Supermodel-turned-TV star Heidi Klum is the Queen of Halloween — there's no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Starting in 2000, she has hosted an epic Halloween party with a guest list of Hollywood's finest, including J.Lo, Chrissy Teigen, and Jessica Alba. But let's be clear: Heidi's costumes are always leagues above everyone else's.
After the 45-year-old gave fans a sneak peek at her costume this year, many thought she was going to be George Washington or Gungan from . But the beauty won Halloween by dressing as Fiona from the movie Shrek. Her boyfriend Tom Kaulitz completely nailed his own Shrek look.
You can't celebrate Halloween without busting out a "Thriller" dance. She brought the 1982 music video to the streets of New York City in this nearly-identical Michael Jackson outfit.
You know you're a big deal when you dress as yourself for Halloween. Yes, really. Heidi arrived at her 2016 party in her Victoria's Secret best with an army of lookalikes.
Va-va-voom. Inspired by the leading lady in , Heidi enhanced her figure with prosthetics, bold makeup, and a curve-hugging red dress.
Um, did we just take a trip to Cirque de Soleil?! Heidi waltzed through the streets of New York City in this bold and beautiful butterfly costume, massive wingspan included.
The details on this Granny costume are everrrrrything. She used makeup and prosthetics to age her skin with varicose veins and wrinkles.
Now there's the Heidi we know and love! She let her natural beauty shine in this dramatic Cleopatra costume, complete with a gilded gold headdress.
Talk about commitment. At her first Halloween party of 2011, she dressed as "the Visible Women" and had men dressed as surgeons wheel her out on a gurney.
A few days later, the couple (oh, we miss them so) did a complete 180 in this head-to-toe hairy costume. They leaned on prosthetics for a life-like ape look.
Kudos to Heidi for walking down an entire red carpet on stilts. Oh, and for covering her entire body in purple latex.
What's better than one crow? A whole murder of 'em! Seal matched his then-wife in this intricate, feathered costume. To no one's surprise, the model admitted that the beak and wings made dancing, drinking, and eating nearly impossible.
She took a cultural shift in 2008 when she dressed as Kali, the Hindu goddess of death and time. This blue, multi-armed costume was a showstopper (and still is TBH).
How does she make this classic Halloween costume look brand new? Well, a custom catsuit might be key...
Heidi, is that you? In a year overrun by Charlie's Angels costumes, Klum went to the Bible for inspiration for her Eve and the Forbidden Fruit costume. In case you were wondering, Seal dressed as Eve. Yep.
Is she dressed as Cher? A vampire? Well, she may just be a cross between the two in this vampy getup.
Because every witch needs her own broomstick and a skeleton hanging on for dear life, right?
Okay, she's not quite Betty White's style of Golden Girl. The model gave off major gladiator vibes in this metallic gold number.
The lashes! The curls! The cigarette holder! She wore a silky ensemble to become everyone's favorite animated flapper.
Now, this is an entrance. Maybe this is where is Lady Gaga got inspiration for s? Regardless, Heidi let her hair down for this over-the-top ensemble inspired by English folklore.
It kind of looks like the America's Got Talent host raided her angsty teenage closet. Or her local Hot Topic. Something's telling us she didn't do either to create this leather-clad look for her first Halloween bash.
