In the increasingly competitive world of celebrity Halloween costumes, Heidi Klum is the undisputed queen. The model has a long history of putting together the most elaborate and impressive Halloween costumes to be seen. If you can't get over her eerie 2021 get-up, here's a look back on some of her previous costumes.
Klum is well-known for going all out on Halloween, having hosted an extravagant Halloween party for the last couple of decades. Sadly, she was unable to throw her party in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but that didn't stop her from getting all dressed up. Still, it's hard for a champion like Klum to keep topping her own previous work, so fans may debate about which costume was her greatest.
Despite being a professional model, Klum has worn a diverse range of costumes. She has dressed in scant outfits as well as mounds of fur, always prioritizing detail over flattery. Over the years, she has even seemed to choose some costumes that were meta in nature, making a statement about the holiday itself and the typical costumes that people choose.
The years of success set the bar incredibly high for Klum, but she seems to be up to the challenge. These days, she even posts teasers in the weeks leading up to Halloween, showing how much work goes into each costume. Let's not forget what Klum has already made in her years as a Halloween icon so far. Here is a look at some of her most amazing costumes over the years.
Klum celebrated the turn of the millennium as Lady Godiva in 2000. As if the head-to-toe sparkles and the flowing blond wig were not enough, she rode a real live horse into the party, much to the horse's apparent dismay.prevnext
Klum dressed strategically in 2006 to hide the growing baby bump she then sported. She opted for a bulky apple costume, but adorned it with a serpentine form as well, making a Biblical statement out of a necessary costume.prevnext
A cat costume is one of the most common generic choices, but Klum put her personal spin on it. Her cat costume in 2007 more closely resembled a cast member from the Broadway play of the same name. She wore fur from head to toe, and topped it off with a massive set of platform heels.prevnext
Hindu Goddess Kali
Klum took on the form of Kali, the Hindu goddess of death. The outfit was remarkably intricate, with multiple fake arms and bloody severed heads and limbs all around her.prevnext
Perhaps Klum's eeriest costume was also the most realistic: that of a skinned human body in 2011. She at the party on a gurney with two bloodied doctors in tow. Klum has probably never left so little to the imagination.prevnext
In 2013, Klum gave a look into her own future when she dressed as an old woman at her Halloween party. For those looking like an excuse to spend Halloween night sitting down rather than mingling at a party, this is an ingenious costume choice.prevnext
In 2014 Heidi transformed into a gigantic butterfly, incorporating huge rainbow-hued wings and bulging bug eyes. Her Victoria's Secret runway days came in handy.prevnext
Klum went all out for her Jessica Rabbit costume in 2015. The costume took hours of prosthetics and make-up, but the pictures show that it was all worth it.prevnext
Fiona from 'Shrek'
In 2018 Heidi enlisted her now husband, Tom Kaulitz and transformed into Shrek and Fiona! To top it all off, she even brought a stroller of green ogre babies...the perfect accessories!prevnext
