Another year, another stellar Halloween costume from Ellen DeGeneres! The comedienne — who dressed as Nicki Minaj last year, and Sofia Vergara in 2012 — went all out for the Friday, Oct. 31, episode of her self-titled talk show, revealing what she called her “sexiest costume yet”: George Clooney‘s new wife, Amal Alamuddin.
“Happy Halloween! You can probably tell who I am,” DeGeneres said as she emerged from backstage in a replica of the human rights lawyer’s Oscar de la Renta wedding dress, with a life-size tuxedo-clad Clooney doll attached to her side. “I’m Amal, the luckiest woman in the world, Mrs. George Clooney. Say hi, George.”
The talk show host went on to joke about the timely costume, saying, “I like Halloween because it’s the one time of year you can dress up however you want, and pretend you’re someone you’d never be in real life. For me, that’s married to a man.”
She added, “You know, I went all out for you people. I didn’t even wear a wedding dress to my own wedding.” (DeGeneres tied the knot with longtime love Portia de Rossi in 2008.)
“This might be my sexiest costume yet,” the star told the audience, paying a compliment to Clooney’s bride. “Because what’s sexier than a woman with a brain?”
As previously reported, the Gravity actor and the Brit beauty said “I do” in Italy on Sept. 27, with friends including Matt Damon, Anna Wintour, Rande Gerber, Cindy Crawford, Bill Murray, Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, and Bono in attendance.
DeGeneres’ audience on Friday was a little less star-studded — but no less entertaining! “You all look fantastic,” she gushed of everyone’s costumes. “I’ve been watching you out here, and I look at you as an extended wedding party. And you know how people hook up at weddings! I think it’d be really great if there are any single people here and you hook up.”
She continued: “What a great story to tell people. ‘We met at the Ellen Wedding Party. I was SpongeBob and he was a pickle.'”
