2001: Lady Godiva

While she wore a floor-length blonde wig and a sparkly white bodysuit, it was conservative by Lady Godiva standards. Legend has it that the English noblewoman rode her horse buck naked through town.

The costume was simple yet striking. Most of the work of getting into character as the iconic cartoon was in the hair and makeup.

In 2004, Heidi arrived at her party dressed as a scantily clad witch with scarlet hair. Her makeup was amazing, as usual. She also kindly gave a skeleton a piggyback ride on her way in.

The model had a whole "fly into the party like an actual witch" thing planned, but she ended up getting stuck in her harness, which undid the witch illusion.

2006: Forbidden Fruit

"The problem with that was that I was so big, I couldn't fit into a car, so I had to get a convertible at the last moment just so I could get to the party," she told the New York Post. "I couldn't drink water because my arms didn't reach my face, I couldn't even sit. That wasn't so much fun—I didn't fully think that one through!"

2008: Goddess Kali

Heidi said that her assistant had come up with the idea for this elaborate costume. "My husband and I were in India last year, so she said, 'Why don't you do an Indian goddess? Like a scary Indian goddess?' And I said 'OK!'"

2009: Crow

Heidi and then-husband Seal twinned as two crows. While the costumes made the couple look like monster-size birds, the getups weren't at all practical.

2009: Crow

"It was bad. My husband was driving and he could hardly see anything," Heidi said. "When you have a beak on, you can't talk to anyone, you can't really drink. It's not a good costume." Noted!

Heidi teased her Halloween costume for 2012 — she was planning to go as Cleopatra — but ended up postponing the party out of respect for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, which hit just before Halloween.

When she finally had her party in December, she showed up in an improved version of the costume she had previewed. After a few years of being "ugly," she wanted "something really pretty and sparkly for a change," she told Us Weekly. There were hundreds of crystals on her face that were applied individually.

2013: 95-Year-Old Heidi

"When I was a 95-year-old version of myself, I spent a lot of time getting the details right, down to the varicose veins and the eye lenses to make it look like I had cataracts," Heidi told the New York Post. "No one recognized me, and I almost had to tell everyone to let me into my own party!"
