Although the COVID-19 pandemic prevented Hollywood’s usual Halloween festivities, celebrities still put together some iconic costumes to celebrate the holiday. From Lizzo as the fly on Mike Pence’s head to Lil Nas X’s Nicki Minaj, here are this year’s best Halloween costumes, courtesy of social media.
Pop superstar Lizzo dressed up as the fly on Mike Pence’s head during the vice presidential debate, completing the look with “Vote” pins and a pair of wings. Naturally, her caption was “FLYYYYY AF!” Lizzo also made some hilarious videos to go with the costume.
Lil Nas X just might have won Halloween with his spot-on Nicki Minaj “Super Bass” costume, complete with a motorcycle ice sculpture. Barbs, unite!
The Weeknd is renowned for his meticulous Halloween costumes, and this year was no exception: He spent six hours with prosthetic make-up designer Mike Marino to transform into Eddie Murphy as the Nutty Professor.
Kim Kardashian West disguised herself as “Tiger King” star Carole Baskin, with her four children as tigers and best friend Jonathan Cheban as Joe Exotic himself.
“The Princess Switch” star Vanessa Hudgens opted for a comfy-yet-cute costume by dressing up as a teddy bear along with her dog, Darla. Earlier in the month, she went high fashion in a Black Widow-inspired outfit. But these are only one of many looks that Hudgens tried on for Halloween, so check out the rest of her feed for some spooky inspiration.
