Celebrities rarely do Halloween by halves, but no one in the showbiz world takes it more seriously than German supermodel Heidi Klum.
Every year the mum-of-four throws a spooky-themed bash attended by a host of famous faces and ensures she takes centre stage with an elaborate costume – each one more impressive than the last.
The America’s Got Talent host, 42, kicked it all off in 2000 when she dressed up as a gothic Heidi. The following year she went as Lady Godiva in an all-white outfit and flowing wig and made a very grand entrance on a horse.
2001: Lady Godiva (and horse).
2002: The model stuns as Betty Boop.
2010 was another eye-popping evening when she turned up to her bash as a superhero dressed in an elaborate red and purple plastic costume which required her to balance on stilts.
2003: She’s a cool, gold alien.
2004: The red witch. “I loved my costume and I love Halloween,” Klum said at the time.
2005: A disco vampire?
In 2011 she was dressed up as a terrifying dead body that had to be wheeled onto the red carpet on a stretcher, but the following year she decided to go glam and dazzled as Cleopatra.
In 2013, to poke fun at herself turning 40, she transformed into a wrinkly grandmother, while last year she wowed as a butterfly complete with full body paint and huge sequin-splattered wings.
2006: Eve’s Apple from the Garden of Eden.
2008: Kali the Hindu Goddess.
2009: A sexy black crow.
The star documented the intricate and lengthy process for her fans on social media as she went from bare-faced beauty to show-stopping butterfly.
While her extravagant costumes rarely fail to disappoint, the model came under fierce criticism when she dressed up as the Hindu goddess Kali. At the time, Hindu-American leaders demanded an apology from the model for “posing as a sacred figure”.
2010: An amazing alien robot.
2011: She means (monkey) business.
2011: Yes, this is her SECOND 2011 Halloween outfit. “It’s kind of like a dead body with the first layer of skin ripped off. It’s basically like me naked,” she explained.
2011: Pulling out ALL the stops.
But what’s the supermodel going as this year? She teased her fans with her latest inventive outfit at the start of the month, which she admitted she started planning for last November.
Heidi can be seen in one video standing in her bikini while being lathered in blue paste. Another shows a team working on prosthetics for her head and torso before the final photo sees her posing in a full body cast.
