Halloween 2023 was a star-studded affair, as celebrities from all corners of the entertainment world donned their most imaginative costumes to celebrate the spooky holiday. From extravagant parties to cozy family gatherings, the stars showcased their creativity, and the competition for the best Halloween outfit was fiercer than ever.
Two of the most sought-after invitations were to the annual parties hosted by Casamigos, the Tequila brand co-founded by none other than George Clooney, and the extravagant bash thrown by German supermodel Heidi Klum. These events were known for bringing together the most celebrities per square meter, making them the hottest Halloween tickets in town. However, the actors’ union had imposed a ban on certain costumes due to a strike, leaving some celebrities scrambling to reevaluate their Halloween plans.
In the age of social media, Halloween had become a competition on Instagram, where stars posted photos of their elaborate costumes. The race was on to see who could be the best-dressed, and media outlets across the board selected their own winners. Here’s Runway Magazine’s pick for the best Halloween costume of 2023 among the stars:
The Empress of Halloween – Heidi Klum: Heidi Klum is renowned for taking Halloween celebrations to a whole new level each year. She has previously transformed into a larger-than-life Jessica Rabbit, an elderly person from head to toe, a skinless body, a very hairy monkey, and even an enormous earthworm, linked to her husband Tom Kaulitz by a hook. This year, the German model once again pushed the boundaries of creativity, turning herself into the Empress of Halloween. She sported peacock wings, meticulously trained by artists from Cirque du Soleil, while her husband Tom was transformed into an egg. Their costumes were truly amazing and a testament to Heidi Klum’s dedication to the holiday.
Janelle Monáe one in a chameleon: Singer and actress Janelle Monáe took a more literal approach to her Halloween costume by becoming a chameleon. Her outfit perfectly mimicked the famous reptile, showcasing her playful and artistic side. She even organized a special Halloween photoshoot to capture the essence of her chameleon persona.
Dwayne Johnson’s in David Beckham : Dwayne Johnson, also known as “The Rock,” could have easily chosen to dress up as himself, but he opted for a clever reference to a recent controversy involving his wax figure at the Grévin museum in Paris. He was not pleased with the resemblance and felt that it looked more like David Beckham. In response, he celebrated Halloween in a Manchester United jersey, donning the number 7, a nod to the English footballer. With a humorous wig, he had the last laugh. The Rock, always full of surprises, hinted that he already had plans for next year’s costume.
Halloween in 2023 was a glamorous and imaginative spectacle, with celebrities vying for the title of the best-dressed star of the season. It was a reminder that Halloween had evolved into a creative and competitive holiday celebrated with zest and style by the entertainment elite.
