Be your own rich husband, AKA Cher, this Halloween! Embrace your inner diva and go all-out with a black wig and leather leotard.
Gemini: Meghan Markle
Who doesn’t like to play dress up? Especially when impersonating a princess. For Halloween, the stylish and tough Gemini would best be suited to dress up as Meghan Markle, with a high society remix—a modern day princess wearing ripped jeans and a tiara. Make Meghan Markle’s Cali-meets-Windsor-Palace vibe your holiday costume, for a casual, yet very royal look.
Cancer: Diana Ross
Let yourself “feel love” for the good of the world by embracing your inner Ms. Ross. What better time to let out your inner disco queen than Halloween?
First of all, dressing up like Beyoncé should be a monthly national holiday. This Hallow’s Eve, stand out in a crowd wearing a yellow dress (a color Bey favors and is your sign’s signature shade), wielding a baseball bat as your only accessory.
Virgo: Marlene Dietrich
Much like Virgos, Dietrich’s shameless simplicity and desire to be herself boosted her status amongst the trailblazers of the 1920s. Plus, why not seize the opportunity to look chic in a suit?
Libra: Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Our favorite Supreme Court judge changed the dynamic of how we discuss gender politics in America by setting the bar incredibly high (like any Libra would) for justice.
Scorpio: Jennifer Lopez
Who could forget the green Versace dress J. Lo wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards (and again, in 2019, at Versace’s latest runway show)? The look alone has a Wikipedia page dedicated to it, after all. J. Lo is the ultimate entrepreneur and visionary—using fashion, talent, and humanitarian pursuits to change the world. J. Lo and her emerald Versace dress are the ultimate Scorpio costume.
Sagittarius: Janet Jackson
After a career’s worth of impact on the music industry, Janet Jackson has proven that women can have it all—at any age. Her boundary-pushing and thought-provoking hits such as “Rhythm Nation” embrace the worldly archer’s philosophy and ideals, and so should your costume this Halloween.
Capricorn: Dolly Parton
While she may live for flashy and sparkly outfits, Dolly Parton has also made a splash behind the scenes as a professional business woman. She’s said, “I’m proud to be a woman, proud to be a woman in business, proud enough to do what I do.” With that sentiment, what hard working Cap wouldn’t want to dress up as Dolly?
Aquarius: Yoko Ono
One of the most well-known musicians, artists, and poets of the world is Yoko Ono. And don’t forget her advocacy for humanitarian issues. All of these are reasons why dressing as Yoko Ono would be the best costume for Aquarius to “Give Peace a Chance.”
Pisces: Billie Holiday
A feminist and pioneer, Holiday is one of the most influential jazz singers of all time. A signer who paved the way for female artists, Holiday overcame adversity and found her voice through music. Much like the sign of Pisces, Holiday’s salvation came through connecting with the arts and by seeing the world through a unique lens. Show the world your inner spirit, beautiful Pisces, by evoking the spirit of Billie Holiday.
