Heidi Klum's children gave her the inspiration for her new clothing line. The 39-year-old supermodel has created an exclusive children's collection for Babies 'R' Us called Truly Scrumptious, and says her designs were influenced by her own children, Johan, Leni, Henry and Lou. Heidi told The Wall Street Journal: ''I just think about what they love. I think about what they see in the world and what kind of stops their tracks. ''My kids love monsters. They love dinosaurs. They love robots.'' The Project Runway host also has a maternity line and an active wear collection to her name, but plans to expand her clothing range in the future and wants to enlist the services of her five-year-old son. She explained: ''For the future, I'm going to have my son Johan do some of the monster designs. He's all into drawing monsters. Some of those I've saved already and when we do the next round of T-shirts for boys I want to do some of the prints with his designs.'' The former Victoria's Secret Angel is pleased her love of fashion has rubbed off on her children and thinks there is nothing wrong with exposing them to the fashion world. Heidi's collection also includes cuddly toys, prams and furniture and will be available from September 15.

Solange Knowles unleashes her inner hipster
Beyoncé's little sister Solange Knowles has proved the perfect fit for Madewell. Images from the 26-year-old's first major contract with a fashion label have been released, showing the photogenic singer-songwriter in a series of rainbow-colored looks. Madewell, which is J Crew's sister store, first released behind-the-scenes footage from the shoot earlier this month which offered a hint at the wide range of polka dots, stripes and prints from its Fall 2012 collection. The mother-of-one follows in the footsteps of model Dree Hemingway, the great granddaughter of Ernest Hemmingway, as well as Alexa Chung, in becoming a face of the brand, though Chung went so far as to design her own clothing collections for the super trendy label. The stunning star is seen in the brand's signature boyfriend jeans that have been rolled at the ankle in two images. A pair featuring distressed denim has been paired with a sporty grey cardigan and a light geometric print shirt.
Another pair of jeans has been paired with a light blue blouse and canary yellow pumps as the superstar model is photographed slouched on the floor.
