Even a hurricane can’t keep Heidi Klum from celebrating her absolute favorite holiday – Halloween! Despite the fact that her annual bash was originally canceled due to Sandy’s wrath, the model simply postponed her big party and rebranded it as a Haunted Holiday party. Per her request, fashion insiders and celebrities including Amare Stoudemire and a (well masked Leonardo DiCaprio) donned their best costumes, and partied like it was the end of October, even though in reality, clocks said the first of December.
With Santa as her date for the evening, Klum took over a new club on the Bower called Finale, complete with glow in the dark dancers, and transformed from the Queen of Halloween to the Queen of the Nile. Her Cleopatra costume consisted of a floor length gold gown that took designer Martin Izquierda almost six months to complete, accented with a set of huge wings and an impressively large headdress. To top it all off, Klum appeared at her party with a face full of rhinestones that required almost three hours in the make up chair!
In the spirit of giving, she brought a touch of generosity to the party, donating funds to The American Red Cross in support of the continual efforts post Sandy. Costume partying for a good cause!
