Heidi Klum in NYC

Posted on July 09, 2013

God bless you for walking the hot city streets in those heels, girl. We don’t know how you do it. Then again, we’re pretty sure most Victoria’s Secret models are genetically predetermined to walk on the balls of their feet all the time.


Heidi Klum out and about in New York City.

We wanted to tell her she looks pretty amazing, but man, are we ever distracted by the tablecloth trailing behind her. We swallowed our bile and (mostly) complimented someone for wearing a mullet-hemmed dress earlier today, but as God is our witness, we will never praise the mullet-hemmed blouse.

Is that even a thing? Mullet blouses? Because we don’t think we’ve ever seen one before this. At least not one with a back hem so long it makes her look like her butt has a tongue.

    I cannot fathom how to keep all that fabric out of the toilet when one sits to pee.

    • zenobar

      Great minds, continuing to think alike.

    • You gather it into a tail and hoik it forward over your shoulder.

      • Jacqueline Wessel

        Or tuck it into the back of your bra. (Of course you have to be wearing a bra.)

        • MoHub

          A snug bra.

      • housefulofboys

        I’ll even do this with a long dress to keep it off public restroom stall floors. And hope no one looks in through the cracks.

        • demidaemon

          I’d think you would just hook it over the back of the tank, after some liberal Lysol spraying.

  • VioletFem

    Oh its a thing. I’ve definitely seen people wear the mullet blouses recently, although not to the length that she has here. They are even worse than mullet skirts/dresses, which can sometimes look good at the right length (and with just enough wind).

    • Introspective

      we are quite lucky that heidi didnt just turn this blouse into a dress since her predilection is for all things gynotastic.

      but as always, she proves herself to be much better at casual than anything else. she always looks so fab in these daytime on the go getups.

    • Slanted & Enchanted

      I feel like mullet blouses became a thing following the rising trend of wearing leggings as pants and the immediate backlash against women wearing leggings as pants. Most of my friends who rock the mullet hem do so in order to feel less exposed.

      I actually love a well-deployed mullet hem on certain dresses. I might even have one myself 😉

      • VioletFem

        The well deployed mullet dress can look very elegant. It’s all about the proportions. Personally, I think that they look best when the front part of the hem does not go above the knees.

  • flamingoNW

    Yeah, can’t with the mullet hem…. I like it otherwise. You won’t ever catch me in shoes like that. Actually couldn’t wear them if I wanted to.

  • RebeccaKW

    I’ve seen mullet tops. “Hi-Lo” tops. I hate them. I have big boobs and a big of a tummy, so those shirts just emphasize the wrong areas.

    I’ve never seen a mullet top this long in the back, though. The one’s I’ve seen, the front hits at your waist and the back near your pockets.

  • StelledelMare

    It seems like so many shirts (at least those in places like target, tj maxx, etc) have those hi-lo hems. The kind Heidi is sporting is uncommon but not unheard of. I usually don’t have much of an issue with the mullet hem in dress/skirt form (though I don’t love it). But I can’t stand it in shirt form. Either way I can’t wait for the trend to die because I’m so tired of seeing it everywhere.

  • zenobar

    Aesthetics aside, that butt-tongue would be getting caught on EVERYTHING wouldn’t it? Not long enough to be a dress, not short enough to be a tunic, but the perfect length to wend itself around seat belt buckles, snag the tops of chairs in sidewalk cafes, snag the corners of bargain book tables, and drift gently into the toilet when having a pee.

  • Janet B

    “…butt has a tongue.”
    I choked on my sandwich.

  • cowper

    It’s a new thing: shirt that doubles as a reusable grocery bag. You zip up the mullet bottom and then tie the sleeves together to make a handle. Voila!

  • MilaXX

    Yep mullet hemmed tops are a thing. I almost bought one because one of the plus sized bloggers I follow managed to wear one so convincingly. I don’t like Heidi’s, but carefully deployed they can work.

    • fiestyfashionfem

      Please share the name of your plus sized blogger! Thanks.

      • MilaXX

        I follow several, Gabifresh, Garnerstyle, Curvatude are a few of the more popular ones

        • Squeee…how cute is Gabifresh? Thanks for naming names, I enjoyed checking out all three of these ladies.

  • frannyprof

    It’s meant to soak up the crotch sweat she’s inevitably going to get from running around in heavy denim in NYC in July.

    • Cynica

      My first thought when I saw that picture was “imminent vaginal infection.”

      • Maybe THAT’S Victoria’s Secret??? How to defy heat and tight clothing “issues.”

