Heidi Klum in Alexandre Vauthier at the Emmys: worst look of the evening?

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum is such a gorgeous woman, and she’s a bloody supermodel who hosts a fashion show for crying out loud. As such, I just don’t understand why she cannot dress herself in a flattering manner. This Emmys dress is a prime example. Heidi wore an Alexandre Vauthier couture gown on the red carpet, and it did nothing for her figure. While I hate to sound like Guiliana Rancic, Heidi’s “girls” really needed a bit more support, and the seafoam green color was nauseating. Add the Farrah Fawcett hair on top of that, and Heidi looked like she was trying out for a role in an Olivia Newton John movie. Why does she do this to herself?

Julianne Hough also chose a similar sickly greenish tone with this strapless Georges Hobeika couture gown that featured lots of embellishment, and it reminded me of the mermaid girl from the Chicken of the Sea cans. Julianne’s makeup is very overdone here, and she should have worn her hair in loose waves. No matter though — she’s a cute girl, but she won’t be around for long!

Edie Falco opted for one of those awful Stella McCartney “optical illusion” dresses that are all the rage these past few seasons (even Kate Moss has made the mistake of wearing one). Edie remarked that it was “very comfortable,” so that’s something I guess.

Lucy Liu was my star of the evening in Versace. The dress was entirely made of metal, but Lucy remarked that “because of the way it’s distributed on the body it’s comfortable.” So unlike Edie, Lucy looked great while feeling comfy too. Lucy was also the subject of many Tweeters’ envy with some wondering whether or not she has a Dorian Grey-esque portrait stashed in her attic. She’s utter perfection.

    Heidi tries to trump Jolie by giving the double leg pose.

    Lucy wins hands down. Amazing looking woman!

    • Marmy says:

      It’s double Jolie + toddler needing a bathroom. She’s a supermodel, were there no flattering poses? Even the headshot is an awkward expression. Unfortunate.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      This reminds me of that episode of Futurerama where the Lucy Liu-bots try to kill fry after he kidnaps the head of Lucy Liu.

      She looks just like a Lucy Lui- bot in that dress!

    • Minnie says:

      she tries to copy that Jolie pose but looks live she has to pee….she should know better….

    • Minnie says:

      she tries to copy that Jolie pose but looks like she has to wee ….she should know better….

      • F5 says:

        ..also Jolie’s earrings, ever since she did that jade or whatever, every starlet is wearing dangling green.

    • Camille says:

      I like Heidi’s dress but I think she went too far with all these matchy-matchy accessories. She should wear silver shoes and white gold/diamonds jewelry.
      Julianne OMG the dress wears her. She is drowning in that gown and her hair – horrible.

    • Lishka says:

      Heidi looks like someone who is recently single trying to show the world that she’s still “got it”. But sadly comes off as a bit too much of trying hard.

      As for Lucy – Asians age well…for the most part. There is some point, somewhere between 50-60 that they suddenly drop off into looking 100!

    • the original bellaluna says:

      THAT dress, combined with that knock-kneed pose…*shudders violently* GAH.

      It looks like a girdle, with some slit tulle sewn on, and some sort of random gathered I-don’t-know-what on top.

  2. MonicaQ says:

    Ms. Lu’s dress is like a sci-fi take on a ball gown. I really like it. Then again, I have about -2 fashion sense.

    However Ms. Klum’s dress is…uh…well, I can see what she was trying to do but it just doesn’t work. One split would’ve been fine but two is a bit over working it.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Bang on about the two slits in the dress. It makes it too revealing and gives the awkward impression that the front panel (with slits on either side) was getting caught between her legs the whole evening (like a diaper). I think the boobs need more support too because only flat chested women can get away with that kind of outfit. Heidi is too curvy to go without some kind of support. Dress for your body type.

  3. Kimlee says:

    Lucy was best dress hands down.

    Heidi look like she was trying way to hard but the color was really great on her.

  4. Dr. Greg L. says:

    Heidi Klum looking good in the green dress. B/w I would like to know what she has written on her right arm.

  5. Jag says:

    Lucy Liu is a goddess and this proves it. She once said in an interview that she doesn’t believe in tugging and pulling on her skin, so never would be one to go for a facial. Whatever she’s doing, she looks amazing! Those seafoam green dresses are awful.

    • Me Too says:

      Find it funny how quick everyone is to jump on the Nicole Kidman crazy Botox lady bandwagon when the first thing I thought when seeing the pics of Liu was God she’s doing the Botox/filler thing too. That’s not a natural look folks. Love the dress though.

      • Joanna says:

        yeah i agree..she’s def doing botox and maybe fillers. but it looks good. if i had the money, i’d be tempted to do botox and maybe even fillers. i’m 36 and over the last year, my face has gotten so skinny. i hate it. my body’s banging, but my face is too skinny. now i understand the comment, that when you get older, you choose between your a*s or your face.

