  • Heidi Klum Gets Fitted For Her 13th Annual Halloween Party At Finale Sponsored By HobNob Wines, Svedka Vodka And Smartwater

    Perennial Halloween fixture Heidi Klum premiered her 2012 costume this week — and we aren't disappointed. The Cleopatra ensemble will make its debut next Wednesday at Klum's annual party. Check out how it was made here

  • Heidi Klum's 12th Annual Halloween Party

    This was one of our favorite costumes of 2011 — but now it just makes us sad! For their last Halloween as a married couple, Heidi Klum and Seal dressed up as apes.

  • Heidi Klum's 11th Annual Halloween Party

    Okay, this is the last Heidi Klum Halloween costume — we promise. But seriously, no one gets into the holiday as much as she does. Back in 2010, she was an interesting cross between a cyborg and a female Iron Man. We kind of wish we saw her storming the runway in this ensemble.

    Prior to the arrival of Blue Ivy, a very pregnant Beyoncé attended a party at The Darby dressed as a bumble bee last year.

    Alexa Chung was spotted in London donning a Victorian-era gown and white face makeup. Of course, she makes this look totally chic.

  • Heidi Klum's 11th Annual Halloween Party

    Okay, so maybe there's someone else who does get into the Halloween spirit as much as Heidi Klum: Kim Kardashian. Here she is as a sultry Little Red Riding Hood at Klum's party. We guess this was before she was a big enough deal to have her own!

  • Midori Green Halloween Costume Party

    At last year's Midori Halloween party (she's the spokeswoman of the brand), Kim Kardashian donned a fabulous Poison Ivy costume that didn't really differ much from what she used to wear. Of course, now that Kanye West is in her life, he'd probably never let her wear something as average as this. We can't wait to see what he dresses her in this year.

    Frequently referring to herself as Princess Jasmine on the first few seasons of her reality show, Kim Kardashian donned her best Jasmine ensemble back in 2009.

  • Miley-cyrus-nicki-minaj

    This year there's sure to be plenty of people dressing up as Miley Cyrus, but for Halloween 2012, the "Wrecking Ball" singer went as pop star Nicki Minaj.

    Talk about an amazing pair: Blake Lively and Martha Stewart pose together as Cleopatra and Medusa back in 2008. Maybe this is where they hit it off (Stewart was a guest — and planner — at Lively's wedding to Ryan Reynolds this year).

  • NY: MARIAH CAREY & NICK CANNON HALLOWEEN PARTY

    We don't even know where to begin with this one. Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey hosted a Halloween celebration at M2 Ultra Lounge dressed as angels.

  • Heidi Klum's 12th Annual Halloween Party

    Model Chrissy Teigen wore one of our favorite costumes last year. Cleverly dressed as one of the "Toddlers & Tiaras" girls, she did everything to perfection.

    Back in 2007, P!NK attended Heidi Klum's shindig dressed as a clown. It was a perfect take on a played out costume.

  • Audrina Patridge Hosts "I Dream Of Audrina" Party

    She may not pull it off as well as Kim Kardashian, but as far as genie costumes go, Audrina Patridge's was pretty solid.

Getting dressed up is as much a part of the job for Hollywood’s elite as acting in front of the camera, and many of them take that job seriously—sporting all manner of high-fashion outfits and employing high-paid stylists just to make sure they look good on the red carpet.

As such, it’s no surprise that celebrities take their Halloween costume ideas incredibly seriously, often planning their elaborate costumes weeks ahead of time (we’re looking at you, Heidi Klum!). Stars’ costume decisions often mirror their personalities—is it any surprise that Kim Kardashian’s costume every year tends to be a “sexy” version of something?—but in some cases, they reveal a hidden sense of humor or a playful side. If not for her annual Halloween party, you might never guess that Heidi Klum gets seriously into her costume, and doesn’t care about looking good: in 2011, she dressed up like an ape-woman from “Planet of the Apes!”

From Heidi Klum dressed as an eight-foot-tall superhero to Kim Kardashian covered in poison ivy, we’ve rounded up 20 of our favorite celebrity Halloween costumes. Get inspired!
