Heidi Klum's Halloween Party

Labels:
Caw!



Heidi had her 10th annual Halloween bash last night and she came dressed as ... a sexy crow? In fishnets and thigh-highs? Husband Seal joined her as a fellow crow...in a tuxedo.

They do things differently in Hollywood.

I love Heidi's costumes. I'm not so sure about the fishnets this year, but one can always be assured of being entertained by her!


Looks like classic Heidi: short, tight and ....feathery?


"i wouldn't wear that!" to quote heidi of course.

wow is she trying to stand for the proposition that you can put "sexy" in front of any word for a halloween costume & it is?


That's certainly, um, interesting and unexpected.


I thought maybe there was an Edgar Alan Poe reference in there somewhere, but no.


Well that's....an interesting choice. And she felt the need to make it....sexy. Fantastic.

The way Heidi's been acting this season has me thinking some majorly offensive thoughts. I immediately thought of Dumbo when I saw her, and even though she's obviously not racist, the thoughts just won't go away. That women's lack of taste has done me in.


oi. how did she 1) sit, 2) drink or 3) make fun of Gordana in that outfit?


I don't know if it's just an unfortunate angle, but the hemline, fishnets and boots all conspire to make her look stumpy.


And this woman is judging other people's taste levels???


for cow's sake.. it's costume everyone, it's halloween, what do you all expect?

a couture dress from atelier versace?

good god


I'm kind of disappointed, she's done better; it's all black, you can't see the details of her costume, it doesn't photograph well.


I think it's fun. I'm not sure what inspired her to choose "crow with thighs" as her #1 costume choice, but good on her for going all out and wearing something so completely bizarre and completely unique.


Now THAT's what someone should have made for the Mackie challenge.


Some more pix, plus other guests in inexplicable get ups.


I don't get it. It's not particularly scary, funny or sexy. Just really, really odd. She looks a wee bit deranged.

Seal seems to be enjoying himself, though.


oops; here:

Wow. And the flower brooch on Seal. Is it because crows like shiny things?


Is this some kind of take-off on the Victoria's Secret Angels line? I'm confused. I don't understand the blackface. I might be getting too intellectual about this though.


my guess is she's still carrying some baby weight so this was a way to cover up what she didn't what seen - although i'm sure her goddess body would still put many of us mortals to shame.


Hold up, anon, can we really call ALL black face makeup "blackface", when the context (as here, a crow costume -- crows are black) has nothing to do with what the term "blackface" (ie. "The make up technique of making an actor, usually white, to resemble an African American or at least a caricature thereof") signifies? I think you're reading too much into black makeup in this case.


oops, sorry, that comment was directed at twc, not "anon". my bad!


Now this is "blackface"

LMAO!!


It's too bad they didn't go as the jazzy Hekyl and Jekyl crows from the old Harveytoon cartoons.


Seriously? The pictures in that link? I have no idea what some of those costumes are supposed to be. *Mine* looked better than that. Did like the tooth fairy, tho.


Oh, Heidi. No one does Halloween quite like you. :)


I'd say definitely a huge step down drom her Kali costume

I thought I would point out that Seal also has the black face paint on. If there's doubt, you can see part of his neck in one of the pictures that shows his actual skin color. This is definitely not a case of blackface.


Blackface? I think not, and I am usually one to find fault in this regard——

Perhaps Crowface? But that leads to thoughts of Jim Crow, which leads to... On a bad day, I might indulge in such a theoretical flight of over-interpretation, but it would here clearly be inaccurate and unfair——

There are many sins one can lay at Frau Seal's door, but racism——or even a vague insensitivity about race——is not among them.

Perhaps it is a subtle reference to Franz Kafka, whose name, in Czech, means crow (well, jackdaw, but close enough... )——

This would be more appropriate, given the Kafkaesque* qualities of this season's judging: the contestants step on the runway to find themselves guilty, always already guilty (or innocent)——

And as the logic is never stated, there is nothing they can do, before or after the trial, and no appeal——

*As someone who teaches and writes on Kafka, I generally avoid that adjective, but in this case...


The first thing I thought of was Heckyl and Jeckyl.

Bizarre, and not at all flattering to either of these generally attractive people. Amazingly well-made costumes, though.


Not the first thing I'd think of for a Halloween costume, but well made in any case. At least she's not wearing those freaky red contacts again. XX's


Heidi is my hero! I love that some people still really get into Halloween, its my favorite holiday


I usually love her costumes. Kali and the Apple of Knowledge were brilliant! This one? notsomuch.


Those yellow gloves on Seal remind me of the very creepy grocery challenge outfit (with rubber gloves)from a previous season, whose designer was sent home that night.


