Heidi Klum dons strapless snakeskin dress to first taping of AGT spin-off The Champions in LA

America’s Got Talent judge Heidi Klum donned a strapless snakeskin maxi-dress for the first taping of NBC’s spin-off competition The Champions in Los Angeles on Sunday.

The 45-year-old Emmy winner – who relies on stylist duo Rob Zangardi & Mariel Haenn – paired her animal-print frock with a black maxi-cardigan, slides, bag, and aviator shades.

Hairstylist Lorenzo Martin coiffed the German-born presenter’s flaxen waves while make-up artist Linda Hay applied plenty of highlighter on her cheekbones.

Backstage, Heidi – who boasts 14.5M social media followers – shared a silly filtered selfie of herself dancing while clad in a cleavage-boosting black top.

Missing from Klum’s side was her ‘absolutely wonderful’ 29-year-old toyboy, Tokio Hotel guitarist Tom Kaulitz, whom she met on the set of Germany’s Next Top Model in March.

The Burning Man enthusiast has four children – daughter Helene, 14; son Henry, 13; son Johan, 11; daughter Lou, nearly 9 – with ex-husband #2 Seal and ex-partner Flavio Briatore. 

On Tuesday, the HK Intimates creative director – who quit Lifetime’s Project Runway this month – began prepping her Halloween costume with the artists of Prosthetic Renaissance Inc.

Since 2000, Heidi has hosted an annual spooky bash where she’s transformed into the Thriller werewolf, clones, Jessica Rabbit, an old woman, Cleopatra, a Hellraiser skinless look, and more.

Also reporting for duty at the Pasadena Convention Center was Klum’s fellow judge, Mel B, sporting a torn T-shirt, sweatpants, and plum Uggs. 

The 43-year-old mother-of-three wrote on Instagram that she ‘couldn’t resist serving up some leopard print today’ as an ode to her former Spice Girl persona Scary Spice. 

Judge Simon Cowell arrived wearing a white shirt with only two strained buttons fastened alongside his wife of five years, Lauren Silverman.
