9 Star-struck pets dressed like their favorite celebrities

Every year, we see celebrities dressed in a variety of animal costumes for Halloween. It’s time the pets turned the tables on them and sported clever getups of their favorite famous folks.

Marilyn Monroe

More than 50 years have passed since the sex symbol died, but she’s no less loved today… as evidenced by this bodacious canine.

Miley Cyrus

What a good doggie! (He’s secretly relieved that he got to wear the wrecking ball costume instead of baring all as the risqué pop star.)

Gene Wilder

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the name Gene Wilder? Willy Wonka, of course!

Elvis Presley

This four-legged fella “ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog, cryin’ all the time.” You’d cry, too, if your owner insisted on dressing you up all the time…

Dolly Parton

This country sweetie will be sporting this Dolly-inspired getup from nine to five.

James Arness

Thanks to Gunsmoke reruns (and outstanding costumes like Duncan’s), we’ll always remember Arness’s portrayal of Marshal Matt Dillon.

Malala Yousafzai

“I Am Malala.” This dog does an outstanding job of portraying the Pakistani teen who was shot in the head by the Taliban. What a wonderful celebrity to represent!

Katy Perry

Of all the pop star’s candy hair colors, this pooch chose blue. ‘Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar!


If anyone in ancient Egypt was a celebrity, it was Cleopatra. (Yeah, this is a cat, not a dog — and we suspect that Cleopatra, who kept a leopard as a pet, would have wanted it that way.)

Sally Jessy Raphael

The former talk show host always opted for oversized red frames, but we think Piper looks chic in her trendy black eyeglasses.
