Supermodel Heidi Klum has been forced to axe her famous New York Halloween party due to America's superstorm, which rocked the city on Monday (29Oct12).

Each year the Project Runway star hosts one of the Big Apple's most popular costume bashes and she spares no expense with her outrageous disguises, which have previously included everything from a cat to a dead body.

However, thanks to post-tropical cyclone Sandy, which has caused flooding and power outages up and down the east coast after a night of high winds and heavy rain, Klum has cancelled the event, which was scheduled to take place at the Finale nightclub on Wednesday (31Oct12).

But the beauty, who was planning to dress up as Cleopatra for her first Halloween bash without estranged husband Seal, hasn't ruled out the idea of pushing forward with her plans at a later date and combining her two favourite holidays into one celebration for a spooky Christmas extravaganza.

In a post on Twitter.com, she writes, "Hope you & your loved ones are safe after the storm. Canceling my Halloween party... postponing to a haunted Christmas."
