The Best Celebrity Halloween Costumes of 2023

Originally Published: 


Halloween tends to loses a bit of its magic when you get older. Yes, you can still dress up, go out, and enjoy yourself, but you’ll never truly recapture the childhood magic of dressing like your favorite cartoon character and knocking on strangers’ doors. Thank god for celebrity Halloween then—not that it can ever replace the feeling of a bag slowly filling up with candy on a crisp October night—but the photoshoots and intricate costumes displayed by stars around the holiday are a welcomed, aesthetic substitute. Think of the never-ending flood of celebrity costumes this time of year as the modern equivalent to a school Halloween parade—a fun celebration, a chance to see what everyone else dressed as, now just with a lot more disposable income.

Because whether you’re a celebrity hound or not, you have to admit, celebrity Halloween is fun. The stars go all in, planning their looks for weeks in advanced, getting the best makeup and hair artists to bring their vision come to life. Sometimes, it’s all just for a photoshoot (which is oddly sterile, but still impressive), but they’re just as likely to take their costumes out for a spin at a spooky LA bash. Last year, Heidi Klum delivered per usual, dressing up as a full-on worm, but we also got some fun surprises, like Gwyneth Paltrow as Winnie the Pooh and Hailey Bieber as Laetitia Casta on the 1999 YSL Runway. And this year proved to be no different. The stars turned out numerous looks for parties, photoshoots, and yes, actual trick-or-treating. So, keep scrolling to see every celebrity Halloween costume from 2023.
