Heidi Klum is the queen of Halloween, with elaborate costumes ranging from characters like Betty Boop and Cleopatra to an artistically painted-on view of the human muscular system, not to mention a full-on monkey. But this year, she opted to look into the future for her costume and went as herself . . . aged about 50 years! See her newest costume and get some serious Halloween inspiration for next year with a look back at Heidi's epic take on Halloween.
Klum worked with makeup artists Bill Corso and Mike Marino, as well as Andy Clement from Creative Character Engineering, to make and apply a series of prosthetics that made her look more than twice her age. The team even gave her varicose veins on her legs and age spots along her hands and arms. We also got a sense of how the supermodel will be dressing when she hits 100: a conservative houndstooth skirt suit, pearls, low heels, and a cane completed the look.
Of course, that's not Klum's only crazy costume: she's been everything from a purple and red robot to the forbidden fruit from the Garden of Eden. A look at this year's costume, plus some of her Halloween ensembles from years past, here in the gallery.

While some fans were hoping that Miley Cyrus's long-hair tease earlier this week meant that she may have been dressing up as Hannah Montana for Halloween, it turns out the pop star decided to go for a different (and, naturally, skin-baring) costume. Miley Cyrus debuted her Lil' Kim costume on Twitter last night while celebrating the holiday early with a group of friends. She went for Lil' Kim's infamous 1999 MTV VMAs outfit, which featured a purple wig and an exposed breast that was covered up by a sparkly pasty. It's fitting that Miley would choose to dress up as a star who made headlines with her VMA ensemble as the former Disney star has inspired thousands of Halloween costumes of her own for her VMA performance earlier this year. Interestingly enough, Miley's friend Cheyne Thomas briefly dressed up as VMA Miley for Halloween, although he later changed into a Frankenstein costume to twerk with his pal at their party.
Lil' Kim tweeted her approval of Miley's costume today, writing, "Yasssssss my baby." Miley and Kim have interacted before as the young singer was on hand to film a music video with Kim and rapper Tiffany Foxx for Tiffany's song, "Twisted," earlier this year.
While Miley's Lil' Kim costume may be tame compared to some of her own onstage outfits, she has been having some cheeky NSFW fun this Halloween season. On Tuesday, she tweeted a photo of her raunchy jack-o'-lanterns, which included pictures of different sex acts and a marijuana leaf. Miley aptly named the pumpkins "pornkins."
Celebrities love an opportunity to dress up, and Halloween is the perfect chance to show off the craziest, scariest, and most imaginative fancy dress costumes. In the USA, Kate Hudson, Matthew Morrison, and Heidi Klum's Halloween bashes offer up a chance to get into costume — from the good, like Miranda Kerr's sexy circus ringleader look, to the downright scary, like Heidi and her cadaver suit. In the UK, Jonathan Ross hosts an annual bash that draws stylish attendees like Kate Moss and Chloë Moretz in their scariest getups.

Heidi Klum's Halloween costumes and parties are the stuff of fashion legend, so it was fitting that last year she planned to dress up as the legendary Cleopatra. And while she hasn't revealed this year's costume inspiration, it won't be an easy feat to top some of the amazing things she's worn in the past.
In 2012, Klum worked with Martin Izquierdo (the man behind some of the wings for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show) to design the bold gold dress, cape, and headpiece she was going to wear to her 13th annual Halloween party — which was cancelled because of Hurricane Sandy. Before that, Klum cooked up costumes ranging from a purple-and-red robot to the forbidden fruit from the Garden of Eden.
