Fashion: Heidi Klum's Halloween body suit and more costume ideas

October 27, 2011 |  8:29 am

"Project Runway's" Heidi Klum is known for her interesting Halloween costumes (among other things). This year she is planning one that's really different: A hand-painted body suit by designer Martin Izquierdo that looks like the inside of a body, with all the bones, organs and veins revealed. She plans to wear it to host a party this weekend in Las Vegas; she'll wear a different costume to a party in New York on Monday. [People]  

IKarl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintourf you're still figuring out your own costume, Fashionista has some ideas for how to look like a fashion industry insider, with tips on turning yourself into the likes of Anna Della Russo, Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour (shown with Lagerfeld at left) Rachel Zoe (and her family), Scott Shumann or Garance Dore. Clever idea. I'm pretty sure, though, that most people wouldn't actually be able to guess who you're aping (unless Lagerfeld is your choice -- Chanel's creative director is unmistakable). [Fashionista]

The always busy Lagerfeld has signed a deal with Fossil Inc. to create a line of men's and women's watches to be sold under the Karl Lagerfeld label. [WWD] (Subscription required.) 

Retailer H&M has released some video from its commercial shoot promoting the new Versace capsule collection that's slated to go on sale in mid-November. In one scene, model Lindsey Wixson runs backward in a large spinning hamster wheel; in another, models are trained to march in line in a cage-like structure.

Tamara Eccleston, 27-year-old daughter of Formula One billionaire Bernie Eccleston, really, really, really likes shoes. She showed Closer magazine around her closet, with its 100 pairs of Christian Louboutin heels, 15 pairs of Ugg boots and  20 pairs of sneakers -- among other things. Oh, and her "closet" is actually a spare room in her London apartment. [People] 

Maybe it would be cool to dress as her closet for Halloween ... go with paper cutouts of shoes taped all over your clothes. That's as close as I'll ever get to that number of Louboutins in this lifetime.
