Channeling Foxxxy


With the advent of fall comes many things–not the least of which is Halloween planning. Yup, it’s that time, folks. Time to start thinking about that age-old dilemma: What will I dress up as for Halloween this year? This year is an especially important one since the date happens to fall on a Friday. This means that there will be no chance of rolling into the office two hours late with a t-shirt on over last night’s costume. Or with magenta streaks still in your hair a la Jem and the Holograms. This, in itself, is reason to celebrate. So. Needless to say, I’ve already begun a list of possible costumes, including Wonder Woman (not so original but I’ve always wanted to do it), Tin Man (but sexy. Obviously.), and old-school Burlesque Dancer (i.e. Dita von Teese). Yes, I like my costumes nice and slutty, thankyouverymuch.

However, this morning, I happened to stumble upon this gorgeous photograph of Aggy backstage at Oscar de la Renta’s fall 08 show. Her perfect copper eyeshadow brings to mind a certain Austin Powers character…Foxxxy Cleopatra. And there you have it–Halloween 2008 is finalized. And all I’ll need is a body-skimming gold sequin mini dress, a huge curly wig, some gold body glitter and, of course, an exact replica of Oscar’s runway make-up.

Now, I just have to nail the langorous roll of Foxxxy’s voice when she says: ‘Cause I’m Foxxxy Cleopatra. And I’m a WHOLE LOTTA WOMAN.
