Lauren Conrad’s DIY Cruella de Vil Halloween Costume Is Spot-On
If Lauren Conrad’s Alice in Wonderland and Bambi Kohl’s collections didn’t give away that she is a Disney fan, her Halloween costumes might. She dressed up as Minnie Mouse back in 2011, and her latest look is an homage to one of Disney’s most notorious, non-puppy friendly villains.
Conrad, 31, who welcomed baby Liam in July, revealed her 2017 Halloween creation of Cruella de Vil via Instagram. As expected, her nod to the infamous 101 Dalmatians character is pure perfection.
“I almost always make my Halloween costumes from scratch — the process usually involves cutting, sewing, and a whole lot of tulle. But this year, I found myself with a little less time on my hands,” Conrad wrote on her blog, “so I opted for a less time consuming costume.” Um, we totally understand how she might be short on time, since she’s a new mom and all).
Nonetheless, the former The Hills star’s styling is spot-on, if we do say so ourselves!
To get the look, The Hills alum opted for the Zara Long Strappy Dress ($23), a fur coat that she scored on Etsy (faux, of course! She’s not really Cruella), a pair of red satin gloves ($4), and Aldo Stessy R red pumps ($85).
Or course, she finished the outfit with a piece from her own collection, the LC Lauren Conrad Palais Convertible Handbag ($79).
Her beauty look was achieved with her signature cat eye and Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Luminous Modern-Matte Lipstick ($34) in Red Carpet Red, but it was her hair that served as the costume’s pièce de résistance.
Rather than opting for the easy route and throw on a wig, LC picked up some black ($9) and white spray-on hair color ($6). “The hair is a little challenging to style, but other than that it’s really pretty simple,” Conrad warns.
What’s more, as she wrote in her blog, she’ll also have the perfect accessory in son Liam, as she plans to dress her three-month-old up as a Dalmatian. “I can’t wait to dress him up for his first Halloween,” the new mama shared. Too cute!