  6. dcypher1 says:

    It looks like fancy hooker gown, like sumthing c. Stodden would wear yuck. U think she would support a designer whos been on her show. she has a great body but its like shes trying to show it off.

  7. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I love that seafoam color, shame that it’s wasted on crappy dresses.

    I heard it was crazy hot out there last night-is that why everyone looks so shiny?

    I’m not a huge fan of Lucy Liu’s dress-maybe for the MTV Music awards but I don’t really like it for the Emmys. She’s a pretty woman though.

  8. Eve says:

    Lucy Liu was one of my (two) favourites.

  9. Kaye says:

    Lainey (who is Chinese) says Chinese women never age until they’re about 50, and then it hits them overnight.

  10. yael says:

    dear god i want to know lucy liu’s secret.

    spill, woman!

  11. dorothy says:

    Heidi looks cheap and tacky. Love Falco’s dress.

  12. tru tru says:

    When I look at Julianne, all I can think about was Ryan’s face when he did not win for reality show host or whatever…

    total queen of mean look, LOL

    and Julianne kinda shrunk down in her seat kinda or faded out LOL

  13. Happymom says:

    Doesn’t Heidi ever listen to Michael Kors on the show? You can show your boobs, or you can show your legs (but just one-dear god, woman) but if you’re doing both: CHEAP and TAWDRY.

  14. ladybert62 says:

    Klum looks trashy in that dress – she has the worst taste in clothes for someone who is a model.

    The other dresses are equally horrible.

  15. emmieapricot says:

    Lucy looked amazing. Her dress is powerful and her understated hair/makeup balance everything out.

  16. Marianne says:

    I don’t like Heidi’s dress, but far from the worst. Lena Heady takes the cake. I liked Lucy Liu’s dress on TV, but not in pics.

  17. Koko says:

    Then I must be the only one who liked Heidi’s dress (lovely color despite the poor photo chosen) and hated Lucy Lui’s.

    • megan says:

      Nope, I did too. I loved that aqua color on her. I thought it complimented her tan nicely. I don’t think her boobs need any support, I like how “natural” they look here. I did think the leg slits were too much. And as far as Lucy Liu’s…I’m going to have to agree to disagree with Bedhead and the majority of other commenters on that one. I actually had to read the sentence where she said this was her favorite look twice.

  18. kingkayski says:

    For me Lucy Liu is the best dressed in last nights Emmy.The hair is perfect,the fitting of the dress is just right for her body.

  19. mia girl says:

    Her face and hair look amazing, the fit was perfect… but all I can think about when I look at Lucy Liu’s dress is the robot Halloween costume that I am currently working on for my son.

  20. Melissa says:

    Absolutely love Lucy’s dress. Not sure I buy that it’s that comfortable, but who cares, I’m not the one wearing it.

  21. Sirsnarksalot says:

    Lucy’s dress looks like a computer’s motherboard. And for the love of god, can everyone stop spray tanning already?!

  22. TG says:

    If Heidi hadn’t left Seal I would have loved her look but this just reaked of deseration to me. Look at me see how hot I am. Ugh. I loved Julianne Houghs hair but her cheeks were over rouged. Julianne’s dress was ugly. She is a very cute girl but always looks tacky on the run carpet. I wonder if she embarrasses Ryan. You would think he could get her some better dresses and stylists. I still find them weird together even though I want to believe in them. Eddie Falco’s dress would have been somewhat interesting if I hadn’t already seen it on a dozen stars previously. Can these ladies not command couture straight off the runway? I want a pixie cut so bad. Ginnifer Goodwin is so adorable.

  23. SantaLucia says:

    I really don’t see your point

    She looks perfect and dress is amazing, especially the color of the dress

    Just because it isn’t your cup of tea no need to be so hard on her (like always)

  24. Christina says:

    Lucy is always beautiful, but she kinda looks like a human disco ball. Heidi’s dress is ok, but the color is gross. Julianne does look like a mermaid. I don’t know what is worse, the hair or the dress??

  25. Dotty says:

    The top pic looks like Heidi is pissing herself! I inexplicably like the dress tho.

  26. Chicagogurl17 says:

    Love the bottom of Julianne’s dress and nothing else. Lucy and Kerry both looked smoking in silver this year. So incredibly jealous.

  27. JudyK says:

    Why in the hell is Heidi standing there with her legs a mile apart…dress is HIDEOUS, pose is HIDEOUS…she looks like $hit, not to mention totally classless.

    In addition to that dress looking like it was designed by a grade-schooler, it’s the ickiest shade of green I’ve ever seen.

  28. Happy21 says:

    Jeez. In that top photo Heidi looks like she’s going to squat in the woods or something. I don’t mind the colour of her dress but nothing else. She also doesn’t look like she’s smiling from her heart. She usually has crinkly eyes when she really smiles. Either she’s had some ‘tox’ or she’s not smizing.

