A girlfriend of mine was invited t a dress up party themed "Your favorite eccentric celeb". Because of time constraint, she was thinking of what might she already have that she could wear to this party. Instead of focusing on the clothes we focused on an era and what could she achieve with make-up and hair (she can always label the look later). In this case, the focus should be Make-up & Hair, not only the clothes. This was going to be a very big party and everyone would have made a serious effort to stand-out. After long and very focused discussions I came up with an idea... since I had work on the first season of Magic City for Starz Network. I suggested that she goes as Vera and her husband as Ike the main characters. It was a look that I was very comfortable to create and it's a very recent show that most would know and probably love. Once they agreed we got to work on creating the look and catering the look to her. In this case she became the "Star" because it was a look that she could carry.
For Halloween this year think of Make-up & Hair first. Think of what would best compliment you and what will make you stand out. Stay sexy this Halloween.
I will be doing a shot in the next week to re-create the Magic City 50's look. Visit the Shop for the images and do not forget to "Shop The Look".
