Heidi Klum Photo Shoot for Vogue Germany



Frau Seal was doing a little posing on Rodeo Drive the other day for a Vogue Germany editorial and we've got the pics. Now, it wouldn't be fair to critique her looks here because these are just paparazzi shots and not what the final editorial will look like. We will say that most of these looks are not really the kinds of looks that Heidi wears well. We'll just have to wait for the editorial to come out before we render our final judgment.

I KNEW IT! (c) Dave Chappelle

I knew she would pick the short, tight and shiny redscale Versace dress!


Yow! Those McQueen boots are bananas!
I kind of like the Vuitton dress, but without that poodle bag/thing.


It just goes to show anything is possible. The right photographer can can make even Heidi Klum look bad. (I've no doubt the editorial pics will be quite different, though I'm sick of that red Atelier dress.)


She's definitely getting a little long in the tooth for this sort of thing.


German Vogue is using some of the same dresses for their editoral as the Paris Vogue did. Do you think they just passed them on, after all they are worth many thousands of $.
I wonder if the back of the red sequin dress is unzipped? Sometimes they do that to accommodate a celebrity model.
She is definitely not a high fashion model, she never was. She is a good sport though, isn't she?


I have to say that der Frau is starting to look a bit "Kim Cattrall" desperate. You know, the aging sexpot that has trouble finding the graceful note and moves into 'cougar' territory ?


I, too, am sick of the Atelier red dress.

And in those McQueen boots, all Heidi needs is some white make-up, big hair and she can rock and roll all night and party everyday.


I do not get why that red Versace dress is everywhere. There were so many pieces from that collection that were to-die-for and that one is just sort of meh. The poodle bag is insane...


Sewing Siren,

I'm wondering about that myself. Are these the top designers that the whole world must watch? If so, why bother publishing a second German Vogue. Just translate the French one in every language and be done with it.

I mean, what about the top German designers? Wouldn't it have been big fun to have Heidi Klum model Wolfgang Joop's spring line? After all, he said she was "too fat" for the runway!

I can just see her now, posing in his boots with a real poodle next to her, lifting it's leg, about to pee...


what in hell is that weird poodle necklace?


What is with all of the Heidi is getting too old talk?

35 is old? Well, I'm not there yet, but I WISH I could look as georgeous as her at that age.


In the words of TLo:

"You bitches are awfully fickle"


and its gorgeous. Yeah, I can't spell.

:0)

She's getting old FOR A MODEL. Heidi still looks amazing, but when she's up against girls 15 to 20 years younger than her...

Oh Man - I thought it was a purse!
If it IS a purse...what in the hell is that weird poodle shoe purse!

With all due respect, Heidi still leaves some of the young'uns in the DUST.

And I don't see 35 as old for a model. I know its not the "standard" and she's past the average age, but Iman and Christie Brinkley can still attract folks to the fashion tents and the bitches are knocking on 60, so I just don't get the Heidi is old comments. Just my little ol' opinion, here.

I'd rather see her than the jailbait, anyday. :0)


Heidi looks great....not so much the wardrobe for the shoot, though.
I'm tired of the red pack 'o giant sequins, and I hated that black and white Christian Dior suit from the first minute I saw it in the Vogue farm buddies and cheese shoot. The "dog" purse Vuitton dress is cute, the "dog" purse is not.


honesty.not.pc

I like it all...except for that dog/shoe purse. That thing is fricking stupid.

Don't tell Stephanie Seymour (40), Linda Evangelista (44), or even 77 year old Carmen Dell Orefice (modeling 62 years-- though she had to go back to work recently because of that POS B. Madoff). That must be 1 well kept secret. They're all in high demand for their modeling services!

Do we really have to label each other as not being able to do something because of our age, race, sex, etc?
Can't we just celebrate beauty in its every varied incantation?

None of these women are in "high demand" for their modeling anymore. Nor is Christie Brinkley or even Iman.


Heidi looks lovely, as usual. Unfortunately, the outfits don't do her, or themselves, any favors.


I love Heidi but she can't pull these looks off. Just look at the runway shots.


I'm with Ally. Why the red scales everywhere? I want to know why no one is showing off that fancy mint green number (probably my favorite).


For clarification sake, it is not that Heidi is too old, it is that she is beginning to look too old for some of the looks she is wearing. You will never see Iman or Carmen trying to dress like a 20 year old. I just think that by pushing the clothing-age envelope, Heidi is actually making herself look older. Toning down the overt SEX of some of here looks would let her natural beauty be the story...not the desperate looking "I'sm still sexy" vibe.

If you will notice, the Dior outfit on the runway, has a very demure neckline. On Heidi it is open to expose maximum cleavage. The Vuitton dress is slit to the hip on Heidi and has no side slit on the runway model. These changes are not age appropriate for Heidi, not fashion necessary (or the designers would have done them themselves) and tend to make her look desperate...and needlessly despearate, because she IS a very beautiful woman.

So having current ad campaigns w/ such luxury lines as Rolex, Ferragamo, Prada, L'Oreal, et al is not "high demand"?

OK.
Thanks.

Who of the models mentioned are currently modeling for these campaigns?

Carmen Dell Orifice-- Rolex (2005-)
Linda Evangelista-- L'Oreal(In 2007 she signed a multiple year exclusive contract), Prada (2008)

Anon 6:24 ?
My point exactly...the look is now about HEIDI not the clothes. Models are supposed to enhance the clothes, not dominate them.

