Whew, what a wild (and long) Halloween ride. Celebrities have been giving us costume inspo in spades for more than a week now, and now that it’s November, we have to look back on all the best transformations. And look: Yes, Heidi Klum may be the unofficial queen of costumes every year, but we’d say she got some serious competition this time around. (We’re looking at you, Halsey and Demi Lovato. You too, Nina Dobrev. We see your effort.)

The best celebrity Halloween costumes this year included stars dressing up as other stars they love, mother-daughter twinning costumes that are, frankly, too cute for words, and couples’ costumes that aren’t too sappy to wear to your friend’s party. (Please, immediately scroll down to Ciara and Russell Wilson.)

Scroll through to see our favorite celebrity Halloween costumes that we might just steal for our looks next year.

She’s not bad; she’s just drawn that way. Ashley Graham absolutely slayed as Jessica Rabbit. The makeup? The gloves? It was all perfect.

Um, we can’t handle how cute this is. Stormi dressed up as her mom, Kylie Jenner, in monochrome lavender at the Met Gala. These two love to twin, and we love it every time.

Of course, no Kardashian or Jenner is done after just one Halloween costume. Kylie paid homage to her Playboy shoot in her second costume of the week.

Kylie Jenner as Ariel

For Kylie, there was never going to be just one or two (or three…?) Halloween costumes. One question: Where do we get that Flounder purse?

Okay, there was a legit double-take at Halsey’s transformation into Marilyn Manson. And it’s not the singer’s only Halloween costume so far this year…

Nevermind, maybe we aren’t inviting Lovato to our party because this It costume is legit scary.

Nina Dobrev as the Chanel runway-crasher

“They said I couldn’t pull off the impossible, but look at me now! The most prestigious catwalk in the world,” Dobrev captioned her post. She even tagged Gigi Hadid, who famously escorted the crasher off the runway. Iconic.

It seems the “Bad Guy” singer is a trendy Halloween costume for 2019. Jameela Jamil rocked what she calls a “Silly Eilish” costume.

Jessica Biel as Justin Timberlake

Excuse us, but suddenly we’re transported back to taping posters of this exact Justin Timberlake-in-bleached-curls look on all over our middle school bedroom. After Biel said she didn’t know any NSYNC songs, she made it up to her husband by throwing back to his boy band days.

Paris Hilton as She-Ra

How do we get an invite for Hilton’s star-studded Halloween bash? Next year?

Beckinsale is just like all of us dressing up as Holly Golightly so we can just wear our LBD to the costume party.

Heidi Klum has had a long reign as Queen of Halloween with her epic costumes, and her first one of 2019 looks like an excuse to douse yourself in glitter.
