Heidi Klum’s Craziest Halloween Costumes

God bless Heidi Klum. Not only is she one of the sexiest ladies in the world, but she also seems to have quite a sense of humor. Every year, Klum hosts a balls-to-the-wall Halloween party, and challenges herself to design crazier and more over-the-top costumes. This year, she’s got two costumes going on: first, a strange money boy ,and second, a cadaver from the “Bodies” cadaver exhibition. Both are, well, weird. But that’s exactly why we like Klum. Check out the rest of her batcrackers looks from years past, too!

Halloween Inspiration Board: J. Crew’s Jenna Lyons

Stupid Controversy!

Until this week, Jenna Lyons was best known as the president and creative director of brilliant brand J. Crew. Her charming Brooklyn brownstone was featured on Oprah back in 2010, and countless times in the pages of style and interior design magazines since then. She was the subject of some controversy after a photo was published in the J. Crew catalogue of herself painting her young son’s toenails hot pink. In the past couple of days, though, Jenna’s life has been at its juiciest. A thinly veiled blind item was published that outed her as being in the middle of a divorce from her artist husband, Vincent Mazeau. Even better, this same scandalous item suggested that she was now having a lesbian affair with another woman in the fashion industry. This morning, Jenna’s love interest was revealed: Courtney Crangi, who is apparently the sister of a celebrity jeweler. I don’t have much of an opinion on this. If they’re happy, I’m happy, and happy for them. However, I doubt this will be the last we hear of Jenna and Courtney. This Halloween — and frankly, her style could be emulated any ol’ day — get your hands on Jenna’s fresh, masculine style at about 50 percent less than typical J. Crew prices. Keep reading »

Halloween Inspiration Board: MaKenzie From “Toddlers & Tiaras”

Inspiration: Princess Bea
All it takes is the fascinator, really. Read More »

“Toddlers & Tiaras” is one of our favorite trainwreck shows to watch and in the last year the TLC kiddle pageant reality show has become rather controversial. Tots dressed as movie hookers! Toddlers getting waxed! Wee ones high on Pixie Sticks! The parenting, it is questionable. The standout “T&T” regular, in our opinion, is little MaKenzie, a Southern firecracker who will not go anywhere without her beloved pacifier NiNi. As an adult, dressing up like a “T&T” superstar is basically the same as dressing like a slutty princess — seriously, the short, poofy dresses are nearly identical. Pop in a NiNi, don a crown, tan your skin, apply 17 pounds of brightly colored eyeshadow, and scream with authority at anyone in your vicinity, “Don’t you EVER do that again!” and you’re set. Find out how to get the costume, after the jump! Keep reading »

Listen, if you really have to be reminded that blackface is both culturally insensitive and just plain tacky, well, you’ve got problems. But just in case, students at Ohio University created a special campaign, helpfully reminding that blackface — even on Halloween — is in REALLY BAD TASTE. The kids from Students Teaching Against Racism (STARS) developed the “It’s a Culture, Not a Costume” series which features real pictures from a totally offensive Clemson University “gansta” party. But let’s hope you — and your friends — don’t really need the reminder. [Good Magazine]
