Celebrity Halloween Costumes 2022: So Much Money, So Little Imagination

Stars went as themselves, as other hot people, or as characters with extremely elaborate costumes that require nothing but deep pockets to pull off.

Monday was Halloween, which means we just wrapped up four days of celebs flaunting their deep pockets by choosing over-the-top costumes that could only be executed by people with a lot of money and not a lot of imagination.

They trotted out their costumes all over Los Angeles and our Instagram feeds. George Clooney’s tequila threw a huge Halloween party on Friday night, though he did not appear to be there—but Paris Hilton, Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow, and Chrishell Stause were. Kim Kardashian showed up as X-Men’s Mystique to Tracee Ellis Ross’s 50th birthday party—which was not a costume party. A bunch of other celebrities appeared to dress up simply to conduct bizarrely intricate photoshoots in the privacy of their own homes. And, after a two-year covid hiatus, Heidi Klum threw her infamous Halloween party Monday night dressed as a goddamn worm.

Personally, I think celebs should use Halloween to get crafty and weird like the rest of us. How would they approach costumes if they had a college student’s budget, a 60-hour work week plus commuting, or a cosmetics bag stocked only with drugstore basics?

We’ve rounded up some of their most eye-popping costumes—many of which just reminded us that money can buy a lot, but it can’t buy creativity.
