Heidi Klum experienced a nipple slip wardrobe mishap while attending the French film La Passion De Dodin Bouffant screening at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday.

The 49-year-old German model confidently flaunted her curves in a yellow jersey-draped gown with crossed neckline and cutouts from Zuhair Murad’s Spring 2023 Couture Collection.

The dress also boasted a thigh-high leg split and a flowing cape, which Heidi proudly showcased as she graced the red carpet.

As she gracefully raised and lowered her arms to showcase the flowing cape, a subtle glimpse of her nipple peeked out from the golden bodice.

Unfazed by the wardrobe incident, Klum maintained her radiant smile and unwavering confidence, effortlessly posing for photographs on the red carpet.

Styled by Mariel Haenn and Rob Zangardi, Heidi opted for a pair of transparent high heels to enhance her stature. She drew even more attention to her ensemble with a stunning silver embellishment on the shoulders.

Completing her look, the America’s Got Talent judge styled her blonde locks sleek and straight and adorned her ears with elegant silver earrings.

In April 2011, Heidi Klum attended the star-studded 2011 Kids’ Choice Awards. The then-37-year-old multi-hyphenate was one of the lucky/unlucky few (depending on how you see it) who were chosen to get slimed that night.

Heidi got covered in the green gooey gunk while presenting the Favorite TV Actress award. However, before that, she was all class.

After being slimed, Heidi’s Gucci Pre-Fall 2011 embellished shift dress was clearly beyond saving, but there was no word if her shoes managed to escape.

Heidi styled her dress with Jimmy Choo‘s ‘Erin’ platform wedges. You can buy the ‘Emily’ sandal version on Farfetch.

The absence of information about whether Jimmy Choo lent Heidi these shoes for the event or if she purchased them at full retail price leaves us wondering. Imagining even the slightest hint of green slime on such exquisite footwear is enough to evoke a sense of distress.

While I don’t possess knowledge of the actual shoes in question or any photographic evidence of Heidi Klum encountering slime on them, the mere notion of defacing such remarkable creations is enough to send shivers down my spine.

Could you handle getting slime on these thousand-dollar Jimmy Choos?
