Instead of leaving it until an hour before a fancy dress party kicks off like us mere mortals, the stars go all out on October 31 to create an outfit that’s more impressive and extravagant than last year’s – it’s like a spooky Met Gala.
Of course, with full glam teams just a phone call away, our favourite A-listers have access to fancy dress resources that the rest of us can only dream of – who can forget Heidi Klum’s genuinely unsettling OAP prosthetics or Katy Perry’s uncanny Hillary Clinton ensemble?

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, the iconic husband-wife duo of Game of Thrones and Jonas Brothers fame, never disappoints Halloween. They’ve been Gomez and Morticia Addams, they’ve been Sansa Stark (yes, Joe dressed up as Turner’s GoT character one year) and… an elephant, and then they pulled this out the bag. Jonas, Turner and Olivia DeJonge, the Elvis actress, were paired to portray the characters Lizzie McGuire Movie’s Paolo, Isabella and Lizzie. Sing to me Paolo!
Lizzo as Baby Yoda
Followers of Lizzo’s Instagram would be hard pressed NotIt is no surprise that Truth Hurts singer Baby Yoda is a huge fan. She posted about The Mandalorian, real name Grogu, all through 2021 and finally went full circle, becoming him for Halloween last year. It was kind of… a look?
Harry Styles is Dorothy
Harry Styles, never one to shy away from a skirt moment and dressed up as Dorothy last Halloween when he was on tour. The Halloween tour show was his favorite. “Harryween”We came out in our Wizard of Oz costumes, with rouge cheeks. Yes it’s hot, we can all admit it.
Kim Kardashian and Jonathan Cheban are Sonny and Cher
Kardashian enlisted Cheban as her best friend for 2017 at Casamigos Halloween bash. She used October 31st to pay tribute again to Cher, using October 31st as an opportunity to do so.
Heidi Klum as an old woman…
You’ve got to admire Klum’s level of commitment to the cause. Klum does her best to make her Halloween costume the most talked about. But her 2013 old lady disguise is still a remarkable feat, thanks to her intricate prosthetics and make up, from her wrinkles, to the fake sun damage.
… and with an army of ‘Heidi Clones’
How did Klum manage to do that the following year. A group of like-minded people. ‘Heidi Clones’To pose with on the red-carpet.
Beyonce as Barbie
Beyonce is another celebrity with a strong Halloween game. In recent years, she’s used October 31 as an excuse to dress up as fellow musicians Lil Kim and Toni Braxton, but back in 2016 she channelled the most famous doll in the world – and even recruited Jay-Z to cameo as Ken.
Hillary Clinton as Katy Perry
Perry was fresh from supporting Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign trail. Perry chose to pay homage to Clinton in a different way at Halloween. She donned elaborate facial prosthetics, an extensive grey wig, and bright red pantsuits to cosplay the politician. A friend dressed as Bill, and Orlando Bloom, her now-fiancee, joined her. The latter wore a cartoonish Donald Trump mask.
Gigi Hadid portrays Sandy from Grease
Yes, it’s been done many times before, but it’s a classic. Gigi Hadid (pictured here with Klum as Jessica Rabbit) really committed to her You’re The One That I Want look, from the perm to the are-those-from-American-Apparel-circa-2008 disco pants.
