With Halloween mere days away, some people might be scrambling around for last minute costumes. If you’re feeling uninspired and are willing to spend a princely sum on an elaborate costume this Halloween, look no further than to Marc Jacobs for some costume inspiration. Marc Jacobs loves to throw together a good costume for whatever the occasion or holiday. His annual company Christmas party isn’t your typical holiday fare of eggnog, mistletoe and secret Santa––every year boasts a new theme and it almost never has anything to do with Christmas. Marc’s parties stop nowhere short of excess, and he’s always wearing some unbearably clever costume and an impish grin. Highlights include his 2005 “Wild West” themed party where he went as Wilbur from “Charlotte’s Web” and his 2006 “Carnival in Venice” themed party which he showed up as a Venetian pigeon. If you’re looking for something a little less elaborate, his 2011 Halloween costume as a Kit Kat dancer from “Cabaret” is especially memorable. Or, you could throw on a speedo and a Louis Vuitton towel and go as Marc himself for Halloween. The options are endless.
