October has arrived, and you know what that means. Time to get started on that epic Halloween costume of yours! And if you’re at a loss for what to be this year, why not dress as a famous style icon. From Kim Kardashian to Kurt Cobain, transform into a pop-culture star with one of these fun DIY costumes.
Madonna has a history of iconic outfits, but this one she wore to the 1984 MTV Video Music Awards really put her on the map. Go as the queen of pop herself in this “edgy virgin bride” look.
All hail the original grunge style icon. Channel Kurt Cobain in his most memorable look from his last photo shoot before his death. All you need is a leopard jacket, aviator hat, and rock ‘n roll attitude.
With her spider-long lashes and boyish hair, Twiggy was a style icon of the sixties. Redefining the “it” girl and taking the modeling world by storm. In a bright shift dress and disco drop earrings, you too can capture the style of this British mod beauty.
The one, the only, Kim Kardashian. With a contour kit and bandage dress, you become the princess of pop culture herself. (Bonus points if you wear a butt pad). And the best part is, you can totally repurpose this look for your next night out.
Designer, creative director, and mastermind behind Chanel—there’s no one more important in the fashion world than Karl Lagerfeld. And dressed in his iconic uniform, the resemblance is unmistakable.
The face of Hollywood’s golden age, Audrey Hepburn was the icon every girl wanted to be. Embrace her grace, glamour, and poise dressed in her iconic little black dress, cat-eye sunglasses, and string of pearls.
Whether she’s accessorizing with a live python, shaving her head, or making out with Madonna, Britney Spears is a pop-culture sensation. And it all started with her iconic debut single Baby One More Time. In a mini skirt and knotted button down, take it back to this infamous music video.
