Today is officially Halloween, but plenty of ghouls, ghosts, and goblins came out to play this weekend. In lieu of a standard smoky eye or a classic red lip, celeb and model glam squads were tasked with creating full-on characters.
Thanks to makeup guru Pat McGrath, manicurist Jin Soon Choi, and hairstylist Sandy Hullett, Marc Jacobs was unrecognizable as Stacie the female bodybuilder—hashtagging his many photos #dragisnotforsissys. And for those who think a killer costume is all fun and games, consider Jacobs’ Instagram caption a warning before tonight's big transformation: “When your eyebrows keep melting, your scrunchie comes unscrunched, your lace front adhesive loses its grip, your lip gloss and glitter turns to paste, your feet really hate Christian Louboutin and your man is passed out from exhaustion but you just can’t let go—yet!” The designer even opted for French tips. Now, that’s commitment.
Zoë Kravitz teamed up with actor and rumored boyfriend Karl Glusman to pull off a Princess Peach and Luigi couples costume. (That makes their relationship official, right?) The Super Mario Bros. duo bumped into Trevor Andrew, better known as Trouble Andrew, who went as—what else?—the GucciGhost (the same last-minute costume that started the ex-Olympic snowboarder’s sojourn into high fashion circles three years ago). Katy Perry got political (and presidential) as Hillary Clinton, coolly sipping a vodka martini in hair and makeup—which is basically how we imagine HRC preparing for a debate with The Donald IRL.
There was no shortage of sexy with Devon Windsor and Martha Hunt playing the role of Elvira Hancock from Scarface for the night, while fellow Victoria’s Secret models Sara Sampaio, Romee Strijd, and Taylor Hill went down a decidedly scarier road.
But the troupe that took home top prize this year by proving that punk is anything but dead is the Gerber bunch. (Though Beyoncé, Blue Ivy, and Tina Lawson certainly slayed with their Salt-N-Pepa throwback.) Rande, Cindy, Kaia, and Presley ditched their all-American good looks in favor of inky bands of liner, piercings, and rainbow-streaked hair that were more London’s East End than Malibu. When your mom’s a supermodel and your dad owns a tequila company, the possibilities for beauty debauchery are endless. Here’s hoping the teens had a family-sized bottle of Bioderma Créaline ready and waiting at the end of the night to wipe away any memory of partying with the rents.
