Adele in Velvet, Bieber in Latex and The Riverdale Ladies as DC’s Leading Vixens: Halloween 2023

As always, the blog-o-sphere looks to our brightest and best celebrities for Halloween costume inspiration; we look to them, hoping to see some latex in the costuming mix. This year, we were treated to a few tickles of our favorite textile, among some scene-stealing looks, with Hollywood’s A-list mostly dressing like iconic characters.

Manning her Las Vegas residency until…Adele channeled her best Morticia Addams with jet-black hair and a velvet dress. As much as we might pine over latex when we don’t see enough of it, one could argue that velvet is another material lacking in present mainstream couture.

Camila Mendes, Madelaine Petsch, and Lili Reinhart often team up in some trio-stealing Halloween costume reveal. This year, they suited up as DC powerhouse ladies Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn. It was Reinhart who gave us one of the most wonderful glimpses of latex costuming dressed as she was in her red-and-black Harley Quinn recreation.

Zoë Kravitz and Channing Tatum came recreating the concept (at least) of Rosemary’s Baby; Tatum in a sky-blue onesie, dressed as the demon child, Zoë as a short-haired Mia Farrow in a white nightgown with a knife. Demi Lovato was dressed as Snow White, her perfectly recreated costume sporting a revealing open decollete, Paris Hilton went dressed as Britney Spears from her “Toxic” video, and Mike Tyson dressed as a bee.

Heading to the Vas Morgan & Michael Braun party, Justin Bieber and his missus, dressed as The Flinstones characters, Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm. Hailey gave us another treat of latex couture, wearing a neon green latex top and a blue miniskirt; Justin was in fuzzy shorts with bones drawn across them.

And not that she wore latex (and speaking of velvet!), but we can always count on Heidi Klum to bring the costume A-game. This year, she was dressed as a peacock, a cadre of Cirque du Soleil’s acrobats around her. She came dressed in a blue velveteen jumpsuit with added prosthetics that looked just like a bird’s beak and feet. Her husband, Tom Kaulitz, dressed as an egg.

Who came first? Who cares?
