Heidi Klum was a tropical goddess in slinky backless dress

Heide Klum is fashion royalty, there's no doubt about that. From her outrageous Halloween outfits to classically elegant everyday style, the Germany's Next Top Model host has honed her styling skills across the decades.

When the supermodel burst onto the scene in the nineties, she frequently dazzled with her noughties style and youthful looks. One of our favorites was her tropical creation at the 2000 premier of X-Men in New York.

The star completed her streamlined aesthetic by scraping her sandy blonde hair back into a bun and fastened with a raspberry pink and white lily. She also opted for a natural makeup look, showing off her career-defining features.

A black leather and patent bag was strapped over her shoulder, showcasing gold hardware that gleamed under the luminous lights of the flashing cameras.

The sheer fabric trend, as seen on Heidi here, dominated the nineties era. See-through materials became all the rage with their risqué nature and have re-emerged in today's culture as a Gen Z staple piece.

Famous faces including Kate Moss and Kate Winslet made headlines in sheer slips, while star such as Emily Ratajkowski, Elsa Hosk, Kendall Jenner, Naomi Campbell, Vanessa Hudgens, and Phoebe Dynevor has helped bring the trend to the forefront of the global fashion imagination today.

The star was joined by her husband Tom Kaulitz for the event as they posed outside the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. Heidi radiated confidence in a Kevin Germanier mini dress.
