Heidi serious about Halloween

Heidi Klum has advised people who haven't put any effort into their Halloween costume not to bother showing it in public.

The German model's love of the spooky holiday is legendary, as is her dedication to outdoing everyone when it comes to her outfit. She has dressed as a monkey, human body without any skin, Cleopatra and an alien transformer in the past and has vowed never to look anything less than inspiring when she is celebrating October 31.

"I take Halloween very seriously, so I’m not a fan of a thrown together costume, but in an absolute pinch, look around at what items you have around your house. You’d be surprised what you can come up with. Or cut two holes in a bed sheet and be a ghost," she told "But seriously, I’d rather stay home than go out in an uninspired costume."

Heidi has a crack team of helpers who ensure any idea she has becomes reality. She enlists make-up artists and designers to make each year's look bigger and better than before.

"I start thinking of ideas months before Halloween, and I have an amazing team who makes the impossible possible," she explained. "I don’t really have a system for picking my costume each year, they kind of just come to me. It’s definitely not a last-minute decision. It takes months of preparation.”

As well as looking the part, Heidi ensures she and her friends can make the occasion too. She throws a party each year and insists everyone works hard to come up with unusual ideas for their looks.

"I want people to strive to have a better costume than me," she said. "I want my guests to really wow me! It’s so much fun when I’m looking at someone in their costume and it takes me a few minutes to figure out it is one of my closest friends!”

Heidi isn't the only star who is getting into the holiday spirit at the moment. Paris Hilton can't wait to dress up at the end of the month and has started looking around for the perfect outfit.

The socialite has been posting pictures of looks she is considering, including one of a racy black bikini.

"This would make a good 50 Shades Of Grey Halloween Costume or even Bondage Barbie...(sic)," she captioned the snap on Instagram.

Paris also added images of her wearing a unicorn's head and chatting to an alien as she shopped in a costume store.
