While you snatched up some wings or cat/wolf/other generic-looking animal ears and called it a day, these celebs pulled out all the stops. If you’re looking for some inspiration for next year’s outfit, here’s a peek at what some of your favorite stars stepped out as during Halloween weekend:
Lauren Conrad as Cruella De Ville
Lauren Conrad perfectly channeled the Disney villain, right down to the red accessories, fur coat, and two-toned hair.
Gigi Hadid as Sandy from Grease
Though this costume was from a few years ago, it’s still a classic. If you’re looking for something easy yet fun for next year’s costume party, this look is a good one. Grab some leather pants and a black top, throw on some red shoes and lipstick, tease your hair, and you’re good to go!
Alessandra Ambrosio as Cher
To be fair, if we had abs like this we would also go as Cher…
Kourtney and Kim Kardashian as Michael Jackson and Madonna
Kourtney and Kim Kardashian threw it back to the 1991 Academy Awards with these on-point costumes.
Paris Hilton as Princess Jasmine
Love her or hate her, Paris Hilton did a pretty spot-on rendition of Princess Jasmine. Unclear on why her boyfriend went on as a gladiator and not Aladdin, but that’s okay. Minor details.
Adele as a clown?
We’re not 100% sure what Adele is supposed to be. A clown, perhaps? Either way, we’re loving her over-the-top eye makeup and shimmery gown.
While it may be too late for this year’s Halloween, store these ideas and you’ll be ready to snag all of the top costume contest prizes when next year rolls around.
