Heidi Klum shops for her Halloween party

From Chic to Freak: The Best Ever Costumes at Heidi Klum’s Halloween Party

When you’re a celeb you don’t celebrate Halloween by popping over to a mate’s house to bob for apples – you try to snare a ticket to the hottest party instead. Heidi Klum has been hosting her legendary Halloween parties since 2000, where a who’s who of movers and shakers dress to impress in creative costumes – and none more so than the supermodel herself. From Vishnu to Mr and Mrs Gremlin, let’s take a look at both her and her guests best ever costumes.

Heidi Klum - Jessica Rabbit

Unsurprisingly Heidi always steals the limelight, and the Jessica Rabbit get-up she rocked back in 2015 certainly didn’t disappoint. Of course being Heidi she didn’t just settle for a red frock and a red wig – instead she enlisted the help of Hollywood prosthetic make-up artists, who spent hours transforming her face and body into the glamorous cartoon character.

Phillipe Blond and David Blond – Gremlins

Design duo Phillipe and David Blond are known for creating beautiful outfits for the likes of Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Beyoncé. At Heidi’s 12th annual party however they shunned fashion in favour of these hideously charming Gremlin costumes – complete with full-face masks.

Heidi Klum – Vishnu

One of Heidi’s most iconic Halloween party looks was this Vishnu outfit back in 2008. As well as rocking eight arms and blue make-up, she completed the Indian deity look with lots of gold jewellery and a skirt made of severed hands…

Ximena Navarette – Miss Universe

Back in 2010, when Mexican beauty Ximena Navarette was ruling the world as Miss Universe, she attended Heidi’s bash dressed as… well, herself. Looking runway ready in a chic black outfit, she finished her look with an amazing universe-inspired headpiece.

Heidi Klum – Skinned

In 2011 Heidi went for something a little more minimal… as in, even more minimal than her birthday suit. Her incredible transformation, no doubt courtesy of her special effects chums, was dramatically unveiled to photographers when she was wheeled in on a hospital bed by two bloody surgeons.

Pink – Sexy Clown

We’ve seen sexy cats, sexy devils, and even sexy witches – but never a sexy clown. Back in 2008 however, singer Pink thought she’d give the look a go, and we think she pulled it off quite nicely.

Heidi Klum – Lots of Heidis!

Not just one, but lots of Heidi's

Whether it’s Halloween or not, Heidi knows how to accessorize – and for the 17th annual party last year, she accessorised with not one, not two, but FIVE lookalikes of herself. Donning identical outfits and carefully made up with prosthetic masks, it was hard to spot the real supermodel among her imposters. We imagine it made mingling with her guests more efficient though!

Barbara Lagazzele – Peacock

Despite Heidi’s dopplegangers, hair guru Barbara Lagazzele came close to stealing the limelight herself in 2016. Dressed in this dazzling peacock number, she didn’t have to be asked to fan out her festive feathers for waiting photographers.

Heidi Klum – Sunset Moth

Of course, Heidi had already done the wing thing herself back in 2014. Dressed as a vibrant sunset moth complete with antennae, she flaunted her colourful costume in Times Square ahead of her party.

So what will you be dressing as this year? No pressure.
