Heidi Klum in Donna Karan at CFDA Fashion Awards: at least it’s not clinging to her?

The 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards
I wrote that title before I really examined Heidi’s dress, and she’s showing sideboob and a lot of cleavage, so it’s not exactly applicable, but for Heidi this is progress. I was recently scrolling through the photos on E!’s Fashion Police, and they called one of Heidi’s recent dresses “Typical Heidi,” adding that “boobs, beads and a giant leg slit are signatures of this supermodel’s style.” So Heidi is just showing boobs here, which again is progress. Heidi also has her own slideshow on E!’s Fashion Police titled “Heidi Klum, Most Famous Fashion Mess.” If you scroll through her past looks, this pale peach Donna Karan with the very deep v-neck and layers of fabric on the skirt looks decent in comparison.

Next here’s Emmy Rossum in a green and black backless J. Mendel cutout gown with a sheer sequin panel on the bodice. She’s not as much of a fashion miss as Heidi, sometimes Emmy gets it right, but more often than not I feel sorry for her on the red carpet. This is a case where her styling is dragging the dress down. Her hair looks like one of the shop girls from Mr. Selfridge got ahold of a crimping iron. (They used real irons on their hair back then.)

Here’s former child star Anna Chlumsky in an crop top and skirt. I don’t yet have a designer ID on this dress. The A-line baby blue skirt is really interesting and pretty with both embroidered flowers and feather details. I also like the sheer fabric across the bottom. The top looks like it’s from another dress though, and it may be. The top and skirt just don’t go together at all.

Finally we have Sophia Bush in Marchesa, of course. From the waist up, minus the giant overkill necklace, this isn’t bad. You could imagine a dress with that incredible eyelet pattern just in one contained area. The trouble is that the eyelets continue down the skirt, and it’s almost like one of those mini skirts with an overlay. It’s an assault on the eyes, but that’s Marchesa for you.

    Hate me – but I love Heidi’s approach to aging. (Minus her fashion choices…)
    She’s sure done some work here and there but you can see that she’s not going after her 20 yr old flaw- and wrinkleless self …

    • MooHoo says:

      Honestly, I think she is looking way too think at the mo and that is ageing on her.

      • Ramona Q. says:

        Yes, the bones of her breastplate are visible, she is gross thin. What is the mental block with these people they don’t see that a mere 10 pounds would make them look years younger. It baffles me.

    • aenflex says:

      My thoughts exactly.

    • Artemis says:

      She loves the sun, she’s often on holiday, boobs out and tanning the day away (see also: Aniston).

      Plus she likes her liquor (she did have a minor drunk fight with her ex-lover, her ex-bodyguard) and she also loves parties so my guess is all of those 3 things combined makes her age quicker than it should. She eats pretty clean and she exercises (sometimes OTT like her post-pregnancy bodies indicate) so It can’t be that.

      Honestly, she could look more beautiful if somebody dressed her better because I found her to be have great potential as model when she was young. She has a great face, body and personality and it pains me that she’s still considered a low-rent model. A cheap knock-off of Claudia Schiffer (who became a big thing because she looked like Brigitte Bardot).

      • Jayna says:

        On the X Factor last season, she was looking stunning every show. It was the best I’ve seen her look in a long time. She was hitting it out of the park with her outfits and makeup and hair. Even my sister said she couldn’t believe how amazing Heidi was looking.

  2. Tanguerita says:

    It’s like “who is more orange”- competition is finding place here nd Heidi is definitely winning. Has she always been so trashy?

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Omg, I tried a fake tan on my face yesterday and I win! I win! I am staying in my closet today.

    • lauren says:

      Yes she has always been so trashy. Her outfits are always hideous.
      Whats funny to me is, that she always teaches the contestants of Germanys next Top Model about the importance of how they look (outfit, hair, make up). She, of all people, teaches them about fashion. bwahahaha.

  3. aims says:

    All of them are duds.

    • Rice says:

      Agreed! Sophia looks like she’s wearing a giant plastic doily my granny used to put on the dinner table.

  4. QQ says:

    here are my two Heidi Thoughts: This woman Judges People’s Looks and Fashion for a Living…HOW?

    this isnt the most godawful thing she’s ever worn by far, in fact the color flatters her

    Emily Rossum : Worst 80’s Headbanger Milkmaid Hair EVER which is a shame cause her dress was kind of amazing

    Anna looks amazing LOVE her in VEEP

    Idc about the other one

  5. Size Does Matter says:

    I haven’t seen Anna McPosehard since My Girl. Where’s she been?

    And Heidi looks good. If I had her body I’d wear whatever I damn well pleased.

    • Tanguerita says:

      She’s been working practically non-stop for the last decade. Major case of crazy eyes though.

      • kimber says:

        I’m gonna have to imdb her then….but yeah she looks pure the joker in Batman batshit crazy!

    • taxi says:

      Anna does the meanest b****face! Is this her “normal?”

  6. eliza says:

    Ummm, did Heidi have a nose job recently because that it Michael Jackson territory she has entered.

  7. Kaylen says:

    I actually like Heidi’s dress.. And it looks comfy.

  8. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Heidi looks pretty, I think, though a tad orange, as Tanguerita said. The rest of the dresses have convinced me that I am hopelessly out of fashion, as one seems uglier than the next.

    • Tanguerita says:

      Don’t worry, you are definitely not. I almost fell of the chair when I saw the atrocities Lupita and Marion wore yesterday.

  9. Micah says:

    Man…..I have seen nothing but fashion running the gamut from blah though terrible worn at (here’s the irony) the Fashion Awards.

  10. nicegirl says:

    What is up with all of the ugly shoes, though? Good Grief

  11. kimber says:

    This whole coral craze is just not flattering an SO many women…

  12. Dawn says:

    I think Heidi looks great! I don’t find her trashy at all. Her clothes always fit her the way they were meant to be worn. Now that isn’t saying I always love what she wears. Plus I think she works hard for what she has and that is a good thing!

  13. Hissyfit says:

    Heidi looks terrible. Emmy looks great.

  14. Jegede says:

    I actually think she looks decent here. Heidi is usually a worst dressed candidate at red carpet events IMO, and she did OK here

  15. Patty Cake says:

    Heidi looks like an attempt at a myad look gone wrong, and she’s fighting to get her sea legs back. Love Heidi. Hate the fashion. I have to disagree with kaiser on the hair. I like it. It’s more a yaki-maiden look that accentuates her face and brings out her eyes. Having mixed feelings about the dress. I like it as a whole, it’s just that the black lace should have been used to trim the top v-shaped part of the dress instead of it just being one full piece like that.

  16. India says:

    I love Heidi’s dress. But, I can’t stop staring at her very obvious nose job.
