Pregnant Jessica Alba was Juno and more celebrity Halloween costumes

Halloween is coming tomorrow and I’m so excited! I live in a mediocre section of town and usually don’t go through more than one or two bags of candy but I’m buying more just in case. Over the weekend I was visiting with friends who just bought a new house in a high end development. Their neighbors warned them to buy enough candy for the 200 plus kids they usually get on Halloween each year and I felt slightly jealous. I think I’ll do some variation of a dead woman with a cut throat this year, using this tutorial, as I have a lot of the supplies on hand from all the variations of zombie I’ve done recently. (80s workout zombie, bridesmaid zombie to my friend’s bride zombie, and I have the white contacts and everything.)

That’s all preface to this post of some random celebrities’ Halloween costumes. First off we have Jessica Alba as pregnant teen Juno, which is fitting, with her friend Kelly Sawyer as Paulie, the father of Juno’s baby. Jessica also posted this Instagram with photos of their past couples’ costumes. I love this idea of couples dressing with your bestie every year and building up like a portfolio of awesome costumes. Jessica’s husband, Cash Warren, dressed as Luigi. He looks a little like Liev Schreiber to me here. These two were seen outside Kelly Rowland’s Halloween party. I bet if you had an elaborate expensive-looking costume that obscured your face you could waltz in there like a celebrity. *Considers crashing famous people’s Halloween parties*


I had to do like three minutes of research to figure out that Kelly Rowland is Grace Jones’s character Strangé from the 1992 Eddie Murphy movie Boomerang, which I admittedly haven’t seen. Excellent job now that I know.


Kristen Bell dressed as Elsa from Frozen because one of her daughters loves Elsa even though she’s the voice of Anna. Plus she needs the publicity for her Bad Moms sequel.

When your daughter demands you BOTH be ELSA for Halloween…you GRIN AND FORKING BEAR IT. #halloween

Sarah Hyland is dating Bachelor in Paradise’s Wells Adams and they dressed as Eleven and Dustin because they’re awesome. She looks like Sally Field! Incidentally, I just finished episode three last night and the second season is everything I was hoping for and more. This is how you do a social media announcement that you’re dating someone, with a couple’s costume. My friend Hecate once told me that you know a new boyfriend is a keeper if they’ll dress in costume with you.

Nina Dobrev was a sugar skull and scroll through for a picture of her holding her dog!

Miles Teller was Butthead from Beavis and Butthead, which is kind of self aware, right? He was seen at Matthew Morrison’s Halloween party.

Speaking of self aware, Will Poulter was Sid from Toy Story! Awesome.

Matthew Morrison did dad mode or Mr. Mom or something like that. Not a bad concept.

Finally Here’s Demi Lovato as Selena. [via US] E! has a photo of the performance outfit she’s homaging and it’s a very close match.

  2. Jensies says:

    See, it IS possible to have a Halloween costume not be racist!

    Show these to everyone who somehow still manages to mess this up. In 2017.

      as a mexican american i don’t have a problem with sugar skills, but it is my culture and I do an alter for my mother.
      sugar skull:
      The term is most often applied to decorative or edible skulls made (usually by hand) from either sugar (called Alfeñiques) or clay which are used in the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) and the Roman Catholic holiday All Souls’ Day. !

      it’s not for girls to try to be sexy. I know Nina did a good job, which is why I don’t have a problem with it. other people use it as a way of being “cool”. I laugh at those fools hysterically.

      • Jensies says:

        Great point. I hadn’t thought of the appropriation of the skulls, had just been looking at it being done well and respectfully, but totally valid.

  3. Lucy says:

    Jessica and Will Poulter win!!

  4. greenmonster says:

    Sarah Hyland… I honestly thought this was Sally Field! Usually I don’t care too much about Demi Lovato, but her dressing up as Selena is awsome.

  5. Kizzy says:

    Urgh, that Sugar Skull costume is annoying AF. Día de los Muertos IS NOT the same as Halloween. It’s a traditional holiday in Mexico where we honor our loved ones who have passed away. It’s pretty sacred to those of us who celebrate it.

    • Alleycat says:

      I was just going to ask if that costume was considered offensive. I know it’s a pretty important holiday for those who celebrate it.

