Miley Cyrus’ Tom Ford AmFar gown for halloween


It’s rough around the edges because I didn’t sew it; but I had some time on my hands so I pinnned up some pieces of cloth on my mannequin as an experiment to see how easy it would be to duplicate the style of the Tom Ford dress Miley Cyrus wore to the amFar AIDS research charity gala last night.

I was thinking of ideas for a post about making a last minute Halloween costume and this came to mind. I wouldn’t actually wear this myself. But it seemed like it would be easy enough to do. And minus the fact that I didn’t sew it to make it look neat and tidy, I’d say it was as easy to put together as I thought it might be.

If you would be so daring to go out wearing a dress that shows as much skin as displayed, all you need for this dress is a long black narrow skirt and 4 black bands for the straps. Miley’s dress actually has sleeves and all that but the fabric is so sheer it’s completely pointless and is probably more a nuisance than anything. So you wouldn’t need to worry about the sheer fabric part of the dress.

Making the dress costume

All you need to do is pin two of the 3 long straps like suspenders on the skirt at the position where they will cover your areola and nipple. Then take thethird strap and bring it from behind your neck to the front and make a criss-cross. Run one end of the criss-crossed strap under the left suspender band and run the other under the right suspender band. Pull them down over the sides of your breasts and fasten each end to the applicable suspender band with pins. Take the 4th shorter band and cinch your waist with it, fastening it in the back with a pin. Try to get it done as neatly as possible. Oh and you probably want to make sure however you put the dress together that you have a way to get it on your body once you’re done. I haven’t tried it but I have a feeling you can put this dress together directly on your body. Just make sure you use safety pins instead of stick pins.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
