Not all Halloween costumes have to be scary! Miley Cyrus, Sean "Diddy" Combs, and Kim Kardashian are just some of the celebs who've dressed up as other celebs for the holiday.


The Queen B chose to dress as another pop superstar, Janet Jackson, in 2014. Her adorable mini-me Blue Ivy went as Janet's brother Michael Jackson, obvs. (Photo: Instagram)

Kendall Jenner

The model disguised herself as Karl Lagerfeld, a man who looms large in the fashion world as the creative director at Chanel. He's also a family friend, which could make for an awkward conversation the next time she sees him! (Photo: Splash News)

Paris Hilton

No Blurred Lines here! Hilton perfectly re-created the ensemble that Miley Cyrus wore to get down with Robin Thicke during their shocking performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. (Photo: Instagram)

Kim Kardashian

The reality star and her squad — including daughter North West — dressed as the crew from Vogue magazine in 2014. As Kardashian explained in the caption, she was her friend Anna Wintour, and North was André Leon Talley. (Photo: Instagram)

Cindy Crawford

The supermodel and husband Rande Gerber showed up to the 2013 Casamigos Tequila Halloween bash dressed as Slash and Axl Rose. Think they partied like Guns N' Roses too? (Photo: Jerod Harris/Getty Images)

Victoria Justice

The Rocky Horror Picture Show actress took us back to 2006 when she dressed as the late, great Amy Winehouse, whose Back to Black album was released that year. Justice, 23, has named Winehouse as one of her favorite artists. (Photo: Instagram)


The Tommy Hilfiger clothing and the hair swooped over her eye made it clear that the Disney alum was supposed to be late R&B star Aaliyah — once a face for the brand — for Halloween 2013. Interestingly, Zendaya was cast as Aaliyah in a Lifetime biopic in 2014 but later dropped out of the project. (Photo: John M. Heller/Getty Images)

Aziz Ansari

Do you see it? With his leather jacket and memorable hairstyle, the comedian was obviously the Weeknd. He gave a shout-out to the woman who helped him steal the singer's style with this photo. (Photo: Instagram)

Miranda Kerr

The model did her best Marilyn Monroe impression in 2015. The black-and-white filter was a nice touch, but we're not fans of the visible iPhone in the picture! (Photo: Instagram)

Miley Cyrus

The fun-tastic singer-actress rocked the animal-print bodysuit, pink lipstick, and yellow hair that once symbolized Nicki Minaj's style. But the real giveaway that she was dressed as the “Anaconda” singer was the tattoo on her arm. (Photo: Twitter)

Nina Dobrev

The actress was rather posh as former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, don't you think? She and her friends brought plenty of girl power to actor Matthew Morrison's annual fete in 2015. (Photo: Thorpe/Splash News)

Kelly Ripa and Nick Lachey

Just as Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries announced plans to divorce just 72 days after a lavish wedding in 2011, Ripa and her guest co-host Lachey spoofed the couple on her morning talk show. (Photo: Jackson Lee/Splash News)

Sean “Diddy” Combs

A night at the Playboy Mansion Halloween Party in 2012 was the perfect reason for the rapper to show his purple side. Can you tell he's supposed to be Prince? (Photo: Instagram)

Miley Cyrus

With the purple wig and the strategically placed pasty alongside a pastel jumpsuit, the singer perfectly re-created rapper Lil' Kim's look at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards in 2013. Funny, since Cyrus's own VMAs look the same year continues to inspire copycats. (Photo: )

Amber Rose

Muva stepped out as Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, complete with the top hat and curly locks, for Heidi Klum's Halloween bash in 2011. (Photo: D Dipasupil/FilmMagic)

Kate Moss

The model threw on her best varsity jacket and stuck out her tongue as a tribute to another British beauty who spends a lot of time in front of the camera, Cara Delevingne. (Photo: David M. Benett/Getty Images)

Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan

Ripa and Strahan were known for making multiple costume changes on their annual Halloween episode of Live With Kelly and Michael. One of their 2013 looks was Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke from — you guessed it — the 2013 MTV VMAs. (Photo: Paul Zimmerman/WireImage)

Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan

In 2015, the former duo parodied Katy Perry and her left shark from that year's Super Bowl halftime show. Are you singing "California Gurls" yet? (Photo: Raymond Hall/GC Images)

Mario Lopez

Thank you, thank you very much, Mario Lopez, for sharing this adorable photo of yourself and son Dominic dressed as Elvis Presley last Halloween. (Photo: Instagram)

Carmen Electra

Another Katy Perry, "California Gurls" style! In 2014, Electra nailed the whimsical costume that Perry wore in her video for the hit song. (Photo: Michael Simon/startraksphoto.com)

Meredith Vieira

The Today show hosts are famous for going all out on the spookiest day of the year. Vieira, for example, was once the picture of Lady Gaga. (Photo: Peter Kramer/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images)

The hosts of ‘Today’

In one of the show's best group costumes ever, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker, Natalie Morales, Ann Curry, and Matt Lauer cheekily portrayed the royal family at Will and Kate's 2011 wedding. (Photo: Peter Kramer/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images)

Jessica Alba

Slash inspired the actress and Honest Co. founder to put on a wild wig and the rocker's signature top hat for Kate Hudson's annual Halloween bash in 2014. Her pal Kelly Sawyer accompanied her as Axl Rose. (Photo: Instagram)

Lance Bass

In 2014, Bass poked fun at his own boy-band past. With the ripped denim, gelled hair, and the pointing fingers — he was right on! (Photo: Instagram)
