There are only a few celebrities that have everyone waiting to see what their Halloween costumes will be, and Heidi Klum is at the top of that list. Klum’s costumes are not just mere costumes, either. Whether she’s dressed as Jessica Rabbit from Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, the werewolf from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” music video, or even the iconic green ogre we all know and love named Shrek, the model undergoes a complete physical change—going all out with her Halloween looks with prosthetics, makeup, and props. Everyone wonders how Klum will top last year’s look, but somehow she always delivers. Sometimes she shows up to her own annual party, and is totally unrecognizable by the cavalcade of famous guests. Here, a look back at her wildest, wackiest, and weirdest Halloween costumes over the years.

Klum wasn’t joking around when she said her moto for her 2023 look was “Go big or go home.” After leaving fans bewildered as to what she could possibly from a preview earlier in the day, the model stepped out for her annual Halloween bash dressed as a giant peacock—complete with a velour bodysuit and bird prosthetics. She was surrounded by several other people who imitated the creature’s feathers and somehow balanced on someone’s thighs during her grand entrance. Talk about commitment.

Yes, that is Klum behind that costume as she slithered into her 2022 Halloween party dressed as a worm.


In 2020 and 2021, Klum cancelled her annual bash due to the COVID pandemic—but that didn’t stop her from dressing like a zombie mom and sharing it with everyone on social media.
