It’s hard to forget Heidi Klum’s Halloween costume from last year. The supermodel, who is known for her outlandish spooky season garb and her A-list Halloween parties, dressed as a giant, realistic-looking worm.

The 50-year-old SI Swimsuit legend really committed to her character for the evening, as she laid horizontally on the ground for red carpet interviews, while her husband, Tom Kaulitz, dressed as a fisherman for the occasion.

Klum recently reflected on last year’s costume, along with others from prior years, with People StyleWatch, and giggled about doing her “interviews on the floor, because I thought it was comical.” The resulting virality of her costume also brought a smile to Klum’s face.

“It just made me so happy, all these memes and all these funny things that happened from this, because ultimately, that’s what I want at the end, you know?” she stated. “I want people to smile when they see it, or they go, ‘Wow, this is crazy, I’ve never seen something like this.’”

Klum also noted that her team initially pushed back on the worm costume idea, but she was adamant about not changing her mind. While we won’t know what idea the supermodel has percolating for this year’s event until she hits the red carpet, Klum teased that she’s dealing with a similar issue this year.

“I’m kind of having the same moment again with this year, everyone’s like, ‘Can we have a plan B?’ I’m not good with plan B,” Klum confessed. “My goal is to not let any of my Halloween fans down.”
