9 Haute Couture Dresses to Inspire Your Halloween Costume

Stephane Rolland

The simple silhouette and sleek metallic texture of the fabric adds a skeletal feel to the dress. This is then brilliantly contrasted with a creeping black shadow from the bottom, reflecting a shadowy castle or haunted forest.

Christian Dior

This is certainly not a dress to hide within the shadows. The extravangant mish-mash of layered satin and silk creates the effect of an enchanted doll like figure. The Elizabethan inspired neckpiece also adds a haunted edge.

Christian Siriano

 The one shoulder dress is an effortlessly elegant vampish look further enhanced by the delicate layer of voile eerily shadowing the line of the shoulder. The use of voile between the layers of the dress creates a spooky illusion of a floating skirt, finished off with the gorgeously huge ruffles like dead roses blackened by the night.

Zuhair Murad

 Black Lace is a perfect way to add a pretty ingénue twist to the typical gothic Halloween look. The V-shaped sleeves and ornately shaped neckline are a gorgeous detail which breaks up the heavy skirt of voile and silk. This dress is certainly one for the Queen of the forest.
