There are plenty of iconic pairs throughout history: Lucy and Desi, Sandy and Danny, Frankenstein and his bride. Whether they're real people or imaginary characters, the costume options for couples looking to dress up together are endless. Yet not all couples costumes are created equal.

From Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson's hilarious turn as the stars of National Lampoon's Vacation to Ciara and Russell Wilson's incredibly realistic portrayal of Janet Jackson and Busta Rhymes, here's a look back at the most dynamic celebrity costume duos to date.
