Heidi Klum may have been the hostess of this year’s MTV Europe Music Awards, but she certainly wasn’t winning the battle of the red carpet.
For her first of many outfits at the star-studded ceremony in Frankfurt, the 39-year-old left little the imagination in a revealing dress. The mother-of-four showed off a lot of cleavage in the lace-up blue and gold studded Versace gown as she arrived on the red carpet.
With this year’s ceremony being held in her native Germany, the supermodel was a natural choice to host the awards. As well as the rather skimpy number she arrived in, Heidi is expected to wow the crowds in a variety of costumes throughout the evening.
Ahead of the show she revealed: ‘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.’
‘So they have got me beautiful outfits, great shoes and great jewellery, but it depends how much time I have to change in between (hosting) because it’s all live.’
It wasn’t long until Heidi had her first outfit change and changed in to a cream strapless dress, with cut-out detailing. The top half of the dress, which appeared to be woven, turned into a large puffball skirt.
She completed the look with a bizarre top hat and leather fingerless gloves. Ahead of the awards, Heidi and PSY had been practising the Gangnam Style dance. In a Twitter photo, Heidi was seen wearing PSY’s signature blue suit and glasses as she enjoyed a masterclass with him.
Heidi admitted she regularly performed the dance with her four children. She said recently: ‘I’ll have to perform it. I have four small children and they are obsessed with the song. We do Gangnam dance parties at the house.’
Heidi wasn’t the only guest to arrive at the awards in a questionable ensemble. Pixie Geldof also failed to match up to the glamour of the other guests, opting for a stretchy, floor length dress and strange metallic handbag.
Jedward seemed in great spirits as they posed in identical blue sparkly outfits, although they’d ditched their usual high quiffs in favour of more demure hairstyles.
Conor Maynard looked dapper in a classic black suit and tie while he chatted to press, while Gangnam Style superstar PSY wore his trademark sunglasses.
Rita stuck to her red theme as she took to the stage to perform in a red lacy jumpsuit. The Brit star added a pair of red high top trainers as she jumped around the stage ans seemed to invoke Rihanna as she performed with a large black umbrella.

Heidi Klum and Psy dance ‘Gangham Style’
It’s the dance sensation that has swept across the globe, with famous fans including Britney Spears and Mel B. And now Heidi Klum is the latest star to try out ‘Gangnam Style’ and was seen performing the moves with the Korean rapper Psy at the MTV EMAs on Sunday night.
The 39-year-old model wore a cornflower blue tuxedo jacket, a pair of black trousers, a white shirt and a bow tie to perform with the record breaking star at the event last night. In the comedy sketch Heidi was seen throwing herself into the dance, and had clearly been practicing the famous sequence ahead of the show.
Heidi was even seen sporting Psy’s signature shades and oozed plenty of attitude as she threw herself into the dance.
Following her performance she tweeted: ‘Had so much fun dancing w @psy_oppa! What do you guys think of my Gangnam Style? #mtvema.’
Psy performed the track on stage at the glitzy awards bash, roping David Hasselhoff into his act. The former Baywatch star was seen sitting on a portable toilet when the Koran rapper surprised him.
The rapper has broken records with his Gangnam style rap, becoming the first ever Korean artist to hit the number one spot on the charts in the UK. More than 705 million users have watched his video on YouTube and he has the record for the most likes on the website with more than 5 million.
Psy was honored at the bash and scooped up the award for the Best Video.

Rita Ora and Taylor Swift both arrived at the MTV Europe Music Awards looking absolutely stunning as they walked the red carpet. Leading the way in the style stakes, the famous pair ensured that they stood out at the annual event, which was held in Frankfurt, Germany.
Rita, 21, decided to blend in with the carpet by opting for a striking, bright red Marchesa gown. The glamorous garment featured a nude long-sleeved top which was adorned with red floral detailing, and a large floor-length skirt which wrapped around the singer’s tiny waist.
The Hot Right Now star accessorized her attire with bright red lipstick and her trademark blonde hair, which she wore in bouncy curls. The British singer couldn’t hide her excitement as she sported a huge grin while posing for the cameras.
However, she did need a helping hand as she made her way inside the venue and was seen having her skirt carried by a mystery man.
She was threatened in the style stakes by country singer Taylor Swift, who wore an equally glamorous dress which didn’t require any help in carrying. The 22-year-old star showed off her slender figure in a cream-colored J.Mendel design which featured silver sequin detail, and also fell to the floor.
As Taylor posed with her left hand on her hip, she looked particularly sultry with her fringed hairstyle and smoky eye make-up. She spent time chatting on the red carpet with fellow U.S. singer Lana Del Rey who wore a much more understated dress.
The pretty brunette highlighted her curves in a navy blue satin gown that featured short sleeves, a tiered hemline and a wrap around waist. The Video Games singer kept her make-up and her beehive minimalistic and brought along her boyfriend Barrie-James O’Neill who opted to wear an all-black outfit.
Another singer who showed up looking sleek and chic was Alicia Keys who opted for the popular ‘optical illusion’ dress by Stella McCartney. The 31-year-old singer highlighted her enviable figure in a green version of the much-loved garment, and teamed it with gun metal coloured stilettos, a matching choker and bright red lipstick.
As she posed with her hands on her hips, the Fallin’ singer showed off her sleek bob hairstyle before heading inside the venue.
Call Me Maybe singer Carly Rae Jepsen opted for old school glamour in a floor-length cream gown and wore her hair in an elegant plait over one shoulder. The star went all-out with her make-up, creating a smoky eye effect and adding a splash of bright red lipstick.
Victoria’s Secret beauty Anne V went for an altogether edgier look, wearing a zip-up black dress and a biker glove on one hand.
Kim Kardashian, who has been in London for the past few days jetted into Frankfurt to present the Best Song award. In typical Kardashian style, she wore revealing, low-cut dress, which had a short skirt and long train made out of what looked like cellophane. The reality star wore her long hair scraped back in a dramatic ponytail and went heavy on the eye make-up.
