The Best Celebrity Fancy Dress Costumes

Have you ever felt you’re a bit lacking in the creativity department when it comes to fancy dress costumes? Have no fear; the celebrities have got you covered. Here are just a few of our personal favourites:

1. Katy Perry.

Miss Perry certainly never falls short in the fancy dress stakes but the life-size ‘lonely Cheeto’ costume she displayed last Halloween is definitely our favourite so far.

2. Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo.

Adam Levine – of Maroon 5 fame – is renowned for the costume parties that him and the band throw every year in LA and his outfits (along with his supermodel wife Behati) never disappoint.

3. Kate Moss or ‘Cara Delevingne’.

Controversial as ever, last year Kate Moss decided to dress up as her supermodel counterpart Cara Delevingne. And you know what? I don’t think I’d be able to tell the difference if they were stood in a line up.

4. Kim Kardashian.

The typical mermaid costume certainly isn’t known as a jaw-dropper when it comes to fancy dress. I mean, it is pretty much guaranteed to appear at any costume party. But when you put a Kim Kardashian spin on it? That’s a totally different story…

5. Taylor Swift.

A personal favourite, what could be better than a unicorn outfit, complete with angelic wings? Taylor Swift always shows us how to do things the cool way – without having to flash too much flesh in the process, I might add.

6. The Spice Girls.

What could be better than the Spice Girls being spotted at a fancy dress party… dressed as their very own Spice Girl alter egos?! This picture made a lot of people very happy.

7. Rihanna.

If you’re Rihanna’s niece, aside from being showered with amazing gifts, you can guarantee that you’re going to be given a dose of her best fancy dress costumes at your birthday parties and her most recent Flinstone ‘Pebbles’ impression is no exception.

8. ‘Bee-yoncé’.

Get it? Beyoncé dressed as a Bee… Very clever Bey, but deep down I can’t help feeling you could do way better than this.

9. Anne Hathaway.

The dark features, the beautiful smile, the alluring stance… Anne Hathaway certainly makes for the best version of Cleopatra we’ve ever seen.

10. Emma Roberts.

Don’t you just love a family tribute? This was exactly the case when Emma Roberts dressed as her Aunt Julia Roberts’ most famous role in 90s hit Pretty Woman. However, the fact that she played a prostitute who is rescued by a handsome stranger perhaps isn’t the most appropriate thing in the world.

11. Heidi Klum and Seal.

It still makes me very sad that these two are no longer together – especially as they were known as the king and queen of fancy dress, hosting a party in Las Vegas every Halloween. Here are just a couple of Heidi Klum and Seal’s marvellous creations…

Another ape themed costume, we have to hand it to British socialite Jemima Khan, she really pulled it out the bag with this one. Although she must have been incredibly hot in there!

13. Ashley Madekwe.

Fashion blogger / actress Ashley Madekwe really excelled herself when she and husband Iddo dressed as Chanel’s Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld and his world-famous kitten Choupette in 2013. We’d give anything to know what the famously tight-lipped Mr Lagerfeld thought of this.

14. Guy and Rocco Ritchie.

Another particularly convincing costume, we’ve got to hand it to the Ritchies, this outfit is totally on point with the recent success and notoriety of Breaking Bad.

15. Liv Tyler.

What better way is there to announce your pregnancy than to wear an actual ‘bun in the oven’ costume to a costume party? Liv Tyler, you are a genius.
