The model transformed into a wall and a bedsheet in a mini horror movie starring her husband, Tom Kaulitz, and her four children Leni, Henry, Johan and Lou. “Halloween is different this year, but that shouldn’t stop us from getting creative at home. Be safe, be spooky, and spend time with family,” the supermodel captioned an Instagram post on October 31, 2020.

Chrissy Teigen

The model and cooking enthusiast hilariously channeled Food Network host Guy Fieri in 2015 by wearing his signature platinum hair, goatee, sunglasses and flame-themed button-down.

Ellen DeGeneres

The talk-show host was so amused by Nicki Minaj’s revealing outfit during a September 2013 appearance on her show that she decided to wear an exaggerated version of the musician as a Halloween costume the same year. “This year I decided to go as something really scary … half-naked,” DeGeneres joked at the time. “Of course, I’m Nicki Minaj. Nicki was on the show a few weeks ago and her shirt was not … she took our show from PG to double D, that’s what she did!”

Heidi Klum

The model was unrecognizable as an old woman in 2013, wearing ultra-realistic age spots on her body and raised varicose veins running up her legs. To complete the look, Klum donned a white wig.

Julianne Hough

Hough apologized after receiving backlash for wearing blackface as part of her 2013 costume: Orange Is the New Black’s Crazy Eyes (played by Uzo Aduba).  “I am a huge fan of the show Orange Is the New Black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created,” she said in her apology at the time. “It certainly was never my intention to be disrespectful or demeaning to anyone in any way. I realize my costume hurt and offended people and I truly apologize.”



Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel and Silas

The couple and their then-18-month-old son went as characters from Timberlake’s animated film Trolls in 2016. “When you make your whole family dress up as the characters from the movie you’re in but your wife secretly loves it and your son won’t keep his troll wig on,” the singer joked in an Instagram post. “Shoutout to @jessicabiel #2BranchsandaPoppy #Trolls #didIuseaholidayforselfpromo Happy Halloween, everybody!!!!”

Kylie Jenner

The reality star dressed up as “Dirrty”-era Christina Aguilera in 2016, donning a tiny black-and-yellow bikini top, thigh-high black boots and black-and-yellow pants that showed off a peek of her bum as a tribute. Aguilera complimented the look and invited Jenner to wear the costume two months later at the singer’s birthday party.
