20 of Our Favorite Celebrity Halloween Costumes
It’s no secret that we’re gaga over All Hallow’s Eve. For many, this weekend will be all about costumed celebration, whether you’re rocking Gangnam Style or simply putting gummy worms in your punch. And the Hollywood glitterati are no exception. Here are 20 of our favorite celebrity Halloween costumes from the past few years.
1. Heidi Klum Bonanza: No Halloween costume roundup would be complete without a shout out to the mistress of costumed mischief, Heidi Klum.
2. Debra Messing Dias de Los Muertos: When in Halloween doubt, you can always go for the Dias de Los Muertos look. Messing pulls it off beautifully with a totally insane headpiece and wig.
3. Jessica Simpson as a Mummy: Loving this play on Simpson as a mommy-to-be!
6. Holly Robinson Peete as Lil Wayne: Speaking of uncomfortable, did you ever think that hottie from Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper could look this gangsta?
7. Christina Aguilera as a Corpse Bride: We think Beetlejuice pioneered the whole bridal zombie look, and Aguilera definitely does it justice here with her hubby.
9. Kathie Lee and Hoda as Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie: AMAZING. This was definitely our favorite meme from last year’s Royal Wedding.
11. AnnaLynne McCord as Marie Antoinette: Not sure if she’s officially dressed up as our favorite cake-lover, but she is pulling off the Antoinette look perfectly.
12. Gwen Stefani as Jessie from Toy Story: A yodeling cowgirl? We think Gwen can relate. Maybe?
13. Seal and Heidi Klum as Eve and the Apple: Love this one! Seal makes a particularly good Eve, don’t you think?
15. Katy Perry as her Nerdy Alter Ego: Gotta give those nerd years some credit. Bonus points for middle school-style giggles with Robert Pattinson.
16. Martha Stewart and Blake Lively as Medusa and Cleopatra: Such a good pairing. Lively makes a surprisingly good Cleopatra and Martha’s costumes are always major stunners.
17. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon as Milk and Cookies: Oh Mariah. Milk and Cookies is spot on.
18. Nicole Richie as J. Lo: Wait, is that not Jenny from the block??
19. Gwen Stefani as Cinderella: Gwen does it again with a kid-friendly vibe. Perhaps a favorite princess of Kingston?
20. Heidi Klum as Cleopatra: Finally, we have the reveal of Klum’s costume for this year. Cleoptatra! (Comin’ at ya!)
Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
