AS A RESULT OF Halloween falling rather awkwardly on a Tuesday this year, celebrity partygoers have had to get creative with timing their celebrations. Clearly, that creativity has rubbed off on their styling choices too. Celebrities have gone all out on their costuming, from the tastefully topical to the genuinely terrifying.
There’s a lot of pressure on the Hollywood elite to craft a memorable Halloween costume. Their chosen stylings are not only hugely influential, they’re also a reflection of what’s controlling the cultural zeitgeist of the time, providing something of a documentation for the history books of tomorrow. As such, celebrity costumes have to be on point. An indescribable blend of clever, simple, sexy, terrifying, and funny is required to master Halloween costuming, but never too much of anything. Don’t feel too bad for these celebrities though, they likely have a team of professional stylists masterminding their outfits.
We’re only now reaching actual Halloween—otherwise known as October 31st—but celebrities, like everyone else, have adapted to the unfortunate timing of the big day by kicking off the festivities early. With a range of high-profile parties taking place over the weekend, we already have a good indication of what the best celebrity Halloween fits of 2023 will be, and we’ve collated them into a single, easily digestible list. Enjoy.
What are the best celebrity Halloween costumes of 2023?
Justin and Hailey Bieber
As Pebbles Flintstone and Bamm-Bamm Rubble
A classic pairing and a classic couples’ costume. Upon closer inspection you can also spot Florence Pugh on the edge of the frame, as Guy Fieri of course.
Austin Butler and Kaia Gerber
As Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick
Unorthodox—as was Warhol’s trademark—and certainly original.
Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly
As Kill Bill‘s Gogo Yubari and The Bride
A slightly unexpected pairing, but did you expect anything less from Fox and MGK?
Channing Tatum and Zoë Kravitz
As Rosemary’s Baby‘s Rosemary and her baby
These couples costumes are getting out of control! This costume pairing is bordering on unhinged.
As Art the clown from the Terrifier franchise
Tyga is the runaway winner for this year’s scariest celebrity Halloween costume. And if you’ve seen any of the Terrifier films, you’ll know how accurate this costume is.
As V for Vendetta‘s V
It’s becoming increasingly hard to tell who’s under these masks.
As Betty Boop
We’re big fans of the Betty Boop revival. The cartoon was a little before Ice Spice’s time though, wasn’t it?
Justin Bieber (again)
As a… scuba diver?
There’s nothing like a costume change to spice up a Halloween party. We can’t be sure how much planning went into this outfit, if any. All Bieber likely had to do for this costume was pull a few things out of his closet. There’s no reason you can’t do the same.
We’re not exactly sure who Cole Sprouse went as this Halloween. There’s shades of Indiana Jones, a hint of Resident Evil‘s Leon Kennedy, and a mix of just about every 80s action star. Sprouse made the biggest mistake of Halloween costuming: going as someone that’s not immediately recognisable. He still looks good though, as whoever he’s supposed to be.
As Morticia Addams
With the enduring popularity of The Addams Family and the more recent surge of interest in Wednesday, Adele’s costume appeals to all ages.
As Marilyn Monroe
Simple. Tasteful. Accurate. Instantly recognisable. Jenner ticks all the boxes here, and all it took was a decent blonde wig.
Yes, Noah Centineo is that guy that goes as himself for Halloween. The indifferent Joker to the Batman of party planners everywhere.
