Your morning fashion and beauty report: Halloween inspirations from Taylor Momsen and 'Glee's' version of 'Rocky Horror'

October 26, 2010 |  9:16 am

-- Our Jenn Harris has given you a lot of Halloween costume ideas recently, but here's another one, thanks to FabSugar: Taylor Momsen. The rocker and "Gossip Girl" actress can be recreated with some thigh-high fishnets, a slashed tank, short skirt, matte maroon lips and lots of eye makeup. Lots. 

-- For more Halloween fashion inspiration be sure to tune in Tuesday night when the cast of "Glee" recreates "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Think of the costume possibilities; Dr. Frankenfurter, Magenta, Riff Raff -- my head is spinning!

-- I never quite think of Hogwarts and fashion at the same time, but now comes word -- possible spoiler ahead -- that Fleur Delacour (played by Clemence Posey) will wear a wedding gown very, very, very similar to a dress from Alexander McQueen's 2008 collection. [Lela London]

-- Designer Issey Miyake has been tapped to receive Japan's prestigious Order of Culture, which is slated to be bestowed by Emperor Akihito next week at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo. [WWD]

-- Japan Fashion Week wrapped up its five days of runway shows last week, but the event attracted fewer international buyers than usual. [WWD] (Subscription required)

-- California pro surfer and part-time model Anastasia Ashley appeared on MTV's "World of Jenks" Monday and talked with host Tom Jenks about topics both personal and more public -- such as their shared enthusiasm for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animal, for which they have both been spokespeople.

-- Olivier Theyskens, already designing the Theyskens for Theory line that will debut for spring, has been named creative director for the Theory label. [WWD] (Subscription required)

-- Elie Tahari is telling people his passport is his new fashion accessory. In less than a month, the designer has been tending to business in Newport Beach (where he opened a boutique at Fashion Island), Beverly Hills, London, Istanbul, Turkey, Israel and New York. [WWD] 

-- Christian Siriano plans to expand his, um, cheap shoe line for Payless to 20 styles for fall 2011. [The Cut]
