What better way to get inspired for Halloween than to imitate some of your favorite celebrities? Public figures ranging from legendary runway model Heidi Klum to reality star Kim Kardashian have picked some of the best ideas for the spooky holiday. While some women choose to explore their provocative side on Halloween, others like to err on the side of practical.
Skeleton: La La Anthony dressed as a creepy skeleton at P. Diddy’s Emperor's Ball in 2015. Jennifer Lopez and then-boyfriend Casper Smart dressed were skeletons the same year.
Red devil: Alessandra Ambrosio got in touch with her sinister side at a 2015 1OAK party.
Jessica Rabbit: Klum wowed when she dressed as the vixen from “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” at her annual Halloween bash at Lavo in NYC in 2015.
Chucky and his bride: Kylie Jenner and Tyga went with this couple’s theme in Los Angeles in 2014.
Butterfly: Klum bugged out for this one. When she was a butterfly in 2014, she Klum evoked the bug part of the butterfly instead of the potentially sexy side.
Mario and Luigi: Best friends Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne dressed as the Super Nintendo Brothers in 2014.
Karl Lagerfeld: The director of Chanel is easy to impersonate. Fellow designer Roberto Cavalli tried it out in 2007.
Mermaid: One of Kardashian’s most famous looks is when she dressed as a mermaid for a Midori party in 2012.
Poison Ivy: This is another one of Kim Kardashian’s signature outfits. She chose this Halloween costume in 2011.
Traditional witch or vampire: Sometimes, the stars like to pick conventional outfits too. Chloe Grace Moretz went with this look in 2012.
Take inspiration from celebrities with caution: “Dancing With the Stars” judge Julianne Hough found herself in hot water when she dressed as “Crazy Eyes” from the Netflix series “Orange Is The New Black” in 2013. She donned “blackface” to look like African American actress Uzo Aduba, which prompted her to issue an apology.
