Jessica Alba has two costumes for Halloween 2016.

Jessica Alba is planning an Absolutely Fabulous-inspired costume for Halloween.

The Hollywood actress and her friend Kelly Sawyer have taken inspiration from the British TV programme for the upcoming celebration, and plan to dress up as characters Edina and Patsy.

The two characters, who are played by Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley in the hit comedy series, graced cinema screens earlier this year (16) in the Ab Fab spin-off movie. Known for their over the top fashion, Jessica can’t wait to get her “sweetie darling” on as Edina.

“This year we're going to go as Ab Fab," she divulged to The Hollywood Reporter. "I get to be the crazy one. The absolute nut job."

She’ll also be dressing up with her kids to go trick or treating. Jessica is mum to daughters Honor, eight, and Haven, five, with husband Cash Warren.

"My daughter really wants me to go as Shimmer and Shine with her, so I have to be a genie with blue hair," she said of the Nickelodeon cartoon.

Halloween is a big event for celebrities, with stars like Gwen Stefani, Heidi Klum and Lauren Conrad impressing year after year. German model Heidi even hosts an annual bash to celebrate the spooky holiday.

Stars in England got into the spirit early, dressing up in costumes for the annual Unicef Halloween Ball on 13 October.

Heiress Jemima Khan caused a stir in her outfit, dressing up as Melania Trump being groped by a life-sized torso of her husband Donald Trump. She held a placard baring the words "Make America great again! Trump 2016. Vote on 28th November!!!" in a further dig to the U.S. Republican presidential candidate.

Also at the event was Princess Beatrice, who rocked a feline mask and Gillian Anderson who went as a sexy milk maid, complete with fishnet tights.
