After last year's controversial, and what looked like very restricting, depiction of the Hindu goddess Kati (below), one might predict Heidi Klum would tone down her choice of Halloween costume. Nope. The supermodel and her hubby Seal dressed as crows for their annual All Hallow's Eve extravaganza. At West Hollywood's Voyeur, the event highlight for us was the contrast of creativity with a total lack thereof. For example, Paris Hilton and Doug Reinhardt dressed as the tooth fairy and a tooth, while Rachel Zoe and Steve Bing were a billionaire and a stylist. What a coincidence.
The striking part about Paris and her boy toy's matching outfits is really how obvious it is that poor Doug is being led to all forms of emasculation. He looks totally ridiculous, as Paris not only very clearly wears the pants in the relationship, but also kept the more adorable tutu for herself.
And then there's the complete absence of costume. Steve Bing opted for this route, or maybe he was dressing as irony, since billionaires are not typically expected in a t-shirt and jeans. While low on holiday spirit, if a boatload of wealth should buy anything, maybe not having to dress up like an idiot is appropriately high on that list. Is that an excuse?
Also very much normally attired was Rachel Zoe, sporting her typical caftan, but with more eye makeup. When your job involves dressing to impress, all the time, does that mean there exists not one surprise of dress for a single day each year? For Zoe, apparently not. However, this is one style cue we'll happily disregard.
A few great looks also choosing to ignore the rules of fashion were Kelly Osbourne and her man Luke Howell, who dressed as an egg and bacon. Trevor Donovan from 90210 also looked fantastic. He was an army something-or-other. We don't really care, he's just incredibly handsome.

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
