The queen of Halloween is back. On Tuesday, Heidi Klum, 50, arrived at her annual Halloween bash with an entire team for her costume. For this year’s celebration, she went as a peacock, requiring the help of others for the peacock's tail feathers.

Posing on the red carpet during her arrival at Marquee New York, she (and her colorful crew) stacked on top of each other, almost like a Cirque du Soleil act, to transform into a large, beautiful bird.

At the center was Klum in a cobalt blue bodysuit. The America’s Got Talent judge wore an elaborate headpiece with a finely crafted beak.

Klum spoke exclusively to PEOPLE on the red carpet about her inspiration for this year’s costume.

“I wanted to do a costume with many, many people. I wanted to have a bunch of people and we all become one thing. And for me, in my mind, that one thing was the peacock,” she says.

The businesswoman added that she flew to Montreal to figure out how to stack everyone. “My feet are a different pattern so my feet melt into his legs,” she tells PEOPLE, explaining how their placement was important for the hues of her costume.
