October 31st is here and, uh, we still don't have a costume. Here are some celebrity Halloween costume ideas to get you started...

Trick or treating is back on the cards this year, and if you're unsure what or who to dress up as, look no further than your favourite celebrity Halloween costumes for inspiration.

Whilst it's tempting to just throw some fake blood over a Victorian-looking dress, some A-listers go above and beyond every year to come up with genius ideas.

One of the best ones comes courtesy of Kim Kardashian, who in 2019 won at everything by recreating Elle Wood's Harvard University admissions video. To be fair the whole Kardashian-Jenner clan always comes up trumps, and of course Heidi Klum always pulls off a showstopper, getting a whole team of makeup artists to create her looks, which in the past have included aliens, old ladies and Jessica Rabbit.

There are a few celebrities who have gone above and beyond to tickle our funny bones, with creative Halloween costumes that are a spin on the regular sexy-anything. Kerry Washington dressed as Lionel Richie this year, while Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly made a very convincing Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. 

We’ve put together a gallery of the best celebrity Halloween costumes below, but if you need a dash more inspiration then check out our favourite Halloween makeup ideas and Halloween makeup tutorials.
