A cut above the rest!

Heidi Klum sizzles on the cover of Us Weekly's The Body Issue (on newsstands now) in a strappy one-piece. The custom-cut American Apparel bodysuit was created by stylist Adam Saaks on set at the L.A. shoot, with just a pair of scissors. Watch the video to watch him in action—and Klum work it!

"Not everyone wants to fit into a pair of skinny jeans," Klum, 40, told Us at the shoot. "Some women feel sexier when they have more meat on their bones. Their guy likes it more or they like it more. Me, I like it when I'm more fit. I feel very comfortable with the way I am right now."

As for her diet, Klum keeps it clean. "I'm pretty good about not eating too many carbs. I love vegetables," she said.

One food on her "do not eat" list: Bagels. "I don't eat bagels—no way!" she tells Us. "A bagel is basically a cardboard box…Usually I'll have a smoothie in the morning."
