It’s that time of year again, Sloanies. Glowing pumpkins are already sitting out on front porches and the shops are awash with ghosts, cobwebs and all manner of trickery and treats. Fed up of that tired old broomstick and witches’ hat, are we? Reluctant to dig out the leotard and cats’ ears for another year on the trot? Look no further – we’ve done a quick and fabulous round up of what all our favorite celebs and Sloanies rocked on Halloween last fall. Deep breath now…
Beyonce dressed up as a bumble bee (or Bey?) whilst model Miranda Kerr made for a very attractive cat complete with drawn-on whiskers, cute fluffy ears and the charming addition of bright red lips. Wild child and British rock royalty Kelly Osbourne transformed herself into a super-gory Carrie from the Stephen King horror novel, and supermodel Brit Kate Moss dressed as a freaky skeleton lady in honor of Mexico’s Day of the Dead. Sloanie songstress Lily Allen was snapped out on the town shimmering in a slinky green sequined number and full on green body paint as a Halloween alien last fall, whilst super-cool rockstar Gwen Stefani took her kids trick or treating in LA dressed as an eerie fairy princess. First Lady Michelle Obama greeted trick-or-treaters at the White House in chic leopard print faux fur and kitty ears, and Miley Cyrus turned her hair bright pink and dressed up as rapper Lil’ Kim. Our current Sloanie style crush Rosie Huntington-Whiteley followed in Miley’s footsteps and went as her fave pop icon Rihanna, and Paris Hilton went as Miley Cyrus. Oh, and Nicole Richie went as J-Lo. Are you keeping up?
Kate Moss – ever the party girl, even in her naughty forties – was papped again last Halloween dressed as Morticia Adams with hubby dressed as a suave and moustachioed Gomez, and supermodel Gisele Bundchen made a very striking Cleopatra complete with killer kohl cats’ eyes and a jet-black bobbed wig. Sloanie model and presenter Alexa Chung stepped out as a freshly-beheaded Marie Antoinette a couple years back, whilst her BFF and Cara Delevingne’s big sister Poppy made for a super sassy Little Red Riding Hood complete with basket of goodies for grandma.
British It-girl Pixie Geldof posed as a naughty nun at one of her many raucous Halloween parties last fall, and the Kardashians have been seen arriving at Halloween parties dressed as mermaids in recent years.
A bounty of inspiration, we think you’ll agree. But our favorite Halloween inspo for 2014 has to be making like Miley, Rosie and Nicole and dressing up as your biggest style crush. And the more outrageous, the better – you only get the chance to do this once a year, after all.
Happy Halloween, Sloanies – don’t forget to show us your best costume ensembles on Instagram by adding @SloaneRanger when you post. We’ll regram our favorite looks, as always!
