It’s the spookiest time of the year again! While Halloween officially falls on a Monday in 2022, much of the public observed the holiday throughout the weekend. With celebrities already breaking into their fun little costumes on our FYPs, it’s safe to say that the trick-or-treating season came early this year. So, if you’re a last-minute hauler still actively looking for inspiration, listen up. Like every Halloween, all spooky eyes are on A-listers once again for their spotless renditions of jaw-dropping looks.

While 2020 was all about hand sanitiser bikinis, banana bread dresses, and lazy Zoom call drips, 2022 has already witnessed its fair share of criticisms—including the ban of Jeffrey Dahmer costumes on eBay. Over the Halloweekend, vampire couple Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly (MGK) were also slammed for “glorifying a toxic relationship” by dressing up as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee for a party hosted by Casamigos at a private residence in Beverly Hills.

In the same vein, Kendall Jenner’s NSFW version of cowgirl Jessie from Pixar’s Toy Story has further garnered backlash from enthusiasts for “ruining” the children’s franchise altogether.

That being said, several Halloween fits sported by public figures have already gripped hearts across the internet—with some netizens currently en route to DIY-ing their own takes on the costumes as we speak. From Paris Hilton evoking Sailor Moon to Lizzo channelling her inner Marge Simpson, here are 12 of the best celebrity Halloween costumes to grace our creative timelines in 2022.

9. Kim Kardashian as Mystique

Note to self: Never ask Kardashian how she manages to pee in her outfits. Although several Twitter users compared the reality TV star to Saweetie and even Amber Heard for some wild reason, it’s safe to say that this look might just go down in the Kardashian history book.
