It’s been another busy week for the A-list, with Halloween providing the perfect excuse for posting more pictures on the internet.

Kim Kardashian showed off her little Frozen fans, while Mariah Carey harked back to more mermaid-y days. Taylor Swift revealed one of the best celebrity fancy dress throwbacks of our times, and Alexa Chung posed for pumpkin pictures.

Naomi Campbell and Jessica Chastain both had interesting photo shoots, and Lena Dunham revealed a past sexting fail, which to be fair, is clearly a fail on the part of the recipient.

See all the delights from the week in our gallery, below.

  • Fan of the Dirty Martini, Gwyneth Paltrow?

    I think there's been a misunderstanding.. Or has there?!? #amfAR #inspirationgala


  • Lady Gaga gets jazzed about the amfAR Inspiration Gala

    Thank you VALENTINO for my beautiful blush dress. It was elegant but comfortable, made it easy to just get lost in the jazz.


  • ... and makes a purchase for a good cause

    #amfar after the auction. Got a print of Liz Taylor for a good cause. She's flipping the bird in a cropped pant with hoop earrings in front of a limousine. So basically I bought a mirror. Ha!


  • Someone out there recognises this Lena Dunham picture

    #tbt to summer 2010 when I forced my mom to take a photo of me that I could "casually" text to the dude I liked. He didn't respond so now I'll share it with 2.1 million people. Live a little!

    Words cannot describe how amazing this young lady has been over the years ..

My love and thoughts go to kirsty's parents and sisters as this inspirational young lady will be missed ... My heart and love goes to Kirsty for letting me be a small part of your world over the years.. Rest in peace
