Fashion plays a central role in Halloween, which is why it's one of our favorite holidays of the year. And this year, celebrities did it up! From fairly-tale figures and Disney characters to sexy animals and school girls, we're counting down the 10 best costumes from this year's festivities. Who is No. 1? Find out below!

Ciara looked exactly like Storm from the X-Men series at her Halloween/25th birthday bash at Haze Nightclub in Las Vegas last Friday. The singer wore a killer black leather bodysuit, complete with a bleach blond wig and crazy white contacts. We applaud her attention to details!

Snooki dressed as a pickle in Las Vegas on Oct. 30.

Jersey Shore's Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi dressed as her favorite food for a Las Vegas Halloween bash this weekend — a pickle! Last Friday, WWD revealed a sketch of her costume, and we couldn't wait to see how this drawing would transform into an actual outfit. And we weren't disappointed! Her look included a strapless green dress with pickle-shaped sequins and a light-up scepter with a pickle attached at the end. While her outfit looked flashier in real life than in the sketch, the pint-size reality star stayed modest by wearing a darker green cape over the mini. When it came to accessorizing, Snooki kept her green theme with green sparkly, strappy sandals; a green clutch; green makeup; and green nail polish on her fingers and toes. Green seems to be a flattering color on her! But what do you think?

Keira Knightley brought so many clothes with her to Rome! That's where she is for the 2010 Rome Film Festival right now, promoting her upcoming movie Last Night.

THIS IS IT, PEOPLE. HALLOWEEN IS UPON US. We have arrived at the spooky weekend where everyone let's their inner diva shine through with their costumes. That's why we've showed you different ways to dress like a diva all week — Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Ke$ha — but we'll leave you with this stunner diva to bring you into the weekend: Miss Taylor Momsen. The 'Gossip Girl' star and The Pretty Reckless singer dresses like Halloween everyday, with crazy eye makeup and crazy outfits. Here are three ways to dress like Taylor Momsen:

Taylor's black panda-like eyeliner has become her signature. And it's easy to re-create this look. Grab some Bedhead eyeliner (Taylor told Interview magazine that it's her favorite) and layer it on ... and on, and on. Swipe on some black eye shadow to fan out the black to the upper lids.
+ Eye Shadow: M.A.C Eye Shadow in Black Tied ($6.50)
+ Hair Dye: L'Oreal Super Blonde Creme Lightening Kit in Super Bleach Blonde #205 ($9.99)
+ Eye Liner: Bed Head Big Fat Fun! Eye Liner in Black ($16.00)

We're not endorsing the idea of wearing lingerie in public, but that's what Taylor Momsen does. So if you want to channel her provocative look, grab a bustier corset dress (like this one from Topshop), then sew on your own pyramid gold grommets to get the rocker Taylor look.
+ Dress: Long Line Bustier Corset ($80.00)
+ Stud Add-ons: 1/2" Gold Pyramid Studs ($6.00 for 100)

Taylor Momsen loves these shoes — her infamous stripper tip jar shoes. We felt dirty even Googling these! And we're certainly not endorsing them for you. But, alas, if you really want to get the full Taylor look from the makeup to the clothes, then these shoes will finish it off. It's not something that you could possibly rewear any other day than Halloween, but should you have the guts to go there. It's totally Taylor.
+ Shoes: Pleaser Tipjar Shoes ($57.45)

Halloween is soooooo close! We know because our cravings for tiny bags of peanut M&Ms skyrocketed today. Sadly, that means you have only a few more days to finish your costume! That's why we're showing you how to transform yourself into a hottie diva this year, D-I-Y style. So far, we showed you how to dress up as Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Ke$ha. Today, let's take a look at another one of our faves, and the ultimate Halloween diva — Lady Gaga. While every day is Halloween for Gaga, you only get one day to turn yourself into the ultimate Little Monster. Here are four ways to dress like Lady Gaga:

