2. A$AP Rocky at the Met Gala
What could be more simple, comfortable, cozy, pandemic-friendly yet filled with style than wearing a quilted blanket as your costume? If A$AP Rocky did it for this year’s Met Gala, so can you this Halloween! Besides, the outfit not only carries fashion information – the patchwork coat was designed by Eli Russell Linnetz as a tribute to the ancient American technique of memory quilting – but it also is a reminder of the importance of upcycling in fashion.
3. Cruella de Vil
The emblematic villain from our childhood movie 101 Dalmatians was turned into a live-action film entitled Cruella, released by Disney earlier this year. The new movie dives into the story of Estella, a young and very talented fashion designer aspirant living in London during the 1970s, amidst the punk rock revolution. The movie showcases amazing fashion outfits, especially the ones worn by the main character Cruella. So many costume inspirations can be pulled from this personage, so make sure to add a black-and-white wig to your favorite Cruella look.
4. Daphne from Bridgerton
Daphne is the main character in the acclaimed Netflix series Bridgerton. Set in London during the Regency era, the series portrays young debutants wearing flamboyant and extravagant gowns while being introduced to society in search of a good husband. Daphne Bridgerton wears the most enchanting outfits, mostly in blue tones, with lots of volumes, embroideries, and details, always paired with gloves and intricate updos and jewelry. The perfect scenario to gather inspiration for a fashion costume.
5. Emily in Paris
Emily in Paris is a Netflix series that portrays a typical American girl living in Paris. Emily wears the most outrageous outfits – which her French colleagues dislike – and her personality is always printed in her fashion choices. Highlights to the black gown Emily wore at the Opera, the black-and-white Vichy printed set paired with a red french beret, and her several classic tweed coats commonly matched to extravagant hats. A number of easy to recreate costume ideas can be found in this series, enjoy!
6. Britney spears
Britney has always been a fashion reference: the outfits picked for her video clips and her public appearances marked an era as most of them were quite controversial for those years. In 2021, there has been a huge fashion movement bringing back the trends from the 1990s and 2000s, a time when Britney was the ultimate pop artist, so getting inspiration from her most iconic looks is a great idea. Besides, the #freebritney has been trending for a while now, bringing Britney’s conservatorship back to the discussion. A fashion-relevant personality to get costume inspirations from.
7. Kim Kardashian in Balenciaga
Kim Kardashian’s partnership with Balenciaga and its Creative Director Demna Gvasalia comes from a long date. This year, Kim made several appearances dressed in Balenciaga: from her Met Gala look, to the Haute Couture wedding dress she wore for Kanye’s Donda listening party and her recent participation in SNL, the Kardashian sister rocked. Lots of Balenciaga looks to seek inspiration for a fashion Halloween costume.
8. Anna Wintour
Anna Wintour is forever a fashion statement: she has been the face of Vogue America for quite a long time and her position even allegedly inspired the classic Devil Wears Prada movie. Anna’s short hair and big sunglasses are her signatures, a look that represents and identifies her. The ideal go-to fashion costume idea for Halloween!
9. Harry Styles at the Grammys
The young singer is well known for being a risk-taker when it comes to fashion. For this year’s Grammy Awards, Harry wore a Gucci outfit composed of brown velvet pants, a V-neck pink striped sweater, a patterned suit, and purple feather boas. This certainly is a fun look filled with fashion information to replicate for Halloween!
10. Olivia Rodrigo
