When it comes to throwing one of the most talked about parties of the year, few can even compare to Heidi Klum! So leave it to the ultimate hostess with the mostess to raise the bar yet again, by perfecting the art of the costume quick change, as the host of MTV’s 2012 Europe Music Awards held in her native Germany!
And we’re not talking about your typical two look routine here. To mark the international affair, Heidi opted for a total of nine stage worthy looks pulled straight from the house of Versace’s own Fall/Winter 2012 and Spring/Summer 2013 collection, each one of which was more glitzy and glam than the last!
“I have six different outfits from Versace that I love very much and I think for an event like the MTV awards I usually have a little bit more fun, I can be a little bit more sexy, a little more rock n’ roll,” said Heidi before hitting the red carpet.
Starting with that day’s pre-show photocall, the Project Runway hosted slipped into a silver and black minidress, before moving on to six other jaw-dropping looks that featured plenty of sexy cut-outs, plunging necklines and thigh-high slits. Looking to open the show with a bang, Heidi strutted out onto the stage in the evening’s standout piece, a white lattice corset dress with a full tulle skirt, selected from the Italian house’s couture Atelier collection. The look was made complete with black leather fingerless gloves and a Moulin Rouge-esque top hat. The German-born model kept the evening going with a bright orange and black lace mini frock— which we learned was chosen to help hide Heidi’s harness, as she swung from a ring above the stage— and knee-high Versace gladiator sandals, a tie-dye turquoise halterneck gown and one eye-catching gold cutout gown featuring bejeweled asymmetric nude leather straps.
On top of her seven stunning onstage ensembles, Heidi also found time to dress up in a powder blue suit and black sunglasses to join Korean pop star PSY for a side-splitting re-enactment of his mega famous “Gangnam Style” music video— proof that Heidi Klum can in fact do it all! The lovely host did credit her four children with helping her out with her killer dance moves, admitting that she regularly practiced her routine at home with them.
Throughout the rest of the night, Heidi performed her live hosting duties like a total pro, while enjoying performances by the night’s big winners, Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Carley Rey Jepsen and Rita Ora. Justin Bieber was also big winner, taking home three awards including, Best Male Act, Best Pop Act and Best World Stage, following last week’s buzzed about Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show performance. Top models Isabeli Fontana and Anne V were also in attendance, rounding out a truly star-studded night in Frankfurt!
