With Halloween only a week away, the costume planning mania has officially begun. Our creativity skills are going into overdrive as everyone tries to come up with something original and fabulous. While the typical nurse and sailor costume may be the easiest way to go, they have been overdone for years now. We have selected a list of various costumes that stand out either because they’re cute or ridiculous.
Ever since Lauren Conrad donned the white and pink flapper costume, it has been an all time favourite of mine. Not only do you get to dress up as a 1950’s iconic woman but feel glamorous as well. This look gives off the perfect fun and flirty combination.
Another classic costume that is extremely simple to replicate and will also look amazing is the Audrey Hepburn look which is seen on Nicky Hilton. All you need is a black dress, long gloves, a high bun, pearls, red lipstick and a pair of sunglasses.
Whereas a few years ago looking like the Jersey Shore cast was a huge trend, today it’s all about new reality TV shows like Toddlers and Tiaras. Celebs like Fergie have been seen impersonating these stars. Your key tools include a pink, sparkly and ruffled dress, a tiara and tons of make-up. You can also include a trophy, pacifier or teddy bear for extra detail.
Audrina Patridge brought out her fun side when she wore this adorable Madonna costume. With a white dress, black leggings, sheer gloves, lots of beads, a funky hairdo, ray bans and red lips she has brought back the Madonna we all fell in love with.
What’s not to love about Ashley Greene’s peacock costume?! The Twilight actress looks stunning in her Halloween attire. Although the dress is beautiful in itself, the additional details of the feather hair accessories, bold eye make-up and matching heels perfect the look.
Heidi Klum has been dubbed the queen of Halloween due to her immaculate and never disappointing costumes. Every year she shocks with some crazy outfit that shows off her outstanding creativity Last year’s costume of a bodysuit resembling the dead body was by far the most outrageous. She was also brought in on a stretcher while arriving at her party. I get creeped out just by looking at the picture, I can only imaging how her guests felt. We also got a sneak peek at the models costume for this year.
Even though couples costumes may be cheesy (especially Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s milk and cookies costumes), we witness them every year. Hilary Duff and hubbie Mike Combrie actually managed to look cute in their matching burglar outfits. What made it even sweeter was Hilary’s visible baby bump. Although both couples Sophia Bush and her ex-boyfriend Austin Nichols as well as Katy Perry and her ex-husband Russell Brand are no longer dating or married the outfit worn by the One Tree Hill stars replicating the previously married couple was a great one at the time.
Which costume is your favorite?
