The Greatest Celebrity Halloween Costumes Of All Time
Halloween is an exciting time for most of us, but even more so for Hollywood celebrities. Why you ask?
The holiday is a real chance for them to get away from playing scripted characters and show their unique personalities! And of course, glamming it up at ritzy parties in creative camouflage is a very satisfying way to hide from the paparazzi.
What is that Katy Perry has on?!
Looking through the photos, you may be inspired to create a costume of your own based on these crazy outfits.
With Halloween just around the corner, most of you will know what you'll wear. But, if you're like us and leave things to the last minute, these celebrity costumes will inspire you to dress up (or down)! Check out the most amazing celebrity Halloween costumes to see who did it best.
Let's take a peek, shall we?
Kylie Jenner as Marilyn Monroe
"MARILYN MONROE ?" captioned Kylie Jenner with this all-out costume posted to her Instagram page.
From a new spread for V Magazine, Jenner transformed into Marilyn Monroe, recreating the late star's iconic "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" video.
Adele as "The Mask"
Now this one is downright spooky! We all remember Jim Carrey's version of this supernatural camouflaged character, but someone else has blatantly copied him. Who is the man behind the mask this time?
Why it's Grammy award-winning singer Adele! Who would have guessed? It's not clear if she kept her famous voice disguised. One moment of that soprano magic would have given her away to everyone!
Kim Kardashian & Her kids as The Flintstones
According to Kim, "This family pic was such a challenge because Chicago was so scared of Dino! LOL We tried to explain and show her that it was just daddy but she didn’t get the concept yet! So shout out to the photographer for editing her in & making our family Flintstones dreams come true!"
Just one question, where's Kanye? Is Kanye really in the Dino the dinosaur costume?
Heidi Klum as Herself + Clones
Supermodel Heidi Klum is usually dressed up as someone else when we see her on camera, but she had a reverse idea for the holiday that openly celebrates creepiness. Heidi arrived as herself. And an army of clones arrived as Heidi!
We're guessing no one complained that there was an army of models sauntering around the party, but it must have been confusing if guests did not see them arrive together at the beginning!
The Beckham Family as Billie Eilish and Gang
Victoria Beckham posted this photo of David and kids Romeo, Harper, and Brooklyn on her Instagram page with the caption: "When mummy brings @cruzbeckham home for school look what happens! ??????? kisses x".
Honestly, they look like a 90s boy band in this. Was Posh playing manager? According to Victoria, Harper was Billie Eilish.
Alessandra Ambrosio as Jessica Rabbit
Alessandra darling, we never knew you could be this sultry — and that's saying something for a Victoria's Secret Angel from South America!
Only Jessica Rabbit could take things to the next level, and she got all the details right with this costume. Readers may have been torn before about whether they were more attracted to a cartoon woman or a real-life model. But this Halloween, we don't have to choose! Thank you, Alessandra.
Kendall Jenner as Forest Fairy
Kendall Jenner took a little inspiration from her experience as Victoria's Secret Angel and dressed up as this exotic-looking "forest fairy".
The model went with an elaborate metallic ensemble and looked every bit the goddess we know and love.
Camila Mendes & Lili Reinhart as Napoleon Dynamite
Stars of the CW series "Riverdale" showed their appreciation for the cult-classic 2004 comedy film Napoleon Dynamite by dressing up as the film's two most iconic characters.
Mendes went as "Pedro", while Reinhart went as the titular character, Napoleon Dynamite himself. Mendes caption the Instagram photo, "vote for me, and all your wildest dreams will come true." A write-in ballot is still legal in this country, right?
Nicki Minaj as Harley Quinn
Nicki Minaj posted this rather cryptic image with the caption: "Behind the scenes w/The JOKER...coming soon ??? - Happy HalloQueen ?"
We don't know about you but have you ever seen a more sad-looking Joker?
Martha Stewart as Zombie Nurse
We all know Martha from her pleasant demonstrations on cooking and home improvement. She is almost the definition of vanilla in the public mind most of the time, but Halloween is no normal day. And this is no normal Martha Stewart!
Red eyes, Martha? And the blood! We had no idea this side was waiting to come out under the full moon, but we like it. The businesswoman looked anything but “living” for Halloween 2016. The icon of healthy living certainly shocked us with this bloody nurse costume.
Khloe Kardashian as Storm
Khloe is the Kardashian we all watched in a weight and glam transformation over the past decade. She has wowed us time and time again with her changing look, and Halloween is no disappointment!
Here, Khloe poses as the mysterious Storm from X-Men. The color contacts are a nice touch! Super creepy, Khloe.
Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Blue Ivy as Barbie, Ken, and Daughter
Behold, the king and queen of hip-hop teamed up for joint costumes on Halloween. They often do! But this time, they have a special guest joining in on the aesthetic.
Little Blue Ivy is probably a big Barbie fan at this age if we had to bet. Seeing mom and dad as Ken and Barbie must have been quite a treat!
Halle Berry as a Skeleton
Actress Halle Berry has always been Hollywood thin, but no one would describe her as skeletal. Not until now, that is!
Halle, this is positively spooky! It is impossible to tell who is hiding behind the bones, which might be a refreshing break from the tabloid life for this famous face. Happy Halloween, Halle. You have tickled our funny bone, and we welcome it anytime!
Gisele Bündchen and Son as Mario and Luigi
Gisele is one of those single-word names we all know from the modeling world, and she has certainly worn some memorable costumes over the years during our favorite televised Victoria's Secret lingerie shows. For Halloween, however, she teamed up with a special little partner!
Mario and Luigi are classic characters that cross-generational lines at this point. But who wore it better, mother or son?
Emily Ratajkowski as Cleopatra
Emily gets her good looks from her Polish-American parents, but she decided to draw on the eyeliner for a more exotic Mediterranean look for this costume. Be honest, did she pull it off?
Noticeably missing is the snake. Emily, we all know the story! Apparently, the heartbroken Cleopatra is not present at this Halloween event. Party like it's 30 BC, people!
Naya Rivera as Carmen Sandiego
We believe that only Naya could bring back Sandiego and make it look good. Why isn't the Carmen Sandiego character on the big screen with millions of dollars in production?
