Top 10 Celebrity Halloween Costumes: 2015 Edition

No matter how hard we try, we'll never be able to create Halloween costumes like the ones you see in Hollywood each year. These people have access to special effects artists and costume designers. Even if they don't, they have motivation to create the best costume possible. While you and I can show off to our small group of friends and a few hundred social media followers, these people are dressing up to show off to millions.

In 2015, celebs were more creative than ever in their dress-up efforts. Here are the top 10 celebrity Halloween costumes for 2015:

#10: Katy Perry as Mic Drop

This costume is a little weird, but...unique?




#9: Ellen Degeneres as Karla Kardashian

Yes, all the Kardashians dressed up...but who cares? Much better is Ellen making fun of the Kardashians!




#8: Tyra Banks as Richard Branson

There were quite a few gender-swapping costumes this year. I think Tyra's was the best.



#7: The Rock as Popeye

I can't decide if this is scary or cool.



#6: Jessica Alba and a friend as Romy and Michelle

They weren't too eager to pose for pictures for some reason, but they also posted this grainy picture of themselves. I like this full-color one better:




#5: Beyonce and Jay Z as Prince Akeem and Queen Aoleon in Coming to America

Fun tribute to a great 1980s Eddie Murphy comedy.



#4: Neil Patrick Harris and Family as the Star Wars cast

Neil and his family are Halloween costume standouts every year.



#3: Gigi Hadid as Sandy from Grease

Few people have the figure to pull off this childhood dream costume. A supermodel does.



#2: Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson as Christie Brinkley and Clark Griswold

Christie Brinkley approves.



#1 Heidi Klum as Jessica Rabbit

You have to give a standing ovation to the work that went into creating this costume.



Did you see any Halloween costumes you found amazing? If so, link to them in the comments. (Wish we could do photo comments here!)

  1. That last one is really amazing. She looks plastic.
    The Rock as Popeye - scary.

    1. And she went through HOURS to get to that point. I just can't imagine going to that much trouble! Jessica Biel dressed up as Jessica Rabbit on SNL once and did a pretty good job, but nothing like this.

  2. All great individual looks really.

    1. The mic drop? Katy Perry apparently has interesting costumes every year. She goes more for "funny."

  4. Some great costumes there, I think they're all wonderful.

  5. The Branson one is amazing. We didn't see many exciting or funny costumes this year.

    1. Someone dressed up as Guy Fietti...a model? It was pretty good, too, but I had no idea who she was and the costume wasn't good enough to justify explaining it!

  6. Neil Patrick's family wins it for me! Beyonce was horrid in this one, but I liked her Storm X men costume from last week.

    1. I'm now thinking Neil Patrick should have been second place. I really liked Jessica Simpson's take--probably because I'm not really a Star Wars fan.

    2. I'm not either at all but just look how great his kids are :) They're totally enjoying it!

  7. Interesting shots... I didn't see that many costumes this year as we didn't have trick-or-treaters and I no longer have a child who dresses up and goes out.

    1. We didn't have a single trick or treater...not even ONE! I did see some cute costumes at a restaurant, though, when we went to dinner.

  9. My pick is Heidi Klum's choice of Halloween costume. An amazing transformation, it must come with a hefty price.
    Thanks or the entertainment Stephanie.

    Have a great day.
    Hugs,

    1. She hosts the Halloween party--I guess the social media exposure she gets out of going to all that trouble makes it worth the price of paying those makeup artists?

  10. Heidi Klum's costume looks good, but is rather creepy

    1. I know...it can't have been comfortable!

  11. Jessica Rabbit was my first childhood crush. Seeing her in real life though is terrifying.

    I definitely like the Harris' the best. It was up there with the Trudeaus, though they didn't get their kids in on it. Should have made them R2 and 3P0.

    1. I had to look that up...I didn't know who they were!

  12. Ellen Degeneres is a comedic genius - ha! And the Mic Drop was quite unique. Overall lots of fun costumes without oozing blood or dripping eyeballs :-)

    1. That's interesting--I didn't notice, but I did seem to choose costumes that were on the happier side!

  13. I actually think I like the Rock as Pop-eye. I can be quirky sometimes. Neil's family looks great.

    ReplyDelete
  14. What a fun post and I'd not seen a one of these until today. Thanks.

    Have a terrific day and weekend. ☺

  15. Heidi Klum's costume isn't bad. It's just worn that way.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love the Star Wars costumes. Jessica Rabbit is great but what scares me is that some crazy nuts actually get their boobs and face to really look that way! Ellen Degeneres is funny and the costume is scary true. I actually like The Rock-I don't find it scary...I just kept looking at his arms:) For once I wish some of these good looking gals would dress up like a chicken or something. Katy Perry is having fun though and it is original

  17. Heidi Klum as Jessica Rabbit is excellent - but scary. Why do people have those implants for real. Even as a costume it would take hours and hours.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow! Heidi Klum disappeared in that costume!! These are all great.

    I would have NEVER guess that was Tyra Banks. Perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Heidi Klum looks weird.
    But yes to the NPH family costumes!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love Halloween but only saw a few of these before your post.
    I find it interesting, who people decide to be on the one day they are able to be anything.

    ReplyDelete
  21. They are all great, but Jessica Rabbit takes the cake!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I remained as far away from the costumed as I could. So, no great costumes to report here.

    ReplyDelete
  23. These are all ... umm ... different, is the best word I can think of. They're also hilarious and creative. I didn't see a single costume this year. No trick or treaters and I stayed home. My cats didn't dress up. Neither did I. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm a fan of the Rock, what can I say, I like his arms....

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hahaha! I loved Ellen's costume—that is hilarious! And I clicked on the link to see more of how Heidi Klum became Jessica Rabbit. That is CRAZY! I would never have recognized her with that face mask they put on her, even the fake boobs and butt! Wow.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like the Rock's costume...I think

    ReplyDelete
  27. All great ideas for costumes! I think Ellen's is hilarious and spot on.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I've loved seeing these around the web :) Also, every year I find a little part of myself wishing I could be adopted into Neil Patrick Harris' household.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like simple homemade by kids costumes best of all. We see many at our small town Halloween parade on Maine Street. This is Maine.

  30. I have to admit these are good! Clark Griswold is really amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I am not a big fan of wearing Halloween costumes. Heidi Klum's is nice.

  33. These are great. I had to pin The Rock. I think I smelllllllll what he's cooking... SPINACH! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow, I'm impressed by Heidi and Ellen's outfits! :-)

    Greetings from London.

  35. All look fab. Great costumes, must be so fun to dress up as others!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Klum always comes up with something interesting. I love Ellen's.

    ReplyDelete
  37. You know The Rock's might be a little strange, but I think his choice shows a healthy, fun spirit

    ReplyDelete
  38. I like The Rock's the best, though I think it was last year he painted himself green and went as The Hulk. If nothing else, he's working with what he's got. ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  39. It's quite scary how well Tyra Banks resembles Richard Branson! Gotta love the Harris family most though. Dressing up should be about the kids.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow! There's so many amazing ones. That Jessica Rabbit one is impressive. How did she manage to look so plastic?

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have to say that number 4 is my fave! The photos on the news from the Hollywood Halloween street party were just amazing!
