Halloween is the perfect excuse to dress up as your fashion hero
Still on the search for an easy-peasy, last-minute costume idea for Halloween? Fret not—our fashion heroes are here to save the day. This October 31st, you can totally channel your favorite fashion guru in a sea of superheroes, villains, and pop culture references!
From legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld to international editor Anna Wintour, here's how you can DIY your double tap-worthy costume. The best part? Most of the items are already in your closet!
There's no denying the impact Karl left on the world of fashion. After all, the late designer was the Creative Director of Chanel for almost four decades! Sporting his look is easy—after all, Karl's signature look is composed of monochromatic sunglasses, a black blazer, and a white button-down top. If you're feeling extra, don a white wig and carry a blue-cream tortie Birman cat—Karl's most beloved pet, to whom he left a £153m inheritance after his death in February 2019.
The legendary actress and humanitarian is considered one of the most stylish women of all time—which is why we published an entire article on recreating Audrey's 5 most iconic looks this Halloween. The one outfit she's most famous for is her look in the classic romcom Breakfast at Tiffany's, where she played the role of Holly Golightly. Simply don a little black dress with a boat neckline, pearls, gloves, sunglasses, and a tiara! For more oomph, bring a cup of coffee and a croissant, too!
Marilyn, one of the most beloved actresses of all time, continues to influence the fashion industry today. She is known for her classic, vintage bombshell outfits—who can ever forget her outfit in the movie The Seven Year Itch? Hop on board a time machine to yesteryear by putting on a romantic, white halter dress—don't forget to swipe on your sultriest shade of red lipstick!
It's every fashion girl's dream to meet Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue since 1988. Live your fashion editor dreams by strutting down the road in a printed coat paired with a statement necklace. To make your look even more convincing, wear a brown bob wig, put on black sunglasses, and carry a stash of fashion magazines.
Finally, how can we talk of fashion heroes without mentioning one of the most influential women of the century? It was last 2018 when the Duchess of Sussex wed Prince Harry in a no-frills, boat neckline bridal dress, which led to the rise of minimalist wedding gowns today.
