Today, as we set aside bowls of Skittles and candy corn "for the kids," some of the most inventive, gross and charming costumes have been circulating on social media. For example, Taylor Swift wore wings, Lucy Hale is the Twitter bird, and Katy Perry reminds me that I'm running low on Flamin' Hot Cheetos.

Halloween is the truest test of a celebrity's creativity, so let's see who else rose to the occasion.

Dressing your unassuming kid up in a cute costume is the only way to win Halloween. LOOK AT North West's toe point.

Beyoncé asked Blue Ivy who she wanted to be for Halloween and Blue Ivy said, duh, the King of Pop, please go fetch my microphone. At that point, Beyoncé had to be Janet Jackson to complete the story. That's how this happened.

Michelle Trachtenberg and Amber Rose went all out, as Black Dahlia and a zombie Peggy Bundy, respectively.

Liv Tyler, cleverly, is dressed as an oven with a bun in it.

Christina Milian rocked a standard chola outfit, Nicole Richie and her fam are Dalmatians (seriously, aw), and Paris Hilton keeps it cute as Minnie Mouse.

Here's Alessandra Ambrosio as a snow leopard. And is that Karl Rove with Kelly Osbourne?

Rachel Zoe is the queen of this festive bunch.

Mario Lopez shows us how to not be creative on Halloween, and Kate Hudson shows us how to be sexy.

Jessica Alba is Slash, and Molly Sims went the retro route.

Monica and her kids had fun with makeup, and Tamera Mowry is one adorable astronaut.

Oh, Matt...
