Creating a buzz: Beyonce looked adorable in a bumble bee costume as she left the Darby restaurant in New York last night

She may be due to give birth in February, but Beyonce is hardly the type to allow her growing baby bump get in the way of dressing up for Halloween.

The 30-year-old star even put her changing shape to her advantage, choosing a costume which would make the most of her rounder figure.

The Run The World singer donned yellow and black stripes to become an adorable bumble bee.

Teaming her puffed-out gilet with some striking bee-striped heels, Beyonce's eye-catching outfit made her unmissable as she left the Darby restaurant in New York last night.

The star showed off her toned legs in some very brief black shorts, and completed her outfit with a cute antennae headband.

Beyonce avoided anything clingy to show her changing figure too clearly, having recently sparked questions due to her bump's marked absence from her latest music video, Party.

Not to be outdone, Hilary Duff, who is due to give birth to a baby boy in March, went undercover in a burglar's outfit alongside her husband, NHL star Mike Comrie.

The pair matched their ensembles almost exactly, both wearing black and white striped tops, black trousers, black woolie beanies and painted-on black eye masks.

As a further touch, 24-year-old Hilary carried a brown bag with a large dollar sign drawn onto it.

On the run? Hilary Duff- who is due to give birth to a baby boy in March- looked ready to rob alongside her husband Mike Comrie as they made their way to Halloween party in LA last night

They were clearly feeling more in the mood for giving than robbing however, as the thoughtful couple brought a cake along to the LA Halloween party they were attending.

She may be famous for her revealing selection of on-stage outfits, but Christina Aguilera was well and truly covered up for Halloween today.

The 30-year-old star wore a white sweatshirt, black leggings, boots and a black hat as she took her son Max, nearly four, out to a Halloween bash.

Only a skull and crossbones design gave any indication that the singer was joining in the Halloween fun.

She was joined today by Max's father Jordan Bratman, who the singer split with more than a year ago.

But they were both outshone by Max who looked ultra cute in a Lancelot chain mail outfit.

Meanwhile, over in New York City, actress Naomi Watts had made much more of an effort in a brightly coloured clown's ensemble.

The 43-year-old Australian actress went all out for the spooky holiday with a face of full make-up, with oversized clown shoes completing the look.

As she strolled through Manhattan, she was followed by partner Liev Schreiber who was unrecognisable in a full length black grim reaper's outfit.

He carried son Sasha, four, who was appropriately dressed in a black outfit adorned with skull and crossbones design.

Meanwhile, his little brother Samuel, two, was pushed along in his stroller by his famous mother who carried a big yellow bag on the back, perhaps for the family's trick or treat goodies.

Earlier Naomi was spotted without make-up as she took her brood for a day's trick or treating.

Wrapped up against the New York cold, she wore a grey hat, scarf and coat as she and her sons helped themselves to some sweet treats from a large bowl of candy.

Over in Los Angeles, Nicole Richie, 30, also dressed up - sporting an impressive witches hat teamed with a black sweater and cropped black leggings.

However, she ensured she kept on her trademark oversized sunglasses for the day out.

Her children Sparrow and Harlow looked adorable in fancy dress, with Sparrow, two, in a bright pumpkin outfit and three-year-old Harlow, wearing a bright pink fairy princess costume.

Meanwhile, new mother Selma Blair adopted a more devilish theme as she sported a black nose and what appeared to be red horns today.

She wore a black vest top and trousers as she wheeled her three-month-old son Arthur through her Los Angeles neighbourhood.

And even Mario Lopez's one-year-old daughter Gia was getting into the spirit of things.
