Heidi Klum looks like a fancy chess piece in Versace: hot, weird or both?

Here’s Heidi Klum in a black and green Versace black a-line dress accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz bangle bracelets. I swear I saw these photos and thought that her shoes were too plain before I read this article on a blog Kaiser and I use to identify the designers, which basically says the same thing. She’s going for fashion-forward but her shoes are too conservative. Still, Heidi looks incredibly hot here. That dress is striking and looks great without being too clingy or short. I love her hair and makeup too. Remember when she used to have that terrible mom hair last year? She finally grew that out, thank goodness.

Heidi is shown in these photos at the TeenNick HALO Awards last night, and I was about to make fun of Nickelodeon for having yet another awards show, but these are actually for a good cause. They honor kids who make a difference in volunteerism and community service.

Heidi and her husband Seal are of course known for their awesome celebrity Halloween parties. They’ve worn some incredibly creative costumes in the past and this year will be no different. Heidi gave People a sneak peek at her costume and it’s going to involve a bodysuit that shows all the human musculature. This reminds me of that dude that was on PBS kids when I was growing up. (What was his name…Slim Goodbody, yay! I love the Internet.) Heidi told People that she loves to make her costumes unique. This one will involve some crazy face paint for sure.

“It’s kind of like a dead body with the first layer of skin ripped off,” she tells PEOPLE of her costume. “It’s basically like me naked.” In fact, every vein and muscle was painted on to replicate her own body structure. “All my veins and blood will all be visible,” she says with a laugh. “You don’t feel quite naked with it because it is so colorful.” As for her husband Seal, she says, “He liked it!”

Klum, this year’s UNICEF Trick-or-Treat Ambassador, admits that Halloween is her favorite holiday, and it shows: in the past several years, the party hostess has dressed up as an apple from the Garden of Eden, Lady Godiva and, in 2010, a larger-than-life superhero. So she suggests going all out when creating your own disguise.

“The amazing thing about creating your own costume,” she explains, “is that you can be sure no one else has the same.” Some of her favorites? “One guy came as a mattress one year,” she says of a past party. “It was annoying but it was an awesome costume.”

But beware: creativity is key for getting into a Klum-hosted Halloween bash. “I always put on my invitation, ‘Costume required,’ because if you’re not dressing up, you’re not getting in,” she warns.

One year, she recalls, Prince Andrew showed up — but she thought it was someone dressed as the royal. “I said to him, ‘Who are you coming as, Prince Andrew?’” recalls Klum. “He wasn’t dressed up at all and I was like, ‘How did they let you in?’” At first he looked a bit perplexed until she realized he was the real thing. Then, she says, “I had bright red lips so I smooched his face and he had kisses all over.”

See she didn’t turn a non-costumed Prince Andrew away! I wonder if a regular non-celebrity with an incredibly awesome disguise could ever get into Heidi and Seal’s bash. I bet they could.

Here are some bonus pics of Heidi and Seal outside lunch on 10-22 and at the pumpkin patch on 10-15. Seal looks good!

    I hate this dress on her – it make her look boxy. And her hair is a mess.

  2. rundee says:

    She looks a lot like Stacey Keibler.

  3. brin says:

    She looks great….love Heidi and her cute family!

  4. k says:

    I think the shoes are actually a good choice.

    I saw her walking in Manhattan last year. Her “mom” haircut looked really awesome/edgy with the tan corduroy ensemble she was wearing. I think maybe she didn’t style it correctly in some photo-ops. Anyway, I hate the new hair because it’s that cookie-cutter Beverly Hills 70s-softringlet do that every woman in LA has. So tired and faddish.

    I remember the comments on one of Heidi’s sons, I think it was Henry. Things like “that’s one godawful looking kid” etc..I don’t know were I saw it, maybe Popsugar but anyway, I hope those people ate their words because she has beautiful children who probably grow up in a very loving, supporting family! I love the Klums!
    As for her dress, it’s kind of hippie chic. I like it…

  6. Katyusha says:

    She has really pretty feet!

  7. Dee says:

    Heidi hasn’t looked this good in a LONG time. HELLO Seal :D

  8. lucy2 says:

    Don’t like the dress, but she is so pretty who cares.

  9. Diane says:

    Love this family. She looks great.

  10. Eve says:

    I think the dress is atrocious!

  11. Franny says:

    Heidi can’t do wrong in my book. She’s very German in many of her habits and ways, which as a fellow German, I love. She reminds me a lot of my mom.

  12. sosuzy says:

    Heidi is simply gorgeous no matter what. However I do not think this dress is that flattering on her but still I would love to look like her on her worst day. :)

  13. ladybert62 says:

    Well I think her hair is awful – get a decent cut and style lady.

    For being a top model (she does have a beautiful face), she wears the most god-awful clothes.

    That dress is horrible.

  14. ladybert62 says:

    Plus (I just noticed them) – I hate the tattoos on Heidi’s body and does that boy child have a tattoo?

    Is that little girl Seal’s offspring also?

  15. Pyewacket says:

    Not getting the chess piece reference.

  16. Amy says:

    Both. But she could use some more support for those baby-ravaged boobs. Especially in that halter dress photo – oof!

  17. Cait says:

    IMO Heidi’s style is always bizarre. But she’s gorgeous and always seems to be having fun in her weird get-ups, so who cares?

  18. Heine says:

    They have the cutest kids! I love the little girl’s curly little puff of hair.

    The dress is ok-Heidi likes short and tight and as long as she has the body for it, she’ll keep wearing short and tight. The shoes are very plain, I agree.

    Such a beautiful family :)

  19. Dawn says:

    Heidi Klum Samuel can do no wrong in my book! She is so pretty and she loves her hubby and her kids will be just fine. She will make sure of that.

  20. MellaYella says:

    This woman face has always been plain to me not beautiful. I just don’t get it. Her body is nice but that’s it for me and no it’s not hatin just don’t get it. I think Angelina Jolie is pretty but this woman is plain as they come for me.

  21. ShanKat says:

    Love her and her oddball German chick style.

    Also love how we hate Hilary Swank for taking money to do that terrorist’s bday party, but Seal, who was also paid to be there, gets to skip on through.

    (I actually DO love it. I hated Carly.)

  22. Jayna says:

    Heidi is a spectular person and there’s never a week that goes by that one of Seal’s album isn’t played by me. My second favorite singer of all time. Brilliant on stage. Such a great couple.

  23. Hootie Hoo says:

    My hairdresser and I were discussing Heidi’s hair yesterday. I told her, “That is the kind of hairstyle I DON’T want”

  24. Kim says:

    Absolutely awful! Hideous dress, doesnt fit her at all, her posture is terrible and her hair – yuck!

  25. Scout says:

    Love her! The dress – not so much.

  26. Love Celebitchy :) says:

    I actually LOVE her dress in that last photo…the red, white and black one!

  27. Cleo says:

    she DOES look like Stacey Kiebler AND Cheryl Tiegs

  28. crtb says:

    Love her and everything about her. She always looks great, lover her stlyle and her down to earth personality. She appears to be a great mom and a great partner. I love her and Seal as a couple.

  29. Melissa says:

    Going to go ahead and say it and get slammed. But I get told Heidi is my doppleganger. So I get leary of reading comments about her in fear that she will be insulted therefore, it’s an insult to me.

  30. Hello my family member! I wish to say that this post is awesome, nice written and include almost all important infos. I?d like to look more posts like this .
