Since it's commercialisation over in the US, Halloween has been a holiday that's deeply interconnected to fashion. Whether you're returning to that trusty witches hat or hand-crafting a Halloween fit that might be better placed at cosplay convention than your local boozer, Halloween gives us a chance to tap into our spooky alter-ego in a very sartorial way. Platforms like Instagram have exacerbated the whole affair too; would your Halloween costume really be a Halloween costume if the whole thing wasn't documented online? And would it be Halloween without scrupulously checking what your pals - and your fave celebs - have dressed up as?
While there's a whole horde of Halloween costume inspo from our fave celebs, we can't forget the ladies that forged the magical union of spooky and style way before Kendall Jenner was a fembot or Lupita Nyong'o did that iconic Clueless look. Yes: we're talking about those ladies actually on-screen: the characters from our fave horror films that, whether intentional or not, are style icons.
These ladies served: they served not while drinking a gin and tonic at an awkward house party, but while they were being hunted by a ghostly presence, while being sacrificed to Satan and while attending a rather unconventional summer festival. Meet the ladies with truly "killer" looks.
