    Ever since you guys said it is weird that she doesn’t wear more Versace she has been wearing a LOT of Versace! Maybe she is listening? Although I know you didn’t mean it in a way that is entirely complimentary…

    • Yeah… that was more of a “Y’know… Heidi’s SUPER-tacky. She should wear more Versace!” backhanded slap.

      • homofascist

        Slits up to here and peekaboo boobies – no alterations necessary! What more could she ask for?

        • YoungSally

          She wanted it to light up like a tannenbaum.

      • Monzerrat Ontiveros

        she’s transforming in Jen Aniston…

      • MilaXX

        so we blame you for putting that into the universe?

      • TheAmericaness

        The unfortunate side-effect of online communication – so much lost in translation and all the pieces come together like one of those movies where everyone affects everyone else and I’m left looking at THAT. sigh.

        • ankali

          ETA: Fuck you, Disqus.

      • Glammie

        English is her second language, I think irony (along with taste) may elude her . . .

      • DinnerIsServed1972

        Don’t you mean, VER-SAYCE?

  • “Well if Selena Gomez, a girl half my age, can look like an idiot, I can too.”

  • NOLA_gal

    Gah. Please stop.

    • drdarke

      Pardon me – is Heidi drunk in these shots…?

  • aeb1986

    oh my god. NO. NO

  • nyazgirl

    This is like, Xanadu prisonwear.

    • aeb1986

      totally. she looks like shes tangled in something…her shame perhaps?

  • Richard

    Did she gain weight, or is that dress so tight that’s it’s severely altering the way her body looks?
    I mean, if she gained weight it’s not a bad thing, it would have happened faster than I thought it would.

    Also: people need to stop wearing this awkward looking dress. Just stop.

    • TheDivineMissAnn

      Yes! This dress is hiddy.

      And…I think she looks pregnant.

    • MoHub

      It’s not so much a weight gain as a normal shift with age. Proper undergarments would fix that, but unfortunately, she keeps wearing garments that don’t allow one to wear underwear.

      • ConnieBV

        THIS. I keep thinking with her and Gwynnie and others of their persuasion that there is an age past which you cannot go braless in public. There is scoopmeltage and bunrunnage and you just have to get help with keeping things from heading south. Unless you are Dame Helen, and if so, you are a sexrobot.

        • MoHub

          Except that I believe Queen Helen always has the proper underpinnings.

          • ConnieBV

            If by underpinnings you mean admantium framework, I agree.

          • marlie

            I agree with MoHub… it seems like most of the time Dame Helen is either wearing the appropriate undergarments, or they’re built into the clothes.

            That’s another thing… I don’t want to hear anyone say “a bra can’t be worn because it’s backless/sheer/low cut/whatever” because even I, a lowly mortal, have had a seamstress/tailor sew cups into dresses when I knew that I wouldn’t be able to wear a bra.

      • marlie

        YES. I keep looking at this picture and thinking, “it wouldn’t be half as bad if she had the right support for the girls.” Not that I’m at all endorsing this dress, but I’m actually distracted by how badly she needs foundation garments!

  • Guest

    This is like, Xanadu prisonwear. :-/

  • IAmJ

    This is quite horrifisch. Also, where does she find the time to do three reality shows?

  • AW

    The skimpiest, most garish straightjacket I’ve ever seen.

  • dickylarue

    Every time I see Robin Thicke pop up on one of these reality “talent” shows a piece of my soul dies. Why God? Why?

    • MilaXX

      He’s hysterical making fun of his image on Real Hollywood Husbands so at least he’s aware of his cheeseball image.

    • His song “Blurred Lines” is pretty cool.

  • CeeRich

    Did she really need those big hoop earrings? *sigh* Sometimes, I feel like these celebs should TALK the dress out first. If she had to describe that dress to someone it would sound like this “Girl, it’s hot bubblegum pink, with mesh inserts, and a thigh high split, with a neon green choker and then it has these rubber and gold tubes holding it all together!” If she had to actually say that? I’d like to think she would say…”Hmmm…uh no…that sounded straight crazy.”

    • cowper

      And…”As a bonus, there’s no place to hide the mike wires so it makes it look like I’m wearing some crazy lingerie underneath.”–!!

      • Monzerrat Ontiveros

        you’re right, it looks awful!!! All the wires and stuff..

        • Glammie

          The mike wires are amazing. I’ve worn a body mike onstage and I don’t remember it being quite *that* wired. She looks like she could set off a bomb.

          Which maybe explains the outfit.

          • cowper

            A literal “bombshell”! “I dropped a bomb on you, baby…I dropped a bomb on you..(eeeeeee)!”

      • l_c_ann

        Crazy lingerie beats next to no lingerie by a mile/2.54 kilometers.

