With spooky gatherings and trick-or-treating off the festive menu this year, Halloween looks rather different. But as we know, the more people get into pandemic-induced social distancing, the more time and creativity they have on their hands to show some mad DIY skills. And celebrities are no exception.

So this year, the A-listers put some heavyweight efforts into their Halloween costumes and they didn’t go unnoticed!

From Maura Higgins rocking Christina Aguilera's raunchy look from 2002, to Cardi B transforming into reptile-tailed Medusa, these are some of the most incredible spooky looks of the year and we absolutely love it.

Halloween is a time for frights, costumes, and fun, but this year was a little different. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has warned people to not forget social distancing and keep others and ourselves safe during the holidays. “Avoid direct contacts,” “wear a mask,” and "spend more time in the comfort of our homes" were among the official guidelines.

But the yearly costume reveals on social media were far from over, and celebrities were no exception. Kelsea Ballerini rocked a Karen look, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend dressed up as Spiderman and the White Swan in their home, and Kim Kardashian nailed Carole Baskin from the TV series Tiger King.

Just like every year, a majority of celebrity costumes were inspired by pop culture references, recent events, and bold characters that got everyone talking in 2020. Other popular themes this year were the pandemic and related attributes like coronavirus, masks, vaccines, memes of the year 2020, etc.
