When you have the resources, teams and cash that celebrities do, there’s no real excuse to have a bad Halloween costume. As a result, tons of the rich and famous wind up with amazing getups for this most wonderful of holidays. Here’s a rundown of the best (and worst) of 2013′s celebrity Halloween costumes!
Let’s start off with somebody who did it right: Neil Patrick Harris. His family’s Halloween costumes were amazing and oh-so-adorable.
Obviously, Heidi Klum killed it.
Kelly Osbourne pulled off the Carrie look.
Art Moore, Kelly Ripa, Michael Strahan and Michael Gelman went for the Miley Cyrus/Robin Thicke costume brigade and actually pulled it off really well.
Ripa’s New York City 40th Annual Village Halloween parade costume was considerably tamer.
Ellen Degeneres went as Nicki Minaj a la Minaj’s recent un-bra’d appearance on her show, once again proving you absolutely do not need to wear blackface to go as a black celebrity for Halloween.
We still love Miley Cyrus‘ awesome Lil Kim costume.
David Arquette decided to show up as all your childhood nightmares.
Mindy Kaling pulled off an awesome Captain Hook for Jimmy Kimmel Live.
While Jimmy Kimmel pulled off an excellent Snow White, somehow.
Now, for a creepier version of Miley’s VMAs costume…
