Although Halloween is technically still a few days away, you all know that Halloween parties in Hollywood (and everywhere else) are already well underway!

Celebrities have already started flaunting their early Halloween costumes, and we can’t help but gather them in this post. These pictures are a great source of costume ideas for extreme procrastinators, those who still have no idea what to wear on Devil’s Night, or those who have a bunch of Halloween parties to attend.

We love how many of these dresses are just the best for Halloween, aren’t they? Our favorites are Christina Milian as a confectionery queen, Kim Kardashian as a mermaid, and “Queen of Halloween Costumes” Heidi Klum as Cleopatra. Everyone is a distant second compared to Heidi!
