The Absolute Best Celebrity Costumes From Halloween 2021

This year’s most impressive Halloween costumes included looks worn by Doja Cat, Ciara, Lil Nas X, Lebron James, Latto, and more.

Halloween came and went quickly this year. As usual, celebrities pulled out all the stops to present their take on some of pop culture’s biggest figures. 

For Spooky Season this year, celebrities including singers, rappers, and athletes also relied on the aesthetics of larger-than-life characters or entertainers as a guiding light. Once again stylists, makeup teams, and those who make up glam squads were called upon to serve up unforgettable looks. For example, Lil Nas X transformed into Voldemort, the likeness was terrifying. Ciara who never disappoints took on all members in TLC while Rihanna cosplayed as Gunna in his Rick Owens high-top sneakers which was a hilarious take on Halloween.

Anderson .Paak dropped an ultra-cool Stevie Wonder Hotter Than July costume that clearly was well thought out, then there was Janelle Monae who was an unhinged Grinch. We were also really impressed by Cardi B’s Morticia Adams look, Doja Cat‘s Miss Bellum, Latto’s recreation of Faith Evans’ appearance on the cover of VIBE years ago, and Lizzo who took on Baby Yoda.
