Oh, Heidi. You’re just so very … Heidi.

These kinds of shoots are so weird. A dozen photographers wait around a hotel pool for an hour-and-a-half until she shows up, barely acknowledges them, picks up her prop, and then turns on the mega-watt smile like she just noticed they were there and is thrilled to see them. Then she quickly cycles through her repertoire of poses, thanks them, and totters off, surrounded by handlers.

The dress? Well, it’s certainly a Heidi dress. We’ll give her credit for this: she can take clothes that would look a little tacky on anyone else and make them look … not chic so much, but pleasing and eye-catching. Remember Marisa Tomei yesterday and her unfortunate blacksmith dress? Remember how we said the shoes looked a little cheap? Heidi’s wearing the same pair and somehow they look fine on her. Granted, they’re a better match for a dress like this than Marisa’s more out-there getup, but something about Heidi’s tenure at Victoria’s Secret University has trained her well to work these kinds of looks. And if this all sounds like a bunch of back-handed compliments, well…yeah. But she really does look great.
