Fashion Nova Has A Halloween Collection Inspired by Iconic Fashion Moments — Including Selena’s Purple Jumper And J.Lo’s Versace Gown

Fashion Nova dropped it’s Halloween collection and it is massive. However, there’s one particular section that is causing a stir: celebrity dupes. While Fashion Nova has had multiple run-ins with celebrities over copying their looks and the looks of independent designers, that hasn’t stopped them one bit. This time around they want you to dress up in your favorite celebrities’ most iconic outfits — with slightly more skin showing. 

Some people like to make their own costumes, others like to buy their own costumes. If you fall into the latter group and don’t mind baring it all, you might want to check out the internet retailer’s Cardi B, Selena Quintanilla, Jennifer Lopez, Aaliyah, and Lil Kim costumes.

Fashion Nova launches Celebrity Halloween Costume Collection

Fashion Nova has launched its new season of Halloween costumes. They’re claiming they have the “sexiest” costumes on the internet. Because you know, that’s the most important thing, being sexy. I personally, couldn’t care less how women dress on Halloween, but I do think we should have options other than essentially walking around naked during one of the colder months of the year. 

All your faves are available

This time around, Fashion Nova has continued to dupe celebrity outfits. Although Kara Nesvig of Teen Vogue makes an important point, “As fun as these costumes may be, Fashion Nova has landed in hot water after being accused of knocking off clothing designs from both independent designers and big names, like a look-alike of the Mugler dress worn by Kim Kardashian West that was made the brand and sold just days after she wore it, causing Kardashian West to speak out. While these Halloween designs are ‘celebrity-inspired,’ it’s worth remembering where each came from and honoring the designers and inspiration behind each look as you rake in the Halloween candy come October 31.”

Jennifer Lopez

This look is so iconic — and you may not know this – it is the reason Google image search exists. When J. Lo wore this super-duper low-cut Versace dress to the 2000 Grammy Awards so many people were searching for it that Google came up with the idea for a way to search for specific images. Her impact! 

“People wanted more than just text. This first became apparent after the 2000 Grammy Awards, where Jennifer Lopez wore a green dress that, well, caught the world’s attention,” Google’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt said. “At the time, it was the most popular search query we had ever seen. But we had no sure-fire way of getting users exactly what they wanted: JLo wearing that dress. Google Image Search was born.”

Lil Kim

When Lil Kim wore her purple one-armed (and one-boobed) jumpsuit and matching wig to the 1999 VMAs, it caused quite a stir. While announcing an award with Diana Ross, Ross grabbed Lil Kim’s boob. It’s hard to believe that Janet Jackson was ostracized from Hollywood years later for exposing her pasty-covered nipple at the Super Bowl, but life makes no sense.

Selena

This controversial reinterpretation of Selena’s iconic disco outfit had some fans last Halloween clutching their pearls on social media. “What would Selena’s father think?” Many asked. Who cares? He was always controlling of her body in the most sexist way with regard to how she dressed. Or are we blinded by machismo here? Selena herself never agreed with him, so why do we care what he thinks? 

Saying her dad would have abused her if he saw this makes the argument kind of null. We don’t know if Selena would have liked or hated this. Sometimes that’s just how it be.

Aaliyah

The “One in a Million” costume pays homage to Aaliyah’s “Try Again” music video outfit. This is probably the most accurate of the bunch. 

Cardi B

Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy album cover comes to life here. I am assuming that because the cover only features the top of Cardi’s body, Fashion Nova just assumed she wasn’t wearing pants? The rapper has had multiple collections with Fashion Nova so it is no surprise to see her included here. 

“You’re going to see a lot of skin,” the rapper said. “A lot of cleavage. But yet it’s so pretty and so elegant. I made sure it was sexy but also beautiful,” Cardi said of her second Fashion Nova collection, which sold a $1 million worth of product within 24 hours of its launch. 

Fashion Nova refuses to acknowledge that sometimes the weather is cold, but anyone who is going to buy one of these costumes probably doesn’t care either. Check out Fashion Nova’s Halloween collection here

Women Are Sharing Their Sage Heel Shopping Advice

Women Are Sharing Their Sage Heel Shopping Advice

When it comes to heels the options can beyond overwhelming. From stilettos and block heels to wedges and kitten heels, these pumps are proof that when it comes to shoes it’s not always a one-size-fits-all kind of game.

Women on Reddit recently gathered around on a discussion board, to share their best type of heel advice for women.

Check it out below!

“Sarah Flint is great if you really want to invest. Cole Haan is my personal go-go, but I’ve had success with Corso Como as well. J. Crew also has a surprisingly good selection of footwear and I snag trendy or statement shoes from them from time to time. All of these makers have small sizes in-stock as part of their standard offering.

For heels in particular I think committing to leather is important–if you buy them in the proper size they’ll “mold” to your feet in a way that synthetic materials never will. Pretty important for us wee ones who often have to deal with things running large to begin with.

“Thanks for the advice! Every pair of Cole Haan shoes I’ve tried haven’t been my favorites, so I’ll check out the others!”- mimosaandmagnolia

“While decidedly not an expert on heels, I checked the gf’s closet and found lots of Cole Haan and Burberry. She’s on her feet all day doing rounds at the hospital so she’s literally put a premium and is willing to pay a premium to be comfortable when she dresses up (however infrequent that’s been in the last year).

These may be outside your budget if purchased new, but may be brands to keep an eye out for at Nordstrom Rack, etc.”- itsonlyastrongbuzz

“Cole Haan for me. I have a pair of navy capped toe pumps that have lasted me for years and are very comfortable. For particularly small feet, I would recommend a Salvatore Ferragamo Vara pump. They’ve got a nice low heel, come in loads of colors, and they too last a long time if you take good care of them.”- Foxlurker8

“Hi! I think Franco Sarto makes a super cute block heel. Practical but still chic. I usually just go to nordstroms and try a bunch on.”- billnyegirl

“I bought a pair of heels once by Franco Sarto and they left blisters on my feet. I was so disappointed because after wearing them for a day my blood stained the tan leather.”- mimosaandmagnolia

“Definitely an investment but it may be worth looking at M Gemi? I bought a pair of their suede loafers on sale and love them — they are so comfortable! Looks like their heels go down to a size 35 (EU) which I think is close to your size?”- WannaWearMyRedShoes
