We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from and her newest show, Tabatha Takes Over, which is in its fifth season! And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch each week to dish on some of the bestand worst – celebrity looks of the week. Keep in mind the opinions below belong solely to the stylist … though she’s probably saying what lots of you are thinking, anyway!

Today, she takes on Heidi Klum, who has altered another runway dress.

Hello, Heidi, and so we meet again here at PEOPLE StyleWatch. I know last time I referred to you as looking like “a disco mermaid straight out of a Vegas attraction” for what you wore to the EMAs, but this time I promise not to be as harsh.

I can’t help but say your sparkly Talbot Runhof mini reminds me of the 90%-off clearance holiday mylar wrapping paper I saw at my local drug store last week. Don’t get me wrong, it is a sexy and striking frock when it comes to the fit and length, but the color and material is not very becoming, especially for a morning show such as the Today Show.

You know what would have looked hot beyond hot? If the dress was in emerald green, the Pantone Color of the Year. With the same belt and accessories the overall look would have been pri-mo!

And for the record Heidi, I know you have some fierce fashion sense. You’re Heidi effing Klum! It is a very, very rare occasion (if ever) you are seen in something not so fabulous. I don’t feel like this is totally missing the mark. It’s just 90% off … if you know what I mean.
