With the help of some expertly applied prosthetics, Heidi Klum managed to clone herself five times for Halloween.
The supermodel arrived to her annual costume bash at New York City’s Vandal dressed and ready to impress. However, unlike past years, she brought not one, but five dates along with her—carbon copies of herself.
Posing on the red carpet of her 17th annual Halloween party sponsored by SVEDKA, the 43-year-old America’s Got Talent and her bevy of blond imitators blew kisses to photographers and stood hip to hip as fans marveled at the uncanny likeness between the women. All six ladies stood tall in sexy champagne designer bodysuits and nude knee-high boots with Klum’s signature wavy tresses cascading down their shoulders.
“I think it’s going to freak out my kids a lot,” the Project Runway host told E! News.

While it only took roughly an hour and a half for Klum to get ready for her big night, her sidekicks weren’t so lucky. They all had on prosthetic noses, chins and other accents to mirror the German native, but all that makeup took hours to apply and even made it difficult to speak.
For the supermodel, it was certainly an easier getup in comparison to past years. Last year, she stepped out as Jessica Rabbit, complete with a large prosthetic chest and bum. In 2013, she arrived as a 95-year-old version of herself—prosthetic varicose veins and all. Needless to say, sometimes it’s just easier to dress up as yourself.

All throughout the day, Klum teased fans with cryptic Instagram photos and videos of the hair, makeup and prosthetics needed to make her vision come to life. Dyed and curled wigs lined one table while on another, the models stood patiently as they got their nails painted the same nude shade of polish.
“Sooooooooooo much to do,” Klum teased in a caption. “Are you seeing double, triple, quadruple, quintuple, sextuple?!”
There were plenty of stars in attendance seeing sextuple. Gabrielle Union, Tony Award winner Cynthia Erivo and Ice-T and Cocoarrived to the star-studded bash to get in the Halloween spirit and await yet another creative costume from Klum.
Job well done, Heidi—onward to brainstorms for 2017!