    • j_anson

      Hahahahah, this.

    • MilaXX

      This is just a white version of that stripper dress Selena Gomez wore a while back.

    • marlie

      As if it wasn’t already a huge steaming pile of tacky, the earrings just added to it.

  • Horrifically unflattering on her. It makes every part of her look like its heading south for the winter.

    • The fit is sooooo offensive. Which is really saying something considering the total shit design.

      • marlie

        Like, NO ONE told her this dress was a bad idea?!

        • I don’t want a job as a stylist. I want a job as vocalized realist. I was born with the gift of blunt, someone could pay me to give honest, unbiased, Girl Hell No or Hell Yes appraisals. Bitter Kitten Consultations, I’d call it.

          • marlie

            I’d contribute to the starter fund for that business.

      • RebeccaKW

        The shot of her from the back? Horrible. Everyone should take a page from Cher (Horowitz) and take pics instead of using mirrors. Send a minion 20 feet away and snap pics of you from every angle, THEN decide if this is the dress for you.

    • j_anson

      It is also not tailored to her, by which I mean, it is too tight.

  • TAGinMO



  • j_anson

    Oh lord no.

  • 3boysful

    Awful. Tho I am impressed with her arm in the air and no chicken wing flapping.

    Clearly she has found Hermione’s time-shifter: PR, GNTM, AGT, VIctoria’s Secret . . . when does she sleep?

  • Monzerrat Ontiveros

    maybe a size bigger, or with some spandex on, or another dress,… :S

  • swiss_miss

    Apart that it is tacky & unflattering, its also not really that good an idea to go backless if there are tons of cables and stuff on your back.

    • SugarSnap108

      That’s the most mystifying part. Even if you have Heidi’s taste level and think the dress is fab, how could anyone think it works with a jumble of wires hanging down her back and whatever those things are positioned on her ass?

  • Patty


  • MilaXX

    I’ll use a word my fellow BK’s helped me with this earlier…….


    • If you’re interested in words, I’ll teach you another: Selbstverständlich. Natürlich means naturally, and her tackyness is nothing which should be genuine. Selbstverständlich means something like “Understandable because of itself”. It’s just a fine distinction in their semantic, but then again I’m quite a sucker for semantics. A word-nerd!

      • MilaXX

        I was looking for a word or phrase for “of Course”

        • charlotte

          “War ja klar!”

        • “Logisch!”

          • MilaXX

            Thanks I’m sure Ms Klum will provide many opportunities to use it

  • appliquer

    Yikes, they lost the mirror again.

  • steeg of their own

    Microphone equipment and cables + backless skin-tight dress + downright tacky construction on said dress = doubleplus ungood.

    If Big Brother was looking down on this, Heidi, he’d avert his eyes. Which is great if you want to avoid totalitarian systems that spy on you, but not so good if you want to look banging on a TV show about models half your age.

  • Targettaste

    How can a woman so beautiful, with so much money, and so much access to stylists, look so bad?

    • demidaemon

      Pretty easily, especially if the other people involved are kowtowing to her.

      • Targettaste

        You’re right. Saying, “Heidi, that makes you look fat” = “I quit.”

  • Snailstsichr

    Well, the shoes are perfect with the dress. But the dress isn’t very flattering – or pretty.

  • Judih1

    She’s turning into Jenna Jamison (without the boob job)

  • nannypoo

    This is really awful. It would be tacky on anyone, but here we have a woman who is sadly past her sell-by date, who is getting thick around the middle and is overexposed in every possible way, trying to look like she’s having fun. It’s sad.

    • I hate the phrase “past her sell-by date” even if I agree that this dress is monumentally unsuited for her. Heidi is a beautiful woman – even if she’s not a twenty-year-old. I wish she would dress for the body she has now not the body she had then. She’s different but still gorgeous.

  • surfergirl70

    The shoes are fabulous, particularly the color paired with the pink of the dress. The dress, however, is revolting, and way too tight on her. She looks like a desperate old cougar.

  • Synnamin

    It’s an interesting dress on the model, but it doesn’t fit Heidi’s shape well. She’s quickly moving into tacky territory

    • H2olovngrl

      I don’t know if it even all that interesting on the model…that piping looks like it belongs on upholstery.

    • Lisa_Co

      Of course Heidi made the leg slit higher.

    • decormaven

      She’s already there and has established a base camp.

    • MoHub

      Moving into tacky territory? She has a massive real-estate investment there.

  • Carina Green

    We’re gonna have to start “of course”-ing her, too, I think.

  • frannyprof

    She looks terrible. That dress is an awful fit. Shoes are hideous.

    • H2olovngrl

      Does she have a stylist? Or better still, a mirror?

