When it comes to Halloween, the Today show doesn’t mess around. On Oct. 31, all the hosts showed up as classic Saturday Night Live characters! Matt Lauer, Natalie Morales, Kathie Lee Gifford, Hoda Kotb and even Savannah Guthrie donned the best and funniest costumes for the show!
‘Today’ Show Celebrates Halloween In ‘Saturday Night Live’ Costumes
Every year, the gang of the Today show dresses to impress for their Halloween special. This year, their outfits were inspired by Saturday Night Live, which is celebrating their 40th anniversary!
First up, Willie Geist and Tamron Hall transformed into Will Ferrell and Cheri Oteri’s Spartan Cheerleaders! They were so amped up and excited, we thought it was Will and Cheri!
Natalie shocked everyone by walking out as Molly Shannon’s Mary Katherine Gallagher! She was totally awkward and even smelling her armpits just like the classic character!
Possibly the best of the Today show was Kathie Lee and Hoda. They were Wayne and Garth from Wayne’s World. It was EPIC! They really won the crowd over.
Matt, who always has the funniest costumes, became the nerdy, androgynous character, Pat!
Savannah, who is still on maternity leave, returned to the show for the Halloween gathering. Along with Barbara Bush, the host donned those hilarious mom jeans from Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s SNL sketch.
Al Roker became one half of The Blues Brothers, and he sang, too!
Best Halloween ever? We think yes!
‘Today’ Show Always Has Epic Costumes
Last Halloween, the Today Show gave the crowd a big laugh when they all stepped out in Baywatch costumes — it was hilarious. We have to say, seeing Matt posing as Pamela Anderson was the best part! He wore the famous, tight, skimpy red bathing suit with boobs! Seeing him wearing a blonde wig and makeup was priceless!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers, who had the ultimate costume on the Today show? Let us know.
