Halloween is the ultimate occasion to really let your creative juices flow, whether that’s donning a costume that’s completely over-the-top or tastefully curated — at least, that’s the conclusion we came to this Halloween, where it seems that everyone from John Legend to Kendall Jenner really got into the spirit of the holiday by coming up with looks that were as clever as they were impressive.
This year, it was clear that the stars came dressed to impress for fall’s biggest night out — and many of them did it while channeling other famous faces. Gabrielle Union sported plaid and a blonde wig as Gwen Stefani during her No Doubt days, Rita Ora dressed up as Post Malone, down to his trademark face tatts, and Harry Styles really went all out in a bedazzled Gucci ensemble to transform into glam rock icon Elton John.
