No one seems to do Halloween costumes like Hollywood celebrities. While that may be due to their makeup artists and abundant flow of funds, they have still managed to not only steal the spotlight but also give fans some inspiration. Although some stars put on a onesie and call it a costume, there are certain stars who wrap themselves in Wonder Women’s cape and go all the way to the 1978 wonder Grease to make sure the flag of top-notch costumes remains high. This is why fans turn to them for inspiration.

What better way to channel your favorite celebrities than by using their previous year’s Halloween looks? While some of them may be last season, here are 10 iconic celebrity costumes that could cause anyone’s jaws to drop and never go out of style.

Florence Pugh embodied Emma Stone’s Cruella De Vil

Florence Pugh has had the whole world watching her since she stepped on the scene back in 2014. While the 27-year-old had her hands full with her acting career, she still gave her fans another iconic look last Halloween. With her red lips and half-and-half hair, the actress stunned the world after she posted her take on Cruella De Vil, the 101 Dalmatians villain.

This was the second time in the annum that Pugh had everyone floored with her dress. Between her alleged revenge dress at the Don’t Worry Darling premiere to embodying the misfit villain who, despite her horrid affair with fur, still remains an icon, the actress ruled the year in fashion.

While she has ample acting projects in the vault, everyone seems to be waiting to see how the star will outdo herself this Halloween.

Nicki Minaj transformed into a classic Disney princess

While Nicki Minaj did not have to be home by the time the clock struck 12, she definitely had a fairy godmother to help with her 2022 Halloween costume. The rapper also added her own twist to her ball gown, with a little glimpse at her curves. As if being the Tinsel Town Barbie was not enough, the singer has earned herself another title.

Although the star embodied a high-fashion Cinderella, she stole the show with her post’s caption. She had referred to herself as “Chunderella,” which was a play on her hit song, ‘Chun-Li’. While the 40-year-old left no crumbs, last year’s outfit has only piqued everyone’s interest to see what she will do next.

Lil Nas X made his Ice Spice dreams come true

Lil Nas X is known for his brightly colored and out-of-this-world looks. Despite his usual love for outrageous outfits that send the public into a frenzy, the 24-year-old decided to go another way. Instead of his neon, bedazzled outfits, last Halloween, the ‘Panini’ rapper transformed himself into the Eras Tour performer, Ice Spice.

He drew inspiration from her music video for ‘Munch’ and even posed in a convenience store for the complete effect. He also added to the transformation by giving fans one of the ‘Deli’ rapper’s signature poses. Given that the rapper always goes out of his way when it comes to fashion, fans cannot wait to see what Lil Nas X has in store for them this year.

Kim Kardashian mutated into an X-Men character

Although no one can pull it off like Rebecca Romijn, Kim Kardashian came pretty close with her interpretation of Mystique from X-Men. While the SKIMs mogul has never been one to shy away from a full latex outfit, last year she shocked her social media following in a blue latex bodysuit. However, she went all in for her shape-shifter costume and even dyed her hair red, like the former model.

While it is no surprise that Kim Kardashian loves dressing up, the star has constantly been outdoing herself with her Halloween costumes as well as red carpet looks. Her last year’s outfit, however, was more an ode to her dear friend Jennifer Lawrence than anybody else. Given that she seems to have played Tango with other elite celebrities, fans are excited to see what she is going to be this year. Although something tells us it is not going to be Cardi B.

Rebel Wilson was Barbie before Margot Robbie

While Rebel Wilson is usually in the spotlight for her out-of-the-box ideas, last year she decided that the box would be a part of her costume. In complete Barbie fashion, the 43-year-old pulled up to a Beverly Hills party with her entourage of Barbies along with a singular Ken. She also took to her Instagram to show off her pink outfit and her doll box.

Even though she was not the only Barbie of the night, the Pitch Perfect star stole the show with her social media caption. Wilson wrote, “Come on Barbies let’s go party! Happy Halloween,” which sent her followers into a frenzy. Hopefully, the star can go above and beyond for this year’s costume as well.

Harry Styles channeled his inner John Travolta

Any Harry Styles fan knows that the singer absolutely adores the spooky season. It has never mattered whether he was touring or not, he always ensured to celebrate Halloween. As he was on tour last year, fans got to see him take the stage dressed as Danny Zuko from the 1978 film, Grease and pop culture came around full circle.

Although he was dressed up as John Travolta’s character from the film, his entire outfit was in honor of celebrating, Olivia Newton-John, who had also starred in the film. In fact, he even began his concert with a huge hit number from the film, ‘You’re the One That I Want’.

With the former One Direction singer’s evident love for Halloween, fans can only hope that they will be blessed with another iconic costume this year too.

Kris Jenner’s a tried and tested Wonder Woman

While the Kardashian-Jenner clan is known for their iconic wardrobes, it is evident where they have got their sense of style from. The family momager, Kris Jenner, stunned the internet last year when she brought back her 2012 Wonder Woman costume for another night on the town. However, this time, she did not have to worry about another outfit malfunction.

Though she was not the only Kar-Jenner member to dress up as the DC superhero, she is the only one who ended up having a PR crisis on her hands after the dress revealed a little more than it was supposed to. Apart from the 67-year-old, Kim Kardashian also donned the red-white and blue suit for Halloween 2012.

Paris Hilton is a Marvel superhero

From dressing as a Playboy Bunny to even Minnie Mouse, Paris Hilton has constantly given her fans the best party-girl version of Halloween costumes that anyone could imagine. However, in 2022, she decided to lay down her fabulous outfits to embody an MCU superhero. She, along with her husband, Carter Reum, transformed into Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel and Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool.

She posted a series of pictures to her Instagram with the caption, “Higher, further, faster, baby.” Although no one had expected to see the star turn into one of the Avengers members. Unlike her younger days, the heiress opted for a night in with her husband and turned it into a full-blown photoshoot.

Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian had everyone screaming “it’s alive”

The world may never get enough of Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian’s Halloween costumes. From their Tim Burton transformation two years ago to their ingenious outfits for last year, the couple are definitely the ones to watch for those who need inspiration. In 2022, the oldest Kardashian sister took to her Instagram to share pictures of herself made up to look like the Bride of Frankenstein. While her horror-inspired look was gorgeous by itself, the Blink 182 drummer added to the look by transforming into Frankenstein’s monster.

After sharing a cute video online, the couple spooked their followers with the realness of their looks. They captioned their dancing video with, “I always feel like somebody’s watching me.” With earth-shattering Halloween costumes every year, fans can not wait to see what innovative Halloween costumes Kourtney Kardashian and Travis come up with this year.

Meghan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly paid tribute to a classic video game

While Meghan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly seemed to run through their Halloween costumes last year, not all of them were hits with the public. After their sultry look as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, the couple decided to go with a different costume for the spooky evening. They decided to cosplay the main characters, Zelda and Link, from Nintendo’s ‘The Legend of Zelda’, and they even did a pretty good job at it.

The Transformers actress took to her Instagram to share pictures of her and then-fiance, Kelly looking like realistic elfs complete with their little pointed ears. Although it might not have lived up to the standard of regular cosplayers, the couple’s outfit definitely distracted everyone from their earlier costume fail.
