Golden Globes 2012 fashion: Heidi Klum reveals effort behind her flawless look

A top designer, stylist and hairdresser (and that’s just for the fitting): Heidi Klum reveals effort behind flawless Golden Globes look

As demure as she may have looked last night as she strode along the Golden Globes' red carpet, Heidi Klum has revealed the enormous amount of work that went into her neatly composed look.

Like all stars, the model's outfit was a mammoth production, worked on by many hands over many hours in the build-up to the LA awards event.

A behind-the-scenes film of the team affair shows that every inch of the final product was thoroughly rehearsed, from the depth of the model's sun tan to the dewiness of her make-up.

Model silhouette: Heidi Klum, 38, filmed a behind-the-scenes fitting in the run-up to her Golden Globes red carpet appearance to show how much effort goes into a single outfit

As reported by Fashion Foie Gras, the film shows the 38-year-old's first Calvin Klein fitting, and describes how she sought the 'super sexy elegant silhouette' that the label is known for.

The model is seen in the nerve-centre of Calvin Klein's creative head, Francisco Costa, where the dress is tested under the harsh glare of flash lights and with an army of onlookers.

The Project Runway presenter described
enjoying the fun of the Golden Globes better than the Oscars which, she
said, are more tense. The red carpet looks, are, however, just as serious.

'There's so much that goes into an outfit or a total look before you step onto the red carpet. Which most people don't realise,' said the former Victoria's Secret Angel of the fitting process.

'They think you just slipped this on and that was it,' she said.

As she hoped, the sleek, nude dress makes a fitting contrast to the voluminous Christian Siriano ruffles she wore to last September's Emmy Awards.

'What do you think we should do for my hair and make-up' she asks of the army of assistants close by.

Taking the plunge: Back on display, the model took to the red carpet last night looking fittingly dewy – and opted to wear her hair down as opposed to the original rough up-do idea

Hair stylist Michel Aleman consults the model on all matters hair-related, saying that he will style her blonde hair in a 'roughly' similar up-do, with 'maybe more texture… because [of] the necklace and the shine.'

As is customary when it comes to most women in the throes of planning a special outfit, ideas changed – Ms Klum last night took to the carpet with her hair down, relaxed and falling straight over her bare shoulders, dewy make-up and beautifully-cut gown firmly in check.
