Halloween is a special time of year for a lot of people – especially celebrities with the time and money to really go all-out on a costume for the occasion.
It’s when their creativity and sense of humour come to the fore and 2017 is no different, with a wealth of great outfits on offer from some surprising names – who knew Gwyneth Paltrow could be funny, for example?
Thankfully loaded has waded through all the standard spooky skeleton and wicked witch outfits to bring you 9 of the most creative looks on offer this year. Let the game begin.
Do not adjust your eyes, that is Gwyneth Paltrow reprising her role as Tracy, David Mills’ wife from David Fincher’s Se7en, who ends up losing her head towards the end of the movie.
Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.
Sarah Hyland is evidently a big fan of Stranger Things and earns brownie points for her attention to detail. Does anyone else feel like eating waffles right now?
The Arrested Development star has pulled out all of the stops to become everyone’s favourite racist “lawman” Dog: The Bounty Hunter. It’s the vest jacket that makes it.
Ellie Goulding could have played it safe this Halloween but instead she went for this brilliant Dolly Parton ensemble. She looks the bloody bees knees in it too.
Miles Teller quite literally became a Butt-Head with this brilliant outfit alongside Keleigh Sperry’s similarly inspired Beavis. Is this proof that a live-action movie featuring the MTV icons could work?
Jessica Alba has made a habit of going all out for Halloween and this year is no different, with the super-successful actor and businessperson taking things to a whole other level with this brilliant Juno inspired look.
Quite how anyone was able to convince the famously grumpy Bruce Willis to get in the spirit of things by dressing up as one of the twins from The Shining is anyone’s guess but loaded is sure glad he did.
There have been plenty of great celebrity halloween costume efforts in 2017 but England’s very own Will Poulter takes the top prize for this pitch-perfect version of Sid from the original Toy Story movie. It’s so convincing you almost wonder whether the character was based on Poulter in the first place!
