Now that Halloween has finally arrived, Hollywood's A-listers are stepping out for some Halloween festivities, attending parties such as the Casamigos-hosted soirée in Beverly Hills and, of course, Heidi Klum's annual bash—which means that we're now blessed with so many amazing celebrity costumes on Instagram.
There was Nina Dobrev's spot-on re-creation of Gigi Hadid and the Chanel runway show crasher Marie S'infiltre, and then there was Gabrielle Union's throwback Bring It On moment that has us nostalgic for the 2000s-era movie, but of all the celebrity looks that graced Instagram so far, there's only a handful that we're crowning the best. Scroll down to see our favorite celebrity Halloween costumes of 2019, according to us. With October 31 upon us (and a weekend full of post-Halloween parties to follow), it's never too late to fill up on inspiration.
It's not every day that celebs dress up as other celebs, but when it happens, it's always a moment. Such is the case with the first of Nina Dobrev's costumes: pop singer Billie Eilish. Loads of silver chain necklaces, goth makeup, and designer logo wares were in order.
Crawford isn't the only disco queen we saw this year. Singer Jhené Aiko stepped out as Foxxy Cleopatra as played by Beyoncé in Goldmember. It may be a retro look, but we could easily see her crystal top being sold by brands like Area.
Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler as Sally and Jack From The Nightmare Before Christmas
Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler always pull out all the stops for their costumes—we love how much they love Halloween—and this year they went as the couple from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas.
When you dare to post the original image alongside your costume, you've got to be pretty confident that your own version is spot-on. And there's no denying that Shanina Shaik is a spot-on Elena in The Legend of Zorro (played by Catherine Zeta-Jones), from her choker necklace to her lace-up corset.
Ciara and Russell Wilson re-created the magic of Beyoncé and Jay-Z's shoot inside the Louvre. To really nail the impersonation, Ciara posted a series of outfit shots at different angles to her Instagram, a true Bey power move.
It wouldn't be Halloween if no one went as a character from Mean Girls,would it? Thankfully, we don't have to entertain the thought of a Halloween without the iconic movie since Busy Philipps graced us with her Mrs. George costume, Juicy Couture velour tracksuit, camcorder, martini, and all.
Kim Kardashian West makes a very convincing Elle Woods from Legally Blonde.She re-created not one but several iconic looks from the movie, though our favorite is still the pink-dress-and-fluffy-pen combo.
Bella Hadid went as Fred Flintstone, and the look was straight fire. Between her pixie-cut wig, bone earrings, and leather cuffs, her costume is easily one of our favorite interpretations of an animated character—well, one of our favorite costumes period.
Fans of The Twilight Zone will recognize Ariana Grande's costume as a reference to one of the show's episodes entitled "Eye of the Beholder," in which one of the characters undergoes a series of plastic surgery procedures in order to look "normal."
Winnie Harlow showed off Barbie's sporty side, wearing a matching sports bra and tennis skirt, complete with Nike Air Max sneakers and tube socks. Can you blame us for wanting to wear this when it's not Halloween, too?
Nina Dobrev and Lane Cheek as Marie S'infiltre and Gigi Hadid
Last (but certainly not least) is a costume that fashion insiders will immediately recall from this past Paris Fashion Week. Remember when Gigi Hadid escorted a runway crasher out at the Chanel show? Nina Dobrev and friend Lane Cheek nailed the memorable moment via Chanel classics. (Swipe to see the original reference.)
