Heidi Klum stuns in NYC just after arriving for 'America's Got Talent' auditions.


Heidi Klum is a new judge on America’s Got Talent, and she’s making sure people are aware of her presence!

While traveling from city to city for show auditions, the supermodel had a wardrobe mishap that left her smelling like cheese on set— a pungent scent that her fellow judge, Howard Stern, noticed immediately.  

After dropping off her wardrobe— the same outfit she had to wear for three days of filming— at a dry cleaner in New Orleans, Heidi, 39, got back her frock and noticed there was something different about it.

“I got it back the next day, and it was damp, in a plastic bag. I smelled like cheese the whole day!” she said of her stinky style. “Howard is like, ‘What is that smell?’ And, I’m like, ‘It’s me! It’s the dress! It’s cheese!’ It was awful.”

Thankfully, Heidi learned her lesson by the time the AGT judges made their way to Texas.

“The next time, in San Antonio, I was like, I’m just not going to do that again,” she says laughing. “So then, it was like, me. Not the cheese. I don’t know. New York City might be a little better.”

Thankfully, viewers can't smell her on TV— We do, however, know enthusiasm when we see it.

"America's Got some serious Talent!" she recently admitted. "I'm really excited to join the panel of AGT to see it all -- from the ridiculous to the fantastic! I love the surprise element of the show and not knowing what we'll see next and who will wow us. I'm also looking forward to spending time with my fellow judges - Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and Mel B!
