Heidi Klum in Donna Karan at America’s Got Talent Season 8 Event

Posted on September 19, 2013

We are seriously starting to get our feelings hurt here.


Heidi Klum attends the “America’s Got Talent” Season 8 Event at Radio City Music Hall in New York City in a Donna Karan one shouldered musk/black embroidered block printed stretch silk chiffon dress and woven sandals from the Spring 2014 collection.

Donna Karan Spring 2014 Collection/Model: Karlie Kloss

Donna Karan Spring 2014 Collection

She never dressed this good to promote Project Runway, dammit. Hell, for the last couple of seasons, she stopped wearing clothes entirely to promote the show. But give a girl a network job and suddenly, she’s catwalking it on the red carpet.

We can’t hate, though. We love the look too much. It’s always fun for us, this period directly after Fashion Week, when the stars start wearing the stuff we saw walk a runway just days before; literally the exact same dresses. We still have the blurry unusable phone pics of Karlie wearing this because we haven’t gotten around to deleting them yet and here’s Heidi, serving it up.

This is so her dress and her style. Suits her to a T. Love the shoes. Love the hoops. Love it all. Hate her for wearing all that tacky-ass shit we’ve been subjected to over seven years of writing about this show. Come on, girl. Help a blogger out.

    Halelujiah! Heidi has looked awesome all year…new man or what?

    • A Shiny O’Connor

      Isn’t she letting ‘the help’ do it to her?

      • bertkeeter

        HUNEY… We ALL need help like that!

        • A Shiny O’Connor


  • MilaXX

    Is this is the kind of stuff we get to see, I hope Heidi stays on this show forever.

    • decormaven

      So true! This is great to see, especially so soon after NYFW.

  • marlie

    I think this is great on her, BUT I just can’t stand the monochromatic face that she (and a lot of other ladystars) has been sporting lately. Some color on her face, PLEASE.

  • Carleenml

    I hate it. Picasso’s beige period comes to mind. from head to toe.

  • Latin Buddy

    America’s Got Talent is a HUGE network so she probably gets a bigger budget for clothes.

  • A Shiny O’Connor

    Frigging love those shoes.

    And TLo, maybe she’s wearing a sparkly bronze tube dress underneath for a Bucks Fizz reveal. There has to be some STS (short tight shiny) in there.

  • I contend that NBC dresses her – or at least has provides the dresses to choose from and a stylist to use.

  • largishbearishAtlish

    Sorry, looking On Sale Trailer Park bed sheets to me here….bleh. maybe on a water bed?

  • I think having the shoes matching the dress is a bit much and I wish she’d gone with the catwalk red pedi.

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      Yea, I’m not a fan of the shoes here either. Plus, when she crosses her legs, but all we can see is feet, it looks like her feet are on the wrong legs.

      • ballerinawithagun

        I was hoping that someone had said that her feet were on the wrong legs, very distracting!

  • lobsterlen

    Talk about right off the runway. Same shoes too. I could very easily imagine Heidi going backstage immediately after the show and stripping the model naked and leaving her shivering but glad she still had both her kidneys.

  • Stella Zawistowski

    Bronzer’s looking a little uneven to me, or maybe that’s just the flash. But otherwise…where has this Heidi been hiding? More please!

  • NoveltyRocker

    Looks a little poolside to me. Funny enough, I think the gold jewelry is adding to the affect, not taking it into red carpet. It really does suit her though.

  • iwittmann

    I don’t like it. The beige of the dress is the same of her skin color and the matchy shoe is too much.

    • Nikko Viquiera

      Shhhhhh she might hear you and revert back to short, shiny and tacky. Quibbles dear. And baby steps!

  • formerlyAnon

    PERFECT use of those shoes.

  • Let it out

    She looks gorgeous head to toe! Was coveting those DKNY pumps from the NYFW Shoes Part 2 roundup and Heidi goes and snags them. So unfair.

  • kimmeister

    I can’t help but think that this looks like a Fashion-y Sacajawea costume.

  • ccinnc

    Safari goddess caftan. Love.

  • bertkeeter

    Heidi looks amazing in pic. I watched AGT last nite n this look read really well on TV!

  • alyce1213

    Gorgeous, but I really wish she’d lay off the spray tanning and bronzer. This dress would look even better against Heidi’s naturally lighter skin or against darker skin. It’s kind of matchy, even to her hair. But I still like it.

