Oshry — the successful influencer behind GirlWithNoJob and co-host of 'The Toast' podcast — took PEOPLE behind the scenes of her two-hour getting ready process
"I just finished rewatching The Nanny, and it’s such an underrated show," Oshry tells PEOPLE exclusively. "To me she represents Jewish pride. She symbolizes all the things I love about being Jewish — a deep love of food and family."
The influencer and podcast host dove headfirst into putting together her outfit based on Fran Drescher's character from the pilot episode, which originally aired in November 1993.
"I spent a couple days searching for a replica [from] different vintage stores, reselling websites and eventually found something really similar on Etsy," she shares of the animal-print outfit she pulled together to wear to Heidi Klum's annual Halloween bash. "Fran Fine was a fashion queen."
Oshry didn't put her look together alone, though — she called on a team for assistance. "I wasn’t brave enough to do my own glam for Heidi’s Halloween party," she admits. "If I’m going to be in the same room as actual celebrities, I need a face that is beat to the Gods!"
The Toast host's Fran Fine look comes after last her first costume of the 2023 Halloween season — the Ozempic skeleton, which she wore after one of her commenters called her that on social media. Ever the candid personality, though, Oshry tells PEOPLE that she didn't want to hide the fact that she'd used Ozempic as part of her health journey — and that meant pulling it into her Halloween costume.
"I wanted to be transparent because I felt like going on a drug like Ozempic had such a negative stereotype and I wanted to combat that," she says. "Once I shared my journey with Ozempic, I realized there are so many people, like myself, having life-changing experiences with the drug but are made to feel shameful about it. If more of those stories were being shared widely then I think the stigma would go away. So I’m glad I did my part!"
Ahead, see Oshry's getting-ready process for Klum's Halloween party — including a little cameo from her husband, Ben Soffer, who also dressed up as Mr. Sheffield, which she called the "cherry on top."
