It’s Heidi Clone! After teasing her fans for weeks about her Halloween costume plans, Heidi Klum finally made her reveal on Monday, October 31 and the results were impressive.
Although the supermodel took time out from prosthetics and mounds of makeup, the same couldn’t be said for the other five women who completed her outfit, by being cloned.
The leggy 43-year-old and her look-a-likes made a dramatic entrance to her annual Halloween bash in NYC, inside a giant wooden box with “Made in Germany” written on the outside.
A group of men took down the lid to reveal six women outfitted in identical Herve Leger by Max Azria dresses-turned-bodysuits and over-the-knee boots.
“Are you seeing double, triple, quadruple, quintuple, sextuple?!” Klum hinted with a photo on Instagram hours before the party.
The America’s Got Talent judge, famous for her jaw-dropping holiday getups, shared some behind-the-scenes video clips on Instagram on Monday ahead of her big reveal as prosthetic and special effects experts Mike Marino, Mike Fontaine and makeup artist Linda Hay got to work on the supermodel’s complicated look.
“Happy Halloween, everyone! It’s that time of the year again, so let’s get this party started,” Klum said in an Instagram video, before sitting down to begin hours of makeup for her elaborate costume.
Klum, 43, previously gave Us Weekly a hint at her Halloween costume, revealing this year’s surprise is inspired by her native Germany.
“My theme is going to be a German theme, and it’s going to be made in Germany,” she said at the amfAR Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles on Thursday, October 27.
And she admitted her over-the-top costumes don’t always go to plan, telling Us: “It always goes through so many hurdles because then things go wrong, and it’s not as easy as I thought it would be.”
Klum already flawlessly pulled off one impressive Halloween costume on Monday, dressing up as reality TV star and dancer Maddie Ziegler to appear alongside Ellen DeGeneres as Sia on the comedian’s talk show.
But the supermodel and her team appeared to have their doubts about this year’s look in some behind-the-scenes videos Klum posted to Instagram Monday.
“Is this going to work out?” she asked makeup artist Marino, who assured the AGT star this will be her best costume ever and added a hint, saying: “I can’t wait to do this four more times.”
“This is a big make it work moment,” the Project Runway host added, channeling the fashion show’s mentor, Tim Gunn.
And Klum shared a video with her makeup artist Linda Hay that gave fans another sneak peek at what she had in store for her big bash.
“Please make me pretty,” Klum begged, adding: “Oh my gosh, is this going to work?”
“I don’t know,” her makeup artist admitted.
Last year, Klum was unrecognizable as buxom Jessica Rabbit from the 1988 movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit? as she hosted her annual party. For previous Halloweens, she’s dressed up as a giant blue butterfly, an old woman, Ancient Egyptian queen Cleopatra and even arrived on horseback in costume as Lady Godiva.
While her costumes usually amaze, the model was criticized by the Hindu community for dressing up as goddess Kali in 2008.
