All right, enough with the boys. Let’s get a lady all up in here for some judgment. Miss Heidi will do nicely, since she always gives us something to tsk about.

It’s about what one would expect from Heidi. That sounds kind of bitchily dismissive, but it’s not meant to. Really, she looks great. It’s on th tacky side of things, but that’s exactly the kind of look she’s best at working. Come to think of it, we’re a little surprised she doesn’t wear more Versace. It really is tailor-made for all her strengths. The fact that this is white goes a long way toward preventing it from being too much. Also, the fact that Heidi’s wearing it, since she made her name wearing outrageous things and making them look sexy.
There’s not much we’d recommend changing here. The slit’s a bit too high (no surprise there) and the heels a bit too clunky, but otherwise, it’s pretty much Perfect Heidi.

But she missed the point on this one completely. She had the skirt underneath shortened to a more Heidi-like length, but this dress, from Marchesa’s India- and sari-inspired collection, really only works if the underskirt has some length to it. You take that away and the proportions go wrong. Plus the styling’s not so hot. Those earrings just plain don’t go and the shoes would not have been our first choice. A dress like this gives someone like Heidi a chance to break out of their normal routine. She could have gone a more exotic route with her jewelry choices and chosen a pair of interesting sandals. That’s how we would have played it. Not, like, a bindi or anything like that; just maybe some precious stones or more unusual designs and materials; bringing the glitter down to an earthier level. Maybe some hand jewelry, if that doesn’t wind up looking too cliche. Either way, this was not the dress to go the conventional sexy and glam route.
