After re-creating the dance portion of the “Chandelier” with a costumed DeGeneres lip-syncing as the singer, Klum sat down to talk about what she planned to wear to her 17th Halloween party.
“With the election going on, I thought I'm going to be Donald Trump, but my hands are too big, so I had to rethink this whole thing,” she joked. She would say only that her costume was made in Germany, so “maybe I'm going to be a gigantic bratwurst or schnitzel or knudel or something.”
Hmm. Sounds like something Trump might call a supermodel?
Klum and team used prosthetics, wigs and more to create Klum’s multiplicative illusion, getting the job done in a three-story, $20,000-a-night SoHo penthouse — or $16 million if you simply wanted to buy it.
The party itself was held at Manhattan’s swanky Vandal nightspot, where guests included Trevor Noah as a third-world dictator and Kyle MacLachlan as kale.
Yes, the vegetable.
The “Project Runway” host has a storied Halloween history, with her costumes ramping up in recent years. She brought Jessica Rabbit to life last year, and before that showed up in costumes including Cleopatra, a cadaver with the skin stripped off, a Transformers-type alien towering over then-husband Seal and a Hindu goddess with multiple arms.
Here are some getting-ready videos Klum posted to Instagram before the “Ellen” show and the party:
