Heidi Klum’s Costume Won Halloween Weekend
Heidi Klum loves Halloween – like, she really loves it. Year after year the 41-year-old model not only dresses in costume, but completely transforms herself into someone (or something) entirely unrecognizable. Last year she shocked everyone as a realistic looking old lady and the year before as a lavish, gold dipped Cleopatra.
This year Heidi ditched the human species altogether and decided to spend the night as a rainbow-colored butterfly. As she stopped for photos on the red carpet of her annual Halloween bash in NYC, she rocked wings bigger than her body, giant bug eyes and blue body paint.

As you might expect, a look this elaborate took a lot of prep time – five hours to be exact. Lucky for us the Project Runway judge gave us a behind-the-scenes look at the entire transformation via her Instagram. She started with a mysterious shot of her eye covered in black makeup and continued to build up anticipation with a time lapse of her entire metamorphosis.
Klum told E! News she decided on this costume after “someone very special to my heart called me a schmetterling [German word for butterfly], so I wanted to be a butterfly this year. They’re just so pretty and colorful and I used to love painting butterflies.”

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
