Celebrities don’t do things by halves when it comes to Halloween costumes.
Not only do they have much more cash to splash than most, they also have fans to impress. A makeshift Wednesday Addams or Count Dracula costume just won’t cut it.
This Halloween, the stars have not failed to disappoint. Heidi Klum, who’s famous for her annual stand-out costumes, held her annual star-studded bash last year, for which she dressed up as a Frankenstein-alien hybrid.
As for the rest of the stars, take a look through our round-up to see who really stood out this year:
Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and children as the Flintstones
Kim and Kanye posed with their little ones North, Chicago, Saint and Psalm to recreate characters from the Flintstones cartoon – with Kanye dressed in a giant purple suit to recreate the family’s pet dinosaur, Dino.
This family pic was such a challenge because Chicago was so scared of Dino! LOL We tried to explain and show her that it was just daddy but she didn’t get the concept yet! So shout out to the photographer for editing her in & making our family Flinstones dreams come true! pic.twitter.com/FwWwKVaPCo— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) November 1, 2019

Kylie Jenner as Ariel
Not content with simply dressing up her baby daughter this Halloween, Jenner donned her own costume: a sexy take on Ariel in ‘The Little Mermaid’.
Her outfit was complete with a pearly shell bra, fishnet style sleeves and a tiny sequinned green skirt.
Normani as Naomi Campbell
Singer and former Fifth Harmony band member Normani, 23, paid tribute to Naomi Campbell this year, recreating a look where Campbell wore an Azzedine Alaia bodysuit and a black beret. The 49-year-old supermodel loved the look so much she shared it with her own followers on Twitter.
Ciara as Beyonce and Jay Z
Singer Ciara and her husband Russell Wilson dressed as Beyonce and Jay Z for Halloween. The couple donned his and her suits in a homage to the latter couple’s BRIT award acceptance video earlier this year.
However, there was a crucial difference: while Beyonce and Jay Z posed in front of a regal style portrait of the Duchess of Sussex, Ciara and her husband had a picture of Michelle and Barack Obama behind them instead.
Gabrielle Union as ‘Bring It On’ cheerleader
The ‘Bring It On’ actor, who played the character of rival cheerleader Isis in the hit 2000 film, paid homage to her on-screen role in a red, green and yellow Clovers outfit, roping her little daughter Kaavia James Union Wade in to bolster her squad.
