Heidi Klum made a real statement dressed as Cleopatra as she was finally able to celebrate Halloween in style.

The supermodel covered her face with hundreds of coloured Swarovski crystals and wore a shimmering gown with winged cape that was topped off with a large black wig and golden headdress.

Heidi’s 13th annual Halloween soirée which was held in New York City was postponed at the end of October because of Superstorm Sandy.

The Project Runway host said: “When Sandy hit and I was like, ‘I cannot do a Halloween Party. I can’t have fun when so many people’s lives have been destroyed.’”

Heidi spent hours getting her make up done to look like Cleopatra she hired Oscar and Emmy-winning makeup artist Bill Corso to transform her face.

The star looked like she'd had a Swarovski facial with her face covered in crystals, all of which had been carefully placed to highlight her cheeks, lips and the bridge of her nose.

The mum-of-four had New York-based costumier Martin Izquierdo help with her glittering Cleopatra outfit. She found the inspiration for her costume from the any movies made about the Egyptian queen Cleopatra.

Heidi said: “So many movies have been about her and so many actresses have played her in the movies - I thought that would be a great costume.”

At her previous Halloween parties the star has dressed as a Hindu goddess, a crow and a robot.

The 39-year-old arrived at the party with Santa Claus as her date and later got cozy with her bodyguard/boyfriend, Martin Kristen who dressed as Batman.

This year’s event benefited the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts of The American Red Cross and on Sunday, Heidi delivered aid to storm-ravaged areas in the Long Island area of New York.