Heidi is in blackface.


honesty.not.pc

I am so happy you posted something about this. I love halloween and I really love halloween with Heidi! I like her costume this year but I think that she should have worn those thigh high legging boots that Posh wore a while back. Crows have black shiny legs, not fishnet legs ;)


Love it! The consensus in our house (which includes some trick or treaters) is WOW!

Love the way the crow head is constructed.


I credit it to being German, not so much Hollywood. Strange happens when the compulsively disciplined work ethic meets bacchanalia.


If they had referenced Howl's Moving Castle, it would have made those costumes hip.


Why leave her legs white if she was not using blackface? If it was to be black for a crow, then her legs ought to be black as well as her face. But they are not. So in my opinion, by leaving her legs white it looks like blackface instead of painting face for costume.


As gratuitously-sexy Halloween costumes go (...sexy witch!... sexy nurse!... sexy ketchup bottle!) Heidi's isn't too egregious an example.

The hideous grease paint and crow's beak allow for a little flash of thigh-- balances out the ugly.

C'mon, she's dressed as a black bird.


I think they might be referencing Jim Crow laws.


not awe awesome as past 2 years...


Much better last year.


this really confirms to me that those thigh-high boots don't do anyone any favors -- if Heidi looks sort of dumpy in them, what about mere mortals??


Oh for the love of the little baby jesus, painting one's face black =/= blackface. If they'd gone as cardinals and painted themselves red, would everyone be crying that they were being racist about Native Americans? Same thing.

I'm as liberal as they come, but come on. Being racially and culturally sensitive should not amount to being obtuse and ridiculous.


You know, she should have just gone for a Chicken Suit.


While I love Heidi for celebrating with such fun and over the top-i-tude I have to say, I'm sorry Heidi but you're auf.


I wonder if she got inspiration from Carol Hannah's Xtina dress.

Just thought I'd share: Last night we spotted a Sexy Canadian Mountie and a Sexy Sherlock Holmes.


When my baby was three weeks old I was still wearing pajamas 24/7. I cannot believe the energy this woman has!


I just wish she'd picked a more flattering costume. Crow or not, blackface or not-- but she looks like she has fat thighs, and I'm sure she doesn't!


Kathryn at 1;42--- Well said.

People when you reference racism about things that are so obviously NOT, you take the power of the allegation away when you need it.

She was dressed up as a damn black bird. She left her legs natural to be sexy---anyone who has ever watched PR knows she is all about her legs....heck, there are weeks when I feel I can attest to her gynelogical health. Good grief, people.


Heckyl and Jeckyl.

No doubt about it.

God, I loved that cartoon.


so so fucking ugly, and a super super costume


That costume does NOT flatter her thighs. I didn't even realize it was her at first.


Can't say I love the crow look, it's depressing. All I could think of is that the "designers" of Season 6 collaborated and came up with this colorless piece of feathered weirdness.


what's up with the Blackface obsession with fashion this fall? I know I know she's supposed to be a crow and it's halloween and shit. but seriously--between vogue paris, tyra's sugar cane plantation creepy hapas, and then V mags--are there not enough non-white models? Or is this a repressed fetish that is can now be unleashed in part because of the U.S. has a president of color? I know it's not just the US (french vogue etc), but there's something insidious going on that makes for provocative, in the least, thinking.


good to see that Frau Klum has fleshy upper thighs and fleshy ass.


I can't tell you how gratifying it is to see that Heidi is still carrying some baby weight in her thighs. It makes a mere mortal like me feel just a wee bit better!


Considering everyone and their mother was a zombie or vampire this year, I'm gonna give Frau Seal a pass.


Mystified...as usual.


This does make her look a bit stumpy, but still I think it's an awesome costume!! When it comes to Halloween costumes, creative and unusual beats sexy any day.

And I don't think those boots are making her legs look fat...it's be baby weight.


Meh. Her previous efforts were SO much better than this. My favorite is still her as the temptress snake/apple and Seal as Eve.


Heidi looks like a bird covered in crude oil.


Kanani, I read your post too fast and thought you wrote "Chicken Slut". Which, now that I think on it, Frau Seal probably wouldn't mind either.


Wow. How completely unappealing.


I'm with FashionFanatic, there's so much black-n-black that it's hard to distinguish the details of the costume. I'm also not wild about the make-up. Looks messy and too greasy ---- a matte look would've been more effective I think. I'll give them credit for being fun and keeping up the tradition.

I figured them for ravens rather than crows, Halloween being very Poe. (Quoth the Heidi-raven, "I'd wear that! No, wait, I mean -- Nevermore!") Certainly inventive and a bit off-putting, which makes them great Halloween costumes. Not sure about the fishnets -- those bright white thighs shine out like beacons against all that black. Which is probably exactly what she wanted. :)


Aw, let poor ol' Heidi enjoy her short, tight, and shiny while she still can. (Of course, that's one thing that she and Gordana have in common--loving the short clothes!)

