Heidi Klum has a history of outdoing nearly every celebrity Halloween costume. Not only does she always manage to steal the show at her annual Halloween party, but her getups are so impressive that they often go viral, like last year's hideously disgusting, meme-worthy worm disguise.
After teasing fans via social media all day long, posting only small snippets, the queen of Halloween revealed her 2023 costume: a giant peacock joined by an flock of feathered friends.

Earlier in the day, Klum appeared on Amazon Live with designer Bill Corso, whom she has worked with on her costumes for many years. Each year, Klum develops a concept and then works with Corso and other designers to pull together the over-the-top look.
During the livestreamed preview, Klum only appeared in the unpainted mask portion of her costume, leaving viewers to guess the end result.
Of the many guesses that began floating around the stream's chat, some posited she was an alien, a lizard, a bee, an armadillo, and an "evil mermaid."

To anyone who attempted a guess, Corso said: "Good luck." He added that they were relatively early in the process of Klum's costume. He works on details up until the last moment the Project Runway host steps out for her party.
"I'm very excited to reveal it," Klum said, adding that the pressure to outdo herself every year is "huge." The only tease she offered was that her husband, Tom Kaulitz, had a costume that went with hers — and that he needed some "glitz and glam" before the Halloween night bash.
Here are a few of Klum's all-time great costumes.
