The made-for-TV reboot of Rosemary’s Baby is upon us! There’s no way this new mini series will even hold a spooky flickering candle to the original Roman Polanski film, but it’s exciting nonetheless. In honor of this televised spectacle of horror, I’ve put together 10 looks inspired by some classic horror movies.
Play homage to Alfred Hitchcock’s inspired thriller by going overboard with bird prints and bird shaped accessories. I chose black flats because they’re both a classic and comparatively easier to run (away from birds) in than heels.
Rhoda is among the creepiest characters in cinema history! She’s creepy, evil and absolutely fabulous in her glamorous sunglasses, prim dresses and tap shoes.
Channel Jack Nicholson in Kubrick’s classic in plaid and red. You could also buy one or two blatantly Shining inspired sweaters that are ready-made and really cute (pssst, I pre-ordered the cardigan from the 237 collection).
Frankenstein’s monster has such classic style. What’s more versatile and flattering than all black everything paired with a chunky shoe? Add studded accessories like bolt earrings to round out the look without mutilating yourself.
Personally, I think Lon Chaney made for a kind of hunky Wolf Man. Silver, faux fur and moons will hint at lycanthropy without being too overt.
Berserk might not be Joan Crawford’s best movie, but this circus thriller dazzling watch and campy as all get out. I heard the next American Horror Story installment will be about a traveling circus. Knowing Ryan Murphy’s style, the season will pay tribute to Berserk and to Freaks (1932), another classic.
