6 Halloween Costumes That Spell Fashion With A Capital F

Halloween is only three weeks away, which means it's time to start considering what OTT costumes we are going to pull out for the occasion.

With fashion month still fresh in our minds, we're planning a full fashion-themed All Hallow's Eve. Think Justin and Hailey Bieber Calvin Klein ad remakes, J.Lo-approved Versace naked dresses, and yes, that infamous life-like Gucci head accessory.

Sure, we can't exactly promote spending $11,000 on a 3D-printed head like Jared Leto did for the Met Gala, but we can suggest some easier-to-manage costume ideas that still spell Fashion with a capital F.

Ahead, check out 6 fashun-forward Halloween costumes that are sure to get you that best-dressed award at every soiree come October 31st.

Jared Leto at the Met Gala (& More Severed Heads)

Gucci's FW18 runway show presented a handful of strange objects including, but not limited to dragons, snakes and chameleons.

But of all the accessories carried throughout the show, the models carrying life-like replicas of their own heads were by far the most memorable of the night.

Oh, and then Gucci spokesman, Jared Leto, recreated his head for the 2019 Met Gala red carpet... a task that apparently cost him around $11,000 (casual).

Tape a printed picture of your face until this mask, attach it to a ball (and for extra credit, throw on a wig!) and you're good to go. Best of all, no need to spend $11,000.

Naomi Campbell & Kate Moss Eating Ramen

There's no model/BFF duo more synonymous with fashion than Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. So, of course, we're dying to spend a night in their shoes.

To nail their looks, we suggest going full 90s model off duty, a.k.a. low-rise jeans, a simple camisole and, naturally, a to-go cup of ramen and a Coca Cola can.

There's no combo more tied to Scandinavian style than a poofy, pastel dress and a pair of chunky sneakers. And while the number of brands coming out of Denmark continues to rise, none can quite compete with cult-classic label Ganni and their infamous #GanniGirls.

50th Anniversary #MYCALVIN Campaign

It may have only come out 3 days ago, but Calvin Klein's 50th anniversary #MYCALVIN campaign — starring newlyweds Hailey and Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, ASAP Rocky, Shawn Mendes, Troye Sivan and more — is already the most talked about Halloween costume of the season.

Viktor & Rolf Memes

"Go F*ck Yourself", "Sorry I'm Late I Didn't Want To Come", "NO" — these are just a few of the uber-relatable messages that avant garde brand, Viktor & Rolf sent down their spring 2019 couture runway in Paris. To turn the viral gowns into Halloween costume infamy, grab any princess-like gown in your closet (or on the shelves of Spirit Halloween) and cut 'n' paste your sassy phrase of choice.

The J.Lo Jungle Dress

It's been nearly 20 years since J.Lo made history on the Grammy's red carpet donning a green Versace dress that sparked the creation of Google images.

In honor of the upcoming 20-year anniversary, the Grammy-winning artist surprised MFW show-goers by modeling the dress at Versace's Spring 2020 show last month.

Since it's top of mind — not that we ever stopped obsessing over it — we predict that die-hard JLo fans will gravitate toward this costume even more than usual this year.
