Adorable and Groan-Worthy Celebrity Halloween Moments
To quote that venerable piece of celebrity journalism, US Magazine, celebrities — they’re just like us! They breed, they put their children in costumes, they wear costumes themselves, and, in doing so, manage to look either cute or ridiculously slutty. As such, Halloween is the great equalizer of holidays, because very few people look super-suave dressed up as a kitty cat.
It’s only fitting we start on the cute side of the spectrum. Here’s Brad Pitt dressed up as DJ Lance from the hipster baby staple Yo Gabba Gabba. Yo Gabba Gabba is the TV show for parents who find the Wiggles repulsive and Barney unlistenable. Pitt wins major cool-dad points for this moment. Angelina gets less points for her generic walking dead costume, but still, this is one fecking adorable family.
Coming in close on Pitt-Jolie’s tails is Jon Stewart’s clan: Snow White, a spaceman, a princess and a dad in just a pirate hat. Something about Stewart’s almost-completely-no-effort costume is charming, in my book. Not all of us want to go out into the world covered in fake blood and strange wigs. Plus, Jon Stewart might be king of the DILFs, even over Brad Pitt. (You may yell at me in the comments.)
The Stefani-Rossdales will not be outdone! Momma Gwen is Jessie from Toy Story 2! Dad Gavin takes off his costume and is just plain old awesome dad again. Did Gavin put his foot down at dressing up as Woody? I always do secretly feel sorry for those couples you see out dressed up as Raggedy Ann and Andy. That’s verging on the lame, people!
Unless you’re Heidi Klum and Seal. They went to the dark side to come up with their crow costumes. Better than actually dressing up as *the Crow* from the Brandon Lee movies? You decide.
Moving quickly from cute to zany, here’s Kelly Clarkson dressed up as the Family Guy’s Stewie Griffin at a performance on Halloween in St. Charles, Missouri. I always applaud ladies who go silly instead of slutty on Halloween night. You know, it’s pretty cold in that tiny harem dancer costume anyhow.
I wanted to change gears so fast on you that you’d get whiplash. Here’s Ice-T’s ever elegant wife Coco posing with pop queen Rihanna. Rihanna is the sluttiest Tigger you’ll ever, whilst Coco keeps it classy as a dirty dominatrix. This picture just hurts my face. Someone needs to tell Rihanna to not stand so close to the sluttiest person in the room.
So Twirlitites — Who looked the best on Halloween night? What or who did you go as?
