Trick or treat! Celebrities are already taking to Instagram this week to share their unique Halloween costumes, in anticipation of the big holiday coming up on Thursday. Some have gotten in the spirit early, such as supermodel Cindy Crawford, who went full-on disco diva this weekend. But this week, there’s already a front-runner for best costume (and it’s only Monday). That would be actress Nina Dobrev, who delivered a clever getup that only true fashion insiders will understand.
Tapping the most entertaining moment of the Spring 2020 runway shows, Dobrev dressed as the notorious show crasher who stormed the Chanel show in Paris this season. That would be Marie Benoliel, a 28-year-old French YouTuber who went rogue and decided to storm the runway and walk the finale of Virginie Viard’s latest collection. (Model Gigi Hadid eventually stopped her and escorted her off the catwalk—talk about fashion roadkill.)
For Dobrev’s take on the fashionable prankster, the actress nailed Benoliel’s bootleg Chanel houndstooth suit and topper hat; her friend Lane Cheek, meanwhile, played the part of the annoyed Hadid, wearing a look similar to the one she walked the Chanel presentation in, right down to the gold belt and signature quilted bag. The duo moment was clever, timely, and, somehow, chic—all the makings of a stellar Halloween costume.
