The stars went all out while celebrating Halloween. From the sexy to the scary to the silly, music’s biggest names brought their A-game with their costumes this year.
After slaying with her Toni Braxton costume, Beyoncé channeled Florence Griffith Joyner, the Olympic sprinter who still holds the world record in the 100-meter dash. Queen Bey donned FloJo’s classic one-legged purple leotard. Meanwhile, JAY-Z dressed as fellow sprinter Tommie Smith, bowing his head and throwing his black gloved fist in the air, like Smith did to protest racial injustice at the 1968 Summer Olympics.

Bey’s Boo Bash also brought out Bruno Mars, who channeled Jimi Hendrix, and Usher, who shook it like a Polaroid picture while dressed as André 3000 from the “Hey Ya!” video. Diddy faced his fears as Pennywise the Dancing Clown from Stephen King’s horror novel It, the same one that scared him on “Ellen.”
Across the pond, Rihanna attended Rita Ora’s Halloween party in London as a sexy skeleton in pink skull face makeup with a black patent leather bustier.
The families also got in on the fun together. Fabolous and his fam transformed into the Jetsons for their annual Halloween photo, while Justin Timberlake, his wife Jessica Biel, and son Silas were a superhero Lego family. Ciara and her husband Russell Wilson, as well as daughter Sienna and son Future, took it to Wakanda in their Black Panther-inspired outfits, which got the stamp of approval from Lupita Nyong’o herself.

The couples also showed out. The Weeknd and Bella Hadid were Beetlejuice and Lydia, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen channeled royalty with their Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth tributes, and Kelly Rowland and husband Tim Witherspoon were a couple of Black Panthers.
While Kim Kardashian and her sisters dressed as Victoria’s Secret Angels, her kids channeled their famous father. Saint West went as Kanye from the “I Love It” video, dressed in his boxy costume with oversized slides, while North donned a Fiji water bottle like her dad did while performing the song on “SNL.” They were joined by their cousins, Penelope and Reign Disick, in matching outfits.
