      I think Heidi deserves the “of course” now.

      • R.A.

        Took the words out of my mouth!

        I honestly scrolled down JUST to see if anyone had said this.

        That, and ‘the belt needs to go’. Maybe another one? This one doesn’t go well together with the dress.

    • Anathema_Device

      That thing is seizure inducing. As is the dress. (I kid. The Kluminator amuses me to no end.)

    • imperfectlaura

      There are so many things that could bug me about this look, and for some reason it’s the dolman sleeve.

      • Celandine1

        The ONE dolman sleeve!

        • Jacqueline Wessel

          Yeah, that is strange.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=49702581 Susan Bullard Mayer

      Disco disco!

    • alyce1213

      That’s what she wears for a morning tv show? Not only too short, partially too tight, and shiny, but totally inappropriate.
      She really has awful taste and judgment.

      • Little_Olive

        Really. We could have been assessing the dress for an evening event, hovering around whether it’s short but not so revealing on the top. This is just WRONG.

        I hate it when people, in all situations, are not dressed according to the venue/temperature/season/hour of the day/nature of the event.

      • Sunraya

        I want to see her try to sit down in this!

        • Little_Olive

          Oh, she doesn’t need to try, she’ll go ahead and do it as if she was in Oshkosh overalls.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=506473106 Mori Clark

      let me just say that i thought it said that she was in Talbot’s and i got really confused. but yeah apparently heidi klum has legs, who knew

    • Trisha26

      Shiny, short & tight – that’s our Heidi! At least her makeup looks fresh and youthful for a change.

    • leilah

      So … does she just have her assistant call up the designer and say, “you know that Spring-speckled gown from your Fall ’12 collection? Heide would like the top half of it without the floral collar …. “?

      To second quotes, but from Most Popular Girls in School:

      “You look like a tampon that was dipped in Skittles and vomit.”

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1401197785 Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

        Thank you for quoting MPGIS. You made my day!

    • dorothea_brooke

      So she took something interesting and made it boring. Brava!

    • schadenfreudelicious

      did she just hack the bottom off in the cab on the way over??

    • rainwood1

      Nothing screams good morning like short and shiny!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Inês-Martins/100000345906318 Inês Martins


    • Celandine1

      Has anyone seen her Carl’s Jr commercial? It’s so cringe inducing. I change the channel when it is on. The first time I saw it I actually said out loud to the TV “Oh Heidi NO!”

      • MilaXX

        ALL the Carl’s Jr commercials are gross to me. Who eats that stuff?

        • H2olovngrl

          Whoever their decision makers are regarding their ad campaigns should be fired. They are all terrible. I can feel my intelligence being sucked away every time I see some idiot revoltingly eating a sloppy, dripping burger in one of their commercials.

      • H2olovngrl

        I scrolled down to see if someone brought this up. That Mrs. Robinson/The Graduate commercial is awful! Remember the Mad Men episode where they used an Ann Margaret look alike for a Patio Cola ad? And they couldn’t figure out why it didn’t work? Then Roger says, “Because it’s not Ann Margaret”. That is how this commercial feels to me. That is not Dustin Hoffman, and you, madame, are NO Anne Bancroft!

    • newtonGOTbeaned

      Poor dress. She did that to Emilio’s pretty dress, too. She should have felt bad for ruining the guy’s moment.

    • http://twitter.com/AnniNoone AnniNoone

      She’s moved from “short, shiny, and tight” to “short, shiny, and tight…pick two.” That’s progress, right? I actually think she looks good here, and I’m not usually a fan of her aesthetic.

    • MilaXX

      Considering it’s Heidi, this isn’t that bad.

      • MissAmynae

        helps that her face and hair look fantastic here. I actually don’t hate it- she actually picked legs or boobs this time.

        • Little_Olive

          I thought that. Until I remembered it is for a morning show.

    • ersmom

      To quote Meatloaf : Two out of three ain’t bad.

      Short and shiny…

    • http://www.facebook.com/aboutelle Ashleigh Boutelle

      WOW. 1982 called and wants their…no they don’t. Who am I kidding.
      Can we still call that a Talbot Runhof dress?
      and….I have to share my email address to comment on your blog now?? boo

    • stacey avelar

      Silver lining: at least the dress was already megafugly before she changed it up, not like she ruined a masterpiece.

      • makeityourself

        Another plus — she’s wearing a bra. I’m sure The Today Show made their wishes clear on that.

        On one hand, hair and makeup are great. On the other hand, who does a bright red mani/pedi with a pastel dress?

    • Wendi126

      At least it’s just legs and not legs and tits or just tits. Tits…sounds like a snack..

    • BrooklynBomber

      What a pretty girl. Who is she?

