“I just don’t look at it, honestly,” Leni continued. “If I don’t look at it, I don’t have to pay any attention to it, so I just don’t know what is there.” "I had an amazing day, an amazing shoot, it's out, I love it," the emerging style sensation summarized. Leni also expressed gratitude for the opportunity to work with her supermodel mother, 49. “I love her. She’s an inspiration. Just the advice she gives me, the way she works, everything about her, I can go on and on,” Leni told reporters at the starry event. “I love shooting with her.”


Howard Stern, an American radio personality, said on his SiriusXM show that the Klums' Intimissimi advertisement was improper. “I looked at it and I thought, ‘This is so f—king’ out of line. It is so inappropriate. But you can’t stop looking at it.” He added, “It looks like a guy’s [personal] fantasy. They’re kissing and they’re holding each other. And they’re frolicking.”

Other internet users agreed with Stern’s point, saying the project felt “icky.” one user commented, "Sorry but this is weird." another posted, "I would be so dang embarrassed if Heidi Klum was my mother. A mother who refuses to grow up gracefully, teaching her offspring to do the same. I'd end up running away from home and never look back. Despicable." A third commented, "the photo is weird and the caption makes it weirder lol." While there were a number of negative comments, some defended the mother-daughter duo as well. "Beautiful ladies! Nothing disturbing here! The only disturbances are people that think this is disturbing pic😍👏," a user commented. "So AWESOME!!!! Love that your mom supports you and that you both see modeling for the art form it is instead of the sexified weirdness that everyone else makes it. People wouldnt be freaking out if you were both in bikinis so why is this weird at all. Good for you 🔥🔥🔥🔥," another commented. A third wrote, "Nothing wrong with this. If they were in Bikini’s no one would complain."
