10 of our Favorite Celebrity Costumes

Halloween’s in six days and you still don’t have a costume? You can take the easy route and pick up bloody nail wraps or black lipstick—or you can spend the weekend committing to a costume. You’ll find enough inspiration to get you started above, from Toni Garrn’s super easy football look to Hillary Duff’s complicated—but beautiful—homage to the Day of the Dead.

    At V Magazine’s New York bash, Candice Swanepoel proves that you can be a sexy vampire while still wearing clothes. A bold red lip and a drop of blood go a long way.

    Why wear a mask when you can just paint on your costume like Giovanna Battaglia did for Carine Roitfeld’s Paris ball? (Click here for a how-to from her M.A.C. makeup artist!)

    Gwen Stefani got in touch with her girly side when she dressed up as Cinderella at Kate Hudson’s Halloween party in Los Angeles.

    You probably have the makings of a ‘bad Sandy’ costume in your closet, just throw on a wig to cop Jessica Hart’s costume from The Standard Hotel’s Sinners & Saints party in New York.

    We love it when someone chooses scary over sexy. Kate Beckinsale channeled The Bride of Frankenstein while trick-or-treating in Los Angeles.

    For a less laborious costume, just wear makeup two shades too light for your skin tone—and wear all black. You can tell people you’re Kate Moss on Halloween.

    Smear some black cream liner under your eyes and throw on a football jersey like model Toni Garrn. You’ll be the most comfortable person at any Halloween party.

    We like to think Liv Tyler had an old Margiela jacket lying around and accessorized accordingly. Proof that all black—plus a red lip—works all of the time.

    You can’t go wrong with Ziggy Stardust. One tip? We’d add glitter to model Alana Bunte’s near perfect lightning bolt.

  • 10 of 10

    Wondering what to do with that flower crown you haven’t touched since last summer’s music festival? Follow Hillary Duff’s lead.
