Time once again to judge the tackiest trio of judges in reality television, darlings! For weeks now, these ladies have been silently going to war – a war for your attention. Heidi, the one with the appearance of fashion bona fides (“THE APPEARANCE OF”), has wisely – and suprisingly – chosen a relatively demure and low-key (“RELATIVELY”) approach, while Miss Tyra, Mistress of Self-Promotion, has largely relied on her smizing skills and inherent shame deficit to see her through. Mel B just dresses cray.
This is pretty horribly Kardashia-adjacent, for which we should be yelling at her. But as a ridiculous bit of self-promotion and attention-whoring, we can’t really say she’s doing it wrong. It’s sort of like the Halle Berry situation yesterday: if she can pull it off, maybe we should just respect her abilities and sit down. It’s not chic. It’s not stylish. It’s not anything but tacky-ass. But it’s Totally Tyra.

Why Frau Teitenscheine*, when did you take your vows?
Loath as we may be to admit it, this is actually pretty good hostess-wear. It’s too “themey” and coordinated for a real-world ensemble (not to mention tacky), but as a form of televisual stagewear and Klum-specific branding, you can’t beat it.
*Hat tip to the Bitter Kitten who came up with that spelling.
She’s a lingerie superheroine. She probably thought that sounded cool, but it really doesn’t.