      • H2olovngrl

        Oh sarcasm, how we have missed you.

    • capybara_cafe

      You know, she always tells contestants off for making stuff this short. Too bad she never takes her own advice. Given who we’re looking at here though, it’s a lot better than what she normally brings out.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      Honestly, my only real objection are the sleeves.
      It’s longer than SHE usually wears, her tits are housed and I love a good sparkle.

    • Lilly

      Why, honey… just WHY

    • rkdgal

      Heidi’s mental checklist: 1. Tight? Check. 2. Shiny? Double Check. 3. Short? Shit! (grabs scissors and hacks off bottom) Check!

      • drdarke

        She cut the bottom of that dress herself, didn’t she?

        I could swear I still see the threads hanging off the bottom….

    • E. D.

      Wow, she’s unusually covered up.

      scrolls down

      Never mind.

      The camera guys must hate that walking seizure of an outfit.

    • Jackie4g

      I don’t understand what it is she’s trying to prove? She’s a strikingly beautiful woman, she’s made a financial success, she’s a good Mommy, she’s been sucessful in a ton of endeavors, it goes without saying lots of fellows are interested, why has she got to look so damn desperate?

      • alyce1213

        No taste. Plain and simple.

      • Whever

        Maybe it’s not about anyone’s response? Maybe she just likes dressing that way. If so, more power to her.

    • nannypoo

      There is nothing good about this ugly dress. Her face looks pretty.

    • duchessofjersey

      Remember Jem and the Holograms? I think this is what the Holograms wore.

      To tell the truth, in any other material I would hate everything about this, but I am mesmerized by her Daytime Sequins. They’re so tacky, yet so pretty! I kind of … like it?

      • drdarke

        Is it me, or does it appear that Heidi’s torso is in mid-beam-up…?

    • Winter_White

      Hee…the original dress on the runway vs. Heidi’s version. Makes me think of the experience of being unsure when you’re looking at a big bolt of fabric in a store — so the staff cuts you a wee teeny tiny li’l swatch of it to take home.

    • Jessi03

      Is it wrong that I get a sick pleasure out of watching how she modifies (Klumifies?) clothes?

    • Sara__B

      Isn’t the Today Show done in the very early morning? Nothing says early morning to me like short, (half) tight, and shiny.

    • Kathy_Marlow

      I saw the sequins (was excited, because, sequins) then scrolled down to the legs showing, all I can say is “of course” to that. other than that she looks good.

    • snarkykitten

      Did she consult Anya for the “revisions”?

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      SHORT AND SHINY. What else is new?

    • http://twitter.com/aidanboleyn Aidan B

      Well, at least her boobs are covered.
      Seriously though, she looks like the trashy girl at the club that drinks too much and tries to start a fight.

      • MoHub

        Yes. And it looks as if she’s actually wearing a proper bra as well.

    • j_anson

      The bottom hem looks kind of ragged, which I suspect is just because of the sequins on the edge, but which I prefer to think is because she actually cut the skirt off with scissors.

    • conniemd

      Did she have to sit down while on Today Show?

    • http://twitter.com/marriedkuntz Raymond Dnomyar

      I like it better than the runway version but nonetheless: Of course.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Small correction:

      Heidi Klum makes an appearance on ‘The Today Show’ in New York City in a Talbot Runhof dress
      ought to read
      Heidi Klum makes an appearance on ‘The Today Show’ in New York City in part of a Talbot Runhof dress

      There. All good.

      • Funkykatt


      • embers618

        I was thinking the same thing – it’s like she sees a designer use a fabric that she likes, and then uses it for this dress.
        Heidi Klum in a dress made from fabric that Talbot Runhof also used.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=10910518 Erica Woods Tucker

        Or Heidi Klum makes an appearance on the ‘The Today Show’ in New York City in a napkin with a Runhof design on it….just sayin…

    • Zippypie

      From the neck up, she looks great. I prefer not to acknowledge from the neck down except to say OF COURSE.

      • PastryGoddess

        you beat me to it

    • Pennymac

      Puh-lease. She’s a friggin cartoon character.

    • PastryGoddess

      That’s it


    • http://twitter.com/SamH4Prez Samantha

      Definitely not venue appropriate but I don’t even care because this is so tacktastically amazing. I love it and I will not apologize!

    • In_Stitches

      Why is one sleeve fitted and the other a baggy batwing? That’s one weird ass design element…

    • zelavie

      Oh, man, the magpie in me LOVES this! I’m a sucker for anything with a holographic type effect. I’d never wear this myself, but I’m all about the Kluminator in in. Totally fun.

    • ralish

      Oh wow, she turned a dress into a shirt!

    • kmk05

      Everything (except the dress) is gorgeous. The dress is ‘short, tight, and shiny’ on crack.

