With Halloween right around the corner, many of us are stressing over the perfect costume for our first real spooky night since the start of the pandemic. This year’s parties are sure to bring out looks from our favorite celebrities who are known to go hard for Halloween. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and recount the most iconic 2019 Halloween costumes that we still think about today!
1. Gabrielle Union as Isis
Go Clovers! Gabrielle Union showcased her Halloween spirit when she tapped into her Clovers roots in 2019 and matched with her daughter, Kaavia James. Her instagram post wearing the standout green uniform definitely made many people nostalgic as they remember her iconic role, Iris, in the cult favorite cheerleading movie, Bring It On! We don’t know how she’ll manage to top this costume this year, but we are eager to see what she comes up with!
2. Kim Kardashian as Elle Woods
After announcing that she wants to become a lawyer in the 2019 May issue of Vogue, it was such a powerful move to dress up as everyone’s favorite law student, Elle Woods, for Halloween! The 2001 film, Legally Blonde, remains one of the most talked about chick-flicks on social media for its witty script and social commentary about women’s presence in male dominated careers. Kim channeled her inner Elle Woods with a completely pink ensemble, fluffy pen, and of course, an adorable little puppy in her bag. We’re sure Kim can manage to pull out another cute Halloween look this season!
3. Tracee Elliss Ross as Red
Tracee Ellis Ross put the scary in Halloween with a spot on costume of Lupita Nyong’o’s Us character, Red. The actress wore a red jumpsuit, identical to the ones seen in the thriller, and posed for the camera with a pair of silver scissors in her hand. Ross had the facial expressions down to the tee. This 2019 Halloween costume was definitely one of the scarier costumes shared that year. Will she take on another Jordan Peele character this year? Perhaps, Candyman?
4. Ciara and Russel Wilson as The Carters
An iconic couple dressing up as another iconic couple is a risk, but Ciara and Russel Wilson’s risk paid off in their 2019 Halloween costume. The couple dressed up as the Carters for the occasion, sporting the same suits that Beyonce and Jay-Z wore in their Apeshit music video. The two even copied the poses and background, with the exception of the painting hanging on the wall. Ciara and Russel Wilson opted for a portrait of the Obamas to accompany them in their picture. We’re excited to see which direction they go in for their costumes this year. Another couple costume please!
5. Ariana Grande as the Face of "The Eye of the Beholder"
Ariana Grande has been known for her showstopping Halloween looks. The singer is not shy about her love for the holiday, often having multiple posts to show off her Halloween plans. Grande always talks about her love for horror so it was no surprise when she showed up to a 2019 party dressed as the face from “The Eye of the Beholder,” an episode from the Twilight Zone that aired in 1960. She didn’t shy away from the grotesque side of Halloween and fully embraced the illusion. Grande’s look for this year is highly anticipated by fans and lovers of the holiday!
