Rick Fox & Eliza Dushku are back for trouble as Zombie Bonnie & Clyde.

Fergie is Miss Universal Royalt but she COULD have turned this into a Honey Boo Boo costume. That would have been VERY topical… last year. Just go as Miley Cyrus this year.

Kate Upton looks fierce AND feminine with these not-so-subtle paintings.

10. Be sparkly. It will be terrible tomorrow, but awesome today! WP-HeidiKlum2
