Celebrities that wore controversial costumes


Mallory Kaul

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum took the phrase

“Would you still love me if I was a

worm?” to the extreme this year,

showing up as a literal worm with

her husband Tom Kaulitz dressed

as a fisherman. The reactions were

divided amongst Twitter users. One

wrote, “Is this supposed to be funny?

I didn’t laugh,” and another

said, “It’s literally so hilarious and


Megan Fox & Machine Gun Kelly

Superstar couple Megan Fox and

Machine Gun Kelly dressed as Pamela

Anderson and Tommy Lee

Jones, inspired by the miniseries

“Pam and Tommy.” Because of the

recent outcry against Jones and the

creation of the miniseries, many

thought the costumes were insensitive

and unfair to Anderson, who

spoke out against the show.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner found herself in

hot water over her sexy Jessie from

Toy Story costume. Many were offended

by the oversexualization of

a children’s movie character, one

even writing, “Oh, so now we’re

sexualizing kid’s animation, huh?”

Some other celebrities praised

Jenner in her Instagram post, including

Gigi Hadid and other

Kardashian members.

Addison Rae

Addison Rae arrived as Lady Gaga’s

iconic “Paparazzi” look from

the 2009 VMA’s. Rae fans adored

the outfit but many Gaga fans

despised it. The costume was accurate

down to the fine details, but for

some that just wasn’t enough. “Do

not give Addison Rae credit ever,

especially over something Gaga related,”

one fuming fan wrote.

Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish, who has been recently

under fire for her 11-year age gap

relationship with boyfriend Jesse

Rutherford, sent the scandal home

this year by dressing up as a baby,

with Rutherford as an old man.

Most thought this costume seemed

tasteless, especially with the accusations

of Rutherford as a groomer.

Some thought poking fun at the accusations

was brilliant.
