Spooky Season has arrived — and so have this year’s celebrity Halloween costumes.

Kelsea Ballerini kicked things off Wednesday night (Oct. 25) with her Original Donut Shop Coffee costume party in New York City, where she dressed up in one of the most popular costumes for 2023: Barbie.

And she wasn’t just any Barbie. She specifically channeled Margot Robbie’s western-wear Barbie from the Greta Gerwig-directed film, wearing a white cowgirl hat with a two-piece, hot-pink bell-bottom set and matching neckerchief — a perfect fit for the country star. (You can find the look for less in our roundup of the best pop-culture Halloween costumes for 2023.)

“HI BARBIE, HAPPY (early) HALLOWEEN,” Ballerini captioned a series of photos in the fuchsia look.

Another early adopter this Halloween is Chloe Bailey, who shared her racy take on Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones, wearing a long blond wig with a bodysuit made of metal to complete the medieval costume. She’s surrounded by dragon eggs, skulls, candles and an hourglass in the pics and is also sitting atop a throne — though it’s not quite the sword-covered Iron Throne that Dany eventually sits upon.

“I am Khaleesi, the Mother of Dragons #gameofthrones,” Bailey captioned her photo set, alongside a dragon emoji.

But Halloween 2023 is just getting started. Below, find the best costumes from musicians and celebrities, including some perfect musician-themed ideas, like Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams’ timely “ketchup and seemingly ranch” getups. See all the photos below, updating through Halloween (Oct. 31).
