Everyone has their favorite holiday, and I am here to argue that your opinion is practically invalid if that holiday is not Halloween. Who doesn’t like snuggling up on their couch to watch horror movies or partying into the late hours of the night dressed up as their favorite superhero? However, if there is one part of Halloween that I am sure everyone appreciates, it’s the celebrity costumes that we mere mortals love to judge, even if we are sitting on our couch in pajamas.

So, without further ado, in no particular order, here are some of the best-dressed celebrities of Halloween 2021.

1. Doja Cat as Miss Bellum

Dressed up as Miss Bellum from the Powerpuff Girls, Doja Cat seems to have stolen the show this Halloween with many on Twitter claiming that she has obliterated all competition. I particularly loved the attention to detail as she incorporated the mayor into her costume.

2. Camila Mendes & Madelaine Petsch as Velma & Daphne

These Riverdale stars managed to perfectly nail their look as Daphne and Velma from Scooby-Doo. It’s an iconic costume that has certainly been overdone throughout the years, but considering how good these two looked we can definitely let the cliché slide.

3. The Weekend as Don Vito Corleone

Here is one celebrity that always seems to get Halloween right and he certainly did not disappoint this year. Dressed up as Don Vito Corleone from The Godfather, The Weekend was almost unrecognizable, which goes to show just how good his costume really was. I wonder if he made anyone an offer they couldn’t refuse.

4. Katy Perry & Orlando Bloom as a Vaccine Syringe & a Doctor

The couple seems to have decided that Halloween was the perfect time to spread some vaccine awareness, a cause we can certainly get behind. Not to mention that they even managed to put some humor in there as fans noticed that Orlando Bloom’s name tag reads “Dr DILF”. Supportive of the vaccine and funny? What more could we want?

5. Ariana Grande as Miss Creature

The artist tapped into the horror and spooky side of Halloween as she drew inspiration from the classic horror film “Creature from the Black Lagoon”. Not only did she manage to surprise her fans with an elaborate costume but also recreated the movie posters with her own twist.

6. Harry Styles as Dorothy

If there is one celebrity who can make every outfit they wear reach iconic status, it is Harry Styles. Often credited with dismissing traditionally masculine fashion for dressing up in his own unique way, his Halloween costume was likely to be up that same alley and he certainly did not disappoint. The artist appeared on stage for his concert dressed up as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz and as usual, managed to break the internet.

7. Hailey Bieber as Britney Spears

There is nothing I love quite as much as celebrities paying homage to each other, and if there is one person who got it just right this Halloween it was Hailey Bieber. The model blessed us with not one,  but four different Britney Spears costumes, each look a reminder of some of the most iconic outfits in pop culture.

8. Lizzo as Baby Yoda

Who doesn’t love Baby Yoda? Of course, when Lizzo dressed up as Baby Yoda there was no way the look wasn’t making this list. You just cannot overlook it when two icons come together like this.

9. Jennie Kim as Medusa

When this Blackpink singer is not stealing hearts with her voice, she is known for her refined taste in fashion. Her Halloween look has certainly kept that reputation intact as she went for a Medusa that reminds me more of high fashion than a murderous gorgon. With an elegant headpiece and blood-stained nails, Jennie certainly stole the hearts of her fans once again.

10. Cardi B as Morticia Adams

If there is one costume you are likely to see at every Halloween party, it’s someone from the Adam’s Family, and most likely Wednesday or Morticia Adams. However, I have never seen a Morticia who looked as good as Cardi B this year, so of course, she made the list. Everything from the makeup to the outfit is perfect to say the least.

Which celebrity Halloween costume do you like the most? I can’t decide!
