Halloween Inspo (feat kate moss)

Halloween Inspo (with lingerie and makeup you already own) — Part One

I always go for Halloween costumes that fit my favorite beauty and fashion trends — it makes it easier to assemble a look. It’s the one holiday where the lesser-seen pieces in your wardrobe — out there accessories, bold makeup looks, and pretty underthings — can finally have their moment.

If you think about it, models are the perfect icons for Halloween. Who better knows how to play dress up and put on a new identity for a night? This year, I’m exploring fashion editorials and candid personal style images of my favorite top model/chameleon, Kate Moss, to brainstorm ideas for the perfect Halloween costume… featuring items I already own.

From timeless beauties like Marilyn Monroe to cult classic leading ladies like Penny Lane from Almost Famous and Cher & Dionne from Clueless, famous musicians like 90s Madonna, David Bowie & even Kurt Cobain …yep, Kate Moss has emulated all of them, and they’re all perfect Halloween inspo with accessible, everyday pieces (plus those items you never get a chance to wear.)
