The sad news of Heidi Klum and Seal’s separation quickly made headlines across the internet this weekend, shocking fans and industry-types alike. Once regarded as one of Hollywood’s more stable couples, the duo—who annually renewed their vows upon each of their anniversaries—indeed seemed solid as a rock. Who could forget their smitten turns on award show red carpets or their lucky-in-love endless string of pregnancies that appeared to last for years?
Trove of beautiful children aside, the couple’s greatest legacy is the Halloween costumes they’d wear at each of Klum’s yearly fancy-dress bashes. As if stateside festivities weren’t enough, the two even ventured to Europe for Carnival in 2005—providing them an extra platform for their campaign of magic and make-believe. Though it was Klum’s oft corporate-sponsored Halloween fêtes that stole the costuming cake, from medusas to chimpanzees, the supermodel made sure that she and her hubby were never outdone. In an ode to the couple’s love of dress-up, here’s a chronological recap of their best looks.
