Halloween is around the corner, and we're here to help you with those last-minute costume ideas - but this year, our inspo is coming straight from the runway (or the red carpet). Some of 2022's best looks have come from our favorite celebs, so why not take a page from their book and dress up just like them? From Kim Kardashian's Balenciaga-branded caution tape to Bella Hadid's most recent feat during Coperni's spring 2023 show, here are some fashion-forward DIY costumes that will surely make you yell boo!

For those looking to stray away from the basic catgirl costume this year, why not get inspired by some of fashion's most viral moments? Let's start with this year's MET Gala. The theme was essentially celebrating American style, and the celebs showed up. This year, Kylie Jenner's Off-White look could be turned into a Hollywood classic with an oversized white tutu, matching white corset, backward cap, and a veil. But if you're looking to be a bit more challenged, you can knock off Kim's iconic Marilyn Monroe dress, but be careful with all that beading! Or, for the perfect couple's costume, check out Jared Leto and Alessandro Michele's matching Gucci suits.

Fashion week will always provide potential Halloween inspiration, but in honor of this year's Paris Fashion Week, we have to highlight one specific lewk that is sure to take over the streets on October 31st. During the recent Coperni show, Bella Hadid strutted down the runway as 2 technicians sprayed a dress onto her using webbing fabric, and well, the moment went viral. So, to turn the viral moment into the perfect costume, all you have to do is wear an off-the-shoulder white dress and carry around a can of silly string. Voila! 

Speaking of viral moments, Kim Kardashian went viral back in March when she covered herself in head-to-toe Balenciaga caution tape, which, lucky for us, is now being sold as a costume on Yandy. The $49.95 version is named "Work Harder" in honor of Kardashian's infamous line, "nobody wants to work these days." And to top off this viral fashion-inspired Halloween costume list, let's not forget Julia Fox: the queen of DIY this year. Fox rocked an unforgettable black dress at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party featuring hands around her neck and a purse made of "real human hair," one could easily recreate with a simple trip to Party City and the hairdresser! Happy holidays!
