Heidi Klum Wears Roland Mouret Thigh-High Boots

April 5, 2012 • By Erika

While young stars like Selena Gomez were baring body parts at the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards, Heidi Klum kept things covered up at the event in a white, high-necked, long-sleeved minidress and gray suede thigh-high boots both from Roland Mouret.

But even though she was barely showing any skin, many style critiques have deemed Heidi’s outfit inappropriate for the awards show. One reason is that her outfit is too covered up for such a warm and sunny spring day. Another reason apparently is the heavy and “hookerish” look of her thigh-high boots.

Personally, I wish I could change the hooker stigma attached to thigh-high boots because, really, thigh highs can be super flattering when worn the right way. However, I can’t completely defend Heidi Klum here because those boots are tight as that dress is short. So, I’ll leave it up to you — do you think Heidi Klum’s outfit at the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards was hip or highly inappropriate?

Gotta give props to Heidi for even getting into those boots though because they’re just pull-on stretch boots with no zippers of any sort. I guess you’re supposed to slip your feet into the solid leather bottoms and then pull up the stretchy suede part like socks, and it looks like Heidi pulled a few stitches apart along the top of the boots while doing that.

I also have to thank Heidi Klum for debuting these Roland Mouret boots because now I know that the iconic dress designer is now also into designing footwear. I’m sure these are really expensive though. If you just want the gray suede thigh highs, they’re pretty easy to get. Here are three gray suede thigh-high boots I found after just a quick search:

1. Report Signature Fairfax 3 Boots, $449.95
2. DV by Dolce Vita Nathaniel Boots, $127.96 (before: $159.95)
3. Michael Antonio Haden Boots, $69.99 (before: $99.00)
