Fashion Inspiration: Cruella

Raaaar

You know her as a Disney villain and wannabe puppy murderer (boo!), but Cruella Deville should also be considered a fashionista. Because the slinky black dress and red pumps are always in, and she was rocking the colored fur years before it came in style. She may be an inhuman beast (who ought to be locked up and never released), but she knows how to look fabulous. Although her hairstylist must really hate her to give her such a hairstyle. (And who can blame him/her...?)

Here's how to get the Cruella look using this season's trends. Without murdering puppies.
