There are obviously a ton of celebs who like to go all-out on Halloween, but at this point, the holiday and the name Heidi Klum are pretty much synonymous. To say Klum loves Halloween would be an understatement, and her world-famous annual celeb Halloween party is practically a Hollywood institution now that she’s been throwing it for nearly two decades.
So how could we not celebrate her commitment to Halloween? Let’s look back at Heidi’s scariest, coolest, and most amazing Halloween costumes through the years.

As Lady Godiva in 2001: Heidi rocked a long blonde wig and nude bodysuit as she rode a horse (!!) into her party. The woman knows how to make an entrance.

As Betty Boop in 2002: The curly black wig, major eye makeup, and bee-stung lips make this costume good; the brows drawn on much higher up on her forehead make it great.

As Golden Predator in 2003: This costume is so absolutely incredible, we don’t even know where to start. How about the golden cable wigs? The metallic teeth? The full-body golden glitter? Next-level stuff.

As a red witch in 2004: Heidi predicted the ascendance of the Red Woman by like ten years. Winter is coming, indeed.

As a rock ‘n’ roll vampire in 2005: Big hair, dark under-eye circles, dramatic teeth… no, it’s not Ozzy Osbourne, it’s Heidi’s amazing 80s vampire costume.

As the apple and the snake in 2006: One thing that we love about Heidi is that she’s totally willing to commit to looking crazy/amazing when the look calls for it. She’s dressed as an apple and she has a snake on her head – and yet she looks incredible.

As a cat in 2007: Cat makeup can get a little tired around Halloween, but Heidi kicks it up a notch with golden contact lenses, kitty teeth, and latex-mounted whiskers.

As Kali in 2008: In full-body blue paint, additional arms, red contacts, and a massive wig, this was one of Heidi’s boldest Halloween looks yet.

As a crow (with former husband Seal) in 2009: In case you can’t tell, Heidi is the bird on the right. Her face is painted totally black, so that, from the front, it just looks like the mouth is a gaping void of darkness. Terrifying.

As a robot in 2010: Not only is this woman on stilts and rocking a wig that’s positively RuPaulian in its sheer size, she’s also covered in purple glittery body paint from head to collarbone. Amazing.

As a skinned cadaver in 2011: While the majority of this costume is a latex body suit, her face is all makeup. Reportedly, it took four hours just to paint her face!

As Cleopatra in 2012: Girl has never found a wig that she didn’t love, but what’s really special about this look is that for the party, she glued thousands of golden crystals onto her face so that her skin sparkled. That’s Halloween spirit.

As Old Heidi in 2014: This look involved age spots airbrushed onto her entire body, varicose veins handmade from latex and applied to her legs and feet, and even a hunched spine. Fun fact: The makeup team responsible for this look are Oscar winners!

Um, yeah. This is convincing.

As a butterfly in 2014: With handmade prosthetics that covered her entire nose and eyes and a wingspan like a small airplane, this look is truly showstopping.

As Jessica Rabbit in 2015: Heidi, are you in there? Klum is unrecognizable in this one.

As herself in 2016: What do you dress up as when you’ve already outdone yourself time and again? Yourself, of course! Klum rolled up to her 2016 bash with an army of clones. Pretty creepy.