The computer game-turned TV show made sexy cool. But it seems she has gone out of fashion, for a bit. Attention Hollywood! Enough sequels, we need a Carmen live-action project.
Harry Styles as Elton John
Harry Styles certainly upped his Halloween game in 2018 and went as another British superstar - Elton John! The glasses, the glittery outfit, and the jewelry - he was absolutely spot on!
Sir Elton John certainly appreciated it. After all, they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! He even gave the former One Direction member a shutout on his Instagram with the caption: ‘Now that’s what I call a Halloween costume’. Nice work, Harry.
Rita Ora as Post Malone
It seems the celeb theme of the year was to dress up as other celebs, and Rita Ora took the cake for the most dedication! She brilliantly dressed up as Post Malone and we were shook.
From the fashionable denim vest to the flannel shirt, to the face tattoos, and the lit ciggie clasped in her ringed hands. We thought this was Mr. Malone himself at first glance!
She captioned the shot on her Instagram: ‘Ima get Halloween started for you the right way... postttyyyyyy I LOVE YOU BRO @postmalone...ratatatatataata wassssss gooood!! And this is also a BIG thank you for getting me to 14 million!’ as a tribute to their first co-project.
Rita, we need to witness you rap. A picture is worth a thousand words, but we can't hear anything!
Hasley As Poison Ivy
It seems Hasley didn’t let her latest G-Easy break up (AGAIN) lower her Halloween spirits and went full out in this breath-taking costume.
The singer-songwriter decided to unleash her villainous side and totally transformed into the comic book character Poison Ivy. We are not sure what's going on with G-Easy, but we have a feeling he will remember why he fell for her when he sees this situation!
Ross Butler & Noah Centineo as Gaston & Wolverine
These two are the new-aged heartbreaks of the year. Butler is best known for his role in 13 Reasons Why and Riverdale and Centineo has every girl wrapped around his fingers since appearing in the Netflix film To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.
The two combined worlds of superheroes and fairy tales when they dressed up as X-Men’s Wolverine and Beauty and the Beast’s Gaston and we LOVE it. Keep entertaining us, boys.
Jenna Dewan as Real Unicorn
Jenna Dewan is clearly not letting her husband Channing Tatum’s blooming relationship with Jessie J get any of her splits down. She rocked a more light-hearted look transforming herself into a magical unicorn.
"One of my favorite Halloween costumes ever!" she wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of her dressed as a sparkly unicorn. Pure magic, Jenna!
Zoe Kravitz as Vampire
Zoe Krawitz the style goddess put a lot of effort and logic into her brilliant Halloween costume. Her 2018 look was a vampire who just awoke from her slumber.
She nailed it from head to toe with her gown and her morning mug! How can she be adorable and kind of freaky at the same time? No easy feat!
Seth Green & Carey Grant as Luke Skywalker & Rey
Husband and wife actors Seth Green and Clare Grant sought the force as they dressed up as Luke Skywalker and Rey, respectively, from the Star Wars film The Last Jedi.
Green captioned the Instagram photo: "Just two Jedi alone in the universe with daddy issues. @claregrant spent the night asking everyone ‘are you my mommy?’ while I rolled my eyes and hard-chugged blue milk."
Emma Watson as Wonder Woman
Actress and outspoken feminist Emma Watson didn't surprise many when she went as Wonder Woman for Halloween recently.
It's hard to say if the eyebrow work were part of the costume or not, but it certainly adds some spark to the look. But the real question is, why is this it-girl dating Yoda?
Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark & Elephant
Joe Jonas took his devotion for Sophie Turner to the next level on Saturday when he attended Kate Hudson's Halloween bash all dressed up as his fiancée's Game of Thrones character, Sansa Stark.
Sophie kept things casual and cute dressed an elephant for the Hollywood party. Glam Dumbo, perhaps?
Justin Timberlake & Family as Batman Characters
Singer Justin Timberlake, his actress wife Jessica Biel and son dressed up as LEGO versions of Robin, Harley Quinn, and Batman, respectively. And we're loving the results!
Timberlake captioned the Instagram photo, "They got candy? LEGO!" Always in good humor, the family seems to really be enjoying the holiday.
Sarah Michelle Gellar as Harley Quinn
It seems the DC Comics character was a popular choice in 2018 as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" alum, Sarah Michelle Gellar, went as the Joker's accomplice and lover, Harley Quinn.
The actress captioned the photo, "...I'm coming for you...". Is that a threat Sarah? If so, we aren't complaining!
Black-ish Cast as Black Panther Characters
Stars of ABC sitcom "Black-ish", actors Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Marcus Scribner teamed up together to dress up T'Challa/Black Panther, Nakia, and Killmonger respectively for a Halloween episode of "Black-ish".
We must admit, these costumes are pretty impressive! Tracee pulls this off particularly well, actually. No surprise there, she always had a talent for edgy fashion looks!
Stephen Merchant as Doctor Strange
English actor Tweeted a photo of himself as the Marvel superhero Doctor Strange with the cheeky caption, "Giving Cumberbatch a run for his money. Happy Halloween".
Benedict Cumberbatch, of course, plays the titular character in the Marvel films, and it appears Merchant is hot on his heels should he ever decide to part from his cape (or his beard).
Jensen Ackles as Red Hood
"Supernatural" star Jensen Ackles went all out for Halloween when he dressed up as the DC Comics antihero Red Hood. A little bit different than the adorable Disney fox, right?
The actor captioned the Instagram photo, "Bringin the #redhood back for Halloween. Feels good...real good. Hope y’all have a wicked day, today. Remember...eat ALL the candy!" Jensen, we could never forget about the candy.
Kim Kardashian as Wonder Woman
Ok, so it was several years before Gal Gadot turned into the real Wonder Woman, but still, it's a thought we could all play with - Kim Kardashian as Wonder Woman... I mean, she has some experience of being on camera, now doesn't she...
But, all jokes aside, Kim Kardashian has actually donned many impressive outfits over the last decade of Halloween fun, but this one is timeless. We have to be honest, though. Gal made this character so much more than a costume!
