Hollywood celebs in their Halloween best
Hollywood went all out for Halloween this year, and madcap results are always guaranteed. We rank the Top 10 celebrity costumes...
1. HEIDI KLUM AS JESSICA RABBIT
The German model-host is the reigning "Queen of Halloween" and her yearly bash is the place to be every time Oct 31 comes around.
From cartoon character Betty Boop in 2002 to a Transformer in 2010 and an ape in 2011, Klum has done it all.
She even came dressed - or undressed - as a skinless cadaver in 2011.
Just when we thought her costumes couldn't get more outrageous, she has outdone herself.
The 42-year-old mother of four turned up as Jessica Rabbit, the iconic animated bombshell from the 1988 comedy Who Framed Roger Rabbit, for this year's festivities - its 16th edition - complete with the character's signature red dress and purple gloves.
With swollen lips, fake eyelids and striking scarlet locks, Klum was unrecognisable.
Prosthetics were used in the making of her overly-exaggerated face and body.
It look 10 hours and an entire team from Mike Marino's Prosthetic Renaissance to get Klum ready.
She told Entertainment Tonight: "It always takes longer because then we have lunch, and then I mess up the lips or some of the prosthetics come off. Then we had to glue the dress on. We didn't know how much boobs to show or how high it should, how long it should be."
Klum had posted several photos of the body casting on Instagram three weeks ago, teasing fans about her highly-anticipated costume.
"I basically had to be (cast) head to toe because there will be lots of body parts," she said.
"The cast process took about four hours to do."
Klum also shared a behind-the-scenes look at her jaw-dropping transformation on Instagram, showing how she was slowly concealed by effects and makeup.
2. COLTON HAYNES AS URSULA FROM THE LITTLE MERMAID
From werewolf to evil Disney villain. the Teen Wolf hottie and US actor goes full-on drag, trading in his chiselled jawline and solid bod for a fat suit to transform into sea witch Ursula (left) at Matthew Morrison's annual Halloween bash.
3. JOSH DUHAMEL AND FERGIE AS KARL LAGERFELD AND CHOUPETTE
US singer Fergie and her US actor-husband Duhamel (above) paid tribute to Chanel's head designer and creative director Karl Lagerfeld as they hit the streets of Hollywood as Lagerfeld and his beloved pet cat, Choupette. The couple both donned white wigs, hers a cute bob topped with matching cat ears and his, tied into Lagerfeld's signature ponytail.
4. NEIL PATRICK HARRIS AND HIS FAMILY AS STAR WARS CHARACTERS
Every year, we look forward to seeing the US actor's clan's themed costumes for its cute factor.
Harris turned into Obi-Wan Kenobi and his husband David Burtka, Han Solo.
Their fraternal twins Harper Grace and Gideon Scott, both five, portrayed the Star Wars twins Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker.
5. DWAYNE JOHNSON AS POPEYE
Who better to be the spinach-boosted cartoon sailor than Hollywood muscleman Johnson? No one else has the bulk to match the likes of Popeye.
6. GIGI HADID AS SANDY FROM GREASE
The US model rocks with her black outfit of leather and spandex, channelling Olivia Newton-John's goody-two-shoes heroine-turned-bad girl in the classic 1978 musical rom-com Grease.
7. ASHANTI AS SMURFETTE
"Hip Hop Smurfette" is what the US singer labelled her costume in an Instagram post on Halloween. Wearing a chunky gold chain and huge gold hoops, she's still very much the hip hop diva - this time just painted blue.
8. EMILY RATAJKOWSKI AS MARGE SIMPSON
The US model-actress, best known for going nude in Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines music video, took the cartoon route and went against type as the matronly matriarch from The Simpsons, complete with blue hair as high as can be.
9. ELLEN DEGENERES AS KARLA KARDASHIAN
The US talk show host revealed her tacky Jersey Shore-esque costume on her The Ellen DeGeneres Show and introduced herself as the youngest (fictional) Kardashian sister.
"I'm the lesser-known Kardashian sister, my name is Karla Kardashian with a K, we're known for our double K's. These are double K's too, by the way," DeGeneres joked, referring to the cup size of her prosthetic boobs.
She even screened a clip where she had edited herself into a Keeping Up With The Kardashians promotional video.
10. KIM KARDASHIAN AS KIM KARDASHIAN
When you're Kim Kardashian, you don't need to be anybody else. The US reality TV star - who's expecting her second baby and is in her third trimester - recycled the infamous Givenchy floral print "couch dress" she wore when she was heavily pregnant with firstborn North to 2013's Met Gala, which generated many Internet memes and jokes back then. At least she's the one having a laugh now, captioning the Instagram image with "Still fits...