  • spooki C

    Somebody get her away from the Versace, it is not working for her. At least the shoes are nice.

  • It’s too small and makes her look pregnant.

  • 3boysful

    Has anyone else noticed the contestants appear to be wearing pantyhose beneath their swimsuits?? They don’t have spray tan in Germany?

    • golden_valley

      Me, me…I noticed. I thought for a minute they were dancers, not contestants.

  • gurl boy

    “Mien Kampf”….by Heidi Klum…The struggle of a super models refusal to hang up the hoochie koocie and settle for glamorus and chic! Honey…your loosing the battle!

    She looks like an outer space Swahili tribal woman ….HOOP EARRINGS?

    • charlotte

      Because everything about Germany has to have a Nazi reference (which you didn’t even spell right).

      • MoHub

        Also has trouble with hoochie-koochie, you’re, and losing; never mind spelling German words correctly.

        And racist on both sides of the equation.

        • Denise Plank

          And glamorous.

          • marlie

            I was going to add something else, but I thought that would just be mean. 😛

  • l_c_ann

    The non-word Titzen-blooper comes to mind.

    • MoHub

      It should be a word!

  • lundibleu

    Oh, HEIDI. Really, just because you’ve got the body to wear something, it doesn’t mean you should!

    Especially when that something is a tight dress with slits that, if they were any longer, would meet in the middle, and has to be held up with some spray painted garden hose.

    It looks amazingly uncomfortable, and surprisingly badly fitted, and… y’know, I think we can stop there. Pah! *throws hands up in helplessness*

    • DuBey2

      “spray painted garden hose” — now I can’t unsee it.

      • lundibleu

        Hah! Was the first thing I thought of when I saw the picture 🙂

  • IMNAngryLiberal

    She’s clearly stoned on stage .. and just as clearly was when she picked out this outfit.

  • plinkiedoodle

    Oh Heidi, this is a cry for help. Unfortunately, you’re howling into the abyss.

  • demidaemon

    WTF is this? Also, some of her facial expressions here are particularly hilarious.

  • myristica_fragrans

    miami stripper.

  • jerseyginger

    That’s some Nomi Malone Ver-sayce mess right there. Yikes.

  • Girl_With_a_Pearl

    No one on that stage is dressed well. However, Heidi is the tackiest amongst a whole stage of tacky.

  • I have to go fix myself a drink. That was a lot to take in all at once.

  • PeaceBang

    Again, I don’t understand why cable hasn’t approached TLo for a Celebrity Fashion Intervention show. Because this is an episode that I would stay home to watch.

    • MoHub

      I would record it and watch it over and over and over again.

  • quiltrx

    This is hysterically unflattering!
    But you know what is making me giggle even more? Those models in their swimsuits and pantyhose.

  • pookiesmom

    Have any of you watched this show? It puts ALL other fashion/modeling shows to shame. I mean, this dress is absolutely dreadful, but the show is fantastic.

    • Lisa_Co

      Where can you watch it?

      • pookiesmom

        I watched season 1 and 2 a couple of years ago on youtube–there was a group of people who did english subs for it. I have no idea if the videos are still up, though. I hope so. It was so far from America’s Next Top Model, there’s really no comparison. For one thing, the contestants were like, legitimate models. For another, Heidi actually gave them serious coaching. Plus, there wasn’t any unnecessary drama.

        • wavewalker

          That has been the past. The present is, unfortunately, a totally different matter.
          The show’s become quite bad. Nothing interesting about it anymore, mostly drama and backstabbing.

          But the first few seasons were great, yes.

          • pookiesmom

            Oh, that’s really disappointing!! I loved the first two seasons primarily for their lack of drama and focus on fashion. Heidi was super charming in her role as coach/mentor to the girls, and seemed to really know her shit. How unfortunate that the show has reverted to typical reality tv drivel.

          • wavewalker

            I really loved watching it back then. Nowadays, I just.. tune in and have it on in the background. The thing is, back then it was all kind of serious. Nowadays it’s the Heidi Show (she has also been doing all the voiceovers this season) plus a few teenagers trying their best to be hissy-bitchy. Plus, I don’t know how it is for English native speakers, but she is terribly squaky and unnatural when talking German.

  • Janet B

    The yellow Jimmy Choo’s were a good choice for this dress.

    Oy, is right.

  • Nimith

    Is it weird that I’m getting a Cirque du soleil vibe from that dress? Where’s her hula hoop?

  • kimiakay

    It’s another dress with something wrapped around her neck. I don’t know how she can stand that. Plus she’s commando under there, which is just so obvious it’s embarrassing. But not to her, apparently. I don’t know what’s going on in Heidi-land but it looks a bit crazy from here.

