Kelly Osbourne as “Carrie” for Halloween

Posted on November 01, 2013

One more celeb costume:

Kelly Osbourne attends the Bootsy Bellows Halloween Party dressed as “Carrie” in West Hollywood.

Not bad. Not difficult to pull off and kind of a cliche, but we admire the commitment to being kind of sticky and uncomfortable all night. At first we didn’t understand the wig because to us, Carrie White is Sissy Spacek, but she’s obviously channeling the newer Chloe Moretz version. Which… feh.

Lorenzo shocked Tom recently by revealing that he’d never seen the original film. Knowing how often Lorenzo tends to vow revenge on people who have wronged him (roughly hourly), Tom knew he’d love it. After assuring him that the average The Walking Dead episode was about a thousand times gorier than Carrie, he got him to sit down and watch. He was silent for the first 40 minutes or so and then blurted out “I WANT THEM ALL TO DIE.”

Tom has seen the film a hundred times with probably dozens of people, but he can’t recall any of them fist-pumping and shouting “YES!” over and over again during the last 20 minutes.

    I actually watched the new one…guys, GO SEE IT. It is as good if not better than the original. I LOVED the Sissy Spacek version (the grittyness, the romantic quality that it was shot and the thought that the crisp CGI effects would ruin) but the new one is actually really good.

    • stayl

      Please don’t support remake fever.

      • Emily Smith

        Hey some remakes/reboots don’t suck! For example, 21 Jump Street.

        • MilaXX

          To be fair that qualifies more as a reboot than a remake.

          • boweryboy

            Exactly. It was nothing like the tv series. Nothing at all.

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          Okay, that’s a point. And to be fair, I haven’t seen this new version yet. But at least see the original before going to see this, that’s all I ask!

        • VictoriaDiNardo

          Second “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” with Donald Sutherland was fantastic. Scarface. The Thomas Crown Affair. The Fly. Heaven Can Wait. Some mentioned True Grit. It can be done, it just seems that now days they just update the story and don’t re-imagine it.

          • boweryboy

            The 1978 version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers is not only a brilliant remake but also one of my top 5 favorite sci-fi movies of all time.

            It not only manages to bring an entirely new take on the story but also links itself to the original 1956 film without damaging its integrity.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            OMG-the 1978 remake is one of my and Mr. B3′s favorite films-briliant, chilling, and still heartbreaking when Veronica Wright’s character realizes she’s been betrayed.

          • Scoobydrew

            I’m sorry, nothing can beat the original The Fly.. “Help Me, HELP ME!!” is too awesome.

    • boweryboy

      Feh. I respectfuly disagree.

      The remake was pratically a scene for scene redo of the 1976 version. They even used the same script as the 1976 version with a few minor tweaks. With the exception of CGI effects and social media references, nothing new was brought to the table.

      • Sadie-Ann

        That’s what I’ve heard. I’m not anti-remake, but they have to bring something new to the table.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

    I love that story, TLo. Bless!

  • hughman

    I have the same reaction when I watch America’s Next Top Model.

    • Sarah

      DIE, whiny bitches, DIE!

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      I miss “The Starlet” with Faye Dunaway. That show had everything.

    • Lucía Gavello

      Lately I just watch the makeover episodes to see who cries. YOUR HAIR IS NOT A LIMB!!!

      • demidaemon

        Well, the current season had a lot of soap opera dramatics, which I found to be terribly delicious. Plus, “boner-man” Marvin.

  • Sarah

    I’ve never seen it either. I can’t do scary. The world is scary enough. And yeah, that blood is sticky as heck! But often mint-flavored.

    • mjude

      the bitter kittens would hold your hand so you can see the original :)

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

      I don’t do scary either! There was a recipe for fake blood in The Guardian the other day – equal amounts of maple syrup and golden syrup, red colouring and a touch of blue to get the right depth.

