18 celebrities who dressed up as other celebrities for Halloween

Whether it's spooky season veterans like Heidi Klum making her costumes gorier every year or the Kardashians putting a ghoulishly sexy spin on creepy classics, celebrities are always one to go big on Halloween.

While we rely on the stars for some major terrifying inspiration for the big day, they also happen to turn to each for some creativity for their costumes. Over the last few years, there has been a surge of celebrities dressed up as other celebrities for Halloween - and while the results may not exactly be scary (we'll let that slide), we're still obsessed with their attention to detail.

I mean, back in 2016, Kylie Jenner definitely had us doing a double-take when she dressed up as Christina Aguilera in her leather chaps and black-streaked blonde hair from her Dirrty era. We were also impressed with Rita Ora's efforts in channelling rapper Post Malone, and Kate Moss nailed Cara Delevingne's party-girl look. Obsessed!

And that's not it - the likes of Elton John, Billie Eilish, and Lil' Kim have provided inspiration for other stars when it comes to dressing up, not to mention pop star icons Britney Spears, Michael Jackson and Katy Perry. Even the Royal Family have become muses for some celebrities. So join us as we look back at the best 18 celebrities dressed up as other celebrities for Halloween.

Paris Hilton as Britney Spears

Paris Hilton was a spitting image of Britney Spears in her “Toxic” music video air-hostess costume for Halloween 2023. She wrote on her Instagram, “Icons supporting icons.”

Kendall Jenner as Marilyn Monroe

In 2023, Kendall Jenner seemed to take on her sister Kim’s Marilyn Monroe Met Gala moment opting for a simple version of the Hollywood idol.

Paris Hilton as Katy Perry

Paris Hilton opted for another 2023 Halloween costume, this time replicating an iconic red latex look worn by Katy Perry in Las Vegas earlier this year.

Hailey Bieber as Britney Spears

In 2021, Hailey Bieber channelled her favourite pop queen, Britney Spears for Halloween. In pigtails and a school uniform, Bieber looked like a double for Spears in the 1998 “Baby One More Time” music video.

Winnie Harlow as Michael Jackson

For Halloween 2022, Winnie Harlow dressed up as the “legendary king of pop” writing on her Instagram, “Love you forever Michael.” Looking every inch like MJ, Winnie donned a long-sleeved gold top with a high collar which she paired with black trousers.

Kim Kardashian as Anna Wintour and North West as André Leon Talley

In 2014, Kim Kardashian dressed up as Vogue's editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, in a tweed ensemble and Wintour's signature bob and sunglasses, while her daughter North was Vogue's former editor-at-large, the late André Leon Talley. Kim's friend Joyce Bonelli and her son Zeplin also teamed as as Vogue's former creative director Grace Coddington and late Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld.

Chrissy Teigen as The Queen and John Legend as The Duke of Edinburgh

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend decided to mimic the late Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh for Halloween 2018 in their royals-themed costume troop.

Adele as Dolly Parton

Adele dressed up as her country music heroine, Dolly Parton, in 2018, donning her signature large blonde wig, heavy blue eyeshadow and pink suit, with an acoustic guitar to boot.

Margot Robbie as Ginger Spice

Who didn't love the Spice Girls when they were younger? Margot Robbie was undoubtedly a big fan, and she proved so by taking us back to the nineties by dressing up as Ginger Spice in her iconic Union Jack dress.

Kendall Jenner as Pamela Anderson

Kendall Jenner looked terrific as she dressed up Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson's character in the 1996 flick Barb Wire for her 25th birthday (which is just a few days after Halloween).

Lil Nas X as Nicki Minaj

With all her fun and quirky outfits, Nicki Minaj definitely lends herself as a fun celebrity to imitate, and Lil Naz X channelled the rapper in a bright purple bodysuit, two-toned wigs and fake boobs while mimicking her Super Bass video.

Saweetie as Destiny’s Child

In 2020, American rapper and former GLAMOUR cover star Saweetie delighted fans as she channelled all three members of Destiny's Child from one of their iconic album covers.

Nicola Peltz as Donatella Versace

Nicola Peltz has been flaunting her style credentials this year - especially with her opulent wedding to Brooklyn Beckham. But her love for fashion started two years earlier when she channelled iconic fashion designer Donatella Versace.

Ciara & Russell Wilson as Beyoncé & Jay-Z

We love it when a power couple channels another power couple - and that's exactly what Ciara and Russell Wilson did as they transformed into music superstars Beyoncé & Jay-Z.

Kylie Jenner as Christina Aguilera

Kylie Jenner had social media in a frenzy when she channelled Christina Aguilera from her Dirrty music video. She looked so much like the Genie In A Bottle singer that we were left wondering if that really was Kylie behind the long black-streaker hair and smoky eyeshadow!

Stormi Webster as Kylie Jenner

Like mother, like daughter! Stormi Webster couldn't have looked cuter as she wore an adorable mini-me version of her mother Kylie Jenner's purple Met Gala gown and matching wig in 2019.

Miley Cyrus as Lil’ Kim

Who remembers Lil Kim's iconic 1999 VMAs look, which consisted of a one-armed purple bodysuit, and left very little to the imagination? Well, Miley Cyrus took it as perfect Halloween inspiration back in 2013!

Harper Beckham as Billie Eilish

Ahh, another Billie Eilish costume (let's face it, the singer is a popular one when it comes to Halloween). But the fact that it's Victoria and David Beckham's daughter Harper who's imitating her is seriously cute! She's got the green hair and black tear streaks and everything!
