Heidi Klum dresses as bizarre and terrifying worm for her annual Halloween event

The Queen of Halloween has done it again!

No, seriously. Nobody does fancy dress like Heidi Klum, who has somehow turned this holiday into a career.

The supermodel is known for transforming into all kinds of characters and emerging unrecognisable, so much so her two-year Halloween hiatus has been felt far and wide.

Her highly anticipated spooky party and a costume so elaborate nobody was sure it was actually her.

The mother-of-four turned up in a full body worm costume, complete with a large curved head and a long tail. Only her eyes, nose and mouth were visible within the costume, as well as her feet.

Not enough for anyone to instantly know it was her.

The major clue in the puzzle was her husband, Tom Kaulitz, who complemented her costume by dressing as a fisherman with a bloody eye.

On the blue carpet entrance to her party on Monday night (31 October), Klum posed with Kaulitz by laying on the floor while he knelt beside her with his arms raised as though in triumph.

Before her big reveal, Klum teased fans with a video of her getting ready for the night but was careful to keep her body and head under wraps.

She shared that the getting ready process began at 11am and expressed how excited she was for this year’s Halloween party after two years off due to Covid-19.

Fans were delighted were of course excited to see her return.

One person wrote: “The only reason I care about Halloween is to see what insane s*** Heidi Klum pulls, like year, of course she’s a massive worm, why not.”

“Heidi Klum dressing as a worm is my favourite thing this year,” another said.

“Heidi Klum remains the undefeated queen of Halloween,” a third declared.

The German model’s annual Halloween party is usually attended by many high-profile celebrities, and this year was no different.

Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness and his husband Mark Peacock arrived as Patsy Stone and Edina Monsoon from Absolutely Fabulous.

Kim Petras turned up dressed as Krampus, while Klum’s 18-year-old daughter Leni Klum, who attended the party for the first time, transformed herself into Catwoman.

Questlove kept it simple and arrived dressed as an astronaut while meanwhile, Kim Kardashian felt ’embarrassed’ as she turned up at Tracee Ellis Ross’ no-costume 50th birthday party as Mystique from X-Men.
