Model and TV host Heidi Klum is a fashion industry icon – but some fans were left questioning her taste levels after this very revealing outfit.

Former Project Runway star Klum's latest gig is as co-host and judge of Making the Cut, a high-budget new fashion competition series available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
