Here’s what happened when we re-created Scream Queens’ most iconic Chanel looks

If looks could~ kill~.

We dressed like Scream Queens for a week

FACT: Scream Queens stylists got the job for a reason. If you aren’t watching it for Taylor Lautner, then you’re 3,000% here for the outfits.

0ne thing we’ve learnt from channeling our inner Chanel’s (pun intended), is that confidence can definitely come from feeling like your most #FIRE self. And that’s exactly what went down when we transformed into the Chanel's.

THE PREP:

Glammest glam room, EVER!
Glammest glam room, EVER!

If you’re well educated in your Chanel’s, you’ll know that their hair and makeup is always on freaking point. Enter [hair and makeup artist] who had the mission of transforming us into the baben’ Emma Roberts and Ariana Grande.

She whipped out her magic contouring brush and out of that glam room came Em and Ari 2.0.

We finally got to experience the ~power~ pink sparkles, a sleek high-pony and a fierce cat-eye can bring.

No wonder Ariana Grande is the sassiest kween to ever live.

“I felt about ten thousand times more sassy and confident”- Bianca.

THE LOOKS:

Pink and fur are SQ wardrobe staples. Working in an office has a very different set of staples, and that became very clear very quickly. Basically, we stuck out like sore thumbs – or more precisely like marshmallows. Fancy as heck marshmallows you buy from the David Jones food hall not Aldi.

Our outfit unveiling was probs the best part of this entire thing. Imagine walking into a wardrobe full of pink sparkles, fur coats and accessories you’d only see on TV. [Love heart eyes emoji].

“When I saw the silk, the fur and the cape dress, I knew I was about to be living my best life”- Sammy.

BLOODY GORGEOUS:

Scream Queens isn’t just a show about sorority girls who wear a lot of pink. It also happens to be a murder mystery which meant that we got to live out every girls dream and play with fake blood! (Kidding, kidding.) No, but seriously, that messy, gooey fake blood smelt delicious.

MEETINGS/WORK IN GENERAL:

Naturally, we had meetings to attend to during the day, and wasn’t that an experience.

“A bit of Chanel sass came out in my meetings… I could handle anything thrown my way” – Sammy.

Feelin' sassy in our meeting.

“Who isn’t going to listen to the girl dressed in hot-pink sparkles?”- Bianca.

Okay, so maybe we confused shocked stares as actually being listened to, but we made an impact, and that felt damn good.

THOUGHTS/FEELINGS:

One thing became very clear: your entire attitude can change just from how you look.

What is usually a (not mundane coz we work at DOLLY <3) – but average day, became something fun and exciting. Feeling like proper kweens during the week in the most glamorous outfits meant we had confidence in not only our looks, but our work.

“I felt like a more enhanced version of myself” – Bianca.

“The power of dressing a certain way can totally transform the way you behave, walk and interact with others” – Sammy.

Sure, Scream Queens’ style is totally OTT, but it shows that any change out of your comfort zone can be totally beneficial to your confidence, self-esteem and productivity.

Why not live your absolute best life erryday of the week?!
