I’m not good at Halloween. I really, really want to be. But I just, I mean I don’t have the flair for a smart costume. Last year Duana went as Taylor Momsen. It was the best. And Sasha went as the Bay. Equally hilarious. A few years ago, Jacek was Will Ferrell as Robert Goulet which only means something to you if you’ve watched The Best of Will Ferrell SNL too many times. To me it only counts when you “dress up”. But every party will always include that douchebag who comes as “Sarcasm”. Have you met him?

Anyway, when it comes to costumes, or, anything that involves pretension, celebrities do it bigger than everyone else. Kate Hudson throws a Halloween party every year. All her famous friends turn up and it’s full on, like they probably hired people from Industrial Light & Magic to work on their sh-t. Particularly Heidi Klum, who actually hosts her own annual event and gets more and more elaborate with her get-up every year.

Sometimes though it’s the simple ones that are the most memorable, the cheeky ones with a sense of humour. Nicole Richie is GREAT at this. Which is why her Jennifer Lopez is my favourite one this year. I LOVE IT SO MUCH.

Because she really captured the details, you know? Details that don’t require mega engineering. So she wins...without even trying that hard. It’s a simple pink tracksuit tucked into tricked out booties - amazing, right? And the skin colour that matches her hair pulled back in a trademark JLo bun with hoop earrings and, this is my favourite, JLo’s signature clear gloss on parted lips because Jenny From The Block doesn’t close her mouth on a carpet, son! And that’s so much more clever than some zombie guts and prosthetic skin rot, even if it’s been taken directly from the set of The Walking Dead.

Here’s Nicole leaving Kate’s party and with Joel Madden on her Twitter.
