Zurich party king Reto Hanselmann right in the middle
So was Heidi Klum’s Halloween party
In New York, a scary party, which cannot be surpassed in terms of extravagance, is coming to an end. As every year, the host surprises with her costume – party king Reto Hanselmann also had fun and gives Blick impressions of the mega event.
It-Boy Reto Hanselmann celebrated with “Worm” hostess Heidi Klum at their big Halloween party in New York.
In Central Europe, most are preparing their coffee, while in New York “GNTM” producer Heidi Klum (49) is just finishing her annual Halloween party at the legendary Moxy Hotel. Your guests put in a lot of effort. Twitter boss Elon Musk (51) came as a gladiator, the Swiss party king Reto Hanselmann (41) showed up as a pirate after his own break. But one stole the show: hostess Klum appeared as a bizarre worm – her husband Tom Kaulitz (33) made the creepy fisherman who threw the fishing rod after his wife.
Reto Hanselmann reports to Blick via voice message immediately after the party is over. He is doing well given the “circumstances”, he says with a laugh – “actually amazing for my age!” He cleaned up until 11 a.m. Swiss time on Sunday after celebrating his own Halloween party.
“Heidi asked how I was doing”
The atmosphere in New York’s Moxy Hotel was pleasant – and not excessively boisterous, as is sometimes the case in Switzerland. “That’s also because everyone at this party knows everyone,” says the Zurich native. In conversation with Klum, he also found it particularly nice how, despite all the hustle and bustle, she asked about Hanselmann’s own party the day before. “She asked me how I was doing,” he says happily. And of course he was also impressed by Klum’s worm outfit: “She actually came as bait, Tom as an angler – you have to come up with an idea like that first!” However, she only wore the complete costume for about half an hour. Hanselmann was also particularly fascinated by the appearance of Tesla boss Elon Musk: “You read what this person has done and achieved – and then you see him three or four meters next to you. That’s crazy!”
And how does the party king see the direct comparison to his own party? “Of course I have to do a lot more, it has to be a lot more of a show,” admits Hanselmann. When it comes to Halloween, the Swiss always imagined a big spectacle. “And because I’m not Heidi Klum, I have to bring people into their own world,” he continues. His Halloween bash must have a certain sustainability – “for me, people have to go home and tell how bombastic the party was.”
