These famous Halloween costume ideas will ensure you’re at the top of the party with an instantly recognizable costume (and that’s the point, right?). get Lady GagaMeat Dressing from the 2010 VMAs: Who not remember that controversial design, complete with meat shoes and a meat bag? Or how do you say BjorkSwan Dress from the Oscars 2001. All you need is some tulle and a swan plush toy wrapped around your neck and you’re good to go! Minimum effort, maximum impact.
If you want suits that are less, say, controversial, there are also glamorous and traditionally beautiful looks that you can emulate. A sheer sequin dress – complete with big, bouncy curls – will channel Diana Ross. A black maxi dress and a beaded scarf will pay tribute to timelessness Stevie Nicks. Or, you can even try to channel Beyonce at Coachella in 2018 wearing a yellow hoodie, denim shorts and metallic boots. Her epic dance moves, however, are not required – although they would certainly end the Halloween party in style.
