Heidi Klum Old Look: Halloween Costume Makes Her Into Grandma

Heidi Klum looked to senior citizens for inspiration this Halloween, dressing up as an older version of herself with the help of an award-winning make-up artist who aged her 35 years for her annual Halloween bash.

Us Weekly reported that the make-up artist gave Klum, 40, wrinkles and age spots over her arms and legs, which were complete with varicose veins. Her blonde hair was replaced with a stringy white wig.

"Klum's face was unrecognizable, too," wrote Us Weekly. "Her normally taut skin appeared to sag, and there were wrinkles all over her forehead, chin, and neck. She wore a pearl necklace, printed top, and a houndstooth suit, and she had a black cane to help her walk."

Klum's impressive transformation was courtesy of Oscar winning make-up artist Bill Corso, who won an Academy Award in 2004 for his work on "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events," and was nominated in 2007 for the movie "Click."

Corso, who worked on Klum along with Mike Marino, also did make-up for "The Amazing Spider-Man," and "John Carter." He was also Harrison Ford's makeup artist in "Cowboys and Aliens."

Klum's costumes are over-the-top each year. She dressed as Cleopatra in 2012, an ape in 2011, a robot in 2010, a black crow in 2009 and a Hindu goddess in 2008.

"I want people to strive to have a better costume than me," Klum told Parade magazine earlier this month. "I want my guests to really wow me. It’s so much fun when I’m looking at someone in their costume and it takes me a few minutes to figure out it is one of my closest friends." 

Klum said that she does not think Halloween is as fun if people don't get into the spirit of getting dressed up, which is reason she likes to go all-out with her costumes.

"I take Halloween very seriously, so I’m not a fan of a thrown together costume, but in an absolute pinch, look around at what items you have around your house," Klum said. "You’d be surprised what you can come up with. Or cut two holes in a bed sheet and be a ghost. But seriously, I’d rather stay home than go out in an uninspired costume."
