Has Heidi Klum taken the flared trend too far Model looks in danger of losing a child in the folds of her gigantic trousers

It's a popular seventies trend that is revisited once in a while with varying success.

But it appears that Heidi Klum took the flared jeans look rather too far on this occasion.

The 38-year-old wore a pair of ridiculously wide trousers as she took her daughters Leni and Lou to a ballet class in West Hollywood today.

The star could easily have tripped as she navigated her way from an Italian restaurant to the Brentwood class, as might seven-year-old Leni.

She was joined by her husband Seal, who helpfully carried two-year-old Lou.

She and Seal enjoyed a holiday with their children skiing in Aspen in Colorado over the festive season.

Heidi managed to look rather more chic as she hit the slopes in an all-black outfit.

The Victoria's Secret model said in a recent interview she loves experimenting with different fashion styles.

'Fashion is always fun, interesting, new and different. I love to get dressed in unusual things.,' she revealed.

'I'm not scared – when I go on the red carpet, I always wear what my gut tells me, not what people say you should wear in order to be safe. I experiment with clothes – I love clothes.'

Her attempt to emulate the classic seventies look didn't go quite as well as that of Jessica Alba, who has also been sporting the trend.

Jessica donned an impressive pair of 70s-style bell bottoms while running errands in Los Angeles yesterday.

The shapely actress looked chic as she went on a brief shopping trip in the upmarket Brentwood area.

Jessica is looking back to her best after a gruelling exercise regime following the birth of her second daughter Haven in August, which she tweeted about to inspire her overweight fans.

And she showed it off to the full in an attractive blouse, which was tantalisingly unbuttoned at the top, her tight-fitting flares and fashionable sunglasses.
