I hope everyone enjoyed their Halloween! I didn't do too much, considering Halloween is not one of my top favorite holidays. Most of my friends went to haunted houses and watched scary movies while I just chilled aside. I kind of regretted not doing anything this year, however, because I've been seeing so many cute costume ideas that I wish I could've tried out when I had the chance, which you can check out at 10 DIY Halloween Costume Ideas. However, I managed this past weekend to fit it at least one idea, and that of course is Hollywood legend and fashion icon Audrey Hepburn!
If you've read most of my blog posts before, you most definitely know that Audrey Hepburn is one of my favorite celebrities to have existed. She was one of my top ideas for a Halloween costume, and probably the easiest one to pull off. Of course, I dressed like her character Holly Golightly from one of her most famous movies: Breakfast at Tiffany's!
Audrey Hepburn is the one who made the LBD (Little Black Dress) iconic and what it is in the present fashion world. Though this LBD from Calvin Klein isn't technically "little", it's still elegant and definitely a dress that Audrey would have rocked her in days!
To make the costume for stylish and 60's, I used my black high heels from J. Crew and cat eye sunglasses from Ann Taylor, two stores which Audrey would most definitely shop at if she were still alive!
The other accessories I included were a long pearl necklace, diamond earrings, long white gloves (I couldn't find black ones), and to top off, a tiny diamond tiara to fit on my updo. I felt like a princess, I didn't even to win homecoming or prom queen to receive it! Ironically, Audrey played a princess in Roman Holiday!
And of course, like Holly, I needed a fancy cigarette holder as a prop! Don't worry, it wasn't real and I don't actually smoke ...
And of course, we can't forget to pose like the iconic headshot!
I hope this costume idea was helpful for anyone looking for a costume next year or for a belated Halloween party this weekend.
Happy Halloween, darlings!
