LOS ANGELES — Maternity style tips and parenting advice were served alongside champagne and canapés at a party Thursday night hosted by Michael Kors and a very pregnant Heidi Klum at the designer’s store on Rodeo Drive.
“Heidi’s a fearless dresser,” said Kors of his “Project Runway” co-star, who was decked out in a short, kicky flapper dress that made good use of her gams (insured by Lloyds of London for $2.2 million). “She’s like, ‘I’ll do the thigh-high boots pregnant.’ She wears the same kind of stuff she did before. I think women are sexier when they’re pregnant, so why not go for it?”
However radiant, Klum wouldn’t reveal a due date and admitted to laying low, given her upcoming birth. “I have not really been out much and haven’t been going to parties.” This will be Klum’s first child with husband Seal.
Going out hasn’t been much on the mind of fellow mom Debra Messing, either, who instead has been busy weaning her 16-month-old son. “‘Project Runway’ was my guilty pleasure while my son was napping or nursing,” said Messing, dressed in a jungle-print Michael Kors sundress. No wonder, since Messing also admitted: “I’m a fashion magazine junkie and I’ll get in bed with my Vogue or W and rip up pages and make notes to give to my stylist, and say, ‘These are the designers I love.'”
