Words by JON CLARKE
Darkness falls across the land, the midnight hour is close at hand. Creatures crawl in search of blood, to terrorise your neighbourhood. Yep, it’s that time of year again. A time when shops start promoting Haribo for trick-or-treat bribery, a time when sales of bin-liners soar as parents make their children budget witch costumes, and a time when people spend around 73% of their October wage on make-up ‘fx’ and ghoulish house parties.
But none of that is why you’re here is it gents? From Margot Robbie to Emily Ratajkowski (the winner of our hottest women list), we rank our favourite female celebrity Halloween costumes over recent years.
Sit comfortably guys, there’s lots of latex and bare skin …
5. Perrie Edwards as Poison Ivy
The 24 year-old Little Mix star certainly channels her inner femme fatale in this green get-up. Born and raised in Tyne and Wear, we’ve always felt that Batman needed a Geordie villain. Their friendly accent and jovial personalities are menacingly chilling aren't they?
Perrie is currently dating Liverpool footballer Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlain. Maybe his poor form of late is because he’s kissing Poison Ivy every night. Judging by these pictures, it’s a trade-off worth making…
4. Emily Ratajkowski as Marge Simpson
“Ohh Homie!” - the famous gravelly words we’ve all heard, as Homer and Marge get it on in their dark bedroom. Frankly, if Marge was Emily Ratajkowski, she can call us whatever name she likes.
The winner of our 2017 hottest female competition, Emily demonstrates here how to do Halloween with humour. It’s not the most flattering and revealing costume we’ve ever seen, but we can look past that. After all, is this not the single hottest incarnation of a Simpson’s character you’ve ever seen?!
3. Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn
Did you know that Harley Quinn was the UK’s number one Halloween costume choice for women in 2016? This might have something to do with the fact that Suicide Squad came out that same year, and every girl in the country wanted to be Margot Robbie. Except nobody quite pulls this look off like...well...Margot Robbie. She quite simply is Harley Quinn.
It’s rumoured that Margot attended a Halloween bash in the full film costume some two months after its release. She’s like that crazy beautiful woman who you know is dangerous and completely insane, but you'd still take her out on a date wouldn't you?
2. Kim Kardashian as Catwoman
Kim Kardashian’s le derriere in a tight latex Catwoman outfit. If that sentence doesn’t excite you, we don’t know what will. In 2012, Kim attended LIV at Fountainebleau Miami Beach dressed as the 1989 Catwoman (previously played by Michelle Pfeiffer). We have to say Kim wore it better, no offence Michelle.
It’s reported that 83% of the world’s latex production was sent into overdrive, just to cover a single butt cheek. That’s why the outfit took over three months to make. Just kidding, it’s probably Gucci. Here, just enjoy the picture...
1. Kylie Jenner as Christina Aguilera
If there are two music videos that have made every man close the curtains and grab a box of man-sized tissues, it’s Call On Me by Eric Prydz and Dirrty by Christina Aguilera. Satisfaction by Benni Benassi is a notable mention but we digress.
The winner of our Halloween’s hottest women list has got to be Kylie Jenner as Christina. Take a bow Kylie. You can knock on our door for a dib-dab anytime...
