The Halloween Inspiration Board: The Queen Of Hearts

With Tim Burton’s psychedelic version of “Alice in Wonderland” in the works, I’ve gotten newly excited about following a white rabbit down a rabbit hole. I don’t really want to be Alice cause she’s booooring, so I think I’m gonna be the Queen of Hearts this year. It’s a simple getup to put together. Get a black and white dress—I’ll spend more on a super cute one I can wear any time of the year. Add heart accessories in red and black, plus a crown and a scepter, which you can make out of tin foil. Voila. You’re ready to go around screaming, “Off with your head!”

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Julia Child

Think of Julia Child and the word “sexy” might not come to mind. But then think about all you could do if she were suddenly a sexy Halloween costume. Imagine a short, coquettish apron to show off legs. And a spatula to punish naughty trick-or-treaters.

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Coco Chanel

Itching to dress up like a style dah-ling this Halloween? Dear old kooky Karl Lagerfeld is the obvious choice, but who wants to be obvious on arguably the most important fashion day of the year? Trust me: heads will turn if you arrive at your Halloween fete dressed as classic Coco herself. We prefer the older, established Coco Chanel, whom we imagine left a trail of heaven-sent No. 5 perfume in her wake, so we looked to Shirley MacLaine, star of Lifetime’s “Coco Chanel,” for inspiration.

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Carmen Sandiego

I bought a long, red trench at a thrift store a couple years ago, and, without fail, I get called Carmen Sandiego every time I wear it. Dressing up as your favorite educational villain is simple if you already own a red trench — or want to buy one to wear on days other than Halloween. And if you’re not into forking over 50 bucks for a coat you’ll wear once, the Salvation Army is always a good place to start your search. Keep reading »

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Rachel Zoe

Rachel Zoe‘s large-sunglassed visage has become a ubiquitous image. Her tent dresses are recognizable from yards away. And that mane of wavy blond hair has been copied by Midwesterners and starlets alike. Why not add to all the Zoe worship on Halloween by being her? But you’ve kind of got to take it to the hilt. Here’s how … Keep reading »

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Max From “Where The Wild Things Are”

With the Spike Jonze movie opening this month, the book and film’s child hero is likely to be one of this year’s most popular costumes. But you don’t need to run out and buy Opening Ceremony’s $600+ costume. I’m going to keep my hands exposed and paint my nails silver, and added a little more whimsy with a feather crown from Etsy. You could also buy posterboard from an art supply store and cut your own crown. As for this wolf onesie? I plan on wearing mine around the house year-round. Keep reading »

The Inspiration Board: Homage To Mary Travers’ Style

Folk legend Mary Travers of Peter, Paul and Mary may have been a revolutionary artist but she always managed to make fighting the Man look pretty damn good, too. She passed away yesterday after an ongoing battle with leukemia, but her particular brand of laid-back cool lives on. Keep reading »

Inspiration Board: In Homage To Marilyn Monroe

On this day some 47 years ago, the world lost one hell of a saucy minx. We’re talking, of course, about Marilyn Monroe, the buxom blonde icon to end all icons who shagged movie stars, baseball players and presidents alike. (Allegedly, of course.) In an effort to bring out that little bit of Marilyn in all of us, here’s how we suggest paying your respects, sartorially, at least. Lindsay Lohan, we know you’ve already got your notepad out.

The Inspiration Board: Gun Molls

From “Public Enemies” to the upcoming “Bonnie and Clyde” remake (starring Hillary Duff, blech), one thing is clear: the gun moll look is in. We’ll help you get the look without a gun permit. Keep reading »