Kylie Jenner as Christina Aguilera the "Dirrty" Video
A blast from the past was achieved here when Kylie Jenner posted her recent Halloween costume online. We all remember this music video, and Kylie's got the original outfit down to a T!
Christina might be happy to learn how long-lasting this performance was in the public mind. While thousands of pop hits have come and gone in the last 20 years, this look is still instantly recognizable!
Aubrey O'Day as Cruella DeVille
This might not be the Cruella we all remember from the cute and cuddly 101 Dalmatians story, but we're not complaining.
Cruella was a villain, without a doubt. But if we ran into this version of the evil fur queen, maybe the little pups wouldn't be so important to us. Aubrey, you are quite a distraction here!
Dwayne Johnson as Popeye
In 2015, The Rock rocked a Popeye costume. A timeless character, though many of us may have forgotten about him for a bit! No matter, Dwayne is bringing him back for a new generation on Insta.
We don’t know if he likes spinach, but he didn’t need fake muscles to pull off the cartoon strong man!
Beyoncé, Jay-Z, & Blue Ivy as Coming To America
Beyoncé, Jay-Z and their daughter Blue Ivy decided to go back to their roots by dressing up as characters from the 1998 film Coming to America starring Eddie Murphy.
In the movie, Murphy plays crown prince Akeem Joffer, from the fictional African nation of Zamunda, who comes to the United States in the hopes of finding a woman he can marry.
Kelly Ripa as Kim Kardashian
Kelly Ripa has been the co-host of the syndicated morning talk show, Live! with Kelly and Ryan, in various formats since 2001.
For the show's 2015 Halloween Special, the former star of daytime soap opera All My Children decided to dress up like Kim Kardashian in her famous "break the internet" Paper Magazine Cover photo, only this one was fully clothed for the family-friendly show.
Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool
Anyone who follows Ryan Reynolds on social media can tell you the actor is arguably the world's biggest Deadpool fan. Perhaps it comes easy when he's the one portraying the anti-hero on the big screen. The two appear to be one as they both tend to joke constantly. Unable to contain his excitement, the actor dressed up as the "Merc with a Mouth" and posed with some kids.
Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson as Christie Brinkley & Clark Griswold
Husband and wife duo, Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson posted this photo on Simpson's Instagram account for Halloween 2015. The two dressed up as the Girl in Red Ferrari (played by Christie Brinkley) and Clark W. Griswold (played by Chevy Chase) from the 1983 road comedy film National Lampoon's Vacation.
This moment, with Christie Brinkley and Clark Griswold, is comedic gold. Jessica seems to share a sense of humor with her man, and we've heard that might be the magic formula for lasting love!
Keke Palmer as Aaliyah
Lauren Keyana "Keke" Palmer decided to homage to one of her idols for Halloween 2015 by dressing up as the late-singer Aaliyah with the held of the Scream Queens wardrobe department.
This particular outfit resembles how the singer appears in her "Try Again" music video. We were all so sad when that plane crashed, and it seems Keke found a very nice way to honor the performer. They do look alike, don't they?
Neil Patrick Harris & Family as Star Wars
For Halloween 2015, Neil Patrick Harris teamed up his husband as well as his family for this epic Stars Wars inspired photo.
Harris is dressed as Obi-Wan Kenobi, while his husband, David Burtka, is Han Solo. Their twins, Harper and Gideon (born via surrogacy), complete the look like Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker, respectively. May the force be with you!
Kevin Hart & Eniko Parrish as Martin & Gina
In the 90s, sitcom Martin starring Martin Lawrence was one of the Fox network's highest-rated shows.
So for Halloween 2015, Kevin Hart and his then-fiancée (now wife) Eniko Parrish decided to dress like the show's main characters, Martin and Gina (played by Eniko Tisha Campbell). A comedian dressing up as a comedian is a little bit confusing, to the untrained eye. But Kevin is famous enough now to avoid any real mix-ups!
Justin Bieber as Jackie Moon
Justin Bieber is a fan of Will Ferrell. For Halloween 2015, the singer dressed up as a fictional Jackie Moon (played by Ferrell) from the 2008 comedy film Semi-Pro.
In the film, Moon is owner/player/coach of the failing Flint Tropics, famous for the aging disco hit "Love Me Sexy". Now that's a baller.
Tyra Banks as Richard Branson
Supermodel Tyra Banks decided to unlock her entrepreneurial spirit and with the help of a team of makeup artists, by dressing up as renown British business magnate Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, for Halloween 2015.
The world-famous beauty seems to be comfortable toning it down for laughs, and even donning a beard! The real question is, did Richard Branson actually see this? We wouldn't put it past the mischievous Tyra to show up at a party where he was hanging out on Halloween like this!
Dirk Nowitzki as Lurch
They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky, but mostly just very tall. Measuring 7-feet tall (2.13m), NBA star Dirk Nowitzki is considered one of the greatest power forwards of all time. The one-time NBA champion put his frame to good use by dressing up as Lurch the manservant of The Addams Family. Lurch is a 6 ft 9 in (2.05 m) tall, shambling, gloomy butler and we have to say Nowitzki played this one to a tee.
His family played along as Morticia and Wednesday Addams from The Addams Family. Pretty crazy stuff and they did it well! If he managed to keep that vacant look in his eyes all night, most people would probably figure his character out. But did he, after a few drinks?
Colton Haynes as Ursula The Sea Witch
Colton Haynes of The Arrow fame dressed like the 1989's animated film, The Little Mermaid's, chief villain for Halloween 2015. The actor achieved the look thanks to some professional silicone rubber makeup.
Perhaps many forget about this villain plotting underwater, but we think Ursala needs more recognition in the evil Disney hall of fame. She stole Ariel's voice, you guys! That twisted, bitter octopus woman that haunts us made a superb costume for Colton. A for effort!
Ed Sheeran as Austin Powers
Ed Sheeran was Thinking out Loud when he dressed as Austin Powers, international man of mystery backstage at his show in 2014. The singer's natural red hair added to the authenticity of his look and all that's left to say is "yeah, baby, yeah!"
Ed always seemed less crazy and extroverted than the character, so maybe it was fun to play Austin for the night! In the morning, we know he got back to business writing the love songs of our lives.
