Heidi Klum may be best known for her modeling career and her cheerful demeanor on Project Runway, but the celeb’s other claim to fame is throwing what may be the spookiest Halloween bash in America. Sadly, the annual Heidi Klum Halloween event was canceled this year in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy. No worries though — the model and her buddies made up for lost time over the weekend!
Where else could you see Heidi Klum as Cleopatra and sitting on Santa’s lap but at the annual Heidi Klum Halloween bash? Except this time, the party was not reserved for just Halloween. After being forced to cancel her usual spooky festivities, Heidi decided to postpone the party until the holiday season. She announced this decision by tweeting, “Hope you & your loved ones are safe after the storm. Canceling my Halloween party…postponing to a haunted Christmas.”
A haunted Christmas is cool enough on its own, but what made the party particularly noteworthy was the fact that it was being held with the express purpose of raising money for the Red Cross. The model ended up dedicating the entire weekend to volunteer efforts, first holding the party and then distributing food and other supplies to New Yorkers in need. She later tweeted, “Thanks AOL, Patch PR, Red Cross & Babies R Us for a truck filled with much needed supplies for the people in Seaford, NY.”
Based on the pictures and the excited Twitter reactions, it looks like Heidi Klum’s haunted Christmas was an overwhelming success! Plenty of celebrities showed up, including Jay Manuel in a really disturbing devil costume, as well as Katie Couric dressed as eggs over easy — an egg carton on her head and a skimpy black dress on her body. Heidi looked best at all in a dazzling Cleopatra outfit. And that’s what we call a fun holiday party!
