Heidi Klum Takes a Walk on the Wild Side in a High-Slit Leopard Dress & Thigh-High Boots

Heidi Klum brought her wild side to the set of “America’s Got Talent” this week.

Teasing the episode last night on Instagram, the model gave her best strut in a bold leopard-print dress; the design featured a long-sleeve fit with a high-leg slit. To elevate the bold number further, Klum then slipped on a set of sheer black tights and slick thigh-high boots.

Knee-high and thigh-high boots are the must-have boot silhouettes this season. From leather twists on the trend to edgy lace-up styles, you can find the taller shoes on everyone from Ciara to Lily Collins and Gwen Stefani amongst other major names. In colder temperatures, the silhouettes offer coverage to counter skirts, dresses and shorts as well as provides an extra layer to any leggings or jeans look.

Klum herself is a major fan of thigh-high boots and broke out a bold pair for the MTV Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted. The model arrived on the red carpet for the second night of events in bold fashion, matching a semi-sheer blazer to a coordinating skirt; both pieces come from Aliétte’s fall ’19 collection and feature unique hand-beaded detailing.
