Style Bite // Halloween goes Mean Girls

“In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.”
Cady, Mean Girls

mean1“Why are you dressed so scary?”

Wise ol’Lilo nailed the school girl competitiveness that Halloween dressing can initiate in 2004 and it seems that very little has changed since then.

Of course, it’s a beautiful freedom that girls can dress as Miley Cyrus at the VMAs (though Crystal Hefner’s doing it so it’s now TRUELY banned) as much as they can go trad as a giant pumpkin or Cady-style zombie bride.

And it’s no attention-grabbing surprise that most slebs choose the tits and teeth route (fake blood applied prettily). Take Kelly, Alessandra, Paris and the whole cast of TOWIE for starters.

girlsStandard sexy-scary

This newly homogenised ‘sexy-scary’ is a huge success. It’s available to everyone and as terrifying as a dismembered head in a Krispy Kreme box. Think looming layers of taffeta, siren-like giggling and pacts of prowling Mileys twerking at you through the darkness.

All we need now is the boys to go as Hefner-dressed-as-Thicke and we have a comic-horror hen party scenario on our hands right there.

You have been warned – batten down the hatches this Thursday. Suddenly that pumpkin costume seems like your safest bet.
