Alexa Chung's Halloween CostumeMarion Curtis/Startraks

Women everywhere are copying her style following the debut of her Madewell collection, but for Halloween, Alexa Chung is going to wear something that’s all her own.

“A palm tree,” Chung told recently when asked what she’s dressing as on Oct. 31. “I’m going to wear brown tights and a brown leotard and I’m going to make a sort of headpiece into green leaves.” And no palm tree ensemble would be complete without a coconut bra, which the star also intends on adding to the outfit.

That’s not all she’ll be wearing this fall, though: the model admitted she’s coveting a few key items, including a black roll-neck sweater and a pale pink mohair coat by Philosophy. “That whole ’60s fall collection they did was perfect,” she said. And she’ll be drawing inspiration from her style icons — Keith Richards, Wednesday Addams and the Beatles, to name a few. Hmm … are we sure she’s not still talking about Halloween? Tell us: What are you going as for Halloween?
