Paris Hilton loves to put on a great Halloween costume.

Halloween isn't just for trick-or-treaters. Celebrities love to dress up for the occasion to either join their children in the festivities or attend their own adult Halloween parties. Listed below are ten celebrities who have gained recognition for wearing the best Halloween costumes over the years.

Heidi Klum

Heidi is well known for having over-the-top costumes when it comes to dressing up for Halloween. In 2010, she was almost unrecognizable as she towered over everyone while hosting a party in a blue and red "alien transformer" ensemble.

Kate Beckinsale

Kate never skips out on a fun night of dressing up for Halloween. Sporting a 'Bride of Frankenstein' costume in 2010 garnered quite a bit of attention for the English actress, and left onlookers wondering just how long it took to do her hair.

Ashley Greene

In 2010, Ash kept her costume simple but still quite sexy in a feathery peacock ensemble. If you're unsure what to dress up as for the occasion - pick an animal and make it sexy!

Audrina Patridge

Many female celebs love to show off their toned abs, and in 2009, "The Hills" hottie did an impeccable job. Possibly inspired by the old sitcom, 'I Dream of Jeannie', Audrina donned herself in a contemporary genie costume with gold earrings to polish off the look.

Jessica Alba

In 2009, Jessica Alba dressed up as 'Dora the Explorer' and even sported a map from the cartoon to complete the costume.


If anyone can pull off dressing up as an Egyptian icon, it's Fergie. In 2009, the Black Eyed Peas singer dressed up as 'Cleopatra' and struck a pose frequently with her arm at a 90 degree angle, to fully endorse the ancient Egyptian look.

Miley Cyrus

In 2009, Miley went for a simple and sweet look dressing up as 'Pocahontas'. During the time, she was still working on trying to steer her career away from the squeaky clean Hannah Montana image. But she wanted her fans to know she's still wholesome underneath by dressing up as Disney's portrayal of the heroine.

Paris Hilton

In 2006, the hotel heiress wanted to show off she held no reservations about the law - sort of. She donned herself in a sexy cop uniform, gathering jaw dropping stares from friends and fans.

Christina Aguilera

In 2005, pop singer Xtina attended a Halloween party with dressed up as a very sexy nurse accompanying her then newly wed husband, Jordan Bratman. The bright red lipstick she wore matched well with the white and red scanty health care ensemble.

Lindsay Lohan

In 2005, Lilo hopped on the bandwagon of taking a professional's uniform and adding a sexy twist to it for Halloween. Dressed to impress, Lilo donned an original sexy firefighter costume that year. You see plenty of sexy nurse and french maid costumes on Halloween, but how many sexy firefighters do you ever see?
