Among the consumers reaching for the run-of-the-mill costumes hanging on the walls of Spencers and other seasonal pop-up stores notorious for French maid get-ups, there’s the occasional bright spark of inspiration that forces the average Halloween fanatic to up the ante and take their costume to new heights. Of course, if you’re a celebrity, you’re not really just like us (despite what Us magazine may tell you) and your Halloween costume is nearly as important as the designs you wear on the red carpet.
As we attempt to solve the Halloween costume quandary here at the StyleCaster offices, it dawned on us to take a hint from the stars. But after all, just because you’re famous doesn’t mean you’re right.
Click through for the best (and worst) of Halloweens past and let us know which celeb is rocking your favorite fright night look!
