Halloween 2022 has come and gone, but not without celebrities going all out for spooky season, showcasing their intricate costumes on social media.
Hollywood’s scary moodboard this year included cartoon and anime characters, superheroes, as well as pop culture icons.
Several parties took place over the Halloween weekend that saw numerous famous faces showing off their elaborate costumes, including the highly anticipated return of German model Heidi Klum’s legendary Halloween party.
Klum’s party took a two-year hiatus due to the Covid pandemic, but kicked off with much fanfare on Monday night (31 October).
From Kim Kardashian’s metamorphosis into X-Men character Mystique to “queen of Halloween” Klum’s big comeback as a giant invertebrate, to Lizzo’s homage to Marge Simpson, here are our favourite costumes from Halloween 2022.