    Julianna Hough looks GOD AWFUL! When I saw her I was just like UGH what has she done. I’m so glad she’ll go away soon…

    Lucy Liu, Lucy Liu how I love you! Her dress was AMAZING. The best of the night!

  29. Jen says:

    Thought the color of Klum and Hough’s dresses was fresh like the yellows, but not as overdone. Double leg-o-doom, however, is not physically possible to pull off without peeing yourself apparently.
    Liu gets 5 stars for being unique AND very pretty, although robotic.

  30. Blue says:

    :( I like Julianne’s dress. I like Heidi’s as well if it were only one slit and she had some support for her boobs, the way it is now (last night) it looks trashy.

  31. Jayna says:

    Heidi looks cheap and with a color like styrofoam green you don’t do matchy-matchy from head to toe with that color. She looks like a K-Mart Special.

  32. Alexis says:

    Lucy is so pretty and fierce. I am boycotting the American Sherlock because it’s ridiculous that she’s Watson, rather than Sherlock.

  33. Tanya says:

    i’ve never thought Heidi was gorgeous… the dark, omnipresent roots when she should really be a brunette…. she always looks sort of ‘greasy’ to me, not sure if that makes sense. Edie looks phenomenal with her hair though…so much younger looking wearing it longer like that..!

  34. Kiyoshigirl says:

    Heidi’s pose belongs in a fashion magazine, not on the red carpet. It looks like she’s preparing to sit on the toilet.

  35. HappyJoyJoy says:

    Even my six year old daughter commented on Lucy’s dress. It looked amazing on stage, I bet it looked better in person. As for Heidi, it’s like… why do you always try so hard? And Edie Falco’s dress I’m sorry I LOVED IT. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea but I absolutely loved it. I wish she would have trimmed the bangs, though. Julianne Hough looks like a beauty school project gone wrong. Terrible make up, poorly shaped finger waves and the wrong time era for the dress. (I think she was trying to go 20′s) She was totally trying to channel Charlize at the Oscars when she won for monster. It’s tragic, really.

    • Stephanie2585 says:

      Couldn’t agree more! I thought Edie looked incredible and I thought her dress was perfect on her. She looked like a million bucks.

  36. Dawn says:

    Count me among the NO’s on this look. I like her hair and I like the color of the dress but something is off with the makeup and the dress is simply awful.

  37. F5 says:

    New mascot for Green Giant D:

  38. mln89 says:

    lucy liu looks exquisite.

  39. Anon73 says:

    In addition to Heidi dress / pose disaster, her hair has seen better days. Not liking the color job on her. Bet she is wishing at least maintained a “hair” relationship with her 1st husband Ric Pipino who is a a famous hair dresser ;-)


  40. PinKPunk says:

    Julianne Hough is only 24!!! I looked it up because I wondered if she was over 35 or not, OMG! I think she is gorgeous, but she looks 10 years older than she really is.

  41. Cait says:

    Heidi Klum has the worst fashion sense. It’s ironic, really. That first pic is so unflattering, like she’s about to pop a squat.
    I like the color of Julianne’s dress but that’s about it.
    I weirdly love Lucy Liu’s gown but then again she is always stunning.

  42. citygirlsf says:

    I love the way Julianne looks here! Her hair may be up, but it’s not severe. It looks soft and pretty, and her makeup is perfect.

  43. Marie Antoinette Jr. says:

    Heidi’s dress would be nice for a beach wedding. But that “do”, ugh: Calling 1978, we found your hair!

    Lucy looked amazing. That dress was awe inspiring. Just perfect.

  44. Diva says:

    Lucy looks like a disco ball

  45. april says:

    In the first photo she’s posing horribly. I like the color of the dress. Her hair doesn’t look good. I don’t like the way it is parted. Doesn’t she usually wear a middle part?

    Julianne’s dress is pretty and the color is great. Her eyebrows look atrocious.

  46. the original bellaluna says:

    I can deal with the aqua colour (at least that looks good on her), but the rest of that mess is unforgivable! How is it that such a beautiful woman can look SO BAD?

    Lucy is just gorgeous, pretty much no matter what she wears.

  47. lucy2 says:

    Lucy looks great. Few people could pull that off, but she did.
    Heidi’s would be so much better without all the slits and transparency in the skirt, and more support up top.
    Julianne looks like a circus clown.

  48. kosmos says:

    Yeah, I don’t get Heidi’s look, although I love her, she seems like a good person. I love the color on her, totally…but the top is hanging too low. We could have done without the unclassy leg shot…hey, we know she has beautiful legs…she doesn’t have to stoop to this. One more bad: the earrings are gawwwwdy. I don’t care for the dresses on any of the other ladies here, sorry. Love Heidi’s the most, but she needs a few adjustments.

  49. pinchofsalt says:

    Heidi looks ridiculous. Lucy Lui – a dress that fits! A look that flatters her! She looks beautiful.

  50. Jill says:

    Legs open and awaiting the next bodyguard. :P

  51. df says:

    damn, some of these women are not aging well…
