She has loved and lost, but don’t forget that she’s grateful for her exes; and we’re grateful for her ‘Mean Girls’-inspired music video for ‘Thank U, Next.”
From the all-pink Regina George-inspired school girl outfit, to the cheerleader and the “Jingle Bell Rock” performance, our girl Ariana Grande gave us major Halloween costume vibes when her break-up inspired video came out last fall. It’s so fetch!
The ‘Thank U, Next’ video came out in November 2018, but we’re still bopping to the tune and loving the montage to some of the greatest rom coms of the early 2000s. Here’s how to recreate it for Halloween. All you need is a pink cardi, school girl outfit–and of course Ari’s signature long pony. Oh you like my costume? I just made it!
Pay attention to the instrumental bars in the opening of Thank U, Next. Sound familiar? It should, it’s from her 7-Rings video! So if you’re looking for an Ariana costume that screams, “all eyes on me”, check out this double-duty DIY “7-Rings” costume.
