'The Masked Singer' Season 2 Costumes Debut at Beverly Hills Fashion Show
New York Fashion Week might be over, but the looks kept coming Tuesday night in Beverly Hills as Fox feted the second season of its bonkers reality hit The Masked Singer with a fashion show celebrating the intricate and insane costumes from the returning celebrity singing competition at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills and a flashy party at The Bazaar by José Andrés.
All four of the show's judges — Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong and Jenny McCarthy — joined top Fox brass (including Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier and alternative boss Rob Wade) for the event, which debuted every costume headed to the stage beginning Sept. 25.
The vaguely terrifying looks included the following:
Egg — an anthropomorphic ovum wearing a bedazzled trench coat and a hat featuring one of its fallen brethren (a.k.a. a fried egg)
Leopard — a jungle cat in full Elizabethan dress

Tree — a tinsel-covered Christmas tree with a cartoon face
Thingamajig — a neon green furry monster in a sharp plaid suit
Fox — a steampunk cyborg forest creature
Ice Cream — a nightmare-inducing happy-go-lucky walking scoop of frozen dessert

Skeleton — a dandy undead man in a top hat
Rose — a sexy Swamp Thing-like creature in a body-hugging gown
Eagle — a bell-bottomed patriot in a fringed jacket
Black Widow — a sexy eight-legged arachnid
Butterfly — a bedazzled insect with a six-foot wingspan requiring the model to sidestep on and off the runway
Flamingo — a feathered hot pink bird
Panda — a pastel-hued bear/DJ
Rottweiler — a backwards cap-wearing dog with a six pack
Following the runway show, guests headed to the hotel's Bazaar restaurant for a party featuring the establishment's signature theatrical food, custom sketches of partygoers imagined as season two characters and a video photo booth (where the judges and Fox execs got plenty of social media content).
Season two of The Masked Singer premieres Wednesday, Sept. 25, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
