A Totally Farshun Halloween

Written by 

Now dressing up as a fashion personality isn't going to be for everyone this Halloween. If you're going to your carpenter boyfriend's best mates party, skip these. In fact, don't even bother reading this, because if you opt to go as any of the below people you're going to spend your entire night explaining who the fuck you are why it is funny.

BUT, if you're going to a party with anyone who has seen The September Issue or has any vauge knowledge of fashion-y crap then go forth and dress totally farshun this halloween.

One | Anna Wintour

Of course, if you're going to go as a fashion industry profesh first stop is the Queen, Anna Wintour. Anna is also probably the best option if you're super lazy. All you need is a sensible frock, black shades, a bobbed wig, statement necklace and a dead-pan face. It also helps that Anna is genuinely scary.

Wif; ASOS 'Oversized sunglasses' | $18.48; ASOS 'Vintage Style' necklace | $46.21; TOPSHOP 'Elfin Shift Dress' | £42

Two | Grace Coddington

If you're going as Anna best find a friend to go as cat-loving super-stylist Grace Coddington. That way you have someone to boss around, which is essential to pulling off a Wintour. If you're the one lucky enough to be Grace, you've hit the jackpot. You just get to shuffle around all night in clunky flats talking about cats and Prada. Replace 'cats' with 'dogs' and this is my dream character.

TOPSHOP 'Jam Platform | £58; Lulu Guiness 'Cat Eye Purse' | $102; Glamour Girl 'Red Wig' | $25.95; TOPSHOP 'Curly Faux Fur Jacket' | £125

Three | Karl Lagerfeld

Not only is King Karl an easy character to pull off, it's a pretty damn comfortable one too. Still got a little winter tub under your belt? You can go as Karl pre-weight loss. Versatile.

ASOS 'Slim white tie' | $11.10; Colab 'Warkult' sunglasses | $219; DELUXE 'Old Man Wig' | $39.95; TOPSHOP 'Tailored Blazer' | £65

Four | Rachel Zoe

If your wardrobe is already fulled to the brim with 70's goodies then going as the totally bananas celebrity stylist, Rachel Zoe is a no-brainer.

ASOS 'Floral Maxi' dress | $84.10; TOPSHOP 'Premium floppy' hat | £95; ASOS 'Nude Round' sunglasses | $18.48; Hannah 'Long costume' wig | $19.95


Five | Bryan Boy

This is probably the most ridiculous, although you'll only be recongnised by true fashion tragics. Bryan Boy obviously has a more is more approach to dressing. Imagine Lady Gaga was an small Asian man and you're on the right track.

Emo Guy 'Black Wig' | $22.95; TOPSHOP 'Heavily embellished beanie' | £40; Jeepers Peeper 'Vintage Reflector' Sunglasses | $34; Alexander McQueen 'Printed stretch legggins' | £195
