Stars took their celebrations to London at Jonathan Ross's Halloween party last night. The British TV and radio host threw a bash that was attended by Helena Bonham Carter, Tim Burton, and Mark Ronson, among others. Kate Moss had her face painted as she arrived with husband Jamie Hince while Gwen Stefani was a bloody version of Sandy from Grease. Gwen had No Doubt bandmate Tony Kanal by her side after taking Zuma trick-or-treating earlier in the evening. Chloë Moretz was also on hand in a spooky pirate costume. There were plenty more celebrity costumes last night and over the weekend, when the celebrations got started, so make sure to see them all!

This year the spooky holiday fell midweek, so many of us had several days of celebrating, and celebrities were no different.

If you want to incorporate a little Día de los Muertos flair into your supper tonight, or simply jump on any good excuse to enjoy some Mexican flavors, take a tip from these 10 recipes.
Rihanna was last night's queen of the annual West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval. The singer was awarded a crown and a key to the city by the mayor at Greystone Manor nightclub, before heading inside to host an All Hallows' Eve bash with famous friends including Flo Rida and Paris Hilton. Rihanna skipped a costume for the festivities, instead opting for a black dress and heels, but was happy to pose with fellow partyers in their full regalia.
Rihanna took the night off work to focus on revelry, but the pop star isn't slowing down on the career front any time soon. This week, she announced that she's planning what she calls her 777 tour, where she'll play seven shows over seven days in seven different countries. The concert series kicks off mid-November, timed to the release of her upcoming studio album, Unapologetic. Rihanna also made headlines earlier this week when news that a special, limited-edition box set of Unapologetic will run fans $250.

It was a batty Halloween for Kim Kardashian and her pals in Miami last night. The group, including Kanye West, Kourtney Kardashian, Scott Disick, and Jonathan Cheban, went as characters from Batman, with Kim and Kanye taking the lead as Catwoman and Batman. They arrived at LIV Nightclub, where they not only celebrated the spooky holiday, but also belatedly marked Kim's 32nd birthday. While Kim, Kanye, Kourtney, and Scott were busy with their costumed festivities in Florida, Khloé got to work in LA. She made her debut as the new host of The X Factor with Mario Lopez, and after wrapping up the live show, quickly headed to the Staples Center to watch her husband, Lamar Odom, play in the Clippers game. Khloé was on Kim's mind, though, since she tweeted, "Omg!!! I'm literally crying! Khloe looks beautiful on the X Factor!!! Not sure why I'm crying, just so proud of my little sister!"