      • Sarah

        OOh, tasty. I guess REAL blood is actually also sticky, but thankfully I’ve not had opportunity to be doused in it.

        • Glam Dixie

          It’s actually not sticky, and it dries your skin out really badly, and it’s hell to get out from under your nails. Don’t ask.

          • Sarah

            Gross. Sorry!

          • Glam Dixie

            No biggee, it’s just a gross story but the blood wasn’t mine. ETA: And no one died or anything!

          • Sarah

            Oh, good. I wanted to be a nurse when I was little until I gave a blood sample for the first time, and promptly passed out as soon as it showed up in the hypodermic. I am a total blood wuss. My fella has a side job where he leads haunted tours around town dressed as a bloody dead guy (hence my knowledge of fake blood) and even him in costume grosses me out.

          • Glam Dixie

            Yeah, that would definitely be a problem, haha

    • Targettaste

      I’ll do scary, but not gory. Hitchcock was the master of scaring you without being gross.

      • Sarah

        Yeah, suspense I can handle a little. But sinister or gory, I can’t. I have problems with the imagery coming back when I’m trying to sleep.

        • Lucie Smith

          SAME. I wish it was something I could stop, because unfortunately now I’m on a medication that intensifies that and I end up dreaming about whatever my husband and I watch on the DVR before bed applied to someone in my own life. Usually it’s something that only sometimes has gory bits (Criminal Minds, for ex) but I’m feeling quite silly having nightmares about 8 and 9pm TV :P

          • http://skreened.com/bkcentral Sarah

            Bless your heart. I feel you. I watch CM and SVU, but they don’t bother me as much, even though they are totally horrific sometimes. I just watch them for the main players. But yeah, this has been happening to me my whole life. It’s like visual PTSD.

      • demidaemon

        I am totally with you. I also don’t like giant mutant babies, a la Akira, or anything involving baby formed scare factors.

  • Vaniljekjeks

    I’m a fist-pumping-”YES”-shouting, justified-death-scene-watcher myself!

  • mjude

    love that you saw it for the 1st time. sissy spacek will always be carrie.

    • Rhonda Shore

      And one of what is possiblly the most brilliant lines EVER is Nancy Allen saying, “I hate Carrie White” while she is giving Travolta a BJ.

  • Andrew Schroeder

    Wonder how much she got paid for this…

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    I had a similar reaction when I first saw it.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    Aw you guys should’ve put up her Christina Hendricks costume from Fashion Police that was insane!

    This looks a bit like Lindsay Lohan in her Liz & Dick premiere dress as Carrie (which funny enough LL was also Carrie).

    • MoHub

      Oh yes! The Hendricks costume was spot on.

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        Yes, she looked awesome as CH!

  • Danielle

    I’ve still never seen all of the original! :O

  • Ramon Figueroa

    Moretz is too pretty to be an outcast. I hated the remake in that by emphasizing Carrie learning to control her powers, made her demise even more unacceptable. It really ran counter against the whole female empowerment notion that I expected from a director like Peirce. Then again, she did “Boys Don’t Cry.” Doomed females all around.

    • MK03

      Pretty people can still be depressed/be abused/be bullied/have debilitating emotional problems.

      • Ramon Figueroa

        You’re right. Let’s just say she wasn’t different enough to make her bullying completely believable. Now if she had looked more like her mom it would have been more credible to me. Julianne Moore was scary. I think she was better than Piper Laurie, more pathetic. Laurie was kind of wonderfully vicious. Moore was more a conflicted mom.

        • MK03

          Ooh, it is really hard to top Piper Laurie. Now I want to see the new one more than ever.

          • boweryboy

            J Moore is good in her own way, but not as good Piper Laurie. She gives Laurie a run for her money, but Laurie captured the essence of the character from the novel better.

    • MoHub

      In terms of Carrie learning to control her powers: If you’ve read the original book, Carrie “takes care” of her mother very differently from the way Brian de Palma did it in the movie, and it had a lot more to do with Carrie’s ability to really control her telekinesis in a much quieter way.

