Scammer Halloween Costume: Anna Delvey, Elizabeth Holmes
So I’m not encouraging boss cheating, but the latest news from Anna Delvey got me thinking: why not dress up as a crook for Halloween?
On Monday, Netflix shared the first official images of Shonda Rhimes’ upcoming series, Invent Anna, recounting the rise and fall of a certain redhead of Russian origin who made beautiful New Yorkers believe that she was an heiress.
Julia Garner will play Delvey, who went viral after New York Magazine lifted the veil on her antics in a 2018 talk.
To pull off the crook look, try recreating one of her court outfits with a black dress, ballet flats, a slim black choker, and no feelings of remorse. Don’t forget his signature: a pair of big CELINE glasses.
If Delvey seems too overwhelmed, this year has seen several other scammers enter the chat.
DeAnne Brady, co-founder of multi-level marketing company and supplier of “stinky leggings” LuLaRoe, was the subject of a high-profile docusery, LuLaRich, which hit Amazon Prime in September.
Maybe you could dress like a pair of these leggings? There are ten of them on second-hand sites such as ThredUP.
Another famous fraudster, Elizabeth Holmes of Theranos – the health-tech company that intentionally misled investors and patients into believing her blood tests were working – is set to enter the third months of his high-profile essay.
To dress as a disgraced entrepreneur, all you need is a black turtleneck, chunky eyeliner, and a wide-eyed robotic expression plastered on your face.
Finally, we have Jen Shah, the The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast member who was arrested in March and charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering.
Much of her “Shah-mazing” look revolves around designer OTT outfits, complemented by a Louis Vuitton backpack. She particularly likes the all-over prints from Versace.
So, WTF, are you waiting? Reveal the charisma and get into the scam – extra candy, of course.
