    Why, this is downright demure for Heidi!

    • FuhUgh

      I like it! She looks rather orange, but at least it’s not cut down to there and up to here!

    • FridaStaire

      Hasn’t she worn this before? Is this an eco-wear-it-again phase?

  • Susan Velazquez

    I’m glad to see that they used left over material from the dress to make her earrings. #RepurposeRecycle

    • R.A.

      And shoes… and eye shadow…

      • TiffanyJWhite

        I just got paid

  • decormaven

    Tight and shiny and tan- that’s our Heidi.

  • RussellH88

    It looks like carpet owned by someone who doesn’t bother to clip their pets’ claws.

    Edit: That third picture of her looks freakishly like a mannequin.

    • halleygee

      Agree! Was thinking she looks like Tan & Sparkly Barbie in that one.

      • Snarkmeister

        It’s the eyes. Her eyes are very “dead” looking in pictures 2 & 3. Damn, Heidi, didn’t you ever learn how to SMIZE?

  • http://viridianpostcard.blogspot.com/ viridian61

    Looks like pulls in the fabric of the skirt – but I am sure that is part of the fabric and intentional. Also, perhaps too much makeup on the inner corners of her eyes.

  • greyhoundgirl

    Yes–got climbed by her kitten. Face and hair are beautiful, though.

  • @Biting Panda

    Oddly enough, I think I’d like it shorter.

    Either way, I don’t get the ripped materials look, unless it’s a great pair of broken in boyfriend jeans.

    • RussellH88

      Especially since the lining isn’t her skin tone, so it doesn’t even have this naughty peek-a-boo effect to it that it has on the model.

      • kerryev

        I feel like a lining in a decent color could make me like this dress. This Band-Aid shade is particularly foul.

    • Gatto Nero

      The idea of conveying ripped fabric in the beading is more interesting in concept than in execution.

  • Jenn Elting

    Her dress was eaten by moths.

    • Ginmaru

      Glittery moths! Big, honking glittery moths with tiny teeth and lethal feet and….is it time to go home yet? I think my weekend may have already started without me.

  • MilaXX

    It’s a generic glittery towel dress. I don’t mind the overly matchy shoes, but the ring is tacky and the earrings are hiddy. In other words, it’s a perfect Heidi look.

    • @Biting Panda

      It’s a perfect Jenn Anniston look too. They are both in a hot lady style rut.

      • jen

        Im just relieved we didn’t get the ususal dose of Hiedi ‘boobage’, as she so classily puts it.

      • CT14

        should have read first. Just posted the same thing.

    • http://shoespace.tumblr.com/ Beryl

      It looks like it’s unraveling as we speak!

  • http://fibonaccisequins.storenvy.com/ Danielle

    I love that cocktail ring, though.

    • Kitten Mittons

      Nice of you to stay on the positive side :)
      I lurve that ring, as well.

    • RussellH88

      I like it, but it looks like a tiny covered serving tray, like you lift up the lid and reveal a pile of Turkish delight.

      • CPK1

        yummy, how cool would that be!

        • RussellH88

          It would be a cool idea for breath mints.

      • boweryboy

        Or a pile of Bolivian marching powder.

        • Ginmaru

          A modern twist on a Renaissance poison ring?

  • PinkyK

    I wanna yank the dress up; just grab it and yank it!

    • homespunner

      I think that’s called a hoick in TLo land. Yank? Hoick? Either way I agree completely!

  • Anna

    This falling-apart beaded dress again? I’m surprised she didn’t go for the mini version that J-Lo wore.

    ETA: For a moment, I thought the caption read “Christian Louboutin Gwyneth sandals,” which gave me a good chuckle because of course a pair of Gwyneth sandals would be painful.

    • poggi

      Gwyneth sandals would also be smarter and more sophisticated than your average sandal; they would be vegan; and they would be sold in different “sizes” but they all be the same actual size as Gwyneth’s feet because, really, isn’t that the size your feet should be.

      • Anna

        Lol. Flawless.

      • jen

        Ha ha!

  • SewingSiren

    Too much tan.

  • kim bunchalastnames

    the dress is good. the outfit is a sparkly shoe too far.

  • marlie

    I see she borrowed Jennifer Aniston’s short, tight and shiny bath towel.

    • @Biting Panda

      great minds…..

      (I hadn’t read my way down to you, yet)

  • Gatto Nero

    Well, there are no private body parts hanging out, so that’s a plus. And the mani-pedi is so tame for her.
    The sparkly shoe and earrings are too much, though. And she’s seriously bronzed.

    • @Biting Panda

      Her manicure is nearly always my favorite touch of any Heidi look. I wish I could get away with her talons.

  • hughman

    Yeah… one kitten away from a “Hang In There!” poster.

  • Introspective

    am i wrong that while all the bk critiques leveled here are true that there’s still something gorgeous about how she looks here?

    • jen

      No, you’re right, she does look good.

  • Froggae

    Eeets not zexy enough. I feel like ze skirt should be a little shorter and ze top should be a little lower and her boobs should be a little higher.

  • Glam Dixie

    She stole Jennifer Aniston’s glittery bath towel while still being 100% Heidi.

  • boweryboy

    Didn’t JLo recently wear this dress too? It’s equally as bad on Klum. LOVE the cocktail ring.

    • @Biting Panda

      Long sleeved and shorter, but yes. She did the glittery shoe too.

  • smh4748

    Informal poll: If Heidi’s skin were matched to a Crayola crayon shade, which would it be?

    a) Neon Carrot
    b) Macaroni and Cheese
    c) Atomic Tangerine
    d) Mango Tango

    • Ginmaru

      May I add
      e) Oompah Loompah Pumpkin
      f) International Distress Orange

      • demidaemon

        Michael Kors?

