SEETHING supermodel Elle "The Body" Macpherson has accused fellow catwalk queen Heidi Klum of nicking her nickname.
Elle, 43, has been known as The Body for years.
But now Heidi has claimed the name for herself as she promotes the new Body bra by Victoria's Secret.
In an ad for the bra, the German stunner proclaims: "They call me The Body and now I have a bra named after me.
"It's a big honour having a bra named after my nickname. People know me as The Body in the business."
Heidi, 33, claims she was first called The Body when she started working with Victoria's Secret seven years ago.
But she also used to be known as The Body Two, out of respect for Elle. And the Aussie's camp are far from amused at her bid to promote herself to number one.

Elle's spokeswoman, Melissa Edwards, said: "We saw that and we were like, 'Oh my God.' We were initially flabbergasted.
"We have numerous press clippings in the office referring to Elle as The Body. Everything from Harper's Bazaar to Vogue to the recent Sports Illustrated calls her that.
"In terms of public record, that name belongs to Elle."
Elle was given her nickname 20 years ago in a magazine cover story. She promotes a skin-care range called ElleMacpherson The Body and has made a fitness video called The Body Workout.
