Wednesday is kind of a lame night for Halloween, so celebs and us regular folks have been celebrating since the weekend! But yesterday marked the final costumed hurrah, where Hollywood A-listers got their last chance to venture out in bizarre costumes, before it’s officially considered weird again. Kim Kardashian showed up to her Halloween party at Miami’s Fontainebleau in a skin tight Cat Woman catsuit, while boyfriend Kanye West donned a Batman outfit (natch), making them 2-0 with the hilarious couples costumes. Batman and his crew were a pretty popular choice this year. Kim’s sister Kourtney went as the Dark Knight alongside Scott Disick, who battled it out with Paris Hilton for the title of the Sexiest Robin. At first we thought Basketball Wives star Gloria Govan ALSO went as the great caped one, but it turned out to be a cat burglar. Our bad.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson took things down a slightly creepier path (also natch), donning what appear to be Groucho Marx masks to a party at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Or maybe it’s Ernie Kovacs. Whatever it is, it’s just plain scary! Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart cheered us up, going as geeks. And the Hulk made things super easy by going as…himself. But he’s had a rough few weeks, so we’ll forgive him. Check out more costume fun in the gallery below!
It was a big evening for Jenny McCarthy last night. Not only did she have Halloween to celebrate, but her final moments as a thirty-something as well! Yes, it’s hard to believe that the pin-up turns 40 years old today, but she didn’t let that slow her down as she stepped out at the Gallery Nightclub in Las Vegas to party hearty. Jenny showed off her super bod in a sizzling lingerie catsuit that served as a giant well deserved “F U” to aging.
The beautiful Ms. McCarthy got her start as 1993’s Playmate of the Year, but we were seven when that happened, which is a bit too young for Playboy. So she first caught our attention a few years later as the host of MTV’s classic 90’s dating game, Singled Out. Since then she’s gone on to appear in hilarious movies like BASEketball and The Stupids, and hit TV shows such as Home Improvement, My Name Is Earl, Just Shoot Me, Two And A Half Men and so many more. She did date Jim Carrey for a while, so her judgement isn’t totally flawless. But this isn’t a perfect world, is it?
On top of being a stunning model and a hilarious actress, Jenny has worked tirelessly for charity, and become an outspoken activist for finding better ways to treat autism. She’s written books, appeared in video games…is there anything she hasn’t done?! And Hugh Hefner asked her to pose nude once again for Playboy in July, which just proves that she hasn’t lost any of her sex appeal over the last two decades. In fact, she’s gotten even better! We anxiously await her return to the airwaves with her new VH1 talkshow next year. So in honor of the multi-talented Jenny hitting the big 4-0, we’ve decided to take a look back at her 25 sexiest out fits of all time. Enjoy!
We are really beginning to wonder about Chris Brown. That is, wonder whether medical researchers are looking into what it is about certain people who seem to be completely missing the filter that says, “You may find this funny/acceptable/cool, but you will actually make yourself look like the worst human being, so don’t do it.” The latest evidence of CB’s missing filter is the above Instagram, which he posted yesterday with the caption: “Ain’t nobody F—ing wit my clique!!!!#ohb.”
Best case scenario, they were simply dressed as “nomads,” crossing the line of political correctness by using an ethnicity as a costume. (And that tattoo really was just supposed to be a Day of the Dead mask, too, right?) Worst, they are dressed as terrorists and making a statement about their attitude toward the rest of the world. Probably something in between. Like Breezy genuinely thought this would be funny. And again, turned out to be horribly, horribly mistaken. Oh, and did we mention he posted this on his way to Rihanna’s Halloween party?
Here are some other celebrities’ whose costumes in recent years didn’t come across quite as they’d intended:
We love sexy orthodontists and zombie Paul Ryans as much as the best person, but the best kind of costume would have to be the kid costume. Lady bugs, teddy bears, pumpkins, more teddy bears: there is nothing more adorable then a screaming, candy-filled kid on Halloween (provided, of course, they are not our kid.) Luckily, celebrities seem agree and have taken the Tums and migraine medication necessary to take their offspring out on the town in costume for us to squee over. They’re all super cute, but between Monroe and Moroccan Cannon and Honor Warren, we think we found the ten definitive cutest. Really. They’re like the Avengers of cute kid Halloween photos.
