We already knew that supermodel Heidi Klum was the undisputed queen of Halloween — her costumes, which have ranged from Betty Boop to the apple from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, are always spectacularly over the top and really, really well made. And this year she’s gonna be Iron Man.
Well, OK, maybe she’s not exactly going to be the Marvel Comics-Robert Downey Jr. version of Iron Man, but she is going to wear a metal-clad robotic-looking costume that shines like armor and probably weighs more than her husband Seal.
Klum worked with a familiar face, costume designer Martin Izquierdo, to make the costume. Izquierdo is the man responsible for some of the fantastic wings seen at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and has created costumes for Klum before. Stylelist got a sneak peak of this year’s red-and-purple creation, which looks bulletproof and figure-flattering at the same time. It’s also on stilts, because Heidi totally wasn’t skyscraper tall enough already.
Klum will tower over everyone at her annual Halloween party in New York City this weekend. We’re just hoping she won’t fall off the foot-high platforms.
What are you wearing for Halloween? Inquiring minds want to know! If you’ve already got your costume, we highly recommend showing off your ghoulish duds by uploading a photo to Style Sheets.
