halloween celebrity costume beyond words

We can’t all totally slay Halloween like Heidi Klum does, but you can still gather inspiration from celebrities and throw together a killer last-minute costume that won’t break the bank or require a ton of effort (all puns intended). Here are some of our favorite celebrity Halloween costumes.


Beyoncé as Barbie

You can never go wrong with a classic Barbie costume. To copy Beyoncé’s Barbie look, simply pull your hair into a tight and high updo, throw on your favorite girly outfit, put on a bold lip (preferably hot pink or red), and accessorize with your best earrings and sunglass combo! If you have a little extra time, grab the biggest box you can find and deck it out with everything pink and Barbie-esque and hop inside!

A classic couples costume that just about anyone can pull off is Danny and Sandy from Grease. To get the Sandy look, make your hair as big and curly as possible, throw on a red lip, and pull out your sexiest, figure-hugging, all-black outfit and you’re good to go. If your man isn’t totally game for a full-on Halloween costume, Danny is the perfect option because all he needs is a black-on-black outfit and a leather jacket!


Vanessa Hudgens as a Skeleton

Heidi Klum is known as the queen of Halloween, but Vanessa Hudgens is a close second (her Instagram has been a Halloween tribute all month long)! Take a cue from Vanessa and try your hand at skeleton makeup. All you need is black and white face paint, or even light foundation and a black eyeliner if you’re in a pinch.


Martha Hunt as Elvira in Scarface

Another super easy costume to throw together last minute is Elvira from Scarface. Martha Hunt wore this costume and looked absolutely amazing, and you can too with a sexy white dress, red lipstick, and glittery earrings.

Probably the easiest costume idea of our entire Halloween roundup – the unicorn! To achieve the unicorn look all you need is a horn – hello, Amazon prime – lots of pink glittery makeup, and a high, slicked back ponytail. The best part about the unicorn look is that the colors and options are limitless – go wild!


Irina Shayk as a Cat

Irina Shayk is undoubtedly the most beautiful kitty we’ve ever seen and you can copy her look with just a few items you likely already have. You’ll need cat ears and black eyeliner (for the perfect cat eye plus whiskers and a kitty nose).


Lauren Conrad as Cruella Deville

There’s nothing quite like a Disney villain is there? Steal Lauren Conrad’s 2017 Halloween look by throwing on a bold red lipstick, a little black dress, a white faux-fur coat, red gloves, and some green eyeshadow! You can pick up a black and white wig or use temporary black and white hairspray.
