As she mentored an entourage of pencil-thin models at a trendy West Hollywood party Thursday night, Heidi Klum took aim at critics of Jessica Simpson's new, curvier look.

"I think everyone should be the way they feel comfortable," Klum told PEOPLE at the M+B Gallery, at a party featuring Macallan scotch and the photographer Rankin.

Klum, who was also taping an episode of Germany's Next Top Model, added, "there are always people who are quick to offer an opinion and when you are in the public eye, people will always talk about you and put their opinions on you. That's what you get when you're in the public eye. But people need to be happy with the way they are."
