Best Celebrity Halloween Costumes of All Time


For we, the little people, there are only a couple times a year where we can really get ALL dolled up and pretend to rock the red carpet (the sidewalk) posing for all the paparazzi (our Instagram-loving friends) and rolling in adoration and riches (Instagram Likes and Reese’s peanut butter wrappers).

That’s Halloween, in case you’re like, what day is it? Stars get to feel that way basically all the time and yet still, on this holy holiday they manage to rock it out. Even more than the ush. To give you more (we know you needed it) inspo for your 10/31 getup, here’s a look at some of our favorite celebrity Halloween costumes from years past, and a bunch from this year. Ugh, yes, the stars beat us to that too.

1. Lauren Conrad as a Mermaid: It’s not even officially Halloween yet and LC has already won Halloween with her seashell bustier and sophisticated sequins. It’s not too late to give this a DIY try! You might not have the ocean at your disposal, but we bet you could cheat with a trip to Michaels. (via Lauren Conrad)

2. Iggy Azalea as Cruella De Vil: We won’t ask where the other 100 dalmatians are — this costume is so good we’re almost afraid to. (via DailyMail)

3. Beyoncé as a Bee: We would have told her to crown this look with a, well, crown to achieve the ultimate Queen BEY/BEE look, but maybe that would be a little redundant. (via Fashion Inspo)

4. Ed Sheeran as Chucky: Work with what the good lord gave ya — in this case, ginger tresses. (via @teddysphotos)

5. Lucy Hale as the Twitter Bird: Who knew the PLL star had DIY chops to boot? We do now, see you at our our 2015 Halloween costume makeathon, Lucy Hale. (via @lucyhale)

6. The Boston Bruins as the Cast of Frozen: This will warm even the iciest of hearts this Halloween. The Boston Bruins dressed up as Frozen characters (not that odd, considering ice is certainly their element) to visit the Boston Children’s Hospital this year. <3 We told you. (via Today)

7. Liv Tyler’s Bun in the Oven: You know we love a good pun, we LIVE for a clever spin on a maternity Halloween costume and finally finished The Leftovers (omg so good) so Liv Tyler gets As across the board for her getup this year. (via @misslivalittle)

8. Michelle Trachtenberg’s Last Minute Look: This is last minute?! Teach us your ways, MT! We have a GREAT idea for her this year — how ‘bout Harriet the Spy? No? Okay. (via @michelletrachtenberg)

9. Kelly Osbourne and Ryan Randall as Magenta and Riff Raff: It’s just a jump to the left… (via @KellyOsbourne)

10. Lauren Conrad as a Tooth Fairy: LC gave this pretty costume a couple’s twist by having boo William dress as a dentist. (via Lauren Conrad)

11. Jessica Alba as Dora: This throwback costume for the star is still one of our faves and would make a pretty easy last minute getup. Psst — fun fact alert! That feathered friend is none other than Halloween lova Heidi Klum. (via Modelinia)

12. Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo as November Rain: We’ve seen Guns N Roses themed costumes before (hey, Anj and Dave) but this couple costume kicks the creativity up another notch. (via Harper’s Bazaar)

13. Ellen Degeneres as Nicki Minaj: We wouldn’t mind seeing the reverse of this costume and/or seeing Ellen update the look for 2014. Anaconda-style. (via The Ellen Show)

14. Demi Lovato as a Cat: Wait. Is it just us or is this a nod to Miley?! We can’t remember if they’re friends right now or not… hang tight. We’ll Google it and get back to you. (via @ddlovato)

15. Rashida Jones as a Charms Blow Pop: This is a group costume waiting to happen. Dibs on Sour Apple! (via People)

16. Julie Bowen as Gangnam Style: And we thought *our* group Gangnam Style costume was the best… (via DailyMail)

17. Chris Colfer as Grumpy Cat: There’s really no wrong way to be a cat this Halloween, but we think Chris’ is our favorite so far. (via @hrhchriscolfer)

18. Nick and Vanessa Lachey’s Sugar Skulls: Dia de los cuteness, more like. (via@vanessalachey)

19. Heidi Klum as an Old Lady: You know how people do the thing where they dress sexy for Halloween? The super sexy Heidi Klum was totally transformed into an old woman for her big par-tay last year and, damn she still looks fab. (via Huffington Post)

