Watch: Heidi Klum & Tom Kaulitz Detail Their Halloween Costumes

You can say Heidi Klum's latest Halloween costume was truly out of this world. 

For the milestone 20th year of her signature Halloween party, the supermodel truly outdid herself. After embodying the likes of an ogre, butterfly, werewolf and ape among many, many more, the star topped herself once again as an alien that, let's just say you don't want to get close to. 

Klum and husband Tom Kaulitz debuted their finished looks as they made their grand entrance to new NYC eatery Cathédrale, the site of the star-studded party this year, in a truck with glass walls adorned with biohazard symbols. The supermodel fully embraced her frightening and gory character as she hissed at reporters and photographers on the red carpet. As Kaulitz, it looks like he was dressed as the unfortunate astronaut who discovered her, as evidenced by his bloodied face and broken helmet. 

As per usual, no detail was overlooked for Klum and Kaulitz's costumes. The star spent the entire day getting into costume inside an Amazon Books store in the Big Apple. On Instagram, she announced her location and invited people to visit while also sitting in front of a window for those on the street to observe.

And, for those who couldn't make it to Manhattan, the star also chronicled the getting ready process on Instagram, updating fans as late as 10:30 p.m. that she was indeed still in the makeup chair. 

Of course, the team's hours of long work were worth it as the couple took the party by storm once they showed up. 

A round of applause is certainly deserved—and, like always, we can't wait to see what Heidi comes up with next Halloween!

Until then, take a walk down memory lane and revisit all of her standout costumes over the years with E!'s gallery below!


Heidi Klum was proud as a peacock on the red carpet of her annual party, enlisting 10 people to dress as her beautiful tail feathers and claws. 


Happy Halloworm from Heidi! While hosting her 21st annual Halloween party presented by Now Screaming X Prime Video and Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur, the America's Got Talent judge debuted her worm costume. 


After enjoying a night at Sake No Hana, Heidi changed into a nude sheer bedazzled jumpsuit.


"Halloween is different this year," the reality TV star wrote on Instagram amid the coronavirus pandemic, "but that shouldn't stop us from getting creative at home."


Heidi channeled a creepy mummy for her Halloween short video. It marked one of her many spooky looks in the five-minute clip.


Heidi blended into her walls with this clever costume in 2020.


Heidi, are you there? The model was hard to spot, as she perfectly matched the blue and black-streaked bedsheets.


The star's costume was truly out of this world when she turned herself into a gory alien.


The supermodel transformed into everyone's favorite green princess, Fiona, from Shrek. An idea she'd been dreaming about for awhile, "I just never found a crazy enough person that wants to do Shrek with me," she told People. Enter: husband Tom Kaulitz


The America's Got Talent judge had a hair-raising good time dressed up as the werewolf from Michael Jackson's "Thriller" music video. "I wanted to do the 'Thriller' dance," she explained


Instead of channeling someone else for the spooky season, the fashion expert opted to clone herself five times with the help of prosthetics and some fabulous wigs. 


Heidi who? The former Project Runway host answered only to Jessica Rabbit.


"They said, 'Are you really in there Mama?'" she told E! News about her children's reaction to her incredible metamorphosis into a butterfly.


When describing her kids' responses to this elderly get-up, the star told E! News, "The one time that I [looked] like me but older, they were scared."


Heidi gave Elizabeth Taylor a run for her money with this chic Cleopatra costume.


Klum's seen here with ex-husband Seal at a time when they were presumably quite a bit more bananas about one another.


The former Victoria's Secret Angel looked like she hopped right out of an anatomy textbook. She hosted two parties that year, debuting this look on Oct. 29 in Las Vegas.


The model is tall, but not that tall. Heidi wore stilts to make this robot monstrosity more menacing.


Little known fact about crows: a group of them is called a murder. Perhaps that's why the model chose the bird for her haunting costume. Distressed to discover the step-and-repeat was black, "Now I work on the background, too," she told People. "Since then, I do the step-and-repeat, the carpet, everything."


Heidi's costume as the Hindu goddess of death and time, Kali, has since divided the internet.


Heidi's ferocious feline doesn't hold a creepy candle to the CGI in Cats.


She's the apple of our eye in this costume, which was inspired by the biblical tale of Eve and the forbidden fruit.


Eat your heart out—literally!


Not all witches wear black, you know? In fact, this witch had a lacy costume that included a fake skeleton that she got a medical supply store. 


Gladiator goddess or sci-fi dream? Either way, this vivacious look goes down as one of her best.


The former Victoria's Secret model was red hot, as she channeled the iconic Betty Boop.


In her second year hosting, the star went full Lady Godiva—horse and all!


While the model's looks have become a lot more elaborate, for her very first party she was just Heidi (as in the character from Johanna Spyri’s German novels), choosing to dress up in a dirndl "but not a tradtional dirndl," she told People. "And in those days I still did my hair and makeup by myself."
