All The Celeb Halloween Outfits This Year From Appropriately Spooky To My Childhood Is Ruined

celebrity Halloween costumes 2022

It’s that time of year folks, the costume event more coveted than the Met Gala because its theme always delivers. That’s right, it’s Halloween baby! Buckle up as we go on a spOoOoOky journey of exploration into the horniest, scariest and most downright cooked celebrity Halloween costumes for 2022’s scariest non-holiday.

Let’s start off with Frankie Jonas and his girlfriend Anna Olson who had one of the most fun costumes this Halloween, in my humble opinion.

The pair dressed up as Joe Jonas and Taylor Swift and recreated a scene from the concert film Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience. In case you forgot, Joe and Taylor dated on-and-off in the early 2000s and very much leaned into the good Christian teen trend that was popular among Disney stars at the time.

Frankie and Anna even included Joe’s infamous purity ring, which is the best part imo.

Next up we have Kim Kardashian, who absolutely slayed as Mystique from X-Men. It’s spooky, it’s sexy, it’s hyperrealistic. 10/10, we love to see it.

Kim also dressed her kids as ’90s music icons Aaliyah, Sade Adu, Snoop Dogg and Eazy E.

Tbh, this was a ~move~ by Kim who has previously copped flack for dressing as Aaliyah herself on her 42nd birthday.

Unlike her sister though, Kendall Jenner did NOT kill it. Unless by “it”, we are referring to my childhood.

Kendall went as Jessie the cowgirl from Toy Story 2. Does she look great? Yes. The hair, the freckles, the photoshoot all look incredible. Is her costume elaborate and well made? Also yes. By most accounts, she too is slaying — but making Jessie, a toy for children, sexy is just fkn weird to me. Like, why??????? It gives me the ick.

Let’s pivot to an actually good Halloween costume, in every sense, shall we?

Riverdale girlies Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendez and Madelaine Petch went as the three witches from Hocus Pocus. The costumes are classic, spooky, accurate AND sexy without being weird… 10/10. Also I just love how much they seem like genuine besties who are having a good time.

The Kid Laroi dressed up as Robin (which thought meant Robin Hood, something I will never get over).

Now that I’ve seen him with his girlfriend Katarina Deme as Starfire, the costume works —  but not gonna lie, when I first glimpsed his costume via pap pics, my initial thought was “Is that Robin or Barnacle Boy?”. As in, the guy from Spongebob. Sorry! It was the gloves and undies, I reckon!

Olivia Rodrigo, never one to disappoint, dressed up as Betty Boop and this is definitely one of the best costumes I reckon. Simple, not overdone, and yet still iconic.

Paris Hilton went as Sailor Moon for Halloween, and sure the costume is pretty and she looks great but honestly… it’s kinda boring. If you’re gonna be that rich, at least give me a spectacle!

You know who did give us spectacle? Janelle Monae, who dressed up as the opera singing alien from the ’90s cult classic sci-fi film The Fifth Element. I mean, just look at this!!!

Blue costumes seem to be in this year, because Halle Bailey dressed up as one of the blue people in Avatar, which I normally would consider a crime but on her? I’ll allow it.

Kylie Jenner dressed up as Frankenstein’s bride and unveiled her look through a series of black and wait portraits which, unfortunately, is icon behaviour.

But wait, there’s more! Kylie unveiled a second Halloween costume for 2022, this time of Elvira from Elvira: Mistress of Darkness. Ugh I LOVE Halloween costumes based on ’80s nostalgia, they honestly encapsulate the spooky camp of it all the best.

Say what you will about the Kardashian-Jenner clan, but I do adore their commitment to the bit when it comes to costumes.

Speaking of commitment to the bit, Ariana Grande also impressed fans with her elaborate costumes — yes, plural. She dressed up as multiple characters from mockumentary Best In Show (2000) and created iconic scenes shot-by-shot. She truly is a 2000s nostalgia-core queen.

That Jennifer Coolidge voice is actually spot on??

Rebel Wilson also came through with multiple costumes. The first one she unveiled was as a Barbie doll still in its box, which is very COVID-safe of her. We love to see it.

She also dressed up as the creepy twins from The Shining with her girlfriend Ramona Agruma.

Next up we’ve got Lizzo who smashed out an incredible sparkly Marge Simpson outfit.

The wig alone could definitely hide a bottle of Smirnoff on your way into the club.

JoJo Siwa slithered in (get it?) with this extremely fetch Draco Malfoy outfit.

The bleached hair was on point and the spiral staircase in the background really added to the Hogwarts-y vibe.

This is the one occasion I won’t get mad at a celeb for flexing their mansion.

Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox did their best Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson impression.

MGK and Fox are kinda the 2020s version of the Baywatch star and Motley Crue drummer, in that, both couples are known for their extreme horniness. We stan.

Actress Keke Palmer let nothing and nobody down except her hair dressed as Rapunzel.

If I could also get a little feathery friend to hold my excess hair, I’d do it in an instant.

Trisha Paytas and their husband Moses Hacmon gave Elvis and Priscilla Presley a run for their money posing with their respective newborn bubs.

We saved the best for last: Try Guy and fashion icon Eugene Lee Yang showed the fuck up as Eddie Munson AND Vecna from Stranger Things. Honestly this wins for me.

So there you have it. That’ll just about do us for the best celebrity Halloween costumes 2022.

Hope you were all sufficiently spooked!
