Halloween is around the corner and there’s usually one place most of us turn to for inspiration, Hollywood. The amazing transformations, the shocking outfits, the humorous get-ups, it’s all there and it’s a sight to see.
Here’s a list of some of the most iconic celebrity costumes of all time.
1. The Hallow-Queen
No one does Halloween better than Heidi Klum, and this disguise was probably one of her most iconic.
2. The funny punny couple
Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams as “Taco Belle”. Love a good pun on Halloween and these two are especially cute.
3. Pouty perfection.
Heidi Klum as Jessica Rabbit was such an iconic costume. Not only did she spend hours getting into the look, she pulled it off to perfection!
4. Barbie Bey
Beyonce as Barbie was such a sight for sore eyes. To top it off, she looked absolutely gorgeous.
5. Go as a snack
Katy Perry as a Cheeto isn’t something I’ll forget anytime soon. I mean, how creative is this costume?
6. The Troll family
It was awesome to see Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel with their daughter as Branch, Poppy and Lil’ Branch from the Trolls. Especially since Justin is also the voice of Branch!
7. The 90s are back
Jessica Alba and Kelly Sawyer as Romy and Michele just brought back the 90s while making this an awesome costume for besties.
8. A yum bun in the oven
This iconic costume by Liv Tyler back when she was pregnant with her son is such an iconic costume for any mom-to-be!
9. I’m a star

10. Such a treat.
The cute couple, Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, as Avocado Toast was such a fun twist on costumes.
11. Oh no Anna!
Kristen Bell as Elsa was hilarious just because she’s actually the voice of Anna in the film. The things we do for our kids, right?

Eric Stonestreet as Meghan Markle is everything. I love him in any role, but this costume was a clear winner.
13. You’ve got good jeans
Meredith Vieira, Savannah Guthrie, and Jenna Bush Hager as Mom Jeans was such a tongue-in-cheek costume. The Today’s hosts really nailed the look.
14. Double trouble
Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka as the Olsen twins is a look I won’t forget anytime soon.

Heidi Klum as Fiona from Shrek was the stuff of hours of makeup and so much creativity.
17. Rita who?
Rita Ora transformed into Post Malone and almost impossible to recognize! Now that’s a great look.
18. Absolutely heavenly
Michael Kors was amazing as The Garden of Eden. Who would’ve thought this would have made such an epic costume?

No one does Halloween better than the celebs right? From the transformational makeup to the tongue-in-cheek, Hollywood knows how to up the game, every single year. So with just a few days left for Halloween, do you think this year will be as interesting? I’m thinking there will be tons of quarantine looks, so let’s see what Tinseltown serves up on the 31st.
