Here's a list of 10 celebrities who completely nailed the task, and became a staple of the holiday due to their creativity, their crafting abilities and their talent. Take a close look at their creation; in the end, perhaps you can steal some ideas for the upcoming celebration of Halloween this year.
Kim Kardashian – Selena
It was 2017 when Kim Kardashian West decided to pay tribute to the Queen of Tejano music, following the steps of Demi Lovato. Kim slayed donning a purple jumpsuit similar to the one Quintanilla wore at her final concert before her tragic death at the hands of her fan club's president, Yolanda Saldívar, in 1995.
Karlie Kloss – Marilyn Monroe
The Project Runway host decided to recreate a moment of movie icon Marilyn Monroe with this costume. Even though this was not the first time the super model channeled, for this occasion she opted to wear a halter neck white dress, inspired by the actress' 'The Seven Year Itch' costume, while wearing her hair in retro waves and a vibrant red lipstick.
Emily Ratajkowski – Cave Woman
Her iconic Raquel Welch costume instantly became a staple choice among Halloween costumes. The model and influencer dropped jaws with her smouldering costume, which she wore for a Travis Scott Halloween party back in 2018, and it was a direct nod to the classic 1966 Raquel Welch film One Million Years B.C.
Joe Jonas – Zoolander
There isn't probably a better validation mark than being approved by the original avatar that originated your Halloween costume. Case in point, Ben Stiller, when he addressed Joe Jonas and his Zoolander costume for a Halloween party, and said it was right on point. “He [Stiller] was raving about the fact that I was dressed as him. He said I killed it... I made him proud,” Jonas laughed.
Janelle Monae- Headless Bride
On several occasions the american singer has demonstrated that she doesn't play when it comes to Halloween. It was in 2019 when she opted for a very creepy and haunting costume, wandering around in a wedding dress, giving the amazing illusion that her head was clasped between the bride's hands, while her headless body walked around. With this, she proved to be a master of Halloween.
Gigi Hadid – Sandy Olsson
Olivia Newton-John was a great Sandy, but when Gigi Hadid walked the red carpet at Heidi Klum's annual Halloween party, in 2015, she was able to erase from our minds, even for a second, the movie version of Sandy. Her flawless ensemble was put together by Monica Rose, the Kardashians' go-to stylist, and she pulled it off effortlessly. She wore nylon high-waisted spandex from American Apparel, a crop top with a sheer panel from House of CB, and a lace-up leather jacket by Caroline Blomst.
Heidi Klum – Jessica Rabbit
The German-American model manages to outdo herself every year, when it comes to Halloween costumes. In 2015, she was able to recreate one of the most impactful icons in cinema: Jessica Rabbit. The costume was one amazing effort from her team, taking up to 10 hours to put on, but earned her the title of Queen of Halloween.
Rihanna – Raphael (TMNT)
A few years ago, Rihanna decided to channel one of the most iconic characters in television; particularly, a character from the highly popular cartoon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. However, at the time when she was wearing the costume, she had to struggle with the New York City rain. Nevertheless, she looked flawless wearing the rebellious character from TMNT.
Cardi B – Cruella de Vil
For Halloween, there was a time when Cardi embraced her inner Cruella de Vil, wearing a beaded black top and velvet pants, with a gigantic black and white fur coat. The rapper went on to pair the look with elbow-length red gloves and wore a half-white, half-black wig. To complete her Disney villain's look, Cardi brought an adorable Dalmatian that stole the scene that night and made her costume look epic.
Zac Posen – Willy Wonka
From the moment they knew he was dressing up for Halloween, fans and followers had a lot of expectations regarding what Zac's choice for the costume was he making; especially, since he is a designer. Fortunately, that paid off and he was able to steal the show as his version of the 1971's Willy Wonka.