Padma Lakshmi & Susan Sarandon as Dead Couple
BFFs Padma Lakshmi and Susan Sarandon teamed to sport matching Day of the Dead bride and groom costumes while attending a New York City church.
The two are often spotted attending events together and for Halloween 2013 the two decided to pay homage to this Mexican holiday. Honestly, this almost seems couture! We would not be surprised to see a little inspiration on the runway after this photo goes public. Nice, ladies.
Heidi Klum & Seal as Monkeys
Former husband and wife Seal and Heidi Klum sported matching ape outfits for Klum's annual Halloween party in 2011. The creepy outfits are just one of several Klum has worn to her annual bash.
The couple divorced in 2012 but remain good friends according to reports. Frankly, these costumes look itchy. And how breathable can that polyester fur really be? Heidi and Seal really suffer for their art here. Count us impressed!
Josh Duhamel & Fergie as Riff Raff & Elvira
The former husband and wife couple, actor Josh Duhamel and singer Fergie dressed up as Riff Raff (from The Rocky Horror Picture Show) and Elvira (from Elvira: Mistress of the Dark), respectively, in 2013 while attending Kate Hudson's Halloween party.
We must say though, these costumes are absolutely spot on from head to toe! While many people try to be funny on Halloween, creepy really is the name of the game. Hats off to these two, keeping it classic.
Guy Ritchie & His Son as Breaking Bad
Filmmaker and director, Guy Ritchie, took inspiration from one of his favorite television shows, Breaking Bad, and teamed up with his son to dress up as Walter White/Heisenberg (played by Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (played by Aaron Paul), respectively.
The meth-lab inspired outfits were a hit just like the television show when they attended the 2014 UNICEF UK Halloween Ball at London's One Mayfair. The yellow jumpsuits do look like a comfy way to spend an evening. And given the popularity of the show, these costumes couldn't have been more timely.
Everyone hopes there was no real meth involved at the party, though! Hugs not drugs, friends.
Iggy Azalea as Cruella De Vil
Australian rapper Iggy Azalea took her stage name from her childhood dog Iggy as well as the street she grew up on, Azalea Street, where her family lives to this day.
So for VEVO's 2013 Halloween party, she decided to go back to her roots and dressed up as Cruella De Vil from the 101 Dalmatians films and brought along her own Dalmatian dog for good measure. Can you say, "Fancy"?
Zach Braff as Kurt Russell
After working with Kate Hudson on Wish I Was Here, actor and director Zach Braff found himself invited to her Halloween party that same year.
The former Scrubs star chose to dress up as Hudson's unofficial step-father, actor Kurt Russell, and the two ended up meeting together to take this epic photo. Braff was going for Russell's look from his 1986 film Big Trouble in Little China.
A moment to remember for a lifetime, guys! We wouldn't be able to imagine the amusement for Kurt running into his doppelganger, so luckily we can see it on his face in the photo. Hilarious, for sure!
Sandra Bullock & Melissa McCarthy as Fishermen
Having acted together in the film The Heat, actresses Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, decided to team up once again for Halloween 2013 and went undercover as two fishermen for the holiday as they took their children trick-or-treating.
While these actresses are normally pretty feminine, this is a new an interesting look. We all need to experience a beard least once a year, right? While it doesn't look like it's actually raining, they are already prepared for anything. Practical, ladies.
Beyoncé Knowles as Storm
For Ciara's Holloween/Birthday bash in 2015, Queen Bey decided to channel her inner superheroine and dressed up as Storm from the X-Men series of comics and films. Halley Berry has some serious competition.
Khloe Kardashian was a pretty smoky Storm, but Bey does give her a run for her money here. The color contacts are freaking us out, but we know her baby browns will be back in no time. Or so we hope!
Harrison Ford as '80s Rocker
Veteran actor Harrison Ford rocked up in this glam rockstar outfit while trick-or-treating with his wife in 2011. The outfit looks like a cross between Alice Cooper and Bon Jovi. If ever Ford decides to play a rockstar onscreen, we'll be the first to book our tickets.
Harrison has been one to pose in flamboyant style over the decades, so it must be nice to get away with it when he can! This time, his wife probably thinks it's just a costume. But is it, Harrison?
Emma Roberts as Pretty Woman
Up-and-coming actress Emma Roberts took a cue from her aunt, Julia Roberts, and dressed up as her character, Vivian Ward, from the 1990 romantic comedy film Pretty Woman for Halloween 2012.
In the film, Roberts plays an assertive freelance hooker with a heart of gold who is hired by a rich corporate raider to play his girlfriend.
The movie is timeless, and the costume is definitely recognizable today. But wait — can you believe it's been almost 30 years since it came out in theaters? Why, how time flies!
Kathie Lee Gifford & Hoda Kotb as Wayne's World
For Halloween 2014, Today hostesses Kathie Lee and Hoda did things a little differently and conducted an entire interview segment as Wayne Campbell (played by Mike Myers) and Garth Algar (Dana Carvey) from the 1982 film Wayne's World who are a pair of rock fans who host a television show.
While not totally disguised, they did get halfway there. Now all that is needed is a seal of approval from Mike and Dana! Hopefully, they were as amused as we were.
Adam Levine & Behati Prinsloo as Tommy Lee & Heather Locklear
Singer Adam Levine of Maroon 5 paired with his wife, Victoria's Secret Angel, Behati Prinsloo, to go for an 80s look for Halloween 2014. The duo dressed up as 80s couple rocker Tommy Lee and actress Heather Locklear.
And we're not protesting! These two look great as themselves, but they blend in just as well as portraying music icons of the past. Someone gets a review from Heather and Tommy, pronto!
Jessica Alba as Dora The Explorer
For Heidi Klum's famous annual Halloween party at the Voyeur nightclub in 2009, the former Dark Angel star looked like a real-life version of Dora the Explorer. Careful Jessica or else Swiper will come looking for you. Has anyone seen Boots?
While Jessica is normally effortlessly glam, this is a new look we also enjoy. Simple and innocent probably stood out at the party, and we all know that's the real goal on Halloween!