I figured them for ravens, but the Heckle and Jeckle idea would have been great. The blackface looks a little creepy. Maybe Heidi and Seal are Baltimore Ravens fans?

Don't be hatin' on me, but Heidi's showing a little chub in those thighs. I'm assuming it's baby weight. Those thighs would look fabulous on any of us, but are not the Teutonic perfection that Heidi usually sports.


Kanani
11/1/09 1:55 PM You know, she should have just gone for a Chicken Suit.


So I guess she could have worn Althea's "winning" outfit?

i re-watched the last episode over the weekend - freeze frame when Althea's is behind the screen (in shadow)... the shaoe it TOTALLY Big Bird with Malvin's chicken thigh pants.


Oy - looks like fun, but damn I would think the greasepaint would start to feel gross and sticky after a while, no?


To be fair, that Raven is basically a Sad Chicken.

(wob wobbb)


"When my baby was three weeks old I was still wearing pajamas 24/7. I cannot believe the energy this woman has!"

If you had people doing all the mommy work for you, you'd have lots of energy for parties too.

She looks like one of those poor caught-in-an-oil-slick duckies in the Dawn dish soap commercials.


Asparagus lust

No costume magic here. His works ok, hers needed black tights. Ugly was the result. Boots were wrong proportion. Tho she is usually much, much too pin thin, this get up, even tho 3 weeks post birth, makes her upper portion look super large. Just a miss for a real "B".

I am no longer a fan after her 'tude on PR this year. She more than anyone turned it into some low class Melrose Place. For god's sake PR isn't the Heidi Ass Show, as is this party and all of her other over-exposed trollings. Yuck!!


Tarred and feathered?

What a mess.


I don't quite get it. There's just not much clever or fun about being Crows - now, the year of Eve and the Apple - THAT was a kickass costume for Frau Seal & Mr Heidi.

not sure how referencing Howl's Moving Castle would have helped with the crow costumes (incidentally, that is one my all-time favorite books. I guess Miyazaki's movie has those weird bird-creatures, but I don't remember them being black or crow-like....)

and what the hell - did Rachel Zoe not understand about Halloween & costumes? Or did she just go as herself?

In the link Anonymous posted, I cannot recognize most of the guests OR their costumes, but I DID love that there's a couple who who seem to have dressed as Dora & Diego (of Dora the Explorer/Go Diego Go fame).

and: Sexy Sherlock Holmes? what the bloody hell is this world coming to?


People complaining about blackface because her legs were left white are just so ridiculous.
Get over yourself.
She's a friggin crow!


I'm seeing raven rather than crow in these costumes.


I hate costumes incorporating hoods where human faces peer out of the mouths of whatever creature they're trying to portray.

Unless it's a Kwakiutl transformation mask.

Too literal. Shows lack of imagination.

Looks like person wearing the hood was swallowed by the animal.


What's Halloween without Heidi offending someone?

Didn't she go through something like this last year?

I'm mad and bitter about this because while these bitches were having fun and drinking champagne, I was puking my guts out and sipping chicken brother and ginger ale.


Okay. This explains a lot of the judging on Season Six of PR.


it is really nice to know that Heidi has some flab on her upper thighs.


So, Frau Seal took Malvin's pregnant chicken concept seriously?


I would guess they are the black crows. As in "The Black Crowes" (Hard to Handle). Maybe?


If she would've worn "clown lips" instead of the crow's beak, she could've gone as Alexander McQueen.


Really? Last year's was far better.


Although it was culturally insensitive, Heidi's version of Kalli was way better than this.


i can't believe how many people commented on her "fleshy thighs" or some variation thereof.

SHE JUST HAD A BABY THREE WEEKS AGO.

for christ's sake. ridiculous.


My first thought was that she got Peppermint Patty/Feather Prince to make her costumes this year. I find it amusing and fun. Whatever floats her wacky boat man.


Is this a reference to our President? Anyway they are both for the birds.


I would never have guessed, that's for certain.

Ah, well, if they had fun-- *shrug*


I would Auf the designer of those costumes. It just looks like a black mess to me. A home craft project. Maybe it's just the pictures.

~MDO


So what if she looks kooky. it was halloween and she's just being hiedi. she always looks like she's having so much fun.


I know Heidi's trying to be original, but her costume is just absolutely hideous.

And she is wearing blackface, whether she meant it in a racially derogatory way or not.

This woman's tackiness knows no bounds...


Hmmm. A crow hooker. That's an original costume. Or maybe she's in to really weird role play?
