Heidi Klum in NYC

Posted on June 18, 2013

Now there’s the Heidi we all love to see.

 

Heidi Klum poses outside NBC Studios after an appearance on ‘The Today Show’ in New York City.

Supertight mini and visible bra? Check and check. But respect must be paid, because we think this has got a classic chic feel to it and she looks really fantastic. When we bitch at her for going the short, tight, and shiny route, it’s not because we think Heidi can’t rock a mini or revealing clothing. It’s that she’s so dicey taste-wise on that front; tipping over into tacky at least half the time she does it. But this, we love. It’s sexy and eye-catching in that perfectly Heidi way without looking try-too-hard.

Maybe she didn’t feel like a pedi that morning, but the right black sandals would go really well with the breezy-sexy-chic feel of this.

      I think, either black sandals or red flats would look great with this dress.

      • MoHub

        Yes to red flats!

    • charlotte

      I don’t know, you guys. I think the visible bra takes it away from classic chic. And how was she able to sit down in this?

      • Patricia Gillett

        I am with you on this.

      • Jessica Freeman

        Completely agree. If she was younger, it would be perfect. She is not.

      • AmeliaEve

        But note that the shark’s tooth pendant is perfectly aligned with the band of the bra. It’s all in the details, kids.

      • DailyDose

        I m with you, too. there are differences between bedroom chic and street chic. NYC street isnt beach resort, either.

      • barbarienne

        It works because she’s a gorgeous (former) supermodel. She moves in a different world and carries herself differently than the rest of us.

        This isn’t office wear. Anyone with the body and poise to wear this would be fine in most NYC hotspots.

        As for how she’s able to sit down: practice. She’s worn a lot of these getups. I’m sure she’s got an automatic reflex to smooth it under her butt and keep her knees together when she sits.

    • Erin Baran

      Agreed, black sandals would sing with this outfit. I was majorly distracted by her dark roots showing however

    • Gwyndall

      I’m not sure if it’s my prudish dislike of short skirts, of if it’s truly a question of proportions, but I want to yank that skirt down an inch or so.

      • Rhonda Shore

        Maybe, but this is a huge improvement for her, IN.

    • Diego!

      Guys haven’t you checked the top half? That blouse is not fit and makes her look wider than she actually is. This is a ‘polished’ disaster. It’s an OUT. Sorry.

      • MikeW_Vegas

        I was about to say those exact words.. The top makes Heidi look a little “hippy” and Heidi is NOT Hippy

        • Diego!

          Thanks. Not only ‘hippy’ but chubby as well!

          • Lisa Utter

            I actually thought she looked pregnant.

            • Diego!

              I saw the pictures once again and I have to agree. Pics #1 and #3 are awkward!

      • omg_dora

        It’s not meant to be fitted. It’s a loose, drapey top, and it’s probably very flattering in movement.

        • Diego!

          I know, but that effect doesn’t apply here. It should have been paired with some very tight pants then. In this case is not working at all with that skirt. I think both of them are fighting each other to stand out. I don’t like it. Sorry, it’s my opinion of course! And I respect yours as well :D

    • Frank_821

      My first wicked thought that came to mind was that skirt is rather long for her :p

      • Jessica Freeman

        Mine too…

    • Jaeda Laurez

      I LOVE this- she looks amazing, but still hip and sexy. But I really don’t get why people don’t bump the ends of their extensions- they look like straw with that hair just…hanging there.

    • Jessica Freeman

      That is not short for Ms. Klum. I think the sheer shirt makes the taste level questionable, given her age. She is giving off Nicki Hilton vibes…

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      Hamburglar chic.

    • bertkeeter

      HEIDI, Your in….you can leave the runway!

      • Diego!

        My mistake! LOL xD I disagree. It’s an “Aufwiedersehen Heidi” in my opinion. Tschüss Heidi! :P

    • MilaXX

      Cute enough. Agree a strappy sandal would have been better

    • l_c_ann

      For the first time in a long, long time, she’s wearing a bra, proveably so.

      For this, major huzzahs.

      • Targettaste

        YES! I’m no fan of visible bras, but in Heidi’s case I’m just grateful that she is wearing a bra.

    • Glam Dixie

      All she needs are shoulder pads to take this totally into 80’s land, but maybe that’s just me.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      She looks fresh and young – a perfect Heidi look!!

    • IAmJ

      Enh. I’m not crazy about this look at all. Hate the hair and the hoop earrings. Not too impressed with the rest of the ensemble either.

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

      Love it. Best we’ve seen in a long, slightly desperate, while.

    • cowper

      I think one reason why she looks so good: No big shiny jewelry.

    • Lesley

      for being a model and the host of project runway, she has no clue how to dress for her age or body. tsk tsk.

    • hughman

      What is that necklace? It’s like something your surfer BF bought on the boardwalk in Santa Monica and gave you when you asked him for gas money.

    • majorbedhead

      She looks better than she has in a while.

    • crash1212

      I love this. Full stop. I even like the shoes. Nicely done Klumster.

    • j_anson

      I like this, even with the visible bra. Partly because it’s not super-tight over all. The skirt is, but the shirt has more of a loose flowing feeling, and if her goal is to look as model-shaped as she can, she actually does it better in this kind of outfit than when she wedges herself into something that’s super-tight from neck to thighs.

      • marlie

        My thoughts exactly. I didn’t see your post before I wrote mine. :)

    • marlie

      Despite the see-through shirt, I really like this. It’s cute and chic, and a “normal” person would just have to put on a cami in order to try this look. Also, the short skirt is ok with me, because she *didn’t* go with the tight or low-cut up top.

    • LaSylphide

      Granted she doesn’t look embarrassing, but that kind of bra display is just tacky, no matter how good the rest of the look may be.

    • PetitePear

      She’s wearing a bra, that’s an automatic improvement.

    • demidaemon

      I’m not sure I can get behind this for a morning talk show appearance. The sheer is pushing it one step too far.

    • largishbearishAtlish

      and no one commented on the nasty hair? get your roots done dear…or I am sure Ms Griffin has a wig or two you can borrow…

    • Targettaste

      Not only is her clothing less tight and shiny than usual, her hair and make-up are less tight and shiny. She looks so much better when she is casual, not trying too hard.

    • MichelleRafter

      So much better than what she usually wears, agree a red sandal would have been killer. My biggest quibble: the blond streaks in her hair matched the stripes in her outfit – not good.

    • http://twitter.com/kendallbrunson SassyMcFrench

      But what about that hair?! Honey, that color is just not working for you anymore.

    • TheAmericaness

      1. Is she wearing a bra? Check.
      2. Does it look like she can moderately breathe? Check
      3. Is the outfit NOT Teutonic, i.e. wackadoo? Check

      Verdict = LOVE IT!

    • bd73

      the statement here is ’40 years old with four natural children and never been better.’ i wish i was her.

    • Aaminah Khan

      To the people asking how you sit in something that short: with practice. I regularly wear minis that short (though usually with tights). You get used to it.

      I just love that her hair isn’t pulled back into that awful, too-tight ponytail she favours for no discernible reason.

    • Joy

      I had actually forgotten that she is pretty.

    • Aurumgirl

      If that blouse weren’t sheer, she’d look great. As it is, mutton dressed as lamb again.

    • ashtangajunkie

      I love this outfit. I can’t think of the last time I saw Klum in something I liked more than this.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      MEH.

    • H2olovngrl

      She looks so much younger when she is dressed down a bit like this! So cute! Sandals would have made it perfect.