I want to wear the Dior outfit when I see it on the runway. On Heidi, not so much...I would NEVER want to look desperate like that. And shortening the skirt so dramatically (which I neglected to point out in the previous post) and opening the neckline so much really ruin the lines the designer originally intended.

Not that making an outfit your own by wearing it the way you want is a bad thing. But then most of us are not being photographed for an editorial spread in Vogue, are we.

What part of 'multi year contract' didn't you understand?
Further, if you'll check magazines such as Vogue (Evangelista's Prada ad & Seymour's Valentino ad are in the March issue-- not current enough for you?), Robb Report, Elle et al, you'll see these models still appear in said ads. The year list w/ the hyphen following indicates the ads began in those years & are ongoing.

But, if you'd prefer to just be nasty & negative, pls, continue.
It's your life.


The clothes are too small. Look what's happening with the boobs on the red dress or the slit on the black skirt... Just too small. If they went up half a size it'd be fine.


But, if you'd prefer to just be nasty & negative, pls, continue.

Please. All I'm doing is pointing out something you don't like. There was nothing nasty or negative about it. Yes, some of those models may still be appearing in campaigns, but that's a far cry from "in high demand."

LOL!


She looks like Debbie Harry in that Dior dress.


your blog is so good......


She's looking old, old, old.....


We keep seeing these same dresses in editorials--
how come the same designs end up in all of the editorials? Now fashion is really mimicking Hollywood and it's tendency towards the unoriginal.


I like her in the LV.


The problem is, Heidi never was a high fashion model in the past and she sure isn't good at modeling high fashion now.
I hate what they did to the Dior dress, funny how everything Heidi wears has to be tight, short and showing off boobs.


Wow, that is a truly unfortunately placed poodle.


What is with the dog purse? Is that going to be the newest trend?


Poor poodle. I also thought it was a purse.

I do like the Vuitton dress.

I agree with another PP that says she is getting into the Kim Cattrell category.

The boots are crazy


Darlings, as I see it, there are a few problems with these pictures: For one, the German Vogue was never the best at either choosing couture or much else. They have an artsy, avantgarde approach to fashion and styling - which in itself would be quite nice, although at the same time often omitting great German designers isn't- and rarely want fashion or the models wearing it, to look good.
Secondly, even if the pictures we see here are rather unflattering, I'm sure the editorial will look way better. These are only papp's photos and those are soooo often aimed at ridiculing the photographee, we really shouldn't be surprised at it making even Heidi Klum look less than stunning.
Also, those dresses are so overdone. So they have been altered - but with the "great" "taste" of a deaf and blind German taxi-driver. And they weren't the most flattering looks of the season in the first place. Yes, Mrs. Seal SHOULD wear less "youthful" looks from time to time - although she still often manages to pull them off way better than those teenaged beanpoles - but to call her too old for modeling is ridiculous.

PS: Who says, it was her, who decided on the changes anyway?


That red Atelier dress does no woman's hips any favors, even Heidi, who has some beautiful ones. The construction on the dress is very nice, but take away the sequins and it's just "meh" that gives every gal big hips.

I'm curious to see what the editorial pics will look like.


But, if you'd prefer to just be nasty & negative, pls, continue.

Please. All I'm doing is pointing out something you don't like. There was nothing nasty or negative about it. Yes, some of those models may still be appearing in campaigns, but that's a far cry from "in high demand."


If Ferragamo and Prada are not considered high-demand, what is? Couldn't those labels just have easily chosen a different model for the print ads?

Just because a model isn't on the runway anymore doesn't make them unfit for print work. I'm with Emma on this one. If they signed multi-year contracts, there's a demand for them, whether you want to admit it or not.


LURVING THE MCQUEEN SHOES!!
i don't like the dior dress she looks like a german bearfest girl!


Yes, there are older models (and by older, I mean over 30), however, they tend to be only in print ads, and not modeling avant garde pieces. The fact of the matter is all the girls walking the runway and wearing couture are under 30 (in fact, most are under 25).

Heidi is gorgeous. Her body is fantastic. The fact of the matter is, however, she is in her mid thirties, and she wears items that I would never wear, and I'm a six foot tall 22 year old grad student who models to help pay the bills. It's not that I don't have the body to wear what she does; it's that her selections are sometimes too tacky for a woman of my age, let alone for a 35 year old.

It's not an insult when people say Heidi is too old to wear some of these outfits (hell, I'd argue that some of the stuff she wears shouldn't be worn by ANYONE, but I digress). It's just that by your midthirties, some outfits start to make you look desperate for attention, even if your body is still good enough to pull it off.

We're not saying she should never wear her VS outfits, or that she should cover herself up like a nun. We just think she should stop dressing herself up like a slutty disco ball. She should also stop wearing dresses that show off a third of her asscrack. Actually, come to think of it, that dress ALSO made her look like a slutty discoball...

heidi klum pretends to be someone else serving pizza


I don't think Heidi Klum is competing with any 20-something models for work. She is in her own category, modelling gave her a pathway to showing off her personality, and now she is known more for that than anything. The fact that after 3 kids she can still pass the Victorias Secret test is just a bonus (and I do think that her non-model fame keeps her in that gig to some extent).

People are mistaken if they think Vogue Germany books her just to model, she is gracing their pages as one of their most famous celebs who happens to fit into these sample sizes. Same as US Vogue books Blake Lively or Victoria Beckham.


And I think that the red dress is totally Heidi!
