The Jewelry Insider

November 2, 2008

With the make up stains now a permanent fixture on your Joker Nurse costume and your candy collection down to the B list, we thought we’d share our favorite celebrity-bejeweled costume to cure your Halloween hangover.

There were several high profile bashes on both coasts, including Kim Kardashian’s L.A. masquerade party and the soiree at the Roosevelt Hotel. But perhaps the hottest ticket was for Heidi Klum’s Halloween Party in the big apple- and fittingly her scary Indian goddess costume takes our top prize.

According to US Magazine, Klum got the idea from her assistant.

“My husband [Seal] and I were in India last year, so she said, ‘Why don’t you do an Indian goddess? Like a scary Indian goddess?’ And I said ‘OK!'”

“So then she Googled around and she found Kali and showed me a picture, and I loved it,” Klum said. “I loved it because she’s so mean and killed all these different people and [had] fingers hanging off [her] and little shrunken heads everywhere.”

According to Indian tradition, Kali’s jewelry consists of earrings made from two dead bodies and a necklace of skulls. We’re glad Heidi took a less literal approach – but it’s clear the gold fan earrings, elaborate headdress and elbow-length bangles (on all eight of her arms) were meant to look larger than life.

The party took place at 1 Oak in New York City and revelers included the likes of Pink and Project Runway winner, Christian Siriano.
