Halloween is still a few days away but that didn’t stop celebrities from showing off their A-list costumes over the weekend.

When it comes to Hollywood it’s all about whose costume can get the most likes on social media. If you wear a costume and no one tweets about it, did it even happen?

So far, it doesn’t look like anyone followed Megyn Kelly’s rules for Halloween wear. So no need to be offended; we have three more days for that.

Harry Styles as Elton John

A pop sensation honoring a pop icon. Harry Styles gave a nod to Elton John’s 1975 Dodgers Stadium performance in a completely blinged out Dodgers uniform. Styles didn’t miss a beat and the costume was almost a perfect replica of the original.

Rita Ora as Post Malone

Continuing the trend of celebrities dressing up as other celebrities, Rita Ora showed off her impressive rendition of Post Malone. Ora shed her usual glam for face tattoos, curly hair and a grill. 

Paris Hilton as…maybe a Furby?

At first glance, Paris Hilton looked like she was some sort of glamorous owl but upon further investigation, it appears her costume is actually the really scary toy from the 90’s that would sometimes turn on unbidden. Hilton said on Instagram she dressed up as her “Spirit Animal,” with a unicorn emoji. Both outdated trends that never went away? Got it!

Olivia Munn as Peik Lin from Crazy Rich Asians

It’s cool, it’s trendy, and because Olivia Munn is Asian no one has to feel weird about it! Out of all the different characters she could’ve picked, Peik Lin is definitely the most fun from the blockbuster hit Crazy Rich Asians.

Ryan Seacrest as Punky Brewster

Love him or hate him he looks adorable in pigtails. Ryan Seacrest nails his look as orphan Punky Brewster. The only question here is, who wore it better?

Halsey as Poison Ivy

G-Eazy is somewhere crying over old photos of himself and ex-girlfriend Halsey because she looks smokin’. Just covering up what she needed to legally, Halsey killed it in her Poison Ivy getup. If you got it, flaunt it and well…she got it.
