In the realm of fashion and Hollywood glamor, Halloween always brings a spectacular display of creativity and style. With another season of spooktacular festivities, the world’s biggest stars have once again showcased their costume prowess. While the world has already seen everything the stars could throw at them, this year’s costumes have a lot of people confused over who could be crowned the king or queen of the costume party.

From Heidi Klum’s annual breathtaking transformations to Kendall Jenner’s fashion-forward flair, the competition for the title of the best Halloween costume seems to get a little bit fiercer with every passing year. This year, many fan favorites have already dazzled the social media world, and here are the top picks.

While celebrities are usually the ones who end up giving their fans inspiration for their costumes, sometimes they seem to take from each other as well. This year, some celebrities debuted their costumes at the annual Casamigos Halloween party over the weekend. However, other stars chose to show off their elaborate costumes on their social media pages. Either way, fans got the best of both worlds as they hopped online on the big day.

Heidi Klum kept up her tradition of an extremely elaborate costume

Over the years, model Heidi Klum has become known as the Queen of Halloween. For over two decades, she has been serving up ever-outlandish costumes that leave her hard to recognize. From Micheal Jackson’s werewolf from the ‘Thriller’ music video to last year’s creepy crawly worm, the 50-year-old has constantly outdone herself each year to earn the name. However, this year’s costume might be her most elaborate yet.

While that may have been her first nod to 2000s pop culture, it was only the beginning of her costumes for the night.
