Taking Halloween As Seriously As A Wedding

I love Halloween. I want to believe that everyone loves Halloween — like it’s a universal Tim Burton-style Christmas — and that we all come together, unified, for the sake of weirdness and costumes, zombies, vampires, princesses, and gore. I’m torn, though, on whether I love it enough to take Vogue‘s costume suggestions. For the haute couture undead look that’s all the rage, they suggest booking a professional stylist. The people of MAC, Sephora, Nars, or Henri Bendel will make you fabulous for a price. Some of these ghastly makeovers run over $200. I didn’t even spend that much for my wedding up-do! Silly and frivolous or the expensive style solution for the biggest dress-up day of the year? What’s a ghoul to do? Keep reading »

Now that Kate’s back on the market and it’s Halloween, what better time to slut it up like a reality television fame whore?! Keep reading »

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Carrie Prejean

Oh Carrie Prejean, we’ve had so much fun getting to know the former Miss California and her distaste for gay marriage in the last year. She’s become one of the most recognizable beauty queens that we’ve ever had the pleasure to see actin’ a fool on national TV! In fact, she makes the perfect Halloween costume, especially if you live in a warm part of the country and can feasibly wear a bathing suit at the end of October. (If not, a tacky white evening dress is a good substitute.) Keep reading »
