Heidi Klum’s Best Halloween Looks

From old lady to Jessica Rabbit to Cleopatra, the model never misses

Heidi Klum is the queen of Halloween. For the last two decades, the model and TV host has thrown the most epic Halloween party in the industry. She takes the holiday extremely seriously and she rarely misses with her extra-well-planned costumes.

Due to COVID-19, the nine-time SI Swimsuit model had to put pause on throwing her bash the last two Octobers, but that didn’t stop her from celebrating. She posted a spooky trailer on Instagram with the caption “HERE IT IS 🎃 Normally I’d be hosting my annual Halloween party on Sunday night … but this year things are still looking a little different. So instead, my family and I want to be the first to wish you a safe and spooky Halloween weekend. #HeidiHalloween2021”

Klum’s extremely extravagant costumes often require hours of special effects makeup (she has also incorporated prosthetics and additional props). Who knows what she’ll come up with this year? "I'm just gonna say, it will be my best one yet," Klum told TooFab. "You just watch. You just watch me!"

In the meantime, here are some of her best looks from the past.
