Scroll down to check out the 10 best celebrity Halloween costumes of 2019.
10 Kardashian-West Family: The Flinstones
Meet The Flintstones, they're the modern stone age family! While the Kardashian-West family might be known for their minimalist, futuristic, high-fashion style, this Halloween costume took it (way, way) back and dressed up as the beloved Flinstone family.
Kim Kardashian dressed as Betty Rubble, North and Chicago as Wilma and Fred Flinstone, and Saint dressed as the youngest member of the Flinstone family, Pebbles Flinstone. Unless he's hiding as Dino (the Flinstone's friendly dino pet), Kanye was behind the camera when this adorable pic was taken.
9 Lil Nas X: Cam'ron
The Grammy-nominated artist, and fashion icon rising, switched up his Old Town Road cowboy look (but kept his signature bright color scheme!) for his Cam'ron Halloween costume.
Lil Nas X was snapped leaving Beyonce and Jay Z's New York Halloween party recreating rapper Cam'ron's iconic pink outfit. Dressed in a hot pink furry hoodie, furry hat, white shirt, chains, and a hot pink flip phone, Lil Nas X spent his first Halloween in the spotlight in style.
8 The Weeknd: The Joker
The Starboy posed on his pool table to show off his perfect Joker costume. While the recent success of Joaquin Phoenix's gritty and heartfelt depiction of the Joker, and the DC Comics reboot might have inspired a whole slew of Joker costumes in 2019, The Weeknd threw it back to 1989 and recreated Jack Nicholson's Joker down to the iconic eerie grin.
And, if you were wondering, all this heavy makeup wasn't easy to remove. In a series of tweets, the award-winning artist showed his makeup-removal struggles.
7 Billie Eilish: Lil Xan
In April of 2019, rapper Lil Xan shared a hilarious fan-made edit that compared photos of himself and 17-year-old superstar Billie Eilish. Billie must have seen the edit because for Halloween, she recreated the Live or Die rapper's look with a face-full of recognizable tats, a baggy t-shirt, and an oversized hoodie.
This Halloween, Billie Eilish was the costume of choice for celebs and actors. Jameela Jamila, Nina Dobrev, and Anne Marie all dressed in Billie's signature oversized shirts, small sunnies, and heavy chains.
6 Jason Momoa: Elvis Presley
Jason Momoa has brought his acting talents to hit films and TV and captured the hearts of viewers everywhere with his dynamic portrayal of characters like Aquaman, Khal Drogo, and Ronan Dex.

5 Ciara and Russell Wilson: Beyonce and Jay-Z
Ciara and hubby Russell Wilson nailed their Halloween looks with a perfect recreation of Beyonce and Jay-Z's looks in the Carter's iconic APES**T music video.
Can you spot the small difference? While The Carter's set APES**T in The Louvre and pose in front of the world's most famous and most visited painting, Da Vinci's Mona Lisa, the chart-topping songstress and the quarterback posed in front of 44th US President Barack Obama and first lady, Michelle Obama.
4 Normani: Noami Campbell
Normani, the 23-year-old songstress and former member of girl group Fifth Harmony, slayed Halloween with her homage to supermodel Namoi Campbell. From the leopard leotard, matching arm warmer and pumps, dynamic pose, and fierce face, Normani pulled off a perfect recreation of the 90's photoshoot taken for the late fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa.
Noami Campbell approved. "Love this," the supermodel wrote on Instagram along with a side by side snap of her iconic look and Normani's flawless costume.
3 Ariana Grande: Pig Girl from The Twilight Zone's The Eye of the Beholder
Ariana Grande went all out for Halloween with this creepy homage to the classic TV show, The Twilight Zone. In this episode -- The Eye of the Beholder -- a beautiful woman tries to undergo cosmetic surgery to fit in with the standard of beauty. While Ariana's costume might have dazzled her fans, apparently the look wasn't the most comfortable in the world. The songstress spent "five hours [getting ready in] prosthetics and glam" and couldn't "breathe or drink or eat."
Ariana Grande might have seen a few familiar faces at the Halloween parties. Celebs like Kourtney Kardashian and even popular poet Rupi Kaur put on the thank u, next songstress' ponytail extensions and short skirts for Halloween.
