever.”
Nothing says family affair quite like an afternoon getting slimed at a major awards show.
Friendly exes Heidi Klum and Seal are set to attend the 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards with their children, as well as Gwen Stefani, Blac Chyna, Kevin Hart, Nick Cannon, Mariah Carey and more, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.
Last year, Stefani’s boyfriend Blake Shelton hosted the show while she was in Tokyo for a concert. Her sons Apollo, 3, and Zuma, 8, however, were spotted in the audience having a blast cheering on the country singer.
Hart is nominated for four awards this year, which include Most Wanted Pet, Favorite Villain and Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie for his role as Snowball from The Secret Life of Pets. He also holds two nominations in the newly-added category BFFs (Best Friends Forever) for his friendship with Dwayne Johnson in Central Intelligence and Ice Cube in Ride Along 2.
“Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards is the biggest party for kids, and I’m so excited and honored to host this year’s show,” he said in a press release. “I have a lot of big surprises in store so bring on the slime!”
The 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards will air March 11 at 8 p.m. EST on Nickelodeon.