    • Erinn says:

      I only learned a couple of years ago that it was problematic. I’m in Canada, and know very little about that culture. I always thought sugar skulls were so beautiful – but I never dressed as one or anything like that. But I now understand why it’s an issue for people when someone dresses up as one.

    • JA says:

      How is that annoying as F tho? She did a great job with the makeup and did not go the route of flashy her boobs or A$$ while wearing it i.e. donning a “slutty” costume? Not sure why its annoying sans for the fact she wore it before November 2nd.

    • Steph says:

      Im Mexican and I been dying to paint my face as a sugar skull. Do you even know the meaning of a calaverita and the mocking of politicians ?
      I live in Mexico City so I’ve seen many kids painted their faces just like that. People who have issues with this are mostly Mexican Americans. I honestly don’t consider them Mexicans anymore.

      • Kizzy says:

        It’s annoying to me because it’s becoming just another fad for people that don’t celebrate the holiday to dress as such. I don’t speak for all Mexicans I speak for myself. Some folks have a problem with it, others don’t. Personally, if you are doing it as an homage to Día de los Muertos its one thing, but a lot of people who wear the costume for Halloween don’t know that the sugar skull represents an offering for the deceased. Also I’m from Zapopan, Jalisco and you don’t get to define how “Mexican” anyone is.

      • Jay says:

        Did you go to the parade this past weekend? Or the “Mega Catrina” one the previous weekend? Some really gorgeous ones! And the dogs got to lead the parade…that was very emotional I thought.

      • TheOtherMaria says:

        Well thanks for dismissing us Mexican Americans as not being Mexican, the US government would strongly disagree with you tho…

        I don’t find the makeup offensive, however, I don’t represent every Mexican so I can’t speak for them; personally, I find wearing a sombrero and pancho far more offensive as it reduces us (American Mexicans) as a caricature, but what do I know?

        Apparently, I’m not Mexican enough 😒

    • Kizzy says:

      For the record my personal feelings on the costume should not be an opening to insult others or define someone’s identity. Whether you are Mexican or Mexican American, every Mexican has their own opinion, we are not a monolith. The holiday has always been sacred to me because it has been how we have mourned my baby brother for nearly 20 years. I am entitled to have feelings about it, just like everyone else. I’m ok with folks not having the same view it’s how you feel.

    • Whoopsy Daisy says:

      Is Dia de los Muertos the same as All Saints’ day? Which is a huge Catholic holiday?

      • Kizzy says:

        Whoopsy Daisy they are similar in some ways but not the exact same holiday, although they do overlap days. All Saint’s Days is derived from Europe, whereas Día De los Muertos originated before the land was colonized. However, over time the latter has been influenced by Catholicism.

  6. Originaltessa says:

    Omg Will Poulter wins!

  7. JA says:

    Great costumes! Follow Nina on Instagram and it took an hour for her to get that makeup off but they did a fabulous job with it. Wish Demi would have done justice to the Selena costume without having to have her tatas steal the show…it would have been great but ya know that’s kinda Demis MO, look at ME!!! Her breasts are screaming for help :-0

  8. Jay says:

    La Catrina, not “Sugar Skull”. If you are going to take from another culture, at least get the name right. That said, I’ve seen some pretty amazing Catrinas at the parades these past couple weekends!

  9. Serene Wolf says:

    Wow, great photos! Very inspiring.

  10. Katie says:

    Gwyneth Paltrow’s was great. Head in a box.

  11. Nicole says:

    Go see Boomerang. It stands up. One of my all time favorite movies. Kelly Rowland nailed it!

  12. Severin88 says:

    I love all of these!! The sugar skull make-up is beautiful.

  13. Rox says:

    Where is Heidi Klum and Adele? they always are the best lol

  14. CharlieBouquet says:

    The Mr and I have been Gregg Allman and Janis, he dressed as Paris Hilton and I dressed as paparazzi, and our all time best was the twins from the Shining. We held hands and said come play with us the whole night lol.

  15. Whoopsy Daisy says:

    I feel like everyone is Eleven from Stranger things this year.

  16. Canadiangirl says:

    Wow… Selena!!

  17. Anilehcim says:

    I absolutely LOVE Jessica Alba’s costume this year! She does great costumes with her best friend almost every year. They’ve done Edina and Patsy from AbFab, Slash and Axel Rose, and Romy and Michele. She also did Dora and Diego with her husband one year.
