Halloween costumes in the news

The Halloween parties are still going on in some parts of the world, but many celebrities were out days ago, making sure their costumes were seen.

Not surprisingly, some big names were copying the "bad girl" of the moment, singer Mylie Cyrus whose skimpy outfits and suggestive moves have been the subject of some controversy in the entertainment world.

Paris Hilton was seen wearing a costume first worn by Mylie during her outrageous performance at the MTV Video Music Awards in August. Many said Paris looked better than Mylie. What do you think?

Mylie, of course, is famous for her habit of sticking out her tongue when she smiles. That was the inspiration for another costume that is getting a lot of attention this morning. Yes, Jenny McCarthy, a well-known model, actress and author, actually dressed up as Mylie's tongue.

As for the best Halloween costumes, as usual, they probably go to ordinary house pets – or to the owners who dressed them. Here are three examples from this year.
