Heidi Klum’s notorious Halloween party this year was a talk of the town for more reasons than just her costume, a rare occurrence for the famous model, known for her extravagant and outlandish Halloween ensembles.
Klum’s annual Halloween extravaganza is often a platform for her to showcase her elaborate, transformative costumes. Over the years, she’s donned various guises, from a worm to a busty alien lady and even the character Fiona from Shrek. Her 2023 costume was no exception as she graced the event as a vibrant peacock, accompanied by 10 Cirque du Soleil performers, vividly portraying her peacock tail.
But in an unexpected twist of events, it was her husband, Tom Kaulitz, whose costume received just as much attention, if not more, than Klum’s highly anticipated outfit. Kaulitz opted for an egg costume that stole the limelight with its humorous charm.
Online reactions buzzed with praise for Kaulitz’s witty attire. Some marveled at the unforeseen yet comical choice he made in complementing Klum’s outfit. Numerous comments flooded in, with one person reminiscing: “If you told me in 2009 that Tom Kaulitz from Tokio Hotel would be dressed as an egg to support his wife’s Halloween costume in the year 2023, I would’ve laughed so hard at the absurdity of it.”
Social media was brimming with adoration for Kaulitz’s role as the peacock egg. One user expressed their enthusiasm, saying, “Obsessed with Heidi Klum’s husband dressed as an egg,” with another user praising the couple’s dynamic, “Heidi Klum making her husband be the peacock egg for Halloween is so iconic.”
The public’s amusement was evident in various tweets, including one that read: “Heidi Klum being a peacock and her husband being a f**king egg for Halloween is the best thing I’ve ever seen.”
However, not all Halloween costumes earned such widespread praise. Khloé Kardashian faced scrutiny for her Bratz doll get-up, not due to her choice of outfit but rather for an apparent spray tan. Some accused her of ‘blackfishing,’ expressing concerns and critique over the noticeable spray tan, raising questions and accusations of blackface.
Criticism emerged online, with comments such as “Why are you so brown, Khloe?!” and more assertively, “This is most definitely blackface & I don’t appreciate it.”