20. Sandra Bullock + Melissa McCarthy as Fishermen: This is one way for celeb BFFs to go incognito trick-or-treating. Ugh, don’t you just want to have brunch with these two really badly?! (via Just Jared)

21. Kimye as Catwoman and Batman: It doesn’t take much to get Kim K in a catsuit, but we applaud Ye’s commitment to this couples costume. (via DailyMail)

22. Fergie as Honey Boo Boo: This girl definitely drank her Go Go Juice that AM. (via Elle)

23. Gwen Stefani as Jessie from Toy Story: How cute is it to see the ultimate cool girl getting down and dorky for her kiddies? Real freakin’ cute. (via Seventeen)

24. Miley as Lil’ Kim: Dressing up like Miley for Halloween was so last year, but dressing up like Miley dressing up like Lil’ Kim is eternally awesome. (via @mileycyrus)

25. JC Chasez as Hunter S. Thompson: We need to add this to our list of best dude costumes ever immediately. (via PopSugar)

26. NPH, David Burtka + Kiddos as Peter Pan: The superstar and his supersweet family kill it consistently, but this is an old favorite from 2012 that deserves a retweet. We hope those little ones never grow out of the group family costume. (via @actuallyNPH)

27. Martha Stewart and Blake Lively as Medusa and Cleopatra: What if these two go as Gwyneth Paltrow and Goop this year? (Too soon?) (via Just Jared)

28. Kim Kardashian as a Mermaid: Look, we’ve all been there. You want to go all out this Halloween and your +1 is like, eh, I’m good. This is a perfect compromise — well played, Kanye. (via Just Jared)

29. Vanessa Hudgens as Mary: Vanessa hasn’t revealed her 2014 costume just yet but she did kick off October getting super creepy at Knott’s Berry Farm. We can totally relate to a woman who can turn a holiday into a holimonth. Holi-holler! (via Vanessa Hudgens)

30. Demi Lovato as a Zombie: A little gore never hurt anyone even if it did scare the Milk Duds out of a trick-or-treater or two. (via Crushable)

31. Alexa Chung as the Hamburglar: We love Alexa’s cute costume idea — and that vintage McD’s uniform. (via

32. Ashley Tisdale as a Britney Spears Zombie: She’s not that innocent, nor is she that alive. (via @ashleytisdale)

33. Kelly Osbourne + BF as Bacon + Eggs: They may be exes now but Kelly O and Luke Worrall did make a cute breakfast duo one Halloween long ago. We especially love the addition of a little bling to their getup. (via PopSugar)

34. Queen Latifah as Oprah: The best part about dressing up as our future president Oprah Winfrey is that the “You get a Twix and YOU get a Snickers and YOU get a Reese’s!” trick-or-treating line will just, like, never get old?! (via SunTimes)

35. AnnaLynne McCord as Marie Antoinette: Let them eat king size Snickers bars! (via FabSugar)

36. Pearl Osbourne as Yoda: Papa Jack Osbourne gave his little one a free ride for trick or treating last year (we’ll let it slide, she probably couldn’t *actually* walk yet). (via @jackosbourne)

37. Snooki and JWoww as Paris and Nicole: This may not have been their Halloween costume last year but it absolutely should have been. (via Buzzfeed)

38. Jessica Simpson as a Mummy: JSimps always rocks it out, but we loved her pregnancy reveal as a mummy (get it). (via @jessicasimpson)

39. Krysten Ritter as a Zombie: This is taking pretty zombie to new levels of undead awesomeness. (via @therealkrystenritter)

43. Roberto Cavalli as Karl Lagerfeld: How do you think Karl felt about this? We hope he got a chuckle. If he can chuckle. Take a tip from RC and dress as one of your favorite fashion icons for Halloween with our handy (insanely easy) guide. (via MTV)

44. Ashley Madekwe as Choupette Lagerfeld: There might be a couple Karls out there this All Hallow’s Eve, but one with a Choupette accessory is next level. (via WhoWhatWear)

45. Brad Goreski as Tavi Gevinson: You’re nobody until someone dresses up as your for Halloween, we suppose. The Rookie mag EIC should have followed Brad’s lead and dressed as him the following year, dontcha think? (via Styleite)