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        True. The movie was more like Carrie lashing out at Margaret. But the book, she really did control what she was doing to her.

      • Lanus

        THIS. The way book-Carrie took care of Mom was so poetic, even as she was exacting her justice, there was this tender compassion for her mother, who she loved and hated all at the same time. I thought the movie did King wrong in that one. How does remake-Carrie do it? more like book or original movie?

        • MoHub

          I’m curious myself and haven’t been able to find out.

  • SewingSiren

    Ah yes the original Carrie. I remember very distinctly having to explain the girls locker room scene to my little brother, both of us far too young to watch an R rated movie. But if you could ride your bike to the movies and pay admission who cared?

    • boweryboy

      “But if you could ride your bike to the movies and pay admission who cared?”

      My goodness. Those were the days, weren’t they? My sister and I would literally spend all day Saturday at the movies sneaking into one R-rated horror movie after another.

      It mortifies me to think back on it now. We were both so young and unsupervised, but my mom knew where were so all was good. If I have children I would be terrified to allow them to do that today.

      • Qitkat

        There are a lot of great childhood rites-of-passage that no longer exist, sadly, today. I had a lot of bike and other freedoms in the fifties, just as my kids did in the 70s and 80s that would be almost unthinkable now. My grand kids are observed by a responsible adult every moment. I used to play hide and go seek after dark when I was seven. But after the Wizard of Oz terrified me along with an atomic bomb “comedy” (anybody remember those?) in the fifties, no way was I going to sneak into horror films.

      • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

        I was thinking about this the other day. My brother and I had so much freedom to just take off and walk or bike anywhere in the neighborhood. Of course, we also walked a mile and a quarter to school and back everyday, from 1st to 6th grade. It was a different time.

      • SewingSiren

        We also went to Tommy a real eye opener. And Beware !The Blob which was a comedy more or less but it scared the hell out of all of us kids.

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        Same here. My stepdad’s two sons and I snuck into “Jaws” when we were 12, 11, and 9. 9!! We snuck a 9 year old into “Jaws”!! And no one asked us where our parents were or if we were alone.

  • http://marshmallowjane.com/ marshmallowjane

    I haven’t seen either. I’ve been thinking about watching both of them.

  • tixilyttik

    Anything is better than that purple hair.

    • Targettaste

      My first thought was that her bloody Halloween Carrie hair looks better than her real hair.

  • Rhonda Shore

    The costume could have had tampons dangling from it, as in Nancy Allen’s “have another tampon CARRIE!!!

  • NoveltyRocker

    This anecdote is cracking me up, I can see it fully illustrated, children’s book style. About Kelly, I actually really love this hair color on her.

    • Rhonda Shore

      it really does look good…i was thinking that, despite the slatters, she looked very pretty, and that could be why.

      • NoveltyRocker

        Yeah, it seems pretty strange to get all this from a cheap costume wig soaked in fake blood but I think she looks pretty too.

        • Rhonda Shore

          Perhaps lavender-mauve isn’t the most flattering hair color for Kelly, or anyone else, for that matter…

  • tereliz

    The funniest part to me is that she seems to be (unintentionally, I think/intentionally, I hope) poking fun at some other blood—or meat—covered star with her poses in these handler-heavy pics. Except she has less crap on her face.

    Yes, I’m evil today. My fish died so I have a good excuse.

    • Sarah

      Moment of fish silence. :(

    • Sobaika

      :( RIP fish

      • tereliz

        Aw, thanks, y’all!

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          Awww… I’m so sorry to hear about Gobo the fish.

        • decormaven

          Sorry about your fish. Glad he had a home with you.

    • CeeQ

      I’m sorry about your fish =(

  • MK03

    The only problem I have with the original is the opening locker room scene. No teenage girl would EVER use open showers or parade around naked like it’s no big thang. But it’s still one of my favorite movies.

