Here are our favorite head-to-toe transformations.
Halloween may fall on a Monday this year, but that just means there are more days to get into the spooky spirit. Our favorite celebs started the festivities early, kicking off the Halloweekend with several spotless renditions of jaw-dropping looks.
From Kylie Jenner posing in a couture gown as the Bride of Frankenstein, to Lizzo donning full yellow body paint as Marge Simpson, to Janelle Monáe transforming into a diva alien from The Fifth Element, 2022 has been the year for showing off major creativity and attention to detail.
See our favorite celebrity costumes below.
The SKIMS founder went the superhero route, transforming into the X-Men character Mystique.
The Kylie Cosmetics founder wore three stellar looks. She first paid homage to the 1935 film The Bride of Frankenstein in several looks, including a custom Jean Paul Gaultier gown by Glenn Martens.
For her second costume of the weekend, she was a sexy Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
And for her third costume, the makeup mogul looked out of this world as a space girl.
Later on Monday, Jenner shared a sweet family photo on her Instagram Story of her, boyfriend Travis Scott, and their daughter, Stormi, wearing matching angel looks.
The model channeled Laetitia Casta’s iconic rose wedding dress, which Casta wore at Yves Saint Laurent’s haute couture runway show in 1999.
Later, she transformed into a Versace vampire, wearing a sultry all-black ensemble—a bra top, miniskirt, opera gloves, garter, and gold chain belt spelling out the Italian brand’s name. She was spotted out with husband Justin Bieber, who embodied the Cookie Monster in a cozy blue onesie.
The supermodel has been booked and busy in Qatar this Halloween, so she took the symbolic route as a "walking heart" for the holiday, looking stunning in a red gown, courtesy of Italian designer Schiaparelli.
The queen of Halloween is back with another bizarre, over-the-top look. This year for her costume, the model dressed up as a slimy pink worm, and husband Tom Kaulitz as the creepy fisherman who caught her.
She attended her annual lavish Halloween bash—Heidi Klum’s Hallowe’en Party at Sake No Hana—in the fit, and later stripped off her worm attire (but kept the face), revealing a sultry silver and sheer lingerie jumpsuit.
Heidi Klum’s teen daughter, Leni Klum, went the more traditional route with her costume, dressing up as Catwoman in full leather catsuit, mask with ears, and heeled boots. At the party, she posed on the carpet for a hilarious photo with her mom.
The singer and actor pulled off a stunning full-body transformation into Diva Plavalaguna, the alien singer from The Fifth Element.
The "About Damn Time" singer transformed into Marge Simpson, complete with full body paint and matching yellow nails.

Joe, meanwhile, went all out as Flo from Progressive—bright red lipstick and all.
The singer and her five-year-old, Sienna, re-created Serena and Venus Williams’s 2000 "Got Milk?" campaign, complete with white milk mustaches.
The reality star first dressed as her "childhood icon," Sailor Moon. Later, she channeled a sultry FBI agent via an all-black look consisting of a cropped jacket, mini skirt, and thigh-high heeled boots.
The singer lived out her dreams of becoming an Avatar character with a convincing head-to-toe blue humanoid look coordinated alongside that of artist boyfriend DDG.
The "For the Night" singer made an electrifying Storm.
Weeks after she responded to fans who wanted her to play Rapunzel, the Nope actress made a stunning princess in extra-long box braids.
