Age may be nothing but a number, but for Heidi Klum, it translates onto one helluva Halloween getup.

The celebrated costume aficionado, known for her outlandish outfits in years past, was back to her old tricks – her very old tricks – when she dressed up as a wrinkled elderly lady for her famed Halloween bash Thursday in New York City.

The supermodel, 40, was virtually unrecognizable as she pulled out all the stops for the eye-popping look.

Arriving at Marquee nightclub, Klum appeared in full-on special-effects makeup, complete with wrinkled neck, stringy gray hair, liver spots and a cane. (Oscar-winning makeup wiz Bill Corso, along with Mike Marino, were behind the astonishing transformation.)

Still, she was one stylish old lady, decked out in a Chanel-like suit.

A day earlier, Klum teased out her costume on Instagram, posting a photo that showed the makeup pros hard at work on her look.

She also proudly flaunted the final result, uploading a snapshot of her in a car en route to the party.

Klum is known for her spectacular Halloween costumes: In the past, she’s dressed up as everything from a whacked-out sexy robot to Cleopatra.

Oh, that tricky Klum: What a treat.
