Supermodel Heidi Klum outdid herself by transforming into a realistic-looking butterfly for her annual Halloween party on Friday (31Oct14).

The Tv personality, who is famed for her elaborate costumes, was unrecognisable as the colourful insect as her nose disappeared under prosthetics and large fly eyes and feelers were attached to her head.

Klum, who documented the lengthy make-up process on her page, wore a multi-coloured leotard with attached wings while the rest of her body was painted blue and purple with black spots.

She celebrated her annual party at TAO Downtown nightclub in New York with guests including Joe Jonas, actor Benjamin MCKenzie, Michelle Trachtenberg and singer Ashanti.

Her previous costumes include a robot, Cleopatra and an old lady.
