Kids are really stepping up their game this Halloween! Back in my day, we settled for dressing up as whatever cartoon characters were hot that year, but this year, it’s all about real famous people.
Just look at 5 year-old Kylie Rae Brooks, who slayed the internet with her Beyonce costumes. Both Kylie and her mom Diana Alvarez are Beyonce superfans; Kylie has been a fan since she was a baby, and so it came as no surprise when she asked her mom if she could dress up like Queen Bey for Halloween. Together, they recreated two of Bey’s most iconic looks.
“She kept looking at herself in the mirror,” Diana told Buzzfeed. “She didn’t want to take it off.”
Can you blame her? She absolutely slayed these looks.
Ya’ll haters corny… #KylieRaeBrooks
