Look of the Week: Halloween Costumes On The Fly (Pt. 1)

Year after year, despite making a mental note to think of a Halloween costume in advance, it always comes down to frantically throwing together an ensemble in the final weeks before the big day. But that doesn't mean you can't still come up with something brilliant without having to fight the last-minute costume shop masses.

1. Lady Gaga: Yes, everyone and their sister will probably be Lady Gaga for Halloween, but we were particularly inspired by this look she was rocking on a rainy day in Paris. And hey, it's a great excuse to forget your pants for a night. Top off with a pair of nude heels and you're ready to rock.
