In my opinion, Halloween 2022 was a great day for unique and fun costumes: some of my favorites included Zack and Cody from the early 2000’s Danimals commercial, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen complete with divorce papers, and Jack Black’s Shelly Oberon from the Jumanji reboot. This quality of costume thankfully extended to celebrity looks, and as it should—there’s no excuse to have a lame costume if you have celebrity money!

Here are a few of the celebrity Halloween looks that I felt were spooky good:

If you are unfamiliar with this famous trio of “Riverdale” fame, you should know that they never fail to pull together an adorable group costume while incorporating their differing hair colors. This year might just be my favorite ensemble yet, with the three actresses dressing as the Sanderson Sisters from “Hocus Pocus.” While maintaining the spirit of the original movie costume, the trio managed to put a modern spin on a iconic look by referencing modern trends like corset tops and layered miniskirts, keeping a classic look fresh. I hope they can get out of their ironclad “Riverdale” contracts soon so they can serve looks like these fulltime!

Keke Palmer

Rogue from Marvel’s “X-Men” franchise, and I haven’t been the same since. As a long-time, intense lover and defender of the “X-Men” movies, which often receive criticism for their healthy doses of cheesiness and weak dialogue, I was shocked and thrilled to see how many celebrities pulled looks from this underappreciated franchise. To name a few, Saweetie and Kim Kardashian both pulled off earth-shatteringly flawless Mystique costumes, and Chloe Bailey gave a stunning and comic-book-accurate Storm.


However, Keke took first place in my book—both because I simply love her as a person and actress, and because I adore the fresh take on Rogue’s general description, as Keke opted to include Rogue’s iconic white hair streak as bangs on a curly wig, rather than Rogue’s traditional straight hair with a subtle dash of white.

Harry Styles

For those unfamiliar with the tradition, whenever Harry Styles has a performance on Halloween, the night is renamed “Harryween” and is accompanied by fun attractions outside of the venue, an invitation to wear your best costume to the show, and the addition of brand new covers to the setlist—for fans of his, it is the event of the year. As someone who attended Harryween and witnessed with my own eyes the reveal of Harry’s 2022 Harryween look as Danny Zuko from “Grease,” I can now say my life is divided into two periods: pre-Harry Zuko and post-Harry Zuko. Prior to the show, Styles had hinted at his costume being a variety of different characters, including Willy Wonka and Beetlejuice; as a result, the reveal was that much more iconic, as nobody saw the eyeliner-leather-denim-greaser slay coming. This already fantastic costume was pushed onto my list of winners by Harry’s performance of “Hopelessly Devoted,” which I now can’t think about without getting heartburn-like chest pains and severe post-concert depression.

Heidi Klum

I wanted to finish off with this look because I have undergone serious and painful consideration of Klum’s visual assault of a costume to come to this conclusion. They say that the most beautiful things in life are that which you don’t understand, and they also say there is a fine line between love and hate. I’d have to say that both sayings apply to Klum’s worm look. How is her face so blended into the costume? How did she get renowned special effects artist and designer Mike Marino to make this…apparatus? What compelled her to be a literal worm? All of these questions, along with the sight of this costume, incite fear and anger in my heart: why did I have to see Heidi Klum as a worm, why did she do this to us?

And then I thought to myself, maybe I fear it simply because I don’t understand it. Maybe she knows something I don’t, and though she knew she was on a plane of existence that none of us plebeians have evolved to yet, she decided to go through with her vision. Though though the sight of it still makes me vaguely nauseous, I think I have to trust that Worm Klum is a good exercise in attempting to accept the unknown, and I suspect there is a hidden message in its heinousness that philosophers might one day use to bring humans back from the brink of war—in which case, thank you, Worm Klum, for saving mankind.
