Every year, there’s only one thing more exciting than planning out your own Halloween costume: taking a looking at all your favorite celebrities’ Halloween costumes instead! With Heidi Klum’s epic costume last year — showing up as Princess Fiona from Shrek — we can’t wait to see which celebs will blow us away with their costumes in 2019.
And let’s not forget to mention the star-studded Halloween parties. Celebs like Mariah Carey, Kylie Jenner, Kate Hudson, and Katy Perry have all thrown crazy costume parties in the past, and their famous friends go all out for the occasion. Heidi Klum — of aforementioned Shrek costume fame — also famously throws an annual Halloween party. Photos from these events always inspire our costumes for years to come.
Of course, celebrities don’t need to go out to have a fabulous Halloween: Last year, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend (wearing spot-on Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip costumes) never even made it out of the house. But as we know from Teigen’s social media, their best nights happen at home anyway.
When it comes to 2019 looks, some of these stars outdid themselves. Here are the best celebrity Halloween costumes — so far.
Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos had so many epic Halloween looks this year: Barbie and Ken, Addams family (full group costume below), and more.
The Live with Kelly and Ryan crew went all out with their Addams Family costume: Kelly as Morticia, Ryan as Pugsley, producer Michael Gelman as Lurch, production manager Art Moore as Uncle Fester, and Mark Consuelos stepping in as Gomez Addams. (Oh yeah, and that’s Kelly on the left dressed as Wednesday too.)
