How To Be The Cast Of Big Little Lies For Halloween

Courtesy of HBO
We knew Big Little Lies would be, at the very least, a fun show. After all, the HBO miniseries orbited around a juicy mystery, and it featured the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Nicole Kidman, and Alexander Skarsgard. What we didn't know was how great the show would be. And ultimately, how important. As Big Little Lies progressed, it went from being a show about petty playground squabbles to one about women surviving abuse.
This Halloween, pay homage to TV's finest set of heroines. The women of Big Little Lies have big kitchens, complicated emotional lives, and deep friendships who help them wade through difficult decisions. They host disastrous dinner parties. They go through hellish marriages, and then get out of them.

And conveniently, they dress in really, really great clothes that you can copy on Halloween (and beyond). Here's everything you need to be Celeste Wright and Madeline Mackenzie, among others, on October 31.

Jane (Shailene Woodley)

Simple: Wear flannel, and lots of it. Wear your hair either in a bun or in a half-ponytail. Make Apple earbuds your only accessory.

Celeste Wright (Nicole Kidman), Casual

Unlike her friend Madeline, who has a bright pink trench, Celeste's wardrobe is very understated. She sticks to tans and neutral tones. You can just say you're being chic for Halloween. Wear a tan turtleneck, jeans, and boots, and pair it with Celeste's auburn hair (if you don't have auburn hair already).

Celeste Wright As Audrey Hepburn

What's the difference between dressing up as Audrey Hepburn, and dressing up as Celeste Wright dressed as Audrey Hepburn? Attitude. For this costume, wear a black dress, a double-stringed pearl choker, and black heels. Instead of Hepburn's brown hair, be sure you find a wig with Celeste's deep blonde hue.

Madeline Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon), Casual

That pink trench! That's really all you need to embody Madeline Martha Mackenzie. That, and a bit of a bossy streak. Under the pink trench, wear a white dress with a floral pattern like Witherspoon wears in the show.

Madeline Mackenzie As Audrey Hepburn

Normally, when we think of Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly, we think of the black dress and pearls — what Jane (Shailene Woodley) is wearing. Ever the rebel, Madeline dresses as Holly Golightly the day after one of her famously raucous parties. She wears an oversized white shirt and a sleeping mask. No pants needed for this costume.

Bonnie Carlson (Zoë Kravitz), Casual

When she's not teaching yoga, Bonnie is causing a stir with her dance moves at kids' birthday parties. To be Monterey's resident free spirit, wear a brown maxi dress, black sunglasses, and slip a white knit sweater to the bottom of your arms. Then, walk around dancing.

Bonnie Carlson As Audrey Hepburn

Though she wears loose, bohemian drapes in her day-to-day life, Bonnie's Audrey Hepburn costume is nothing short of glamorous. The outfit is an homage to Hepburn's portrayal of Eliza Doolittle, and the gown Eliza wears at the end of the film My Fair Lady. To achieve the look, wear a ton of sparkly necklaces, long white gloves, a tiara, and an ivory beaded dress.

The Three Runners

Celeste (Nicole Kidman), Jane (Shailene Woodley), and Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) frequently run along the absurdly beautiful running route in their backyards (literally). A group of three could easily dress as these characters during their jogs.

While working out, Celeste wears a long white shirt with a blue vest and leggings. Jane's in a green zip-up and what looks like black Soffe shorts. Madeline has a blue athletic sweater and black shirts.

Big Little Lies' Final Scene

Calling all ensemble groups: This is your best bet. During the last scene of Big Little Lies, the women — now joined together through a profound shared experience — visit the beach with their kids. Their outfits are very easy to emulate. Zoe Kravitz wears a fabulous hat. Shailene Woodley wears a gray sweatshirt, as usual. Reese Witherspoon wears jean shorts and a bright pink top.

Bring a cooler and a few beach towels, and you're set.
