Heidi Klum has ruffled some feathers with her bold 2023 Golden Globes look.

The 49-year-old supermodel made headlines in October last year after dressing as a worm for Halloween, and now it seems as if she wants to start this year as she means to go on with her striking outfit choice.

The television personality donned a Germanier mini dress, which featured a cutaway sparkly bodice covered with a giant purple feather sash.

Klum’s look has received mixed reactions from fans on social media, with one person, @LouisPisano, writing: “Heidi Klum continuing her tradition of ONLY understanding the assignment on Halloween.”
