In this edition of a just-invented segment called Scandal Sheet, we look at a selected few celebrity Halloween costumes, from both Halloweekends (Halloween falling on a Thursday is confusing, guys)! Click any picture to start the slideshow.
Mindy Kaling is delightful. So is Jimmy Kimmel. I know that Disney does own ABC, Kimmel’s parent network, but I’m still liking their gender-bent Disney pride.
Speaking of delightful – Ellen as Nicki Minaj. Could the fake underboob cleavage be better? Could the wig look appropriately weirder? Is there anyone else I would want to wear this costume? All answers are no. (I also wonder who MAKES fake underboob cleavage. It’s like the dirty, hilarious version of those fake abs in little boy’s superhero costumes.)
I miss Georgina Sparks. She would probably go as Cruella DeVille or Lizzie Borden or something, but Michelle Trachtenberg is working this. Nice details, too.
Lance Bass is cool again?! No way! WAY!
WHAT ARE THOSE BOOTS. Does she own those in real life? Did she cut off the Abominable Snowman’s feet?
I don’t really know if this is a specific reference or just a super-hot nun smoking a cigarette. Whatever. Still looks cool.
Somehow, even dressed as one of the most controversial figures of the year in one of the most controversial outfits of the year, Paris Hilton still manages to bore me to tears.
On the other hand… no. No forever.
This is actually working for me. Kelly Ripa is really cute and is one of the only women her age who can pull off a Halloween unitard, even the infamous teddy bear one. Michael Strahan has a good sleazy Robin Thicke vibe, too.
And, moving right along from fake Mileys to real Mileys. I’m surprised by how much I like this. It’s actually kind of awesome. It’s such a dead-on Lil Kim at the VMAs that I have to love the dedication.
I don’t know or understand what is happening here. Maybe he has mercury poisoning again.
This has been pretty much covered by the rest of the Interwebs. It’s pretty gross. Slapping on a ton of bronzer for blackface is a no. Just go as white Crazy Eyes. This is the wrong way to do this, Halloween, and maybe everything.
Here’s a nice palate cleanser. Beyonce as an angel isn’t terribly original, but she literally is an angel sent from heaven, so, sure.
This is only part 1 because this family is perfect.
They just got more perfect. Their makeup artists are amazing.
This is pretty cute even though I don’t know how Elvira and Riff Raff would ever logistically meet, but they’d definitely hit it off if they did.
This is an unbelievably unflattering picture of Jennifer Morrison, who went as Cher Horowitz, albeit not in the signature yellow plaid skirt set, so I have mixed feelings.
Heidi Klum is always so over the top, in an incredibly fun way. I didn’t know “old age” was a legitimate Halloween costume, but it’s pretty great.
I am dead. I am dead from joy.
