9 Celebrity-Inspired Costumes for Halloween


Ditch the sexy firefighter and zombie maid getups — this Halloween is the year to go as your favorite celebrity. From a certain pregnant songstress to British royals turned American superstars, Us Weekly has you covered.

Whether you're battling for a glitz pageant title or just want to impress the neighbors with your Halloween costume, it's important to put your best face forward with the right hair and makeup. But keep in mind, as Toddlers & Tiaras' teeny tot pros advise, pick the best colors and use the right products — even if you don't want to. "I don't really like hairspray. I can't even breathe when they spray it!” laments little Eden Wood in this how-to clip.

And remember: it's all about the finishing touches. So if you're dressing up as Kate Middleton, don't forget her sapphire engagement ring (a replica is available at Sears for under $35) and if you're heading out as Pregnant Beyonce, don't forget to don a sequined blazer and rub your belly during your grand entrance at the party.
