Demi Lovato, Camila Mendes And Cardi B: Here Are Our Favorite Celebrities In Over The Top Halloween Costumes

Halloween 2019 is taking over two spooky weekends this year, and that means we’re getting double the parties and double the celebrity costume extravaganza. We all know crazy Halloween fans who go all out on All Hallows Eve, but no one nails costumes quite like celebs do. Granted, most of us don’t have the budget they do, so let’s sit back and watch as they serve spooky looks for all of us to gawk at. Here’s what we gathered from weekend one.

With another weekend in store, we selected our favorite celebrity costumes from weekend number one.

Reigning Halloqueen, Heidi Klum, hasn’t hosted her annual Halloween party yet, so we have next weekend to look up to for that, but many celebs hit the town in other celebrity-inspired costumes, dressed up as dead history characters, or just as a good old ‘sexy-this-or-that’ outfit. We rounded up some of our faves:

Demi Lovato as Sexy Penny Wise

The Halloween-loving singer already blew our minds with her costume choices this year. On Saturday she dressed up as a lady version of Pennywise the clown, complete with professional clown makeup, a cute red wig and a ruffled white dress with red, fluffy buttons to resemble the villain’s iconic outfit.

Demi again, of course. The singer takes Halloween very seriously, and this year she’s already wowed everyone with two killer costumes. For round two, Demi dressed up as everyone’s favorite decadent monarch, Marie Antoinette. The singer was in full glam with pearl makeup embellishments and a massive blonde wig to look just like the 18th-century royal. 

Halsey as Marilyn Manson

Thank God someone paid tribute to the one and only man who celebrates Halloween 365 days a year. Halsey channeled Marilyn Manson’s late 90s clam at her annual Halloween party in L.A. The singer recreated Manson’s iconic ‘Mechanical Animals’ album cover art in a red wig and elaborate eye makeup, complete with a white vinyl bodysuit. 

Cardi B as a Sexy Nurse

There really is nothing Cardi could ever wear that wouldn’t be deemed as ‘sexy’, so let’s just leave it at nurse. The singer wore a skintight mini-length, nurse’s outfit, complete with a hat and stethoscope to join hubby Offset on stage in New Jersey.

Halsey —again. Dressed up as Cher

Paired up with rumored-beau Evan Peters, Haley dressed up in the iconic couple’s costume of Sonny and Cher. From the slick hair and the polka-dot coordinating ensembles to the very ‘70s ‘stache and “Cher” nameplate necklace, both Halsey and Evan matched the iconic pair’s looks to perfection.

Camila Mendes as Rick, from Rick and Morty

The 25-year-old actress channeled her inner genius scientist and made it hella sexy in the process, throwing on a baby blue bobbed wig and a chic white blazer as a lab coat. She even covered her chin in glitter to hint at Rick’s dribble —ugh how did we not think about this one?

Lele Pons as Maleficent

The Venezuelan YouTube star dressed up as everyone’s favorite Disney villain, Maleficent. She also posed with fellow Youtuber, Hannah Stocking, who went as Cruella de Vil and honeslty, we wish we could be in the picture with those two.

The actress also decided to dress up as the mistress of evil in a full length dress and matching horns. Are we spotting a trend here?

Lele took the Joker craze to the next level by channeling her inner Gotham super-villain in the making the ‘Joker’ —the sexier version that is. Complete with an orange corset, red blazer and green hair, we think the influencer nailed it. 

Nina Dobrev as Billie Eillish

The ‘Vampire Diaries’ seems to have caught a case of the ‘ocean eyes’. The actress channe;ed Gen Z star, Billie Eillish in bright, baggy clothing reminiscent of the Bury A Friend songstress’ frequent onstage look.

Gabrielle Union twinning with her daughter as Clovers cheerleaders from ‘Bring it On’

The actress dressed up as her iconic character, Isis, in the 2000 teen film, Bring It On. Not only was it major to see the 46-year-old star don that famous green “Clovers” cheerleading uniform, but she twinned with her baby daughter, Kaavia James Union Wade. And the two served lewks in their costumes, too.

Liza Koshy as Anna Wintour

The comedian dressed up as infamous fashion ring-master Anna Wintour. A fashion editor costume? For Halloween? …yeah, ok, pretty groundbreaking. 

Stormi Webster as mom Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner dressed her one-year-old daughter in a recreated version of her Met Gala look at this year’s event. The original gown worn by Jenner in May was a custom design from Versace, but this one’s pretty neat too.

