A History Of Heidi Klum's Epic Halloween Costumes

No one plays dress-up quite like Ms. Klum.

No one does Halloween better than Heidi Klum. The supermodel truly embraces the spirit of the spooky holiday by designing, crafting and wearing the most creative and, at times, over-the-top costumes. From transforming herself into an old lady to donning a full butterfly outfit, Klum never misses an opportunity to play dress-up. 

"I start thinking of ideas months before Halloween, and I have an amazing team who makes the impossible possible," Klum told Parade in 2013, adding, "I take Halloween very seriously, so I’m not a fan of a thrown-together costume ... I’d rather stay home than go out in an uninspired costume.”

Here's proof that Klum lives by that statement:
