Perhaps the best part about Halloween is not the abundance of lollies - and the ensuing tummy ache that follows - or the spook-inducing parties that get thrown on Halloweekend, but rather the crazy costumes that people brainstorm, create and wear with pizzazz.
This year Adele said "Hello" to Halloween, giving her Weekends With Adele Las Vegas show over the weekend a spooky twist as she took to the stage as Mortician Addams.
As usual, she nailed the look. In a floor-length, velvety black gown featuring a long train, vampire-neck collar and sparkly silver belt, completing the look with a Morticia-esque glam — a smokey eye, cool-toned contour and a long, sleek wig, we may have found the new Morticia Addams for an Addams Family reboot!
Adele did reveal that there was one item of her outfit that she had to ditch after soundcheck,
“I was gonna wear fangs. I had some fangs made just because of Halloween — not that I’m here as a vampire or anything like that,” she told the audience. “And I did my soundcheck with them, and I had a lisp.”
“And so I thought, ‘I can’t not look like me and also not sound like me"
Several users on X (formerly known as Twitter) shared footage from the spooky show, which also featured a haunted house and jack-o'-lantern backdrop, using the hashtag #ADELEOWEEN.
In one clip, Adele revealed that she has never dressed up for one of her concerts before — and joked that she may not look like herself in photos and videos taken at the show.
“Do you mind me being in fancy dress, like, in dress-up? Do you mind?” she asked the crowd, who cheered loudly in response.
Here are some other celebrity Halloween looks we love:
Lizzo paid tribute to late musical trailblazer Tina Turner this Halloween. Donning Turner’s iconic blonde wig and sparkly black dress, the pop star nailed the look - and brought a little tear to our eye for the queen of rock ‘n’ roll.
Rock band Foo Fighters dressed up as the cast of The Wizard of Oz in a promotional video for their appearance on Saturday Night Live on October 28. Dave Grohl, of course, donned a Dorothy costume, complete with a blue and white pinafore and fluffy pooch, while the other band members went as the Tin Man, Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, Glinda and the Wizard of Oz.
