Accessorize your LBD into 6 iconic women for Halloween
As one of the women who brought the LBD into our collective consciousness, it's no surprise that one of the famous portraits of Coco herself shows the woman in a noir dress with piles of pearls and the byzantine-style jewelry she was known for.
When it comes to the big screen, no black dress is more famous than the Givenchy design Audrey Hepburn wore in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Re-creating the look is a cinch, so long as you add on the right jewels and extras — bagged breakfast and coffee cup optional.
A bonafide babe both then and now, Elizabeth Hurley wow'ed the red carpet when she showed up in a sexy safety pin-accented Versace dress to the premiere of then-boyfriend Hugh Grant's Four Weddings and a Funeral. Even the simplest of LBDs can still have the same vibe if you get crafty with gold safety pins.
Screen legend Elizabeth Taylor might have been flashy, but she relied on her jewels — not her gown — for the ultimate sparkle. Overdose on all the oversize costume jewels you can find, and embrace your diva side.
Shortly after her divorce was announced, Princess Di stepped out in a sexy black dress that got the world talking. Copy her look with a flowy scarf and pearl choker (really fake the look by adding a brooch to a multistrand necklace). Go for broke in a wig cut in her signature style.
The ultimate fashion-lover would do well to consider dressing up as Vogue's queen bee for Halloween. Anna's signature style lends itself well to a costume: finish off your LBD with oversize sunglasses, a round gemstone necklace, and nude slingbacks.
That trusty little black dress, the answer to a dozen different wardrobe dilemmas, is just as helpful for throwing together a quick-and-easy Halloween costume. If you've got a simple shape sitting in your closet, then you've already got at least six chic options.
