Tamera Mowry looked angelic as ever as she celebrated Halloween on The Real. On the October 31 episode of the talk show, the cohosts dressed up in bold outfits inspired by Met Gala looks over the past few years. The Sister, Sister actress spoke about how she wasn’t allowed to dress up for the spooky holiday as a kid because of her religious upbringing. However, Tamera, 41, was able to find a blessed loophole.

The Real cohosts went around the table to explain their costumes. The Twitches star began. “I’m Katy Perry from the 2018 Met Gala, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion, and the Catholic Imagination. It’s based on the Versace dress that was given to her,” she explained.

Tamera then spoke about how she was not allowed to dress up for the spooky holiday because of her religious upbringing. “And when I was younger, y’all know, my family was very religious, we couldn’t really celebrate Halloween.” The actress recently mentioned how religion played into many aspects of her and sister Tia’s lives, such as making the decision to attend therapy together.

Growing up, Tamera’s school would have an annual Halloween parade for all the students to show off their fun costumes. “But, I really wanted to be in the Halloween school parade. So my mom said, ‘well, you could be an angel,’” Tamera revealed.

Tamera’s costume included larger-than-life feather angel wings, a white cropped wig, and a gold minidress with matching knee-high heeled boots, just like the “Califiornia Girls” singer’s ensemble in 2018. Katy described the look as angelic, celestial and ethereal at the time.

The rest of The Real cohosts channeled other iconic Met Gala looks for a very stylish show. Loni Love found inspiration from Lizzo’s 2019 all-pink outfit with a feathered floor-length coat. Jeannie Mai donned a replica of Rihanna’s yellow gown and matching fur shawl that she wore on the gala’s red carpet in 2015. Adrienne Bailon wore two hot pink outfits, similar to those that Lady Gaga to the 2019 gala. She wore shiny makeup and exaggerated eyelashes to complete the “Born This Way” singer’s look.
