Copycat Fashion: Celebrity Couples Halloween Costumes

13 Oct

Halloween is less than three weeks away, and that means it’s time to decide on a costume! Many of you will be celebrating All Hallow’s Eve at parties with your friends, getting dressed up for each other in your most ghoulish attire. I love looking at costume ideas online, and always see some pretty fantastic ones from celebrities. They get to go to elaborate Halloween bashes and seem to always pick the most outrageous and creative costumes. This year I thought, “why not take some inspiration from the stars?” so I’m bringing you my favorites from some pretty cool celebrity couples (past and present).

First up – Christina Aguilera and ex-hubby Jordan Bratman got ghoulish in 2006 as a corpse bride and groom.

This is one of my favorite couples costumes, especially for an engaged couple or newlyweds. And it’s surprisingly easy to pull off. I don’t know about you, but every time I go thrifting at a local Goodwill or Salvation Army store I always see that one sad, lonely, and totally 80’s wedding dress. For the corpse bride look I think the tackier, the better! (Plus you won’t feel as bad destroying it with rips and fake blood.)

What you’ll need: Wedding dress, veil, silk flower bouquet, suit and tie, silk flower boutonniere, white costume makeup (or even very fair foundation, if you have a dark skin tone), and fake blood.
Optional accessories to complete the look: Opera gloves (tear them up a bit), fake eyelashes (if you want to go all out with the dramatic makeup), baby powder (put some in his hair to make him look dusty and decayed) a red lip liner pencil (draw on some cuts and scratches).

Next, it’s Kate Beckinsale and husband Len Wiseman as horror royalty Frankenstein and his bride from Halloween 2010.

Frankenstein+Bride+Frankenstein+Len+Wiseman+Kate Beckinsale

I am a big fan of these two, and would expect nothing less than horror-ific from the Underworld star and writer/director themselves. Everyone loves Frankenstein, and this couples costume is easily one of the most classic choices of all time. Again, it’s very easy to pull off, and your guy wouldn’t have to do much in the way of dressing up, so they’ll love it.

What you’ll need: Old wedding dress, white dress or store-bought bride costume (get creative!), Bride of Frankenstein wig, white costume makeup, Frankenstein mask, black blazer or jacket, big black boots.
Optional accessories to complete the look: Ghoulish jewelry (check out the stitch choker below!), black costume makeup (rub some under your cheekbones for added drama), sunglasses, leather pants.

Here’s another fun one – Sophia Bush and Austin Nichols went as now famous exes Katy Perry and Russell Brand in 2010.

Ok, so this really may just be an excuse to dress slutty and don a blue wig, but you have to admit, it’s pretty funny. For the Katy Perry look any low-cut dress will do – just remember, the more cleavage the better, and stick to wildly bright colors or patterns. For Russell Brand, a long curly wig is a must, and of course, the half unbuttoned shirt.

What you’ll need: A fun, California girl inspired dress, blue wig (you could also go with lavender), curly brown wig, men’s button-up shirt (not fully buttoned, as mentioned afore), lots of necklaces.
Optional accessories to complete the look: Vest (unbuttoned, of course), sunglasses, scarf.

What’s With All These Celebrity Break-Ups?

22 Jan

It seems more and more Hollywood marriages are doomed to end in divorce these days. So many celebrity couples have split lately, and it really makes me ask: what’s in the water out there in LA??

I have always said that it takes a certain kind of person to be a celebrity. Someone who loves being in the spotlight, who wants millions of people looking at them and knowing all about their personal lives. I feel that someone like this wouldn’t be able to have a meaningful, long-term relationship with anyone (except for maybe their agent, of course). That’s my theory, at least. My husband claims it’s their busy schedules that cause the splits; the fact that they go months apart while working on a movie, show, album, etc.

Whatever the reason, I think it’s just sad. Here are some recent celeb break-ups, a few of which really don’t surprise me!

Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries divorce after just 72 days. Did she really expect us to believe it was real when she made millions on her wedding??

Katy Perry & Russell Brand end their marriage after just a year. She did realize he was a sex addict when she married him, right?

Demi Moore & Ashton Kutcher split after 6 years of marriage. I don’t really know what to say about this other than I’m honestly surprised it lasted this long.

Cutie Zooey Deschanel & her rockin’ hubby of two years, Ben Gibbard, sadly ended their marriage in November. 😦

Heidi Klum & Seal recently announced they are divorcing after almost 7 years of marriage. What!? I totally did not see this coming.

Power couple J. Lo & Marc Anthony split after 7 years of marriage. There are all kinds of rumors circulating about this one y’all, like he was controlling, abusive and jealous.

With all of these break-ups in Hollywood, I can’t help but wonder: who’s next??

Do you think these celeb marriages will last?
