13 Halloween Costumes Inspired By This Year’s Viral Fashion Moments


Are you struggling to come up with an amazing Halloween costume this year? And are you a serious fashion lover, too? If so, good news: We’ve got the perfect combo for you! Why not look to this year’s most viral fashion moments for a more unexpected (and totally clever) outfit concept. We’re talking costume ideas plucked right from the fashion headlines.

Back in March, for instance, Kim Kardashian attended the fall 2022 Balenciaga show in a super wild look: She covered herself in Balenciaga-branded caution tape. Her outfit squeaked with each measured step she took. You could channel her and buy caution tape for a DIY costume moment—or, Yandy is selling a $63 version of the same outfit as a onesie (their costume is called the “Work Harder” costume, an homage to Kardashian’s now infamous soundbite, “Nobody wants to work these days”).

Just this past month, model Bella Hadid went viral when she walked in Coperni’s spring 2023 show. Two technicians stood by her side and sprayed a dress onto her using webbing fabric. For a Halloween take, you could buy an off-the-shoulder white dress and carry a can of silly string with it. When Anne Hathaway attended the Michael Kors show in a brown leather trench and turtleneck, many noted that she resembled her character Andy Sachs in The Devil Wears Prada. Wear the same pieces, and you’re instantly serving Halloween camp.

Of course, no fashion Halloween costume roundup would be complete without some Met Gala references. Kylie Jenner’s Off-White look at this year’s Met, complete with a giant bridal skirt and backwards cap-slash-veil, had the whole Internet talking—as did her sister Kim’s naked dress borrowed from Marilyn Monroe. Or, for a couple’s costume idea, you could go as Jared Leto and Alessandro Michele, who twinned in Gucci. Because the only thing better than a good Halloween costume is two Halloween costumes.

Below, 13 more Halloween costume ideas inspired by the viral fashion moments of 2022.