Adam Lambert as Funky Werewolf
We have one word for rocker Adam Lambert's 2014 hairy Halloween costume at Bootsy Bellows, and that is "fabulous".
Never have we seen someone dress up as a werewolf and still look so enticing. Rawr! Hopefully, it wasn't a full moon that night.
Christina Ricci as Mime
Actress Christina Ricci, known for her choice of unconventional roles in movies, notably portraying characters with a dark edge, dressed up as a mime along with her boyfriend for Halloween 2009.
The real question is, did the couple really pantomime all their communication at the loud parties on Halloween? If not, it's just painted! It does look good on Christina, in all honesty. Attention, Hollywood casting: Mime material, right here.
Amber Rose as Dead Prom Queen
So much creepiness exists here in Amber Rose’s zombie prom queen costume posted on Halloween 2014 via Instagram. We kind of love it, but kind of hate it. You might say we are torn, though not as much as were during final Prom voting.
The model and actress has attempted finding her niche with ventures into music, cosmetics, and books. The style icon really freaked us out on Halloween, but that's really the goal. Enough of these sexy bunny costumes! Amber is setting exactly the right tone, though we cannot deny it makes us a little queasy.
Jamie Lee Curtis as Cheerleader
Back in 2010, actress Jamie Lee Curtis dressed up as a cheerleader for the Children Affected By AIDS Foundation's 17th Annual Dream Halloween party held at Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, CA.
Here she is carried by Beetlejuice, Count Dracula, and Frankenstein. Jamie is a real-life mom, and we are not surprised she decided to devote Halloween to child welfare causes. We love you, JLC!
Matt Lauer as a Baywatch Babe
News anchor Matt Lauer takes Halloween seriously, and in 2013 he dressed up as a Baywatch beach babe for the Today show Halloween episode. On the segment, he even did a slow-motion run for the cameras.
We seem to remember those girls being a bit better looking. Has time clouded our memories, or is Matt falling short of the standard here? Seeking answers, help!
Jason Priestley as Canadian Mountie
Former Beverly Hills, 90210, star Jason Priestly paid homage to his Canadian roots by dressing up as a Canadian Mountie, with his wife and daughter helping the actor complete a North-American look at the 2008 Dream Halloween bash which was held at the Barker Hangar in Los Angeles.
How adorable is the Priestley family? If you said it's not quantifiable, you would be on track. We're pretty sure Canada has never been so good-looking! Are they paid ambassadors yet? We think not, but it remains a standing suggestion. Cough, Canada.
Fergie as Miss Universe Meets Princess
Former Black Eyed Peas singer and rapper, Stacy Ann Ferguson, better known by her stage name "Fergie" decided to combine the glamor of beauty pageants with many a little girl's dreams of being a princess in pink for Heidi Klum's 2011 Halloween Party.
Fergie channeled her inner toddler from the TV series Toddlers and Tiaras. While we will probably never be invited, we can at least admire the costume photos that come out of it online.
Michelle Trachtenberg as Black Dahlia
For Halloween 2014, actress Michelle Trachtenberg dressed up as the late actress Elizabeth Short, better known by the name the Black Dahlia.
Short was found murdered in 1947 and the case later became highly publicized due to the crime's graphic nature. It is one of the most famous unsolved murders in American history. A sad reality that DNA testing has not yet fixed. Michelle does creep us out, however. Great work, Michelle!
Channing Tatum as Winnie the Pooh
Channing Tatum surprised us all with his outfit for his daughter's 2015 Halloween carnival. The actor went for a low-key Winnie the Pooh look with this street-friendly outfit.
We wonder how many people were able to recognize the actor under the belove character's hood. This is most certainly not the Winnie the Pooh his daughter’s friends are used to! Channing, it's not hard to wash a costume from year to year.
Nick Jonas as Hamburglar
Singer Nick Jonas, showed off his hidden bad boy at the Maxim Halloween Party in Los Angeles when he dressed as McDonald's famous Hamburglar. It looks like the burglar was able to get one of the prized burgers based on the evidence of this photo.
Rumor has it that the fast-food chain has actually phased out the character, and that makes us sad. Thank you for bringing him to life again, Nick!
Kellan Lutz as Snake Plissken
Former Twilight alum, Kellan Lutz, decided to dress up as one of his action idols, Kurt Russell, for the 2014 Treats Magazine Halloween party held in New York City. That ratty wig was even more exciting than the eye patch to most ladies, we assume.
The star took inspiration from Russell's character Snake Plissken from the films Escape from New York and Escape from Los Angeles. Camouflage, gloves, the whole she-bang. We can only give Kellan credit for making a real effort to portray a character. All you basic cat costume girls, take note of how it's done!
Rihanna as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
We don’t remember Raphael being quite so sexy! But are we really protesting this character evolution? At New York City's Opus nightclub's 2014 Halloween party, singer Rihanna drew inspiration from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as she dressed up as the bad boy (or should we say turtle) of the group, Raphael complete with twin sai.
Though she has her own cosmetics line with an impressive range of shades for every ethnicity, we know she doesn't produce makeup foundation in this green yet. Riri, care to explain?
Katy Perry as Flamin' Hot Cheeto
Katy Perry added a little spice to Kate Hudson's annual Halloween bash in Los Angeles in 2014 when she dressed up as a flamin' hot Cheeto. Was, it tasty and sweet or spicy? Now dating actor Orlando Bloom, all we can tell the lucky man is bon appétit! I kissed a girl and it was tasty.
It's safe to say she didn't suffer at the party when multiple people showed up with the same costume as her. In fact, it may have never happened in history! Yum, Katy.
Ben McKenzie as Jim Gordon
Formerly of The O.C., actor Ben McKenzie made life imitate art as he dressed up as an older version of his Gotham character, Captain James Gordon, when he rocked up to Heidi Klum's 2014 Halloween party.
He looks a little bit more raggedy in the DIY version, but it probably got all the chuckles he was looking for with his friends. Maybe he wasn't feeling creative this time? Ben, we need a bit more from you next year. Please, Ben!
