They’re just being Miley! This year’s “It” Halloween costume is, without question, Miley Cyrus‘ MTV Video Music Awards performance outfit, which became instantly iconic after the “Wrecking Ball” singer’s raunchy duet with Robin Thicke back in August. Several celebs, including Paris Hilton, Kelly Ripa, Jenny McCarthy, and Hugh Hefner‘s wife Crystal Harris, have gone the “twerk or treat” route in 2013 — but who did it best?
Hilton, 32, donned a replica of Cyrus’ gray teddy bear leotard for Playboy Mansion’s annual Halloween costume party on Saturday, Oct. 26. Like the 20-year-old former Hannah Montana star, she styled her blonde hair in little buns on top of her head. Unlike Cyrus, she added sky-high silver stilettos, diamond jewelry, and shiny tights.
Playboy model Harris, 27, also attended the Playboy party as the “We Can’t Stop” singer. With Hefner clad in a black-and-white striped suit a la Robin Thicke, she rocked a minidress version of Cyrus’ nude latex bra and hot pants set, complete with a foam finger. Her 87-year-old Playboy mogul husband shared a photo of the getup on Twitter, with Harris twerking in front of him and sticking out her tongue.
Ripa, 43, recreated the same moment with her Live! With Kelly and Michael co-host Michael Strahan, who channeled Thicke in a black-and-white striped suit and sunglasses. (The costume was one of many for the duo; they also dressed up as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods, and Breaking Bad‘s Jesse Pinkman and Walter White.)
Ripa’s getup was a hit, certainly, but View co-host McCarthy had perhaps the most original of the Miley Cyrus costumes. She went as Cyrus’ tongue, which the singer sticks out on pretty much every red carpet she hits. “Yes indeed I am Miley’s tongue,” she captioned a photo of herself in costume. Then, referring to the star’s “Wrecking Ball” video, she quipped, “I craved sledgehammers all day.”
