Yes, Heidi Klum is in there somewhere.
The 49-year-old ex-supermodel, Making the Cut host & America’s Got Talent judge dressed as a worm for her 21st annual Halloween party at Sake No Hana at Moxy Lower East Side in NYC last night.
Heidi‘s husband Tom Kaulitz was dressed as a fisherman who had her on his hook as bait. (He had a slight eyeball hook mishap, it seems…)
Klum said it took her two years of brainstorming to come up with the worm concept.
I like to do something unexpected, so I tried to think of a costume that is super absurd, but also very familiar. Because it is Halloween, you need the creepy factor, also a bit gross and disgusting.”
She, of course, needed a team of talented special effects people to make her creepy-crawly vision come to life, so she worked with makeup artist Mike Marino and his team at Prosthetic Renaissance.
No matter how crazy my ideas are, Mike brings them to life. I wanted to be Jessica Rabbit, and he said,
I wanted to be the werewolf from the Thriller video, and he said,
Clone me five times?
I called him and said, Make me a worm,’ and he said,
He initially did not want to do it and kept encouraging me to think of a new idea. However, I am not like that:
When I fall in love with an idea, I do not want to pivot.”
She even found the beauty in worms during the design process.
I love the color of a worm, as there are so many subtle colors of pinks and browns within its body,
And the way their segmented anatomy allows them to move so seamlessly: They seem so simple to the eye, but there is so much going on.”
Guests included Questlove, who DJ’d, along with Ice-T and Coco, Queer Eye‘s Antoni Porowski and Jonathan Van Ness, Kim Petras and Elon Musk whose date was his mom, Maye.
Those in attendance said Heidi took off her costume after the red carpet and walked around in lingerie with the worm face makeup on.
