Lauren Conrad joins the circus for Halloween

Lauren Conrad’s Halloween costume was inspired by a Valentino dress.

The former The Hills star always goes all out on the spooky holiday, previously dressing up as everything from a zombie doll to a mermaid. For 2016, Lauren has chosen to be a circus performer, unveiling her decision on her website.

“This year, my girlfriends and I are dressing up for Halloween as (drumroll, please)... Circus performers!” she wrote.

“I came up with this idea a few months ago when I saw this sequin star dress from Valentino's Star Studded collection. I had a vision of putting a pastel twist on regular circus performer costumes and incorporating the star sequins from that dress into our own costumes."

Talented Lauren and her pals got to work making their own outfits, stocking up on pretty peach colored tulle, ribbon and feathers and blasting out circus music while they worked.

Despite saying it every year, Lauren has once again proclaimed that this is one of her favorite DIY costumes to date.

"We decided to go with a trio of characters: pastel circus ballerina, a mime and a tightrope walker. It took almost all day to make these from scratch (partly because we were laughing and goofing off most of the time), but we were thrilled with how they turned out,” she admitted.

Sharing photos on her website’s Instagram page, Lauren also uploaded a step by step tutorial to her website and asked fans to tag her in any photos of copycat versions of her circus look.
