‘Pope Squared’ and the ‘No More Sexy Costumes’ Challenge

Olivia Pope Pope Francis






Happy Halloween!  On Good Morning America this morning they showed a photo of Pope Francis and it hit me how much Pope attire resembles Olivia Pope’s Burberry Prorsum Double Dunchess Satin Caped Trench Coat from episode 1, “It’s Handled” of season 3 (am I the only one who didn’t see the resemblance??). Slap on a cross and head garb and you have a fabulous Popecostume!

This is inspiring a new challenge that I’d like to give all the ladies out there: when you are looking for a Halloween costume, instead of turning any occupation into a sexy one, why not take another route? I did a search for “Halloween costumes for women” in Google images and this is the 2nd image that comes up:

Sexy Halloween Costumes



And it isn’t surprising, is it? Inevitably this time of year, women everywhere are taking the uncreative route of selecting “sexy” Halloween costumes and I am so over it. So, why not turn tasteless sexy into tasteful stylish? Instead of a sexy French maid, why can’t you be a fabulous, fashionable one? Instead of a cutesy Cat Woman, why can’t you be a Couture Cat Woman? So ladies, though it may be a little too late for Halloween 2013, let’s plan on a Haute Halloween 2014.
