From Drew Barrymore and Kelly Ripa to the cast of 'The Talk,' see all of the daytime and morning talk show Halloween costumes from 2023
Everyone is in the spirit this week, from the celebs who stepped out at glamorous parties over the weekend, to the A-list kids ready to trick-or-treat today, to the daytime talk show hosts who've once again gone all out this year with their thematic costumes.
'Live with Kelly and Mark'
In a pre-recorded skit that aired on Tuesday's show, the couple imagined what it would be like if ABC's newest take on The Bachelor merged with one of its long-running spinoffs: Bachelor in Paradise.
Enter "The Golden Bachelor in Paradise," which saw an aged Ripa and Consuelos trying to find love on a tropical island.

'The Drew Barrymore Show'
Ross Mathews — Barrymore's "Drew's News" co-anchor and one of the members of her "Drew Crew" — also got in on the action, dressing as country superstar Dolly Parton.
Avid PEOPLE readers will probably recognize these costumes!
For the CBS daytime show The Talk's annual spooktacular celebration, hosts Jerry O'Connell, Sheryl Underwood, Amanda Kloots, Akbar Gbaja-Biamila and Natalie Morales were transformed into five of music's biggest artists for a bash that honored everything fans love about the singing and rapping legends (with a visit from JoJo Siwa and performance by Bush, too).
O'Connell dressed as Post Malone, while Underwood and Gbaja-Biamila dressed as Beyoncé and JAY-Z. Kloots' costume was a love story to Taylor Swift (check that Travis Kelce jersey!), and Morales took on Olivia Rodrigo.
'The Jennifer Hudson Show'
Jennifer Hudson celebrated 50 years of Hip-Hop and Halloween with her Missy 'Misdemeanor' Elliott costume. As seen in PEOPLE's exclusive clip from her festive episode, Hudson opened with a lip-sync performance of the rap legend's 1997 hit "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly.)"
The EGOT winner even wore an oversized, inflatable black jumpsuit, just like Elliot did in her music video for the song. Beyond her balloon-like getup, Hudson also wore a glittering gold headpiece which was attached to her sunglasses and completed the homage with her dark red lipstick.
“Now that’s Hip-Hop Halloween,” Hudson said after her mini-performance. "This is how you do Halloween. You already know who I am."
The hosts of Today started the day with songs! Each cast member dressed up as a music industry icon and performed a lip-sync performance. Kelly Clarkson helped out too, introducing the stars as if they were participants in one of her show's "Kellyoke" karaoke segments.
The morning kicked off with Carson Daly performing "Sweet Caroline" in a fringe-covered Neil Diamond costume and continued with "U Can't Touch This," covered by Craig Melvin in parachute pants as MC Hammer.
Today with Hoda and Jenna pair Jenna Bush Hager and Hoda Kotb then transformed into '70s icons Sonny and Cher. The duo glittered in their costumes as they performed a goofy lip-sync to "I Got You, Babe."
Weekend Today anchors Laura Jarrett and Peter Alexander joined in on the fun as Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, singing their duet "Happy Anywhere." They even got the stamp of approval from Shelton himself, who later sent in a video praising the pair and wishing them all a happy Halloween.
Finally, Savannah Guthrie brought the holiday home in a near-exact replica of one of Taylor Swift's Eras Tour bodysuits. Guthrie gave an energetic performance of Swift's hit "Cruel Summer," and even brought out her daughter, Vale, who was also dressed as the Grammy winner.
The hosts of The View tapped some of their favorite Disney flicks for their on-air Halloween looks. Whoopi Goldberg, Sara Haines, Ana Navarro, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and Alyssa Farah Griffin celebrated the entertainment company's 100th anniversary by dressing as iconic characters from a few of its many franchises.
PEOPLE got an exclusive look at the daytime stars' outfits with commentary from the show's Sr. producer Jamie Hammer and director Sarah de la O.
Goldberg brought the party by dressing as a Barbie doll, but she didn't go for the classic Mattel look. Instead, The View mainstay donned a blonde wig and buttoned-up dress as the Toy Story version of the plastic icon, Tour Guide Barbie.
Unmistakably, Sarah Haines continued in Pixar style as Carl from Up. According to Hammer, the host specifically chose to dress as the elderly balloon traveler because she and her kids are fans of the movie.
"So she was like, 'I want to be Carl. That's it. I want to be Carl,'" Hammer told PEOPLE. "And I was like, 'Well... there's prosthetics and this and that.' And she was like, 'I'm all in. Done!'"
Haines' full Carl look took two hours and 15 minutes for the team to complete.
Ana Navarro dressed up as a more recent Disney main character: Mirabel from Encanto. Hammer said he guessed she would pull from the magical 2021 movie since she's friends with Lin-Manuel Miranda, one of the film's creators, and John Leguizamo, one of its stars.
Later in the show, Navarro changed into another Encanto costume and became Mirabel's sister, Isabella.
Sunny Hostin covered her face and body in blue to become Neytiri from James Cameron's Avatar.
"Her costume was obviously super amazing," de la O told PEOPLE. "The show team really elevated it to a new level with her look, I think."
For her second Halloween as a View co-host, Alyssa Farah Griffin channeled her royal side and became Princess Jasmine for an episode. Hammer told PEOPLE about her sentimental choice to dress as the braided beauty.
"Alyssa has said multiple times on the show that Jasmine was the first Arabian princess — and she's half Lebanese, half Syrian, so to her as a child, it was someone that she identified with," said Hammer. "We had a feeling that was who she was going to pick, and it felt like a dream realized for her in a way."
Joy Behar split her costume into black and white as Cruella de Vil.
For one of her looks, Sherri stepped into her own version of Bey's bee-inspired Mugler catsuit. The host looked just like the singer in thigh-high black latex boots, matching gloves and bug-like sunglasses.
Shepherd showed off her keen sense for detail in a perfect replica of Bey's orange, blue and white mesh Ivy Park jersey, which she first wore during her New Jersey show. Her green camo boots matched the green camo "IV" logo in the center of the frock, just like the "Alien Superstar" singer's on-stage outfit.
Then Shepherd showed off her inner goddess with her take on Beyoncé's sequined and chiffon blue Vera Wang dress.
Of course, Shepherd had to do the disco ball-esque, robo-couture Balmain bodysuit, one of Bey's most recognizable Renaissance-related looks. The daytime personality even rode in on a silver tiled horse, similar to the one the singer sits on in her album cover photo.
Shepherd continued with the signature hold "hands" look that Beyoncé rocked on stage throughout the tour. Plus she accessorized with black gloves and a big fan to match.
The host also donned a red bodysuit, bustier-style top and harness just like the Off-White one Bey famously debuted in London.
To top it off, Shepherd invited Beyoncé's mother, Tina Knowles, on the show to talk all about her daughter's concert and upcoming film, which will be released Dec. 1. Bey's mom twinned with the TV star in a similarly sparkly red bodysuit.
“Many times in interviews, I have referenced The Wizard of Oz because so much of my life, I feel, lines up with the character,” the television personality told PEOPLE ahead of the October episode’s taping.