Seal as Giant Metal Man
Back when he was married to Heidi Klum, singer Seal decided to power-up and went as a giant metal man as he was covered from head to toe in metallic silver paint at Klum's 2010 Halloween party.
In fact Seal actually donned this costume to play off of his then-wife's giant robot costume. Did Heidi help paint this shine on? It looks like a challenging solo project! These two always did it so well!
Nicole Richie as Danny Devito in Twins
Television personality, Nicole Richie, throwback to this forgotten gem of an 80s movie by dressing up as the shorter "twin" from the 1988 film Twins for Halloween 2013.
In the movie, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito play unlikely twins who were separated at birth. Richie may have hired an Arnold body double for this.
Paris Hilton as Miley Cyrus
Before there was Kim Kardashian, there was Paris Hilton, and the socialite didn't disappoint in 2013 when she turned up to the Playboy mansion's Halloween party dressed as Miley Cyrus, perhaps the next heir to the socialite's former throne.
At the time Miley was just transitioning from kids TV to an adult identity, but Paris seemed to admire her from the beginning! Did Miley think this was funny? We suspect yes, given her world-famous sense of humor. Well done, Paris!
Gwen Stefani & Tony Kanal as Zombie Danny & Sandy
Bandmates and former item, Gwen Stefani and Tony Kanal, put a twist on things by dressing up as zombified versions of Grease's Danny Zuko (played by John Travolta) and Sandra Olsson (played by Olivia Newton-John) for British chat host, Jonathan Ross's 2012 Halloween party.
Gwen may be the queen of quirky fashion year-round, but this was still memorable. It’s not entirely clear if this is a nod to the notion that Danny and Sandra Dee were both dead during Grease, or simply zombie versions of the teens.
Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey as Cookies 'n' Cream
Back when Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey were a married couple, they decided to throw a Halloween party New York City’s Marquee Nightclub to coincide with their six-month anniversary. It's not clear if Cannon's outfit was about his one-time better-half. Ahem.
Cookies and milk are great, but was this costume an omen of the relationship that would sour in 2017? In hindsight, everything is 20-20.
Brad Goreski as Beyoncé
Fashion Police host Brad Goreski is known for his dapper way of dressing and often incorporates bow ties and bright suits into his casual wear. For Halloween 2014, the television personality took it up a notch and went full Beyoncé.
We do wonder how he drank holiday punch all night, though. That half mask covers his mouth, obstructing witches brew and candy corn alike. Some casually claim you must suffer for fashion, but Brad lives his art out loud.
Lance Bass as Lance Bass
Lance Bass showed everybody that when you're a celebrity you finding a costume is as easy as saying "it's gonna be me". And the former NSYNC star did just that in 2014 when he went as himself. #TBT indeed.
We've actually missed you, buddy! We know boybands have become a relic of the '90s, but you're always welcome in our lives. Happy Halloween, Lance Bass!
Kylie Jenner & Tyga as Chuckie & His Bride
Back in 2014, rapper Tyga and television personality Kylie Jenner were an item as documented in the tabloids, the relationship appeared to be anything but a fairytale. So for Halloween of that year, the two went as notorious serial killer doll Chucky and his bride from the movies of the same name.
In 2014, Tyga and Kylie stepped out on the town as the stars of The Bride of Chuckie.
Scott Disick as Patrick Bateman
In 2012, Scott Disick was still Kourtney Kardashian's beau and as such he was clearly on the wild side as he dressed up like Christian Bale's character, serial killer Patrick Bateman from the film American Pyscho for his party at 1 Oak Nightclub in Las Vegas.
Rita Ora & Kate Moss as Barbie & Cara Delevingne
Singer Rita Ora and supermodel Kate Moss sported these glamorous and glamorless outfits, respectively at a London Halloween party in 2014. Ora went as Barbie, complete with a stuffed pooch and tiara, while Moss went as model and actress Cara Delevingne complete with, umm, hoodie and shades. You decide who pulled their respective looks better.
Deryck Whibley & Wife as Avril Lavigne & Chad Kroeger
Musicians Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger were a couple back in 2012 and for Halloween of that year, Summ 41 lead singer, Deryck Whibley and his wife decided to dress as the famous couple. However, they put a twist on as they each dressed as the oppositely gendered personas. Now that's rock 'n' roll!
Sacha Baron Cohen & Isla Fisher as ???
Actor and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen and wife actress Isla Fisher turned up to a 2013 Halloween party dressed like something out of this world. To this day we still don't know exactly what their costumes were supposed to be. Any guesses?
Larry David as Conjoined Twin
Comedian, writer and actor, Larry David wasn't afraid to be strong-armed for a whole evening when he went as one-half of conjoined twins along with his friend at the Casamigos Halloween Party in Beverly Hills in 2013.
Christian Siriano & Brad Walsh as Picasso Art
Fashion designer Siriano and his (now ex-)husband arrived at Heidi Klum's famous Halloween bash in modern interpretations of Picasso paintings pieces. Can you say abstract?
Diane Guerrero as Tina Belcher
Diane Guerrero from The Orange Is the New Black was a dead-ringer for Tina Ruth Belcher from the animated sitcom Bob's Burgers. As for Tina’s low, monotone voice, we can’t see Diane taking it that far.
Karlie Kloss as Marilyn Monroe
Victoria’s Secret Model Karlie Kloss rocked up to a costume bash benefitting amfAR looking glamorous as Marilyn Monroe. Let's just hope she avoided the underground air.
Cindy Crawford & Family as '70s Icons
Cindy Crawford got her family members Rande, Kaia, and Presley Gerber to help her out to complete this 70s look. Check out Cindy's head of hair! Majestic! Arguably the most photogenic family around.
Kim Kardashian West & Jonathan Cheban as Sonny & Cher
Kimmy K got her friend Jonathan Cheban to help her pull off her 70s look imitating Sonny and Cher. Has there ever been a more iconic musical duo? That mustache looks glorious!
Serena Williams as Jazzercise Instructor
Tennis sensation, Serena Williams kept things physical by dressing up as a Jazzercise Instructor. Not only did she throw on a wig, but she also stayed committed to bright pink leggings. Only Williams can make the 80s look modern.
