6 amazing female icon costumes for Halloween that you have to see

Morning, Cakies! We’re kicking off this lovely mid-October week with the most creative, conceptual bridal fashion editorial that is not only super perfect for Halloween, it’s inspired by an amazing assortment of female icons past and present that stylist Natasha of Ornamental Hermit and Alice Xue Photography worked into 6 genius costumes. So if you’ve been on the hunt for female icon costumes that are totally unique, empowering, and incredibly surprising, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s begin with this modern interpretation of the Catholic bride, as inspired by The Virgin Mary, Met Ball fashion, and Bernini sculptures.

On the inspiration behind the shoot: With its chaotic marriage of high fashion and bridal, this shoot injects the concept of a “dream wedding” with its own cheeky, off-kilter twist. By taking a new spin on some old favorites, we invite brides to see what could be possible. Encapsulating archetypes evocative of famous fashion moments, these six looks walk the fine line between cartoonish exaggeration and unvarnished loveliness.

From the nonchalant brattiness of a shot-gun wedding, to the verdant, unfussy charm of 60’s new wave, or a modern Marie Antoinette’s sybaritic playfulness, these looks distinguish themselves from your typical bridal look with their reliance on idiosyncratic touches, whether it is using a vintage polka-dotted raincoat as a wedding cape, 18th century underwear as outwear, or a healthy dash of early 2000s bad taste.