  • nannypoo

    Too much bronzer and not enough color in her face, but I like it anyway. She always poses with one foot turned in toward the other, pigeon-toed style, but I notice here she has her legs crossed at the ankles. Either she has to pee or she is minimizing her silhouette in this floaty, voluminous dress by changing the way she stands. It works – she looks great.

    One day you’re In, and the next day you’re Out…of Africa.

    • Nikko Viquiera

      snort!! shouldn’t have read this while eating mexican food!

    • Judih1

      You have the greatest one-liners!

    • Sonja Brisson

      Now, that’s funny! I agree, 100% — I said ‘dashiki tablecloth’ before I saw this, but this is soooo much better. She is a blonde, ridiculously genetically gifted goddess. I never understand her clothing choices. Evah.

  • Sunraya

    I don’t like it on her. Heidi is a model, but doesn’t look as good as the model in this dress. I just don’t think it is flattering at all, and looks like she rolled herself up in her bed sheets in the morning.

  • Lily-Rygh

    I don’t love everything about this — especially the overall taupeness of it, and the bland face that has been mentioned — but it’s got to be close to a personal best for our Miss Heidi because it’s not short, shiny, OR tight! Talk about stepping out of a girl’s comfort zone.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Aaackk! My eyes!

  • Bexxx

    There’s something cute about the dress going from Karlie to Heidi. Two generations of endearing VS blondes.

  • Heidi could bring much more to Project Runway than she does. He hair usually just hangs, and she leans toward wearing tight clothes, putting her sex appeal ahead of her fashion appeal. I know less about Men’s suits but I look forward to seeing Tim Gunn in his suits that fit so well. Whereas, I usually wish I could style Heidi. She usually looks as though she spent five minutes or less getting ready for the show.

  • Don’t love the melted eyeliner look but those shoes paired with that dress is perfect for her.

  • teensmom99

    At first I thought something was wrong with me that I liked what she’s wearing. I guess I’m conditioned to question her choices.

  • Kate4queen

    She looks great!

  • Trickytrisha

    That is one super happy dance dress. With the right person wearing it. No wonder Uncles are ticked off.

    • Lilak

      I sure do like it on Karlie, I tell you whut —-

  • crash1212

    WERQ it Heidi. I love all of this…ALL…and I’d knock her down to steal those shoes.

  • i was totally going for the asymmetrical top but then when the skirt echoes the exact same line of asymmetry, it’s a bit too much. it does show off those lovely sandals, though.

  • Imasewsure

    I don’t really love it since it’s got that damn one sleeve and hanky hem but since it’s embroidered it is probably gorgeous in person. And it’s much more interesting and fun than the tight and shiny she made us look at for so many years. I feel bad for Seal!!

  • Jacquelyn

    Those earrings are wonderful. I’m actually not liking the dress though.

  • bellafigura1

    Wow, guys, I saw her on the show and thought, holy cow, dashiki gone bad. I don’t know, you are being very kind. I think she looks ridiculous. Like trawling for a shred of hip or ethnic or boho, and just missing by a mile.

  • imakeart

    Love the whole look, but I’m coveting her nails.

  • DeTrop

    She looks fabulous. Love it all.

  • Sonja Brisson

    Are they kidding? this is so awful. Dashiki table cloth!

  • quiltrx

    Am I the only one who can’t unsee that the dress is the colors of her hair (tresses and roots)? WAY too monotone for me, head to toe.
    I have half of a Kors-Mad-Lib…it’s something to do with Pocahontas…but I’m too tired to come up with the other half.

  • procrastinatrice

    I am madly in love with those shoes. We wants it. It would be our precious.
    And this just might be my favorite look of hers yet.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    And herein lies my issues with the Spring/Summer collections coming out in September. This is NOT a September/early Fall dress but to wear something from the actual Fall/Winter collections would be last season. I don’t get it, I really don’t.

  • Tuneful54

    Bronze goddess, happy, and healthy. WERQ.

  • putacorkinit

    That is a superb look for her. I wish she’d publish her diet and exercise regimen. I mean, in a half page article that people can understand and don’t have to buy as a video or a franchised course.

  • Dagney

    Mrs Roper, the Studio 54 years. No, but seriously, she looks stunning.

  • George Mortimer

    I love it! Only one thing is I’d prefer her hair down. The tight ponytail just doesn’t look right. Everything else is fab though!
