Bless her heart, our poor Anna Nicole. She was my favorite tabloid celebrity. All in all a sweet seeming lady who used her assets to wed a wealthy old oil tycoon and get all his money away from his kids. Haha to you terrible spoiled children. Though it ends in tragedy for almost everyone involved because it seems Anna, her son, and the kids of the tycoon all faced tragedy and death at early ages. Money isn't everything I guess.

I will also add that back in 2003, I was very boho hippie in my style. This was quite a change from my typical look! Though I always admired famous women who owned their inner "Venus" and wore it boldly.

Why It Works as a Costume 

I put this together with only a little bit of prep. Something in bright pink, a little dog as accessory, giant lips and curves (already provided to me via Mother Nature) is what it takes.

Cheap Pin Up Fashion Elements 

The blouse was from the thrift store. Puppy from Wal-Mart and wig from CVS. The make up, purse, heels and skirt were all things I already had.

Costume Styling Tips

Just outline way outside your natural lip lip with a darker liner to create the full lip loopk like that. Actually I used a brown eyeliner and blended it with a red lip liner then put on the red-pink lipstick and blotted.
