Hailey Bieber shared some sexy snaps on Instagram of her designer vampire costume. Fans were loving her bondage-style outfit covered in belts and chains.
“HAPPY HALLOWEEN. VERSACE VAMPIRE,” she captions her post on Instagram, showing off a closeup look at her spooky makeup and bold jewelry.
She wore a red lip with fake blood dripping down, adding bright purple eyeshadow and winged black liner.
For her costume, she sported a strappy Versace bra top with belted detail at the waist, adding a black Versace miniskirt with several belts, including a chain that spelled out “Versace” in gold letters.
3. Bella Hadid
The supermodel has been booked and busy in Qatar this Halloween, so she took the symbolic route as a; “walking heart” for the holiday, looking stunning in a red gown, courtesy of Italian designer Schiaparelli.

It’s Halloween and I’m in
MY E L E M E N T
THE DIVA P L A V A L A G U N A
The “Truth Hurts” singer transforms into Marge Simpson, complete with full body paint and matching yellow nails.
She got into the spooky spirit in a big way this weekend, sporting three incredibly creative costumes — including a pitch-perfect Marge Simpson look.
To fully embody the “Simpsons” matriarch, Lizzo painted her entire body yellow and wore the cartoon character’s signature sky-high blue hair with a green sequined dress, red beaded necklace and scarlet pumps.
“As if you could get more iconic,” one fan comments, while another calls her costume “Absolute perfection.”
6. Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelley
The couple dressed up as Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson and Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, specifically the couple’s looks from the 1995 grand opening party for the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

7. Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker
Mr. and Mrs. Barker dressed up as Chucky and the Bride of Chucky for their first Halloween as a married couple.
Kourtney Kardashian and husband Travis Barker dressed up as the notoriously evil duo, and Vogue has a closer look at what went into their custom couples costume.
Paying homage to Tiffany’s iconic bridal gown, motorcycle jacket, and combat boots, Kardashian wanted to get the movie character’s edgy fashion sense right. “Kourtney loves Halloween,” Dani Michelle, Kardashian’s stylist, tells Vogue. “We wanted to re-create the look to the best of our ability.”
To do so, Kardashian and Michelle had a custom-made gown by the bridal label Amsale; The late designer Amsale Aberra founded the brand back in 1985, and she was the first Black female designer to be accepted into the CFDA. Known for their simplicity, Amsale was the perfect brand to bring the sleek, strapless design to life. “It’s so fun to honor a character, and Amsale brought the dress to life so seamlessly,” says Michelle.
8. Lori Harvey
The model recreates Beyoncés looks from her 2003 “Me, Myself, and I” music video, one of the many chart-topping singles from the singer’s 2003 solo album Dangerously in Love. Harvey looks just like the star in her two posts, which put images and scenes from the video side-by-side with her own costumes.
For the first outfit, the SKN by Lori Harvey founder donned a honey blonde wig with blunt bangs as she posed in an off-the-shoulder bodycon dress. She also filmed the scene from the video, crawling around a black room with a pink settee and gold lamp in a perfect recreation.
Harvey captioned the pic with the first line from the single-woman anthem, “All the ladies if you feel me help me sing it outttt.”
9. Ariana Grande and Liz Gillies
The former Victorious stars re-created several scenes from the 2000 cult-classic mockumentary Best in Show (including Grande’s latest Jennifer Coolidge impersonation).
Grande has been steadily proving herself a Queen of Halloween contender over the past few years (with all due respect to Heidi Klum), having wowed us in recent years with her painstakingly crafted Creature from the Black Lagoon and Twilight Zone costumes. Consider this yet another win for her (and for what I’m sure is a sizable team of stylists, assistants, and makeup artists that helped her make this happen).
10. Joe Jonas
Joe, meanwhile, went all out as Flo from Progressive—bright red lipstick and all.
Frankie Jonas and his girlfriend had a personal connection to their Halloween costume this year. Jonas and his girlfriend, Anna Olson, dressed as Joe Jonas and ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift from their 2008 duet featured in the movie “Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience,” released in 2009.
He wore black pants and a leather vest on top of a graphic T-shirt with “Burnin’ Up” in prints, referencing the Jonas Brothers’ 2008 hit. Meanwhile, Olson faced him in a shimmery silver dress, similar to the one Swift wore while she performed “Should’ve Said No” with Joe while they were dating. In the Instagram post shared by the youngest Jonas, you can see how closely the couple’s outfits resemble the still of Joe and Swift on stage.
And finally, music legen Mariah Carey who knows perfectly how the transition from Halloween to Christmans came to save the day saying, ‘IT’S TIME!!!.