Okay, best family Halloween portrait ever? We don’t know who Jessica Simpson is dressed as but we’re wowed by how she looks in her leather corset, lace skirt and pigtails. Hello cleavage and hello humongous weight loss. Major props to fiance Eric Johnson‘s as well for his plaid Braveheart costume complete with the mullet. But the star of this picture is little Maxwell Drew, who we are fixated by in her feathered chicken outfit. It’s just … brain explodingly awesome. J. Simp tweeted the image out twice just hours ago, with the first link reading, “Happy Halloween!!!” and the second saying, “Trick or Treat?” Both tweets led to the photograph on her website. The singer seems to be really committed to her Halloween costumes. Remember last year’s big pregnancy reveal? It happened while Jessica was dressed up as a Mummy. Geddit? A mummy? It’s the photograph on the right, to refresh your memory! We’d really like to put this photo in our list of scarily sexy twitpics but can’t for two reasons: 1. It’s not scary even though she looks sexy, and 2. Could anything be scary when a picture with Maxwell dressed as a fluffy chicken is involved?
Everyone was worried about how Hurricane Sandy would affect Halloween trick-or-treating for small children, but did anyone give a thought to poor Heidi Klum, who looks forward to her epic Halloween blow out every year? Well we did, and we’re sad to report that the super storm has forced the super model to cancel her annual party this year. She issued a statement yesterday in which she explained this Great Pumpkin-sized bummer.
“I hope you and your loved ones are safe after this devastating storm in the New York City area,” she says. “For obvious reasons, I am canceling my Halloween party scheduled for tomorrow night. I hope to postpone for the near future… maybe a very Haunted Christmas? I hope everyone understands and stays safe.” Awww, we’re so sorry, Heidi. We know how pumped she gets for these shindigs, featuring her insanely elaborate costumes. She already gave us a sneak peak of this year’s edition: A golden Cleopatra. We guess we’ll have to wait for a “Haunted Christmas” to see it. Luckily we have a gallery of her past costumes to tide you over until then. Check it out!
As a young kid, there’s no dream like qualifying for the Olympics. Whether you grew up admiring Kerri Strug, Mia Hamm or Michael Phelps, you’ve probably pictured yourself on that podium, waving your hand proudly in the air to fans as the National Anthem blares around you. Well, not many of us become professional athletes, but Halloween is that time where we can fulfill that little fantasy of ours. And because the 2012 women’s gymnastics team is AWESOME, here’s how you can become an honorary member of the Fierce Five and take home the gold this Halloween! (And if you can rope in four other friends to join you, even better.)
1. Buy a plain red leotard online at a discount dance supply store ($18.05)
2. Dot the red leotard with Lumiere Dimensional Metallic Paint & Adhesive from an art supply store ($1.99)
While we understand the decision, we were sorely disappointed this morning to learn that the Today show had canceled their tradition of having all their hosts dress up as other famous folks for Halloween. That on top of the fact that New York’s annual Village Halloween Parade has, um, dampened our already soggy spirits. So, thank you, Ellen DeGeneres, for brightening up our day with your Sofia Vergaracostume and terrible, terrible Colombian accent.
Candy and punch-based drunkenness aside, the best part of Halloween has to be the celebrity costume. First of all, it tricks the lost souls that roam the earth on All Hollow’s Eve into thinking you’re Ryan Gosling from Drive. Second of all, it helps pay homage to celebrities, a group of people who entertain us all year long with their movies, their nip slips and their mug shots. So why should other celebrities have to miss out on that joy, forever forced to be a sexy witch or a sexy cat or a sexy key grip? As long as they don’t happen to be going to the same shindig, we think it’s more than okay for famous people to go as other famous people. If Deryck Whibley can go as ex-wife Avril Lavgine, we say everything is game. Read more…
OK, so we all know by now that Amanda Bynes isn’t having the best year. Between her DUI drama and her recent dressing room shenanigans in the media, she’s looking more and more like her hot mess celeb-peer Lindsey Lohan. With so much weirdness going on in the star’s life, it’s hard to choose which strange happening to pay tribute to. After a lot of thought, we decided to go with the extra weird pipe smoking, Baja Fresh eating Home Depot shopping escapade she went on in L.A. a few weeks back. We still haven’t figured that one out. There are so many unanswered questions about her activities. And it’ll be a great Halloween party conversation starter if you dress as her! It’s easy, all you need is a few props!
1. Oak tag for a makeshift steering wheel ($1.50 at Walgreens)
