Halloween homage: 22 Times famous people dressed up as other celebrities for the spooky season

It’s a funny feeling watching celebrities encounter each other. Separate universes collide for a viral moment on Twitter and Instagram. It takes a few seconds for the brain to register all the visual stimuli at once before prompting a meme thread on Reddit. The news of Stranger Things’ David Harbour and Lily Allen being romantically linked sparked interest among pop culture fanatics, and let’s not forget the Oscars selfie from 2014, which brought Ellen Degeneres, Meryl Streep, Channing Tatum, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, and Lupita Nyong’o (and more!) in a single frame. Closer to home, Cardi B and our Malaysian songstress Yuna catching up at the Chanel Spring/Summer 2020 show was a definite highlight.

The breaking of the fourth wall reaches a new level when celebs start dressing up as other celebs for Halloween. Famous people have celebrity crushes, too. Celebs, are they just like us? Some costumes are done respectfully as an homage, and others are playfully wicked and tongue-in-cheek for the Halloween season. Our favourites are the witty ones like Nicky Hilton dressing up as her sister Paris in a sparkly cowl neck minidress accompanied by a matching choker and tiara. Not to mention last year’s masterpiece, where Lil Nas X dressed as Ice Spice, even making the original songstress approve of his costume.
