Rate the celebrities (and Paris Hilton): Who wore the best and worst costumes this Halloween? Add to ...

Another Halloween come and gone and still no visit from the Great Pumpkin. As consolation prize, we have the annual parade of Hollywood stars who insisted on dressing up to go trick-or-treating and pose for the paparazzi. Here’s a look at this year’s best and worst celebrity costumes.

PARIS HILTON

Here we have Paris Hilton at the Treats! Magazine Third Annual Trick or Treats Halloween Party in Los Angeles. Paris certainly didn’t put much effort into assembling her sleazy nurse costume (most likely it simply came from her closet), but she gets points for owning up to her public reputation. Grade: B+

JEREMY PIVEN

The former Entourage star seemed weirdly infantile wearing a thirties-era gangster costume at the Treats! bash. Who was he supposed to be? John Dillinger? Baby Face Nelson? His costume looks like a last-minute grab from the studio prop department, right down to the toy gun. Grade: C

DEREK HOUGH AND RYAN SEACREST

Here again, we have two people who dressed at the last minute to make the Treats! party. Dancing with the Stars hoofer Hough appears to have opted for some sort of elf creature, or possibly a punk-sprite; American Idol’s Seacrest looks to be a cross between Oliver Twist’s Artful Dodger and a car salesman. And didn’t he wear that same jacket to host The Million Second Quiz? Grades: Hough: C. Seacrest: D.

BETHENNY FRANKEL

Shown here at Heidi Klum’s annual Halloween event, Frankel obviously went to some effort to morph herself into Marilyn Monroe, but really, how original is that? Frankly, we expected more from a former Real Housewife of New York. Grade: C

COCO AUSTIN

Like Ms. Hilton, Coco stayed true to herself for the Heidi Klum party. Again, not much imagination to her tarty schoolgirl outfit, but the spectacles are a nice touch. Also, her outfit reminds me it’s time to check my tire pressure. Grade: B.

HEIDI KLUM

Now we’re talking. The former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model obviously spent hours getting into character as an old lady, right down to the varicose veins and crepe-paper neck. She looks great, but somewhere Seal is breathing a sigh of relief. Grade: A

LORDE

Shown here at the Vevo Halloween concert in London, the teen Kiwi pop star wins the award for this year’s best costume, and we’re not even sure who she’s supposed to be. A witch? Succubus? Stevie Nicks in her prime? Herself having a rough night? Whatever her goal, Lorde looks great and is proof that dressing up for Halloween is best left to the younger set. Grade: A.
