For the longest time, we convinced ourselves we cover Heidi so much because of our longstanding fondness for Project Runway and because she was literally the first celebrity whose public style we wrote about. We basically cut our teeth as bitchy celebrity style bloggers on her sometimes hilarious hosting ensembles.
Sure, that’s part of the reason we cover her so often, but to be perfectly honest, the real reason is a lot simpler and a lot more practical.
She almost always gives us something to look at. We can count on one hand the number of times she ever bowled us over with her chicness, but the number of times she delighted us with her boldness is simply uncountable.
As for the dress, we liked it quite a bit more when Ruth Negga wore it, but Heidi’s not doing too badly with it, all things considered. The longer sleeve and heavier shoe looked better on Ruth, but the high slit looks great on Heidi. We would “correct” this with black lace-up sandal flats and a big honkin’ cocktail ring, though. We’re surprised that both women did okay with such a difficult dress, considering how far apart they are in looks and style preferences. We’d never say this frock is universally flattering, but apparently, it’s easier to work than we originally thought.
