Heidi Klum, Elle Macpherson Tangle over 'The Body'

by at . Comments

Wait, whose body is fortunate enough to be in the center of a controversy involving two of the world's most gorgeous super models?

No one's (although consider this an application for the position from The Gossip).

Instead, Heidi Klum and Elle Macpherson are battling over the simple use of the moniker, "The Body." Klum has bestowed it upon herself in a new ad campaign for Victoria's Secret â€" but Macpherson is takining exception.

Could a cat fight soon break out? Seriously, please, could it?!?

A rep for the 42-year-old Macpherson said Elle was "flabbergasted" at Heidi's chutzpah, especially because Elle was ordained "The Body" by none other than Time magazine (on its cover) and numerous other publications, including Harper's Bazaar, Vogue and Sports Illustrated.

Oddly, Jesse Ventura had no beef with the proclamation of either beauty.

In a TV spot for a bra also called "The Body," however, Klum purrs, "They call me The Body â€" and now I have a bra named after me."

The 33-year-old, 5-foot-9, stacked, breathtaking mother of two (and soon to be three) clearly isn't backing down from the title. Still, Macpherson has claimed a business stake in the nickname, starting her own skin care line called "Elle Macpherson The Body," along with a lingerie brand and a fitness video called "The Body Workout."

We say they're both The Bodies! Although Nick Lachey isn't too far behind.

Heidi Klum Quotes

Heidi Klum [on her marriage proposal]: [Seal] took me by helicopter. He had an igloo built there, and they’d brought up everything: a bed with sheets inside the igloo, rose petals everywhere, candles. Very, very romantic! There was food and champagne, and then the helicopter left. It was a little scary, too, because you’re so cut off from the world. No trees, nothing - it was hard-core. But I was ecstatic. I loved it. It was wonderful.

I have a normal life and I have this glamorous life, but to me it's two different things. It's not like I'm this glamour diva who hands everything over and I just sit on my throne at home.