    • tereliz

      LOL, every time I see one of those no-clothes locker room scenes I just want to start singing “I LIKE BOYS!”

      Granted, I think everyone is fully clothed in that scene from Teenwitch, but whatevs.

    • Tracy_Flick

      Oh, I know. And just the thought of admitting sanitary products exist – nope, wouldn’t have happened. Not to mention having what seems like a 55-gallon drum of them available for pelting. It’s been forever since I’ve seen Carrie, but I recall thinking that scene was about as realistic as the cliche topless sorority pillow fight.

      • MK03

        Oh, I don’t know; I could definitely see a pack of girls pelting the “class loser” with tampons. Girls can get downright feral when it comes to bullying.

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          Hell, we used to do that to each other in fun after we saw “Carrie”! My friends and I would chant “PLUG IT UP, PLUG IT UP!” at each other when it was period time. Plus, the movie came out right around the time we all started our periods, we were all 12 or 13. Absolutely feral is right, the way we got our kicks!

        • Rhonda Shore

          Agreed. It was a brilliant scene whether it was realistic or not. I’m talking about the DePalma “Carrie.” Some movies shouldn’t be remade.

  • MoHub

    So glad Tom brought another convert into the fold.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    TOTALLY disappointed that she did the new Carrie instead of Original Recipe Carrie. Then again, no one is ever going to top Raja during the RPDR S3 comedy challenge – that outfit was inspired!

    Glad that Lorenzo finally saw the movie! I could quote the original movie for hours, under any circumstances!

  • Fordzo

    The best parts of that movie are the gym teacher smoking in the principal’s office and the REAL card catalog in the library.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      Isn’t that awesome? The 70s, man. The only thing better than that was the Mayor in “Jaws” smoking *in the hospital*!

    • Sarah

      Do you remember when you could smoke in school? In my state, the smoking age was 16 until the late 80′s and you could smoke in the vocational wing. After you used the card catalog to look up books, of course.

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        Girl, YES! I was in college in the 80s, and we used to bum smokes off our professors IN class! Our english prof would be lecturing, shaking out cigs to us, passing around an ashtray when he saw someones’ ash getting too long, discussing “Gulliver’s Travels” without missing a beat while we all puffed away together. I’ve quit since then, but do I ever remember being able to smoke everywhere!

        • Sarah

          Oh, yeah, in college? Of course you guys could smoke. I would’ve expected no less. And oh, I remember smoking on a plane. I thought there was no way a person could possibly get through a trans-ocean flight without it, and the little ashtrays still being on the armrest forEVER drove me nuts! (I’ve quit since too.)

          • NYCGlamourpuss

            I know, right? How long has it been since you’ve gotten into a car that had those teensy ashtrays built into the armrest! We used to stuff candy and gum in there, we were gross.

          • Fordzo

            One time, my mother had the brilliant idea to fill them with potpourri, and a couple weeks later they took my aunt somewhere at night. She lit up a cigarette in the back and set the ashtray on fire.

      • CatherineRhodes

        Remember when Basic Instinct came out and Sharon Stone taunted, “what are you going to do, arrest me for smoking?” And the audience laughed because that seemed so silly.

      • Fordzo

        Students at my HS had to stand outside to smoke, but I remember that when the teacher’s lounge door opened, a fog bank of smoke drifted out into the hallway.

    • Qitkat

      I watched The Ninth Gate recently, a really bad, not spooky at all movie about the devil, loosely based on The Club Dumas by Arturo Pérez-Reverte, which is a really good book. Anyway, the main character, a rare book expert and broker, played by Johnny Depp, smoked constantly while handling rare 16th and 17th century manuscripts. It drove me bonkers.

      • Sarah

        That is a good book. I didn’t know that movie was based on it.

