It's Halloween! On a Monday!!! What's so awesome about this and triple exclamation-worthy is that all of the CELEBratory parties happened this weekend (to allow for sleeping-in while still in your superhero makeup or sexy leopard Snuggie, a'la Snooki in Vegas), and now our toiling, tricked-out fingers can TREAT you with the finest of Halloween costume roundups. From the Mexican food-catered environs of Kate Hudson's Palisades party attended by everyone from Leslie Mann dressed as Kreayshawn (SHE AIN'T BASIC) and Nicole Richie as JLO to Glee parties featuring Lea Michele as a white swan and Amber Riley as Nicki Minaj. Among the more colorful costumes, Kim Kardashian was a flame-haired Poison Ivy and Mandy Moore was utterly unrecognizable as a hair metal rocker. But what about Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and all the rest of the celebrity gang? Right this way my pretties, MWAAAA HAAAA HAAAAA!

Winter Boots from Hunter, Loeffler Randall, Ilse Jacobsen, Timberland, and Vivienne Westwood + Melissa to warm your footsies.
With snow already in the forecast up north, we think it's time to find the perfect pair of winter boots before it's too late and our humble landscape has been transformed into a freakish arctic tundra. (This seems to happen every year and we're NEVER prepared.) We've done the whole black rain boot thing and have had more than a number of normal boots destroyed by the elements, so we've hunted high and low all over the vast expanse of the interwebs to find you the cutest boots suitable for the coolest temps and most inhospitable of weather-challenged days. We're talking pretty pairs that you'll want to wear on sunny days too.
Not to be dramatic, but this has been Beyoncé's YEAR. She broke the news of her pregnancy at the 2011 VMAs, gave THE MOST KILLER performance at the Billboard Awards, and continues to release one stylish music video after another. We can BARELY keep up with Pregnancé, so in her honor, we have three to-die-for costumes that you can wear this Halloween—and, yes, two of them include a super sexy baby bump. So take THAT, other boring hot chick costumes. *finger snap*

The '60s-inspired looks from the "Countdown" video were sooo uh-mazing that we knew we had to cop one of them for Hallow's Eve. Our fave was the shot of multiple Beyoncés in primary color mock turtleneck leotards with a wide-brim black and white hat. Gather your girls (and gams!) to re-create this look in a snap, and don't forget some choreographed dance moves. (Pregnancé belly optional.)

What the WHAT? We just peeped Justin Bieber's Instagram, and were greeted with, um, this. The Biebs. Wearing a robot arm. And spiky hair. We barely even recognized our dude with his hair so closely shaved on the sides and his strands sticking straight up, but also WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT?! There's no caption on either of these photos and our imagination is running WILD trying to figure out what's going on here. He's also sitting in room filled with rocking horses (???) wearing acid wash harem pants, lace-up boots, a long white tee, and a black vest. There's also some cray wallet chain (possibly suspenders?) happening, but we won't question it. What we WILL question, though, is why JB is nibbling on his robot thumb. That cannot taste good.
The metal hand looks like it lights up (kind of SWEET) and extends from his fingertips to his elbow. Even though we're utterly confused, we will say one thing—it reminds of us of ANOTHER robot hand we've seen before!
The week of All Hallow's Eve is upon us! Only a few more days remain for you to secure your Halloween costume, and as the big night approaches, we're offering up some fool-proof outfit ideas that will have you turning heads (and we do mean a full Exorcist-style 360; it is Halloween after all). While she may have opted for normal human clothes while concentrating on a full-blown skeleton face for her own costume, Katy Perry's day-to-day style is a veritable hotbed of Halloween inspiration. With an the armful of music video releases and her status as a dress-up mastermind, it wasn't hard to pinpoint a few show-stopping (AND easily replicable) KP looks.

Katy's charmingly awkward alter ego Kathy Beth Terry gets a glam '80s-tastic makeover in her 'Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)' music video, and we found all the tools you'll need to achieve one of your own. Slip into a whole lot of neon in this magenta crop top and lime green skirt (or this one), right down to the mis-matched patent pumps (don't worry, the heels are the same height, so you won't be wobbly!). Swipe on some colorful frosted makeup, envelope your teased up crimpy 'do in a cloud of Aqua Net (for authenticity), and don't forget your party cup!

OK, party people, we're getting CLOSE to Halloween, and we mean close to the week-of when everyone starts to panic and stores run out of costumes. BUT never fear, we've got your monster costume on lockdown. MONSTER, you say? Ohhhh, yes. It's not really Halloween anymore, people, it's GAGAWEEN! Thus, we present a plethora of Lady Gaga-inspired looks that will help you pay Little Monster homage to Mama Monster's biggest style hits. From a fancy side-ponytail zombie to smoky Jo Calderone, there's a paw-pumping look for everybody (including a few for you lazy monSTAHS). When people ask who you're dressed up as (duh, as if they wouldn't know), just tell 'em you were born this way, OK? Yeah, we went there.
1. HAIR MONSTER

So, a running motif in the costume lexicon of Our Lady of G is HARRRRR, and lots of it. Gaga was recently seen out and about in London in this V-shape hair dress and matching hair sombrero, which also has the addition of truly Halloween-y accessory, a handheld picture of The Bride of Frankenstein. This look requires a little bit of work, in that you'll need to glue copious amounts of hair onto a floppy hat and leotard. (It doesn't have to be exact, just get it on there.) But you can throw your own hair under a mint-green wig and add some crimson lips and dark shades. Voilà! Extend your arms to wee babies on their trick-or-treating routes and bellow, "COOOOOME TO MAMA MONSTAAAAAAAH!"
