Heidi Klum was undeniably sharp when hitting the red carpet for last night’s “America’s Got Talent” photocall.
The former Victoria’s Secret Angel posed in a two-piece set by Vera Wang. The ensemble featured a gray textured crop top with an asymmetric hem, turtleneck silhouette and cutout. Her matching skirt included two front pockets and a ring of belt loops, similar to those seen in suiting. Klum completed the look with silver hoop earrings and rings by Jennifer Fisher.
For footwear, Klum wore a pair of towering black leather ankle boots, also by Wang. The pair featured heels totaling at least 5 inches in height, as well as square-shaped platforms. Klum’s choice of an ankle style created a modern look that, thanks to its neutral tones, could be worn for a variety of occasions, whether on or off the red carpet.
Ankle booties are slowly coming back onto the fashion scene, now that fall has arrived. The style provides comfort and support without the extra material of taller boots. Aside from Klum, stars like Kate Beckinsale, Rita Ora and Anne Hathaway have been seen in different pairs of booties in recent weeks. In fact, Ora recently wore the same Wang boots as Klum last month.
Klum has had a busy summer since returning as a co-host with her former “Project Runway” co-star Tim Gunn for the second season of “Making the Cut,” which is available on Amazon Prime. The competition series profiles rising designers and adds their winning designs to shop live every week on Amazon. Additionally, she’s served as the host and executive producer of “Germany’s Next Top Model” since 2006.
The “America’s Got Talent” judge‘s summer shoe rotation often features chic, comfortable and utterly bohemian sandals. Klum has been spotted in styles that include thong straps, strawberry and snake prints from brands like Gucci, Femme LA, and Birkenstock. However, her fashion background extends far beyond wearing stylish shoes; the star began her career modeling for Victoria’s Secret, Sports Illustrated and Givenchy, and has even founded her own lines of intimates, swimwear, perfumes, and clothing with German grocery store Lidl.
