8 celebrity costumes that won Halloween 2019
Halloween has become more commercialized than it was before.
According to the Business Insider, in the past, people would make food offerings for departed ancestors.
“Hallow refers to the saints celebrated on All Saints’ Day, which is November 1… and ‘een’ is a contraction of “eve” or evening before,” the Business Insider reports.
Halloween thus reportedly means the night before All Saints’ Day; this is a Christian event that celebrates the departed.
The National Retail Federation revealed that Halloween spending in the U.S. is projected to reach $8.8 billion (Ksh.908billion) this year.
Fans spend lots of money on costumes, candy and parties every October 31. Below are celebrities whose spooky costumes stood out on Thursday:

The reality TV star rocked her Marilyn Monroe costume: long sleeved outfit and diamond jewellery.
She also had another costume with the under the sea theme: a sexy, very grown up Ariel from The Little Mermaid.
Ellen DeGeneres called her costume “Cardi E”
The costume was reportedly inspired by Cardi B’s character in the movie “Hustlers”.