        • Qitkat

          Don’t waste your time with the movie out of curiosity. Seriously, someone could make a far better movie around other elements of the story in the book. I haven’t read it in years, but I believe The Ninth Gate was a minor secondary plot element.

          • Sarah

            Oh, I won’t. Your description was good enough to make me not bother.

      • formerlyAnon

        I remember when supervising sound techs who didn’t want anyone to smoke while editing tape were considered uptight, or “too academic – this isn’t an archive.” The norm (where I was) was to open the booth door and it’d be like walking into a fog.

  • MilaXX

    I’ve never seen it either.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    I liked the original, so I don’t think I’ll see the remake. I’m not fond of remakes. But then, again I thought the same thing about “True Grit” and liked it much, much more than the original.

    • MoHub

      The remake of True Grit was much more faithful to the novel.

      • Sarah

        It was also Cohen Bros. So the dialogue was leagues ahead of any acting The Duke could’ve mustered.

        • MoHub

          Or Glen Campbell for that matter.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I’ve never seen the movie, no current plans. Me no likey scary movies, thanks to my introduction via my brother to Pet Sematary in which he kindly suggested it was a movie about pets. Imagine my horror when I started watching….scarred for life.

    Kudos to Kelly for bringing it with her costume…

  • SuYin Wong

    I want them all to die. EPIC.

  • CeeQ

    Seriously I love you guys.
    I haven’t seen the original Carrie either.
    But I am a giant scare-dy cat….I would run for the hills screaming.

    • formerlyAnon

      I’ve never been able to sit through it, but it’s not for scarey-ness. It’s the bullying and cruelty. I can’t watch that voluntarily.

  • JDreesen

    i think because i haven’t seen the remake, and possibly also because of the poofy/updated hair and the unfortunate placement of the blood (it looks splotchy and hand-smeared in places, not bucket-poured), i’m getting more of a Sharon Tate vibe from this look than a Carrie one

    i suppose the tiara should have been my biggest hint, buti still would not have guessed Carrie based on the photo alone.

    then again, all i have in my visual memory bank is the original [and lovely] Sissy Spacek, so maybe this looks more on-point to others.

  • Saturnine

    Somewhat off topic: why do so many otherwise young, healthy celebrities seem to need help walking or standing up? I always see a uniformed arm being gripped somewhere in the picture. I’m not asking in a Lohan-de la Huerta kind of way.

    • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

      It’s hard to see with all the camera flashes going off.

      • Saturnine

        Oh–didn’t think of that (never having been there, myself ;-) )

        • Rhonda Shore

          oh wow, blinded by flash for real!

      • CatherineRhodes

        Plus, because of all those cameras, it’s a sure thing a an embarrassing stumble will be widely photographed. The rest of us can be awkward out of the limelight.

    • Erica_Vuitton

      Drunk as fuck and you don’t want to fall is prob the #1 reason but I think it also happens when trying to get through a crowd of paps & fans & flashbulbs and into the right car. If you’ve ever seen videos of celebs trying to fight through a pack of screaming paparazzi… you’d want to hold someone’s hand too.

      • Saturnine

        That does makes sense; thanks.

      • marlie

        i didn’t see this until after I typed my post. Ditto. :)

    • tereliz

      Someone left a link in the Heidi post that has a short video at the end.

      When she’s leaving her building in her costume there is so much camera flashing that it creates a light vacuum for the video camera. It seems almost pitch black in between flashes, and stark white while the flashes are going. Definitely hard to see.

    • marlie

      In addition to the flashes, it seems like the paparazzi can also be a little aggressive in terms of getting into one’s personal space, so it might be helpful to hold onto a bodyguard or handler who can just push through the crush of people.

    • decormaven

      I at first thought she was wearing some of those cray-cray shoes that Gaga fancies.

