Heidi Klum: Skin-and-MonkeyTastic!!!
Heidi Klum as "Skin-and-Bones" at her TAO/The Venetian Las Vegas Halloween Party on Saturday (top photo) and with Seal as The Perfect Monkey Couple, last night at her NY Halloween Party at the PH-D Rooftop Lounge/Dream Downtown NYCOne word: Wow! My Project Runway DIVA Heidi Klum loves her Halloween Parties and for 2011, this was no exception! I was invited to her infamous "Heidi's Halloween" Party this year. Usually she has one in Los Angeles one year and NYC the next, and so on. I thought that LA was this year.
In 2007, I went as one of the Marie Antoinette Royal Court (photo above with Heidi Klum and my fellow Season 2 Alumni Santino Rice)
In 2009, I did some red carpet reporting for the Modelinia.com site and I made (with the help of my NIKOLAKI Design Partner David Paul) a "Bollywood-meets-Gay-Aladdin" Costume.So, let's get back to Miss Heidi: The Las Vegas event was held at TAO in The Venetian this past Saturday night, and for that one, the Mistress of Halloween Ceremonies, decided to go as a Skin-and-Bone Version of herself--straight out of "Bodies: The Exhibition". She looked INCREDIBLE!!! Oh and did I mention that she made quite an entrance...on a gurney--with some HOT HOT nurses (where did she find them??). For Monday night's party at the Dream Downtown NYC Hotel (love that hotel and the pool!), Heidi and her husband Seal came as a loving Monkey Couple. Again: UBER fab! You see, this is what I am talking about: when Heidi and Seal go a out for their Halloween Parties, you CANNOT show up with something from Hollywood Blvd. Costume-in-a-bag!! Speaking of her costumes: her fittings occurred while she was in NYC filming the Project Runway Season 9 Finale in early September. Recognize someone in the background? It's Nicolas Putvinski (right behind Heidi) from Season 6. He is the lead assistant to costume designer EXTRAORDINAIRE Martin Izquierdo (red shirt and glasses) of Izquierdo Studio, famous for creating the Victoria's Secret Wing ensembles. There's an article in UsWeekly that erroneously states that I had something to do with her costumes, needless to say, I didn't (I wish!), but they got me confused with Nic Putvinski, who really did help make her amazing costumes. She even tweeted photos--as she was getting ready for the Las Vegas party--of the play-by-play transformation from Supermodel to Super Skin-and-Bones. Check out these photos: And of course, The End Result: Happy Halloween Miss Heidi!!! Hope next year it's in LA so I come!! Below are some of the guests that attended the NY Party:
