Double-WERQ: Klum & Kors at amfAR Inspiration Gala

Posted on June 15, 2011

The Kluminator and the Duchess hit the red carpet for a good cause and we think they both look smashing. We’re going to work “smashing” into our daily vocabulary. Also, “supercilious,” because it sounds funny.

Anyway.

Heidi Klum at the 2nd Annual amfAR Inspiration Gala at The Museum of Modern Art in New York City in a Michael Kors dress.

It’s hilarious how she makes sure the world can still see her legs in a gown. Never change, Heidster.

Michael Kors Fall 2011 Collection/Model: Jourdan Dunn

It’s a beautiful dress and we’re so glad she didn’t wear the brown runway version. The brown is fine, but this blue is perfect for Heidi’s coloring. And Mr. Kors looks quite well turned-out. He always does when he has an event to attend, but we never really took the time to compliment him on it. In fact, we think Mr. Kors should consider ditching his normal uniform of black t-shirt, jeans, and sports coat, and start wearing suits more often. He’s become a household name and one of, if not THE most important American fashion designers. Plus, he always looks impeccable and significantly thinner when he wears one. Do it, Duchess. You’ve made a career as a latter day Bill Blass, so why not take another page from his book and start dressing impeccably all the time? There’s nothing wrong with the standard Kors uniform, but it’s gotten a little stale. Anyway,  they both look fabulous, cosmopolitan, and sophisticated (and orange); and not at all like two reality show judges.

Okay, yes. That last bit was just a little bitchy. WERQ it, ladies! You’re gorgeous fashion superstars!

    I hate the color, it cheapens the dress, making it look like a long version of mall clubwear. I would prefer this in a creamy white, with some fiercer shoes and big bangles or large, thin gold hoops.

    • scottyf

      That’s fine for the Duchess. And what would you do to make Heidi look a little better?

        Scottyf, you are my hero!  You ALWAYS make me laugh with your comments & you always have something interesting to say!  Thanks!
        BTW, for all the bitter haters out there, I think Heidi looks AUSGEZEICHNET!  So there! ;-)

        Scotty, do you know who Oscar Levant was? Because I think you’re his reincarnation. No one, pro or amateur raconteur, makes me laugh like you. Mwah!

          Somehow, I think there’s little doubt scottyf knows who Oscar Levant is, part of his posts’ charm is his ability to adorn them with cultural references.

        • scottyf

          Not to get too deep and emotional (though that’s what I’m feeling right now); when I was a kid, I used to get through piano lessons by pretending I was his character, Adam from An American In Paris during the orchestra sequence. I wouldn’t so much try to get his hands as I would his expression while he was playing. Even then I knew I was watching something special.

          It is a moving compliment. Thank you.

          Maybe if Levant had such incredible warmth selflessly given on a daily basis by such as you, Akumabunny, formerlyAnon and so many others, he wouldn’t have had such esteem issues personally.

          You’ve got me all verklempt.

          Tawlk amongst yourselves! I’ll give you a tawpic:

    Frau Seal opting for something not Short! Tight! and Shiny!…quelle suprise!  I don’t mind the color, although it is a bit Crayola.  I think the blue and orange together probably magnify the intensity of both.

    Amazing how the blue of her dress brings out the color of his eyes.

    I like the color a lot. The blue, not the orange. They both look fab.

  • Lauen newman

    I hate her dress. It looks trashy. Kind of like she went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond, found a neon blue sheet and put it on her body with lots of duck tape and strategic placing.

    • scottyf

      WOW. If she went to all of THAT trouble, then she REALLY deserves a WERQ!

        Actually, there is a brand of duct tape called Duck Tape.

          And, I admit to resenting that brand name because it furthers the confusion as to the name of one of my favorite Secret Weapons in the Fight Against Entropy.

    REALLY? She looks like she went out wrapped in an ugly bedsheet.

    While i agree that  blue is a better color on her, I really prefer the dress in the runway color & fabric. It looks so much more luxe on the runway than it does on Heidi. that particular blue is kind of cheap looking, and I’m sure the fabric is anything but.

    I’m on the fence between in and out on this one.

    Love the shoes!!!  So nice not to see those awful clodhoppers so many are still wearing.

    • sonictofu

      Agreed!  A nude shoe was the right choice for a change, and not a ridiculous platform pump.

    i hate to say this but i think yr duchess, there is –oh, do i hate to say this– better in his latter days than was the great bill blass in his. people now think of the blassport/reagan era as his heyday –it wasnt, he was AMAZING right up until then, then the times faltered for all of us– &, were i to compare the current MK w/ the 80s BB, i would give the nod to kors–he’s still making very nice, very wearable pieces–lots of flow & movement. almost as much as i wish he hadnt voted gretchen, i wish he hadnt succumbed to his bodyglove desire in his last collection–but there’s always another in a few more months.

  • Mary Pressler

    That blue dress says “looking for a sugar daddy on a Vh1 reality show.”  Short, tight and shiny would be a step UP in the class department!

    I really almost didn’t even recognize MK here. Agreed, he should go this route more often!

    I’m surprised to see so many negative comments – IMO she looks FIERCE! When I saw it earlier on some other site, my first thought was – WERQ.

    nah, Heidi looks bland and a bit cheap, and Kors seems to have stolen Snooki’s bronzer.

  • elzatelzabelz

    That dress looks like sex to me. You know, all rumply like the covers and half pulled around her. I’m not dissing it exactly b/c if I were Heidi Klum, I’d probably wear something that made me look like walking sex too.

  • Lisa

    I love the color on Heidi, but I’m not crazy about the dress itself.  Mr. Kors looks fantastic, though!

    I like the blue on Heidi but the dress otherwise feels like one of the losing entries in a PR bedsheet challenge.

  • MilaXX

    These pictures don’t really do them any justice but I saw them on one of the Entertainment shows this evening and they really looked gorgeous.

    Heidi looks gorgeous, but like Celia said, it kind of looks like standard issue mall club wear.

    I like the color on Heidi, but the design looks like she’s on her way to a college fraternity party toga party.

  • Tim Wong

    at least Heidi didn’t ask the duchess to make it 3 sizes smaller, cut it short and cover it with sequins….. our klumster have grown up….

    Well, I love the dress as is.  And think the jewelry is perfection with it.  Nicely done, Heidi!

    I think it looks like she wrapped a sheet around her and tucked it into her panties to make it stay.  Kudos to not being short and tight but otherwise, meh.

    I think Kors looks like Billy Joel.

    I like Ms. Samuel’s jewelry, especially that bracelet/cuff better than her usual, which I often think is out of scale with the clothing she wears..

    her hair is too severe and the color (on my screen) looks more aqua than pale blue (or whatever blue it’s supposed to be). I like the runway version better. Just a better color for Heidi.

  • http://twitter.com/1carmelita 1carmelita

    Do not love Heidi’s dress—I’m just not a fan of the drapey-style gown. That color really does flatter her, and she looks pretty great, as usual! I agree that MK looks great and should turn it out like this more often.

    I don’t care for Heidi’s dress one bit.  It’s too drapy in the torso.  Michael Kors is adorable and looks great!

  • http://joansbooks.blogspot.com/ lilithcat

    That dress is awful.  It looks as though she had nothing to wear, grabbed the sheet off her bed and draped it around herself.   And the color is vile.

    I had assumed that this was a Donna Karan dress. it looks like the post yoga Karan garments. Given how Kors re-cyckles looks from American sprtswear past…it makes sense

    I like the runway version better. The neckline is more closed so there’s less boobage, which is nice. And I love the color. The blue is a nice color on Heidi though. Kors looks fantastic and should definitely wear suits more often.
