Ridding herself of the various L.A. mansions she once shared with ex-husband Seal, supermodel and Project Runway host Heidi Klum recently shelled out $9.875M for some brand new new digs in Bel Air, Calif. Though The Real Estalker calls the new place—custom built by Ed Weinberger, who produced such works as The Cosby Show—a "downsize," the slightly smaller stature of the 11,000-square-foot, six-bedroom manse is hardly worth losing sleep over. More vexing is the seriously seriously odd design choices at play in the stiff Georgian-style home. Indeed, based on these listing photos, the brick-and-stone pile is a mess of chintzy gold light fixtures, jarring pastel walls, and sparse, yet formal, staging. No doubt the sartorially gifted Klum will work her design magic, but until then, do have a look at the as-is listing photos.
