Sophie Turner is the Queen of Halloween. The Game of Thrones star and her then fiancé
Joe Jonas turned heads as they celebrated the spooky holiday, dressing up as Gomez and Morticia Addams from The Addams Family.

In order to transform into the iconic character, Turner wore a figure-hugging black gown with a plunging neckline and high leg slit. She completed her look with a long black wig and dark makeup. As the gothic patriarch, Jonas donned a sleek pinstriped and slicked back his hair. He perfected his costume with a prosthetic hand on his shoulder to represent the character Thing.

The beautiful duo posted a photo of their epic costume to Instagram, captioning the shot, “Happy Halloween from Morticia & Gomez Addams.”

Halloween is on the horizon, and if you’re still wondering what to dress up as, you might want to look to Holly Willoughby for inspiration!

This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby, 37, showcased her cleavage as she channeled the infamous Morticia Addams and was swiftly inundated with compliments. The mother-of-three gave viewers a glimpse of her assets and confidently posed with her hand on her hip. The blonde beauty from This Morning gave a sultry pose to the camera, ensuring she was in the character of Morticia from the Addams Family 

Her dress perfectly highlighted her bust with a sweetheart neckline and boasted statement shoulders along with a floor-length pencil skirt. The beauty teamed her daring frock with a pair of complementing black heels and disguised her usually blonde mane under a raven black wig that she styled over to one side. 

She also opted for a long black wig and dark make-up and stood out with her red lipstick.With the help of stylist Angie Smith, the presenter transformed into Morticia Addams for the spooky special of Celebrity Juice. And didn’t she look fabulous?

Her floor-length latex dress is by William Wilde and features a flattering sweetheart neckline, figure-hugging fit and super shiny finish. With the addition of a long black wig and dramatic make-up, Holly looks just the part!

Even if you’ve seen a lot of celebrity families dress up like the Addams family during Halloween, one family that takes the holiday seriously is Nicole Richie’s. Not only does the fashion designer lavishly decorate her home with skulls and pumpkins, but she gets her whole family in on the costume fun. Over the years, we’ve seen Nicole pay tribute during Halloween to A Clockwork Orange with Joel Madden and dress up like a cat with little sister Sofia Richie, and in 2014, she and her mini mes, daughter Harlow and son Sparrow, channeled Cruella de Vil and the 101 dalmatians. We can’t wait to see what she comes up with this year!

Kate and her husband, Jamie Hince, got decked out in their Addams family best!

Wearing spooky white face paint and a shiny black wig, Moss channeled Morticia Addams quite accurately. She even sported red lipstick and oversized fake lashes, a far cry from her normal barefaced look. Sporting the head-to-toe black if not for Halloween the fashion look could pass as a normal, everyday Kate Moss outfit. Jamie Hince sported far less makeup but looked just as convincing as Gomez Addams in his maroon overcoat and side partition.
