“In the real world, Halloween is when kids dress up in costumes and beg for candy. In Girl World, Halloween is the one day a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut and no other girls can say anything else about it.” If there was ever a Halloween platitude to ring true, it’s Cady Herron’s wise words in Mean Girls.

One of the most iconic scenes to come out of the film (and there were MANY), Cady Herron’s Halloween revelation is particularly pertinent when it comes to the Hollywood set, who typically champion the sexy and skimpy over the grotesque and ghoulish for the spooky American holiday. But alongside the naughty nurses and Paris Hilton’s sexy saloon girl (we think?), this year has served up its fair share of blood and guts, too. Plus a host of tongue-in-cheek costumes (Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake, we’re looking at you).

Whilst the 31st of October isn’t celebrated with the same gruesome fervour down under, the Hollywood Halloween parties have been in full swing all week long. Here, a round-up of our favourite Halloween looks from celebrities around the world.

Now stock the house with Natural Confectionery Company lollies and get ready to trick or treat accordingly.
