Miss Heidi, serving up the goods and the glam in that perfect marriage of venue, dress and wearer that makes for great style moments. Also: she’s showing a little subtle solidarity with her fellow Project Runway refugee Zac Posen, which makes us gossipy little bitches like us wonder if he’ll be having some sort of role on her new Amazon show with Tim Gunn.
But enough behind-the-hand talk. We’re here to look at dresses, aren’t we?
Like we said, it’s right for the occasion and she’s the lady who can make it come alive, but as a design, it’s coasting on those ideas, along with some basic drama, sweep and color boldness that combine to make it photogenic and head-turning. But we have to be honest: that fabric is super chintzy-looking. And those sleeve elements are very typical Posen: dramatic, but ultimately kind of over-fussed and awkward. They’re okay from the back but the way they attach at the bust kind of ruins the line of the gown. It looks like she’s wearing deflated paper lanterns on her arms.
