Heidi Klum In Versace – 2012 MTV EMAs

Heidi Klum, host of the 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards, donned her first of nine Versace frocks when she hit the red carpet on Sunday evening.

The first look was a teal one-sleeve gown from the Spring 2013 collection embellished with intricate gold beading, featuring an asymmetrical plunging neckline, laced up detail and thigh high slit.

It’s a lot to take in; too much in fact. Especially when you factor in the teal lace up pumps and the part-blown-out part-braid bouffant.

Nothing is to my liking here.

    So tacky. Very early 2000s, very Britney and not in a good way

    • Rita November 12, 2012 at 22:11 #

      I was just about to comment the exact same thing…

  2. Alex November 12, 2012 at 01:00 #

    This is such a tacky look. I cannot find one positive.

  3. kh November 12, 2012 at 01:01 #

    Awful, awful dress. Late 90s style at its worst.

  4. robbie November 12, 2012 at 01:12 #

    one word. TACKY!

  5. TL November 12, 2012 at 01:22 #

    It looks ok on the runway model, but horrible on Heidi Klum. She is showing way too much skin. It’s tacky

    Just one word: NO

  7. lucas November 12, 2012 at 01:38 #

    love everything, minus the pumps.

  8. EmmaWoodhouse November 12, 2012 at 01:38 #

    Absolute trashiest look of the year. The ONLY thing I like about this is the blue and gold but this dress (and those shoes) makes her look like a hooker. I don’t like to pass such judgement usually but this is the case here.

  9. TeaAtTwo November 12, 2012 at 01:44 #

    I don’t like it on the model, hate it on Heidi. It screams Tackysville circa 2002. I’m not really a fan of Heidi’s style in general.

    Hot mess!!

  12. Odette November 12, 2012 at 02:07 #

    In other words [perhaps] FC, this look is an eyeroll.

    If her hair and shoes were classy this look poooooossibly could’ve been passable.

  13. Grace November 12, 2012 at 02:08 #

    If Heidi can’t pull this off, no one can. Trashy, trashy, trashy.

  14. dee November 12, 2012 at 02:57 #

    Tacky and try-hard.

  15. Dhppy November 12, 2012 at 03:40 #

    As Nina Garcia would say, “I question her taste level”.

      I pray God finally one day there will be a model with a taste.

      Up for the moment all the runway/editorial girls make me wish I have never seen them on a red carpet.

  16. Christine November 12, 2012 at 04:04 #

    Tacky beyond belief. Them shoes…what on earth.

  17. Valerie November 12, 2012 at 04:05 #

    Poking my eyeballs with scissors would be better than looking at this dress.

  18. Mandy November 12, 2012 at 04:32 #

    No. Just no.

  19. Chloe November 12, 2012 at 05:27 #

    I think she outdid herself.

  20. Georgia November 12, 2012 at 05:31 #

    If a look like this looks bad on the model I always assume the best and think it will look better one someone with curves or someone who can fill the top half out a bit better. Since Hedi is a model with curves I’m thinking it’s definitely just a bad dress. Reminds me of JLOs Green Grammys Versace dress, but without the superstar appeal

  21. D.Arora November 12, 2012 at 06:38 #

    Way too overwhelming, wonder she is a fashion relaity show judge. those shoes with the dress. noo

  22. firien November 12, 2012 at 07:23 #

    Is that Spring 2013? At frist I thought it was some vintage piece from some late 90s collection.

  23. Kiwi November 12, 2012 at 07:33 #

    Its Versace after all.. could have worked with classier shoes and her not doing a Jolie with her leg

  24. Yeliz November 12, 2012 at 07:51 #

    I wasn’t that excited of Heidi being the host of the night and when I saw that she’s wearing this tacky Versace collection, it didn’t make it any better. Hate this and dislike almost all of her nine looks from head to toe.

  25. Ella November 12, 2012 at 08:26 #

    Gosh no. She screams “trying too hard” and it’s absolutely horrible on top of it

  26. Noemi November 12, 2012 at 08:27 #

    First of all I don’t like her style, said that this so tacky… Orrible. The shoes are not bad, but all I see is that orrible dress.

