Heidi Klum in Monique Lhuillier: over-styled or lovely?


I tend to think Hamptons Magazine should have simply closed up shop for the decade once they had ragged-ass Chelsea Handler as their cover girl and had to hire a team of Photoshop wizards to make Chelsea look like a “beachy” hard 50. But the magazine is still going, and Heidi Klum is their new cover girl, so they threw her a party. Heidi wore this Monique Lhuillier for the party and… I have to admit, I usually don’t care for Lhuillier. Her wedding dresses are fine – at best, lovely and feminine, and at worst, knock-offs of Vera Wang. But I usually don’t care for Lhuillier for regular cocktail and evening attire. But this dress is rather pretty. It’s event-appropriate, flattering and age-appropriate for Heidi.

I do have two complaints though. One, the “optical illusion” of the asymmetric lines emphasizes Heidi’s stomach. I’m not bashing Heidi for anything (okay, she could have worn Spanx), but a good dress shouldn’t draw attention to your stomach. My second complaint: WTF is with Heidi’s styling? Who did her makeup, the Duchess of Cambridge?!? Look at that crappy eyeliner job. All in all, I’d say it was a fashion win for Heidi, but in the future she might want to be less matchy-matchy and go easy on the eyeliner (especially for the bottom lids).

    I like the dress – but the hair and makeup are horrible as they make Heidi look quite old and wrinkly.

  2. anti says:

    LOVE everything but the makeup and hair.

  3. Quest says:

    Make up is horrible. Heidi needs better coverage for the breakouts she is getting.

  4. gee says:

    I like the dress and shoes individually, but not together. Her hair doesn’t look great so severe, and I don’t like the makeup overall. I do think she looks great not going the waxen botox route. Natural looks great on her.

  5. really says:

    Don’t like the dress, love Heidi!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Eve says:

    I like the dress but the make-up is aging her terribly.

  7. Blue says:

    ooooo shiny. those close up pics of her are not flattering.

  8. Kaboom says:

    As usual I’m not feeling her.

  9. Elizabeth says:

    love the dress but the hem could be a few (4″) shorter. Heidi has great legs – why so conservative? The make up isn’t flattering – again, she is beautiful but not in these photos. Re : her stomach – she’s had 4 kids & still looks like that. She is a goddess to me!

  10. Firecracker says:

    Love that dress! Black heels would’ve been better, and not a fan of the slicked back hair.

  11. tr says:

    I’m sorry to mention but her wonky eye looks more visible now when she lost weigh and that (weight) makes her look old.

    As of her sense of style – she never had one.

  12. serena says:

    Oh god her hair..

  13. Sloane Wyatt says:

    Heidi is giving Granny Clampett a run for her money.

  14. Pyewacket says:

    Her skin is awful.

  15. Calli Pygian says:

    Heidi usually looks great, but… jewelry & shoes too matchy-matchy & over the top. Hair & maquillage too severe. With her recent weight loss ( she said she’s a runner?) it ages her.

  16. the other mel says:

    I never think Heidi looks pulled together, considering her status as a Supermodel and host of Project Runway and I always thought she was overrated. But I saw her last September at the Mercer Hotel after Fashion’s Night Out and she looked breathtakingly beautiful — changed my opinion entirely. Oddly, her photos do not do her justice.

  17. Oi says:

    She kinda looks like Celene Dion in the first pic…..not a good look

  18. K-MAC says:

    um, she’s had 4 kids, what stomach?

  19. GeekChic says:

    The dress is cute. Why in the world should she have worn Spanx? She doesn’t even remotely need them. Good grief, if you think she needs Spanx, then the rest of us have no hope!

  20. Ron says:

    I concur. Outfit is great, hair and makeup not so much.

  21. Julie says:

    I like Heidi alot but for someone who has talked about being too skinny adding years to your face, she went out and did it. Shame.

  22. lucky says:

    I think she looks like Goop in the first pic.

  23. Kimbob says:

    Yes, I agree w/the assessment, but also agree w/@GeekChic.

    Also, what up w/the slicked-back hair? She’s wearing this style a great deal lately, & although it’s novel, it SUX.

    This hairstyle, (I guess kind of trying to convey sleek sophistication?), I don’t like. This hairstyle is appropriate at a swimming pool only!

  24. Happymom says:

    I think Spanx are the handiwork of the devil. Love the dress-makeup/hair: not so much.

  25. BellaLuna says:

    love the dress, shoes, bracelet, earrings, all of it

  26. Micki says:

    I don’t really think she needs Spanx.I’ll be only too happy to have her Spanx-less stomack after my second kid.

  27. fannomore says:

    hair and makeup way too severe for a gorgeous woman she is taking on a cold hard look wtf? spanx are you nuts?
    she’s a stick figure as it is! love those shoes though the dress is a meh

  28. Maritza says:

    I like the dress, hate the makeup and hair but I love Heidi.

  29. melissapedsrn says:

    I tell ya, that close up (second picture) looks like something that comes out of your closet at night. Yikes!
    But she has a heck of a body, after 4 kids…

  30. Sara says:

    Ladies, this is what happens when you die your hair year after year, it ends up looking gross..

  31. bagladey says:

    The dress is gorgeous and her body looks really good in it but everything else is awful: The hair, the wrinkles, the make-up, the earrings, the nail polish and the shoes.

  32. Louise says:

    The first time I looked at the first picture I thought I was looking at her panties.

    There’s something not right with the dress around her stomach area.

  33. Liar liar says:

    She is not 38. She looks at least 48.

  34. Violet says:

    I don’t mind the dress, but you’re right about the makeup. It doesn’t help that Heidi seems to have lost weight, which makes her look gaunt and older.

  35. Jana says:

    Heidi is looking her age now, late thirties. And every time she wears her hair back severely it does her no favors. She needs softness around her face and I like her sunny blonde, not the darker lowlights she puts in sometimes.

  36. itstrue says:

    Wow, what happened to her magic wrinkle remover??

  37. Patricia says:

    I think she’s lost a little too much weight.

  38. Mark says:

    I can’t believe some of the comments I’m reading on here.

    You guys, Heidi Klum is a national treasure.