    • Stubenville

      I hope she had on some lovely panties, because it’s fairly certain the good china was visible when Heidi sat down..

    • http://twitter.com/flo_whytingale Florence Whytingale

      And how exactly is one supposed to sit on camera in this? Oh wait, it’s Klum. Carry on.

    • Donna Tabor

      Short? Check.

      Shiny? Check.

      Tight? Check.

    • filmcricket

      I have to say I kind of love it. It’s so disco fabulous. So, so wrong for the ‘venue’ though. A) morning show, not “E! at Studio 54.” B) Not for sitting. C) Oh my god, those sequins would interact poorly with TV cameras.

    • flamingoNW


    • http://profiles.google.com/gillianholroyd gillian holroyd

      Make-up looks good. Anyone know how she managed the sitting-down part?

    • http://marshmallowjane.com/ marshmallowjane

      I wonder why Heidi has to keep proving her sex appeal. Is she still in love with Seal? Is she reminding him about what he doesn’t have? I’m just guessing about that. Her dresses get shorter and shorter. I’d like to see Heidi put class and fashion ahead of sex appeal.

    • sherrietee

      It looks like she’s a walking color blind test.

      • Coco Cornejo


    • Coco Cornejo

      Other than the fabric, how is the dress Heidi wearing the same as the runway look? Besides being way shorter the sleeves are completely different.

      • Jackie4g

        Look again, the sleeves of the original are also uneven, but the model’s strut is pretty much obscuring that.

    • Anniebet

      I dunno, she’s pretty damn gorgeous, but as others have said… of course. We know you have spectacular legs, dear. Now lets see some class to go with them.

    • Mlzx

      Is she serious?

    • http://www.facebook.com/AdriannaGrezak Adrianna Grężak

      I was running errands in the area and saw her today! This was actually for the taping of America’s Got Talent.

      • MoHub

        Oh, the sarcasm!

    • DeTrop

      I think she looks great. Her smile alone is fantastic. She looks so alive and happy. Those legs are killer.

    • demidaemon

      Leave it to Heidi to give a perfectly fine (well, not really, but stay with me here) dress the slut cut.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      Just… WOW. OF COURSE she hacked the whole bottom of the dress off. But that dress… those sequins… I just can’t.

    • korilian

      God. The worst is that she chose to cut it at that length.

    • formerlyAnon

      That slightly uncultured, wacky streak that comes out in her sometimes (I’m told it’s more evident in the t.v. she does in Europe) is going to gradually take over her fashion sense as she marches into middle age, isn’t it? It’ll be like watching a baseball game. I’ll bring beer and something to read in the slow innings if you’ll buy the hot dogs.

      • H2olovngrl

        Especially as she frantically tries to keep up with a younger generation of beautiful women. If Seal ends up, as so many musicians do, with a hot (much) younger new wife, just wait. All hell will break loose.

        • formerlyAnon

          I hadn’t thought of that, but you might be right. I hope not. I make fun of her, but deep down I wish her well. She’s strikes me as a type A, sometimes coldly critical, Martha Stewart-level control freak, but with a silly affectionate streak that sometimes breaks through and mostly redeems her.

          • H2olovngrl

            She definitely seems to be a fiercely devoted mother, for which I have a lot of respect

    • silaria

      When I was about four years old, I fell in love with a roll of wrapping paper that looked JUST LIKE THAT, and somehow convinced my parents to buy it for me. I adored it, and scavenged through my toys looking for things I didn’t want so I could give them to my parents as brightly-wrapped presents.

      I haven’t thought of that story in years. Thanks, Heidi!

    • oldbobbydraper

      those photos literally hurt my eyes.

    • http://www.facebook.com/4katiemckinney Katie McKinney

      LEGS, yes I have good ones. And of course, of course.

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

      I absolutely adore holographic sequins and will not hear a word against them. I also think this would have been perfect if it were 2″ longer.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=9362159 Tracy Walker

      At this point, the dresses shorten themselves as soon as she puts them on. It’s the magic of the Kluminator.

      • MoHub

        And they shrink in fit as well.

    • MoHub

      First of all, it’s not the same dress; it’s just the same fabric.

      And: short—check; tight—check; shiny—check; desperate—double check.

    • plinkiedoodle

      @ Kira: yes, I agree. Of course!

    • Beverly Kozma

      I see she’s cut off the collar too. Good move. But this one straight, one dolman sleeve thing needs never to be repeated.

    • carnush

      Of course.

