AT this point, the only person Heidi Klum’s competing with on Halloween is herself.
The German-born supermodel and former Project Runway host, 45, has been turning out increasingly OTT Halloween costumes each year for well over a decade now, hosting lavish parties just so her guests can bath in her level of extra.
This year is no different — and after several days of teasing her costume via Instagram, Klum and boyfriend Tom Kaulitz have finally arrived at her Halloween party, in costume as Shrek and Princess Fiona:
Klum has been putting the finishing touches to her look — and documenting the process via Instagram — for hours now:
Earlier, Klum showcased some of the painstaking work that went into creating her look with some behind the scenes Insta stories:
We don’t want to rain on Klum’s parade here but we feel duty bound to report that actor Colton Haynes did this first, rocking an incredible Princess Fiona look for Halloween 2014.
Other celebs in attendance at her Halloween party clearly knew they had to bring their A-game:
Last year Klum dazzled with an incredible tribute to Michael Jackson’s iconic Thriller video – and previous costumes before that have seen her dress variously as an elderly lady, Jessica Rabbit, Betty Boop and one of an army of fembot Klum-clones.