    • papillon

      I was outside a show during Paris Fashion Week earlier this year and I saw how aggressively the paparazzos crowded around Kirsten Dunst (so pretty!) when she came out. They blocked her path and formed a circle around her shoving anyone (like me) who was nearby out of the way when she tried to get into her car. The only way for her to get through was with the help of her boyfriend and her bodyguards pushing them out of the way because when they asked them to move (repeatedly), they wouldn’t. It gets pretty crazy.

  • boweryboy

    Whatever you do, don’t ruin the experience by watching the remake.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    It’s a personal best for her. Seriously… I like this hair.

  • kt

    100% with Lorenzo. Bullies infect me with the rage

  • CatherineRhodes

    I love Lorenzo’s passion. I re-watched “Carrie” a couple of years ago, and didn’t remember that shower scene where all the teenage girls are walking around completely bottomless. Of course, this was before the days of Brazilian waxing, so each girl sported a massive bush. Can anyone imagine that being made now?

    • Sarah

      Every movie had some titties or something in it back then. It seems we got MORE uptight about that in the ensuing decades. It was like you got a little peepshow for the price of your admission.

  • angryparsnip

    I hope I am not being inappropriate but can I say at this moment how much I love Lorenzo !
    cheers, parsnip

  • ashtangajunkie

    A bit disappointing that she went with “new” Carrie, but can I just say how much I love real, honest-to-god Hallowe’en costumes? Scary beings, characters from scary movies, it’s all good.

    • Candigirl1968

      Sadly if she went with the old one, I’m not sure how many folks at that party would know what she was referencing.

  • formerlyAnon

    You are so kind to share your adorable Carrie-watching anecdote with the Internet. I smiled a big smile.

    • ampg

      I just came in to say the same thing! I love the “T and Lo at home” stories. :)

  • Karen North

    sorry if this has been worked over all ready but I think this is the best she has looked in quite some time. She went from being a train wreck cliche to …oh so glam. Lately my reaction has just been meh, seen better from her. So , sometimes she looks bad when she tries to look good and looks good when she tries to look bad? Don’t we all suffer the same fate

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    Lorenzo’s reaction to the original Carrie is yet another example of why you two were made for each other!

  • Lauren Dorsee Dillon

    I love you both. Damn if I’m not going to watch the original Carrie again today in your honor!

  • Sadie-Ann

    That is the greatest reaction ever.

  • MM4321

    Am I the only one who wishes Kelly O. would take a nice, loooooong vacation? The girl contributes what, exactly, to the world? Gets into catfights with other, legitimately-talented celebs. And criticizes how everyone dresses while calling anyone who criticizes her a bully. Sorry, I don’t get her.

    • guest2visits

      She’s beginning to effect me that way.

    • Gatto Nero

      Along with the Kardashians, she’s just rich, famous by association, and overexposed.

  • Katrin

    Comments like that are why I love TLo….

  • alyce1213

    The bucket!!

  • StillGary

    Glad Lo enjoyed it — but the gym teacher? She deserved an escape LOL! The Best Carrie costume I’ve ever seen has got to be Raja’s from RuPaul’s Drag Race a few years ago. He looked more like Julia Roberts than Sissy SpaceK but it was still fabulous!

  • guest2visits

    I finally saw Carrie several years ago on tv.
    For a horror film; it had such a heavy emotional and human behavior based story line.
    I don’t go for horror/slasher type movies myself, but the scariest thing I ever saw was a B-movie called “Prince of Darkness”. But I also think of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” as a one of the most horrifying movies ever.

  • Call me Bee

    Gee. Here’s hoping I never, ever cross Uncle Lorenzo.

  • papillon

    lol, I love the bucket.

  • Shawn EH

    I have a friend who had Lorenzo’s same reaction. Also, feh on the new version is right: great actresses, but why bother. All three are adrift in different movies without strong directorial vision.

  • KinoEye

    I saw the original for the first time a few weeks ago, and I’m right there with you, Lorenzo. Such horrible little twits. Much love to you both for giving me my first laugh of the day!

  • Gatto Nero

    Wow. A feat of engineering.