Wearing white after Labor Day isn't a taboo if you're Lady Gaga. Snag some white pants, a white blazer, a white bra, and put it all together to get Gagaloo's Today Show performance look, which was designed by Giorgio Armani. Don't forget to add a sparkly feather headband and some rhinestones to the bra to make it truly Gaga.
+ Blazer: Central Park West Grommet-Detail Blazer ($47.70)
+ Bra: Calvin Klein Perfectly Fit Tailored Customized Gel Lift Bra ($24.99)
+ Pants: Spiegel Signature Stretch Sateen Collection: Wide-Leg Pants ($39)
+ Headband: Sparkly Feather Headband ($6.80)
+ Rhinestones: Swarovski Rhinestones ($11.59 for 144)
+ Glue: Aleene's Glitter & Gem Glue ($3.49)

This look requires a little bit of work, but it's worth it. You need a lot of basics, like a leotard, fishnet tights, a headband, and gloves. Then, all you do is bedazzle the crap out those four pieces with iron-on rhinestones. Voila! You're Gaga. Add a long gray wig to make your look official.
+ Leotard: Basic Moves Black Long Sleeved Leotard ($26)
+ Tights: Betsey Johnson Black Solid and Knit Fishnet Tights ($18.00 for Two Pairs)
+ Wig: Gray Wavy Wig ($10)
+ Headband: Pyramid Stud Headband ($32.00)
+ Gloves: Mossimo Driving Gloves With Pyramid Stud ($17.99)
+ Rhinestones: Swarovski Rhinestones ($11.59 for 144)
+ Glue: Aleene's Glitter & Gem Glue ($3.49)

During Lady Gaga's Monster Ball tour, she wore this hot little outfit: A purple leopard-print leotard with matching sparkly purple circles drawn around her eyes. You can create this look yourself by picking up a purple leotard and using leopard print iron-ons to get the pattern on it. Then, throw on a half-yellow, half-bleached white wig, some gloves, and a pair of fishnet stockings, and you're ready to call yourself Lady Gaga. Remember to grab a pot of purple glitter and smear some around your eyes.
+ Leotard: Mirella By Bloch Double Cross Back Leotard ($31.03)
+ Iron-on Heat Transfers: Lee Hiller Designs RAB Rockabilly Leopard Print Gold and Brown Iron on Heat Transfers ($13.99 for a 10" Transfer)
+ Wig: Blonde/Yellow Two-Tone Wig ($14.99)
+ Gloves: Patricia Field 5-Finger Half Gloves ($48.00)
+ Glitter: LASplash Face Body Glitter in Purple Passion ($4.49)

We can't blame you if you don't want to prance around a Halloween party jiving to 'Monster Mash' in nothing but an itty-bitty leotard. That's why this Lady Gaga look will work for you. It's not Lady Gaga exactly, but Lady Gaga inspired. Channel her gloriously over-the-top Alexander McQueen look from the 2010 VMAs and wear a floor-length red dress. Throw on a chunky bib necklace to give it some spunk. Make your own gold feather headdress by pasting feathers on a gold headband. Finish the look with Gaga's greige nail polish, which is so. hot. right. now.
+ Dress: Victoria's Secret Flirty Muti-way Dress in Scarlet Red ($89)
+ Necklace: Brown Topaz Black Jeweled Bib Statement Necklace Set ($35.99)
+ Headband: Duo Braided Headband ($4.80)
+ Feathers: Yellow Indian Feathers ($1.49 for Six)
+ Nail Polish: Essie Nail Polish in Merino Cool ($8)

It looks like BFFs Kim Kardashian and Ciara went shopping in each others' closets. The two fashion stars both stepped out wearing the same black taffeta dress by Carven ($716, and Christian Louboutin Big Lips Leopard Print Booties ($1,635, Kim accessorized the LBD with a chain-link shoulder purse on Sept. 16 in Paris, and wore her hair in a sleek, tight updo. Ciara, on the other hand, teamed the same ensemble with two gold bracelets and a pretty red pout at the For Colored Girls premiere on Monday. We hate to pit these two gorgeous gal pals against each other in the fashion department, but if we had to choose, Kim's sleek updo sets her apart from Ciara's loose look. But we REALLY want to know what you think.

