The Kim Kardashian Look

Tight and Sexy for Kim

An animal print or brightly colored body con dress is a must. The tighter the better. To give this outfit extra Kardashian glitz, layer a faux fur coat or vest over the dress.

Heels for Your Kim Kardashian Dress-up Costume

At an adorably petite 5'2", Kim is hardly ever seen without her platform heels. Bedazzled bling or patent leather, strappy or a cute bootie heel all work.

Layer on the Bling

Choose your biggest dangly earrings, layer on the gold bracelets and pick out your shiniest rings for the most blinged-out look possible.

Plaster On the Makeup

Kim is not known to sport a natural look. It's time to spackle on the makeup. Give yourself flawless skin with a great foundation and powder. Go for big drama with a thick cat eye. Make those lips super shiny with your favorite lip gloss.

Add Fake Eyelashes

Go on and fake it, baby. Faux lashes are the perfect touch to finish the classic Kim makeup look.

The Must-Have Hair

Kim spends hours with her stylist to get the hair just right. Sans stylist (and to not spend hours with your blow dryer and rollers), opt for the perfect Kim wig. Give it extra bounce and shine with your favorite hairspray and shine spray.

Accentuate the Booty

Miss K is known for her derriere and your costume wouldn't be complete without one to match. Take a pillow, stuff it under your dress. To keep it in place, you can tape it to your body or you can use a pair of Spanx. The plus side to Spanx is it will smooth out the lumps giving you a backside that is bootylicious.

The Kanye West Look

Kanye Digs Simple

Keep the outfit simple. Baggy jeans and a t-shirt are good Kanye West costume ideas and will do nicely for this mogul rapper. Layering a leather jacket or denim shirt will give this costume an extra cool factor.

He Also Digs the Bling

Kanye West is definitely all about the bling. While he might feel good rockin' a simple T-shirt and jeans look, but he would feel naked without the bling. Head to your local thrift store or costume shop and load up on a couple gold and diamond chains and a gold watch.

Finish With Shutter Shades

Kanye brought back the popular 1980s shutter shades in his 2007 music video for "Stronger." Give a throwback to classic Kanye with your own purple, white or orange shutter shades to finish this look. A thick rimmed pair of aviators will also work.

Tip

Matchy matchy might sound out of fashion, but this celebrity couple often finds themselves in coordinating ensembles that are ultra chic. Keep it simple by choosing an all white or all black outfit.

Agreeing to disagree and opting for Splitsville in 2021doesn't mean that this famous pair can't still be a snazzy Kanye West and Kim Kardashian dress-up costume couple. Have some fun with it -- sometime during the evening you can stage and exaggerated-for-effect breakup as an in-joke.
