Moms, when else can you rock big hair, tons of sequins, and disco makeup? Ok, besides the PTA meeting…
Go all out in this stunning Diana Ross Halloween costume and follow Refinery29’s super helpful tutorial!
Enter: actress and singer Amber Stevens-West. (Perhaps you remember her as Ashleigh on Greek?)
The 22 Jump Street star put herself in the very capable hands of makeup artist Sutan Amrull to transform into Diana Ross — right in front of their camera. Inspired by this iconic photo of Diana by Harry Langdon (circa 1970), the theme is disco: big earrings, big wigs, and big eyes.

For the outfit, glamour was always important to Diana and we hear that she even planned to be a fashion designer before the music thing took off. In the early days of The Supremes—long before Motown started supplying couture gowns—Diana was the one who designed and made the dresses, supervised the hair and makeup, and created the overall high-fashion look that was the group’s signature.
You can to complete the glam look with:
1. A gold beaded gown. This is a great dress, all the more so because it actually looks like something from the 60s.
2. A Diana Ross hair. If your own hair won’t do, wig it.
3. Big statement earrings. They have to stand out with the hair.
