Heidi Klum posed for the May issue of Allure, which isn’t that unusual except that in some of the shots the supermodel-cum-reality TV show host is utterly in the buff. She delivered some bon mots, not the least of which was explaining how her gay friends helped her learn how to give “blowies.”

Here are our favorite shots, and a little commentary on some  outtakes from her telling interview.
