No One Does Halloween Better Than Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum has always loved Halloween, and she’s always been amazing at it. Over the years, she’s dressed as an alien, a (very sexy) cat, an Indian goddess and even the human body turned inside out. Her commitment is commendable, and her passion for the holiday just shows how lighthearted and fun she really is.

Last night marked Heidi’s 14th annual Halloween party at Marquee in New York City, and I have to say, I think she outdid herself this time around. Dressed as an old woman, I seriously wouldn’t have recognised her if it weren’t for the caption on the photos! The make-up work is incredible, and Heidi embodies her “character”, if you will, incredibly well. I’m so impressed!

Lots of celebrities dress up for Halloween, but my money goes for Heidi, who always does such elaborate, thoughtful costumes that I don’t think anyone will ever outdo her. How amazing does she look, even as an old woman?!

    I don’t get it. I kind of feel like it is making fun of the elderly to make them into a costume. Just as dressing as an Aboriginal person (“Indian” as you call them) is racist and not respectful, I’m not a fan of this costume.

      Oh please… I’m sure most people are not a fan of your dry, grumbling attitude..

      You’re entitled to your opinion, but to clarify she DID dress up as an “Indian” goddess: the Hindu goddess Kali. That was pretty upsetting to many in the Hindu community, though, and even I agree that it was probably in bad taste for a celebrity to do. I think the elderly costume was rather cute, though.

    Wait, so, wearing makeup that darkens your skin so as to make you look like one protected status of people is bad form but wearing makeup that makes your skin look like a wrinkled, stereotypical “old lady” is ok? Is that what makes Klum the person who does Halloween the best? How about dressing up as the Hindu Goddess, Kali and offending Hindus across the planet? That’s pretty insulting and hurtful but you say that she’s the best? Is she paying you something or perhaps you won’t dare calling out Heidi Klum.

    Personally, I think they are all wrong if you apply the same set of standards.

    This is a very good old age special effects makeup job. I wish that more people could appreciate the artistic beauty of this makeup. No one is saying old age is ugly; I don’t see this costume as inherently insulting. I’d like to think this is what Heidi will look like when she’s older; she’s obviously still dressed fashionably, and she looks classy and lovely to me! As far as her previous costume as Kali, and references to a recent celeb in the hot seat for dressing as a “black” TV character, I have yet to hear negative comments from Hindus or dark skinned people about either of them. I’ve actually seen the opposite in comment sections, and heard the opposite from my friends, who don’t find similar costumes to be offensive at all, and take into account the intention of the “offender” first before assuming they’re ignorant or racist. Although, I do have some pretty awesome friends. :)

    Blackface isn’t the same as being a kitten, a goddess, nor an old woman. The kitten is an animal, the goddess is mythical (I’d make the argument that anyone can go as Jesus Christ the same as anyone can interpret Athena into costume; The former is Middle Eastern, the latter Greek…both ethnically-specific, all considered Myth-derived) finally, everybody ages. Blackface has a specific [too recent] history all on it’s own.

    This is not a stereotypical old lady. What a stereotypical old lady would be is saggy boobs, missing teeth, geriatric shoes, ankle length skirt, multiple sweaters, and maybe a rain babushka for good measure. Even if she was a stereotypical old lady it’s not offensive…because, again, everybody ages. Otherwise your argument, Artice, is that “Benjamin Button” should have had the same reaction to something like “Passion of the Christ” did. Aging is a universal truth. Heidi Klum’s costume is actually amazing in that it is natural-looking and one can definitely see how that’s probably going to be what she looks like when she’s that old (and some may say that it’s a very brave costume choice given the industry she’s in*.) *What I wish this article went into.

    Regarding Blackface: For future Halloween reference: You can be a character that an African American actor happens to portray, just don’t wear any goddang blackface. There’s more to the character in costume and carry than one’s narrow-minded minstrel interpretation.

      Well said.

    Forgive the grammatical errors: Blackface has a …. all on its* own; “Benjamin Button” should have had the same reaction that “Passion of the Christ” did.*