  • StellaZafella

    A little longer in front and it would be a dead ringer for the “found fabric” mini-dresses made by hippie chicks in the SF Haight in the 60’s> Created by taking any length of found fabric (old dashiki’s, bed spreads,) etc..and cutting a head hole in it off center, and sew up the sides. The “tale” was a fashion statement.
    Granted, Heidi’s cost what most hippies made in a year but the silhouette is reminiscent.

    I kinda like it , now that I remember where I’ve seen it before, especially with the blue jeans and heels.

  • decormaven

    The shoes are a disconnect- suede heels with a filmy top? It’s almost if she’s running to a photo shoot wearing the heels for the outfit ahead. And the bag must be plebian; she’s not showcasing it for PR effect.

    • Tatiana Luján

      burgundy suede pumps with a flimsy red top. Total disconnect.

      • lobsterlen

        To add to the disconnect burgundy suede shoes in JULY!

  • Shawn EH

    That is one messed up look; but she’s Heidi, so it doesn’t matter. She’s like Stacy Keibler that way.

  • majorbedhead

    Oh, it’s a thing. It’s a bad thing, but it’s a thing. Go to any mall, you’ll see tons of them.

  • Call me Bee

    Meh. At least she’s wearing pants with that mullet blouse.

    • lobsterlen

      Before I read your comment I just posted the same exact thing.

  • Cz

    Nothing good ever comes from mullets. Not even Chuck Norris.

    Nice tan. I’m shocked she’s hiding her tanned legs in those jeans.

  • marlie

    Aside from the length of the mullet-blouse, I really like this. Fraulein Heidi does SOOOOO much better in casual-wear than she does on the red carpet.

  • kittenwithaquip

    As flawed as the look may be, I still can’t get over how much better I like her street/casual style over her “red carpet” style. Probably because there is less risk of me seeing her labia…

  • nannypoo

    If you cut off the mullet you’d have a pretty nice shirt. I thought the same thing about Kate Hudson earlier today. Heidi’s extensions look really crappy.

  • lobsterlen

    Give Heidi credit … at least she is wearing pants with her mullet blouse.

  • mjude

    what bothers me is that is 90 + degrees & she looks like she is dressed for fall. not a fan of the shirt & tail

  • Just Me

    The shame of it is that this was really close to being a very cute outfit. That blouse is super cute…if the back of it stopped at her hips I would be in total covet-thy-clothes and sin-all-day mode. Unfortunately, I am right there with Scarlett — rising up from her knees on a hill at sunset — when it comes to the tail end of this garment.

  • housefulofboys

    I would be all over that shirt sans mullet. But I agree with others that the long jeans and suede pumps don’t look like summertime to me.

  • I liked the top until I saw the tail.

  • BrooklynBomber

    There is a thing right now called “high low” tops, shorter in the front, longer in the back. They’re all over the place. But that’s beyond high low and straight into Rick Springfield territory.

  • TheAmericaness

    Pros: 1. She’s wearing a bra 2. She actually has her legs covered, i.e. something different for once
    Cons: 1. The top, while very pretty in pattern, wasn’t hemmed in the back (get your money back Heidi!) 2. She her legs covered

  • chowwander

    Butt tongue. Avoid avoid avoid.

  • PrunellaV

    Aw, she looks fab even with the butt tongue. Thought it was Stacy Kiebler for a moment.

    • demidaemon

      I don’t think we’ll be seeing as much of Kiebler from now on.

  • SewingSiren

    The mullet is dead! Long live the butt tongue!

  • bertkeeter

    Heidi looks and is amazing!

  • It’s such a thing right now that I am hoping it’s gone by next week. Ugh. And I am sorry but those shoes are so NOT summery and just too much.

  • conniemd

    Looks more like a tail than a mullet. Feels very filine to me.

  • Louise Bryan

    “pooping fabric”

  • And what is the point of the mullet-hemmed blouse on the Kluminator anyway? If Miss Heidi feels the need to cover/camouflage her ass what hope is there for the rest of us mere mortals?


  • MsALVA

    Those mullet blouses were totally a thing in the 80’s. I had several that I wore in high school (one had Frankie Say Relax screen-printed on the back!) and they were awesome especially if you were a bit self-conscious about your butt. Everything 80’s is making a comeback.

  • psychoblonde

    Amazing! Heidi looks absolutely phenomenal completely covered up! Even with excess fabric, she suddenly looks younger and more stunning than when she barely wearing enough to cover up!

  • I saw a girl riding a Razor in six inch wedges yesterday. Walking in them doesn’t seem all that impressive now.

  • formerlyAnon

    Mullet hem or no, she always impresses me more when she’s dressed down.

  • RuthGo

    I’m breaking into a sweat just looking at her. Its been so ungodly hot in NYC that I can’t imagine why she has that much fabric on her.

  • Miss WKS

    I think yer posed to wear it without drawers….

  • Heather

    I can’t abide jeans in the summer.
