Allison McNamara: For Halloween, top celebrity stylist predict that jersey shorts, pint size Snooki, Lady Gaga, The Situation and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will be the Halloween costumes you’re going to spot everywhere.
Our fashion experts tell us how you can recreate these looks.
Phillip Bloch: You got to get the Snooki bumb. I’ve been teasing my hair. There’s a bump going on under the hat. Trust me, it’s there.
George Kotsiopoulos: A lot of Snookis. You just need an orange tan, a bump-it, a jar of pickles and two tacky sunglasses; heck tacky everything, Snooki.
Jessica Paster: Go to somewhere like Forever 21. Get yourself a spandex or even American Apparel; get yourself a spandex little dress, the shorter, the better. Go get a wig or if you have long hair, do the bump-it and get a lot of bronzer.
Go Gaga for Gaga.
Phillip Bloch: Oh gosh, I hope no one’s going to be wearing uncured meat costumes on Halloween night. I wouldn’t want to have lick them.
George Kotsiopoulos: This Halloween is all about Lady Gaga. I mean we’re going to see meat dresses; that costume type of thing, super easy to do, do at home. Gaga costumes are like super easy. All you need is the right hair and makeup, fabulous platforms and just don’t wear any pants. The blazed body suit thing is actually pretty easy to do and you just think of crazy hair and big glasses and platforms, I mean Gaga. I think they’re going to be Gaga’s all over the place.
The Ab-Fab Situation.
Phillip Bloch: I got the get that six pack! I’ve been going to the gym! Oh my crunches, I’m going to get The Situation six-pack if it kills me or I have to kill him.
Jessica Paster: The Situation which I find very hilarious, you can go three ways. If you have your own six-pack, just bronze it up and put a lot of oil and just go shirtless or open shirt. If you have no six-pack, you can draw paint like Mariah Carey. She used to paint or draw her six-pack. Go to someone’s makeup bag and get bronzer and just draw your own six-pack or if you really, really don’t have a six-pack, get a t-shirt that already has a guy’s six-pack on it.
Blinged out Beverly Hills
Jessica Paster: This year, I think we’re going to see a lot of Real Housewives from Beverly Hills. For the affordable version, I would just go to a second hand store and just get something sparkly and short, get a lot of padding, make sure you get your hair done, do lip liner around your lips and a lot of faux diamond jewelry and you’re good to go.
Allison McNamara: I’m Allison, thanks for watching FabFlash.
