For the month of October, I will be bringing you looks based on all of our favorite iconic horror movie women. First up, we have none other than Chris MacNeil, mother of Regan MacNeil, and a true hero because the second my kid started peeing all over my floor and making her bed shake I would have abandoned her in a dumpster. Chris was brilliantly acted by Ellen Burstyn in 1973, and throughout the entire movie she manages to look chic and beautiful even when her kid is communing with Cap'n Howdy. 

FUN FACT #1! 

I still have never watched this entire movie and even the trailer scares me to bits. 

FUN FACT #2! 

Even writing this kinda scared me. 

Here's how to get the look.

This dress isn't perfect, and if you are planning on this for your Halloween costume I would quick grab this dress which I think works better, but all you need is something ice blue with a bit of sparkle and you are good to go. For a daytime look you could go for a cream turtleneck and a pair of big black sunglasses and a camel coat. The main thing is the strawberry blonde bowl cut to complete your look.

So is The Exorcist the scariest movie you have ever seen? Will you be sleeping with all your lights on just from reading this post? I probably will.
