The Best Celebrity Halloween Costumes

Halloween is one of our favourite celebrations of the year. Along with trick or treating, drinking copious amounts of pumpkin-spiced lattes and re-reading Frankenstein, one of the best activities to get into the spooky spirit is revisiting the best celebrity Halloween costumes!

From Heidi Klum’s legendary Halloween prosthetic makeup (remember Shrek and Fiona) to the Kardashians’ ‘out there’ ensembles, we’ve trawled through the internet to find the best-dressed ghouls of recent years:

Lupita Nyong’o Channelling Dionne From Clueless, 2018

Lupita’s look is so Clueless (in the best possible way) and this outfit is giving us serious 90s nostalgia. While we wish we could pull off this look IRL, Lupita takes school girl chic and brings it effortlessly into the present day.

Clueless’ Dionne is undoubtedly one of the most iconic characters to come out of the “chick flick” genre so it’s no wonder Lupita chose to recreate this standout look.

Each part of the outfit is spot-on, from the black knee-high socks to the oversized nose piercing. We’re obsessed.

Heidi Klum as Jessica Rabbit, 2015

All bow down to Heidi Klum, queen of the Halloween costume. Her legendary outfits always attract as much attention as her annual Halloween party and it’s no surprise as she truly does go all out. Every. Single. Year.

This Jessica Rabbit costume from the 1998 film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, is scarily realistic.

Never one to shy away from a little prosthetic makeup, Heidi has literally changed the shape of her face to pull off this seductive number. Bravo.

Alan Carr as Gemma Collins, 2018

Alan Carr nearly singlehandedly broke the internet in 2018 with his Gemma Collins Halloween costume.

Channelling his inner Essex girl, Alan chose to recreate THAT infamous dress. When Gemma wore this ahem, interesting outfit back in 2017, it made headlines for all the wrong reasons.

But this creative and downright hilarious costume pays homage to Gemma in the best possible way and we’re sure The GC gave Alan the go-ahead before debuting this iconic ensemble. Orange really is his colour!

Kylie Jenner as Christina Aguilera, 2016

We have to say, Kylie Jenner won Halloween in 2016 with her Christina Aguilera “Dirty” outfit.

Showcasing the rather raunchy costume to her to humble 141 million Instagram followers, this pic is one of Kylie’s most-liked posts to date. Easy to see why huh!

The nose piercing, faux dreadlocks, and dark makeup are almost too true to the original video, we think Kylie may have a lookalike career ahead of her…

Zoe Kravitz as a sleepy vampire, 2018

Zoe proves that sometimes less is more when it comes to the perfect Halloween costume. This 2018 outfit is a masterclass on how to slay an outfit (pardon the pun) without spending hours on hair and makeup.

We love the subtlety of this outfit, far from the OTT blood-drenched vampire costumes favoured in the 80s (no thanks).

Her little vampire teeth and Gucci sliders are quite the addition and, dare we say, make us want to recreate this look immediately.
