It’s a few days before Halloween, and I’m costumeless. I have ideas, sure, but none of them are quite right; none of them pack that combination of creepy and eye-catching that I crave. None of them are good enough for Heidi Klum.
See, Heidi Klum is my Halloween idol. Three hundred and sixty-four days a year she’s a super-hot supermodel with an annoyingly cute accent. But come October, Seal’s main squeeze transforms into an ancient noblewoman, an Indian goddess or a giant robot. She doesn’t need to be a sexy insert-occupation/animal-here, because being sexy is her occupation. Halloween is Heidi’s chance to do something different. And this year, she’s revealing more than ever before.
On October 29, Klum will host her 12th annual Halloween bash at Tao with DJ ?uestlove. Las Vegas Weekly got an exclusive peek at the Visible Woman outfit she’ll be wearing to the party, as well as a dose of Klum’s philosophy on the holiday.

“As grown-ups, we often take life way too seriously,” she says. “I feel like Halloween gives us the ticket to be silly for the night and dress up as crazy as we want to.”
Silly isn’t quite how I’d describe this Visible Woman bodysuit created by renowned costume designer Martin Izquierdo, who’s also made costumes for Broadway productions, the wings for Victoria’s Secret runway shows and the stunning pair of wings model Selita Ebanks wore in Kanye West’s short film Runaway.
“An artist literally painted each vein and blood cell on my body. He studied the human body and had research all around him so he would know where to place all of the muscles and veins on the bodysuit,” Klum says. “It’s really quite a work of art!”
And it’s got quite a canvas, too.
