In 2017, Kim's costumed celebrity tributes were insane in the best way; she dressed as Aaliyah, Selena and Sonny and Cher. But her all-in-the-family tribute to one of the famous odd couples of the '80s was hard to top.

As we learned at the VMAs, Miley loves any excuse to show a little skin. And on the "one day a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it," (Mean Girls, of course!) it only makes sense that Cyrus would (for once) follow the trend. In 2013, she dressed up as Lil' Kim, wearing a seriously boob-baring costume for the holiday.

In 2013, plenty of stars stepped out in Miley-inspired Halloween costumes two months after her eye-popping, FCC-complaint-gathering performance at the VMAs. One of the best was worn by Paris Hilton, who donned a near-exact replica of Miley's gray teddy bear ensemble.

From Vogue collaborations to sitting side-by-side at Fashion Week, it's no secret that these two are pals. So close, in fact, that it was no big thing in 2014 when Kim, North, her friend Joyce Bonelli and Bonelli's son dressed up as the fiercest foursome in fashion: Wintour (Kardashian West), former Vogue editor André Leon Talley (North), Vogue creative director Grace Coddington (Bonelli) and late Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld (Bonelli's son). Chic.

With lots of lollipops, left sharks and rainbows dotting her concert ensembles, Katy Perry certainly has a look – and recreating it isn't easy. Glee stars Tobin and Ushkowitz nailed it, though, with cupcake bras, candy wrapper skirts and Perry's signature bright do in 2007.
