Twerk or treat: Miley Cyrus is Halloween costume of choice for celebrities

It was one of the most-talked-about pop-culture moments in recent weeks, so of course Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke's VMA performance inspired plenty of Halloween parodies.


Hugh Hefner, 87, and wife Crystal, 27, dressed in costume as Cyrus and Thicke. Hefner wore a black-and-white striped suit -- though we don't remember Thicke's suit having a prison number -- sported a gold chain and carried a microphone. His wife donned a flesh-colored mini-dress, waved a foam finger, did her hair up in Miley-style top knots and, of course, stuck out her tongue and twerked.

But the Hefners weren't the only ones who couldn't resist mocking Miley's musical number.

Paris Hilton, who's known her share of teasing, also took inspiration from Cyrus when she attended the Hefners' Playboy Mansion Halloween party. Instead of the flesh-colored outfit, she chose Cyrus' teddy bear-themed leotard, along with heart-shaped sunglasses -- and her foam finger was sequined.


"Twerk or treat," Hilton captioned one of her costume photos on Instagram.

And last but not least, comedian Joan Rivers pulled off a Miley Cyrus costume -- but she wasn't going for accuracy. Rivers donned a flesh-colored fat suit with two enormous faux hair knots and best of all, an artificially long tongue.


Rivers wore the costume on her show, "Fashion Police," and her co-workers spoofed other celebs. Kelly Osbourne dressed as "Mad Men" star Christina Hendricks while Joan's daughter Melissa imitated fellow host Giuliana Rancic, complete with baby Duke. Rancic herself dressed as bombshell Sofia Vergara, and George Kotsiopolous as "Girls" creator and star Lena Dunham.
