What's Halloween without a full glam squad, several hours spent in hair and makeup, and a costume you've been planning for the last six months? When it comes to the spooky holiday, celebrities oftentimes aren't just like us. Instead of going for a quick and easy D.I.Y. type of costume (confession: we love that kind), our favorite stars use trick-or-treat season as an opportunity to be more extra than ever. Here's a peek at 11 our favorite, most definitely not understated, costumes of all time.
1. Jenna Dewan-Tatum as a Unicorn
Fact: on Halloween, there's so such thing as too much highlighter. Shine on with your irridescent glow, Jenna!
2. Kylie Jenner as Christina Aguilera
In 2016, the Kylie Cosmetics mogul channeled a Dirrty-era Aguilera with dirrty blonde hair that hung down to her waist and — you know it — leather chaps. Judging from her jubilant repost of Kylie's costume snap, it seem that the singer was impressed with the look.
3. Miley Cyrus as Lil' Kim
In other celebrity-dressing-as-a-celebrity situations, Miley Cyrus pulled of Lil Kim's look with aplomb back in 2013. And, guess who was all about it? This Halloween love fest is sweeter than candy corn.
4. LeeAnne Locken as Two-Face
It was the Halloween costume heard 'round Dallas. We can neither confirm nor deny that LeeAnne Locken's sassy costume was intended as a dig at Stephanie Hollman. But, we do know one thing: the getup worked quite well in terms of making a splash.
5. Heidi Klum as Jessica Rabbit
Heidi Klum Halloweens harder than any celebrity out there, and throws a legendary bash each year. Though it's tough to pick a single costume that stands out — she was clones of herself last year, for Pete's sake — Klum's 2015 metamorphosis into the sexy cartoon character will always stand out in our minds. She even had a prosthetic booty put in place to mimic Rabbit's famous curves!
6. Katy Perry as Hillary Clinton
Katy Perry also busted out major prosthetics to transform herself into her candidate of choice for the 2016 presidential election. Hillary, is that you? Perry's boyfriend at the time, Orlando Bloom, dressed as Bill Clinton to turn this into an epic couple's costume.
7. The Crawford-Gerber Clan as Punks
There is nothing better than a good family costume — especially when a family is as genetically blessed as this one. In 2016, Cindy Crawford and Rande, Kaia, and Presley Gerber wore plaid, leather, and every electric hue of hair color under the sun. Kaia totally reminds us of a human Jem doll here, and we love it.
8. Beyonce, Blue Ivy, and Tina Knowles as Salt-n-Pepa
The family that dresses as '90s girls groups together, stays together. (And definitely gets the most candy on the block.) In 2016, Bey and her family were #squadgoals.
9. Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake as Trolls
What's trick-or-treating without a little networking? Last year, J.T. and his crew dressed up as characters from his then-upcoming film, Trolls. Who wouldn't want to catch the flick, after seeing this adorable family's commitment? We love the way this couple supports each other.
10. Gwen Stefani as a Cowgirl
The singer loves dressing up in her everyday life, so just imagine how much she loves Halloween! In 2015, she looked like Punky Brewster gone cowgirl in hues of bright orange, pink, and blue. Judging from the fake blood on her neck, it looks like there was some sort of nasty tractor accident in this character's past. Spooky!
11. Rihanna as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle
In 2014, the Fenty Beauty founder managed to bring major sex appeal to a turtle costume. What more can we say? Rihanna wins again.
