While millions of Americans will be dressing up today the most impressive, and expensive, costumes are often found adorning some famous faces.
Here’s our run-down of some of the best celebrity Halloween costumes of 2021…
Lizzo – Baby Yoda
Last year singer song-writer Lizzo stole the show on Halloween, dressing as the infamous fly that landed atop Vice President Mike Pence’s head during last October’s presidential debate. The 33-year-old has gone for another viral sensation this year with an impressively realistic Baby Yoda outfit, channelling the star of the Disney+ series The Mandalorian.
Harry Styles – Dorothy
The former star of One Direction has taken a detour down the yellow brick road for this year’s Halloween costume, copying the gingham drew and ponytails of Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. Styles has donned a dress in public numerous times in recent years and looked at home in the ensemble at one of his gigs.
Lil Nas X – The Basketball Guy, aka Seth Powers
Never one to shy away from the opportunity to rock some ‘out-there’ clothing choices, Lil Nas X’s Halloween looks are often notable. However this year he sent for a relatively paired-back outfit, going as The Basketball Guy, aka Seth Powers, from Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide, the early 2000s Nickelodeon show.
Hayley Bieber – Britney Spears
Another to go for a topical costume was Hayley Bieber, who said her outfit was inspired by “the queen,” Britney Spears. Posting a series of photos to her Instagram, Bieber shows off a variety of Britney-inspired looks, just weeks after the pop star was in the news as details of her conservatorship emerged in the public consciousness.
LeBron James – Freddy Krueger
The NBA icon steps away from the family-friendly persona of Space Jam 2 to bring a bit of horror to Halloween. The 36-year-old dressed up as a frightfully realistic version of Freddy Kruger, the relentless killer from Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street film series.
