This year, the range of celebrity costumes ran the gamut, with entertainers posing as iconic cartoon characters and slasher movie villains, while also giving their best take on trendy pop-culture references.
Hailey Bieber paid tribute to Britney Spears, Kerry Washington dressed up as a character from the popular Netflix series “Squid Game,” and NBA Star LeBron James appeared as Freddy Krueger.
Here are some of the most memorable Halloween costumes from 2021.
Hailey Bieber went full out as Britney Spears, modeling several different costumes of the singer from different eras.
“The first concert I ever went to was the queen @britneyspears and I’ve been shook ever since,” Bieber wrote on Instagram.
Compared to his wife’s more complex costumes, Justin Bieber opted for a more simplistic getup as a brown bear with silver chains for extra style.
Ciara also took on multiple costumes this year, taking on the late singer Selena, as well as all three members of the singing group TLC.
“The Legendary Selena!” Ciara wrote on Instagram. “I’ve been practicing learning Spanish and having the time of my life. So I wanted one of my costumes to reflect the LatinX culture. This was so much fun!”
The Legend-Teigen clan posed as “The Addams Family,” with Chrissy Teigen dressed as Morticia, John Legend as Gomez, and Teigen’s mom (Vilailuck Teigen) as Grandmama. The couple’s daughter Luna dressed as Wednesday, and their son Miles went as Pugsley. Though Cousin It also appeared in the pictures, it’s unclear who wore the costume.
Cardi B also pulled inspiration from “The Addams Family” for her costume, posing between two hearses as Morticia Addams.
Later, she posted a slideshow of pictures with another costume with her daughter, Kulture. Both were dressed as witches and the caption referenced the “I Put a Spell on You” song from “Hocus Pocus.”
LeBron James celebrated Halloween as Freddy Krueger, posting one of the “Nightmare on Elm Street” villain’s most memorable lines on Instagram: “Sticks and stones may break my bones but nothing will ever kill me.”
Lizzo did her best Grogu/”Baby Yod”a impression, taking on the popular character for Spotify’s Ghost Town Halloween Party in West Hollywood on Friday, where she did a surprise performance.
Lizzo’s posted several photos of her in the costume on Instagram, writing in the caption: “A representative from Grogu’s publicity team has issued a statement regarding the paparazzi photos taken last night.”
The faux statement said “Grogu aka Baby Yoda aka The Child has no recollection of these events. In fact, these events never happened *jedi hand wave.*'”
On Sunday, she posted a video of herself performing Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” whilst wearing the costume of the “Red Light, Green Light” doll from “Squid Game” at Outside Lands in San Francisco on Saturday.
Megan Thee Stallion showed another side of herself, donning white makeup as the “Hellraiser” character Pinhead. During a performance on Friday night at Powerhouse 2021 in Philadelphia, the Texas rapper wore a Cruella De Vil-inspired costume complete with a robe, black lingerie, and a dalmatian-colored bang.
Doja Cat also wore multiple outfits during last week’s Halloween. Her first was “Powerpuff Girls” Sara Bellum, which had a little toy of The Mayor of Townsville pinned to the iconic red suit. On Sunday, Doja Cat appeared on Instagram Live dressed as Cynthia from “Rugrats.”
These two outfits follow her birthday post a week before where she dressed up as Princess Kida from “Atlantis: The Lost Empire.”

Football player Aaron Rodgers went the extra mile for his John Wick costume. During a September 2021 interview on the “Pat McAfee Show,” the Green Bay Packers quarterback revealed he grew his hair out for a year to achieve the look.

Kerry Washington donned a popular “Squid Game” costume, wearing the blue and white track suit with her player number.

Grande’s husband Dalton Gomez was also a part of the costume’s photoshoot in the role of the “Handsome Scuba Man.”
During Halloween weekend, Gomez and Grande also dressed up as Audrey and Seymour from “Little Shop of Horrors.”

While many celebrities dressed up as other celebrities, Steve Buscemi took this one step further by dressing up as a meme of himself.
“How do you do, fellow kids?” is a meme taken from a scene in “30 Rock” where Buscemi pretends to be a teen while wearing a T-shirt that says “Music Band” and a backward baseball cap.
The meme is often used to show that you feel old. Multiple fans took pictures with the actor in the exact outfit from the show, including a skateboard.
