Here’s every celebrity costume worth seeing this Halloween

Halloween isn’t just for the ghouls and us mere mortals โ€” it’s also the opportunity for celebrities to obscure their faces, walk red carpets in costume, and may homage to other (often deceased) famous people.

Some celebs take the holiday extremely seriously, and go all out with intricate makeup and expensive costumes. Others, however, simply put on a cheap wig and call it a day.

Here’s a handful of the best celebrity Halloween costumes that have been spotted so far this year: the good, the bad, the ugly … and the lazy.

Emily Ratajkowski dressed up(?) as a scantily-clad woman with purple hair.