  • TheAmericaness

    They ARE in Germany. Which… ok.. is not exactly the fashion capital of the world. They’re always dragging behind a little.. or a lot. No T, No Shade, Germany. Love you. Kiss Kiss. Don’t invade my home. Thank you.

  • commish24

    Cute sandals. The rest of it is awful. No wonder two topless women disrupted the show!

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    That dress did NOT look terrible on Selena Gomez. Definitely should have been a red flag for the Kluminator.

  • gurl boy

    In this get up it looks like she belongs on one of those insane Italian variety shows! Sorry ITALY! PATZO!

  • Heidiiiiiiiiiii! Wtf are you doing?

  • Good grief. This dress is a terrible fit! It sure doesn’t flatter Heidi at all!

  • Here’s another thought: Maybe the dress looks good in the mirror when it’s pulled down. It fits her like a glove. But when she moves, it scoots up and gets twisted. She obviously has no idea how she looks.

    • MoHub

      You are being far too charitable.

  • H2olovngrl

    Good Lord! She is on the ‘A’ train to Tacky Town!

  • EverybodysStarling

    The funniest part of it? When she thought she was off air she said to one of the girls “Sorry that I’m so sweaty”. Had an hysterical laughing attack after that.

  • marlie

    I’m kind of embarrassed FOR her in this getup.

  • Ummy

    Selena Gomez wore pretty much the same about a week ago… I’m all for being a little out there, but I don’t think this looks good one either. I’m not even sure I like it on the model.

  • Sarah Souffriau

    Of motherfucking course. C’mon Heidi.

  • Contralto

    tacky, tacky, tacky.

  • Cathy S

    The dress is hideous, and I am not a shoe person at all, but those shoes! Her feet look fabulous in those shoes! More people should wear those, just not me.

  • IraKi

    She should be put in prison for endangering an animal’s welfare. I can hear those puppies cry in discomfort.

  • Patricia Gillett

    Bad color + bad fit + bad design – any support garments = HOT MESS. Honey, Tim Gunn is going to walk the other way next time you two meet and I do not blame him.

    • marlie

      I can hear Michael Kors and Nina Garcia saying “she has taste issues.”

  • MannahattaMamma

    When I saw the thumbnail of this photo, I thought it was some kind of weird gymnastics exhibition & La Klum was swinging on the uneven bars in a gymnast’s leotard. Frankly, it would’ve been better if that had been the case.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Ohhhh, this isn’t good. I know it’s Sausage Friday, but this is Sausage CASING Friday!

  • Damien W

    From the new “I’m Not Pregnant…I’m Crazy!” collection…

  • Personally I think Heidi needs to get the “of course” card more. Because seriously – of course.

  • EditKitten

    God, I hate Versace.

  • My first thought was, “Yikes! Heidi got caught in the Olympics logo rings.” Then I saw the back view. What a hot mess of cabling for her mike and monitor! She looks ridiculous.

    • DuBey2

      This! The cabling alone should tell one NOT to wear a garment with gaping holes in the back. Even if modesty/decency will never be motivation enough.

  • DuBey2

    This is the WORST picture I have ever seen of Heidi. Both the thumbnail & the scroll down. Please, TLo, TRY to get through to her. I don’t wanna watch the trainwreck anymore… I want my beautiful Heidi back, or a newer, more mature (in the good sense) version of her who dresses appropriately so as to make the most of her assets.

  • Sunraya

    Here is the shame of it – look at her face compared to all of the other “top” models. Not one of them can hold a candle to her beauty. Her face is astoundingly beautiful – I think the only person who even comes close to her beauty is Charlize Theron, and Theron doesn’t seem to have the inner glow that Heidi has. Yet she believes her beauty is mostly in her body, or so it seems.

    This is a beautiful woman, a succesful businesswoman, a mother, and supposedly, a very nice person. I wish she had a friend she trusted who could have an honest talk with her about her self-worth and inner beauty, and her still commanding outer beauty.

  • Pudgy Possum

    Her body doesn’t look nice here, though I know she HAS a nice body. Dress’s fault, I’m thinking (not to mention the fit is off).

  • Erica_Vuitton

    AW no pics of the topless protesters with “Heidi’s Horror Picture Show” written across their torsos???

  • Oh my.

  • susan6

    Everything above the ankles is just…..wrong.

  • unbornfawn

    Those first pictures make me think that Heidi is harnessed up to the helicopter and pulling the thing onstage.

  • Anniebet

    Mayor of Tackyville? She needs an fashion intervention or rehab, and someone needs to be fired for letting her wear that dress.

  • She just looks dumpy.

  • Bethany Fairbrother

    Um…You”re hot! Now please cover up!

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    Tacky. Tacky Tacky Tacky.
