High Fashion Halloween Costumes

While dreaming up my new Halloween costume post, I got to thinking how often times designers' avant garde creations can turn out almost costume-y. Runway shows are the epitome of conjured up themed looks.

Looking at Spring/Summer 2010 collections, these were some of my favorite costume inspirations: Barbie at Versace, Wilma Flimstone at Jeremy Scott, Zombie Brides at Rodarte, Dorothy at Christopher Kane, and Jocks at Alexander Wang. How perfect hmm? I definitely wouldn't mind rocking this runway garb to a halloween party!

What are you going to dress up as for Halloween?

xoxo, lauren

You're right! I think about that sometimes. I am not dressing up this year, might go for a drink and check out the parade but that's it.

Loved Dorothy at Christopher Kane - there's something about The Wizard of Oz that I simply cannot resist.

I think I'll be going as an angel - though I haven't bought a halo yet. I do, however, have a tiara. So if worst comes to worst, I'll simply be a Princess Angel! :)

What a great post! I would love a Wilma, but my outfit is very Rodarte now you mention it! Will be posting in on my blog for Halloween x

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Oh how fab! I love their versions. :) I'm going as Pocahontas!

My best friend is being Dorothy with her yorkie as Toto. So since I didn't have a idea yet, I am going to be the Lion with a simple brown dress, ugg boots turned down to show the fur, and ears.

michelle_ said...

totally agree with you . some runway deals are worth for halloween costumes . I love the flinstones one . it's not too cartoony, not overtly sexy, but people still get the idea that you're flinstones !

i dont celebrate halloween here in my country . so not dressing for anything :(
