After all, a couples' costume means double the dress-up fun—and no one does it better than Hollywood.

Want to see who made the cut? Read on… if you dare!
Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, 2013
As the Casamigos annual Halloween party hosts with the most, Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber are no slouches in the couple costume department. Their most memorable look? That time they showed up as Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose and guitarist Slash, of course!
Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita, 2014
Name a more iconic duo than Dumb & Dumber’s Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne… we’ll wait. Need a hint? Try the real-life lovebirds who brought the ‘90s characters back to life in 2014, a.k.a. Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and hubby Justin Mikita.
Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson, 2015
The celebrity mogul and the athlete go all-out for October 31, having dressed up as everyone from Grease’s Danny Zuko and Sandra Dee to Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings in years past, but our all-time favorite had to be when they channeled their inner Christie Brinkley (a.k.a. “the girl in the Ferrari”) and Clark Griswold from National Lampoon’s Vacation.
Tamera Mowry and Adam Housley, 2015
The Sister, Sister star's Mary Poppins-themed couples' costume, which saw her husband Adam Housley dressed up like chimney sweep Bert, was practically perfect in every way.
Kate Upton Justin Verlander, 2016
Model Kate Upton and baseball star Justin Verlander were the ones we wanted to sing along with when they playfully tried their hand at role-playing Grease's Sandy and Danny in 2016.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z, 2016
Bey and Jay had tongues wagging back in 2016 when they showed up at the Halloween competition as Black Barbie and Ken. They even had special 40th-anniversary edition collection boxes!
Nick and Vanessa Lachey, 2016
The Lacheys morphed into a Frozen postcard back in 2016, with the 98 Degrees crooner embodying Kristoff while his wife made for an ultra-sweet Anna. (And how cute are their pint-sized Olaf and Elsa?)
Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade, 2017
The long-time couple not only won us over with their insanely creative stint as ‘80s R&B duo Milli Vanilli in 2017, but they proved they had the moves to go along with the suits, performing a coordinated (and hysterical!) dance to “Girl You Know It’s True.”
Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor, 2017
The American Horror Story vet and the Legally Blonde star proved you don’t have to be so *matchy-matchy* to pull off a good couples’ costume. In their black, white, and red panda and jester onesies, the women not only looked warm, but they also appeared to be having a blast.
Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr., 2017
Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. have a real knack for tackling ‘80s classics. (Remember that time they went as Doc and Marty from Back to the Future?) We couldn’t have dreamed up a more perfect Duckie and Andie à la Pretty in Pink if we tried!
Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, 2017
The power couple showed off their goofy side in 2017 when they became everyone’s favorite brunch duo: avocado toast! “I just can’t resist an avocado!” Gisele joked of their close-as-can-be look.
Kevin and Eniko Hart, 2018
The Harts enlisted a few little helpers to round out their couples’ costumes in 2018 when they served up some serious adorableness as a family full of Minions.
Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas, 2018
The young couple opted to go the spooky route with their Addams Family outfits in 2018, which consisted of a dapper pinstripe suit and mustache for Joe and an all-black wig and gown complete with thigh slit for Sophie, who got further into character by snipping the flowers off of a bouquet of roses.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, 2018
It was full royal regalia for the “All of You” crooner and his lady love circa 2018 when they won Halloween by dressing as England’s first family. Chrissy fully committed to the look with a curly gray wig, a solid teal coat, and a matching top hat while John busted out a red jacket full of medals for his stint as the late Prince Philip.
Heidi Klum Tom Kaulitz, 2018
The Queen of Halloween showed her guests exactly why she earned her title at her 2018 bash when she completely transformed herself from a supermodel into an ogre, as did then-boyfriend Tom Kaulitz as Shrek.
Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, 2018
Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka are the undisputed masters of Halloween, and choosing a favorite among all the incredible costumes they’ve created for their family over the years was a Herculean feat, to say the least. After all, these two have done seemingly done it all! Star Wars? Yep. Alice and Wonderland? Check. And last year’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was no less stunning. Ultimately, though, it was their take on Disney’s The Haunted Mansion that truly did us in.
Ciara and Russell Wilson, 2019
The only thing more iconic than a great couples’ costume? A great couples’ costume that channels another iconic couple. Ciara and Russell Wilson did just that in 2019 when they recreated a scene from Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s “Apesh*t” video in the Louvre.
Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, 2020
Shawn Mendes and Camilla Cabello didn’t let COVID stop them from throwing their hat into the ring for "most creative couple" last year: Get a load of their take on Chris Hooker and Nancy Downs from witchy ‘90s flick, The Craft.
Kaia Gerber and Jacob Elordi, 2020
Modeling skills aren’t the only thing Kaia Gerber inherited from mom Cindy Crawford—it seems she also shares her parent’s love of Halloween, too! The 20-year-old and her beau completely wowed as Elvis and Priscilla Presley last year, right down to the actress's lavender eye makeup.
Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos
The talk show host found her Prince Charming in spouse Mark Consuelos early on in life (the twosome has been together for more than two decades), and they gave a nod to their fairytale romance last year in these matching getups.
