Husbands came and went, but Heidi Klum’s Halloween party is a pretty constant tradition for the supermodel and “Project Runway” host. The German-born beauty puts a lot of thought into her costumes, and tops herself almost every time.
“I start thinking of ideas months before Halloween, and I have an amazing team who makes the impossible possible. I don’t really have a system for picking my costume each year, they just kind of come to me. It’s definitely not a last-minute decision. It takes months of preparation,” Klum told Parade magazine.
Check out Heidi Klum’s craziest Halloween costumes in anticipation of the stunning idea she’ll probably pull out for this year’s Halloween party.
S&M Milkmaid – 2000
Heidi Klum’s first New York Halloween bash saw the supermodel combine her cultural with more daring sensibilities. The end result was an S&M milkmaid in black leather, along with a spiked collar and bracelets.
Lady Godiva – 2001
Taking it to a whole new level the following year, one of Heidi Klum’s craziest Halloween costumes was inspired by Lady Godiva, and the supermodel and TV host arrived to her own party on horseback, with a floor-length blonde wig.
Betty Boop – 2002
The first animated sex symbol, Betty Boop, was Heidi’s choice for her third annual Halloween party. Accompanied by her first husband, Ric Pipino, who also wore a cartoonish costume, Klum really commited to the idea, from her oversized lashes to a sexy red dress.

Golden Goddess – 2003
Definitely one of Heidi Klum’s craziest Halloween costumes, her golden getup from 2003 was a head to toe look, and the supermodel even decided to go for golden teeth, with the help of a custom-made grill, to complete her scary alien costume.
Red Witch – 2004
Even when going for a relatively safe concept for a Halloween costume, Heidi Klum knows how to impress. As the red witch, she wore a huge wig and even had a skeleton hanging on her back. Klum started her relationship with Seal, who showed up at the party as the Phantom of the Opera.
Sexy Vampire – 2005
Before the “Twilight” crazy, one of Heidi Klum’s craziest Halloween costumes was her sexy vampire outfit from 2005. With custom made fangs and a huge wig, she was joined by Seal as a... cop.
The Original Sin – 2006
For the first couple costume Heidi and Seal wore at one of her Halloween parties, the singer went as Eve, while Heidi embodied the original sin, with an apple suit that hide her 8-months-pregnant belly and a snake that completed the look.
Cat – 2007
While Catwoman is still a popular idea for the holiday, one of Heidi Klum’s craziest Halloween costumes was just... cat. The supermodel had special contact lenses, whiskers and a collar. The finishing touch was the pendant on the collar. It read “If found, please return to Seal.”
Kali – 2008
Dressed as Kali, the Hindu goddess of destruction, for her 9th Annual Halloween Party, Heidi Klum definitely turned heads. The blue bodysuit and paint were crazy enough, but the “Project Runway” host also donned the extra limbs.

Raven – 2009
In another couples costume, Heidi and Seal were covered in black feathers for the 2009 party. It’s definitely one of Heidi Klum’s craziest Halloween costumes, since it also featured a raven’s head.
Alien Transformer – 2010
With purple glittery skin, Heidi Klum channeled her inner superhero, but ended up looking as more of an alien transformer for her 11th Annual Halloween Party.
Visible Woman – 2011
Definitely one of Heidi Klum’s craziest Halloween costumes, “Visible Woman” is basically a lesson in human anatomy. Her skintight bodysuit was painted to showcase tendons and muscles.
Ape – 2011
For a second Halloween party in NYC, Heidi and Seal went for another costume couple. The two were unrecognizable as anatomically correct apes.
Old Heidi – 2013
After her 2012 party was canceled because of Hurricane Sandy, the following year showcased one of Heidi Klum’s craziest Halloween costumes. “There was so much talk about me turning 40 this year and what it felt like to be older. I thought, really? I will show you old!” Klum explained after showing up as her 95 year old self.
