In 2006, Klum was the apple of everyone's eye in this Garden of Eden-inspired costume. Her then husband, Seal, humorously dressed as Eve. Then again, who would say no to a couple's costume with Heidi Klum?
In 2007, the German beauty went with every girl’s Halloween go-to: a cat costume. Only she went the extra mile and slipped into a full body suit, complete with a tail, ears, and whiskers. A feline suitable for a catwalk some may even say…
In 2008, the supermodel committed to ancient Hindu history—and a whole lot of blue paint (and arms, for that matter)—when she appeared at her annual party as Kali, the goddess of time, change, and destruction. This is one of Klum’s most well-known costumes, and came just a year before the blue-faced frenzy of Avatar hit the silver screen.
In 2009, the America’s Got Talent judge was decked out in a feathered frock reminiscent of a certain Beatles song ("Blackbird singing in the dead of night," anyone?) The question remains: was Klum a raven or crow? We’ll let you be the judge.
In 2010, the Sport’s Illustrated model took Halloween to epic proportions, stepping into an eight-foot-tall alien costume. She was barely recognizable with purple skin and crimson hair, looking like something out of a comic book. Hero or villain, this alien transformer costume is definitely the coolest of her collection.
In 2011, the Victoria’s Secret Angel ditched her clothes and undergarments and, wait for it—skin! One of her more memorable costumes, this muscle suit was eerily real. Klum looked like she walked right out of the BODIES exhibit and onto her party’s red carpet. This getup gives a whole new meaning to x-ray vision.
In 2012, Klum decided to call off her annual Halloween bash after the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy. But the Project Runway host and judge revealed that her costume would have been a gilded Cleopatra. She posed in an extravagant headdress, necklace, and a cleavage-baring gown worthy of Egyptian royalty. Much less scary, much more glamorous.
In 2013, Klum really threw us for a loop with her Halloween costume. We know, we know, this isn’t sexy in the least bit. But you’ve got to admit, the woman has an excellent sense of humor—and an excellent Oscar-winning makeup team. The artists transformed the 40-year-old bombshell into a full-blown elderly woman: age spots, varicose veins, wrinkles, and gray hair. Klum had it all. But hey, Halloween has never been for the faint of heart.
It is pretty obvious that Klum would rather drop dead than show up to a party in an uninspired Halloween costume. Maybe that’s an indicator of her upcoming outfit. This Halloween marks the 15th anniversary of the event. Something tells us she’ll be bringing out all the stops.
