Her most intricate Halloween outfit yet? Heidi Klum goes all out as she's wheeled in to annual party on an autopsy table
But there was no chance of anyone upstaging Heidi Klum at her party last night.
The 38-year-old model was wheeled in to the event on an autopsy table by two blood-spattered doctors.
Project Runway host Klum decided to dress up as a dead body for the event, and spent the majority of the day being airbrushed with make-up to ensure her appearance was as realistic as possible.
Talking about the outfit, Klum said:
'It’s kind of like a dead body with the first layer of skin ripped off. It’s basically like me naked.
Klum teamed her extraordinary outfit with a pair of sky-high black heels, and impressively realistic rotten teeth.
The German supermodel had been keeping her fans updated on the progress of her outfit throughout the day, posting pictures of each stage on Twitter.
From having the skull cap applied, to showing the basic 'road map' of the dead body design on her face, to finally showing off the airbrushed make-up before heading to the event, there is no doubt that Klum's outfit is the most intricate and
time-consuming of the occasion.
Klum is no stranger to dressing up for Halloween, going bigger and better every year.
However, she has also previously caused controversy with some of her outfits, with her 2008 costume of the Goddess Kali sparking outrage from Hindu leaders who demanded an apology.
'I mean that is one of my most favorite times of the year. I've done so many different things. This was probably my tenth time and I've done so many people like Betty Boop and Lady Godiva and it’s always a take on someone. You’re not that person.'
In 2009, Heidi and husband Seal dressed up as birds of a feather, but Klum said the outfits were difficult to cope with.
She said: 'It was bad. My husband was driving and he could hardly see anything...
When you have a beak on, you can't talk to anyone, you can't really
drink. It's not a good costume!'
EXCLUSIVE: Fox is bringing back its groundbreaking 1990s sketch comedy series In Living Color with the series’ creator and star, Keenen Ivory Wayans, on board as host and executive producer. Fox has ordered two In Living Color half-hour specials to air as part of the network’s 25th anniversary celebration in midseason with a series option behind them, meaning that in success, the reboot will join Fox’s schedule as a regular series next season. I hear it was Wayans’ idea to revive the popular sketch comedy series with a new cast. The new In Living Color will be produced by his production company Ivory Way Prods. in association with 20th Century Fox TV’s Fox 21.
Like the remake, the original In Living Color, which was produced by Ivory Way Prods and 20th TV, also launched in midseason, premiering on April 15, 1990. It broke stereotypes by employing a cast of mostly black comedians and introducing hip-hop and dancing to mainstream television. The show helped launch the careers of a slew of comedy actors — its cast included Wayans; his siblings Damon, Shawn, Kim and later Marlon; as well as Jim Carrey, Jamie Foxx and David Alan Grier — and of course Jennifer Lopez as one of the Fly Girls. It spawned such iconic characters as “Men on Film,” starring flamboyant film critics Blaine Edwards (Damon Wayans) and Antoine Merriweather (Grier); Homey D. Clown (Damon Wayans), a dour urban kiddie entertainer whose catchphrase was “Homey don’t play that!”; streetwise scam artists “The Home Boys” (Keenen Ivory and Damon Wayans); and Fire Marshall Bill (Jim Carrey), a disfigured safety expert. In Living Color gave its actors freedom to improvise and it skewered everyone, particularly black America. In probably the most successful programming stunt opposite the Super Bowl ever, a special live edition of In Living Color drew some 25 million viewers during the halftime of the 1992 Super Bowl on CBS. But the show’s fearlessness when it comes to the targets of its jokes and the unapologetic political incorrectness of its skits often ran afoul with Fox’s censors. The frequent clashes contributed to Wayans’ departure from the show after the third season though he remained an executive producer. In Living Color ended its run in May 1994 after five seasons.
Fox has long been looking to launch a successful new sketch comedy series. Last season, it tried with In The Flow With Affion Crockett, executive produced by In Living Color alum Foxx, which was originally slated for midseason but ultimately aired in the summer to low ratings. Keenen Ivory Wayans, repped by UTA, has been focused on features for the past 15 years, directing, writing and producing the successful Scary Movie franchise as well as White Chicks and Little Man, on which he worked with his brothers. At Fox 21, In Living Color joins series Homeland, Breakout Kings and Sons Of Anarchy.
#2. The White House Halloween Party
Surrealism and massive balls.
What's more, as you can see above, the festivities are now hosted by a President of the United States who is an unabashed Star Wars and comic book nerd. This translates to the exact thing you'd hope for and expect:
That's a fantastic President of the United States costume.
Hang on ...
Sasha looks adorably terrifying.
"Could have used you on Endor, beep beep."
#1. The Queen Mary's Dark Harbor
Yet with the right mindset (and some cash to burn), you can arrange a kickass Halloween at the Queen Mary at Long Beach, California.
That's the one where they refuse to let out Cabin B340 because of the murdered little girl living there.
Using a corpse as a mattress? Eh, we've done worse.
He's there to take your bags, don't be rude.
It's not a holiday without pillars of fire.
The service is impeccable in that respect.
We hope they also have some serious firepower.
Happy Halloween, indeed.
