Compare & Contrast: Heidi Klum, Oscar's Lady in Red

Compare & Contrast: Heidi Klum, Oscar's Lady in Red

Last night, as I was covering the 2009 Oscars red carpet, I got déjà vu. Out walked Heidi Klum in her red Roland Mouret number — and blam — flashback to her Oscars look last year. Of course, the silhouette of the dress was entirely different, but it exuded the same futuristic aura and was the same fiery red color. And, her jewels were pink again! Let's dissect Heidi's 2008 and 2009 Oscars looks shall we?

Dress: John Galliano made sure Heidi stood out on the '08 Oscars red carpet in this red, larger-than-life Dior gown. There is nothing shy about it — it's as red as red gets, has a huge collar, long side trains, and futuristic vibe. Oh, and Heidi chose red to benefit women's heart health.

Jewelry: It's apparent the Super loves the combination of red and pink. In 2008, her pink jewels from her own line complemented her red gown to a tee. She donned dramatic red and pink drop earrings, matching bracelets, and a red and pink ring.

Dress: Heidi went down the same red path this year by wearing a red dress in honor of her Diet Coke Heart Healthy campaign. Roland Mouret created this frock, which is not as voluminous, but just as in-your-face and futuristic. It also has a heavy sheen. Once again, the collar is the focus, but the skirt is equally attention-grabbing.

Jewelry: Red and pink it is again. Heidi chose to further sass up her red dress with light pink accessories. Like last year, the earrings were the focus, but stacked bangles and rings were also lavishly loud.

well she definitely knows that red is her color and that she photographs well in it. i think that as much as i love the '08 dress, i like the look of '09 since it's a little toned down in volume and 'height' i guess. i feel like it's sexy with the slit and off the shoulder look w/o being over the top

I don't like either one but last year's was a little better than this year's. For someone who hosts (hosted?) a show about upcoming designers, she sure looked tacky.

I think the more important question is, why is Heidi Klum always at the Oscars? She's not even in the movie industry. :?

Both of those dresses should be banned from the public eye. Hideous, although I am loving the heart healthy campaign.

Thanks for saying that estella, I think it's important to mention she's wearing red because of the heart disease campaign. That being said, I liked last years red gown.

The dress she wore last year was stunning. The dress she wore this year is boring.

I think she dresses in red to highlight her heart disease campaign with Coca-Cola. Heidi was showing off a charm she designed last night, sales of which go to fund research.

I think she's the only one who could pull off an all-red ensemble.

Thank you, I'm not the only one that could stop comparing last night's dress to last year's. 2009's can't compare to 2008's.
