Heidi Klum's canceled Halloween party

Heidi Klum won't be able to don her latest Halloween costume tonight as her party is canceled due to the aftermath of the storm in New York City.


It looks like Hurricane Sandy has taken down a long-standing tradition in New York City this week. Heidi Klum canceled her annual Halloween party in the Big Apple so the city can focus on repairs and cleanup from the storm that caused horrific damage to the Tri-State area.

The supermodel tweeted last night, "Hope you & your loved ones are safe after the storm. Canceling my Halloween party ... postponing to a haunted Christmas." The tweet was accompanied by a photo of Klum bundled up in a wet NYC street.

The Project Runway host's party has become one of the most-coveted invites on the New York party scene. Celebrities such as Black Eyed Peas' Fergie, singer Natasha Bedingfield, and music mogul Russell Simmons have all attended her parties in the past, dressed in their Halloween finest.

This would have been her 14th annual fiesta, but the city is struggling to come back from the devastation of Sandy's wrath. Even the annual Halloween parade in the West Village is canceled this year since much of that area of the city is without power or mass transit at this point.

NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg said, "Unfortunately, we just cannot spare the manpower from the NYPD and other city agencies to host the annual Greenwich Village Halloween Parade, so we are postponing it to a later date sometime next week."

Klum has been widely known for her intricate costumes at past parties, including last year's elaborate dead body get up, pairing up with former husband Seal as a couple of monkeys, and the apple/serpent from the Garden of Eden.

This year, she had planned a stunning Cleopatra outfit that will just have to wait for her "haunted Christmas" party.
