In Their Shoes: 12 Celebrities Are Other Celebrities for Halloween

ALTRecent years have seen a boom in pop culture Halloween costumes. No longer is being a skeleton acceptable, or a mummy, a vampire, or any other number of classic ghouls. (Well, being a vampire is okay if you’re one with a name, like Bella Swan or Eric Northman.) Instead, you have to be Spaghetti Cat or Khal Drogo or Lindsay Lohan. Anything found on the Internet is fair game, anything generic is off limits — sayonara Black Cat and Fairy, hello Kim Kardashian!

But this trend isn’t just popular with us regular folk, Hollywood is getting in on it, too. In a strangely meta twist, the past two years have seen a boom in celebrities costumed as other celebrities. And we’re not talking Golden Age of Hollywood celebs (although Kate Upton does make a killer Marilyn Monroe), we’re talking about celebrities who dress up as their peers. And, in some instances, their friends. They say imitation is the highest form of flattery… but we’re not too sure about that.

Celebrity Editor Abbey Stone hails from the fair isle of Martha's Vineyard, a lovely, vaguely dinosaur-shaped spot of land located off the coast of Cape Cod, MA, that is best known for exporting preppy salmon-colored pants. But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
