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.

PHOTOS: Vote on whether these stars’ dresses were best on the runway or the red carpet!

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.

I couldn’t disagree more. Heidi looks amazing, as always.

I love that dress! She looks amazing, I wouldn’t take fashion advice from Tabitha anyway, advice on my hair…you betcha, but fashion? No way Tabitha dresses like the Grimm Reaper!

I honestly am beginning to question your sense of fashion. The most you remind me of is a bully with insecurity issues that preys on other peoples choice in clothing and attacks them to make yourself feel better.

It’s not something I would personally wear, but I don’t see anything wrong with her outfit. She looks good.

Marcia on

I actually like the dress but I would like it more if it were an inch or two longer.

I don’t know who Tabitha is (will Google), but I didn’t find her to be a bully with her opinion. In fact, I sort of agree with her. Heidi is beautiful and looks spectacular in this dress, but she wore it on the Today Show-a morning show? I think it would be more appropriate for an evening event.

I couldn’t agree MORE with Tabitha. It just looks cheap and sloppy!

Ally on

Right on the mark Tabitha. Good call.

Tabitha should critique the Mrs. Herman Munster frocks she wears on the salon show before critiqing others who are far more pretty.

Tina on

Tabatha is exactly right! Heidi is TOOOO OLD to wear this cheap, tacky, 80s thing.
