Halloween costumes of the rich and famous reached new heights last year, with the Kardashians taking the crown for the best and highest number of outfits in one year. If you’re heading to a Halloween party this year, get costume inspiration from your favourite celebrity from 2017.
Kim Kardashian West and Jonathan Cheban as Sonny and Cher
Kim and her best friend channeled power duo Sonny and Cher with exquisite accuracy last Halloween. Kim’s Indian-inspired outfit is a fun costume for those confident in bearing their stomachs after crunching Halloween candy.
Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima as Bonnie and Clyde
Kourtney Kardashian and her boyfriend impressed last year as Bonnie and Clyde. This outfit is easy to recreate with your own clothes, and is a great last-minute couple’s costume provided the guy owns a suit.
Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson as Daenerys and Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones has been a huge hit so it’s no wonder a costume-loving Kardashian channeled the famous characters last Halloween. Daenerys wears plenty of fun outfits you can rent, and Khal Drogo is an exceptionally fun costume for any guy keen to show off the work they’ve been doing in the gym.
Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel and their son as Toy Story characters
Disney movies are full of Halloween inspiration, and the Timberlake family went all out with head-to-toe Toy Story costumes last year. If you have the budget, head-to-toe Disney can be found in great costume stores, but reserve them early as they’re often the first to go.
Fergie and son as Tinkerbell and Peter Pan
Fergie and her son channeled the perfect magical duo: Everyone’s favourite green fairy and Peter Pan.
Kourtney Kardashian as Michael Jackson
Kourtney Kardashian impressed last year with the most accurate lookalike costume, dressing up as Michael Jackson, complete with gel-heavy curls falling perfectly in her face. If you manage to find a sequin jacket, tight pants and a metal belt, follow Kourtney and finish the outfit with the perfect hairdo for the ultimate Jackson.
Channing Tatum as a unicorn
Channing Tatum showed us onesie Halloween costumes are still acceptable when he took a selfie dressed in a onesie as a purple unicorn last year. If you don’t have time to plan an outfit, get your onesie out. You’ll be the most comfortable person at the party.
Sarah Michelle Gellar with pixie hair and makeup
While her outfit was simply denim cutoffs and a sweater, Sarah Michelle Gellar proved intricate hair and makeup can be enough to create a great Halloween look. Youtube is the best way to learn simple yet effective hair and makeup looks to steal the show this Halloween.
Joe Keery as Harry Potter
The first Harry Potter book was written in 1995, yet the Hogwart’s school uniform is still one of the most popular Halloween costumes around. If you recently graduated university and have an academic gown lying around, it’s the perfect time to channel Harry or Hermione this Halloween.
Nicole Scherzinger as Cleopatra
Glitter, gold and glitz; Cleopatra is one of the most timelessly glamorous Halloween costumes available. If you want more coverage than this Pussycat Doll’s version, try a gold sarong and a chest plate for maximum impact.
Shanina Shaik as an alien
An easy yet very effective costume, Aussie supermodel Shanina Shaik looked out of this world in a skintight silver bodysuit. Add some strange coloured lipstick and you can call yourself an alien, easy!
Whether you want to spend days preparing a head-to-toe costume, or you want an easy outfit this Halloween, try one of these celebrity looks to steal the show.