    • Sunraya

      How embarrassing for the host of a design show to dress as she does. Nina must get tired of rolling her eyes,

    • http://profiles.google.com/h.e.waddell Heather Waddell

      I was thinking “wow. Heidi did a good job! This is really pretty and
      unexpected, and looks great on her!” Then I scrolled down and saw what
      she did to that hem. Oh Heidi, you are yourself, aren’t you?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000088447181 Sam Smith

      I love the fun print and I don’t mind the shortening, but way too short.

    • http://twitter.com/omg_dora Dora K.

      It’s less hideous in the mini version and without the collar, and she also styled it nicely, but it’s still a revolting dress.

    • disqus_sZRDWtvvVD

      Genetic freak, lol. I usually don’t like what she wears, but she is so beautiful. Even in skimpy clothes, she looks so comfortable. Years of being an underwear model?

    • crash1212

      Well, she’s mostly covered, so there’s that. I’ll bet there’s no back to that frock…that’s the Heidi twist. She looks pretty although I hope she didn’t have to perch on a stool in that thing.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=571205045 Kent Roby

      Irridescent sequins (sequinced!) in daytime is a huge NO, unless you’re in New Orleans and it’s Mardi Gras Day.

    • Jenna Olson

      Well it’s short, shiny, and half tight? ….

    • http://twitter.com/hmbscully WendyD

      I saw the shot of Heidi framed from the waist up on another site first. My thought was “what a crazy, shirt! I want it.”
      I truly expected to see a scroll down of her in tight jeans and heels. Why did I ever think that? Has TLo taught me nothing?!

    • Tamara Hogan

      OF COURSE.

    • Sunraya

      Is her ex-bodyguard still her bodyguard, or just her boyfriend now?

    • http://remedialstitcher.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

      That just hurts my eyes, in so many ways. Too sparkly for the Today show, stupid sleeve treatment, too short. Blech. Heidi looks pretty though from the neck up.

    • TAGinMO

      Ohfergawdsakes. A sequined mini-Slanket?

    • Amy909

      She is beautiful no doubt… but this outfit reminds me of how my friends and I dressed in college when we went clubbing in the early aughts. The belt, the length of the dress, and that baggy armpit sleeve (except both of the sleeves were the same). Yes, she can pull off that length of skirt, but should she? I am in my late twenties and feel uncomfortable wearing outfits like that now! More power to her I guess!

    • PhillipWilde

      Mylar balloon.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=603005248 Jeff Warhurst

      Absurd for a morning show. She’s dressed in Annie Allnighter’s gear.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      Oh, Heidi. The world doesn’t HAVE to be your gynecologist.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jacoryd JaCory Deon

      Once again, we know you have the body…there’s no need to show it off like this every single time! For someone who’s fond of saying “I question his/her taste level”, girl…

    • mhleta

      She looks really good. Healthy, happy and incredibly fit. She’s following that unwritten rule, If you’re going to go short on the bottom, show some restraint on the top, which I give points for. As far as appropriateness for the time of day and venue, mmmm, not so much. This says Miami Beach Night Club at 2AM, not NYC chat show at 7AM. But that’s Heidi.

    • maggiemaybe

      That first shot of her in the tiny version followed by the runway version is hilarious.

    • l_c_ann

      If she wore it upside down, it would be less hoochi mamma.

    • MarissaLG

      I didn’t know they taped the Today Show at midnight on New Years Eve…

    • http://twitter.com/susanpcollier Susan Collier

      Doesn’t get much shorter or shinier than that.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1241487378 Lauren Lynch Fox

      Her looks are a gift from God, but…..really?

    • eight_of_nine

      Oh my god, the second-to-last picture. She is all “HERE I AM, BITCHES!” and Mr. Bodyguard back there is not impressed.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=10910518 Erica Woods Tucker

      At least she’s keeping the cray cray consistent.

    • Peeve

      Isn’t this a little, um, MUCH for the Today Show????

    • MzzPants

      She..has…a…BRA ON!! There is a God.

    • http://www.facebook.com/Murphy.J.Colin Colin Murphy

      If she was going to cut the hem so low, why did she wear that belt? It puts the whole dress of center, and makes the proportions way off. There’s too much to forgive, considering also the amorphous armpit.

    • librarygrrl64

      Of course.

    • http://twitter.com/carnivaltenten Ten Ten

      When I saw this headline, I said to myself, she’s going to have either her boobs or her legs out.

      So said, so done.

      Of course.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=783500814 Amelia Pitts

      I wonder if there are designers who turn her down if she requests a dress knowing she’ll want to talk modifications that go beyond their comfort zone. “Hide the scissors!” :)

    • http://profiles.google.com/sauchih Sau-Chih Feng

      I move that “Kluminate” be added to our vocabulary, verb, and the definition shall be “to render a dress or outfit in such a style as would be appealing to Heidi Klum, aka the Kluminator”