  27. DorianGray November 12, 2012 at 09:30 #

    I love all her Versace looks except this one and the orange gown. Will you post the others FC? Pleeeeeeease :-)

    • Fashion Critic November 12, 2012 at 14:43 #

      I’m really surprised at you.

      She looked horrible all night. I know you love Versace, but even you have to admit it was a bad night for them

      • Agathe November 12, 2012 at 15:57 #

        I agree, her other looks were equally appalling!

  28. sanya November 12, 2012 at 09:56 #

    No, no and no. Such a shame, because she has an amazing body and pretty face :)

  29. silkpathdiary November 12, 2012 at 10:20 #

    Lol! I always thought Hedi was totally stuck in the 80′s euro fashion zone! It’s not a shock to me – in fact I quite like her shoes :-) The rest, well, she’s at an interesting point in her life so I think when it passes, she might regret this outfit but really it’s entirely consistent Heidi :-)

  30. Jess2 November 12, 2012 at 10:37 #

    I just find Heidi extremely tacky of late, this is no exception.

  31. mia November 12, 2012 at 10:49 #

    i think i just died a little. everything about this look is just scary.

  32. Leo November 12, 2012 at 12:04 #

    YKES! She went for the overkill. Too much leg, too much tackyness, those shoes are atrocious for this look. Worst dressed of the year.

  33. callsito November 12, 2012 at 12:34 #

    What a vile, disgusting, contemptible woman!!!!!!!

    • Maz November 12, 2012 at 13:29 #

      you know her then? what a bizarre thing to say. FC likes to focus on the clothes and that’s why most of us love this site…

  34. kinella November 12, 2012 at 12:42 #

    lordy…Donatella really ruined maison Versace with her tacky taste!
    Gianno, we miss you so much :(

  35. Pati November 12, 2012 at 12:50 #

    OMG, this is way too tacky. This is what I imagine she would wear on Bernie Ecclestone’s yacht in Monaco when they first met. Yuk! Hoped she was passed that stage… Apart from the dress itself being horrible, there’s just way too much boobage, legs, curves and tan going on there, for my liking. I guess only Karolina Kurkova could pull this look off, but then again, I’m sure she wouldn’t style it with orange skin tone and those teal pumps…

    • Pati November 12, 2012 at 12:51 #

      * I meant Flavio Briatore, not Bernie. Sorry.

  36. Dolly November 12, 2012 at 13:03 #

    Urgh, so hideous….though I am not surprised Heidi chose to wear this, it’s her usual “everything out” outfit she has been sporting to years. It’s time she looks to other models of her era and take some inspiration from how they dress age appropriate

  37. wilwarin November 12, 2012 at 14:27 #

    Some looks should stay on the runway and never show up on red carpet and events… and this is one of those… I really love the dress on the model, colour and details and it would be interesting to see it in some arty editorial… but on red carpet and on heidi it’s a horror show…

  38. Emmeline November 12, 2012 at 14:40 #

    There is literally not a single thing that I like about this.

  39. Joy November 12, 2012 at 15:04 #

    Yeah this is a hot mess. It is too bad because this Versace gown is quite a dress. I think it could have been stunning on someone who would have taken the high road with it instead of just trashing it down and tacking it up. It is funny though because this dress screams Donatella.

  40. Zar55 November 12, 2012 at 15:24 #

    Heidi is one of those people who live from fashion but dont have style. Its sad to look at her fashion choices

  41. CS November 12, 2012 at 16:40 #

    WDOTW
    Worst

  42. laura November 12, 2012 at 16:56 #

    For me, this look is a complete disaster. Nothing works ! the shoes, dress and the hair … No, Heidi, no.

  43. Kiran November 12, 2012 at 17:54 #

    I don’t know why everyone is being so mean, I think this is one of Britney’s best looks to date. I’m just waiting for Justin Timberlake to show up wearing a suit and hat made out of the same fabric.

  44. justme November 12, 2012 at 18:42 #

    Has Heidi always been so tacky? This is not a good look.

  45. jones19 November 12, 2012 at 20:10 #

    That is the ugliest dress I’ve seen in a long while.

  46. jsshan November 13, 2012 at 10:16 #

    Elegant Gorgeous dress with exquisite crystal detailing. Never was there ever someone else so beautiful. While i am interested her shoes.