+ Who wore it better — Kim Kardashian or Ciara?

Taylor Momsen doesn't seem to be the least bit phased by the recent chatter condemning her daring wardrobe choices. Just take the outfit she wore earlier this week, when the Gossip Girl actress and lead singer of The Pretty Reckless attended a launch party in West Hollywood in an all-black ensemble — cropped leather jacket, see-through dress that exposed her bra and showed off her backside, thigh-high patterned tights, her "Slave" necklace, and patent leather boots with plenty of buckles. She also softened her typical black eyeliner and reached for red instead, and threw crimson highlights in her blond hair. Clearly, Taylor Momsen does not care what anyone thinks. Why should she? She's 17, famous, and rich, which are three things we'll surely never be.

It's Halloween week! You have just four more days to whip together an outfit ... which is basically NO TIME AT ALL. That's why we're showing you how to create some costumes D-I-Y style, so you can dress like some of the hottest divas of the year. So far, we showed you how to dress like hotties Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha. Today, let's take a look at another one of our faves: Katy Perry. It's time for a dose of glitter, "California Gurl" style, and lots of candy references! Here are five ways to dress like Katy Perry:

This is one of our top Katy Perry looks because it's so easy to pull items from your closet to make this outfit. Take a ruffle skirt (like this one by LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's) and match it with a rhinestone-covered tank (it doesn't have to be pink!). That's pretty much it! Don't forget to hit your local candy store for a Whirly Pop to make it totally Katy-icious.
+ Shirt: Old Navy Rib-Knit Embellished Tank in Think Pink ($14.50)
+ Skirt: LC Lauren Conrad Ruffle Skirt in Pink Ash ($29.99)
+ Candy: Rainbow Whirly Pop ($14.29)

Have two parties to go to and don't want to wear the same outfit? We know — it's a conundrum. Here's an idea: Recycle the rhinestone top from the first Katy look and pair it with a pair of sequin blue shorts. Add some pink earrings and high heels and you made two outfits out of one! (For a simpler look, go for denim shorts, rather than sequin ones.)
+ Shirt: Old Navy Rib-Knit Embellished Tank in Think Pink ($14.50)
+ Shorts: Blue High-Waisted Sequin Shorts ($49.99)

Katy Perry has made latex dresses HER THING this year. So, make it your own! Take a shiny spandex dress from American Apparel and cover it in candy-shape add-ons. With this look, you can reuse the dress way past Halloween.
+ Dress: American Apparel Nylon Tricot Scoop Back Tank Pencil Dress in Cobalt ($42)
+ Add-ons: Peppermint Candy Cut Outs ($4.99)

If you only want to buy one thing this Halloween, swing for a blue wig. Everyone will know you're Katy Perry, without question.
+ Wig: Blue Glamour Wig ($9.85)

If electric blue wigs are too much look for you, go for a subtler way to wear color with extensions. Katy famously wore shades of pink, purple, and blue to the Video Music Awards in September. You can get clip-in styles that are very similar.
+ Hair Extensions: 16" easiLites Human Hair Clip in Bubblegum-Pink, Blueberry-Blue and Grape-Jelly-Lavender ($7.95 each)

Mary J. Blige is highly intertwined in the fashion world, collaborating with designers like Frida Giannini of Gucci and Catherine Malandrino, and even launching a perfume in years past. But now, she is designing something totally different, and so totally Mary: Sunglasses. This month, the R&B singer released Melodies by MJB, a four-style collection of sunglasses that come in a variety of colors for $150 to $250 per pair, available now at Bergdorf Goodman and Nordstrom stores. Each style is named to represent a side of Blige's life: Showtime, Red Carpet, Incognito, and The MJ's (her signature). MTV Style recently caught up with the fashionable musician to talk about her new collection and to find out about her favorite shades ever. Find out what she said below! Read More...
