Getting dressed up is as much a part of the job for Hollywood’s elite as acting in front of the camera, and many of them take that job seriously—sporting all manner of high-fashion outfits and employing high-paid stylists just to make sure they look good on the red carpet.

As such, it’s no surprise that celebrities take their Halloween costume ideas incredibly seriously, often planning their elaborate costumes weeks ahead of time (we’re looking at you, Heidi Klum!). Stars’ costume decisions often mirror their personalities—is it any surprise that Kim Kardashian’s costume every year tends to be a “sexy” version of something?—but in some cases, they reveal a hidden sense of humor or a playful side. If not for her annual Halloween party, you might never guess that Heidi Klum gets seriously into her costume, and doesn’t care about looking good: in 2011, she dressed up like an ape-woman from “Planet of the Apes!”

From Heidi Klum dressed as an eight-foot-tall superhero to Kim Kardashian covered in poison ivy, we’ve rounded up 20 of our favorite celebrity Halloween costumes. Get inspired!