Jessica Williams & Danielle Brooks as Characters From 'B*A*P*S'
Singer Jessica Williams and actress Danielle Brooks got together to sport this look from the 1997 comedy film B*A*P*S. Certainly, "Livin' large and takin' charge!" We have to stand up and applaud the headpieces and the bright jumpsuits.
Chanel Iman As Mummy
Supermodel Chanel Iman slew it with this runway take of a mummy costume. Somewhere between terrifying and chic, Iman combined scary with sexy rather well.
Tyga as The Mask
Tyga makes another appearance on our list. The rapper threw back to Jim Carrey’s 90s character The Mask, complete with yellow suit and green “mask”. Somebody, stop me!
Jasmine Sanders & Terrence J as Wilma & Fred Flintstone
Actors Terrence J and Jasmine Sanders dressed in matching outfits when they went from the modern stone-age family from Bedrock, The Flintstones. "Flintstones, meet the Flintstones." Can you say Yabadabadoo?!
Lily Collins as Supergirl
Actress Lily Collins attended Ciara's 30th Birthday party which doubled as a Super-hero themed Halloween party as Supergirl in 2015. Here she is attempting to fly away. We know you're an actress Lilly but that costume's going to need some work to convince us.
Mandy Moore & Friends as TLC
Many Moore recruited her friends to complete this 90s look in 2011, as the three got together to recreate American girl group TLC which consisted of Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas. These outfits are inspired by the group's video for their hit song "Waterfalls".
Heidi Klum as Jessica Rabbit
Which Victoria's Secret Angel wore it better? Klum vs. Ambrosio is quite the contest!
Heidi Klum is one of those celebs who take Halloween very seriously and as such you can be sure she always brings her A-game for the occasion. When it comes to creativity, the former Project Runway judge seems to out-do herself every year.
For her 16th Halloween party, thrown at NYC’s LAVO club in 2015, Heidi pulled out the punches and endured hours of special effects and makeup to portray the Who Framed Roger Rabbit pin-up girl to make the guys drool. “I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way.”
Matt Lauer as Pat
For the 2014 Halloween episode of the Today show, news anchor Matt Lauer dressed up as the Saturday Night Live androgynous character Pat whose gender is never revealed. The character also featured in a big-screen adaptation in the 1994 film It's Pat.
Was it Patrick or Patricia? Goodness, it seems we may really never find out. The suspense has been killing us for several decades now, and we're not sure we can deal with it anymore. Make up your mind Pat!
Olivia Munn as Goh Peik Lin
Actress Olivia Munn decided to pay homage to her Asian roots by dressing up as a character from this year's romantic-comedy hit film, "Crazy Rich Asians" when she showed off her Goh Peik Lin costume.
In the film, the character is played by rapper Awkwafina. But who wore it better? We report, you decide!
Sean Combs as King Diddy
Sean John Combs, known by his various stage names Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Puffy, Diddy, Brother Love and B. Love, took it up a notch a lived up to his self-described style as "swagger, timeless, diverse" and went as what appears to be a king for Dolce and Gabbana's Halloween party in 2014.
Harrison Ford & Calista Flockhart as Geeks
Husband and wife couple, Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart put aside their A-list status in 2012 when they dressed up as geeks at a party, bringing with them some party wine to complete the look while trick-or-treating in Brentwood.
What’s better than a pair of trick or treating nerds? Trick or treating nerds sipping on wine while out and about. We love these two, and we actually want them to wear this style more often! Why restrict the ultra preppy look to Halloween? Any day will do.
Carson Daly & Erik Estrada as CHiPs
For the 2013 Halloween episode of the Today show, television personality Carson Daly recruited actor Erik Estrada to reprise his role as California Highway Patrol officer Francis Llewelyn "Frank" Poncherello from the police drama television series CHiPs.
The segment perhaps inspired the 2017 movie based on the series. While they lack the classic motorcycles, they still did a great job bringing this hit back to life. Will we see them try out more duos in the future?
Cardi B as Cruella De Vil
Cruella De Vil takes a second appearance on this list with another female rapper. This time Cardi B rocking up as the villainous, bringing along a pooch to complete the look. Woof woof just got a whole new meaning.
Alessandra Ambrosio as Unicorn
Alessandra Ambrosio, just like many Victoria’s Secret Angels could be described as a unicorn due to being unattainable to the average fella. So when the supermodel dressed up as a unicorn for Halloween perhaps it was a case of art imitating life rather than the other way around?
Tinashe as Snoop Dogg
Singer Tinashe went old school and dressed up as Snoop Doggy Dogg as he was known back in the 90s. We quite dig her dedication to the facial hair and bling. The nails though don't quite work with the gangster image.
Joe Jonas as Blades of Glory
Singer Joe Jonas seems to be a fan of Blades of Glory as he dressed up as Chazz Michael Michaels played by Will Ferrel in the 2007 comedy film. The question is can he perform an Iron Lotus maneuver?
Jennifer Lopez & Casper Smart As Skeletons
During their on-again, off-again romance from 2011 to 2016 Jennifer Lopez and actor Casper Smart attended a Halloween party dressed as skeletons. Jenny from the block just became Skelly from the chop. Gulp.
Gigi Hadid as Grease
Supermodel Gigi Hadid probably wishes she could go as Sandy from Grease most of the year. That's how much this look suits her. The supermodel doesn't look at all like she's wearing a costume. It just looks like another outfit in her wardrobe.
Naomi Campbell as Aztec goddess
Supermodel Naomi Campbell has been known as quite the diva over the years, particularly renown for throwing things at her former employees. So it seems apt the Brit would go as a goddess for Halloween. You can't be over the top when you're Naomi. Just look at that headpiece!
Dylan Sprouse as Fabio
Actor Dylan Sprouse from The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and its spin-off, The Suite Life on Deck throwback to a time before he was born when he went as former model Fabio Lanzoni who was pictured in several romance novels in the 1980s and 1990s. This particular look is a little joke from the time Fabio got hit in the face by a bird at Busch Gardens. I can't believe it's not better.
