Heidi Klum has cancelled her annual Halloween party, which often has a star-studded guest list. While much effort goes into the costumes for this A-list party, the model decided to defer it for another year. 

"With everything happening in the world right now, I feel like it's still too early for me to feel okay having a party," the 48-year-old explained to TooFab. "So I will not do that this year again. Like last year, I feel like it's insensitive of me to do that. I don't want anyone to get hurt because of we're having fun on my dime so I don't want to do that."

Last year, the America's Got Talent judge replaced the shindig with something just as creative - a horror film starring her husband, Tom Kaulitz, and her four children. 

Shot at home, the short film - called Heidi Does Halloween - showed the family turning into zombie-mummies, made out of toilet paper they stockpiled at the beginning of the pandemic.

Although the event is cancelled this year, the model says she's already working on the next bash. In the meantime, let's have a look at some of the stand out costumes from previous years.
