Heidi Klum's Most Unsexy Costume Ever

By CHELSEA HUANG

Heidi Klum may be the queen of Halloween, but the "America's Got Talent" judge revealed she's fallen victim to a nasty curse.

"I usually lose a lot of toenails after [Halloween]. I'm trying not to lose a toenail this year. Because I dance a lot, and the shoes are too tight," she told AOL at the annual Angel Ball benefitting cancer research on Monday.

The mother of four, 42, has stepped out in a variety of head-turning costumes at her annual Halloween bash, including a true, bug-eyed butterfly, Lady Godiva and a Hindu goddess -- and while she loves them all, like a proud mama, she said one look takes the cake.

"My most favorite was probably when I was about 95 years old, two years ago," she said.

Klum teased this year's costume in a series of head-scratching Instagram posts surrounded by a massive team of artists -- but the large-scale production wasn't always the case.

So yucky but so worth it in the end 🎃 #heidihalloween #heidiklumhalloween

"Things have changed and evolved over the years, and I've met such amazing people along the way. Years ago, I did a lot of it myself, the makeup and the hair, helped sew things together and tried to match my face to the rest of the crazy outfit and now I've found all these amazing artists, so that makes it more special."

Klum was in NYC accepting the Angel of Light Award at the annual Angel Ball benefitting Gabrielle's Angel Foundation.

"When you go to an event it's always fun, you see a lot of friends, and there's a lot of chitty chat, but then you hear a lot of personal stories and of course this goes to your heart, of course," she said about the popular charity gala. "There are a lot of amazing people who attend these events -- all the doctors, scientists, nurses, all these people who really give their lives to help others, and it's very humbling."
