21. Elle Woods



A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on Oct 31, 2019 at 10:24am PDT

Is there any more iconic character to dress as for Halloween? Kim Kardashian absolutely nailed her Elle Woods costume last year, complete with a reenactment of Elle Woods’ Harvard submission video. While Kim K. opted for Elle’s signature sparkly pink bikini, you actually have a ton of costume options if you don’t want to prance around in a bikini all night. Just grab your brightest pink dress, a blonde wig, and a stuffed Chihuahua, and viola! Elle Woods, reporting for duty.


22. The Rock Circa 1990



A post shared by Kevin Hart (@kevinhart4real) on Oct 30, 2019 at 7:37pm PDT

Let’s face it: this picture of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the best pictures that exists in the history of photography. Not only is it a hilarious ode to the disastrous fashion era that was the ‘90s, it’s incredibly easy to recreate! All you need is some high-waisted mom jeans, a black turtleneck, and a seriously chunky chain to accentuate your covered-up neck. Bonus: the black leather fanny pack means a hands-free Halloween, and you won’t have to worry about where you set your bag down. Win/win.

23. DNA Test



A post shared by Lizzo (@lizzobeeating) on Oct 31, 2019 at 10:06pm PDT

Fact: Lizzo is the greatest. The “Truth Hurts” rapper dressed as a DNA test last year as an ode to her famous lyrics, “I just took a DNA test/ Turns out I’m 100% that b****,” and totally crushed the Halloween costume game! To recreate this costume, all you need is poster board, glitter, a glue stick, and sequin-esque streamers, all of which you can find at your local craft store or online.


24. Audrey Hepburn



A post shared by Kate Beckinsale (@katebeckinsale) on Oct 26, 2019 at 12:54am PDT

In fact, you may have most of the pieces for this costume in your closet already! Throw on a curve-hugging black dress, your highest heels (or flats -- whatever you’re most comfortable in!), a black floppy hat, and a stack of pearl necklaces, and bam! You’ve just become Audrey Hepburn.

25. East Compton Clovers Cheerleader



A post shared by Gabrielle Union-Wade (@gabunion) on Oct 27, 2019 at 1:50pm PDT

Bring It On is one of the most iconic cheerleading movies of all time, and the star of the hit 2000 film, Gabrielle Union, dressed up as an East Compton Clover cheerleader for Halloween last year. Her adorable daughter, Kaavia, was totally twinning with her, too! If you were a cheerleader in high school or college, Halloween is the perfect time to dress up as your former self. Throw on your old uniform and call it a day, or order a replica of the East Compton Clovers uniform on Amazon — just be sure to practice your routine!
