We finally have proof that Heidi Klum’s tackalicious red carpet style – for which she’s justly famous – is pure calculation.

It’s not that we find it hard to believe a former Victoria’s Secret model might not have the most chic and elegant taste in the world, but after all her time in the public eye – over a decade of which she’s spent as a judge in a fashion competition – we often wondered if a lot of her more outrageously tacky looks weren’t at least partially a put-on.

Let’s assess, shall we?

Here is Heidi when she knows millions and millions of eyes will be on her:

A completely ridiculous confection that looks like she got it caught in a revolving door at some point. From the back, she looks like she’s recovering from a bad accident. The color’s not bad and the skirt is pretty in a very princessy kind of way, but the bodice is just plain ridiculous and those big poofy flowers read craft store. This is Heidi at the height of her Heidi-ism. This is the Heidi we expect to see at a major awards show.

Now here’s Heidi on a red carpet that won’t be broadcast to the entire world in seconds:

Tastefully chic. Not particularly attention-seeking. No design elements that shout “HERE IS A BOOB” or “I HAVE LONG LEGS.” Just a pretty, colorful, stained-glass-inspired gown that looks great on her. We almost don’t recognize her.

Never doubt it. Miss Lady knows exactly what she’s doing when she steps out in public in some obnoxiously attention-seeking look.