Chrissy Teigen & John Legend as Cleopatra & Mark Anthony
Supermodel Chrissy Teigen and musician John Legend look like royalty personified. For Halloween 2010, the couple went for an Egyptian Queen and a Roman general Mark Anthony. One of history’s most famous romances. The originals inspired a play, will the modern version perhaps inspire a song?
Jimmy Kimmel as Thor
Jimmy Kimmel hosts one of the most popular late-night talk shows but for Halloween 2009 he added a super twist and went as the god of thunder himself. Blond hair, Viking helmet, pumped muscles – all that’s missing is the hammer. Lay the smackdown Jimmy!
Skylar Astin & Anna Camp as Wayne’s World
Married couple actor and singer, Skylar Astin and actress and singer Anna Camp, were another duo who are fans of the 90s hit film, Wayne’s World, dressing up as Wayne and Garth respectively.
Seth Rogan & Lauren Miller as Mario & Luigi
Comedian and actor Seth Rogan and his actress wife Lauren Miller went for a video-game inspired look and went as Super Mario and Luigi to the 2016 benefit gala “Hilarity for Charity” which they hosted together.
Cindy Crawford & Family as 80s Punk Rockers
The Crawford family makes another appearance on our list as they seem to have a knack for teaming up together for their Halloween looks. Their 80s punk rock-inspired outfits almost singlehandedly won the family Halloween 2016. Who knew punk rock could look so chic?
Bette Midler as Hocus Pocus
Bette Singer and actress Bette Midler paid homage to one of the most iconic roles when she dressed up as Winifred Sanderson, the main antagonist of the 1993 film “Hocus Pocus” in which she stars. Interestingly perhaps, her 2016 costume may have been what got tongues wagging for a sequel for the hit movie.
Hoda Kotb & Al Roker as Blake Skelton & Willie Nelson
Today hosts Hoda Kotb and Al Roker sported complimenting outfits for the Today Halloween special when they went as musicians Blake Shelton and Willie Nelson respectively. That beard looks as real as those locks. Pitch perfect.
Seth MacFarlane as Oscar the Grouch
Comedian Seth MacFarlane went for a simple self-deprecating character when he rocked up as Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street. The creator of Family Guy is known for his dry sense of humor and given the hilarity of on-screen creations, is anything but a grouch.
Kim Kardashian West as Wonder Woman
If wondering how someone got famous is equivalent to being called “wonder” then Kim Kardashian West certainly fits the bill as Wonder Woman. The television personality wore this form fitted outfit for her 2008 Halloween bash.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Tasha McCauley as Bloody Country Singers
The country songs can sound melodramatic, and it would appear this husband and wife took things to the next level when they went for bloody country singer looks. This could be a good prequel/sequel to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Everything is bigger in Texas, right?!
La La Anthony as Zombie Bride
Television personality La La Anthony looked more Ga-Ga than la-la when she went as a bride of the walking dead. Weirdly enough, she still looked stunning even as a zombie bride than some do on their actual wedding day. If looks could kill.
Trevor Noah as Prince Akeem
Another celebrity inspired by Eddie Murphy’s 1988 film Coming to America. Comedian and host of “The Daily Show” went for a full-African getup when he went as the film’s titular character, Prince Akeem from the fictional Zamunda. Word is still out on whether he was successful in finding a bride like a movie’s character.
Michelle Trachtenberg as Secret Garden
Actress Michelle Trachtenberg makes another appearance on our list, this time as a secret garden when she wore this outfit for Halloween 2016. The headpiece alone looks like it would’ve taken hours, let alone the face makeup.
LeAnn Rimes & Eddie Cibrian as Madonna & George Michael
Singer LeAnn Rimes and husband and actor Eddie Cibrian went as pop icons Madonna and George Michael respectively for Halloween 2016. The 1980s inspired look is a decent effort even if no one could pull-off the Madge and Yog look.
Victoria Justice as Beetlejuice
If she’s justice, then lock us up! Actress and singer Victoria Justice dressed up as 1988s “Beetlejuice” (played by actor Michael Keaton). Interestingly, Justice was born in 1993, five years after the film came out, so it begs the question, why hasn’t there been a sequel, yet?
Nina Dobrev as Ryan Lochte
The former star of “The Vampire Diaries”, actress Nina Dobrev recruited the help of her friend Lane Cheek who went as disgraced Olympic swimmers Ryan Lochte and Jimmy Feigen, respectively. We’re not sure how these outfits went down at Matthew Morrison’s annual Halloween/birthday party but it certainly got tongues wagging.
Demi Lovato as Trap Queen
For those unaware, “Trap Queen” is a loyal, street-smart, and resourceful woman who knows how to handle any situation. So for Halloween 2015, singer and stress Demi Lovato dressed up as a trap queen complete with a robe, tiara, sash, and scepter.
Mario Lopez as Cowboy
Television host and actor Mario Lopez unlocked his inner cowboy when he celebrated Halloween with this epic cowboy and horse outfit. The question is was he going for more of a Woody from “Toy Story” look or a Clint Eastwood in “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” look?
Ryan Phillippe as Star Wars
Actor Ryan Phillippe cleverly went as Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi from the Star Wars films in 2016 which also doubled as a way to avoid the glare of the paparazzi. The outfit perfectly combines form with function and all we can say is the force is strong in this one.
Keke Palmer as Selena Quintanilla
Actress Keke Palmer sure does like her tragic pop-stars. Previously we saw he dress up as the late singer Aaliyah, and on Halloween 2016 she went as Queen of Tejano music, Selena Quintanilla whose likewise was tragically cut short. The late singer would certainly approve of this gesture.
Heidi Klum as Thriller
Model and television personality as we’ve already seen takes Halloween very seriously, going so far as to throw a renown annual party for the rich and famous. So staying true to style, the model went as this authentic werewolf from Michael Jackson’s timeless Thriller music video.
Danny Masterson & Wilmer Valderrama as CHiPs
Take 2 for the CHiPs outfit, the former “That 70s Show” co-stars, got together to wear matching Ponch and Jon outfits from the famous television show of the 70s and 80s. Considering the reboot with different actors wasn’t nearly as successful, might we suggest these two for a second attempt?
Marlee Matlin & Son as Mary Poppins & Chimney Sweep
