It seems like Selena Quintanilla was this year’s celebrity favorite costume. Kim Kardashian transformed herself into the late Tejano singer on Halloween, Tuesday. The reality star paid tribute to Selena wearing a sexy purple version of the musician’s iconic sparkling jumpsuit — which she wore for her last performance less than two months before her untimely death.
Kim completed her Selena costume wearing a brunette wig that featured bangs to hide her blonde locks. “My fave Selena!!!!,” Kanye West’s wife tweeted along with a video of herself twirling with a microphone. Kim also shared clips of herself dancing to Selena’s 1994 hit Bidi Bidi Bom Bom.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star wasn’t the only celebrity to channel Selena this Halloween. Demi Lovato kicked off the holiday festivities early last Saturday, dressing up as the music icon. Like Kim, the Disney Channel alum wore a sultry copy of the singer’s popular jumpsuit. Demi showed off her perfect costume choice on her Snapchat account.
While the Hollywood stars took their Selena outfits out to party, actress America Ferrera dressed up as the late singer for her NBC show Superstore’s Halloween episode. Unlike Kim and Demi, who donned sexier versions of Selena’s iconic jumpsuit, the TV star wore a more modest ensemble closely resembling the performer’s original outfit. “Basically twins,” America captioned a split photo of her outfit and Selena’s. “It's Halloween on @nbcsuperstoretonight and I am v. excited about Amy's costume choice. #Selena #Halloween.”

Selena was killed in 1995 by one of her fans. Suzette Quintanilla opened up to HOLA! USA earlier this year about her late sister's legacy. “She was beautiful, she was talented, she had this way of being able to captivate you when she performed and on top of that she had this really amazing personality,” she said. “[Selena] was so down to earth and I think that people can relate to that. And unfortunately people can relate to the fact that she was taken way too soon, she was murdered, I think it just plays a small factor in the fact of why we are still talking about her today."
Selena, who was recently honored with her first-ever Google Doodle, is set to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday, November 3 — a date which will be proclaimed as “Selena Day” in Los Angeles. The Como la Flor singer’s family, actress Eva Longoria and L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti are scheduled to attend the Hollywood event in front of the Capitol Records building.
