Top 5: Fashion Icon Halloween Costumes

October 28, 2009

Put aside your sexy witch get-up this Halloween and channel a fashion
icon. Herewith, our picks and tips to throwing together a quickie
costume worthy of a freaky fashionista.

Coco Chanel
yourself a short curly bob, wear a black and white skirt suit, and pile
on loads of pearls.

Karl Lagerfeld
Spray your hair stark white then pull
it all back in a low ponytail. Throw on a black suit with a white
button-up shirt and skinny tie. Accessorize with fingerless gloves (you
can cut your own from a black pair), sunglasses and rings just along the
top half of your digits.

Paint your face a shade of orange (think
spray tan gone wrong), give yourself a short, brushed back bouffant
(a.k.a. Donald Trump) and wear a white suit. Put five stuffed animal
pugs on leashes to pull behind you.

Lady Gaga
Put on a platinum blonde wig and top it
with the weirdest headpiece you can find. Don a bodysuit with tights
(heres where you recycle sexy witch), big round John Lennon-like
sunglasses. If youre feeling particularly ghoulish, splash some fake
blood on yourself to mimic her spooky VMA performance.

Grace Coddington and Anna Wintour
Grab a friend and
go as the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of Vogue. For Grace,
frizz-out your hair, white-out your brows, wear loose dark clothing with
clunky leather sandals and top-off with a red lip. For Anna, its a
bobbed wig with bangs, conservative floral shift dress worn under a fur
coat and oversized shades.
