Everyone loves a good dress up party - celebrities are no exception.

The last few weeks saw publications filled with articles about costume how-tos, pumpkin spiced drinks, themed party ideas and a whole lot more halloweeny stuff.

Here is a pick of our winners.

Rita Ora

You guessed it. The singer dressed up as a perfectly impersonated Post Malone. Definitely a 10/10 for creativity.

If you're completely unfamiliar with video games, Teyana is dressed up as Kitana, a princess warrior from the popular video game Mortal Kombat. I'm a super MK fan so I definitely think Teyana nailed this one.

Tracee-Ellis Ross

What would Halloween be without a proper Wakanda costume?. Thank you Tracee-Ellis Ross.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall channeled her inner Austin Powers fem bot and it was both sexy and cute.

Zoë Kravitz 

Big up to Zoë for her #vampireawareness sleepy vampire look. We're certain vamps all over appreciate your effort, we know we do!

Taraji P. Henson

The beautiful Taraji took us back to the 70s in this Christie Love inspired ensemble.


The songstress left almost nothing to the imagination in this poison ivy get-up and we loved the daringness of it all. I mean what would halloween be without someone getting a little sexy?

Lindiwe Suttle

Bow down...

Check out how it was done. All we can say is wow.
