There’s something so alternate universe-y about celebrities dressing up as other celebrities for Halloween that sends our minds into an obsessive tailspin. Enter Nicole Richie and Kelly Osbourne costumed as two eras of Jennifer Lopez. Sure, normies like us dress up like presidents and popstars left and right and something something people are people, but it feels, to us at least, very much like if you dressed up as that kid from your Spanish class or the dude who swipes your card at the gym. That isn’t to say it isn’t awesome or hilarious (holy EFF Joan Rivers as a cig-toting Suri Cruise) or the resemblance isn’t uncanny, it just makes our heads a little itchy.
Our simpleton shock factor aside, we really appreciate that these ladies went for different stages of J.Lo. Nicole (alongside hubby Joel Madden as author Hunter S. Thompson) opted as the “I’m Real” pink velour sweatsuit donning Jenny from the block. Complete with blinged out hoops, gradient tinted sunnies and a deep golden-brown tan nearly matching a slicked back sandy brown bun, Richie was the spit and image of early aughts J.Lo. Kelly went a little more contemporary as the iced out glamazon we know today. Short skirts, voluminous coiffures, and a heavy-handed dose of GLITZ have all become signature to Jennifer Lopez’s style of late. The question remains, though, who did J.Lo better?