        • Ginmaru

          Oh! True. Would be be redundant to say “Michael Kors orange”?

  • Terri Terri

    That under-eye highlighter is giving me Loni Anderson in WKRP in Cincinnati

  • StrandedFashionista

    Deconstruction is one thing, but when your dress looks like it’s had a brush with an angry cat, you’ve gone too far.

  • smh4748

    It’s the perfect look for the time-crunched supermodel, who needs a dress that can do double duty during both her weekly volunteer shift at the animal shelter AND transition easily to nighttime red carpet. Well done, Kaufmanfranco, for filling that void in the style world.

  • ChelseaNH

    Showing that she does look better in silver than gold.

  • MaryMcClelland

    I know they’re “in” but the 80’s press-on nail look grosses me out. GAAAAH

  • Mr. J.

    Everything here is just….perfect. You know, “Heidi” spelled backwards is: perfect.

  • formerlyAnon

    She looks so much better, IMO with a longer hemline. It mitigates the bath towel effect and makes it easier to take the tight and shiny.

  • Yoshio

    All I can see is that ring – I want it.

  • shopgirl716

    Jennifer Aniston mode. Big time.

  • somebody blonde

    Wow, that is not a good color for her.

  • http://jahnapeloquin.tumblr.com Jahna Peloquin

    It looks like her dress got snagged on the way to the event.

  • J.W.

    Those are some long fingers. Mine are like Vienna sausages…

    • alyce1213

      She has the most elegant hands.

  • Paula Pertile

    Did she clawed by a cat on the way over? Otherwise, its not bad.

  • ktr33

    Oh, jesus, a _distressed_ sequined dress. Is that what makes it “interesting”?

  • KayEmWhy

    Tacky, Tacky, Tacky! (In the voice of MK)

  • Chattygal

    For Heidi, the length is downright demure.

  • B_C_J

    This is a perfect example of tanning spray addiction. The limp hair is not doing much for the look either.

  • Man Dala

    She seriously needs to tone down the tan / bronzer / makeup. She’s starting to look borderline Donatella.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    aber naturlich, Fraulein Klum. Right in Heidi’s wheelhouse.

  • MM4321


  • understateddiva

    Ok, the hangy sequins are weird. But this is the second time in a row that she has shown up somewhere in something that was not STS (short tight shiny!) 2 outta 3 and I’ll take it! I am ready for the classier (but still fun) Heidi!!

  • ‘Becca’lise Deveaux

    I don’t know why but the backside of really long nails freaks me out.

  • livesarah

    Distracted by all the orange.

  • Bonnie Blue

    This is very covered-up for her and I don’t think it looks too tight. I think she looks pretty good, although on second glance I can see the fabric effect and I don’t really like it. In the picture where she’s waving, she looks like she should be one of those women on The Price is Right (called Barker’s Beauties or something?), gesturing at a prize. But I like the overall effect. We’ve seen so much worse for her!

  • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

    I believe this is the sparkly and short, beaded towel version of a shmatta. Those rips are dumb,

  • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

    Now THIS is the Frau Klum we know and love! No more of that demure and age appropriate and understated stuff! How much do I HATE the threads of the dress hanging at the hem???

  • sk8tfan

    I just watched this tv competition “Skin Wars” and the prize this week was $5000 of body glitter. I didn’t know Heidi was a contestant!

  • http://stylishsass.blogspot.com/ TAKippy

    Heidi invented “of course.”

  • Tee

    Looks like Heidi fell asleep in Michael Kors tanning bed.

  • Diane_G

    Old sequined bath towel.

  • LibKat

    It’s time for Spray Tan Anonymous. She and Lea Michele would be charter members.

  • elemspbee

    silver bejewelled bath towels, on sale this Labor Day weekend at your nearest (fill in the blank).

  • Jessie Melcher Brown

    It seems like it needs more of a corset built inside for support. The girls seem flattened.

  • CT14

    She’s wearing a Jennifer Aniston sequined bathtowel!

    Short, tight, and shiny!

    (now that I’ve read the comments, I see I’m not the first to notice…)

  • sisterb67

    Wait, something’s wrong here… there is no danger of us seeing Heidi’s fishwhistle in this “short” dress. My god, have we entered some sort of alternate universe where up is down, cats and dogs live together in harmony, and a thousand monkeys actually composed all of the great works of literature? MADNESS, I say!

    • Qitkat

      Now there is a term to replace good china!

  • Richard

    Did she run through a forest to get to this red carpet, and get her dress snagged on all the trees ?

  • titaness25

    I don’t mean this unkindly, but in the fourth picture, she’s giving off a distinct whiff of Donatella. Her skin looks a smidge leathery. I despise that ring so much she should immediately throw it away in my direction.

  • demidaemon

    It’s a Heidi dress that only eschews the tight on the lower half.

  • CommentsByKatie

    It looks like she stole one of Jennifer Aniston’s sequin bath towels and slashed it up a bit.

  • MannahattaMamma

    She has officially become Malibu Barbie, with poseable arms & legs. Malibu Babs had skin that exact shade.

  • Qitkat

    Are unhemmed dresses now a “thing”?
    Explains a lot of PR judging!

  • musi_

    all silver errrr thang. no heidi, no.

  • TiffanyJWhite

    I just got paid


  • KT


  • Katherine Leay

    all silver, is too much. otherwise, she looks ok.

  • bdubs9

    of course

  • NBG

    Step away from the tanner, Heidi.

    As for the dress, so beat up dresses that look like they came from the “reduced” section of the consignment shop are now a thing? Who knew?

  • Judy_J

    My goodness….not too short, not too tight, but plenty shiny.