Yes, Beyoncé Really Did Run Into Selena Quintanilla At A Mall Back In The Day

Part 2 of Netflix’s “Selena: The Series,” is currently streaming, which means fans of the late Tejano singer are getting a chance to learn more about her origin stories. In the second part of the series, fans can expect to see more of the icon’s tragically brief but beautifully successful life. The new episodes chronicle Selena Quintanilla’s rise as a superstar and will no doubt make fans of the singer feel a deep sense of love for her.

Particularly when it comes to one episode in particular!

Part 2’s episode 6, called “Lo Más Bello,” sees the lives of two superstars collide.

The endearing episode sees Selena, played by Christian Serratos, on a shopping trip to an outdoor mall with her mother and sister. It’s then that the young singer catches the eye of a young girl who is also with her mother and sister.

Perhaps it’s real seeing real, but in either case in this episode, the young girl stops to gaze at Selena. She’s star-struck. In the episode, the young girl’s mother asks who she’s looking at and the girl replies, “Selena, a famous singer. Be quiet!”

Knowing that her daughter is a singer herself, the mother encourages her to introduce herself. Of course, the young girl is too shy to say hello but she does wave.

When Selena walks away, the young girl’s mother reveals a fun twist when she says “Beyoncé Knowles, you better learn not to be afraid of people if you ever want to be famous too.”

Like we said…

Real recognizing real.

While it might seem like the producers took creative liberty, it turns out they actually didn’t. And it makes sense. Fans of Selena and Beyoncé know that the two singers are Texan-icons.

In a recent interview for MTV Trés, Beyoncé revealed that she actually did see Selena, in the Galleria Mall in Houston. “I didn’t say much to Selena because I wasn’t a celebrity,” Beyoncé said in an interview for MTV Trés back in the day. “I just saw her and said hello and kept it moving. Definitely growing up in Texas I heard her on the radio, and I think listening to her album, even though I didn’t know exactly what she was saying, it helped me in the studio with my pronunciation.”

Fans of the Texan starlets might also remember how Beyonce, in a 2007 interview with People en Español, spoke about her love of Selena.

At the time, Beyoncée was celebrating her re-release of six Spanish-language tracks. “I listened to Selena all the time” she recalled at the time of the interview. “She’s close to me because of where I’m from.”

Both “Selena: The Series” Parts 1 and 2 are streaming right now on Netflix! Check them out!

Shakira Dyed Her Hair Red And It Will Give You Major ‘Ojos Asi’ Vibes

Shakira Dyed Her Hair Red And It Will Give You Major ‘Ojos Asi’ Vibes

Twenty years have passed since Shakira released her fourth studio album ¿Dónde Están los Ladrones? which featured her song “Ojos Asi.”

The music video for the hit song featured Shakira belly dancing with a vibrant red hair look that so many of us spent the early aughts attempting to emulate. The video won the International Viewer’s Choice Award (North) at the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards and the hair won a place in our hearts.

Now, it’s 2021 and Shakira has returned to the red color.

The Colombian singer-songwriter showed off her dyed locks in a post shared on her Instagram on Wednesday.

The post showed Shakira preparing for a recording session and saw her dressed in a chic green-and-white outfit. She teased her upcoming project with the caption “Ready to leave my house to go to my first in-person studio session to meet with some awesome collaborators thanks to safety measures and vaccines. I can’t wait!”

Shakira made waves earlier this month on Instagram that weren’t about her hair.

In an effort to highlight Earth Day, Shakira signed a letter written by Earth shot Prize Council which called on people to tackle our planet’s current climate crisis with the same tenacity used to fight Covid-19.

In a post shared to her Instagram and Twitter pages the singer wrote “As a Member of The @EarthshotPrize Council, I’m calling on the world to Give the Earth a Shot. This #EarthDay, let’s be inspired by the innovation of the past year & work together to repair our planet.”

She also attached a link to the full letter which underlined how “People everywhere have worn masks, stayed at home and made sacrifices for the greater good. The availability of vaccines after just a year is both a triumph of science and a victory for collaboration. There is a long way to go. None of us are safe until everybody is safe. But we have learned what it means to pull together in the face of a truly global crisis. These lessons apply not just to pandemics but to the most pressing challenge in human history: stopping the climate emergency. If we do not act in this decade, the damage to our planet will be irreversible, impacting not only those of us alive today but threatening the future of generations to come.”

Shakira’s upcoming album is most anticipated by her fans. It will be her first studio album release since the 2017 release of her album El Dorado.
