A slew of B-listers attended the Casamigos Tequlia Halloween party this weekend. Paris Hilton was there in her traditional trashy costume. I swear she has a whole closet full of them. Halloween is her favorite holiday. Kate Hudson attended without a full-on costume, but she did have her face painted as a Mexican death mask. I suspect this will be a popular costume for many after the recent children’s movie, The Book of Life, brought Dia de los Muertos to theaters.
Kate is not Mexican, yet she has her face painted in sugar-skull mode. Is this offensive at all, or is she simply showing her appreciation for the Mexican culture? Several US cities hold Day of the Dead celebrations where people who are not Mexican get their faces painted at the festivals by Mexican artists. So this is an honest inquiry: Is Kate’s costume on the same level of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the US? You tell me. I’m all ears. Some people do find it offensive when non-Mexicans wear this makeup.
The rest of the celebrities in attendance were pretty try hard. Paris dressed as Minnie Mouse and had a ball for the paps. Elisabetta Canalis wore a Wizard of Oz Dorothy costume. Paris was probably upset she didn’t dream that one up, so she could carry one of her many tiny dogs. Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber came as fancy hippies. Molly Sims was … very pink? Chord Overstreet dressed as a cop. A hot cop? That’s debatable.
P.S. Have you seen the Ray Rice-inspired costumes this year? Disgusting.
